- Wedding: May 2011
This whole time we’ve been wedding planning we have been saying we need to have a band. We both love live music, and the one wedding we’ve been to together had a live band and it was just awesome how they got the crowd going. I really don’t like DJ’s, I’ve never seen a good one.
But today my fiance threw me for a loop, and now I’m kind of angry.
I asked our friend (the wedding we’d gone to) how much her band cost. $7500 for a 7 piece. To me, its outrageous. We just can’t afford it. I’d rather put that money towards a better honeymoon (which is also looking meager). I had thought maybe MAYBE we could afford 4k, maybe only a 4-5 piece. But my fiance told me today just to forget it. Just get a DJ, because he wants the versatility of a 7 piece, and if we start skimping it will just be crappy. he says all these things without doing any research of his own, despite the fact that this was his ONE wedding task. He didn’t want to start looking until 6 months out, and we would have been nowhere then. Why does it have to be all or nothing? I had this whole vision of my wedding around having a live band, and now he just wants to nix it! He doesn’t even want to look or shop around. He says I’m being ridiculous, but we’ve been talking about a live band for 9 months now!! I’m so frustrated…
