Meagan King • I think this comes down to the suitability between the host and the musician. Perhaps, choose your musician similarly to the way you would decide on other details of your special day. Your clothes, your venue, your decor - it all comes together to communicate who you are as a unit and how you express love. If you find a musician who naturally fits with your tastes and values, the cringe won't be a factor and the performance will be more authentic. It helps to request songs that are within the musician's preferred genres, or at least possible to interpret with the instruments they have. If a song is particularly important to you, consider including it in your audition requirements.
