    I've got a problem here.....

    My uncle was supposed to be our wedding ceremony music. He was going to play the guitar. He's a really good musican and it's free but my mom just informed me that she doesn't think he can do it. He might not be able to make it. So I go searching for some other musicans and wanted something unique so I asked Jill Higgins, being that she's in the Charleston area, if she had any recommendations and she turned me on to this Bob Williams guy.

    He's really nice and the duo is awesome, it's a guitar and violin duo and they do have an awesome repotoire......he has a lot of Ben Folds who is my FAVORITE! The problem is...........they charge $450 an HOUR! Our dj is $600 for 4 hours!

    Trust me I know about the talent and the equipment I get all that I'm a photographer. But I just have a hard time justifing this to my FI. He will flip! I really need to stop the spending......

    So any advice?

      How long is your ceremony? If it is only a 1/2 hour can you negotiate 1/2 price? I guess my opinion is if music is important to you then go for it, its your wedding day. Flowers are important to me, so I am getting centerpieces. Its just a matter of priorites.

        Yeah it's important.....but not sure it's that important. But that's a good point I just figured having music playing while everyone is taking their seats and waiting for the ceremony to start....we have about 100 guests and every thing is happening in the same house, ceremony upstairs, reception downstairs and outside. I guess I could call and ask my dj if they could recomend anyone. I just really liked the uniquness of the music.....but will anyone really remember it?

          I had the same problem too. We had to seriously cut expenses because things started adding up much faster than we expected. So we cute out live music and are doing a CD with speakers and the whole shabang. But its free!
