Bachelorette Boudoir Parties!

We have decided to offer bachelorette boudoir parties, or just a day with the girls.  We will provide a private space, food, and a hair and make-up artist (optional).  You, the bridesmaids, and Bride will enjoy a day of pampering and fun. And while we can’t legally serve alcohol, you’re welcome to bring wine and champagne to enjoy with your friends.

Of course, after your boudoir party, you’ll still be looking fabulous.  So why not take advantage of this opportunity and take a girls night on the town? 

We are more than willing to travel for this event. So, if you are looking to spend the weekend in KC, STL, Iowa City, wherever  We will find a place for this event. We won't book the typical hotel room but a house, loft, condo, vacation home, something. We will get a nice big space for everyone to have fun in and enough room to take some amazing photos. 

So, this is the time for you girls kick back.  It’s time to relax, tell stories -yes, those embarrassing tales of high school, broken hearts, first crushes, date disasters and talk about big dreams.  The future is so brilliant, so wide, and bright.  You’re among friends, the best of friends, and this night will be one for the books.

So please contact us by FB, Email, Phone or any other way for more details if you are interested.

Wedding DJ Info

A wedding can be one of the most important events of your life. From the flowers, to the dress and onto the reception, you want everything to be perfect. Your choice of music for the reception can make or break the whole wedding. That being said, how can you choose the right music and the right wedding DJ at a price that can fit your budget?

Wedding DJs can be found many ways. Often, they are found in the local phone book or have advertisements in wedding planning circulars. Some DJ’s will set up booths at wedding expos or have websites. Sometimes, you hear about a DJ by word of mouth. That’s all great, but how can you tell if a DJ is going to be worth your time and consideration? The first thing to look for in a DJ is professionalism. Chances are you will not be doing yourself a favor if you hire your niece’s boyfriend to DJ your wedding unless he has experience. A professional DJ will have up to date technology and equipment. He will have a professional appearance, including the appropriate clothing and grooming that fits the style of your wedding. If you want to have a 1970’s theme, the DJ should come equipped with bell bottoms and be ready to play a wedding disco . Part of a DJ’s professionalism is being open to whatever kind of music the bride and groom choose. If the bride and groom love country but the DJ is into hardcore death metal, the DJ should be happy and ready to play the selections of the soon to be newlyweds. Another part of the flexibility of DJ’s should be the ability to play a wide variety of songs upon request. With modern computer technology, songs are available almost immediately. If 200 rowdy guests are screaming for the chicken dance, a good DJ should be able to oblige.

Besides playing music, a good wedding DJ should be able to accommodate and facilitate wedding traditions such as the first dance for the bride and groom, the dollar dance, the garter and bouquet toss or whatever the bride and groom request. They should also be able to spend a good amount of time with their equipment without taking too many breaks, including taking advantage of the open bar or chain smoking.

With all the requirements for good wedding entertainment , how do you check out what a DJ does and how he does it? Some DJ’s play at local bars for special events that are open to the public. If you have a chance, go see how the DJ deals with hordes of drunken people. If you happen to be at another wedding with a DJ, you could always pay close attention to the music to find what you do and don’t like. If you happen to be brave, you could crash a reception to look at the DJ. If you are unable to see how a DJ performs live, check out his or her website. They may have samples of their work as well as rates.

With these tips, you are sure to find a wedding DJ that will make all your reception dreams come true!
