Reception Ideas

So why meet with your dj before your wedding reception you may ask. Surely he or she is just there to play great music? Well this is of course true, but your wedding reception can be so much more if you want it to be. Here are a few ideas:

Why not have some carefully chosen background music playing throughout your wedding breakfast? An unobtrusive sound system can be set up in an inconspicuous place and music of your choice can be played in the background, adding that extra ambience to the occasion.

Planning that special first dance? I can provide specially edited music for the moment. Starting off with a song of your choice, then launching into a choreographed dance to one of your favourite uptempo tracks is a truly memorable moment for all. And hopefully someone will be there to capture it on camera!

Why leave your evening guests out of all the formalities? Why not cut your cake during the evening reception. I will make sure everyone’s cameras are poised to take that special picture.

How about the bouquet toss to that lucky female guest. I can arrange for you to borrow a more sturdy substitute bouquet and keep your own treasured arrangement safe.

There is no point whatsoever in me spending the first two hours of your precious evening celebrations trying to guess the music that will be enjoyed by you and your guests when I can be prepared weeks beforehand. Supply me a list of artists/songs that you would and wouldn’t want played (the more the merrier, I don’t impose a limit to how many tracks you submit). Why not put a request slip in with your guest’s invitation to make that song all the more personal to them. See the Music Inspiration page for a few ideas.

I can even provide blow up instruments and props should you be that way inclined!

And finally, that last goodbye to your guests. Staged as you would like it with no surprises. Leave with a whisper or go out with a bang!

So you see, any dj worth his fee should not just turn up and play music.
