As a DJ watching chaos unfold on a wedding day, I strongly recommend that every couple planning their big day, hire a day-of-wedding coordinator. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, a day-of-wedding coordinator will help alleviate some of the stress for the soon to be newlyweds. Every penny spent on this service is worth the peace of mind.
The cocktail hour was established for several reasons. The main reason is to keep the guests occupied and entertained while the bride, groom, wedding party, and family members are taking pictures. The cocktail hour also serves as a time to get the guests organized for the reception. Generally the cocktail hour is located in the main ballroom, foyer, or patio. Upbeat background music is played for the guests as they mingle, snack on appetizers (hot & cold) and refresh themselves at the hosted bar.
grand entrance & dinner
The grand entrance takes place through a designated door for the bride and groom to walk through as they are announced and introduced as husband and wife. The DJ will formally introduce wedding party members into the reception from the grand entrance. Wedding party members include - parents of the newlyweds, grandparents, flower girl(s), ring bearer(s), ushers, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and last but not least, the bride and groom.
While your guests may have had an opportunity to graze appetizers while drinking cocktails during the cocktail hour, the bride & groom and their entire wedding party may not have eaten for several hours. Providing a schedule to your entertainer, you can direct the venue to begin serving dinner to the reception guests and bridal party. Venues take great pride in their food preparation and friendly service during receptions. Keep in mind a reception dinner lasts about 60 minutes. As newlyweds, take your time eating and socializing. You are the primary focus for friends and family approaching you for pictures, hugs and a lot of congratulations. To preserve energy to handle the next 4-5 hours of mingling, eat!!
speeches & cake
After dinner is over, the DJ will announce the beginning of wedding toasts. Grab those drinks! The best man and maid/matron of honor will each toast the bride and groom. Parents of the bride and groom will propose a toast for their children wishing them the best as "one". Now comes your remaining bridal party. Let them get creative with their speeches; allow them to speak from the heart the memories they hold close and that bring smiles to their faces as they inform the wedding guests about you.
Cutting the wedding cake together is a predominant wedding ritual. This ritual symbolizes a couple as "unified". Traditionally, the groom feeds the bride first, and then the bride feeds the groom. They can also feed one another simultaneously. A champagne toast can also be included before or after the cutting and feeding of the cake. (Cake face smashing anyone?)
Now to dance together for the first time as husband and wife. The first “dance” is a symbol of your new life together. First dances give the parents of the bride and groom a chance to dance with the newlyweds.
Traditionally two dances take place with the parents; the father and daughter dance, followed by the mother and son dance. It is best to choose a song that reflects the intimacy of your relationship to that parent.
If your family consists of step parents as well as biological parents, you may want to include all parents. The entertainer can ask the biological father of the bride to join the bride on the dance floor and half way through have the stepfather step in to share the dance.
The purpose of open dancing is to allow the guests to celebrate the newlyweds. A key piece of advice we as DJs ca offer newlyweds, create a successful dance music playlist for the guests to jam out to with you on the dance floor.
Remember that you are the nucleus of the party. Wherever you are is where your guests will be. Our DJs give you the option to pick as many songs as you desire for your dance party. If unable to decide, we can select songs we know as professionals will work.
Please have a must play list and also a do not play list.
The Shoe Game is slapstick entertainment. The couple sits back to back in front of all their guests, each removing their shoes and swapping one for the other. The MC/DJ will ask the couple a series of questions about themselves and their relationship (ranging from the sweet and fairly straightforward “Who said ‘I love you’ first?” to the controversial “Who is the better driver?”). The couple answers by holding up the corresponding shoe, not being able to see what the other person has said. This game usually has a lot of laughter coming from the wedding guests.
