Greetings and Happy New Year!
We are excited to be starting our new Blog feature in response to lots of questions for advice from our clients, especially those who are planning a wedding.
A few of the topics we will cover include:
1. The most common mistake bridal clients make: choosing vendors or services based solely on price, not quality. A wedding is a once-in-a life-time event, so you can't do it over next year like a birthday party. If the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Prioritize the services most important to you, and ask for advice on saving money from your vendors. Always work with professionals. (source: Bridal Tweet).
Other topics will include the best choices for music for outdoor weddings; Using professional vs. non-professionals and the advantages of working with OUR agency; What to plan for/how to accommodate the musicians at an outdoor wedding; how to make sure your requests will be honored; how to get the very best value for the services you want; what to do if the band you want is already booked, and many more.
Our four top words of advice:
1. Book as early as possible, especially if your event is on a
Saturday between June and the end of September.
2. Start On Time, especially the ceremony.
3. Always use a contract.
4. Give up on trying to "micro-manage" every minute of the day...relax and go with the flow, knowing you have hired the finest professional musicians in the area who are dedicated to working in the spirit of cooperation and graciousness, insuring your event will be the very best it can be! Even if YOU are nervous, they won't be, this is their job to give you "Peace of Mind".
More information coming soon.
