For those of you using bands at your wedding, what has your experience been as far as putting the full amount down (in 3 separate deposits) prior to the wedding? I found a great band that I would LOVE to use (came recommended) but they are NOT budging in the contract about the final balance…they insist it is their policy to be paid in advance of the wedding as opposed to the day of. Is this common practice?? My brother-in-law who is an attorney is insisting this is crazy and NOT to use them because of this…

I don’t think it’s uncalled for to be paid in advance for services rendered. Have you signed a contract with them? All vendors are different – some accept cash the day of, some won’t, it really depends on their past experiences and their policies. I don’t think it’s a reason not to hire someone.

I don’t know if it’s crazy, but I wouldn’t do it. I understand vendors want to protect themselves, but I want to protect *myself* too.
