    Im thinking of hiring a duo for my wedding. One plays flute and one plays clasic guitar. What do you all think?
    I would really like to post the MP3 so you can listen to them and give me your amazing responses but I cant figure out how to!!!


    OK here is the link to the site if you wanna take a listen!

      Well I think it "sounds" great. However it didn't work out for us. We hired the duo for our wedding, the day before our wedding day we get a call from our WC that said they weren't going to do it unless we paid them $500.00, keep in mind our orginal quote was $120.00 for an hour. So I said hell no. They claim their "union" wouldn't let them do it for less. So we ended up with music but NOT AT ALL what we wanted.

        OMG Im so sorry Tammy! That sounds horrible.
        My sister had a quartet at her wedding and they were really amazing. These ladies arent part of any business, they just do it as a side gig, so hopefully they would be reliable. They seem genuinely interested though. I was quoted $300 for the hour which seemed pretty reasonable to me.

          Just get something in writing. IMO I think part of the problem was because Maye never called to confirm the appointment until the day before. And she should have gotten it in writing. I could have made a big issue out of it but I refused to let anything get to me while on vacation. I still think it would have been beautiful, so if it works out, go for it.

            Oh ya, for sure I would get stuff in writing. Thats one of the perks about not having a DW, you know for sure what has been told to each vendor. Im so glad that you didnt let it get to you though!!
