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!

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!

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.
