Musical TIDBITS... {photos via {.S.T.U.F.F.}::special Thanx}

~~~ Use music to further the theme or location of your wedding. For example:
** Island location... try Steel drums or a Reggae band
** Country setting...try Bluegrass of folk band
** City / Urban venue...think Jazz band
** for something more unique try these....Barbershop Quartet, Mariachi Band,
Church Choir, High School Band + Choir, University marching band. The list
is endless. What are some of your ideas for carrying out your theme through
music? Share your ideas via comments.
~~~ Have you thought of...
... the many non-musical ways to entertain your invited guests. Whether your guests are taking pictures of themselves in a photo booth or filming/photographing you and/or other guests with disposeable camera that has been left each place setting {as a favor}
... sleight-of-hand magicians/illusionists, fortune tellers,tarot card readers and dance instructor can also provide a great way to get you guests involved.
The important thing to keep in mind when having a non-musical reception is that, guests who can make their own fun, make a party more entertaining. So be certain to thoroughly think through the guest list and make certain that every invited guest could be the life of the party on their merit!
~~~About the 'Tip Thing'
...should you decide to tip your DJ and/or Band, remember that gratuity should be given, in cash, at the end of the evening. Set aside the money beforehand and designate your planner to be in charge of distributing the funds. The recommended tip amount is fifteen percent, minimally {not to exceed one hundred fifty dollars per person}
~~~About the 'Dancing Thing'...here's the secret...
~~~To assure that your guests have a great time at your reception, note that guests follow your lead. If the two of you keep dancing, your Guests will too!!!
