Today I am delighted to welcome Alive Network who share their Top 23 Songs for Weddings by String Quartets.

You may have decided that you want a string quartet to serenade your guests on arrival, welcome you down the aisle, or set a sophisticated tone for your drinks reception. Great idea!

A String quartet is an ideal choice for creating a relaxed and elegant atmosphere.

But… what songs do you want them to perform?

Most string quartets can draw upon a wide and varied repertoire so to help you make the perfect song selections for your big day, so I asked asked Alive Networks most popular string quartets for their advice on the most requested string quartet songs for weddings.

There are a few obvious classics in there, both wedding marches and some surprisingly modern tracks.
