I’m seeing two Wedding Entertainment Trends for 2018.
1. Brides are wanting more real DJ mixing skills with a specific music selection
2. Brides are more busy than ever
Wedding Entertainment Trends for 2018
1. What’s exciting about brides wanting real DJ mixing skills with a specific music selection is that they are appreciating the mixing experience that helps keep guests on the dance floor.
Their song selections reflect that in the unique music they know will keep their particular demographic dancing.
Here’s an example: A recent bride knew that she wanted to be on the dance floor for every song, all night long.
She picked songs that she knew her guests would like. And then did something interesting for her songs.
For the songs that she liked she searched YouTube for remixes that perhaps people hadn’t heard.
Needless to say it was a thrill for me, because I do the same thing using my professional DJ sources. For her, she was on the dance floor all night long.
2. The other trend I’m seeing is that brides are busier than ever.
Brides have always been busy. Planning a wedding is extremely extracurricular, isn’t it? That’s not to say brides aren’t great at prioritizing.
They know what they want and are putting together wonderful celebrations. But there’s only so much time, and because of that they sometimes feel like their missing something.
Here’s an example: A recent bride wanted to do custom bio intros for her wedding party. It’s a fun thing to honor their weddingparty people. It allows the guests to get know these VIPs in a unique way.
But as the weeks approached this particular bride and her fiancé just couldn’t find the time to write all the things they wanted about the bridal party.
What excites me about this trend is that I know we have to step up being there for our clients.
We do that by caring & understanding what they’re going through. And by offering an option to make it easier. In her case, because she really wanted to get this done, we had each bridal party member answer a few questions about themselves. I scripted those answers and delivered a great grand entrance for them.
