Tips for choosing your musicians
Don’t just go by price.
Cakes & flowers cost a fortune-& musicians are not objects but real people well worth the extra .
Meet your chosen group beforehand .
Hear then if possible beforehand.
Ensure they’re interested in you as well as the work you’re offering.
Heed their advice but ensure they’ll do what YOU want .
If you expecting over 95 guests & your chosen group doesn’t suggest mics, think again-NO string group can be heard over a large crowd.
Place musicians where they can be seen as well as heard–they’re not a CD , they’re real people & you’re paying for their services !
Check out their attire for the day.
Make sure someone in the group has experience of weddings–it’s your biggest day so experience counts.
Even if you want mainly modern songs , still add a few classical tunes for variety.
Even if you want mainly classical music, still add a few lighter tunes for variety.
