Your music idea sounds fab. Not sure what else you need advice on. Maybe I don’t understand because I’m not a wedding vendor but I imagine vendors plan their weddings the same as everyone else, except they might have a greater knowledge base to start from…?

I used to DJ. But clubs not weddings. I’m chipping in as music was so important to me for our day. Re the DJ, I did exactly what you did and asked a fellow DJ pal to DJ the later part of the night (he also sorted the music set up for the ceremony). He plays exactly what you outlined and it went down a storm. So thumbs up for that option you mention.

I’m a vendor. I think most people that work in this industry are either VERY particular or really laid back. Like you, I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen people pay A LOT for things that don’t even matter in long run. I feel like people are expecting me to have a fancy wedding because they’ve seen those that I work on, but I’m not interested. When you do so many, you see how quickly the day flies by and how people stress over details that often times go unnoticed. For my wedding, I focused on what’s important: convenient venue (WITH LOTS OF PARKING πŸ˜‚), great food, great drinks, and great music. Most guests aren’t going to remember whether or not you had gold flatware or if you spent an arm and a leg on specialty China & linens….Guests remember how much FUN they had.

I’m keeping it relatively inexpensive and very relaxed. I just want to show up and have a good time. It was also my goal to have everything completely planned by the end of March because I literally will not have time to work on my own wedding after that. I already have 31 weddings for 2017 😱. 

 

I think your idea for the music sounds great! Also, I did get discounts from vendors that I have a great relationship with.πŸ‘πŸ½
