Simple tricks to a successful wedding reception

DSC01049Great ideas on how to have a rocking wedding reception where you’re guests dance all night long.

These are very simple, but proving to be very effective.

  1. Of course you want your wedding march, recessional, and first dance, Father Daughter… etc.

A couple of songs from the bride and groom, but you must think of your guests and what they like, it is like you are giving them a gift of joy. We advise to put on your invites to R.S.V.P with a song they like to dance to, if they do not dance ask to list a song they would like to hear. Your guests will appreciate this very much.

  1. If you are a happy bride, all is happy. If you are not happy the guests will feel the tension and cannot have a good time. I see this all the time. So please rest up a month before the wedding.

  1. Take a lot of b-12, eat right, exercise, and get plenty of sleep.
  2. Smile all the time. You’re guests love you and want you to be happy
  3. Have someone in charge for any mishaps.
  4. Many weddings they cut the cake after the toast, the guest have already been sitting a long time from your introduction, all traditional dances and then the toast… they already are thinking of leaving after the cake cutting. To prevent this our DJ/MC keeps them entertained by getting the guest revved up for a great party while our photographers takes photos of groups of friends, family, traditional family generation shots from grandmother, mother and daughter.
  5. We recommend that you hold off the cake cutting till later, for example do the garter toss, bouquet toss then the cake cutting then back to the party… they won’t want to leave.
  6. Another time to cut the cake is right after your first dance. The staff at the venue will love you for this.
  7. Plan a grand exit with sparklers or lots of bubbles, Have someone in charge of lining guests in two rows with sparklers or bubbles.

Why You Should Budget More and Get A Great Wedding DJ

Let’s start by asking yourself how long you expect the following items to entertain your guests:
Your cake
Your flowers
Your centerpieces
Your decorations
Your veggie tray
Your dinner
Your chair covers
As you can see although these items are all important, none of them are going to entertain your guests for very long.
Most brides wait until the end of their budget to hire their DJ without consideration of the importance that he/she has to the success of your wedding celebration.
Your wedding DJ is actually about 85% responsible for the success of your wedding celebration! Say that out loud to yourself a couple of times before you hire your DJ. If you hire the wrong DJ you will be managing your DJ instead of relaxing and enjoying yourselves with your friends and family!
Your wedding DJ is not supposed to be just someone that shows up and pushes the play button and music comes on! You can hire one like that if you want to, but don’t be surprised if your wedding shows up on Youtube as one of those disaster weddings that you probably heard about.
Your DJ is the one who is supposed to run your wedding reception starting as soon as your ceremony is over until the end of your last dance. He/she is your “day of” coordinator that is the key person between the venue staff and your wedding photographer. He/she is the one that is supposed to be there for you and keep everything rolling on the timeline that you set up. He/she is there for the total entertainment package, which goes far beyond just playing music. Here’s a frightening though for you… the DJ you hire will be alone with your guests for about 45 minutes until you arrive. They will be there representing YOU!
