He Wants a Band -- You Want a DJ. How to Make Compromises Work For Your Wedding Day.
When planning your wedding music, the best approach is to share your personal music selections while taking a sensitive approach to your wedding guests. This is even more important when the guests represent a diverse age range that includes many generations.
Think about the type of music genre that best reflects your personalities, and your guests. The final selections help to create the ideal ambiance for both of you and your guests.
By way of introduction, Ultimate Caterer in Marlboro, NJ not only specializes in weddings, but other major events that include birthday parties and even bar and bat mitzvahs.
Helping couples with wedding music selections is only one of the many services that we offer. We also walk our wedding couples through every aspect of their planning and provide them with details about our trusted partnerships that include locations, tent companies, flooring companies, DJs, and photographers.
If you intend to hold the wedding ceremony reception at the catering facility, then you and your groom will need to review and select the music for the wedding. If your ceremony involves more than one faith, you should carefully review the music traditions and customs of each faith.
If both of you are still at odds over the direction to take for your wedding music, it's not worth drawing a line in the sand over this decision. One simple solution we recommend is to use a combination that includes a band and DJ for your dance sets. This also gives the band opportunities to take breaks while maintaining the atmosphere and excitement.
Bear in mind that the band is entitled to take breaks, and without a DJ they may provide some type of recorded music. That being said, a DJ is much more fun.
The following check list is a great guide for planning purposes:
* Prelude music is the music that sets a mood prior to the wedding ceremony as your guests arrive
* The all important bride and groom entrance song (We strongly recommend that you make this a joint decision).
* Cocktail hour and dinner provide excellent opportunities for soft ballads mood music, and perhaps even a cool jazz ensemble.
Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event that should be filled with sweet memories. We're here to help you make that happen.
