We know, we know. Both of you are on a tight budget and having a wedding ain’t exactly cheap. Maybe you plan on having the nupitals at your parents’ house, get your Aunt Jenny to help with the decor, and Uncle Fred to do video-on-the-go. All in the name of making that sticker shock just slightly less shocking. We get it. But here at LET’S PARTY, we also know that often, the best value comes in leaving it to the professionals. Because after all, don’t you want to enjoy your wedding day? So while we’re all for your BFF planning the stag party, we ask you to listen to the experts at Bridebox, who let you know what seven things to definitely NOT DIY at your wedding.

(By the way, that goes triple for DJing your own wedding. Leave the iPod for the office and the gym.)

Of course, we at LET’S PARTY can steer you in the right direction to help you with the wedding of your dreams while making sure you have plenty of money left over to blow on your honeymoon or fix your dream home. Call us at (561) 251-0810 and let us know what you need. We’re here to help!

Couple’s Corner: How To Find a Great Wedding Photographer

say cheese

As the old saying goes, throw a stone in any direction and you’re going to hit at least ten photographers. Okay, maybe that’s not an old saying, but the fact remains that those who specialize in wedding photography are everywhere. Just a localized Google search will likely turn up dozens, if not hundreds, of names. How to tell who is just right for you, your theme, your budget? Of course you could go by recommendations (and you should), but there are other things to look out for. What worked for your BFF may not be your cup of tea. Our friends at The Knot have some hints for you to get started here.

(Don’t forget, we at LET’S PARTY can help you out with photography along with your music and entertainment. Feel free to ask about photo packages when you call us at (561) 251-0810 or email at info@letspartydjs.com!)

Even down here in Florida, we appreciate fall wedding cocktails. (Hey, we do have that cooler night on occasion.) Whether your catering service includes a bartender, or it’s a DIY affair with your cousin behind the bar, give one of these recipes to your mixologist for something different from your regular spirit-and-soda. Try a Pumpkin Spice Cocktail, an Apple Cider Margarita, or my personal favorite, a Pumpkin White Russian. Pssst…you don’t even have to have one on your wedding day. Check out the entire list on The Knot.
