Wedding Tips – Men are more involved in wedding planning more than ever! Ask you man what he wants!

According to an article written in the Huffinton Post this last November of 2012, men are more involved in wedding planning than ever before. In fact, most men want the wedding more than the bride according to the article.  It goes on to say that men would forgo saving for a house to have a great wedding!

This is also becoming more prevalent because mor and more women have high powered jobs and the men in some cases have more time to plan the wedding.

Wedding Tips – Your name in lights! – Gobo light!

This question comes up all the time: What is a gobo light?

A gobo light is a special light that allows me to project your name or logo onto the wall or dance floor and put it in lights.

This is a great method to commemorate a wedding or other special occasion.

You should really consider this when you are getting married. This is something that really adds to the personalization of your wedding day.

Wedding Tips – When should you book your dj? 6 months, 1 year, a year and a half ahead of time?

This is a really good questions that I get asked all the time. People will ask me when do you need to know that I want to hire you for my wedding?  The best answer I can give you is this: the sooner the better. If you want a really good dj, then you should be booking them after you pick your venue. They should be right up there with the photographer and the caterer. Of course, there are many djs you can pick up at the last minute. Let’s remember though we are not a commodity like sugar. All sugar is relatively the same so price is the determining factor.

I would rather compare us to a fine dinner. You are willing to pay more for a fine dinner because you know you are going to savor and enjoy it. It should be the same with a great wedding dj. This should be someone who’s work you will enjoy and you will be able to look back on with fond memories!

Really popular days are already being booked 1.5 years out, other dates a year, and some six months ahead of time.

Wedding Tips – Ceremony and Reception? – or Reception only? – Why is this important to know?

Most of the weddings that I am involved with I play music for the ceremony, and we also play music for the reception as well. It is important to know because if I am doing both, then sometimes I have to bring two sound systems. Also, this gives me an idea of about how long you will need our services. Many times the bride and groom are not really sure. I can provide you with sample timelines that will give you a great idea of how things will flow at your wedding.

This information also helps me to be able to give the bride or groom more information about how your wedding will flow.

 

 

 

Make your wedding great! Pick out the right music for your reception!

Brides and grooms always have questions about which songs are the right ones to pick out for their wedding. You should pick out songs that you really want to have at your reception. Songs that you cannot live without. You also need to plan for your entrance, cake cutting, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, bouquet toss, and garter toss. Beyond that you should pick out types of mus that you want to have played at your reception and communicate this to your dj. We have forms that will help your do this, we provide consultation to you, and we also have lists of the top songs for weddings on our facebook page!

This is how you make your wedding reception successful and great!

Make your reception perfect – dinner muisc – wedding tips!

How do your make your reception perfect? You have to hire a dj that pays attention to the details, and you must give him/her the essential details that they need to make your day great. One of the most overlooked aspects of the wedding reception is the dinner music. While the bride and groom are having their pictures taken after the ceremony, the guests are gathering inside the reception venue to mingle and listen to dinner music.

The bride and groom arrive, they are announced in a grand fashion, and the dinner music continues. This music should not be too loud, but should add to the atmosphere of the day. Some of the popular choices for dinner music include in order:

  1. Classical Music
  2. Love songs
  3. Jazz music
  4. Big Band
  5. Custom choices

So, make sure you pay attention to all the details of your wedding. The entertainer, dj you hire should be very interested in what you want!
