    We have a singer playing at our wedding reception - he is doing a set during the afternoon arrival drinks, and then another couple of sets at the evening disco.

    The contract says we need to provide him with drinks and a meal so he's chosen a main course from our 3 course wedding breakfast menu.

    As he's only having a main course (our choice to save on costs) would it be awkward to seat him with our guests when they'll be having a starter and main too? or would it be more awkward to have him sitting on his own in a different room?

    Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you

    A photographer I spoke to did a wedding where she was given a main course meal, but was sat with the guests who were having a 3 course meal, she said it was a bit awkward, especially when other guests didn’t realise who she was and kept asking why she was only having one course.
    We are providing our photographer with a main course meal but she will be sitting in a bar area- her choice, as she will work on downloading photos etc, your situation is a bit different as I’m not sure whether a singer would have anything else to do? I would suggest you just ask him what his preference is in where he sits , if it’s in his contract to provide a meal he has probably had other couples ask him this a lot :)

    I suggest that you ask the singer on their preference. Normally, they understand and will happily sit on their own in the bar - they don't want to intrude on your big day, only to help make it shine.

    Tbh they normally sit away from guests and are more than happy to do so , in the bar for example

    We asked our venue about this but it is for our photographer as someone else's is and they said they will give them one course and they sit in the bar area as they will be editing pics

    Me and my future husband are planning wedding in USA, New York, where all his family lives, and he advised me to contact an agency which provides high class skilled DJ's for personal parties and weddings ( I think I'm gonna go for it because it's a great opportunity to make our wedding unforgettable. I'm still thinking about hen and stag though because it happens sooner.
