Another band horror story…

Writers Note: After recieving this email last night, I am inclined to add another entry to band disasters. Though this is unlikely to happen to you, it highlights the need for good communication.

“On the day of the wedding, I asked my wedding band to make mention of my grandmother who had recently passed away. I told them to say something along the lines of, “We would like to dedicate this song to Julie’s grandmother in her memory.” I then asked them to play ‘I will remember you’. Instead, they mis-heard me and called my grandmother up to the stage. As everyone sat there in shocked silence, they went on, shouting ‘Grandma, Grandma, where are you? We have a song for you.’ It was totally awful.”

There really isn’t much more to say about this [refer to yesterday’s post] except that it highlights that the more planning you can get done in advance, the better off you are going to be. Try and leave as few things as possible to the ‘day of the wedding’. For one thing, time passes really quickly on that day and for another, it just opens you up to communication errors like this one. Awful. This story made us feel really badly.

The Band chimed in during the speeches! Looking back, I was way too selfish planning our wedding.
