Thank You

 

JukeBox Music understands that hiring a professional DJ for your wedding is about more than just music. Of course a huge selection and variety of music is a must, but a professional DJ provides so much more! A DJ's ability to entertain your guests, make announcements and coordinate events with other vendors greatly influences the success of your wedding.


At JukeBox Music, our main focus is to ensure that your wedding unfolds exactly as you envisioned. We make ourselves available to you for unlimited and personal wedding planning; act as Master of Ceremonies, and coordinate activities with other vendors.  This assures that your wedding stays on schedule and your guests have a great time.  Furthermore, we have a variety of musical genres – ranging from 30’s swing to today’s top hits – all to make your reception FUN!

JukeBox Music is owned and operated by a recently married husband/wife team, so we understand how important a wedding is - not only to the Bride & Groom, but to all of the families and guests involved.  Your happiness and satisfaction are extremely important to us; and therefore, our number one priority. We will not settle for anything less than a perfect day for you to remember.


Ceremony Services

JukeBox Music is happy to offer complete wedding ceremony service, and feel that it represents an excellent value. For starters, you only have to deal with one person (one less meeting - yay!) for both the ceremony and reception entertainment.

Then there's the fact that you not only get all the music for the ceremony, but also a wireless lapel microphone for your officiant to wear, which means that all of your guests will hear the whole ceremony perfectly. And we include additional handheld wireless microphone(s) that can be used by any readers or vocalists/performers you may have.

Now - regarding the music: JukeBox Music will loan you a custom-made CD that has several different versions of the ceremony 'event' music ranging from the most traditional Wedding songs to alternative selections. The best part is that you get to choose which is best for you - or, do as many couples have and choose individual pieces from a few of them and create a ceremony that is uniquely your own!

And the best part? No extra cost: the price quote you are given will include this service, provided that your ceremony is at the same site as the reception!

Wedding Ceremony Tips
Wedding Reception Tips

  1. Probably the most important thing to keeping your reception on time is making sure the ceremony starts on time. The timeliness of your ceremony is directly related to your preparedness. Plan your day well in advance and allow yourself plenty of time of get dressed, take pictures, and get to your destination. And remember that your rehearsal dinner is more than just dinner, toasts and hugs. Make sure your Bridal Party and family understand the importance of attending the rehearsal dinner and rehearse the ceremony all the way through at least twice.


  2. Limit the time you spend taking pictures between the ceremony and reception to 30-45 minutes. Make arrangements with your photographer, and your Bridal Party, to have as many pictures taken as possible before the ceremony. Taking pictures of the Bride and Groom with their attendants, parents, siblings, etc. can save valuable time after the ceremony. Remember - your guests are waiting to see you!


  3. Have your Matron/Maid of Honor rehearse the bustling of your dress. It is also a good idea to have someone else, such as another Bridesmaid or your mother, know how to bustle your dress just in case the Matron/Maid of Honor is unavailable. Difficulty bustling a dress has been known to delay a reception by a half hour... that's valuable party time!


  4. If you are expecting more than 100 guests, ask your caterer if it's possible to have a double-sided buffet line or two buffet lines. This saves a tremendous amount of time getting all your guests through the buffet line.


  5. Talk to your Bridal Party and family prior to your wedding day to ensure they are aware of their various roles, such as receiving lines, introductions, toasts, dances, etc.� Also stress the importance of showing up on time and prepared.


  6. Make sure your tossing bouquet is readily available and remember to put on your garter prior to the garter toss so your new husband can retrieve it!

  1. Dim the lights when it's time for dancing. Soft lighting during dinner creates a more comfortable atmosphere. Dimming the lights after dinner will motivate your guests to dance. Determine the desired lighting levels for dinner and dancing when you meet with your reception facility's coordinator. Consider light levels that will compliment any candles you plan to use. Ask that your lighting preferences be included in your contract with the facility.


  2. Place your DJ next to the dance floor and avoid sharing facilities. Avoid seating guests between your DJ and the dance floor. Placing your DJ adjacent to the dance floor maximizes your DJ's ability to control the sound and interact with the dancers. Be wary of situations where the dance floor is in the next room or access is not convenient for your guests. Also, avoid facilities where you must share an area with restaurant diners or other parties. Such arrangements almost always generate requests to lower the volume, which will diminish the energy of your reception.


  3. Invest quality time in planning your Grand Entrance. The Grand Entrance sets the tone and establishes the energy for the entire reception. Work closely with your DJ and Catering Director to stage a Grand Entrance that reflects your style and personality. Decide who will participate, where they will assemble and in what order, where they will go after being introduced. Clarify pronunciation of names, determine appropriate introductions for blended families and, of course, select the perfect music.


  4. The First Dance - don't wait forever to do it and don't do it forever. One of the special moments of the reception is the bride and groom's first dance. Having your first dance after the grand entrance, or right after dinner, is a great way to start the party. Don't delay your first dance to visit with your guests. Doing so will deflate the energy of your reception. You've selected your favorite ballad, but that five-minute song may seem like an eternity both to you and your guests. Have your DJ fade out the song at a designated time if it lasts more than a few minutes. All of this applies as well to the newlyweds' dances with their parents.


  5. Don't try to select every song your DJ will play. Choose the song for your first dance and other songs for specific reception events. Tell your DJ what artists and styles of music to feature or avoid, but don't micro-manage your DJ's performance. A professional wedding DJ can 'read the crowd' and knows what to play and when to play it to keep the party going. More importantly, your DJ knows which requests clear the dance floor. You're paying for your DJ's knowledge and experience. Take advantage of it.


  6. Don't rule out the Macarena! Think twice before you reject those so-called 'cheesy' group dances like the Macarena, Chicken Dance and YMCA. These dances may be the only opportunity some of your guests will have to get on the dance floor and have some fun. You don't have to do the Hokey Pokey right after your first dance, but let your DJ keep all options open. These group dances are frequently requested by your guests and often create reception highlights and priceless photos.
