Bernard from Party Sounds in Perth is a great guy.

Re: First Dance Song

Feels like home is pretty, my sister did it for her first dance and everyone was in tears. We're doing uncle kracker - you make me smile Feels like home is a great song. Another option is something by Lady Amntebellum, 'Just a Kiss' is really a very good first dance song and has a country feel. Eno...

Re: First Wedding Video

Whilst I realise you posted this here more for a bit of advertising than for advice, you did ask for opinions so I thought I throw some in anyway. For a first attempt at doing wedding video I think you have done a great job, you should be very happy with it. Producing a 5 minute video of the day see...

Re: Brisbane - Part 4

We checked out topiaries on the weekend. It was nice, but didn't have the right "feel" for us. We also looked at Glengariff and Oceanview. All very nice but not what we are looking for. He'd be happier with a paddock that has a view, some nice big trees, power and amenities. We know how w...

Re: Songs that make you want to dance

Age group, number of guests and whether the majority are family or friends all makes a difference. It can however be difficult to plan out a list of songs to play in order in advance, without knowing how they are going to react to them. Generally, if you have a good mix of younger and older guests, ...

Re: Anyone done a faux cake cut?

If your photographer will be taking room shots before the reception, but definitely won't be staying for the rest of the evening, you have absolutely nothing to lose by doing a mock cake cutting. It will take them a couple of minutes to do before guests have entered the room, and you will still have...

Re: Songs NOT to play?

To be fair there generally isn't a list of songs you shouldn't play. You are better off giving your DJ a list of songs you like and guidelines for what you would prefer. For example, let him know songs and genres for dinner music. If you don't Jazz for example, let your DJ know that, but also let th...

Re: Backyard wedding help!

I worked at a wedding that I feel had a similar look to what you are after. They had hired paper lanterns that hung from the marquee, which had light bulbs in them (no need for candles). They also got led tea lights and placed them in small white paper bags, sat them upright and used them to line pa...

Re: D.J. or Ipod?

What should a DJ cost. Several WC members have mentioned getting DJs for under $300, but in Sydney I have not been able to find anything under $650. Am I Iooking in the wrong places or is that the going rate? You probably won't find a professional full time DJ for under $650. Obviously this depends...

Re: DJ & MC confusion

There are a couple of ways to go in relation to DJ and MC. The first is obviously as you suggested, hiring a DJ who is also willing to MC. It is important to note that whilst most DJs state that they can 'MC', the majority are really just making announcements. Very straight down the line and imperso...

Re: D.J. or Ipod?

Picking a DJ is like any other part of organising a wedding, you generally get what you pay for. To be fair, any experienced DJ that is getting paid a reasonable amount of money for their services are going to play the songs you want them to play. If you don't want them to talk throughout the night,...

Re: Fiancé doesn't want a bridal dance - what to do?

Generally I find that the darker the room is, and the more people you get on the dancefloor, the easier it is. Whilst normally the bride and groom will dance for at least a minute by themselves before everyone joins them, theres no reason you cant have your bridal party and immediate family start th...

Re: Has anyone got quotes without saying the W word??

Well no offence to any suppliers but if I were paying for a service, be it a 21st or a wedding, I would expect the best results, no matter what the occasion. I just don't see how a florist or whoever can charge varying amounts for the same products. If suppliers were that worried about their reputa...

Re: Has anyone got quotes without saying the W word??

I feel that it is important to remember that the work your suppliers do, or the goods they provide, are a representation of their company, and as such they may feel upset if misled about the purpose for which their services would be used. When people book suppliers for a party (for example), they ha...
