Wedding & Event Planning Tips
Relax, we're here to help!
Events go from good to great when you start to personalize the details. From choosing a wedding processional song that speaks to your love rather than keeping it traditional to adding a photo booth to your event where you can make memories that you will keep forever, these little decisions will make all the difference.
If you’re planning on hosting a holiday party this season, or a wedding, quinceanera, party or event, here are a few great ways you can personalize your event!
Choose the Right Music
Begin by choosing music that you and your guests will enjoy. For holiday parties, try to incorporate a mix of classic holiday tunes with a variety of more modern hits. For weddings, parties and events, definitely add all of your favorite genres, and be sure to consider music that your guests may want to hear, too. If you're not sure, simply ask your guests to requests music.
Many couples will set up a wedding website, and guests can often visit the website and give song suggestions for the wedding. Simply ask your guest, what 2 songs will make you get up and dance? Collect the responses and be sure to filter through them, since you'll have the ultimate say in what your DJ plays at your wedding or event. Be sure to give your DJ a list of all the suggested songs ahead of time so that they know what to play, as well as the kind of vibe you’re trying to set.
