Making your wedding day reflect your own personal style! Wedding tips from Music Express!

The venue you choose, the food, the flowers, your centerpieces, etc. all say something about who you are and your tastes. When it comes to choosing your music this should be a reflection of you and your new spouse as well.

When it comes to the music, it should also be a reflection of the two of you. Keep in mind however that you will be having guests of many different age ranges. You want to have some current music, oldies, and popular dance hits as well.

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!

Wedding Tips – The big three to look for when hiring a wedding dj!

The most important factor when hiring a wedding dj is to look for someone that has experience. Now we are not talking about any type of dj experience; we are talking about specific wedding experience with satisfied brides. This is extremely important! How do you know if they have satisfied bride? Take a look at their website for positive testimonials. Also, you can always ask for some references from past brides and grooms. We have served well over a thousand satisfied brides over the years.

The second most important factor is the ability of the dj to act as a master of ceremonies. This includes much more than just making announcements. The wedding dj also has to be able to keep all the event of the wedding on track, and work with other vendors such as the photographer and the caterer so that everything is right on cue.

The third item in the big three is the ability of the dj to get your guests on the dance floor. This is accomplished by picking out the right music at the right time, and also by encouraging your guests to dance utilizing the microphone. This needs to be done in a classy fashion.

This information will surely help you pick the right wedding dj! Happy wedding planning!
