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 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.

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 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.

Brother Paul did outstanding on our wedding! I could not be more pleased with how it turned out. He was very attentive to how we wanted to personalize it. Since the wedding, we have received numerous compliments on the ceremony. I highly recommend going with Brother Paul if you are looking for someone to officiate your wedding!

After speaking with Pastor Dan I knew he was the right person to officiate our wedding! He was quick to contact me back and wanted to get to know me, and my fiancé. He is open minded, pleasant, easy to talk to! He wanted to make our wedding about us and the things that are important to us and our family. He is non judgmental, supportive, and friendly. I would recommend him for a wedding or as a counseling/life coach because he has the experience and skills to help and to make your wedding personal and memorable!

I don't understand how a person can turn a couple away on the day of the appointment. In my application I stated it was a same sex wedding. When I get to appointment. Frist question is Is this a same sex wedding. And turns us away. I'm not qualified to do same sex weddings. Really. Very disappointed in this. I will go elsewhere. Where I will be treated with respect.

Phill was very professional and always very responsive. He would usually reply to any of our concerns within a day of emailing him. He even agreed to travel to meet with us and was flexible enough when we had to change the time. His comprehensive wedding planner package ensures that you get exactly the wedding you want and his prices are very reasonable. Phil is also very personable and upbeat, he'd make any wedding day great!

Jessie did a wonderful job with our wedding photos! She was so easy to work with throughout the planning process and even though we had not met her before the day of our wedding, she was very comfortable to work with while taking photos. Within three days of our wedding she sent us over 20 sneak peek photos, all of which are absolutely beautiful and authentic representations of the two of us, which is exactly what we wanted. Jessie is a thoughtful, talented and professional photographer and my husband and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Everything about PK Productions service was great! Phil showed up to our wedding reception venue in Green Bay (a bit of a drive from Oshkosh) well beforehand to get set up and ready to go on time. He played the music we listed on the wedding planning guide, happily played requests from our guests, and was interactive in getting people out on the dance floor (which is hard for our families). We didn't have a typical reception but Phil was professional throughout and dressed the part. We are extremely satisfied we chose Phil as our DJ and have already recommended PK Productions to another couple planning their wedding!

The communication leading up to the wedding was fine, but the service we received on the day of our wedding was terrible. Weeks leading up to the wedding, I put in a lot of hours creating a playlist of exactly what songs we wanted the DJ to play. Not only did the DJ not stick to the songs on our list, he played inappropriate songs right away in the night when little kids were just starting to dance. I was horrified when the 1-10 year olds all came out to dance and that disgusting "Discovery Channel" song by the Bloodhound gang was on... a song that would have been on my DO NOT PLAY list, had I even thought someone might play that at a wedding with children... He never played my father-daughter song, which I requested to be played later in the night. And when I told him it was time for the grand march, he just said "I havnt been paid" and refused to play the grand march song until we went and got his check (which was all filled out and ready to go, but we just hadn't handed it to him yet... I mean we probably had other things on our mind at the moment since it was our wedding day...). The sound wasn't great either - way too loud at times.. Anyway, if you're considering AJay's, I'd recommend that you keep looking.

Barbara did a beautiful job as our wedding officiate! When we first hired her, she made a point to get to know us so that we had the perfect ceremony made specifically for us. She learned our story, shared her experiences with us, and offered her suggestions on the things that we weren't sure about. We had a good mix of religious and non religious guests attending our wedding, and she made a wonderfully tasteful ceremony to assure nobody felt uncomfortable, while at the same time held on to what we personally wanted from our wedding ceremony. It could not have been done any better. During the rehearsal, she took charge and made sure EVERYONE knew their duties and responsibilities, and she made sure to go through it several times to make sure it stuck in everyone's head for the big day. Barbara is a beautiful speaker, and can add just the right amount of flair to a ceremony for it to be enjoyable for the guests to listen to while still keeping it classy and professional. Barbara speaks from the heart, and offers good sound advice. She is friendly and down to earth and so lovable! We are so happy that we found her. I would also like to mention that she offers a few other services that are wedding related. So if you don't have solid plans for everything yet, DEFINITELY check with her and see if she can help in other aspects of your wedding as well. Her husband was our backup sound guy, and also provided the microphone and speakers for Barbara. I cannot recommend Barbara enough, she did an outstanding job for our wedding, and we are still getting compliments about how beautiful and touching our ceremony was. I recommend her to you without any reservations.

Our big day was July 21 2018 and chad made our ceremony amazing! This man followed our theme (Star Wars) and he really made it great! From using Star Wars lines and references to brining his lightsaber and welcoming me to the dark side! Chad really made our day special and everyone LOVED it! I received many compliments on the ceremony and how it was done. Chad was very responsive before the wedding and very helpful. He also travels from Michigan so him coming to do our wedding in Green Bay is great! Price is very easy to work with. Thank you chad for everything you really made our day amazing!

Bro Paul did a WONDERFUL job officiating our wedding! He did a great job building our ceremony around us and our life! And he incorporated our 3 daughters into the ceremony. We are very happy with the decision to use him for our ceremony instead of going to the courthouse as originally planned.
