Sample Timeline for a Wedding

Friday, May 30, 2014

Today I met with a young couple planning their wedding and they wanted me to help them with their timeline. They have never been to a wedding before and were not show in the order in which things should happen.

Here is the list I gave them for a typical 4 hour wedding for me in South Florida.

6:30 - Ceremony
Here we play songs for guests as they sit and wait, for the bridal party and bride entrance, and for the couple once they are married.

7:00 - Cocktail Hour
Usually we come up with a nice playlist of songs based on the client's preference.

8:00 - Reception Starts
Guests coming in and sit at their tables.

8:15 - Grand Entrance
Here is a sample of the line up:

  1. Parents of the Bride (optional)
  2. Parents of the Groom (optional)
  3. Bridesmaids & Groomsmen
  4. Flower Girl & Ring Bearer
  5. Maid of Honor & Best Man
  6. Bride & Groom

Usually we play a specific song for the wedding party and a different one for the newlyweds. It's up to you if you want the bridal party to line up by the dance floor and wait for the bride and groom to come in. This looks nice and it's an opportunity for some nice photos.

8:20 - First Dance
Dance to your favorite love song.

8:25 - Parent Dances
Bride and father first; Groom and mother next.

8:40 - Toast and Speeches
The Bestman and Maid of Honor usually do this. Father of the bride sometimes likes to say a few words. A blessing can also be done at this point right before dinner.

8:50 - Dinner Starts
Get something to eat first then you can go around tables saying thanks and taking photos. Your photographer will have a game plan for this.

9:00 - Cake Cutting
I like doing this at the end of dinner, but it's up to you if you want to do it later. I just hate to interrupt the party once the dancing starts... kind of kills the dance vibe.

9:15 - Dance Floor Opens
We turn up the music and get everyone dancing.

10:15 - Bouquet Toss and Garter Removal
A fun activity.

11:00 - Reception Ends
Check with the venue as they sometimes like the DJ to stop 5 or 10 minutes before.

Cruz Building Wedding DJ - Bride's Testimonial

Friday, May 09, 2014

Wedding at the Cruz Building in Coconut Grove

What a great feeling it is for me to know that I did my part for a couple on their wedding day.



One of the most memorable aspects of my wedding had to be Enrique (DJ Luna)! He was extremely accommodating with all my requests and specific music requirements. I sent him all the music I wanted for my ceremony, cocktail and reception and he executed everything with absolute perfection! All my guests were complimenting us on our unique music choices and how it created the perfect mood for everyone to mingle and relax. After dinner he kicked it up on the dance floor with the colored party lights and all the songs we requested on our "must play" list. He even worked with the Hora Loca performers my mom secretly hired to perform for us and the guests. Everyone at our wedding had a wonderful time and the music made the night all the more memorable. To top it off, Enrique even took pictures of the setup and reception space (and a perfect shot of me walking down the isle) and sent them to me when We returned from our honeymoon. Thank you Enrique for being such an important piece of our beautiful wedding.

Decorative Uplighting Wedding Coral Gables Miami

Monday, March 17, 2014

Decorative uplighting can do wonders to enhance the look and feel of your wedding reception. Thanks to today's LED fixtures we can easily match just about any color. Make sure to consult with your DJ or lighting provider to ensure the colors are what you want. Also keep in mind that the color of the room and its decor can affect the color. Even if it's not 100% exact, I assure you no one will notice anything but a beautifully decorated reception hall.

Live Percussionist & DJ at Your Wedding

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Adding an element of live music at your event is currently one of the most popular add-ons. A live percussionist is an excellent example of infusing some high energy and excitement during part or all of your event. Very popular is to have them perform during the Hora Loca or at any time during the dance portion of your event.

Quinces by DJ Luna Entertainment – Wellington FL

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Wellington FL – DJ Luna Entertainment

Congratulations to Cayleigh on her Quinces celebration.

DJ Luna Entertainment had the pleasure to DJ and Emcee this important event for this sweet young lady. Everyone danced and had a great time sharing with family and friends.

Many of the guests had never been to a Quinces before so I was tasked with explaining a little bit of the history and meaning behind some of the traditions. This particular Quinceañera was not as traditional as some others we have done. Cayleigh decided to only do the Grand Entrance, the Shoe Ceremony, she got a gift from mon and dad and of course her first dance with dad. During the Shoe Ceremony I was telling guests how these was the first time the little girl gets to wear a pair of high heels… everyone laughed at that one. We coordinated on some background music to play at each of these activities that would help to enhance and set the mood.

During dinner mom and dad showed a movie they had prepared showcasing her little girl and how she has grown in these past 15 years. This video or slide show has become a very popular aspect of a quinces celebration. Whether a professionally shot video or a homemade slide show, the impact is just as powerful among friends and family who are watching. On a side not I would just suggest to parent not to include potentially embarrassing photos of the birthday girl no matter how cute you they think it is. Luckily we did not have that issue here.

Later that evening the Quinceañera thanked all attending and handed out a number of favors to special guests. Usually we see this done with the candle ceremony where each person she thanks would come up and light a candle, but like I said, she was not traditional, and it was a lot of fun doing it this way.

Quinces held at the Binks Forest Golf Club in Wellington Florida.
