When you arrive to the reception site send someone over to the DJ booth to let me know. I will meet the bridal party outside of the room to get them lined up and pumped up for the grand march. I will be going over name pronunciations with you approximately 3 weeks before your special day.

1 song for everyone
1 for the wedding party and another song for the bride and groom
1 song for each couple

Would you like to go strait into the cake cutting (recommended) or wait until after dinner (I typically like to do cake cutting immediately following the grand march while everyone's attention is on you. It also gives the staff time to cut the rest of the cake for desert if it is the same cake. Every wedding is different thought and the final decision is completely customizable)?
