One of our goals at Dansations DJ's/Event Services is to ensure each and every one of our potentianl clients gets the information they need to make the best decisions about whom to hire for their events. This may include experiences of other event professionals. To that end, we'd like to share the following. Tom Haibeck is the autor of “Wedding Toasts Made Easy” and “The Wedding MC”. He recently attended a wedding as a guest. Here is his feedback on a ‘DJ’ that was a friend of the bride and groom and not a professional:
COVER ME: Listen to the Music (In A Different Way)
We’ve all heard them on the Celestial / broadcast or Internet stations before and had this reaction: “I know that song – but I like the original. “X” did it better.” We’re talking about “covers” – songs recorded by people after they’ve been made famous (or not) by another singer or songwriter.

You’re going through your e-mail and there it is – an Evite for your “X-Year” High School Reunion. What’s more – it’s sent to a ‘select few’ of you class asking to help plan it! We say – GO FOR IT!

When it comes to the Bouquet Toss at your wedding you may just pass this by as a normal gather all the ‘single’ ladies together, toss the bouquet over your shoulder and you’re done with it. That’s how many brides play it without giving much thought to it. May I suggest it doesn’t need to come to that?
Let’s say you’re a bride that wants to keep your bouquet. Just tell your florist. Ask them to prepare a ‘throw’ bouquet for your guests so you can keep the original. In fact you may be able to find in-season flowers that are similar to your colors but no as pricy.
Questions - everyone has them. “How long have you been a …?”, “Can you recommend a …for my wedding?”, “What kind of music do you play?”, “What does it cost?” These are good questions – but when do you ask them?

It’s important to know which ones you want or need and ask about them. You may also realize how much a potential vendor may help you in area’s you may not have considered. Let’s look at some important questions, when to ask them and why.
