This question already has an answer here:

Call me odd, but I've come to enjoy the occasional encounters with female bards in certain bars around Skyrim. Something about their songs just seems to add a bit of coziness to the environment.

I'm aware that you can be married in Skyrim (I already have an Amulet of Mara), but only to a certain sub-set of the single women in the world.

Are any of these eligible bachelorettes Bards? If so:

  • Which ones?
  • If I marry one and ask her to move in with me, will she sing and play her songs in my house?

I like that female bard that played for me at the Solitude inn(?), told me she is the best bard in Skyrim. Forget her name. She was pretty. :sigh – ヴァイシャリ Dec 21 '11 at 15:55
@desaivv I'm not sure I've been to Solitude's Inn yet. There was another one recently though, that I grew a particular fondness for. I'll have to look around and find her again to point you there, though. – Iszi Dec 21 '11 at 16:56

Sadly my friend as of this posting (and current DLC availability) there are no Bards you can marry, male or female. Since you stated you can't use console commands I need not include a listing of those... but here is a list of who you CAN marry. Hope this is a consolation to your lamentations for a Bard so fair, well you get the picture, lol...

This is your link to marital bliss:

It describes how to marry, who you can marry, conditions needed and locations.

Hope this helped

Ooh, there's a Priestess of Dibella available? Too bad this is Skyrim, and not The Witcher. ;-) – Iszi Dec 21 '11 at 15:36
I so want to down-vote this answer, just because it's not the answer I wanted. – Iszi Dec 30 '11 at 17:35
if it's any consolation my thoughts about marriage in Skyrim was like you to marry a bard so i could hear songs throughout the house,and they are prettier than most to boot,i settled for Ysolda from Whiterun instead... – 2 SCooPS Dec 30 '11 at 17:43
