A friend of mine is getting married next month, and she just asked me to play my violin in her wedding. (It would be violin with piano accompaniment.)
This will be my very first time playing in a wedding, and I've only been to, like, one wedding where I was old enough to see/understand what was going on. I'm not sure exactly how everything works for the musicians. Any tips?
Should I ask the bride what she wants me to wear, or should I just wear formal black? Is there any information I need to get besides basics like when and where?
My friend told me that she has some music picked out for me to play. She hasn't sent it to me yet, but do you think it's safe for me to figure on learning it in a month and having it ready to perform correctly?
Any thoughts, suggestions, tips, etc. would be helpful. As I've already mentioned, I totally don't know how this whole thing works!
