Your burning questions: answered

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a wedding officiant during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The safest way to conduct a consultation during COVID-19 is virtually. Ask wedding officiants near you if they can have a phone call or a virtual appointment over video chat. If they can, make sure to ask them any questions you have about upcoming work. Discuss what precautions, if any, they have in place to ensure safety. You might consider asking if they accept digital payments or if they can complete the work remotely, without any in-person contact. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Do wedding officiants offer remote or virtual services?

Reach out to wedding officiants in your area, and ask them if they can offer a remote or virtual ceremony. Some officiants may be willing to meet in person while maintaining 6 feet of distance, while others may prefer to conduct the entire service over the phone or a video call service such as Skype or Zoom.

Familiarize yourself with the social distancing rules in your community, city and state, and move forward only if both you and the officiant are comfortable with the arrangement. 

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

Reviews for Ashburn wedding services

Amy Miranda did a WONDERFUL job! First of all, her prices are significantly cheaper than any wedding makeup artists. It was $150 for me (bride- trial and wedding day), and only $50 per bridesmaid. She listens very well during the trial to ensure that you look perfect for your wedding day. She used airbrush and fake eyelashes for no extra charge, whereas most other artists charge much extra for both of those. On my wedding day she showed up 15 minutes early, which saved a lot of stress for me in worrying that everything would go according to plan. If you want to look beautiful and be stress free on your wedding day for a GREAT price, go with Amy Miranda Makeup! -Natalie S.

Rev.Diane Hirsch officiated our wedding two weeks ago and I am so glad I came across her page on thumbtack. She met with us prior to the wedding to get a sense of who my husband and I were. She made to sure to prep us accordingly so we felt relaxed and prepared to say our "I do's". She showed up early to the rehearsal and ceremony to make sure all the wedding vendors were ready for us. She was spectacular, we couldnt have asked for a better officant for our wedding. Thank you Diane!!

Unlike the standard $2000+ wedding photo offers we received, Metin understood that we were having a small, family wedding with limited needs and a limited budget. He met with us at the venue weeks before the event, then came on time and worked tirelessly for four hours to chronicle every moment of our ceremony and reception. We are very happy with the memories he provided us. Highly recommended.

Mary did an exceptional job on my flowers! I must have changed my mind about ideas 100 times and she worked with me and customized it to exactly how I liked it! She worked with my schedule and delivered the flowers personally to me the day of my wedding and they truly turned out beautiful! She has amazing prices and I would recommend her to anyone!

Slable provided DJ, MC, and uplighting services for our May 2015 wedding. Just as a reference point we are a mid-twenties couple and they did a fantastic job of sticking to our playlists and taking on guest requests. They were professional and easy to work with; they went the extra mile to ensure that all names were prounounced correctly and they made a valiant attempt at keeping the reception timeline on track. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for for DJ services!

I hired Emily to do makeup and hair for both me and my daughter for my son’s wedding. She did a phenomenal job, listening to what we wanted and giving us both 2 different unique looks to match our dresses and what we wanted. She was on time and brings all of her own equipment. We were worried about wearing masks with full faces of makeup but it lasted the entire day, even with taking masks on and off. Our up-dos and curls lasted even with a really windy, outdoor ceremony. We were thrilled with her work!

Had my first make up artist back out at the last minute and lucked out into finding Amy. She was amazing! KNOWS her STUFF! Excellent skills, tons of high end make up, great with colors and shading! Made my mom and me look amazing! Best I have ever looked! :) Have had my make up done few a few weddings before and had another trial previous. Amy is the best artist I have worked with. Make up lasted and looked flawless for hours on end, even in the hot humid VA summer weather! WONDERFUL!!!!

• Norman did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding. We couldn't be happier with it. Since we are military and our families don't live here one of our main qualities we were looking for in an officiant was someone who could make us feel comfortable and for the ceremony to not feel like a stranger was preforming it. The first time we met him we already felt like we knew him for years. His questionnaire he has his couples fill out really helps him achieve this. He uses it to create a personalized ceremony which made our ceremony so special and meaningful. Our ceremony was perfect. He captured our love story perfectly and it flowed very nicely. He listened to what we wanted and didn't want in the ceremony. He traveled quite a distance as well for the ceremony which we really appreciated. We would 100% recommend Norman to be apart of anyone's special day.

Donnell was amazing! He is very easy to work with! When we met him for the first time he listened to all of our concerns and was able to answer all of our questions. A DJ needed to be booked for my sister's wedding reception ASAP and he was so accommodating and understanding. Not to mention his prices are great! Everyone at the reception loved him! He took requests and was able to get a vibe of the kind of music our guest enjoyed. Certain things had to be changed around in the reception schedule but he went with the flow and everything went smoothly. The guests raved about him and kept coming up to me saying how great of a DJ he was! If you need a DJ for your event with really affordable prices, look no further because he's your guy. I will most definitely be recommending him to all my friends and family and will be hiring him in the future for any events that will need music entertainment! I know I've already said this a million times but thank you Donnell! We truly appreciate you!!!
