Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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’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 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 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 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. 

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.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

David was amazing. He was perfect for our wedding at the Red Butte Gardens. He spoke so eloquently but made sure to add some fun quirks that made our wedding perfect. Prior to the wedding he was great with communicating and making sure everything was crystal clear. David is the perfect mix of cool, collected and fun and spunky. You wont regret having David in your wedding. Thank you for making our day perfect.

Becca is a treasure. She made planning our wedding so easy and so stress free. She is so organised, and so resourceful. She literally took care of any obstacle that came up during our wedding planning process. In addition, she did a beautiful job for our wedding decor. Everything was so perfect and done so tastefully. She really listens well and understands what her clients need. Our wedding was so beautiful, so well organised, and she does not let us go over budget. I would recommend Becca for all planning and decor needs. ❤️❤️❤️

Josh and Jennifer are a great team. They covered my entire Indian wedding videography. They contacted us prior to the event to know about the customs, traditions and rituals of our wedding. They were punctual and very professional. They made us very comfortable during the shoot. We saw a couple of pics during the shoot and they looked amazing. We are just eagerly waiting for the videos, I’m sure it will be awesome too :) We would like to thank them for covering our wedding.

Our wedding officiant cancelled two weeks before our wedding. Rev. Earl Dowdle not only came go our rescue, but made me glad our original officiant cancelled. The ceremony he prepared for us actually made me cry just reading it and I'm not an emotional person. He was very professional and he and his wife were so sweet and nice, and friendly with everyone. I'm glad they became part of our wedding and I would highly recommend him and will!

Darby was very professional over emails & in person. He played the songs we requested for my wedding at the appropriate times. The only (and major) downfall was the songs meant to get people dancing during the reception. They were not at all our style (which we discussed the day before with him & our wedding planner). My wedding planner & multiple guests even gave him a long list of songs to play - he didn't even play one. Maybe our music style just didn't click with what he's used to.

Rev. Christopher did a fantastic job for my wedding. He was very professional, punctual, friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. He did a good job of making us feel comfortable and did a great job creating a custom wedding service with all our request in mind. Rev. Christopher was very helpful from our first meeting all the way to the ceremony. I would certainly recommend Rev. Christopher for any wedding service. You can tell he cares about each service and does a great job!

Unfortunately, Doug did not meet our expectations as our wedding reception DJ. He did not play music in between sections—we were often asking why the music wasn’t playing... there were several songs we requested that weren’t played. His announcements were muffled and unclear. Our wedding was fantastic, but the DJ was disappointing.

We chose DJ Remix for our son's wedding reception after seeing great reviews on his work. I can say we were very pleased with our choice. He did an excellent job and was a class act! Thanks, John, for all that you did to make our son's wedding an even happier occasion!

The food was AMAZING! Paul is a thorough professional, and the food quality, and the taste were excellent. The service was beautifully presented, and all the guests at our wedding thoroughly enjoyed the food. The wedding cake was so beautiful, and was made exactly the way we envisioned. The cake was delicious, and the cupcake tower was perfect and tasted amazing. He is definitely our choice for our future events. He is WONDERFUL!

Jennifer was super easy to work with. We had no idea what we wanted to do for our wedding. She had a wonderful outline prepared for people just like us. She was very flexible, I was running all around the valley getting stuff ready for the wedding and she invited me to her home to hammer out details and drop off her fee. She showed up to our wedding an hour and a half early to go over everything with us, while there she offered to pitch in and help with anything that needed to get done. All in all she was phenomenal, I could not recommend her highly enough.

Andy was absolutely fantastic to work with, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. We hired him to do our wedding photography, and from the first time we met him, he was 100% focused on understanding what our vision for the wedding was and how he could best capture it. He was constantly in contact and incredibly responsive. He had even gone to the location a few days before our wedding to scout out good photo opportunities and get a sense for the lighting we would be working with. On the big day, he was on time, totally prepared, and did an awesome job guiding us through the photo shoot. His posing directions were clear and helpful, and his eye for perfect compositions and shockingly good candid shots meant that we got so much more than just the typical wedding photos. I had expected that due to it being an outdoor wedding in the harsh sunlight of afternoon, the photos would be “only okay”, but they actually turned out to be incredible - I could not be any happier with them. On top of it all, he sent a huge bulk of our touched-up photos to us later that same day.
