Guest List & Creative Invitations
​Choosing who is going to be by your side on your wedding day is very important, and not as easy as you may think.

Keep it simple

Include a photo of the two of you

Beautiful Venue & Location

stability
good reputation.
provide a variety of music genres
are fun, professional, and entertaining
will have your guests on the dance floor all night long
It is a good idea to see a band live before you book them for your wedding.

The Perfect Playlist
​On your wedding day you will want the dance floor to be packed all night long. That is why creating the "perfect playlist" is just as important as picking the right band. Its so embarrassing that the DJ may silence the music in 5 mins time searching for a song.

Delicious Desserts
​Stand out and try something new! Traditional wedding cakes are good, but have you ever been to a wedding that serves macaroons?! What people eat at all weddings should not be a culture. Don't copy all things try to be different

Post-Party Snacks
​If you want your wedding to stand out from the rest, switch it up and bring out some yummy snacks towards the end of your reception. This idea is unique and the possibilities are endless.
