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 – 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!
