Everything you need to know about wedding day music
We have also had couples adding on our full hosting options with just a few weeks to go until their wedding day. Whilst we have been lucky to accommodate these changes, I wanted to talk to you about daytime music & hosting and hopefully give you a little bit of an insight as to why people opt for these options with us, even if the venue offer to do it.
A few songs as your guests arrive and you (or your partner) wait nervously at the front!
Signing the Register – Pick 2/3 songs while you sign the register.
Grand Entrance – Let’s start by getting all of your guests into the room and then having a grand entrance with a song of your choice to announce you into the room with. We suggest a big upbeat song to lift the room and get everyone cheering!
Often venue’s will say that they can provide music for your ceremony and wedding breakfast (note you are still missing two key parts out here). What happens is, when the couple go for their final preparation meetings they are discovering that the music will be played from a iPod dock, it can’t be played outside, worry that it isn’t the venue’s priority or have been told they can use the PA but they need to take care of it themselves.
When you have us to look after your music for the day, we talk through the music that you need at the different parts of the day and go through this in detail. We have multiple PA systems so we can provide music for your drinks reception outside which will then nicely transition for you to enter inside for your wedding breakfast with music still playing.
When you book a host to look after your music for the day that is their priority. All they are thinking about. You don’t need to worry has someone turned it on, have we got the iPad to play the music, have we got a playlist, why has the music stopped. It is all taken care of!
Here’s what Abbie & Luke thought about their all day music and wedding host package at Rushton Hall.
“We first met the Jackstar team at Rushton Hall a couple of years before our wedding. We knew that music was a really important part of our day, but didn’t want the stress of organising it all. Jackstar was just perfect because we were able to book everything and have everything organised without any stress. We are so glad we booked the All Day Party Package as it had everything we wanted. The whole team was just great, so friendly and willing to cater to all of our needs. On the day Jack and Elizabeth filled in perfectly and did a great job with everything we had organised. The music catered to all of our styles snf just topped the day off perfectly. We always said that we wanted a nice, classy day, then a party at night and that is exactly what they created for us.” Abbie & Luke – Rushton Hall
