Uplighting has become a popular trend for many weddings, almost a necessity for certain venues. Just a few uplights can dramatically alter how you feel about a space, taking you from “Didn't we go to a wedding here last summer” to “OMG!” There are a lot of very pretty venues out there – but the vast majority of them benefit from uplighting – how can you tell if your wedding venue could use a little extra pop?
In the 9th century (about 1300 years ago) The Banu Musa brothers in Baghdad invented an automatic organ and flute player that played a lot like a player piano or music box (invented in 1796). The player piano used paper scrolls in 1876. Were they Djs? Could you DJ with them?
Many of the traditions that make up the contemporary wedding date back to before writing; others are far more recent than you might think. We owe most of our traditions to a relatively few groups including the Sumerians, Romans and British, but some come from far around the world and others from right here at home. The historical journey follows two main themes; fertility and keeping evil spirits at bay.
Picking a DJ may be one of the most important decisions you make for your wedding. They more than provide a soundtrack for your wedding – they’re in charge of handling the mood, tone, pulse, and flow of your reception. Making the wrong choice can put your guests off, cost you unnecessary time and money, and undo months of hard work.
Surely you've seen them in Bridal Magazines and on wedding sites.
While there's no such thing as a bad question when you're face to face with your DJ, there are some questions that are frequently repeated that don't tell you much of anything.
