“Where it’s covered in all the coloured lights, Where the runaways are running the night…”
You know I love to entertain, the glitz and glamour of being a female Saxophonist, my light up sax, the privilege of getting to do what I love every night. It never grows old, I’m living my dreams.
I get to perform at some incredible weddings and events and for this blog post I thought I’d suggest some wedding entertainment ideas!
It’s your show – so forget about everyone else
Everyone may think you’re ideas are unusual but don’t worry about what people think! Your wedding is your show – and you should have faith in your ideas. It is about you and your partner, about your incredible love.
Avoid awkward silences
Weddings bring people together that mightn’t mix in normal life. This isn’t a bad thing but sometimes there can be silences that need to be filled. During the photos, for instance, you could have musicians play nearby, to keep guests entertained. (I could always play something refined to create a relaxed atmosphere)
Choose music that takes guests on a journey
I absolutely love chatting with the future Mrs and Mr about what songs mean something to them as a couple so that I can include them in the playlist for the night. Songs can evoke so many different emotions… and can be the perfect soundtrack to your big day.
Steer clear of the traditional mobile DJ
If you want your wedding to be extra special and an event that people look back on years later and say ‘Gosh, that was the best wedding ever’ you do need to spend time thinking about your wedding entertainment. At the evening do, you don’t want an empty dance floor or people disappearing before the clock strikes midnight, you want them up on their feet dancing the night away.
The right musician will lift the party to another level, get people to lose themselves in the beat, to forget about everything apart from that moment…. You need Girls That Mix!!!!!! We are an all-female DJ, Sax, Percussion and Electric violin group. We are THE perfect wedding entertainers and can bring something truly unique.
Let’s chat!!!! Get in touch if you want to book me/Girls That Mix for your wedding, whether it’s this year, next year or a few years away. It’s better to get me to pencil you in now, rather than you being disappointed later.
Love you loads, go be magical,
