You Don't Have To Spend A Fortune On Entertainment

Welcome to my blog. My name is John Maxwell. During the great recession, a lot of my friends found themselves struggling to pay the bills. The idea of spending money on entertainment became unthinkable. But there was a serious consequence to this. My friends saw less of each other. As a result, I went journey to find the most inexpensive or free ways of entertaining friends while still having a great time. Even though the great recession has long since passed, I believe that much of what I learned can still be useful. You can never save enough money on entertainment.

Are You Planning The Entertainment For Your Daughter's Wedding Reception?

If your daughter is getting married in the near future, you are probably very excited about her beginning a new life with the man she loves. It's also very likely that you feel swamped with everything you want to do to make her wedding one that she will remember forever as one of the most beautiful days in her life. In addition, you surely want her wedding reception one that will be enjoyed by the bride and groom and by all of those who attend the event. From arranging for a wedding DJ to planning other fun activities, here are some ideas that might help you.

The Wedding DJ

If you want dancing at your daughter's wedding, consider arranging for a wedding DJ to be in charge of the music. Find a DJ who has done wedding parties in the past. The great thing about hiring a DJ is that he or she will set up all of the equipment that is needed, including the sound system and lighting that will add pizzazz to the event.

There will probably be people of all ages at your daughter's wedding reception, won't there? If that's the case, you'll more than likely want dance music that will appeal both to the younger set and to people like grandparents who will be thrilled to dance to the oldies. Think of requesting music by people like Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, whose music is popular with many people, no matter their ages. And, of course, you'll want to tell the DJ the newlyweds' favorite song so that it can be played especially for them.

Other Activities

Of course, if you are having a DJ for dancing, you don't need to add very much more to the entertainment. However, you might want to give the DJ a short break by providing some additional fun for those who attend the wedding reception. For example, it might be a lot of fun to ask certain couples, maybe grandparents on both sides of the family, to tell about their own wedding traditions. And, of course, it would also be fun for those who attend the wedding reception to learn more about how the bride and groom met and fell in love. 

Think of having the bride and groom cut their wedding cake soon after the reception has started. That way, if anybody needs to leave early, they will have had the fun of watching the cutting of the cake, and they can eat it, too.
