Every weekend, all year long, we have the pleasure of providing DJs, photo booths, games, and entertainment for weddings around the Austin and central Texas area. Our goal is to carry out the vision of each couple we work with. Our couples will pick the music for the evening. Some couples will be very specific and pick songs for every minute of the evening; other couples will simply give us their key moment songs and general genre requests, and let our pros select the music. Whichever route they choose, we will execute their vision!
When it comes to weddings, guests tend to remember the food, the music, and the key moments of the evening. They'll remember the music for the ceremony, such as the bridal procession and couple recession song. They'll also remember the other key moments, such as the wedding party entrance, the first dance, bouquet and garter toss, and the exit. Of course they'll also remember dancing and having a great time at your wedding! For all of the key moments, (and dancing all night) the DJ or band facilitates these by acting as the MC and playing the selected songs for each moment. So if you didn't already know, music and your DJ/MC are a very important part of you and your guests' overall experience at your wedding.
Simply put, your guests will remember having a great time at your wedding! Whether it's with playing lawn or giant games during the cocktail hour, or taking pictures at the photo booth, or simply dancing until they're feet can't take it anymore, they'll look back at your wedding and remember the key moments and the fun they had! Although every wedding we do is customized to each couple's unique taste in music, we've noticed a trend, over the year, when it comes to the key moment songs.
