ETA disregard post – I didn’t see you got one.  🙂


Synergetic Light & Sound!!!


Not only deo they HATE line dances/chicken dance/etc but they down right state they won’t play any of that unless you approve it.  I was asked real quick about the Wobble and the Cuban Shuffle as they were requested by guests.  he just had his assistant jump down, whisper and ask for my approval with the # of guests who requested and asked what I wanted to do.  I OK-ed it. 🙂  I just didn’t want the macarena or electric slide lol.


Also my DJ was super excited about the wedding intuitively got our styles and everyone had a great time.

bittttersweet:  haha this is so true. We like alternative and oldies and did not want top 40 playing. We had to make that really clear. One DJ was so hyped up it was like he was on coke, he wouldn’t let us get in a word but kept saying he would “fade in the background and won’t steal the attention.” Then we did actually hire a DJ and he was so unresponsive we had to fire him. He was super rude and such a tool. The DJ we finally ended up with is very chill, thankfully. We didn’t want a game show host, just someone to play music and be reliable!
