8 Tips to Discovering the Best DJ for Your Wedding

Music is very important to any event, such as a wedding, as it sets the mood for the type of occasion you are hosting: will it be a celebration with people dancing or a more solemn situation? Choose appropriately.

wedding

Along with refreshments, music can make or break your event so it is important to hire the correct people.

Choose the Best Shoes to Complement Your Wedding Dress

For a celebration, a DJ will be a great option and I'll walk you through what to look for and what questions to ask to find the best fit for you.

First and foremost, check the budget for your event and make sure you have a price range you are comfortable with. This can help narrow down the pool that you must sift through to get to the best match for your event. However, try to keep in mind that the cheapest you can find is not always the best. Hiring an amateur DJ can cost your event dearly.

Let's get to it and go through some questions you should ask your potential DJs:

  1. Is this his/her full-time job?
  • You need to know if the DJ is a professional who has made a career out of it, or if it is just a hobby. You want to make sure that your DJ is an experienced performer that can read the crowd and set the mood.
  1. How does he/she plan music for each client?
  • It is important to know that your DJ has a system to customize each experience. The DJ should let you know if he/she needs a master list in advance and should be attentive to your requests for songs that must and must not be played.
  1. Can he/she provide a sample of blending and mixing music? Or, does he/she have a website where you can listen to one?
  • Mixing and blending music is an acquired skill that comes from experience. When done by a professional, you will hardly notice it. Many professional DJs have a website to provide easy access to their portfolio and music samples. If he/she does not have an online portfolio, you can ask for a demo before you commit to a contract.
  1. What kind of equipment does he/she use?
  • Hopefully your DJ candidate will not respond with laptop and that he/she has backup equipment. There is equipment that is industry standard and you can check out some examples: i. Turntable ii. Controller iii. DJ Headphones iv. Mixer (if software does not have this capability) v. Speakers
  1. Does your DJ have a contract?
  • Your DJ should have a contract specifying what the his/her fee includes: How many hours are included in the fee? Who will be doing the setup? What equipment will he/she be providing and what would he/she need from the venue? A pro will definitely want to know the specifications of the venue so he/she can know what setup might look like and what might need some adjustment.
  1. Does he/she have a backup DJ and plan in case of emergency?
  • In case of emergencies, your DJ should have a backup for your event. If the backup DJ is not present, ask to meet him/her to make sure it is another pro and not a last-minute amateur. Your DJ should also have a plan in case something goes wrong during the event, you never know when an amp might blow out!
  1. Does he/she have liability insurance?
  • You want to make sure everyone will be safe in case of any equipment malfunctions or accidents. A professional will show you their liability insurance and answer any questions you might have about coverage.
  1. What does your DJ wear while performing for your type of event?
  • Might sound silly, but you want to make sure he/she will look professional for event. Your DJ might even have options for you to choose from (might be a tux, slacks and a nice shirt or a dress).

Tips to Assist You in Choosing a Wedding Color Scheme

Armed with these questions, you should be able to at least weed out the amateur DJs. The rest will mostly be based on your own taste and how you feel the DJ will fit in with your event. It sounds like a lot of information but it will definitely pay off to have the right fit!

Choose the Best Shoes to Complement Your Wedding Dress

Your wedding dress is such a big part of your big day!

wedding dress

You will be beautifully adorned within a gown that you carefully chose for such a special day. From slim silhouettes to elegant ballgowns, there are certainly many styles to choose from, all of which showcase their own, unique appeal.

Tips to Assist You in Choosing a Wedding Color Scheme

However, even if you have a stunning wedding dress, is it important to remember that other details will also create your ensemble, such as your shoes.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we believe that every wedding dress should be complemented by a stunning pair of shoes! That’s why we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing yours. Are you interested in discovering what these tips are? If so, continue reading for some great insight:

  • Short Dresses. If you have chosen a short wedding dress or one that shows your shoes, you should consider showcasing powerful heels! This is a great opportunity for you to highlight your “something blue” and rock a bold hue for your big day. Or, you can choose a pair with unique, detailed elements, such as rhinestones or sparkles.
  • Mermaid Gowns. A mermaid wedding dress presents such an elegant appearance. The ideal heel to company such a unique gown would be one that showcases straps. Mermaid gowns will highlight your curves, providing you with the opportunity to represent a sexy strappy shoe, or even an embellished peep toe. These shoes would also be ideal for sheath or column gowns.
  • Consider Your Fabric and Setting. Choosing a gorgeous shoe could be an easy task. However, it is important that you keep other factors in mind. If you are marrying outdoors in the grass or among the sand, heels can be a treacherous choice. Or, if you have chosen a lace wedding dress or one with very delicate fabric, be mindful of choosing shoes with embellishments, as your gown could snag on them and rip.

How to Properly Plan an Engagement Party

The right shoes will have your wedding ensemble looking beautifully complete! These are just a few tips to assist you in choosing yours. If you are also ready to choose your Los Angeles, California wedding planner, please contact us here at Rose Petal Events.

Tips to Assist You in Choosing a Wedding Color Scheme

One of the first tasks to do as you begin planning your big day will be to choose a wedding color scheme.

The colors you choose will be the staple for each element of your décor, and should be carefully utilized to create a beautiful, cohesive appearance.

How to Properly Plan an Engagement Party

However, with so many hues that offer lovely color to the world, how do you go about choosing just a couple to be your wedding colors?

Here at Rose Petal Events, we believe that every wedding should showcase beautiful colors! That’s why we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing your wedding color scheme. Would you like to discover what these tips are? If so, continue reading to gain some knowledge:

  • Consider the season. The season in which you plan to tie the knot can pose as wonderful inspiration for your wedding colors. If you plan to wed in Spring or Summer, consider vibrant colors or pastels, such as yellows or pinks. Or, if you are planning a Fall or Winter wedding, deep hues such as reds, greens, and creams, would be most fitting.
  • Consider the setting. Your wedding color scheme should complement the setting in which your wedding will take place. If you have chosen a venue that showcases an all-white appearance, choosing white as your color will cause all of your décor to blend together, which wouldn’t be ideal. You will want your décor to stand out, creating a pop of beautiful color throughout your space.
  • Consider the colors. There are so many beautiful colors in the world. So, we understand that it could be a difficult task to just choose a select few for your big day. When choosing your colors, it would be ideal to only choose two, as more colors could create a cluttered appearance. In addition, pairing lighter and darker colors will contrast one another beautifully.

Unique Ways in Which You Can Customize Your Wedding Décor

With the right colors, your wedding will surely showcase a beautiful appearance. These are just a few tips to assist you in choosing yours. If you are also ready to hire your Los Angeles, California wedding planner, please contact us here at Rose Petal Events. We would be grateful to be your wedding planner in Los Angeles.

However, are you aware of some ways in which you can customize your own big day?

If you would like to discover how you can customize your wedding decor, please feel free to continue reading, as Rose Petal Events has gathered some inspiration for you:

  • Cake topper. Your wedding cake will be such a highlight within your reception. Guests will come anticipating some sweet tiers of sugary goodness. While the inside will of course be scrumptious, you will want to ensure that the outside presents a lovely appearance. You can create a customized cake topper that is unique to you and your big day. Consider your initials or your last name created out of metal. Or, even showcase a picture or monogram.
  • Napkins. Everyone uses napkins! However, plain white napkins will showcase very little pizzazz among your tables. Instead, engrave yours with your names and wedding date, and even symbols, such as hearts, to add some flair to your tabletops.
  • Ceremony fans. If you have chosen to have an outdoor wedding, heat may pose as an issue. Providing fans is a great way for your guests to keep cool. You can get creative with the development of yours by printing your wedding program among them. This way, your guests will get an outline of your big day, while also staying cool in the heat.

Your wedding cake is such an important part of your big day!

Scrumptious flavors and delectable fillings will all comprise your big day sweet treat, as it stands towering tall for your cake-cutting ceremony. However, while the inside of your cake will of course be delicious, you will want to ensure that the outside is just as exciting.

There are so many ways to decorate your wedding cake. But, have you considered adorning yours with flowers?

Here at Rose Petal Events, we believe that every wedding cake should be gorgeous! That’s why we have gathered some ways in which you can decorate yours with flowers. If you are interested in learning what these ways are, be sure to read on to discover them:

  • Cascade your blooms. Your wedding cake will most likely have a lot of area to cover! However, instead of overpowering it with trinkets and a million little details, consider developing a cascading appearance with your flowers. Create a trail of blooms that flows from the top of your cake to the bottom, for an elegant appearance. In addition, you can choose different types of flowers, sizes, and colors, to showcase some dimension and diversity.
  • Top your cake. Traditionally, wedding cakes are topped with plastic bride and groom figurines.

How to Choose the Members of Your Bridal Party

Your bridal party will consist of many bridesmaids and groomsmen.

bridal party

The people who comprise your bridal party will be your closest friends and family members, and should be chosen with care. Not only will they stand beside you on your big day, as you vow your love to your partner, but they will also be there to assist you throughout your entire wedding planning process.

There may be many people who you would like to choose to join you as you marry your soulmate. However, are you aware of how you should go about choosing them?

Here at Rose Petal Events, we understand that each member of your bridal party has an important role to fulfill. That’s why we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing yours. If you would like to know what these tips are, feel free to continue reading to learn more:

  • How many. First off, you will want to determine how many bridesmaids and groomsmen you would like to have. Smaller weddings typically have smaller bridal parties, and vice versa for larger events. Also, it is said that your bridal party should consist of no more than ten members. However, it is your big day, and you are free to have as many members as you would like.
  • Don’t feel guilty. Your wedding day is a day for you and your partner. It is all about you, and you should do whatever makes you happy. Therefore, don’t feel obligated to ask anyone to be a part of your bridal party out of guilt. If you were a part of someone else’s wedding, that doesn’t mean that they must be a part of yours.
  • Deciding. Choosing people to stand beside you on your big day isn’t always an easy task, especially if you have many friends. Narrow down your options to your closest relatives, such as siblings, and friends that you feel you have the best bond with. From there, you will then need to determine who should be your Maid of Honor and Best Man. However, if you are at a loss as to who you should choose, know that these titles don’t have to be fulfilled, as everyone can just remain a member of the bridal party.

You will, of course, only want to choose the people who are closest to you to comprise your bridal party. These are just a few tips to assist you in doing so.

What Your Bridesmaids Are Really Thinking About Your Wedding

Your bridesmaids are a big part of your wedding festivities!

They will assist you throughout your wedding planning, throw you a celebratory bachelorette party, and ensure that you are entirely happy and catered to on your big day.

Follow Rose Petal Events on Instagram

However, are you aware of some thoughts that may cross your bridesmaid’s minds when it comes to your wedding?

We believe that every member of your wedding should be comfortable! That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some things that your bridesmaids may be thinking, to help you ensure that they are comfortable. If you would like to learn what these things are, be sure to continue reading for some insight:

  • Am I supposed to pay for my dress? Leaving your bridesmaids in the dark about finances associated with your wedding is not ideal. You will have many ladies who will all need dresses, and it is important that you make them aware of if you will be covering the costs, or if it will fall onto their shoulders. This way, there are no surprises, and everyone will be on the same page.
  • Do I have to prepare a speech? Most often, the Maid of Honor is the one to give a speech on the big day. However, sometimes the couple would like the bridal party too as well. Or, maybe the bridesmaids would like to. Discussing and planning for speeches ahead of time will ensure that your ladies will know what to expect, and not be left wondering if they are supposed to provide a speech or not.
  • I don’t know any of the other ladies… You may have some bridesmaids who do not know one another. Sometimes, ladies are shy, or could be a tad bit uncomfortable around others that they aren’t familiar with. While the bachelorette party poses as a great way for your ladies to get to know one another, you may want to also consider having them all join you for lunch to meet and mingle before the big day.

Creative Ways to Propose to Your Bridesmaids

Your bridesmaids are truly special to you! So, you certainly want to ensure that they are comfortable on your big day, and with these tips, you can. Here at Rose Petal Events, as a Los Angeles wedding planner, we would be honored to assist you in creating your big day. Please contact us today to begin your Los Angeles, California wedding planning.

  • Talk it out. Communication is so important when it comes to planning a wedding. Not only are you trying to ensure that each of your priorities are met, but those of your partner’s as well. It is completely normal to have your own opinions. However, it poses as making decisions a bit more difficult. If you can talk through your options and weigh out the pros and cons for each, you can discover a middle ground and come to a decision.
  • Be at ease. Having a disagreement with your partner can become frustrating. When things start getting tense, it is important that you take a breather to keep yourself at ease. After you have calmed down, return to the conversation with a positive outlook. A bad attitude certainly won’t assist you with your planning, so don’t continue on until you are both level-headed.
  • Compromise. You and your partner will each have aspects of your wedding that you find to be incredibly important. If you can compromise with one another, that would be ideal. For example, you may have your heart set on certain flowers, while your partner may just adore a certain flavor of cake. If you can choose the flowers and allow them to choose the cake flavor, it will be a win-win for both of you.

To keep your wedding guests happy, consider creating phone charging stations, equipped with both Android and iPhone chargers, so no moment will have to go uncaptured.
  • Who doesn’t love a great drink? You may be serving alcohol at your wedding, but are you sure that what you will be offering will be liked by your guests? An open bar is a great way to ensure that each guest can get a drink that they prefer. Not only will your wedding guests enjoy your open bar, but the drinks will loosen them up for the dance floor!
  • Make sure the temperature is just right. There is nothing worse than being within a space that is either too hot or too cold. It is important to make sure that your venue is at just the right temperature. If you are having an outdoor wedding, consider heating lamps in the Winter or Fans in the Summer. A comfortable environment will create a pleasant experience.
