Winter wedding dates can be a problem if the New England weather decides to get nasty and that’s just what happened on New Year’s Eve when a nasty coastal storm dumped nearly a foot of snow on Plymouth.
When Intermezzo signs a contract to play for a wedding, we are agreeing to show up no matter what’s happening outside. As soon as I heard we were having a snow storm, I decided that our string trio should leave almost two hours earlier than originally planned. Even with the extra time, road conditions were so poor that we arrived a little late. Fortunately, most of the guests were late as well and the bride and groom were even later!
If you’re planning a winter wedding you should be sure to ask your musicians what their plans are in case of bad weather. Do this BEFORE signing a contract! If you plan for the worst, you won’t be worried or surprised.
Happy wedding music planning!
