I think it’s wonderful that you were having such a great time at your wedding that you didn’t even notice that time was flying by.  That’s how I felt on my wedding day too.  Not everything works out perfect on your wedding day, but I think it would be a bit indulgent to have another party so soon.  After all, you got to do your cake cutting, first dance, etc.

So what were you doing during the hour after dinner ended and the dancing didn’t begin?  Did you have a mistress of ceremonies or ANYONE else that should have been paying attention to the flow of the evening for you?  This seems very odd.

However, like PP said, shit happens and you don’t get a do-over, you only get married once.  I think that is exactly the risk you take when you let a friend or anyone that’s not a TRUE professional be one of your wedding vendors.

If you really want to spend your money to throw another party complete with payin g for another DJ, food, drinks, chairs, and tables, that’s certainly your perogative. But I imagine that you may have other financial priorities to focus on now, and throwing another party just because you didn’t get enough dancing time at your original party  may not be the wisest use of your funds and mental energies. Just a thought.

I recently wrote a post on a similar topic (here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-do-i-get-over-all-the-things-that-went-wrong).  I really think you should give yourself some time to get some distance and perspective before you make any decisions about throwing another party.  I promise, the DJ’s screw-ups may still annoy you, but you’ll feel a lot better overall.

I know you’re hurting and you hope the “make-up” party will make you feel better, but it’s an expensive proposition just to make sure your playlist is right this time.  Plus, your wedding day is your wedding day, flaws and all.  Your party won’t feel as special to you as your reception did and could just lead to more disappointment.

Don’t beat yourself up about it! I’m sure everything else was amazing, and even if your guests noticed something off they won’t remember it in a month — what they will remember is how happy you were and how amazing you looked, and that they had a good time.

First of all, I’m sure you meant to say husband instead of fiance 🙂

Second, I am sorry that you were disappointed in your DJ.  It happens, and is unfortunate.   But you had a great time at your wedding, and I’m sure your guests did too, so I think its time to move on for a while.  If you want to celebrate again, I think you should wait at least a year.  If I were a guest at a friends’ wedding and they threw another one (well, wedding celebration anyway) so soon, I would find it kind of attention seeking and odd, and likely wouldn’t go.

First – Congratulations on getting married!!! It sounds like you had such a wonderful time visiting with friends and family that you didn’t even notice how time was flying by. I’m sorry that your DJ didn’t work out so well. But it sounds like you still got in all the important parts of the reception. Just didn’t get some of the music you wanted. Which sucks, but I don’t think it’s the end of the world. I’m sure everyone still had a wonderful time. There are always parties to throw in the future (brithdays, anniversaries, new years, just for fun, etc.). But your wedding is now done. I wouldn’t recommend trying to re-do the reception. As a guest I would think it was odd. And it would be expensive. And I’m afraid to think it might detract from the original wedding, which was so much more important than the dancing music!

It’s not worth it unless you want to do it in a year for an anniversary party.

I would say skip the “re do”.

You married the man you love. Your family and friends were there to celebrate with you. The End. Those are the most important things in my opinion.

Sorry your sad, re-doing won’t fix anything….not to mention if I got invited to a wedding celebration when the wedding just happened, I would be puzzled to say the least.
