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.
Today we went to a bridal fair at Wolf Lakes! Wolf Lakes is a gorgeous venue with a man made lake where you can take boat rides on your wedding day. The grounds are well kept, the building are wonderful, and the food is amazing. This is definitely one of the best venues in the Fresno/Clovis/Sanger area. You should put this on your list of places to explore when you plan your wedding. We are on the approved vendor list for djs; you have to hire someone on the list at this venue.
This is a great question that most brides will ask me before their wedding takes place. A lot of couples will be quick to say that they probably do not need music before the ceremony.
This is probably not the best choice. When your guests arrive to your ceremony they are looking for a signal that says the ceremony is about to begin. If you have background music while your guests arrive then that lets them know that the ceremony will be starting shortly.
If there is no music, then you will probably have to get your guests rounded up before the wedding starts so that you can get them to sit down. With the music playing, this is their cue to go ahead and sit down because the ceremony will be beginning shortly.
Of course as most of us already know, most weddings do not start on time! However, if you pick some great pre-ceremony music then your guests will be happy sitting and waiting for the bridal party, and of course for the bride to arrive and go down the aisle!
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!
