The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™

If you’re looking for a good wedding planning book to read, head over to Amazon.Com to order a copy of Peter Merry’s book, The Best Wedding Reception Ever!™  If you want to be both creative and realistic in planning your wedding, I highly recommend you read this guide to planning your entire event, from setting a date to hiring vendors, to the big day itself.  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.  Peter also maintains a wedding planning blog, Merry Weddings.

Planning your wedding can seem overwhelming to even the most organized brides and grooms.  Fortunately, there are a number of resources online to help you make sure you have every last detail taken care of before your big day.  As the owner of Spinning with Style, a wedding DJ service in the Hudson Valley of New York, I, DJ Bri Swatek, recommend some of the following checklists and timelines to ensure that you have nothing to do except enjoy, eat, drink, dance, and celebrate with your family and friends on your wedding day!

When and how will I get all of this done?

Your wedding is a celebration of your marriage and who you are as a couple–it should express your unique style.  No two weddings are the same, and the same goes for the planning process.  Focus on the items, vendors, and services that are most important to you early on, and never be afraid to ask your key vendors for their advice, input, and help–true wedding professionals want to make sure you have the very best wedding and will be more than happy to do anything they can to help you realize your dreams on your big day.

Congratulations,

Bri
