For

Written by Kristin Wilson, Founder of Orlando Wedding DJ Company, Our DJ Rocks.

Nearly all clients believe that entertainment is the determining factor in the success of their event. You will always be able to find a “good price,” the more important question should be, what is the value that you will receive? Remember, you only have one chance to do it right. Let me guess, you have never hired a Wedding DJ? We can help! Here are our 5 Tips for how to choose a Wedding DJ. 57


Photo by Sivan Photography

STYLE & PERSONALITY

Your DJ is going to help set the tone of the evening. That means that style and personality do matter. One thing you can do is instead of just getting a quote via email, meet with your DJ to go over your vibe, music styles and needs. You want to ensure that they have the right style and personality not only to match you and your fiancé, but also managing your reception. 58

COMMUNICATION & ARTICULATION

This might come as a surprise, but communication and articulation are extremely important. Once you find the right DJ you want to make sure that they can announce, communicate and articulate. Not only to your guests but also to your other vendors. For example, when it’s time for the cake cutting, it’s the DJ/MC’s responsibility to inform


the photographer and videographer so that they do not miss a moment on camera. It’s also part of our role to make sure the right people are in the room so that they don’t miss those special moments.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

It’s all about conveying energy, emotion and a positive experience. There are many ways a DJ will interact with your guests. From announcing that they join the newlyweds on the dance floor for a special dance to teaching the cupid shuffle. Music conveys love and happiness and your DJ/MC will convey the energy and emotion.

TAKE REQUESTS

Your DJ should be able to adjust to the crowd. From the list of songs and genres that you give her that you like to taking requests, it’s all about knowing when to the play the right song at the right time.

It’s also important to know what the must play songs are and what songs not to play. It will make your wedding day more memorable and personable when the DJ can play songs that you and your guests love to dance to. Remember it’s your wedding day, so be sure to let the DJ know if you do not want them to take requests.

MANAGE/DIRECT THE FLOW OF ACTIVITIES

DJs who understand the flow of activities and flow of music are able to build momentum and keep the evening flowing smoothly. For example, if the bride and groom are an hour late, you now only have 3 hours for your reception. Your DJ should be able to adapt and make changes to the flow of activities so that you and your guests do not feel rushed and still get to enjoy the evening over dinner and have time for dancing!

Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day. Whether it’s a small intimate get together, big glamorous affair, or a simple day with family and friends, looking your best is important. To us that means having gorgeous hair and skin. We’ve put together some great tips on how to prep for your special day. 61


SCHEDULE A BRIDAL TRIAL Bridal Trials are a must. The way you look on your wedding day is so important. You don’t want to risk trying a new hairstyle or hairstylist for the first time the day of your wedding. Bridal Trials allow you to decide exactly how you want to look on your wedding day.

62


STICK TO YOUR SKINCARE Routine If you have a skincare routine that works, stick to it. If you don’t have a skin care routine, start one months before your wedding to promote flawless skin for your big day. Drink lots of water, eat clean, start an exercise goal, and don’t skip your weekly masks. Avoid trying new facial treatments close to your wedding day in case of any allergic reactions. Beautiful skin is the canvas for beautiful makeup.

63


CHOOSING THE PERFECT HAIRSTYLE FOR YOU Your hairstyle on your wedding day should compliment you and your dress. Stay true to your style. If you never wear your hair all the way up, you may not like an up do. If you like the messy look, you may not go for the sleek style. If you have thin hair, extensions will make a huge difference whether you’re wearing your hair up or down. Plus adding hair accessories and floral pieces will always complete your bridal hairstyle. 64

BUILDING YOUR - How to have it all at your wedding -

Written by Alexis McNeely, Marketing Lead at Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals www.orlandoweddingandpartyrentals.com 66


We can all agree that Pinterest

has been a ground-breaking tool for wedding planning, but, with so much inspiration being added every day it can be hard to pin (pun intended) point what exactly your rental budget can handle. When starting to build your rental budget consider the details that are most important to you, as the essentials. Consult with your wedding coordinator to help create a strategy to build your rental budget. Figuring out what items are important to you will help in the long run when it comes to getting pricing & requesting quotes from rental companies. A tip from us is to create a wish list once you know your venue and have an idea of how many guests will be at your wedding.

Send that list to your preferred rental company. This allows you to know what your venue has and doesn’t have and knowing your guest count allows the rental company to inform you of any special discounts or packages associated with booking more items. Often times having a wedding planner or using the rental company that is in house at the venue will automatically save you money because they offer exclusive deals for working with their favorite vendor. 67


It’s your wedding and you want it to be magical while still reflecting your style. Mix and match your rental items not only for a personalized design but staying true to what items fit your budget. If you love rustic designs, but, it’s not in your budget for both a French country chair & farm table, consider 68

opting for one and tying in a chair or a table and linen that matches your color scheme and your love for rustic flare. On another note, if you want your entire venue draped but it’s not your #1 priority (maybe you prefer the upgraded chairs and dance floor first over that), try draping just behind


the sweetheart table and finding a speciality table to enhance the look. It’s a win-win! You’ll still have the draping, but it will be more cost effective. By finding the focal point, you can then figure out which parts of the room are most important to you. No matter what type of style you have, you will never go wrong with hiring professionals in your city. The more

you invest your time into finding those that really care, the better the wedding planning process will be. Rentals are just one portion of your checklist, but they make an impact with key elements and quality product. Choose quality over quantity. Search for what others have said about vendors in the area. Listen to your coordinator and venue manager. Your budget will thank you!

One of the moments I was MOST looking forward to at my wedding was getting to spend the time with all of my favorite ladies the morning of my wedding. I had my mom, my mother in law, my step daughters and pretty much all of the important ladies in my life with me that morning. We laughed, we shared stories and we cried a little (BEFORE THE MASCARA ONLY). I made a playlist to of songs while we enjoyed the day and sipped on champagne. 70

Now – I do have to admit that when I make my own personal playlist, I’m ALLL OVERRRR THE PLACE! I could go from old school to hip hop easily. So if you want my advice, just have fun with it! What type of music do you think you’d want to be played the morning of your wedding?

r a g i p l l h a y C FROM OUR EXPERT:

Christine with Carousel Atelier Calligraphy

72


It is not often in life when we get to plan an elegant affair like a wedding. I can only think of two instances when you get to mail out something so important that is requires two envelopes: my high school graduation announcements and my wedding invitations. While you are in the midst of planning your overall wedding vision, it can be easy to overlook the importance of your wedding invitations. Your invitations, along with all of your wedding stationery, are your guests’ introduction to your wedding. It is common to think that calligraphy is only meant for your envelope addresses, but I would like to share with you how the stationery trends are influencing wedding calligraphy throughout your stationery, what to expect when working with a calligrapher, and to share with you some creative calligraphy ideas to inspire your wedding day.

73


Wedding Stationery Trends:

Envelope liners will be joined this year with other luxury touches to your invitations. Wax seals, personalized crests, monograms, and belly band tags are the personalized touches that you can add to your suite to set them apart. Handwritten calligraphy wedding invitations will also be in demand this year. Watercolor will be here for another year, from simple watercolor washes, to beautiful floral details.

You can incorporate this as gold foiling or silver ink, as well as bronze and copper.

74


Working with a Calligrapher:

The timeline that you should begin the contracting process will depend on the capacity upon which you intend to include calligraphy into your wedding. If you are looking for a full wedding invitation design, it is best to reach out to your calligrapher at least 8-12 month ahead of your wedding date. It can take about seven months to go through the contract phase, design your suite, and handwrite out all your invitations. For envelope addressing, I would suggest having a contract in place with your calligrapher right after you order your initiations. Like all great vendors, the best calligraphers can be booked out and you don’t want to miss out (or delay mailing your invitations) in order to get the look you desire. Adding your calligrapher to your vendor team early also means that you can receive guidance and direction on the style and the paper thickness of your envelopes.

75


Once your invitations are sent off through the USPS, your work is not over yet! Now is the time to start looking forward to your wedding day stationery. If you will be including calligraphy into your ceremony, it works in your favor to begin working on those pieces when you are still a few months out. Items like custom calligraphy backdrops and calligraphy signs can take up to a month to create. By now, you might have already made the decision as to the type of reception you will be hosting, so you can focus on your guests’ experience with your reception. Their experience begins during the cocktail hour. It is when they will seek out their seat during dinner (or brunch). Items like name cards, escort cards, and seating charts can take about two weeks to complete. If you have been working with a calligrapher throughout your wedding planning journey, she may have already advised you to request your RSVP cards more than two weeks ahead of your wedding date. This is a great idea because that extra week gives you time to follow up with any missing replies and you can get your final numbers to your calligrapher, caterer, baker, etc.

76


Creative Ideas for Calligraphy:

One of the amazing things about calligraphy, is that the sky is truly the limit on where you can apply it. Unlike traditional printing, calligraphy can be incorporated in ways that fit with your personalities. Here are just a few creative ideas to get you started, but by no means is this exhaustive. Spot Calligraphy: Spot calligraphy is the best of both the calligraphy and digital worlds. You can get your invitations designed and printed, but leave off your names and another detail (like the venue name or the city of your ceremony). Then your calligrapher can hand write those details in so your guests will still be receiving beautiful works of art. Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Invitations: Since your bridal shower and bachelorette parties will be smaller affairs, this is a great way to incorporate calligraphy. Impress your girls with fancy invitations that work perfectly for high tea showers all the way to a night-on-thetown girls’ celebration.

77


Return Address Stamps & Wax Seals: Many calligraphers can custom design your return address in calligraphy and get it made into a return address stamp. You can also commission for your wedding monogram to be made into a wax seal using custom calligraphy. Day-Of Calligraphy: Why settle for just paper? Incorporate your escort cards (which let your guests know which table they are seated at) and name cards (letting your guests know where they are seated at the table) into your table-scapes. These can be on just about anything. I have created escort cards from live magnolia leaves and name cards on agate slices. Or if the escort and name cards are not your style, you can work with a calligrapher to create a seating chart – these can be as simple as a framed parchment, or dressed all the way up as a mirror. Thank You Cards: Thank you cards are a must for the classy bride that you are. Showing your appreciation to your friends and family in a beautiful card with “Thank You” in calligraphy on the front is one of my favorite ways to incorporate calligraphy.

78


Or you can use thank you cards as your escort cards. This takes a little bit of planning ahead of time, but you can incorporate calligraphy on the envelopes, for their names and table number, and include a sweet note to them inside the cards. Heritage Suite: If you have already sent out your invitations, or they were not the custom suites of your dreams, then a heritage suite can rescue you. A calligrapher can create one full wedding suite (the ones that I create include a beautiful invitation box so you can safely store it for years to come) which you can ask your photographer to use in your wedding photographs. These can also be a great one-year anniversary gift. Vows & Love Letters: These both would be great for a personal inclusion of calligraphy in your wedding day. You can commission for your vows to be written in calligraphy or the sweet love letter that will be delivered to your soon-to-be-spouse on your wedding morning. These also would be beautiful for your photographer to capture and are another great idea for your first anniversary gift. I hope that these tips and ideas help you while you plan your wedding stationery.

l a t n e l i R a t e R VS.

OUTLINING THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PURCHASING AND RENTING YOUR WEDDING DAY MENSWEAR

80


When planning a wedding, it is only natural to try and find the best deals in town to help you, your wedding party, and your guests save money! So when it comes to menswear, one of the first things couples try to decide on is whether they plan to purchase the ‘looks’ for the guys or rent everything. In the past renting has been the obvious and only answer to the couple wanting to look like a million bucks (while only spending a hundred or two). However, the new generation of money-savvy brides and grooms are starting to question this system and many are turning towards purchasing their menswear for the big day. While there’s nothing wrong with either option, there are many differences between renting versus purchasing, regardless of the formalwear company you select. So before making that decision, it’s important you know the general differences between purchasing and renting.

81


Pricing Generally speaking, the price range of rentals is much less than the retail options available. That being said, you can find a very reasonably priced retail suit that comes close to the price of a rental - you just have to be aware of what’s included with both options.

Sizing Typically, rental styles have a much greater size range than retail lines, so if your bridal party includes men of all sizes it’s important to consider the suit line you’re selecting before purchasing them. The last thing you want is to have half the guys in one style and the other half in a different style because the sizing from the original suit line was so limited. 82


What's the difference? Curious as to what traits define the two? Check out the differences below!

SUIT

• No satin on the lapel • Uncovered buttons • No satin stripe on the pants • Can come with a matching vest • Can also be worn with suspenders

TUX

• Satin on the lapel (can be a trim or full satin)

• Satin covered buttons • Satin stripe or bead on the pants • Can be worn with a vest, cummerbund or suspenders

83


Pieces

Like we mentioned with the price differences, a rental typically includes everything but the socks and underwear! From the coat, pants, and shirt to the button studs, cuff links, shoes, and accessories, the rental price includes it all. Retail suits normally come either with a coat and pants or with a coat, pants, and matching vest.

Timeline With most independent formalwear specialists, the majority of the rental inventory is in stock and ready to go. So renting a last minute tux or suit is not a problem. However, because of the alterations involved with a retail tux or suit, there is usually a longer timeline needed to get the order ready in time.

84


As we mentioned before, all the alterations are not included in the price of the retail suit or tux, and most of the time the pants come unhemmed. So at the very least, you’ll have to get the pants hemmed. On the other hand, rental prices include all the alterations - so your pant hem, coat sleeve, and coat button placement will be exactly where it needs to be to make you look your best!

Services

*While the differences pointed out here are pretty typical throughout the formalwear industry, there may be changes among various individual companies. We speak from our experience as Street Tuxedo - a local formalwear company in Middle Tennessee. 85

Ś u ŋo PLANNING

OUTDOOR EVENT

Are you considering an outdoor wedding ceremony and/or wedding reception? Some people assume that outdoor weddings are cheaper and easier. However, outdoor weddings are anything but simple! 89


Tent Selection

Photo by Images By Daniel Michael

First, select an area that has flat topography, access to electricity & water, and doesn’t flood when it rains for the main tent. Schedule a site visit with a rental company and measure the size and type of tent that your outdoor space can accommodate. Provide a separate prep tent for your caterer as well. All tents that you rent will need lighting.

90

Mother nature can be hot, cold, or just right – but you won’t know for sure until the week of the wedding. Don’t make the mistake of thinking a smaller a/c unit will work just as well as a larger one. The size of the a/c unit you need to reserve is proportionated to the size tent you have rented. Outdoor heaters run on fuel so make sure you have enough to sustain the desired temperature

throughout the event. Add side walls to your tent order if you reserve A/C or heat. Turn on the a/c or heaters early in the day so the area has time to adjust to the cooler or warmer temperature you desire. If you rent a commercial a/c unit you will likely need to rent a generator as well. If there is a nice breeze, you may ďŹ nd that the cross breeze may be

enough to keep your guests cool. Simply remove the sidewalls and let mother nature provide the balance. If you have winds more than 5-10mph, secure table decorations like table numbers, favors and candles. Make sure candles are located deep inside glass so they don’t blow out or start the table numbers on ďŹ re. 91

Under The Tent When ordering tables and chairs, keep in mind that you can comfortably seat 8-10 people at a 5’ round and 10-12 people at a 6’ round. If you want to use chiavari chairs, provide a flat surface (like a driveway or rented floor) as the floor. Otherwise chiavari chairs (like ladies’ heels) will sink into the ground. Use folding chairs, which have a wider base, under a tent where the ground is the floor. Don’t set tables until the day of the event – if you place linens the night before they will absorb moisture during the night and will feel damp in the morning. If you plan to have a DJ or band, ask about what their watt and amp needs are in case they need to provide their own generator. You will also need to provide a dance floor for guests. Reserve a 10x10 dance floor area per 100 guests. To avoid any violations, be aware of any noise ordinances that your city has that prohibit loud music after a certain time.

Outside The Tent Have you considered where guests will park their vehicles? You may use a plot of land located near the tent or on a street near your home. If you use your private home’s street, make sure that your neighbors or HOA are aware of your event and the additional cars it will bring to the community. 93


To make life easier, you can rent a valet service that will take care of parking guest vehicles off site. Bathroom trailers, especially if you have a septic system, may be the most important rental for the wedding day. Guests’ bathroom visits may be too much for a home’s septic system to handle, resulting in the outdoor area becoming flooded with an awful stench. Bathroom trailers have running water and air conditioning so guests can briefly cool off inside as well. Affordable port a pottys with flushing capabilities and running water are also available to rent. (Save the construction style port a potty for the next street fair, it isn’t ideal for a wedding.) Make sure that you provide adequate lighting and

signage so guests know where the restrooms are located. To prevent bugs, put tiki torches with citronella scent around the perimeter of the tent. You can also put citronella candles on the guest tables, or provide a variety of bug repellants, like Off! or Avon Skin So Soft, in a bathroom basket. At the end of the evening, make sure to put all garbage inside a garage or enclosed area. Otherwise, rodents will get into the trash during the night and leave a mess for you to clean up in the morning. Provide transportation, such as an Uber car or passenger van, at the end of the night for guests that may have consumed too many spirits.
