A bride to be is a superwoman. With all the planning that has to get done; shopping, invites, etc., the job can be a little overwhelming. But do not fear! We have the top questions every bride should ask during her process, whether it be hiring the DJ or booking the venue. These questions will make planning feel like a breeze.


1. How long have you been in business? This classic question can help you determine if a business is worth hiring. With the help of the internet, it’s easier than ever to see business reviews to ensure a secure and reliable booking process.


2. Do you have a portfolio? Whether you are hiring a cake decorator or booking a reception venue, asking for a portfolio or images of recent work can help guarantee you get exactly what you envisioned for your big day!


3. Is there liability insurance? In case something happens, make sure the venue you are celebrating at has a good policy. We can’t predict if any mishaps will happen, however, it’s always great to be covered on all bases.


4. What’s your cancellation policy? Again, we can’t predict what will happen before the big day, however, if you need to cancel a reservation or change the date, make sure the venue you are booking has an easy policy. This goes for all company hires for the big day.

Summer Wedding Planning

wedding


Setting a date is a big step when planning your wedding. The days are hot and the evenings are cool. It’s the perfect beach weather and, of course, has those romantic sunsets. Summer is a popular time of year to say your big “I Dos”. Stay ahead of the game with these helpful tips and plan your perfect summer wedding.


1. Remember to book your venue early! Summer weddings are all the rage and the competition is fierce. Don’t be left in the dust because you waited to long to choose your dream venue. Also, don’t forget about your guests. Summer is filled with other activities and commitments. Give your guests and wedding party time to plan and prepare for your special day.


2. Wedding Dress Decisions. If your wedding is outside, remember to choose a dress that is light and airy, so you aren’t sweeting bullets during the entire wedding.


3. Stay Hydrated. Keep cool and refreshed during your entire ceremony with delicious beverages. Infused water is a great way to spice up your water. Even light refreshments, such as agua fresca or coconut water, will surely keep you and your guests hydrated all day.


4. Guest Accommodations. Remember to keep you happy. Although an outdoor setting is beautiful, not all your guests will agree that sitting outside in the beating hot sun is fun. Consider these few things: host your ceremony outdoors and reception inside or provide canopies over your outdoor seating to give your guests some much needed shade.


A Summer wedding can be a beautiful and romantic affair. Be prepared when booking your perfect venue and avoid wasting time and money.

Don’t Stop the Music! : Wedding Music Tips and Tricks

1356906493ppyxc-1


Your guests look forward to shakin’ it on the dance floor. But nothing ruins a good time like an unprepared DJ set. Want to avoid those awkward gaps of bad music during your wedding reception? We have some helpful tips for you and your DJ to keep the party bumping all night long!


Create a request station.
During the reception, allow your guests to request their favorite songs without bombarding the DJ. Set up a “creative station” where your guests can jot down their favorite tunes (on a separate table or perhaps a cute jar next to the DJ booth).


Mix it up!
In order to ensure a fun night on the dance floor for everyone, create a list with your DJ that combines the oldies and today’s hits. But remember, if you have kids at your wedding keep it PG. All this considered, you and your guests will be dancing the night away!


Customize your entrance song.
After the big “I Dos,” give your bridesmaids and groomsmen a special song for their entrance into the reception hall. This will add a personal touch for your whole wedding party. Don’t forget about you and your boo too! Give yourselves an epic song to introduce yourselves as husband and wife. This can even be the intro into your first dance, depending on the order of your evening.


Create the ambience.
During the times your guests are not grooving on the dance floor, make sure to create a special mood throughout the whole reception. Try adding the perfect musical touch to your toasts or during the dinner hours. This is sure to lift the mood and keep your reception light and happy.


Keep your guests, DJ, and yourself happy throughout your wedding reception by providing an epic music playlist. You’re guest won’t be able to keep their happy feet still!


Our professional team can help connect you with the perfect DJ to provide you with the best music line up. Call now for a consultation 800-381-0736!

The Simple Dos and Don’ts for a Successful Graduation Party

file0002022362803


A college graduation is a special day for everyone. From grandparents to friends, this joyous day is time for celebration. We all look forward to hosting a fun and memorable graduation party, so to avoid any party fouls, remember these dos and don’ts during your planning.


Do: Decide your guest list. This can be the toughest decision. We all want to share our special party with everyone we know, but sometimes it can’t be done. Make a decision early on about who you will be inviting to your party. Will it be just family? Just friends? Or a tasteful mix of both? Establish your guest list early on to keep things simple and organized.


Don’t: Stress the Small Stuff. A common mistake all party hosts face is getting caught up in all the little details of the party. From decorations to music, it’s sometimes hard to step back and just enjoy the party. Try to spend time mingling with your guests to create memorable moments.


Do: Provide interactive games. If you are blending two groups together, keep your guests laughing with some unique and fun games. Create a table of guessing games or have your guests write down their relationship to the graduate, like how they meet. This will make it easy for guests to find common ground and mingle.


Don’t: Forget to Say Thank you! After all is done, send your guests a special thank you card telling them how much it meant to have them celebrate your graduation with you.
