Happy New Year!
It’s New Year’s Day and I have the day off! So, what better time to sit with my future spouse (we had to use that term in our church “Focus” … the pre- Pre-Cana…) and figure out what we need to do to get this wedding planned!
I’ve been told, a lot, that the next thing we need to do is book our entertainment.
The battle of the band began well before we got engaged. Mo loves a band at a wedding- and has made that very clear time and time again.
I… and I know this statement will make brides across the nation cringe… hate wedding bands.
If I find out that there will be a band at wedding I’m invited to, ugh, it makes me less excited for that wedding. I love love love to dance. I always succeed in logging the most amount of time on the dance floor- I’ll even skip dessert- if there is a good DJ. And if there is a really good DJ- the worm is my specialty!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean the cheesy mic hog passing out blow up guitars kind of MC, but a good DJ that feels the crowd, gets in some Journey and ends the night with Bon Jovi! As luck would have it, one of my close friends is the best MC I know. Heck, his nickname is ECHO.
So, we are trying to compromise and end this battle of the band peacefully. Since we have Oheka Castle all night, we are going to make Mo happy and have a band, and then hopefully bring in a DJ for the end of the night and after-party. (Note to Echo: we need to talk asap)
Have you heard any great wedding bands?
