17 Wedding Tips that Brides Can Use to Have the Best Wedding Reception in Houston

I get tons of traffic to my youtube page. I have 3 videos with well over 20,000 views (Quinceanera DJ Houston Video #1 – 21,179 views : DJ Houston Wedding Mix Video # 2 – 32,826 views : DJ Houston Sonidero Mix Video # 3 – 43,560 views and all but 1 with over 1,000 views.  As a result, I get lots of people that want to subscribe to my videos and whom save my videos on their favorites.

Today I logged into my DJ Youtube account and got a new friend request. Of course, I checked out his videos and wanted to see what he was all about. He’s a cool guy that does stage lighting for big venues, concerts, fights and things of that nature. I don’t know why he would want to be a friend with a little ol’ DJ like myself, but obviously he liked something I had on my videos.

On his favorites I found a video Titled : Best Wedding Reception Tips which had over 5,685 views. And if you can get a video to be viewed more than One Thousand Times, then you got a really good video that people love.

I decided to share this video with my audience because the tips on this video are so helpful and easy to implement, I just thought to myself, this video needs to be seen. Brides as well as wedding vendors can definitely improve a wedding reception if they follow these 17 tips, and they can all be easily implemented by anyone.

Video is by party guru DJ Dan Nichols of Michigan’s Boogie Brothers Productions. Check out his website for more informative and helpful videos.

Let me type these tips out for you so that you can just copy and paste them into your word document.

  1. Don’t put the older guests next to the speakers or the dance floor.
  2. Don’t cram your entertainment out of the way.
  3. A party should end when it shouldn’t end.
  4. A ‘too small’ dance floor is better than one that is too big.
  5. Darker is better than lighter for dancing.
  6. Keep the exit doors closed. 6a. Brides and Grooms should not stand near the exit door.
  7. Nicer places (such as country clubs with great views) actually make it harder for people to dance.
  8. The bar should always be in the main room.
  9. If you are going to shut the bar down, do it during dinner.
  10. Happy music keeps things going.
  11. Respect the musical opinions of your local professionals (us dj’s).
  12. Your wedding vendor should eat with the guests.
  13. Consider not doing a Dollar dance.
  14. People tend to remember the beginning and the end (I’ve gotten some referrals just on my MC’s opening speech).
  15. Traditional events or speeches should be done before dancing, including formal pictures.
  16. Do all you can to arrange your rehearsal dinner 2 nights before the wedding.
  17. If you have to cut corners, don’t compromise on your entertainment.
