Your Style: What Does “Fun” Mean to You?

When hiring a DJ for your wedding it is extremely important to find an MC or Host that will help you to customize your event to fit your own personal style, sharing your definition of “fun” with your friends, family, and invited guests.

Throughout the planning process, your DJ should work with you and listen to you as you choose a level of interactivity from “low” (a DJ who is “heard but not seen,” providing only key introductions and announcements, and steering clear of participation dances and props or give-aways) to “high” (featuring only the participation dances and / or party props you choose–and none that you don’t!)

Regardless of your definition of fun–be it low-key, high-energy, elegant, interactive, or classy–a professional DJ will make sure that your event is about you and your guests, and nothing else.

Using your input and direction, DJ Bri Swatek will provide opportunities for you and your friends, family, and invited guests to join in your celebration when and how they choose, dancing to all the music that you know and love–and none that you don’t!

Congratulations,
Bri

Recommended Reading for Brides and Grooms

There are a lot of great guides out there to help brides and grooms plan their wedding.  In fact, a trip to the book store or an online search of the subject can be a little overwhelming! 

 

If you want to be both realistic and creative in planning your wedding, I highly recommend you read Peter Merry’s book, The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™

 

Peter Merry is a disc jockey and wedding entertainment industry innovator, based in California.  While Peter Merry does reflect on entertainment’s role at a wedding, the book is an overall guide to planning your entire wedding, from setting a date to hiring vendors to the big day itself.

 

As a full-time mobile DJ and MC, I feel that Peter Merry’s book provides brides and grooms with a chance to focus their vision in terms of planning their wedding event. It is possible to be both realistic and creative and to spend wisely without cutting corners. However, planning and research are essential in order to create an outstanding, memorable experience for your friends and family on your wedding day.

 

Peter Merry’s example weddings and lists of pros and cons provide brides and grooms with a number of realistic examples of how their planning might turn out given different choices you might make. His years of experience as a “Wedding Entertainment Director” allow him to address a variety of options, such as the daytime wedding vs. the evening wedding, scheduling a wedding at different times throughout the year, when and how to schedule photos, and what type of entertainment to hire.

 

With weddings costing tens of thousands of dollars and taking one to two years to plan, reading a few books and articles on how to invest your time and money only makes sense. I highly recommend you include The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™  by Peter Merry as one of these pieces of research. It’s certainly the kind of book that will get a bride and groom (and their family and friends) talking about their ideas for their wedding day.

 

The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™ by Peter Merry is available for purchase on Amazon.com.
