  • Wedding: September 2012

@KJGobx13:  I’m actually really surprised you found two..I didn’t know we had any around here! 🙂 I’d venture to say if you found those two, that’s probably all there is. Ukulele music isn’t a popular addition to our weddings around here. I’ve actually never seen one at an OBX wedding. I have seen steel drums a few times!

As local bride & wedding vendor myself, I can totally see both sides. I know it sounds like a lot of money for just three songs, but keep in mind that it won’t be just 30 minutes out of their day. By the time they drive there (easily 30 min – 1 hour b/c our area is spread out), set up, play, pack up, it’s easily a couple of hours. With musicians, they typically charge a flat fee regardless of how many songs they play, because if your ceremony is during a standard ceremony time they can’t book another wedding to make up the cost difference of cutting a deal for only playing a few songs.

What part of the ceremony will they be playing? Just the processional? During the ceremony? I’d suggest maybe having them playing before the ceremony starts, as guests are arriving, or even during cocktail hour. That way you’re getting the most for your money.

@KJGobx13:  My dental hygienist’s FH learned how to play it the ukulele for her sister’s wedding using YouTube. Do you have a music minded guest who might volunteer?
