We hope that you had an excellent Summer and Fall 2011.
Congratulations to all of the couples who had their wedding over the Summer!
We had the opportunity to deejay so many great events in Minnesota and Wisconsin and want to thank everyone who chose Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment as their dj of choice this year!
For those of you just starting to plan for 2012 and beyond, here are some quick tips we’ve learned in our 35 years as wedding professionals:
1) Start with the Spot
Getting your ceremony and reception locations chosen is the gateway to all other things wedding planning. Many wedding vendors won’t be able to provide you with an accurate quote until you’ve answered two key questions for your big day: where and when.
For info on some of the best wedding locations in Minneapolis, St.Paul, the Twin Cities, and Greater Minnesota, check out our Venue Partners Homepage:
2) Get an early start!
Most of the wedding vendors you will need offer discounts for couples who reserve early, and often base discounting on availability. If you feel great about a particular vendor, go for it! You will save time and money, and will make the months before your wedding relaxing, rather than stressful because you haven’t made your final decisions.
3) The Vendors You Choose Should:
-Give you options and expert advice.
-Have a backup plan, on-call staffing, and a supervisor you can contact directly the day of your wedding.
4) Attend Bridal Shows
If you’d like to meet the best wedding companies in your area “face-to-face”, check out a bridal show!
Not only will you get a feel for the staff that make up the companies you are considering, but many vendors offer a bridal show discount for couples that reserve at the show. You can compare, contrast, and check vendors off of your list- all in just a few hours!
Best of Luck with your planning everyone!
p.s. Whoa! Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Gobble-Gobble…
Great time at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Nace “Open Arms” event last night at The Depot in
Terrific food, entertainment and a silent auction too! All for a great cause. Well done!
