The bouquet toss! When should this happen? Wedding tips!

Brides will frequently ask me this question: when is the best time to have the bouquet toss?

The answer to this question is simple. You should have the bouquet toss somewhere in between 30 to 45 minutes after dancing has been opened up for everyone. This means the toast has already happened, the cutting of the cake is done, the first dance has been completed, the father daughter dance is over, the mother son dance is done…and then 30 to 45 minutes later. You don’t want to wait too long because you want to make sure all your single friends have a chance to catch the bouquet! Use my tips to help yourself have a great wedding!

The Tachi Palace in Lemoore is a beautiful venue. It has gorgeous ballrooms for your wedding and reception. The decor is elegant, and the food is fabulous! The Adams had their wedding and reception with Music Express wedding djs. Everyone had a great time dancing! The wedding was flawless, and the bride and groom were very happy! They were a very nice couple to work with on their wedding.

Fun reception songs! Bride and groom entrance songs!

What song should we have ourselves introduced to at our reception? Almost every bride and groom will ask this question. You song that you pick should say something about you and your fiance. Your song should also say that you are ready to have fun!

Here is a sample of some popular songs you might choose:

Introducing your parents – wedding reception tips

When is the most appropriate time to introduce the bride and groom’s parents? In my opinion, the best time to do this is in the middle of dinner long before the toast. This gives your parents the attention they deserve before everyone gets involved in all the other events that will take place during the reception. The announcement of your parents is traditional.

When should you cut the wedding cake?

This is a question that brides ask me all the time (so do their mothers)! This is really up to the bride and groom.

However, the current trend is to cut the cake about 10 to 15 minutes after the toast. This works out great because then the cutting of the cake is an extension of dinner, and this is customary with weddingsThe cuttingof the cake that the bride and groom are the first to eat a piece of cake!

It is also the trend to pick out a song for the cutting of the cake. We have suggestions on our Music Express facebook page.

In the past, a couple of decades ago the cutting of the cake would occur about 30-45 minutes after dinner and the first dance.

It is really your decision how you would like to handle this.

Beautiful Monterey Wedding on February 20, 2013

Last night we performed at a beautiful Monterey Wedding! The ceremony was on the golfcourse of the Blackhore Bayonet Golf Course which is on the CSU Monterey Bay campus. The view during the ceremony was breathtaking. The ocean was brilliantly blue with the sun beginning to set as the bridal party, and then the bride walked down the golf course which is populated with Cypress trees and a lush green lawn.

Following the ceremony we all had a gourmet dinner in the clubhouse with the bridal party being announced, the best man and the maid of honor giving a toast, followed by all the customary events.

The rest of the night was spent dancing, and everyone had a great time! The bridal party was especially energetic!
