It depends. Of course, string quartets have a more resonant and fuller sound than a string trio thanks to their larger size. With the fourth instrument, music will have richer harmonies and more volume, which is especially important if you want to be able to hear the ensemble over background noise at a busy event or wedding. Most classical music and pop songs arrangements are written for string quartet, but can easily be adapted for a string trio.

If your wedding reception will take place in a smaller place or if your budget is a little tight, a string trio is a perfect choice as it can still deliver a full, wonderful sound. String quartets who regularly perform at weddings will usually be able to provide string duo, string trio and even string duo (violin and cello) options.
