Before you enter…a few words from a Pro who’s played over 1,000 weddings.
Well worth your time.
A. I’ve played wedding receptions that cost $500+/guest, in extravagant locations & venues.
B. I’ve played wedding receptions that cost $0.00/guest, where all the food, bevvies, ice, etc. were prepared & brought in BY the guests, an hour before the newly married couple arrived from their Ceremony & Pictures. In Grange Halls, VFW’s, American Legions, Barns (I mean barns) & tents in the middle of nowhere.
Besides the fact that I work just as hard at either one…
I can assure you that besides it being the happiest day of a couple’s life, to that day, as well as being super important to share that day with their family & friends who get to be there with them,
there’s one other thing both (A) & (B) share:
Once the Cocktail Hour is over. Once I introduce the wedding party, parents, special guests. Once I introduce, ‘for the first time’ the Couple as ‘married’. Once the ‘First Dances’, the special dances re: Father/Daughter & Mother/Son & the Toasts & then Dinner & Cake Cutting is over…
The only thing that the guests will then remember
Is how much fun they had dancing for the last two-three hours of the Reception.
Tuxes versus Suits; Gowns versus Dresses; Heels versus scootin Boots; Chandeliers versus Strung Bulbs; Long Stem Wine Glasses versus Mason Jars; Three Tiered Cakes versus Cupcakes…
None of those things matter once we’re on the home stretch of the Reception.
WHAT REALLY MATTERS?
1. Your favorite relatives or friends who never dance: DO
2. You & your spouse/partner never wish to leave the dance floor.
3. Dance floor is so hot, every 20 minutes I need to throw in a slow dance, to cool down.
4. When I announce the last dance, everyone groans & you both ask that I stay another hour.
Why? Because: No One Wants The Night To End.
Ultimately, that’s my real job as a Wedding DJ. The rest: I make look easy because we are ‘prepared’.
