Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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 Salisbury wedding services

I want to start off by saying that Susan made our day absolutely 100% special and spectacular! I had originally hired another individual to officiate our wedding. He seemed quite nice and sounded like he was willing to meet with us to go over the details. When we discussed price he was going to charge us about $800 since he was out of town for our wedding in Salisbury, MD. After we had unofficially booked this officiant, I e-mailed him several times to set up an appointment to go over our ceremony. I received no reply. At this point it was only 4 months before the wedding, and with no response from this individual I decided that our association should be cut short. With 4 months to the wedding, I was in desperate need to find an officiate that would listen to myself and my husband's needs. We both come from different religious backgrounds and the ceremony was the most important part of the wedding to me. Along comes Susan to save the day!. She wrote a very detailed and sincere e-mail to me through my thumbtack search offering her services. She was extremely affordable, and we decided to set up an appointment to meet. When we met, it was apparent that he title of "Your Wedding Your Way" really came to life! Literally anything we wanted or didn't want in the ceremony she took care of. She works with you to go over every single detail of the ceremony until you are fully satisfied. The day of the wedding Susan said the words of the ceremony perfectly and was so sincere. I absolutely would recommend Susan to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. She will be sure you are happy, and your wedding definitely is done your way! - Joy Kincaid - Wedding: May 1, 2016

Greg did an amazing job for our wedding. He was great to work with and did everything we asked for and made the day so special. He knew exactly how to transition from song to speeches and it all flowed so great. We would highly recommend him for your event as he is a true professional. The up lighting he provided looked great. Our wedding was awesome and we were so happy with him as our choice for our DJ.

Susan was absolutely wonderful! She was quick to respond and helpful with any questions we had. Other officiants responded when we were searching for one but I felt Susan's response was much more personal and I'm so happy she did our ceremony! I highly recommend her as a wedding officiant!

David was amazing to work with! We are so blessed that we found him to officiate our wedding! He is so kind and you can really tell he loves what he does and he loves bringing 2 people who love each other together. He has a passion for his work and it shows! He did a great job during rehearsal and went above and beyond our whole wedding day to make sure it went well, smooth, and stress free! We invited him and his wife to be a part of dinner and the whole celebration as well as to do our dinner blessing! He was there every step of the way! He got along so well with our families and everyone involved! We cannot say enough good things about him! HIRE DAVID, you wont be disappointed!!!!

360 productions was extraordinary. The videographer as well as the photographer worked like a well rehearsed team. They captured every moment involving my daughters wedding and reception flawlessly. There staging of shots as well as natural shots were far and above my expectations. Between the videographer and photographer not a single moment was missed. The guests were amazed at the conscious and meticulous efforts they made to capture every moment. I referred 360 productions to approximately seven guests. 360 productions communicated many times before the event. Showed up early. Watching 360 productions work was spectacular. There over the top work ethics and tireless energy created the memorable moments my daughter and son in law can look back on for years to come. My only regret is that there are only five stars to rate them. Without a doubt 370 productions is far superior than five stars. I would not hesitate to refer 360 productions to anyone. There may be others out there as good as them. But I guarantee there is no one better. Thank you Nate for the excellent job you company did for my daughters wedding. God Bless ( father of the bride ) Bill.
