    I would patiently explain that you would prefer to have those things in writing so you can keep them straight – if she just wants to tell you the info, offer to put it in the contract and then send it to her for approval (saving her the work). 

    Otherwise, I’d find someone else. Not because I think she’d try to screw you on any of these points, but because she should be more responsive to your questions.

    Always get it in writing!!  I do contracts for a living. Make all necessary changes you want & make sure they initial each change & written in thing.

    If they have a problem with putting it in writing you have a problem.  Move onto another musician!

    I’d be polite but firm in requesting the changes. I agree that you can even add them in and have her sign. If she doesn’t want to do that, she’ll lose your business. Which is okay because she plays at weddings every weekend after all. 😉 Just kidding.

    I’m sure she’s not out to get you. It sounds like everyone else she plays for is just not as attentive to what needs to be in a contract. But that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your peace of mind or what the services you’re obligated to receive.

    When it comes to your wedding day, there’s no reason for you to work with a vendor who you aren’t able to have full confidence in. I’m sure she’s great at what she does, but there’s always a “what if,” and trust me, girl, you’ll have plenty of those to deal with, without having to have an extra worry that could be fixed with a simple contract addendum.
