Hiring a DJ - It's the Music They'll Remember

1) You're feet! By all means, bring a change of shoes. No one will see the cute little sneakers you are wearing under that big dress! Wear them while you are taking pictures and dancing to the DJ's music at your Ocean Isle Beach reception.
2) Have a way to pin up the back of your dress. If you plan on dancing, you will need to get all that fabric off the floor. Make sure it is really secure because you will get tripped on and stepped on plenty that day.
3) Thank your family! With the sea of faces you don't see very often, you may overlook the people closest to you.
4) Eat! Don't forget to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's going to be a long day and you don't want to get sick for the honeymoon.
5) Relax. Get your girls together in a quiet place, light some candles, play some soft music and reflect on the importance of staying in each moment.
6) Smile and avoid making silly faces. There are cameras everywhere!
7) Take time to pose for photographs. Don't rush through the photo sessions. While you will be ancy to get back to the party, your wedding photographs are an important keepsake for generations to come.
8) Your undergarments. Make sure your corsett does not make an appearance everytime you move. This is the last thing you should be worrying about.
9) Don't drink alcohol. A glass before the ceremony might calm your nerves but don't drink that day. Everything goes by too quick as it is and you'll want to be 100% there for everything!
10) Most of all, tell your guy how happy he has made you and how much you are looking forward to the rest of your lives!
Myrtle Beach Service Professionals - Expectation is a Two-Way Street
(True Story that could take place at your Myrtle Beach Wedding or ANYWHERE)
Adapted from an article written by Meredyth Sajna
The fun part of planning a wedding in the Myrtle Beach area is just that: lining up a baker, a photographer, a DJ, a florist. You and your soon to be spouse will no doubt pick each one with the greatest of care. The flowers have to be perfect, the food must be just right, and the music what you like to hear, and rightfully so.
While we all expect nothing but top-notch service on our special day, it is important to understand what each contractor has committed to you. At the same time, expect to be held to your end of the deal as well. As dedicated as each contractor is to you, it must be kept in mind that you may not be the day's only customer. It isn't uncommon for a medium-sized flower shop to service several weddings in a day with a carefully orchestrated group of teams who help each other behind the scenes.
In making your plans, put yourself in the shoes of your contractors. Consider this true story:
It was a very busy Saturday for this florist, six weddings involving four service teams and eight vehicles. A portion of the plan went like this: Team A would service Wedding X, both ceremony and reception. Team B was servicing two small ceremonies, Y, in the next town from X, and Z on the far east side of town, at 3:00. Due to the distance involved, Team A was to get wedding X down the aisle and then go set up the reception. On their way back in, Team B was to stop at X's ceremony and pick up the altarpieces and transport them to X's reception hall. After dropping them off, Team B was to continue on and see Z down the aisle. Wedding X's ceremony was only 15 minutes long and started at 1:00. By prearranged agreement, Team B would be stopping by at 1:30 for the altarpieces. Since the flower shop doesn't normally transport flowers from ceremony to reception, it was made very clear that this was being done solely as a courtesy to X, and that Team B could not be delayed. Bride X agreed that since pictures were being done before the ceremony, at 1:30 the flowers would be gone.
Upon arriving at 1:30, Team B was confused to find that pictures were in progress. After waiting twenty minutes they secured permission from the photographer to remove the altarpieces. The bride became verbally irate in the chapel, insisting that everything would run according to her schedule changes, and that if the florist didn't like it, well tough. After several frantic phone calls, Team B had to leave to service wedding Z, which was due to go down the aisle in an hour. In the name of customer service, someone else from the flower shop would go to the chapel and retrieve the altarpieces in their personal vehicle.
It came as no surprise to anybody that this bride had irked more than the florist. Her party had been shooting pictures since 11:00 that morning, delayed the minister for five hours during rehearsal the night before (for a FIFTEEN minute ceremony), and tried to get the limo driver to shop for last minute supplies for the bridesmaids.
In the end, the bride likely had a lousy time, and she certainly lost people willing to do business with her or her family in the future. All of this could be avoided if she had just allowed herself to see things from a broader perspective that would accommodate the views of the Myrtle Beach area wedding professionals that were trying to please her while catering to her needs, thus keeping herself open to be more tolerant, accepting, and hence easy-going, relaxed, and happy.
