Things to Consider When Hiring a Wedding Harpist

April 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 132

Hiring a wedding harpist for matrimonial ceremonies is a key ingredient in making these events more memorable. Harp players are well-adept in providing enchanting melodies which are perfect for weddings. Their music is not overpowering so guests can pay their full attention to the newlyweds.

In selecting a harp player, a bride must consider certain details to be able to make a wise decision. The following are some of the key points to remember when booking a harp player for your wedding:

Price

The price of a wedding harpist depends on a lot of factors such as length of service, location, season, day of the week, etc. It is also determined by the harp players themselves. This is why, it is important to set a ballpark figure beforehand on how much to spend for this service. With this figure, you may now browse listings of harp players catering to your location. Providing them with the details of the event is the first step of the process. After sending them an enquiry message to a harpist agency or individual musicians, expect to receive a reply within a couple of days. It is wise to include as much details as you can in your enquiry to make it easier for the harpist to determine the right price.

Time to Book

If you want to book your preferred harp player, it is essential that you book at least six weeks before the event. However, if you are looking to hire the best, consider booking six months prior to the wedding date. The best performers are usually offered more jobs they could handle so the best way to secure their service is by booking way ahead of time.

Location

If you are keen on hiring a harp, it is essential to ensure that your location is suitable for this service. If you are planning for an outdoor wedding, it is important that the harpist, with her instrument, is protected from direct sunlight. If there is a possibility of precipitation, it is important to protect the instrument from getting wet.

These musicians are accustomed to moving their harps around with some help from hotel staff. If the celebration is to be held in a private location, it is important to ask the harpist if she needs assistance on this when booking. In most cases, guests are gracious to help in moving the harp around. If the harp has to be moved on a narrow and steep staircase, it is recommended to opt to a Celtic harpist who uses a smaller instrument.
