Do musicians charge by the hour?

I am thinking of booking a singer to sing our entrance song only and wondering musicians charge by the hour?I already have a pianist and violinist and feel I would like it if a musician would also play the song.I am based in Adelaide for a winter wedding.

Hi Tendai,

Yes usually musicians charge by the hour.  Sometimes singers will charge per number of songs though, so it's worth enquiring with them and asking!  We are an instrumental group in Perth, and often recommend singers to perform with us.  Many of them will happily just do one song for a wedding.

Good luck!  Hope your wedding goes well!

What's the best way to choose my wedding music?

I'm not sure how to go about choosing my wedding music. Do you have any advice for curating the soundtrack?

Les Trois Amies

Hi Lucy, I definitely think trust your instincts to begin with. If you have a favourite song or songs, try to incorporate them first, obviously ensuring your partner loves these too. The three important music sections of your ceremony are the entrance (processional), signing of the registry and the recessional (exit/end of ceremony). This is where your favourite songs could come in. For the entrance, something that is not too fast if ideal, so you don't have to rush in! Sometimes couples choose 2 songs for their entrance: 1 for the bridesmaids/bridal party and 1 for the bride. As far as live music goes, we find that interrupts the flow of the entrance a bit, but it is your choice of course. You can have just about anything for the signing of the registry - fast or slow or medium. It's often good to have a back up piece for the signing in case it goes for a while. For the exit, we always recommend a more upbeat, happy, vibrant song that you both love.

You can visit our website to see our recommendations and complete playlist for ceremonies and weddings, if you would like more ideas and inspiration.

Choosing the music for the reception can take a while; you could make notes during the lead up to the wedding of songs you love to help create a list. Or you may prefer to select your music all in the one go - meeting with your DJ or live band. We find that most of our clients need to go away and think about their playlist, and discuss with their partner at length. Obviously, spending some time listening to music on YouTube etc or going to see live bands you are potentially booking is extremely helpful. It is always useful to think of music that you definitely DON'T want played, and communicate that to your entertainment suppliers.

I hope that helps a little!! Rebecca, Les Trois Amies
