You said "yes"... Now what? March 28, 2016
You have made it to that beautiful moment in your relationship. It’s the stepping stone to your future – the proposal. You said ‘Yes!’ and the two of you have experienced a flurry of emotions ever since.
Now you get to plan the wedding! It is exciting but can be overwhelming as well. There is a lot to think about: caterers, venues, the guest list, the DJ, the honeymoon and the list goes on. When there is so much to think about, sometimes it is easy to lose track of - or even sacrifice - what is most important to the two of you on your big day.
Here is a tip to help you stay on track during those initial planning stages:
Our DJs at Sounds Unlimited Inc. have seen all sorts of weddings in various styles and atmospheres. One thing we always ask our clients is this: “What is the most important thing to you on your day?” It is surprising how many couples struggle with that question because they are already so deep in the planning process, or are trying to please everyone else.
Before you start looking at venues and calling caterers, the two of you need to sit down and list your priorities and then focus your budget and energy accordingly. For example: If you and your finance are foodies and you want food to be the highlight of your night, but you don’t care about having a photographer or how fancy the decorations are, then you should focus your budget on catering. Then, you need to find a catering company that can deliver the meal you are looking for. This will help you narrow down your list of to do's before you start planning!
Use the same process with all aspects of your day – more specifically the music. If you are not big dancers and are looking to visit with your guests all evening, then you might consider a different option for music at the reception than if you wanted a dance. You also need to ask yourselves if your guests are big dancers and whether that will affect your decision to hire a band or a DJ. Or maybe you want custom music during your ceremony. Our team knows weddings and we know how to deliver what you want for your day.
Whether you want elegant cocktail music playing softly in the background, or the latest hits and a dance floor, we can match our services to your needs. Check out our Music Library!

Remember to keep your focus on your priorities and find the company that can deliver what you are looking for!
