Wedding Wish Tree

Thursday, April 29, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 10:52 AM

This is from a reception I just DJed at the Millard Social Hall. These trees were covered in wish cards that guests could fill out and drop in the box. Some guests even put money in the wish card envelopes. This was the first time I had ever seen wish cards and I thought it was a creative idea. For the Bride and Groom those wish cards will be fun to look at in 10 years.

Up-lighting effect

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 11:36 AM

Recently I have been experimenting with up-lighting at some of the weddings I have DJed. Here is some simple up-lighting I used behind the cake table. I thought it really made a difference. We have not gone full blown yet but a lot of DJ companies have been finding extra ways to make money and offering up-lighting around the reception venue is one of them. And why not? This effect is easy to do and really can have a dramatic appearance when placed properly.

Swiss Rolls Grooms Cake

Monday, April 26, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 10:02 AM

As silly as this sounds I am always very eager to see the Groom's cake every week at the receptions I DJ. Over the years I've seen some pretty creative stuff. Props to all the cake makers in Omaha who have managed to pull off some pretty impressive designs. Here's a cake from the Wedding I DJed on Saturday night. Can you guess what the grooms favorite snack is?

Bride vs. Groom dueling cakes

Saturday, April 24, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 1:59 PM

Just did a wedding Friday night where the Bride was a Husker fan and the Groom was a Hawkeye Fan. So why not have your cakes go to battle. So not only did they have their standard wedding cake but they also had a Hawkeye Grooms cake and a Huskers Bride cake. Now that's a lot of cake. Just for the record more people at the Husker cake than the Hawkeye cake. I don't really know what that means.

Photo Booth After Prom

Thursday, April 22, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 10:01 AM

We just recently provided our Photo Booth services for an after Prom party. What a riot! I am very happy to say that out of all the different things available to the students during the party that the Photo Booth was the most popular attraction. During the 5 hour event we never had a break in the action and over 300 photo strips were printed. Happy prom season everyone.

The choreographed Bride & Groom Dance

Friday, April 16, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 12:34 PM

The Bride & Groom dance is one of the most important parts of the reception. For the most part I always see a very typical slow dance between the bride and groom but every now and again I see a very tasteful dance they have choreographed. This always makes the dance a lot more enjoyable to watch and I always appreciate the effort the bride and groom have put in. In this photo from a recent reception the bride and groom had a beautifully coordinated waltz and it was a really unique and tasteful way for them to get things started on the dance floor.

It was a fun night and you could tell the kids really loved there coach. Congratulations to R.J. and Jami on their marriage and good luck.

Evidence of a good time...

Tuesday, April 13, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 10:11 AM

After last weeks reception was over I took this photo before the clean up started. Considering that there were only four guys sitting at this table I'm certain none of them were feeling any pain when they left. I just hope they had rides home. I not clear why but there is something very "manly" about the beer can pyramid.

Wedding Party Gifts

Monday, April 12, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 9:15 AM

I took this photo at the last reception I was the DJ for. Before anyone arrived I snapped this shot of the head table. I thought it was really cool how the bride and groom had gift packages on all of the chairs of their wedding party members. The contents of the bags included such things at beer steins for the groomsmen and comfortable shoes for the bridesmaids. This was a great reception and was held at Legacy Hall in Omaha.

Cute toasting glasses!

Thursday, April 1, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 2:51 PM

For those that read this blog you are aware that when I am out DJing weddings I am always looking for anything fun and interesting to blog about. At Friday nights wedding I noticed these Bride and Groom toasting glasses over by the cake. I found it very cute that the glasses were dressed in a Wedding Dress and Tux.

I actually thought he was going to do it!

, Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 2:48 PM

I wasn't sure what the groom was doing last Saturday when he approached the groom cake. I actually thought for a moment that he was going to bury his face in it but it turned out it was just for a quick pose. If you looked at any of my past blogs you will see I post grooms cake pictures from time to time. There are lots of wedding coming up this year so I hope to get lots more. When I see a grooms cake that is unique I will be sure to post it.
