STAGING KNOWLEDGE

What does it mean when we say DJs need to stage entertainment, and this DJ doesn't "stage" the entertainment as well as that DJ? Simply stated, Staging Entertainment is taking into account what needs to take place before an entertaining spectacle can be carried out, and then going through all the necessary steps so that when it's time for the event to be implemented, everything's in place and ready, assuring that what's supposed to be entertaining really will be. Some DJs just don't do this, or just don't know how to. Actually, most DJs don't know the first thing about staging entertainment. When confronted with a description of how an entertaining segment was pulled off in the context of a party or wedding reception, there are actually an overwhelming number of so-called DJs who remark, "Well gee, all I do is just play the music." I guess that's fine, for whatever it's worth (not much) unless that's all the client wants, and then, a "Just Music DJ" NEEDS to be able to Program and mix proficiently. That should go without saying, in that Programming Music is a whole lot more basic than staging entertainment, and THE most necessary ingredient for anyone who fancies himself a member of the Mobile DJ industry. But in addition to the all-essential programming abilities of the DJ Entertainer, carrying out good staging techniques will most always elicit comments like, "you really are a good DJ," on top of the necessity of playing the kind of great music that each DJ Gig requires.

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain, Rain Go Away, come again another day! Any day but my wedding day

You have been planning this day since you were six. Everything has been confirmed, reconfirmed and paid for. You have done everything you can to ensure that your wedding day is going to be just perfect, but when you wake up on your wedding day it is raining. Surely this is the end of the world?

Well wait just a second. Rain on your wedding day is not always as bad as it first seems. What is this? Who is this kooky writer and what is she talking about? I hear you ask??

Rainy wedding days do not have to be your worst nightmare come true. Listed below are some of the reasons why, and just a few handy hints on how to turn your worst nightmare into the most romantic day of your life.

Romance

Your first big plus is Romance !! Thats right, romance. Rain invokes feelings of intimacy and enchantment. Some of the most romantic days are those when you are greeted in the morning when you wake by the soft fall of rain on the window. It is cozy and romantic and conjures thoughts of snuggling up close with someone you love.

Rain can be romantic and inspiring. Take the opportunity to view the rain as being like the prelude to a new beginning. Your marriage is a new beginning, therefore it is nature’s way of helping you start your marriage with a clean new world.

Besides what bride wouldn't want a romantic wedding?

Photographs

Believe it or not but your photographer will be able to produce beautiful photographs that are in fact enhanced by the weather. Rainy weather can produce soft misty lighting, shiny surfaces and provides opportunity to use some romantic and captivating props.

Soft misty lighting can produce an ethereal glow, rain drops on car windows and beading water on cars, gates, fences and the like can be used to produce photographs that are completely stunning. In fact your photographer will love the opportunity to show off their creativity and flair when they have a misty rainy day to photograph.

Brightly coloured umbrellas, bridesmaids tip-toeing through puddles, your new husband cuddled into a picnic blanket with you are just some of the many rainy day shots that you can adapt to your already carefully laid photographic plans. Remember to ask your photographer about black and white photography as this will further enhance your artistic shots.

Flowers and Make Up

These are little things but to the conscientious bride, they are important. On a cloudy, rainy day, your flowers will actually last longer. On hot sunny days your flowers will start to wilt in a matter of hours. However if you have an overcast day your flowers will remain fresher for longer.

The same goes for your makeup. It is much easier to maintain your face on a rainy day as your make up is less likely to come off due to sweat, and you will not be as worried about a shiny face in your photos as there won't be as much shine.

Face it. It rains time and again in Fayetteville and throughout the Carolinas. But, there really are many positive aspects of rainy day nuptials. The trick is to remain calm and positive. And remember, if the Bride and Groom are relaxed and happy, then the guests will be relaxed and happy too. Providing you with the perfect ingredients for a splendid wedding, come rain, hail or shine.
 
Getting Personal: 10 Tips for a Customized Wedding
Adapted from an article written by T. Shaw


Planning a wedding can sometimes be a challenge. Planning a wedding that is personal and meaningful to you, your fiance, and your guests can be a monumental undertaking. Following are some tips on how to make your ceremony and reception an event that will be remembered.

CEREMONY

1. Instead of having a traditional bouquet of flowers to carry, consider having your bouquet made into four or five sections. Before the wedding, have your maid of honor hand out sections to important people in your life, such as your mother, your fiance's mother, grandparents, or siblings, and collect the bunches of flowers from each of them as you make your way down the aisle.

2. If someone who was special to you has passed away recently, light a remembrance candle for them during the ceremony, or carry their favorite flower in your bouquet.

3. Get detailed in your wedding program. Include a few sentences about each of your attendants, introducing them and explaining why they are special to you. This might also be a good place to write a heartfelt thank-you to them for taking part in your day. Your program could also include details about your day and the traditions that you are following, such as what you've chosen to use as your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

4. Make your own unity candle. A nice way to make your wedding ceremony more personalized is to make your unity candle together. There are kits available at craft stores that make it easy to pour the wax into a mold to make a unique candle. Consider putting some dried rose petals from your mothers garden or other small items into the wax before it cools, making it special to you and your fiance.

5. Walk down the aisle with both parents. This is a great way to honor both of your parents and show that they are equally special to you.

RECEPTION

1. If you are having assigned tables, don't just number them - name them. Use names of places that are significant to you and your husband-to-be, such as the place he proposed or the site of your first date. Or, if you are the adventurous types, name them after the mountains you plan to climb together after you're married! This is also a fun way for your DJ to refer to each table as when they are being invited to the buffet.

2. Rather than having the usual guest book, leave a sheet of stationery and a nice pen at each place setting and ask your guests to write a short note to the happy couple, to be bound in a binder as a timeless keepsake. Or, make a time capsule. Have your guests write out their predictions for where they think you will be in 10 years, and read the notes on your 10-year anniversary.

3. One of the most memorable weddings I attended did not include a receiving line. Instead, the bride and groom had a small cake on each table as a centerpiece. Rather than the usual cake-cutting, they mingled with guests at the reception while they went table to table, serving each cake to their guests. It gave the newlyweds a chance to speak to each of their guests, and was a nice change of pace for the guests.

4. Arrange with your caterer to have a special family dish served at your reception. Is your mom known for her fried chicken, famous throughout the Fayetteville area? Then why not have the caterers serve it? Include a note on the menu cards telling your guests that its Mom’s special recipe.

5. If you are having assigned tables at your reception, consider leaving a small handwritten note at each place setting telling each guest why you are thankful that he or she could attend.
