Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

“Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?”

This week, we are still in our 8-1o month time block until you and your soon-to-be say, “I do!”

Now that you have a date, venue, caterer, and a rough draft of your guest list… It’s time to pick a DJ!

Freestyle Entertainment Fairy Godmother

Fairy Godmother Colleen with Mike of Freestyle Entertainment!

Not all weddings have DJ’s, some have live bands, or other forms of musical entertainment. We want to help you make sure that you get exactly what you want for you on your special day. This is just one of the many ways that you get to share your personality and interests with your guests as you engulf them into a full experience of you as a couple.

A good DJ can make or break your guests’ experience. If you want that loud, exciting, and constant action- a harpist or violinist may not be for you.

Fairy Godmother has had the greatest pleasure of working with so many kinds of entertainment! We have had the harpist, the 5-piece band, and of course, we have worked with a fabulous variety of DJ’s!

Every single creative partner has a distinct style, all finding the best ways to appeal to their couples’ needs.

This is where searching for the right DJ comes in. You want to give yourself options, not just selecting the one that played a really super awesome playlist off the internet at your cousin’s brother’s mother’s wedding.

You want to have a personal experience that is all your own, so be sure to book appointments with a few and if they don’t have that “WOW!” factor right off the bat, you may want to explore other avenues and options.

“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

At Fairy Godmother we not only have the best friends, we have the BEST of friends!

When Colleen began Fairy Godmother, her “friend circle” steadily grew with mentors. Mark with Freestyle Event Services has been with us from the ground up and one of the very first mentors for Fairy Godmother! Whenever we need him, he’s there. Even when the fairy magic creates some pretty wild ideas, not to mention rain… And do we mean some serious rain!

While being a successful businessman, Mark is a wonderful dad to his two daughters. Teaching them the importance of hard work and determination, while being the best role model possible. While he is a phenomenal dad and businessman, he has provided as a constant cheerleader to the Fairy Godmother company. He has consistently pushed us to do better, even at our best! Watching Freestyle and Fairy Godmother grow and share their magic, with great thanks to his constant encouragement!

While being a dad and businessman is important, we also know that a little fun is always a good thing… And man oh man, have we found one of the most fun guys around! Picture a friendship that was created off the idea of confetti cannons… Yep, you guessed it, that’s exactly how we became “friendors!”

Colleen recalls just how she met Mark back in November of 2008. When she began planning the Women’s Business conference to be held in April of 2009, she knew right off the bat that confetti cannons were a necessity, obviously. A friend from Rabobank Arena, Sam Williams, suggested a DJ company who she felt could help, from the first time Colleen met Mark it was instant friendship.

On behalf of the Fairy Godmother team thank you for your constant friendship and guidance in this “happy business!” Mark, let this blog provide as one way to say “thank you” for always making time for us, being a great mentor and coach, and above all else, thank you for being a “forever friend” to all of us Fairies!

We could not agree more!

When we first met JC and his talented team from All Sound Music Entertainment, we knew without a doubt that our fairy family was about to grow, and oh it did!

JC brings more than just the most “unique” DJ service to your event, he brings up-lighting and custom monograms!

The personal approach that ASM brings to any event is phenomenal, something that is truly desired by any client or guest!

Family is everything to JC and his ASM team. JC will be the first one to tell you that family is everything and always would be #1.

One of the more personalized aspects of ASM’s dedication to their clients is that they only work with one client at a time to ensure that each event is executed at the fullest potential.

Wedding Wednesday – You’re Engaged, Two Weeks From Your Big Day, Now What?

We know that you have already chosen your DJ or band for your big day, but what will they play??

DJ John from AllSound Music

If you’re more of a rock ‘n roll kind of couple, you probably won’t be too thrilled with your DJ if he only plays country. To some, this would be considered their ultimate nightmare, even!

DJ Jeff Woods

Now that you are just two weeks away from your big day, you want to be sure that you contact your DJ with a list of your preferred song titles, artists you enjoy, or at the very least, a genre to help keep things rolling smoothly for you!

While your DJ may be okay with it, you don’t want to bombard your DJ every time a song pops into your head that you have to have on your playlist. Instead, maybe keep a list and update them once a week or so. This would also be an ideal time to make sure your DJ has your “Do Not Play” list, along with the clear communication of how requests will be handled, if you choose to do so.
