It's probably a little bit of both in this situation. This forum is a great place to VENT to people who understand - I can talk to my friends and they just kind turn their gheads sideways with a stunned look! LOL
I booked an outdoor wedding in Sept. Got to their house to fill out the reception planner and halfway through they asked "would it be any trouble to set up one mic and a couple small speakers for the wedding ceremony?" I figured, no big deal since I have a small powered mixer and a couple of small 10" speakers I could take along and quickly set up for their ceremony. Good business? Yah, probably.
I get an email today from the bride who is now asking if I can just play a couple of songs during their ceremony since I'll already have my gear set up for them to use the mic for the ceremony. NOW I'm starting to feel like I'm getting taken advantage of! I'm afraid next I'll be asked to perform the ceremony!!!
Anyone ever come accross this....what did you do? I already replied back and said I would do it. I think the little extras go a long way in maintaining that go-the-extra-mile reputation.....BUT, I don't want to get the take-advantage-of-them reputation either. A fine line to walk for sure.
