Entertainment

Music sets the tone for your ceremony and reception. The master of ceremonies you choose and the music you provide will be the key to the pleasure your guests will have as they celebrate your joyous day with you.

For your ceremony you have the choice of guitarists, harpists, violinists, trios or quartets. For a smaller budget, you may want to consider an experienced DJ who will give you the sound and leadership you are looking for. Keeping in mind that you can use a DJ for both the ceremony and the reception, he will work closely with you in planning the order of events and in choosing your music. If your budget allows, another option would be a 3-10 piece variety or specialized band for the reception.

Wedding entertainment is highly personalized. One thing you want to remember is to be sure you start to plan early. In most cases, you will have the opportunity to hear live bands or a DJ before you make a decision.

Your day of commitment and celebration with family and friends will long be remembered. The careful planning of every detail will result in an occasion you will remember for a lifetime.

Reception Music...

A disc jockey service is a popular alternative to live music. It can allow you more versatility in the music that is played. It can range from big band, rock, country and western, to ethnic music such as the hora or the polka. The disc jockey who manages the show can provide the professional sound systems and special lighting effects.

Before you hire the entertainer, be sure to ask for references and ask to listen to a performance. You should select the entertainment as soon as you know the date as the better disc jockeys book up to a year in advance.

For the protection of both parties, you should ap.db a written contractual agreement. It should be drawn up immediately upon making your decision. A professional disc jockey can help with all the special music (first dance, etc.,) and make your wedding a very special and memorable event!
