Reception Tip #3 – Prioritize

Chances are your wedding reception is the biggest most expensive party you will ever throw. By definition you will be entertaining all of the most important people in your life. Decide what is most important to you about this party. Is it the decorations? Is it the food? Is it the fun? Once you have decided what your priorities are, focus your attention and money on that one thing first. Then if you have to cut your budget in other areas at least you are not cutting what is most important to you.

Our services at Hey! Mr. DJ Entertainment are not cheap but we are a great value. If your priority is food and you want your reception to revolve around your guests enjoying different foods and flavors then maybe we are not in your budget. If you need a 40 foot stretch hummer to ride from the church to the reception and would prefer to spend more on that and save on your entertainment then maybe we are not right for you.

However, If you want your guests to say things like “Best reception ever”, “Other receptions have paled in comparison”, “We had so much fun” then maybe we are for you. It’s important to understand that like all limos are not the same and all chef’s are not the same all DJs and MCs are not the same either. Choose wisely if entertainment is a priority for you.

Here is the prefect example.

The above video was shot in September of 2007 at one of the nicer venues in Cincinnati. Both parties started at 8:00. I remember being a little jealous of the DJ who was hired for the other party because the room was decorated so wonderfully. It was just gorgeous. At 11:30 I went to take a look at how their party was going. Sadly it was not going. What if they had spent less on centerpieces and a little more on entertainment? There are no second chances in this business.
