Weddings, parties and basically just about every event you have music. Your choice of music whether DJ or a band can make it a night to remember or can hurt the event. Although it looks like fun, bands and DJs have a very tough job. When they walk into a room full of people they do not know, they have to be able to think on their feet to make sure the crowd is entertained from the moment they enter until it's over.
If you are from the south, you may recall what was known as a traditional wedding. The traditional wedding was held at the local church with the reception in the same location. Food included mints, nuts, bride and groom cake and the sparkling punch; which consisted of most any flavor punch with ginger ale and sherbet and an ice ring made from a Jell-O mold. If the happy couple was ‘going all out’, that usually consisted of upgrading the catering. This meant adding cheese and crackers. If you listened closely, you would almost always overhear someone telling their spouse they were ready to go out and eat “real food”. Many young girls and ladies were asked to help serve at the reception and it was considered an honor to be asked. Decorations were simple votives and flowers in the middle of the tables.
Receptions have changed. As the wedding industry continues to find new and innovative ways to make a brides dream day come true, the reception has become more personalized in ways we never imagined ten years ago. A staff caters to your guests and your servers are now honored guests at your reception and you will find them on the dance floor.
