It turns out that people who provide services for weddings actually want to get paid for their work.
A common problem for people working in the wedding industry is people trying to get services for free. Weddings are expensive and many couples would love not having to pay for a photographer. While it seems common for people to offer exposure in return for working the wedding, a prospective groom apparently came up with a new tactic.
A wedding musician recently shared a story to Reddits forums about a man trying to hire him for an upcoming wedding. Posting under the name Megabollockchops, the musician shared screenshots of the text conversation.
The prospective groom begins by explaining that times are difficult due to the pandemic and then asks if the performing artist will do the wedding “as a favor.”

“If you feel like coming to perform (the song at the wedding,” said the prospective groom, “I want to tell you about you, a little grub and a few beers, and I put a good word with bridesmaids …”
The musician replied: “It’s a very friendly offer, but unfortunately the pandemic has also affected me and I also have to make money. Hope your day is great.”
Incredibly, the conversation did not end there.
The future groom replied, “I’m sorry, but I can not really say no to an answer. I reckon she will divorce me if I do not get you.”

Apparently, however, the singer could still say no to answers and is unlikely to perform at this wedding.
Not surprisingly, commentators could not believe the aroma of the upcoming groom.
“I dig it when people use the phrase ‘can’t say no to an answer’, in a situation where it really is not up to them,” wrote one user.

Another user added: “If you can not take ‘no’ for an answer, it looks like you’ll just have to pay the ‘yes’ price, don’t you?”
“I wonder what the upcoming bride would think of her fiancé trying to pimp her friends into paying for a musician,” reads another comment.
