While the guests arrive - we are playing light jazz, classical, oldies and easy listening music. While your guests are spending the time conversing with friends and relatives, we try to keep the music low key and our volume unobtrusive.
Usually the photographer will take the bridal party for pictures after the ceremony. After the photographer has completed his photo session, at your request, your entertainer will line the bridal party up for their proper introduction.
In most receptions, the receiving line is done at the church as the guests leave, but this can be done in conjunction with the reception introductions. The bride, groom and the parents will line up and greet the guests as they go through the line. This is a great time to say "thank you" to all of your guests for attending your special day.
The toast takes place after dinner, and is usually done by the best man. We will announce the toast several minutes before it happens to insure all the guests have a full glass.
The cake cutting also takes place after dinner. We will coordinate with your photographer to determine the proper time to announce this event.
The bride and groom select their first dance song prior to their wedding date. This song should be well thought out and define something special about the couple. This dance can take place either after the cake cutting, or it may take place after the bride and groom are introduced.
After the bride and groom have danced their first song as husband and wife, they may want to dance with their parents. If they choose to include these dances, the bride will first dance with her father and then the groom will follow by escorting his mother to the dance floor for their special dance together.
Once the parents dance has been completed, the bride and groom may want to have their entire wedding party come to the dance floor for the wedding party dance.
After the formal dances have been completed, we will invite everyone to join in on the dance floor. Your entertainer will then play a mix of music from your request catalog and your guest's requests.
Your entertainer will continue to play music until the end of your event.
Sometime during general dancing your entertainer will ask the bride and groom to make their way out to the dance floor for the garter and bouquet toss. Your entertainer will first invite all the eligible ladies out for the bouquet toss. Once we have a recipient of the bouquet, we will invite all of the eligible men out for the garter toss. Traditionally the bride and groom will have their pictures taken with the lucky bouquet and garter recipients.
