This week we'd like to ask you a two-part question:
1. If you're hosting a wedding, what's the most important element of the
2. And if you're a wedding guest, what impacts you the most?
The answer is simple: The music! Music can make or break the party and
finding the best music within your budget should be a top priority.
A bride-to-be once emailed AAWP and said:
"Our families haven't seen each other in ages, so we see our wedding as
a chance to reunite ourselves and our families. Our reception is going
to be like a big family reunion, and we're going to play chamber music
so that people can sit and chat and get to know each other again!"
Now let's imagine that you're one of the wedding guests who is about to
sit at a table for four hours trying to make small-talk with people you
don't know-while surrounded by violins. How long do you think you'll stay
before you make an excuse to leave?
So here's the advice we gave to our bride-to-be:
A wedding reception is a celebration, not a coffee klatch or a family
reunion. Weddings are a time to have fun and celebrate! Music and dancing
have always been an integral part of the festivities and today, there's
no excuse NOT to have wonderful music. DJs are affordable and a good DJ
can really make a party hop!
Ask your recently married friends and relatives for referrals for good
entertainment because weddings are not a time "to let your fingers do
the walking." When you find a DJ or band, etc. you like, ask for references
and check them out-because music makes or breaks the party-or should we
say the reception.
