Read this article now, then read it again 3 times after you finish. Think about what is written here and then read it for a final time. That is how much I am trying to educate Brides and Grooms, Grooms and Grooms and Brides and Brides alike on this growing problem.
In this day and age when we need a product (not a service) most of us go to the internet to sites like Amazon.com and look for the best price for a product, read a few reviews on it and then purchase it. We feel good because we filled a void and bought something you most likely wanted or needed. It comes a few days later and you open it up to find out that it wasn't what you thought it was or the "great deal" wasn't so great after-all. You then return it and buy something different, in most cases probably more expensive. You get the new one and are happy with your purchase and spending a bit more for a more popular and reputable product.. THIS IS WHERE THIS STOPS IN THE WEDDING SERVICE INDUSTRY!
Service vs. Product.
Product is something you buy and is a tangible item. Service for your wedding day is a ONE TIME investment. You can't take it back, you can't fire it, you can't change it on your wedding day!
For 29 years in the wedding industry, I have seen many potential clients that are spending 20,000+ on their wedding day, not give as much thought to doing research and just "getting it booked" on price alone.. SERIOUSLY? We all understand budgets and money doesn't grow on trees, but understand that the best price is not necessarily the best service. Do your research, reviews, and meet or have phone conversations with at least 2-3 different service providers. Spend more time planning your reception and doing research and less time on social media. I see this becoming more and more of a problem where clients say they don't have time to plan their own wedding, however are out with their friends partying it up or shopping multiple times a week.
For years I have been a part of thousands of receptions and it PAINS ME to hear these horror stories of vendors that provide very low quality of service and couples are horrified with the end results.
Don't blow 90% of your budget on a venue you probably can't afford: ...Read More
Is a Saturday wedding really better than a Friday? Many would argue this fact through and through. There are an incredible amount of amazing reasons to have your wedding on a Friday vs. a Saturday. Check out these hard to believe answers below.....
Your guest’ schedules:
Guests’ work schedules are often flexible enough to allow them to leave early on a Friday, and who doesn’t like getting out of work early on a Friday?
Following the wedding, guests still have their weekends free, whereas a Saturday wedding eats up most of the day between ceremony and reception.
Out-of-town guests may have an added day to visit or to travel home.
Airfare is less expensive for out-of-town guests mid-week versus on a weekend.
Wedding vendors have greater availability on Fridays
Vendors are more flexible with packages, timing & options on Fridays
Friday weddings often have greater negotiation power with vendors
Planning a rehearsal dinner? Most restaurants are much more accommodating of large group dinners on Thursdays
LESS STRESS…MORE RELAXATION
Friday receptions start later…and so can hair appointments, makeup, & pictures
More time to relax or get in a quick 9 on the local course (girls or guys)
No early morning drives to the airport!
Most honeymoon packages start on Sunday, so the day after the wedding the bride and groom can sleep in, open gifts and visit with out-of-town guests
These are just a few tips on Friday weddings. Most brides that come to me with a dream wedding, but have a smaller budget, can achieve this on a Friday vs. a Saturday.

Part Two: Atmosphere and Entertainment
We have all been to that wedding. The one where the DJ is playing some outdated, drab songs that no one wants to dance to. The décor is lack luster, the atmosphere is dull, and most importantly the dance floor is empty. There is nothing worse, coming from a DJ’s perspective, then looking out over a room and seeing that empty, cross-hatched wooden pattern with no one on it.
Ever wondered how to pack a dance floor at your wedding so you can avoid this catastrophe?
When it comes to choosing entertainment, weather a band or DJ, experience and talent isn’t something to thumb your nose at. This is what truly makes the noticeable difference, especially on the dance floor.
In our series of Selective Secrets, we will take a look at MC/DJ entertainment and how it is vital to trust someone that has the talent and experience to get your guests on the dance floor having fun.
The Reality – What average wedding guests will expect:
- some type of chicken/green beans with almonds in them, and roasted red skin potatoes for dinner
- an average bar with bottom-shelf liquors they cannot pronounce
- traditional wedding cake
- a DJ playing the same music you have heard at the last three weddings you attended
- the clock strikes 10 PM and most guests are on their way out the door
The common denominator in all these factors? Atmosphere. The way you build the evening and how it flows with the quality of entertainment will make or break your reception.
Atmosphere is something that is created and takes planning. It is the order of events, music, and the flow of the event that will change your guests attitudes about your wedding reception. You can have the cheapest food, well drinks, cheap venue with little décor or natural appeal, and still have an unforgettable reception.
Experience, talent, and creativity are the key factors that make your wedding entertainment unique. Having an experienced DJ/entertainer that knows how to read a crowd and build the atmosphere with a creative twist will guarantee the dance floor is never empty.
Now you may be asking, how do I assure I have the right person for my wedding? Fear not – we are here to help:
Step #1 – interview your entertainment in person. Check out their references and what people are saying online. Use resources like WeddingWire and The Knot to find out the kind of experience others ...Read More
