    Hi-

    My wedding coordinator at Dreams is recommending a guitar harp duo for the ceremony music and coctail hour.

    I love the idea of it think it will be cute.

    My concern is that she quote me a price of $350 per hour.

    Is this a normal price?

    Are there other similar vendors you recommend getting quoted from?

    I just want to try to make sure I am not getting ripped off.

    Thanks!

      Hi Erika,

      I paid $350/hr for a Mexican trio (harp, guitar and bass?-can't remember the 2rd instrument). We were quoted prices of $300-$400 for musicians ranging from a solo guitarist to trio's. Seems like that might be the going rate.

        I'm being charged $450 USD for 45 minutes for a violinist... They originally quoted me $650 and I said "forget it" and they came back with this price instead.

          That sounds right. I got married at the Dreams Cancun and paid $600.00 for our Mexican Trio

            I am using the harp trio and they are amazing! They auditioned for me and then the following night they played a coctail party I attended. They were lovely! I believe we are being charged $280 an hour for the 3 people. I don't have any communication with them as my chef booked it for us. I found most musicians to be about $300 an hour as we are using a mariachi band of 10 which is $484/hour, 2 spanish guitarists (one is $275 and one is $350), and the harp trio.

            Good Luck!

              Thank you so much to everyone. This is exactly what I needed to hear. Seems very average.

              Thank you, Thank you , Thank you
