- Wedding: August 2012
I am trying to get the details of my wedding reception together… Our reception venue is a little choppy – it is going to be in a mansion, & tables are in different rooms, with the head table in the center room. I don’t love this, but I love the venue! So you take the good with the bad I guess…
Anyway, unless guests are sitting on a side of the room nearest to the center room, they wont be able to see the dances, cake cutting, etc unless they physically get up and move into the room – which is huge, but inconvenient. We are having a strolling violinist play during cocktails and then the dinner, which would be the best way to entertain this set up.
Our dancing will take place on the grounds outside in a tent after the main events/dinner are over. I want to get all of the events out of the way between courses so that people dont get too antsy. Since our band will be set up outside, I do not think it would be right to have the lead singer announce the wedding party, first dances, etc. Plus, the lead singer is one of my FH groomsmen, & I thought it would overshadow his Bridesmaid or Best Man role. AND he makes me a little nervous with this responsibility!
Do I hire a day-of coordinator to announce the special events that will take place? It is a simple fix, and my old dance teacher is a wedding coordinator, I know she would be a stickler with perfection & on her A game. I just wouldnt want people to be like, who is this random chick??
UGH! It would be so much easier with a DJ, but I’m a sucker for a good live band!
How did other bees without a dj/emcee transition wedding events?
