How Much

Have you ever wanted to buy something that you have never purchased before?  Don’t even know what questions to ask other than how much?  Yeah, me too.

If all a DJ needed to do was play music and nothing else you could bring a radio or an iPod and that’s it.  We can even rent you a sound system to hook up with your iPod.

So here are some quick questions to ask:

  1. Have you ever been to my venue before?  (Will they visit if they have not been there before?)
  2. How much experience do you have for my type of event? (A rave DJ is not a good choice for a wedding if they have no wedding experience.)
  3. Tell me about your music library.  (They then should ask what you are looking for.  Are they interested in your needs or just bragging about having a gazillion songs?)
  4. Do you have general liability insurance?  (Covers damages caused by them or their equipment.)
  5. How will you plan for my event?  (Some don’t even plan, they just show up.)
  6. Have you ever taken any training to improve your performance musically or as an emcee?  (Do they care about becoming better in order to provide you with a fabulous party or just interested in getting money for playing music?)

I have lots more questions for you.  Give me a call at 970*217*9285, I’m happy to share.

 

#1 Secret to a Great Wedding Reception

Since this is a DJ website you might think we would say it’s all about the DJ. It’s not!  Yes, music can really help to create the mood you want for your party; but, the reality is this:

Wherever you are, that’s where the party is.  That is where your guests will be.

If you step outside to have a cigar your guests will step out with you. guests dancing If you are on the dance floor, they will be on the dance floor too.  At the bar?  They will be right there drinking with you.

You see, your guests came to be with you.  To help you celebrate and to enjoy your company.  So as you plan your party, think about what it is you want your guests to be doing.  What you want to do.  Then plan accordingly.  Of course, you want to remember the music too.  🙂  McKinney Entertainment DJs can create a lovely background for you,  help you rock the dance floor, or both.  Your choice.

Neutrals seem to be this summer’s colors.

Last year teals and shades of purple were very popular colors for weddings.  This summer so far we are seeing more neutral hues and pastels

Brenna and Brett

It can’t get much more country than Terry Bison Ranch, the setting for Brenna and Brett’s reception.  They were married two weeks earlier at Sprague Lake just outside Estes Park but wanted a larger venue to share their joy with family and friends.  When they shared with us that the ceremony was going to be videotaped we came up with a fun way to introduce them into the room for the reception.  Just after the pastor announced them as man and wife on the video and they started to walk out of the ceremony we brought them into the room in a seamless style that helped the guests feel as though they had actually been at the ceremony.

First bridal dance

Family and friends provided a variety of goodies and treats for a heavy appetizer reception Kelly Graeneweg captured plenty of magical moments with her camera and Brenna’s grandfather made all of the centerpieces that adorned the tables.  The main color was bright sunny yellow from the sunflowers and the bridesmaids in a lovely, earthy shade of blue. The room was a bit warm but everyone had a fun time and the night ended with guests being greeted by fireworks as they left the reception.
For their bridal dance Brenna and Brett chose my favorite first dance song so far this year, Wrapped Around by Brad Paisley.

Micah and Andrea

The weather could not have been better for Andrea and Micah’s outdoor wedding at Brookside Gardens.  Slightly overcast, it made the color of the garden’s flowers really pop and kept the temperatures from being too hot.  Everyone was smiling as Andrea arrived under the floral canopy of the arbor.  After the ceremony guests were able to enjoy yummy appetizers from Carter’s Creative Catering and beverages from the well stocked Brookside bar.  Dinner provided by Carter’s was a scrumptious  buffet with both chicken and brisket main courses.
Andrea and Micah selected shades of blue and pink/coral for their colors which we were able to enhance by matching the décor lighting.  Audra Rose Floral created lovely bouquets for the ladies and photographer Amanda Jarmen was a gem to work with.  They chose Amazed by Lonestar for their first dance

Katie and Travis

Start with the intimate setting of The McCreery House, throw in tasty BBQ from A Catered Affair with Connie, delicious cake from Batter Up, and wine slushies and you have yourself an awesome wedding.  Katie and Travis not only did all that, they added  some theater style, fresh popped popcorn, some classic rock and country tunes and danced the night away.  A shout out to Kathi Wright who did a fabulous job as their officiant.
Katie chose coral, teal, lace, and burlap for her décor.  Linda Stotz and her staff are always great to work with.  They genuinely enjoy meeting people and creating a fun, yet relaxing atmosphere.  Guests loved the wine slushies which were flavorful and refreshing on a warm summer day.  Katie and Travis started the dancing with Queen of My Double Wide Trailer by Sammy Kershaw.  It was perfect for the fun atmosphere they had created.  Her dance with her father was Last Date by Floyd Cramer.

Jessica and Richard

The Bill Huth Overlook Chapel at the Estes Park Center YMCA provides a stunning view of the continental divide and a gorgeous place for a wedding ceremony.  The first time Scott performed there McKinney Entertainment provided a battery operated sound system as the site did not have electricity.  That has since changed adding more options for couples wishing to take advantage of the richness of the mountain setting.
The Pine Room was the perfect size for a cozy reception with family and friends.  The food was wonderful as always at the YMCA.  Jessica and Richard also provided a Peach Moscato for toasting.  At the end of the night we were able to sample a small sip and it was very sweet, but delicious.
Cupcakes in different flavors allowed the guests to select their favorites and Best Day Floral did a great job on the flowers.  Occasionally we run into a photographer that thinks the whole day is about the photos and actually keeps the  couple from enjoying their own reception.  That was not the case with Krista Juhl!  Again, we had the pleasure of working with a photographer who managed to take lots of photos, yet worked diligently to be sure Jessica and Richard were able to spend time with their family and friends.  Jessica chose taupe and champagne for her colors.  She and Richard only had eyes for each other as they danced to Marry You by Bruno Mars.

New Year’s Resolutions

Gosh, here it is the beginning of March.  Time to review all those New Year’s Resolutions.  Did we keep them?  Break them?  Not even make them?

In our house it was all three.  We decided rather than actually making resolutions this year we would set some goals.  We are on track for some, sort of dropped the ball on a couple and doing well with at least one.

1.  Reduce credit card debt.
We stopped using our credit cards and the debt is indeed going down.  Not as fast as we would like but still it is getting smaller.
2.  Set aside one day a week to actually have some fun.
Doing pretty well on this one…if you consider detailing your pickup inside and out to be fun.  We did!  🙂  We’ve also spent days doing nothing which is kind of new for us.
3.  Walking the dogs every day.
Not doing so well on this one and feeling a little guilty.  Thank goodness we have a nice yard for them to run around in.  Still.

How are you doing?  If you are slipping a little please join Scott and I in accepting that tomorrow is a new day and goals are just that, something we strive for.  If we fall off the horse we dust ourselves off, get back in the saddle, and move ahead.
-Diana

Things about Rings

Classic Grace
Quite a bit of thought went into your engagement ring, whether you pinned favorites and dropped hints for months, or your fiancé enlisted a trusted friend—or picked it out on his own. There are a million rock/band permutations these days, so the unique bling that got a “yes!” says a lot about your personality and style, says Julie Sabatino, founder of The Stylish Bride. Here, she helped us decode what your engagement ring style really says about you.
Your ring has: A round solitaire diamond
You are: A total traditional–and most likely, your ring finger is now sporting something similar to what your grandmother had. “You’re a classic,” says Sabatino. “Just like your ring, you have a timeless sensibility.” You skip the trends and lean toward things that never go out of style. Lucky you: You’re the one who never looks dated or out-of-style in old photos.
Boho Beauty
Your ring has: A pavé infinity band with a square diamond
You are: “You’re relaxed, fun, and free-spirited—a boho bride,” Sabatino says; you’re all about delicate features, like a pretty, detailed band. Your lifestyle (and personal style) are led by what makes you feel untethered and of-the-moment.
Something Special
Your ring has: An ornate, multi-diamond style
You are: One-of-a-kind. “You have an appreciation for unique items and one-offs,” Sabatino says. “And you don’t mind a little work or digging, because ‘the find’ is totally worth it.” A die-hard vintage lover, you like your possessions—and your people—a little eccentric and unconventional.
Daring Darling
Your ring has: A wider width band
You are: Bold and never feel the obligation to go with tradition. “You totally go your own way and have your own style,” Sabatino says. While you’re not always looking for the newest trend, you find things that speak to you and wear them without apology.
Traditional With a Twist
Your ring has: Three matching cut stones and a mixed-metal setting
You are: Anything but boring. You go for the classic simplicity of three similar-cut stones, but take it up a notch with a mixed metal setting. “You can’t resist what’s in style right now,” Sabatino says. Your friends consistently ask you for fashion advice, and your love of what’s coming straight off the runways means your closet is extremely well-stocked.
A Flair for the Dramatic
Your ring has: A large square diamond
You are: Confident and proud. “Your ring no doubt says, ‘I got a rock,'” Sabatino says. That big, gorgeous statement piece is a reflection of your glam, Old Hollywood style. You love making an entrance and enjoy being the life of the party.
Simple and Elegant
Your ring has: A bezel setting
You are: No fuss, no muss. “You’re the ultimate minimalist,” Sabatino says. “You want something that lasts through all the trends and fads.” You appreciate fine craftsmanship and covet a ring that will last a lifetime.
Warm and Sweet
Your ring has: A halo setting
You are: A total softie, and you’ve got a serious romantic side. “You love soft, ethereal, feminine things,” Sabatino notes. You take advantage of all nature has to offer and you probably always have a vase of fresh flowers on the cocktail table in your apartment.

Cannabis and Alcohol

We all knew it was going to happen sooner or later.  In the past we have had guests that consumed a bit too much alcohol and as a result we have seen fights break out, people sent to the hospital in ambulances, a groom miss most of the reception (bachelor party the night before), and even one newlywed couple yelling at each other about getting their marriage annulled 2/3 of the way into the reception.  No doubt about it alcohol can seriously mess up your wedding day or party.

In Colorado we now have cannabis aka marijuana available  either to smoke or eat.  Many planners have said they are seeing a huge increase in cannabis/alcohol consumption that are turning a fun event into medical emergencies.  Many out-of-state folks have no idea how much cannabis is safe and are consuming too much.

One planner had a bride spend five hours in the hospital before the doctors were able to adequately treat her.  She had refused to admit that she had mixed cannabis and alcohol together.

When planning your next party or wedding please give careful consideration as to whether or not you want to encourage cannabis use and what measures you can take to deal with any issues that may arise as a result.
