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!

The first dance – after bridal party introductions or after cutting of the cake?

Should we have the first dance after the bridal party introductions or after the cutting of the cake? This is one of those questions that brides ask while they are planning their wedding.

While it is entirely proper to do it either way, there are pros and cons to having your first dance after the bridal party introductions. The pros being that your guests are already focused on you after the bridal party introduction, and this is a dramatic time to have your first dance while all your guests are still present. The cons being that this is one of the highlights of the reception, and then you are going to stop all the excitement to sit down and  have dinner. Many guests will think that they have already seen you dance so they may leave at the end of dinner.

When you save the first dance until after dinner, this is the time to engage your guests in your reception celebration. The first dance will be followed usually by the father/daughter dance, the mother/dance, and then an all dance number which kicks off the dancing for the evening!

Remember it is your choice and the bride should always have things in the manner she would like them on her wedding day!

First Dance

The Hursts have a great wedding! Dance to “In the Mood”

We performed for the Hursts at their wedding reception. They had us take care of their ceremony and reception. Some of their children (grown up) were in the wedding. Everyone had a great time, and they all dance for hours to music ranging from jazz, big band, hip hop, top 40, rock and roll, etc.

They chose our silver package and were thrilled with our service!

 

 

 

 

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!
