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:
Have you ever been to my venue before? (Will they visit if they have not been there before?)
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.)
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?)
Do you have general liability insurance? (Covers damages caused by them or their equipment.)
How will you plan for my event? (Some don’t even plan, they just show up.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When Terha first met with me she explained that she wanted a 1920’s themed wedding; but, not a flapper wedding. The ceremony would be at 11:00AM and the reception immediately following. Because it was an afternoon event she wasn’t sure how much people would dance so she wanted some games that her guests could participate in and enjoy.
One of the ideas I had for a game was a version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. The only two people actually doing the game would be Terha and Jay but I thought the guests would get a real hoot out of it. I was right! I created pictures of Terha in her dress and Jay in a suit. All Jay had to do with pin a bouquet to Terha and she had to pin a Bow Tie on him. You can look at the picture to see how well she did.
Instead of a regular cake, Terha had cupcakes. We kept them in a back room until time to deliver the cupcakes to the guests. Terha’s friends, Shannon, Julia, Coral, Lolly, Dixie, Michelle, Lisa, and Donna served trays of cupcakes to the guests while entering the room to the strains of “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast.
I am delighted to say that Terha and I have become more than vender/client. We have become friends. Which I am sure The Next Door Restaurant and Generations Martini Bar both appreciate because we love meeting and enjoying their bacon wrapped dates.
Oh, did I mention that we only played two games. Scott was rocking the house with great music and the guests were loving it. They danced until the venue kicked us out.
Many thanks to the ladies at Pelican Lakes for the awesome wedding ceremony site, Emily Moon Photography, and Susan at Something Borrowed for the fabulous decor items.
