He has finally proposed and now you have to get to the phone to call Mom and other family members. You've waited for this day and now that it's arrived, what do you do next?
First, of course, you have to set a date. Once you have the date set, you will need a location for the ceremony and then the reception. Next you will need to decide on your entertainment, since it can make or break the whole event. Will you need a harpist, string quartet, or will a DJ provide the music for your ceremony as well as your reception.
Lenny Fritts’ Touch of Class DJ’s will and can provide music for both. We will also help you find and choose the music for the wedding ceremony and then the music for your wedding reception. We’ve performed at thousands of weddings, making each one special and unique for each couple.
With our Ceremony / Reception Planner which is online, we will help you plan and coordinate the whole day. The only thing that we want you to worry about is walking down the isle, since we will handle the rest for you. Also check out our Music list.
Contact Us today to see if we are available for your wedding reception.
The Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony typically consists of 4 -5 songs. We can play Pre-ceremony music while the guests are arriving and being seated. Then comes the music for the seating of the grandparents, mother of the groom, then the mother of the bride. Once she is seated the officiant and the groom will make their entrance with the best man. The next song would be for the bridesmaids and the groomsmen, leading up to the maid (matron )of honor.
Following them should be the ring bearer and then the flower girl(s). Now it’s time for your grand entrance. Everyone stands as you are presented to the congregation. You and your escort(s)make your way down the isle. Vows are communicated and then you and your new spouse will be presented to the gathering. As one more beautiful song plays, you and husband(wife) begin to leave.
The Wedding Reception
The reception generally starts once the ceremony is concluded, with the first thing on the agenda being the cocktail hour. Your guests will drink and snack on a few items while you finish taking pictures. Depending on what you ask the photographer to shoot it generally takes about 30 -50 minutes. Once you have arrived at the reception location we will line you up and do the formal introductions of the bridal party. From here on out is where things can change depending on what the Bride and Groom would like to happen.
Do you need to worry about each phase of the reception? Not with Lenny Fritts Touch of Class DJ team.
We will set everything up and execute it so all you have to do is eat, dance and enjoy your guests and your event. We want you to feel like a guest at your our reception.
