- Wedding: April 2013
Thanks to Wedding Bee (and I’m pretty sure it was @Miss Jackrabbit who said she called or wrote to the schools looking for students to bid on playing). Well, I emailed about every school I could think of for 1-ukulale player, then 2nd a violin(there arent that many folks who play ukulale around here).
Anyways, not only did I get LOTS of replies from folks who were willing to pass my info along to students, and said that would be reasonable, but I actually got an instructor willing to play ukulale at our ceremony -within our small budget ($100)!!!!!!!!!! this guy is great, said he’d be willing to play beatles renditions, some other songs I’d requested and I just couldnt believe it! I am SO stoked!
My thorough readings on the boards and dedication to reading through all of these blogs has paid off in SO many ways!
Dont be too proud ladies! I put it out there and bartered my way through:
-date moved to April-instead of Feb (with the February rate) just for asking.
-custom menu-w/lunch pricing
-getting several local florists to order my flowers on the cheap (although i’m undecided on that-may have to pay the whole foods florist to help me, see earlier post today)
-our officiant, our photographer, our cupcakes (online baker) all to do a custom bid for us-way cheaper than most I’d seen out there
all just for asking 🙂
