Dwight Phetteplace: Wedding Music Prices


Pre-ceremony and Ceremony $450

Includes beautiful instrumental guitar as guests are seated,  your processional(s),  your recessional,  perhaps even your special song played or sung during the ceremony.

This includes my travel , set-up and sound check, and, most importantly, the time we spend by phone or meeting to plan your music...we'll get it perfect.

 This also includes providing a microphone through my PA for your officiant, if desired.

When those inevitable little wedding day complications arise, I'll handle them so that you and your family won't have to.



Cocktail Hour: Add $125 - (Cocktail Hour only $275)

 Relaxed, romantic vocals and/or instrumentals to help transition the mood from ceremony to celebration.


Dinner /Reception: Dinner add $350, Dancing to Your Playlist add $300

 Many couples choose to have me provide live music for part of the dinner/reception followed by their own iPod or CD mix through my sound system for dancing. This is an economical, low key alternative to a DJ.

I will  provide a mic for toasts, handle introductions and first dances, etc, thus providing a relaxed, more personalized, reception experience, while saving the cost of a separate DJ.

Usually during dinner, I perform a relaxing mix of folk, blues. oldies, and traditional music: Paul Simon, James Taylor, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Eagles, Elvis, Johnny Cash, etc . (check both the "wedding music "list and the "non-wedding gigs" link to get an idea).

I am always well-received by guests, especially by parents, grandparents, aunt/uncles . 

Then we switch over to your ipod playlist with dance music,  top 40,  country,  big band...whatever you choose... to give everyone what they want and get folks dancing with your own mix  It's the best of both worlds !



Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner Package: $350 - Rehearsal only $150

I will attend your rehearsal so that we get all the cues and other details ironed out, and provide live musical background for your rehearsal dinner ( up to 2 hours).

I always enjoy this opportunity to meet everyone beforehand.


These are all inclusive prices, which include travel, set-up, and planning/consultation time. - ( Because I don't charge by the hour, there's no need to worry about starting late or running overtime.)

20% discount for Weekday Weddings or Off-Season ( Nov - March)

 (Special circumstances, such as providing guitar accompaniment for your singer, or factors such as exceptionally long or short travel distance or a mid-week date,  could raise or lower these slightly. Contact me for special situations. )
