Questions to ask your San Antonio Wedding Musician, Part One

Welcome back to Austin wedding music / San Antonio wedding music 101! If you’re planning your wedding, it’s likely that this is brand new territory for you. As you already know, there are seemingly endless details, including music decisions. MVSJ will work closely with you, guiding you through the entire process. But it doesn’t hurt to be prepared and informed when meeting with your musician(s). Don’t make any assumptions – ask these and any other questions on your mind.

  • Do the musicians have a set repertoire or will they work with you on the music you want?
  • Are they certain they’ll be able to play your desired set of music?
  • How much will their services cost? What are the payment terms (amount and payment schedule)?
  • Are they available for the ceremony rehearsal (if you want them to attend)?
  • How many weddings have they played for (or how often do they play for weddings)?
  • Have they played for a wedding at your location? If it’s a church wedding, have they played for a wedding in your church’s denomination?
  • When do you need to make your agreement official? What does that involve?
  • Do the musicians have the sheet music for the pieces you want?
  • If you intend to include other musicians, have they worked together in the past?
