How to Get Special Song Requests for Your Reception

Filed under: Receptions — Larry James @ 7:00 am

A great DJ makes the reception! He will suggest the right mix of music; how he will interact with the guests to keep the party going; make your announcements properly and any other attention to details. A typical DJ will only be able to play about a dozen songs an hour at the reception.

musicnotesIn some of the receptions I’ve attended the DJ or wedding entertainer will ask the guests if they have any special requests for music to be sure to tell him/her with little success. Here is a terrific idea to overcome this dilemma.

When you send your wedding invitations most will include an RSVP card. On the RSVP cards add a line for a song they might like to hear at the reception. This way you know what the guests want to hear and they will be excited when the DJ or band plays their special request. It will help your guests dance the night away and make unforgettable memories at your wedding reception.

If you have a wedding website include a section asking your guests to submit songs they’d like to hear. You could even ask the DJ to recognize the requester when playing the song.

DJhappyfaceMake a list of the songs and make the songs that fit your tastes a part of the song choices you give to the DJ or band. Also give your DJ a “Do Not Play” list of songs NOT to play (Electric Slide, Hokey Pokey, Macarena, chicken dance, etc.). That way if someone requests a song that is on the list the DJ can explain to the guest that the bride and groom have requested that that song not be played.

A great wedding entertainer (sometimes called a DJ – ;-)) will of course filter these requests and won’t play anything inappropriate. The music for your reception is the soundtrack to one of the most important days of your life – chose the music carefully. Have him play to the older guests early.

Submit your music list at least two to three weeks prior to the wedding if you are using a DJ, this will allow them plenty of time to compile the music or to acquire any songs that they may not have in their library. Allow the DJ their discretion to play the music in the order that best fits the crowd.

The more entertained your guests are, the less you have to worry about them having a good time, and the more you can concentrate on each other. Your guests may forget many of the small details of your wedding like the favors and the flowers or even the food, but they will most likely remember whether they danced, laughed and had a good time.

bridesign2One of my frequent DJ annoyances is: The music is waaaaay too loud as the DJ introduces the wedding party and the bride and groom. Make a note to tell the DJ you want the names of the wedding party heard when he introduces them.

BONUS Tip: Have a little girl carry a “Here comes the Bride” sign as she walks down the aisle just before the bride. Click on the photo to the left to get more info on this sign.

New Rules. . . for Wedding Consultants

Filed under: Guest Authors,Wedding Consultants — Larry James @ 7:00 am
Tags:

Sharon Naylor, Guest Author

When you think of wedding coordinators/consultants, you might think about Jennifer Lopez in “The Wedding Planner,” calm, cool and with every detail perfectly handled. You might also think of Franck from the Steve Martin re-make of “Father of the Bride,” eccentric, out of control, and over the top. These Hollywood caricatures of the wedding coordinator can make you wonder “What’s this going to be like?” when you start thinking about hiring a pro to help you create your perfect wedding.

Before you run away from the idea – perhaps thinking that it’s going to be too expensive or that the professional is going to run wild with your wedding plans – stop for a moment and consider that today’s wedding coordinators have new rules. The industry has adapted to offer 21st century services that fit with your chosen involvement level and budget. It’s worth considering hiring an expert when you review the following new rules and advantages of bringing in some professional help.

Select Services Only

• Narrowing down the best vendors and professionals in each category: flowers, photographers, musicians, and so on so that you can interview each one and make your final selections. Saves you a ton of time, and brings in proven pros for your consideration.

• Serving as a site scout, recommending those great, unique locations you’re dreaming of for your wedding. An experienced pro will know the location of a great historic estate home with a garden and marble terrace, or the perfect beach sites to see the sunset, or the ideal places to take your wedding pictures. His or her knowledge will save you hours of research.

• Reviewing, negotiating and amending all of your contracts with your chosen wedding professionals. This will cut out those questionable clauses and extra charges, making sure there’s an airtight refund clause, and checking to see if the vendor has adequate insurance.

• Pointing you towards great resources for ethnic and multicultural or interfaith weddings. An experienced pro with years in the business has contacts with the best and most legitimate experts out there. They can hook you up with ethnic associations, and even provide printouts or booklets explaining various ethnic and religious rituals you’re considering for your wedding.

• Pointing you toward the unusual things you might want to rent or use for your wedding day: a horse-drawn carriage, a trolley, a chocolate fountain, and so on.

• Serving as ringmaster on your wedding day only, so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. While you’re at the day spa having your hair, nails and makeup done, the very capable pro you hired is supervising the setup and decoration of your wedding sites, running out to buy the bags of ice that your caterer forgot, and making sure that everything is as you want it. Most couples say that this is the best investment possible: letting someone else handle the last minute crises so that they don’t have to, and so that their family doesn’t have to. It’s one of the best services out there.

Diplomacy Services

It seems that nearly everyone has a story about an out-of-control mother-in-law, battling bridesmaids, parents who think they own the wedding because they’re paying for it, and grandparents who are fuming because you’re not having the religious wedding they think you should have. Very few couples escape these kinds of family squabbles, and some even think of eloping to escape it, sacrificing their wedding dreams. This is another area where wedding coordinators have stepped up their new rules, stepping in to act as family diplomacy experts and problem-solvers.

Click book cover for info!

• Today’s wedding coordinators get training at conferences and in their professional associations to serve as mediators.

• Today’s coordinators are skilled at reading people, assessing problems, and suggesting solutions.

• They will run interference when the bride confides that she’s clashing with her mother or mother-in-law-to-be.

• They can suggest compromises that have worked with other wedding couples in the same situation.

• They can organize counseling for the couple with officiants, knowing that a skilled officiant has handled ceremony conflicts many times. Often, the officiant can orchestrate compromises that make the couple and their families happy.

• They can make the call or send the e-mail the bride is afraid to send to her troublesome bridesmaid.

• They can suggest great books, articles and Web sites for the bride and groom’s use in family diplomacy, and to help the couple prepare for the marriage ahead and their new relationships with in-laws.

Always find your wedding coordinator through word-of-mouth referrals from friends, or through a wedding coordinator professional association – never purely out of a phone book. The quality of service you get comes only from the quality of experience your coordinator has. So pick a good one!

Creative Guest Book Idea!

Filed under: Guest Books — Larry James @ 7:00 am
Tags: ,

weddingcaricatureHaving your guests sign your wedding guest book is a great way to remember those who were present for the biggest day of your life. Bored with the typical sign-in albums with listing of names where wedding guests basically sign and pass it around?

Here is another HOT idea to make your guest wedding book a hip modern thing of beauty that you’ll love to enjoy in the years to come and add a unique touch to your wedding reception.

Bring life to your Wedding celebration. You may want to hire a caricature artist (also known as a cartoon artist or cartoonist) to draw the portrait of the bride and groom and let the wedding guests sign on it as they arrive.

Caricaturists are very popular at wedding receptions. Guests can be drawn in literally under 5 minutes while they sit comfortably with a drink in their hand. Wedding caricatures can be drawn up in full color or black line style. Some artists can draw the caricature from a photo.

BONUS Tip: While your guests are sipping their favorite beverage and the bride and groom are getting your photos taken after the ceremony, why not hire a caricature artist to entertain them with hilarious look-alike caricatures? A typical artist can draw about 15 to 18 people per hour in black and white. Color takes a little longer.

A live caricaturist at your wedding reception provides not only great entertainment, but it also gives the guests a personalized memento of the event.

Brides and grooms will often have a caricature of them on their “Save-the-Date” cards.

There is Only One…

Filed under: Shameless Promotion!,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am

One what… you may ask?

I’ll get to that.

#1Recently at the Greater Phoenix Bridal Fashion Debut – the largest Bridal Show in America – I had a bride and groom come by my booth. It was a couple that I had married previously about 4 years before. Here is what they said.

“Larry, you are on incredible human being [at which time I blushed!]. We met you at the Bridal Show about a year before we finally decided to hire you as our wedding officiant. We liked you, your personality and everything about you the moment we met you but we decided after out initial interview with you that we would look around at other officiants before we made up out mind. Boy, did we waste a lot of time. You kept in touch by giving us a list of tips about weddings, honeymoons, and a whole lot more rally great information. Your wedding blog was a godsend. You called from time to time and were never a pest because you always had something to share that was helpful to planning our wedding and in our search for the right officiant.”

As they were telling me this, several couples walked up to get my brochure and business card. Before I could say anything to them, the couple I referred to above turned to them and said:

“You really need to hire this guy! He married us about 4 years ago and our guests showered us with compliments about our wedding ceremony. We looked at other wedding officiants but we never found anyone who was more helpful to us than Larry James even after 5 months of not knowing whether we were going to hire him. He told us of new ideas that would make our wedding better. It was incredible the great ideas he passed along to us. All that made planning so much easier – not just about the ceremony but he delivered the total package telling us that by doing some non-traditional things it would keep our guests interested and make out wedding more memorable. He was right! As a result, planning our wedding was so much easier than we expected. There is only one Larry James! Hire him. He’s the best!”

I looked at the two couples who had just walked up and said, “I could not have said it better myself!” 😉

einsteinNow you know. There is only one Larry James.

One bride I spoke with recently admitted, “I’m such a novice at weddings I don’t even know what questions to ask.” If you have questions about weddings… call me. I will do my best to answer your questions or lead you to someone who can. No obligation. I promise.

My philosophy is always about service – giving more than what is expected – whether you hire me or not.

Larry’s Note: My “romantic” wedding ceremony is no secret. It’s on my Website. Anything – I really mean ANYTHING that you don’t like, I will help you change the words or you can take it out. You always have the last word about what is said in your wedding ceremony. No exceptions! Click here for my ceremony!

Are You Ready For 12/12/12?

Filed under: Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am
Tags:

Let the 12/12/12 countdown begin!

December 12, 2012 will be a huge day for brides-to-be this year! Some say that the ancient Mayan civilization believed the world would end in 2012. Other people say the Mayans did not believe this. We are on the brink of discovering who is right. In the meantime, we can begin planning a truly auspicious event; your wedding!

12_12_12Hooray! You’re hubby will actually be able to remember your wedding date: 12/12/12. Although it’s a Wednesday, the people who matter and really care will be there. Some wedding venues offer discounts on weekdays.

Couples have enjoyed the opportunity to have an easy wedding anniversary date to remember with dates like 01/01/01, 02/02/02 and 03/03/03, etc., and destination wedding venues for those special dates often sell out 6 to 9 months in advance.

Triple Digit Trivia – These wedding dates will not happen again for 89 years until the year 2101 when it will run again for twelve years. For each of these dates, twice per day, in the morning, A.M. and in the evening, P.M., the year, day, hour, minute and second will be the same.

If you plan on taking advantage of this very special wedding date – you may want to start booking, like, yesterday. It’s not too late though.

Make it a destination wedding in Arizona! In December, the weather here is terrific, whereas in other parts of the U.S. they are shoveling snow. The near ideal weather in December allows for many outdoor wedding venue options. Country clubs, resorts, golf clubs and private gathering spots are abundant in Arizona. The average temperature is a perfect 70 degrees.

12_12_12anniversaryIn the desert, we do December differently. The winter grass is growing, the palms swaying are in the breeze. We decorate our houses and the cacti in our desert yards with chile pepper lights while wearing our t-shirts and shorts. We also drive around town looking at the Christmas lights in our convertibles with the top down. 😉

Consider:

• Have 6 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen = 12 in your wedding party.
• Have the magic words, “I now pronounce you husband and wife” occur at 12:12 p.m. on 12/12/12.
• Have Twelve Drummers Drumming. 😉

If you know someone who will be celebrating their 12th wedding anniversary, it might be good to suggest that have a “renewal of vows” ceremony on 12/12/12.

If you are choosing a special calendar date wedding, chances are that other brides are also choosing it for the same reason so be sure to pick your day, book the wedding venue and hire the Wedding Officiant (in that order). As 12/12/12 quickly approaches, get a head start on the wedding rush and book your wedding vendors now!

Why Do I Need a Wedding Video?

Filed under: Videography,Wedding Video — Larry James @ 7:00 am
Tags: ,

Wedding Officiant… check! Dress… check! Flowers… check! Photos… check! Video… Hmmm…

So often brides and grooms-to-be overlook the importance of having a wedding videographer capture the moments of their wedding. But why? Is it because we are haunted by the stereotypical idea of a wedding video shot by Uncle Bob? Or is it because we don’t consider it a priority?

VideographerWedding couples usually say that photos suffice in capturing the memories of the day and that video is unnecessary. Photos are great but video allows you to relive your wedding day as often as you like, anytime you like. A wedding video is like a “time machine.” It is inevitable that your wedding day will move in high speed and become a be a blur for you and your parents.

Picture the bride getting ready. How could she possibly see all of the other things going on around her? Her groom with his groomsmen before the ceremony or the many people waiting for her to make her big entrance. Only with the help of video can this be made possible. Imagine the excitement of sitting down together as a couple and seeing the parts you missed.

A wedding video is a very simple solution for making sure all the memories remain after the gifts have been opened and the flowers long wilted away. I never want a bride and groom to have regrets, so I always approach the topic and present my thoughts on why it is important to have a video to seize the day.

A professional wedding video should tell the story of your wedding day. Using creative camera work, a keen attention to detail, and artistic editing using music, the right blend of effects and transitions, the professional wedding videographer will produce a video you will watch often and be proud to show others.

With video, you can see so many details and moments that may have been missed in real time – body language, facial expressions and the moment guests arrive, to name a few.

wedVideoTop 5 Reasons a Bride Needs a Video! – by Carl Anderson of Princess Bride Cinematic Videography

1. To relive, in both visual and professional sound, her vows of love to her groom, (and his to her)!

2. To remember how beautiful she looked on the day (in full HD quality)

3. To hear her once-in-a-lifetime speeches and toasts

4. To share her love story with her future children

5. To have the best gift she can give to herself and her husband on every anniversary: the gift of her wedding day on Video.

Besides this, video has come a long way in the past 25 years since Princess Bride Cinematic Videography first started: with Blu-ray technology and HD cameras, we can provide her with her wedding memories on a format that will make her look and sound as good 25 years from now as the day itself. Video is the best long-term Investment a Bride can make for her wedding day! A true video is a memoir that will last for future generations.

Tell Uncle Bob to leave his handy cam at home and come and enjoy the wedding. Give him another job if you want him involved in your wedding. Couples who have their family members or friends videotape the day, have been disappointed because they have run out of batteries, missed very important moments, taken shaky or bad footage and basically produced a video that they are not proud to show.

Larry’s Note: A very special “Thank you” to Sarah & Carl Anderson of Princess Bride Cinematic Videography for his contribution to this article and excellent work on the video below. Visit his Website: www.PrincessBrideVideo.com. Arizona (Greater Phoenix Area & Tucson) and Minnesota (Twin Cities Area). – 5 Stars from Larry James!
