Bridal Extravaganza Show Tips

Bridal Extravaganza Show Guide:
Tips On Getting The Most Out Of Your Experience

 So you’ve got the ring, you’ve got your bridesmaids, you’ve got your mom and grandma in tow, and you’ve got the tickets to the show. Now what do you do? Here are a few simple tips to really help to maximize your time and experience at The Bridal Extravaganza.

1. Have A Game Plan
Bridal Extravaganza can be overwhelming for the unprepared bride. There are 100’s of vendors that offer a variety of services from DJ’s down to dental hygiene. So how do you decipher between what is a want versus a need for your wedding? It’s very simple. Do a little prep work before the show. Make a list of what vendors you need for your big day i.e. DJ’s, Caterers, Florist, Photographers, and Wedding Venue.

2. Research Some Vendors
There are a lot of vendors out there, but figuring out who the true professional is very simple. Ask Mr. Google! I guarantee if you Google the type of vendor you are looking for and add Houston, TX behind it, those top 3 results will most likely be at the show. Look at their websites and read some of their reviews to help you narrow down which ones you want to visit. Reviews are the best way to really find out if the vendor you’re looking for is a true professional and can back up the promises they made. Then on the big day, look at the map handed out at the door to plot a course of who to go by and say hello to.

3. Have A List Of Questions
Booking a reliable vendor is a very important decision for the success of your wedding. Go into this show with a clear vision of what you want your big day to look like and find the perfect vendor by asking questions to see if they can bring that vision to life. Having a set of questions is a great way to make a personal connection with a vendor. Look for someone, who after interviewing them, really gets you excited about their service and puts your mind at ease that your wedding will go off without a hitch. So here are some sample questions relating to booking your DJ that may be helpful.
A. Besides DJ’ing what other services do you provide? i.e. up-lighting, custom monogram lighting, dance floor lighting, photo booth, day of event coordinating, and custom introductions
B. Do you provide Master of Ceremonies services?
C. Do you provide sound for the ceremony?
D. Do you bring backup equipment?
E. Are you insured?
F. Are you a member of any professional associations?
G. Will I meet my DJ before my wedding?
H. Are you offering any show specials?

Most Important Question To Ask: How will you make my wedding unforgettable?

4. Don’t Feel Pressured To Purchase Anything
There a lot of big decisions to be made about your wedding. Go into the show with the attitude of going to exclusively meet vendors. Be wary of the people that tell you that “This offer is only good today!”. Finding the right vendor should be about making a personal connection with the person and not a rushed decision. If you find someone that you have truly connected with, give them your information and inquire about having a sit down meeting to discuss your vision and finding the right package that will fit your needs.

5. Have Fun
This show can be a great experience and a ton of fun. Go in there with a game plan but don’t forget to enjoy yourself. Remember that this is your special time and that stressing will not help the experience. So grab some food samples, get a glass of champagne and celebrate the fact that you are getting married.

Top 10 Father Daughter Wedding Songs

admin : December 4, 2012 9:31 am : Blog Posts

Choosing a Father-Daughter song can prove to be a difficult task. I also suggest that the Father-Daughter song chosen has a special meaning to both the Father and Daughter and the song reflects the love that they share towards each other. Having DJ’d hundreds of wedding in the Houston area, there is a wide variety of songs that have made the cut for this precious dance. Although all of the song selections that made the Top 10 List may not have been a song I would choose, it is clear that each father daughter song has special meaning to the bride and her dad.

The 10 Best Father Daughter Songs

Amos Lee’s “Sweet Pea”


Loudon Wainwright III’s “Daughter”


Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine”


The Temptations’ “My Girl”


Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of My Life”


Heartland’s “I Loved Her First”


Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”


Billy Joel’s “Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)”


Time McGraw’s “My Little Girl”


Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”

The Ultimate Wedding Reception

admin : November 26, 2012 12:33 pm : Blog Posts

Insider Secrets From The Top DJ Entertainers And Wedding Professionals

Co-Author: David Petry (Owner of DJ Dave Productions)
Check out this new book. I am proud to be co-author and part of this amazing book along with 17 other leading DJ Entertainers from across the US. This book is a must have for anyone planning a wedding reception. Thanks to Mark Imperial for putting this project together over the last 9 months, this book is available at Amazon.

The Ultimate Wedding Reception

This tell-all book takes years of behind-the-scenes experience from top DJ Entertainers to show you what it really takes to create a terrific wedding reception. This book is not meant to be biased in any way, but will simply report the facts and let you decide what is important for your day. This book will cover many aspects of the wedding reception. This is not meant to be just from the entertainment’s perspective, although you will find where the entertainment fits as a catalyst for your celebration. There are many books, websites, and wedding magazines that choose to cover every aspect of the wedding from A to Z. Here we chose to go deep on one subject, which is the wedding reception, where I feel the information is lacking. This Book Is Like Having 2 Books in 1 In part one, we share the behind-the-scenes ingredients that go into a great reception. These won’t just be the common things you will read in generalist books. Instead, you’ll discover little-known secrets, facts, and unspoken truths. You may also be shocked when we reveal to you the “dark side” of the DJ Entertainer industry, which, quite frankly, some of the worst offenders hope you never hear. Over the years, we’ve heard so many wedding vendors complain about some of the things we will reveal, but until now no one’s had the guts to tell. The good news is that we’ll give you tons of great tips and things to look for and keep in mind while you plan your big day’s celebration finale. We’ll walk you past the big landmines, make you aware of some of the gotchas so you can avoid them, and keep you focused for success. You’ll get the seven essential truths about DJ Entertainers, including a hiring checklist. And once you hire your DJ Entertainer, we’ll share with you the biggest things to focus on so you can get the best performance of their career for YOUR reception! In part two, we’ll introduce to you 18 of the world’s leading DJ Entertainers. We have personally invited them to contribute tips, tricks, and secrets coming from their experiences in their part of the world. These DJ Entertainers have been invited because they have demonstrated their passion and commitment to serving their clients. You should look to these DJ Entertainer chapters for big ideas, inspirations, and themes. Some will share different, unexpected challenges they faced, and how they overcame them by thinking on their feet. You’ll find part two to be a refreshing way to round out the knowledge base of this book. Before this one, there has never been a book created that shares as many ideas and perspectives from top professionals for your benefit. Enjoy this book, and have a great time!

Choosing Your Perfect Wedding DJ

Guide To Choosing Your Perfect Wedding DJ

As a bride, one of the most important aspects of your wedding day is that you have the time of your life. This is also true for your guests. Looking back on your special day, you want each guest to say, “That wedding was awesome! I’ve never had so much fun!” As a DJ, I know that much of this falls on my shoulders. After you have decided on the venue, the dress bought and the food finalized, the music and entertainment is what truly dictates the atmosphere of the reception. This makes choosing your wedding DJ one of the most important decisions in the wedding planning process.

Top Four Things to Remember When Looking For a Wedding DJ:

  1. Meet with Multiple DJs– Interview a few, 3 to 5, DJs before making a decision. Make sure the DJ’s personality works with yours and is what you are looking for. An upbeat DJ is important to get the party started and to keep it going!
  2. Ask For Referrals– Ask your friends, wedding venues, co-workers and even reception halls for references and recommendations about local wedding DJs.
  3. Ask Questions– During your meeting with potential DJs, find out how extensive their music library and whether or not they will be the actual person deejaying the event. Some other important information to be sure to gather is if they are available for overtime, where they will set up their system, and if they would like to eat at the wedding. Do not forget to ask the DJ what attire will be for the reception, many will come in a tuxedo, but you do not want to chance it! The more information you gather, the more informed your final decision will be.
  4. Contract– Make sure you have a contract in writing detailing the finalized decisions you and your DJ made. Your wedding is an exceptionally significant day; you do not want to leave anything to chance.
