  Wedding Reception Music

Planning a wedding can turn into a long list of things to do. By choosing Southern Cali DJ's Service as your entertainment, we are happy to help plan and coordinate the event to ensure the entertainment is exactly what you had in mind. Our Disc Jockeys serve as Master of Ceremonies and Event Consultants. Contact us to shorten your "to do" list and make the planning more enjoyable.



Wedding Music

Every element of your wedding reception is important, and the music will certainly rank very high on this list. It sets the mood as guests arrive, it provides atmosphere during dinner, and after dinner the music allows for dancing and spices up events like the bouquet toss and cake cutting.

Before the music is played though, there is a person deciding what to play. This person must balance the musical wishes of the bride and groom with the changing mood of the guests, and all the while keep the schedule moving!

Some thoughts on scheduling.

Who's Responsible?
We feel that if you have a wedding planner, they will have the lead in scheduling. Otherwise we will help you set and manage the schedule. At the reception we will coordinate with your caterer, photographer and any other reception vendors as needed.

When to do the First Dance?
It's our experience that things start off really well when the Bride & Groom go into their First Dance right after their Grand Entrance. Followed by the Mother and Father dances the stage is set for a great night.

When to do the Toast?
We feel that this is best done before dinner. After dinner is okay but sometimes there is commotion from the wait staff and guests ready to stretch their legs.

Bouquet and Garter Toss
We usually do these together but plan them for later in the evening.

Cake Cutting
Sometimes guests view the cutting of cake as a sign of the evening being over so we try and plan for this later in the evening as well.

Anniversary Dance
This is a good way to get guests back onto the dance floor after the cake cutting.

Of course these are just our suggestions. We will work with you to develop a plan that you can call your own. After all -it is your day!
