Well, I was going to say of course to can have him not display anything distracting, you are paying him. But, I just saw the related post about the advertising banner. If that is in the contract or he told you that he must hang it as it is part of the gig, I’m not sure you have much wiggle room. However, if it is not in the contract and he just sprung this on you, you do have an argument, either way just politely state that you are concerned it wil be too distracting during the flow of your wedding, good luck!

If he won’t budge, consider making it one of your DIY paper projects.  If it really bothers you you can suggest making a really nice banner that matches your decor.  Most people probably won’t notice though.

Ewww i hate advertisements like that. It’s worse in my opinion to have something so obvious versus subdued.

Just ask him if he HAS to and tell him it’s an eyesore and doesn’t go with your colors. Can’t he just have business cards like everyone else? Oye

Ah, ejs4y8, that’s exactly what I was going to say! Because obviously the banner is for advertising his services, see if he can just use business cards… totally better!

in fact, offer to have them placed at the tables. that’s STILL a better option!

Yeah I’d be totally against the banner. I like the business card idea better but I wouldn’t go as far as putting them on the tables. I think if people are interested in his services and want more info from him/business card then they would just go up and ask him.

I was at a function awhile ago and was interested in his services and I just went up and asked him and he was happy to give me his card.

echk- I hate when DJs do that. Our band told me they were going to have a banner and I told them that we had spent so much money on decor and I really didn’t think it would fit. I guess you could try that route? I dunno… I’m hoping for your sake that you can convince him to nix the banner!

if he wants to advertise at your wedding and it isn’t in the contract- you should charge him. Seriously- not ok.
