Thinking of hiring

Recommended Posts

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!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
