That is tough. I am assuming the owner was hostile toward you because his wife pressured him to give you a discount, and maybe he hadn’t wanted to in the first place.

FH has a musician friend who plays in various jazz groups. We asked him soon after getting engaged if he’d be interested in getting a group together to play for our wedding. He would say vague things like "yeah I’m sure we can work something out". It took months to get a quote, and even then it’s not a proper quote, he and FH discussed it over Facebook messages! This makes me a bit nervous, not about him so much but his other band members who could claim we promised to pay them more than we did. It’s not like we are getting this for free – we are paying them their proper rate (minus the friend’s rate, it is his wedding gift to us) so I did expect him to be more professional about it. FH was a bit disappointed too, but of course thinks I’m just being silly 🙂 I think this is the danger with hiring friends, the lines get too blurry. Much easier in my opinion to hire strangers! I hope you can sort something out with your "friendor", I wouldn’t like that hostility (I haven’t had any hostility, just vagueness!) Good luck 🙂
