Groom Offers to Pay Wedding Singer . . . In Bridesmaids???

A wedding singer from the U.K. just posted a screenshot on Facebook of some text messages he got from a groom who was trying to book him for his wedding. The groom said he couldn’t pay in money, but if the guy performed, quote, “I’ll put in a good word with the bridesmaids. I’m sure lockdowns got them like wild animals.”  The wedding singer turned him down. You have to admit, this is definitely a “creative” way to try to save some budget on your wedding. And by “creative,” I mean, “your future wife is going to kill you when she finds out about this.”
