  • How To Structure A Plated Dinner Wedding

    Here in the Pacific Northwest, an overwhelming majority of weddings feature a buffet line for the reception’s meal service. However, I’m beginning to notice an increase in the number of weddings I’m performing at that are featuring a plated dinner. This is great to hear!

    In my opinion, plated dinners are an elegant alternative to the buffet line. Conversely, in my experience, they also take longer to complete; sometimes up to two hours or more for 150 guests. In short – ironic pun not intended! – that’s less time for dancing and celebration…

    …if you do not format your reception’s itinerary correctly and leverage time.

    Simply put, you cannot run a buffet-style itinerary – Grand Entrance, Buffet, Toasts, Formalities, Dancing – when opting for a plated dinner. Well, technically, you can, but it’s a huge mistake. It often leaves minimal dance floor time at the end, and guests become antsy as they have to wait for everyone to be served and then sit through toasts, formal dances and cake cutting.

    Plain and simple: that sucks.

    So, allow me to introduce the Plated Dinner Itinerary.

    The key to plated dinners is understanding the format (i.e. how many courses and how served) and having EXCEPTIONAL communication with the banquet captain and wedding planner/coordinator, if applicable, before AND during the reception. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH.

    Let’s assume a two course plated dinner with a salad course and entrée course, as well as a champagne toast. As a disclaimer, I’m basing the proceeding from what has worked well for my clients based off my near decades of experience as a EMS DJ a Fort Wayne Wedding DJ who has experience. Here is how I would script the evening, with notes as necessary:

    • Cocktail Hour
    • Grand Entrance
    • First Dance and/or Welcome & Thank You and/or Blessing

    The latter two are optional, yet encouraged where appropriate  The First Dance is strongly recommend here as most believe that the dance floor should be opened by the bride and groom. While there are no rules, it’s always good to follow best practices. With everyone already on their feet as you enter, First Dance photos always look better with guests standing in the background.

    • Salad Course

    As soon as the opening formalities are done, servers will begin to place salads at tables, which can take anywhere from ten to fifteen minutes. As this happens, the Master of Ceremonies is preparing both fathers, as well as the mother of the groom, for their upcoming roles. As soon as the last table has been served, the Banquet Captain notifies the Master of Ceremonies, who then introduces the first father for his remarks.

    • Informal Toasts by Father of the Groom/Bride

    For the guests, these toasts are done with beverage in-hand. The Father of the Bride should speak last, as it makes for a better segue into the Father/Bride dance.

    • Father/Bride Dance
    • Mother/Groom Dance
    • Open Dancing & Socializing

    Here is why I cannot stress enough the need for excellent communication between the Banquet Captain and Master of Ceremonies before and during the reception. Most catering staffs will use this time to bus the salad plates before serving the entrées. Open Dancing here is not meant to be loud and uptempo; slow selections at a softer volume level are consistent with the elegant and romantic atmosphere that come with plated dinners. Elder guests will appreciate this! This time can also be used by the bride and groom to start the meet and greet process before re-seating for the entrée course.

    • Entrée Course

    Brides and grooms this is key: please resume meeting and greeting tables as soon as your meal is finished. By this time you’ll have met a majority of your guests, champagne will have been poured, both your Maid of Honor and Best Man prepped for the toasts and ready to go.

    • Formal Toasts by Maid of Honor & Best Man

    After these toasts, I like to lead with a segue to direct attention to the dance floor. “The Longest Married Couple Dance” works well here, as does a “Dollar Dance” or “Wedding Party Dance”.

    • Open Dancing & Socializing

    Music tempo should now be a nice mix of classic and contemporary selections at a mid-tempo pace for those that would like to dance, but not too loud for those guests that are still finishing their meal or socializing with the bride and groom. It’s all about reading the room and reacting appropriately here.

    Also, take a moment to appreciate the difference here. In the buffet-style format, the entrées would finally have been finished, and we’d just now be starting a four toaster sequence followed by cake cutting, a dessert social and possible sunset photos, and then three formal slow dances. The plated dinner format has leveraged a lot of that time and we already dancing and celebrating!

    • Cake Cutting

    Just wait for the natural time to segue to this – there is no need to do this immediately after the entrée course, unless the cake is to be served as a part of a dessert course. But since we have opted for a two course plated meal, we’ll discuss that variation later.

    • Bouquet & Garter Toss

    Since the cake table is usually off to a side or corner of the room, this directs attention away from the dance floor. Hence, we use the Bouquet & Garter Tosses as a segue back to the dance floor, immediately after the couple has cut the cake.

    • Open Dancing
    • Last Dance

    And that’s it!

    If there is a third course, say dessert or sorbet, the itinerary can be further modified to leverage time. Also to note: this is just a generalized template. The dinner format and formalities you choose to include, among other factors, may dictate a better way to leverage the time. Hiring a skilled Master of Ceremonies who is experienced at designing entertainment itineraries around plated dinners will be money well spent.

They used EMS DJ as their Fort Wayne wedding dj to help celebrate the evening.

    EMS DJ had the pleasure to provide entertainment for Mr. and Mrs. Hartman wedding celebration. Their wedding reception was held at the P.A.L. Club in Hutington, IN! As  a Fort Wayne wedding dj we provided master of ceremonies, custom songs, and lighting for their reception.

    Mr. and Mrs. Hartman and the bridal party were introduced into their Fort Wayne wedding reception using the song Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top.

    It was then followed immediately by their first dance as husband and life for their wedding reception to: Feels Like Home - Chantel (Soundtrack of How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days).

    It was then followed up by a dinner that they cooked themselves and moved towards their father and daughter dance and mother son dance!

    Afterwards they moved into a dollar dance where they danced with Fort Wayne wedding guest that donated $1.00 or more to help them in the future.

    Afterwards we went into open dance, but started the song off with Elvis Presley - I Can't Help Falling In Love because it was the groom's parents anniversary! We had the dance floor packed with this special moment and continued the dancing with Cupid Shuffle for their fort wayne wedding dj.

  • Wedding Planning Rule Number One by EMS DJ a Fort Wayne DJ

    Fort Wayne wedding reception and fort wayne djRemember this #1 Rule when planning your Wedding…IT”S A CELEBRATION!! So, Don’t over think it. If you allow the planning of your wedding to stress you out or ruin the process, you don’t need to be having a wedding. Allow yourself to be in the moment, to enjoy the process, to leave behind the things you don’t need, to accept the things you cannot control or change, and to have fun! It’s Your Wedding, don’t allow relatives or friends to have too much influence, such that it takes away the “you” part of your wedding. You NEED a Venue, Food, Alcohol, Entertainment, a Minister/Rabbi/Officiant, Photographer, and some flowers…you should strongly consider a Month Of Coordinator, A creative designer/florist, a videographer, and a cake/dessert baker. Beyond that, there are things you might want, which will make the event more fun and memorable, but start with the things you know you need and get that part under control. If you’re a busy/highly successful person, you should hire someone (a Professional Wedding Planner) to help you design the decor and timelines and to help hire the vendors, but you probably already know that if you’re a highly successful person. Finally, the entertainment, (which we are biased about) is crucial to the “memorable” and “Fun” factor…choose wisely. If you’re one of our current or previous clients, hopefully you feel that you made the right choice! CELEBRATE, LOVE, DANCE, and LIVE Happily Ever After! Happy Planning friends!

    When planning the entertainment look towards EMS DJ a Fort Wayne wedding dj. We give you a Fort Wayne fun atmosphere, Fort Wayne wedding experience, and meet with your EMS DJ in person for you Fort Wayne dj wedding.

  • 15 Questions to Ask Fort Wayne Wedding DJ

    DJs, with their music selection and announcements, truly set the tone at your reception, so make sure you set aside time to interview your prospective DJs (in person when possible). Listen (and watch) how your prospective DJ responds to the questions below. Then ask yourself if this person is a good fit (Is he likeable? Does she understand what you’re going for? Does he go above and beyond or just enough to get the job done?). You’ll know whether or not he/she sits well with you. Go with your gut. It’s better to do lots of interviews and find someone who you know will represent you well than to hire someone who you’re not completely comfortable with. Believe me, your guests won’t remember everything from your wedding, but they’ll remember the music (especially if it’s bad!).

    1. Soo.. why did you become a DJ?

      If your DJ has a passion for sharing music and loves creating fun dance moments, it’s likely that preparing for and creating those moments will be a top priority for him/her. If it’s not obvious that they put the music first, you might not be getting the type of expertise that you want. Anyone can buy equipment and say they’re a DJ company, but not everyone provides expert song selection and flow. Make sure they care about choosing music that fits you and your wedding before you sign the contract.

    2. What are your favorite wedding songs?

      You can learn a lot about DJs from their favorite wedding songs. Have you heard his/her favorite songs at every wedding you’ve attended? Are they mostly country while you’re mostly indie? If the songs they suggest aren’t your cup of tea, tell them…now. A pro DJ will go above and beyond to find songs that you’ll like and work well with your guests regardless of their own music preferences. It’s just that if you find a professional & experienced DJ whose favorite wedding songs are songs you’d want played at your own wedding, you’re one lucky duck!

    3. How many weddings have you DJed?

      How long have you been DJing? It’s ok if your DJ hasn’t done a hundred weddings, you just want to know that they’ve done at least 10 awesome weddings before and have every intention of doing many more. If they’ve done 100, that’s great. If they’ve been doing it since 1792, that’s.. well, that’s for you to decide. Doing at least 10 weddings gets the kinks out of setup issues and the general flow of weddings. Knowing this along with answers to the other questions can help you justify the price you’re willing to pay.

    4. Will you have any assistance at the wedding?

      Having an assistant or second DJ at your wedding is usually well worth the extra cost. Setup and breakdown of the heavy professional equipment is much quicker, guests requests are better accommodated, vendor cooperation is smoother, and you don’t have to worry about giving the DJs a restroom break (: Just make sure assistants are listed in the contract as well.

    5. What if you’re sick or unable to make it to my event?

      Accidents happen. Better safe than sorry.. Make sure you’re comfortable with your DJs contingency plan. Many will have backup DJs and a system in place for communicating your music preferences. Many won’t. This is something you want stated clearly in the contract.

    6. May I see photos of your setup?

      Unfortunately, every DJ setup was not created equally. Some have light-up panels (or facades) that they use to cover up their equipment. Others have compact podium-looking equipment. We’re not fans of either of these setups and you might not be either. Regardless, it’s a good idea to see photos of his/her DJ setup so you’re not surprised with flashing disco lights or a multi-colored DJ booth at your reception.

    7. What is your equipment malfunction backup plan?

      Will you have backup equipment onsite? I attended a wedding years ago where the DJ showed up as guests were arriving, couldn’t hook up his equipment to the venues’ speakers, and obviously had no backup plan. After a while, they hauled their stuff off and left. The bride was in tears, the guests ate without music on, and the reception was over very soon after. It’s crazy. I know. True story! I think it happened so that I would never forget the importance of backup equipment… ever.

    8. What is your wedding attire?

      Along with event attire, make sure to ask about what they’ll wear for setup. Setting up DJ equipment is a sweaty process that involves heavy equipment, so most DJs won’t be in formal attire during the setup process. Just make sure their attire meets your approval for early guest arrivals.

    9. Do you do ceremonies?

      You might have this covered by classical musicians, but if you’re holding your ceremony outdoors or at the your reception venue, you might still want a little help from your DJ. Extra speakers, microphones, and other equipment can usually be added to your DJ’s workload for less than the cost of renting. Many couples are breaking away from traditional ceremony music and using instrumental versions of their favorite songs.

    10. Are you insured?

      They should be able to email you a copy of their insurance certificate without much effort. Not all venues require it, but it’s nice to know if your DJ company is investing in the health and longevity of their business and ultimately, their service to you.

    11. Can you walk me through your service contract?

      You’ll want to look it over together, ask about anything you don’t understand, and go over extra fees like overtime or setup charges to make sure you know exactly what to expect.

    12. How will you handle guest song requests?

      Make sure they are willing to match guest requests up to your “Do Not Play” list and general music preferences. Also, pro DJs have thousands of songs in their digital libraries and don’t need to lug around CD cases. If you’d like for guests to get in on the action before your big dance party, ask them to request songs in advance through your wedding website or your DJ’s website. Many DJs allow guests to make requests online in advance through a wedding specific link they provide to their couples.

    13. What’s your mic style?

      Can you give me an example of how you would introduce us at the reception? This is a simple way to get a feel for his/her mic style. The DJ should ask you questions about you and your wedding to get a feel for the formality and tone of your wedding, because his/her tone should of course fit your event. We generally like DJs to sound like their best selves talking to a room full of their own friends and family.

    14. How do you encourage guests to dance?

      Some DJs will teach instructional dances (think Cupid Shuffle), while others would never do such a thing. Get a good feel for whether he/she prefers using the mic, good music selections, or both for getting the crowd up on the dance floor before making your decision.

    15. What’s your song selection process? Do you use a set “wedding music” list?

      Your DJ should be willing to put together custom song lists created especially for you based on your preferences and the vibe of your wedding. These lists might be labeled “cocktail hour”, “dinner”, and “dancing” and include more songs than you’d have time to play. This is great if you’d like to approve a pool of songs ahead of time and leave the actual day-of picks to the pro that you hired. It’s like cake tastings, but for your music.. music tastings. I seriously might’ve just coined a new term..
