Helpful Hint!!!!!

Wherever you are is where they will be!  If you are on the dancefloor, your guests will be too!  Try not to go outside and smoke.  Make sure your photographer does not steal you from your party.  Have someone else get your drinks.  The day of your wedding you are a "people magnet".  Guide your entourage to the dancefloor and like LMFAO say "wiggle wiggle wiggle".  It will make your guests way more danceable.  They are at your wedding because they want to be with you after all.

Now Pick up the phone for more helpful hints and book one of the most requested DJ's in Chicago.

Kids at your wedding?

What is it about a ceremony that makes babies cry?  They are so adorable...until they are balling and fidgeting during your nuptuals.  At the reception it is alot easier to forget about kids but at a ceremony they will let you know they are there. 
It is completely acceptable for you to make at the very least your ceremony just for adults.  By the way, how come that parent never takes the kid outside?

What is a fair price?

Take a look at other companies in your area.  The price of a DJ is very regional.  Just ask people in Nebraska compared to New York.  Throw out the most expensive and the most inexpensive for similar services.  The most expensive, if they have nothing to truly show for the added cost and the least expensive because of the worrying you will do leading up to your wedding to see if they are really trustworthy.  Then make your decision based on who makes you feel the most comfortable and matches your requirements and desires for your wedding.

Happy wedding planning!

To smash or not smash...

Above is a picture of Samantha and Kevin Johnson as they share their wedding cake January 15, 2012 at Strawberry Creek Golf Club.  Eventually they did frost each others face. But beware!  Make sure you really know your spouse if you do.  I have seen it lead to a couples first argument as husband and wife.
Post here your thoughts on whether or not you would....

Getting married in Chicago?

Feel secure with the entertainment for your wedding when you choose the company that was the choice for the publisher of Chicago Style Weddings, Drew Walker of US99, Sherman of Q101, Joanne Genette of Kiss FM and Engaging Events by Ali!

Garter Removal...with dance and back up singers!

Here is one of our grooms that used "Business Time" by Flight of the Conchords to remove the garter to.  Pardon the sound but the dance is classic!

Fun Times DJ WOO, People dancing WOO, Great Party WOO!

We recently had a very Cubs themed wedding.  The couple even had Ronnie Woo Woo show up and give a speech.  Making your wedding special and unique to who are is the goal!  Your wedding will be more memorable and fun.  Your guests should easily see that your wedding is a true reflection of you as a couple.  One way is to hire a wedding coordinator who can bring it all together like Ali Phillips from Engaging Events by Ali.  She and her staff will help you create the perfect wedding reception...for YOU! 
Another way is to book Fun Times DJ.  They have a copywritten wedding questionnaire that you need to see before you book with anyone else.
As Ali Phillips says..."Happy Wedding Planning!"
