Great Advice from a Chicago Wedding DJ

How to streamline and de-stress your wedding

  • Be sure the groom and groomsmen try on their tuxes at least two days before the wedding, to give them time for last-minute alterations.
  • When you pose for your first-kiss picture, hold the kiss for a few seconds, to let everyone take their pictures.
  • Be sure you know the names of the people each vendor is sending to your wedding. You don’t want unpleasant surprises.
  • Ask if your venue or caterer provides take-home boxes for your guests who can’t finish their dinner.
  • Tell your photographer in advance what special shots you absolutely want him or her to take.
  • Have your thank-you cards written and envelopes addressed BEFORE the wedding, so you don’t have that chore awaiting you when you return from your honeymoon.
  • Consider serving your wedding dinner family-style instead of having plated meals. It’s a great way to encourage your guests to get to know one another.
  • Take time during your hectic wedding day to get away for a few minutes — just the two of you — to relax and savor the moment.
  • If you have the time and energy, write a personal note on the back of each table card, to make each guest feel special.
  • Be sure your venue has a special room set aside exclusively for you and your wedding party to use during your reception.
