How much do you pay for a String Quartet during the Ceremony?
I really want to have a string quartet, but don't really know how much I should pay one. I have friends who are willing to do it, which is more meaningful to me, but I still want to pay them. Maybe not as much as strangers, but still for their services. I would be asking them to be available for pre-ceremony music for about 15 minutes, then the processional, one hymn, and the recessional. This would be a total of one hour of their time. What do you think would be a reasonable payment?
