fairy tale wedding

You don’t have to be royalty to feel like royalty on your wedding day

By | Lighting

Be honest: do you imagine your upcoming wedding day as a fairy tale wedding? A dream-come-true? Your day to feel like a princess?

I hope the answer is yes, because dreams can … and SHOULD … come true on your wedding day. Take a few minutes and watch the video above as Prince William and Kate Middleton exchange their wedding vows in the resplendent West Minster Abbey.

Your fairy tale wedding awaits

You don’t have to become the Duchess of Cambridge to feel like a Royal Highness on your wedding day. Even more, you don’t need to hold your wedding reception in the Buckingham Palace to feel like royalty. There are more affordable solutions.

Queen City DJs offers a way to level the playing field between your limited budget and the Royal Family’s bulging coffers. It begins with the power of fun. If people are having fun, they’re not focused on how much you spent on the flowers or the food, they’re focused on how great you have made them feel.

The power of fun unites wedding guests to be fully engaged in the true meaning of the day, which is the cherished union of two lives which has just taken place before their very eyes.

Queen City DJs knows how to create the fun that keeps a dance floor packed and your guests united in celebration of your glorious wedding day.

DJ integrity

DJ integrity is everything

By | Wedding planning

Do you like the owner of  the DJ company you’re considering for your wedding? If not, move on. DJ integrity is paramount to a successful wedding. The first vibe you pick up from a company is often telling.

Trust your instincts.

Don’t look back. Wedding celebrations are special, and entertainment makes the event. If there is something about the personality of the owner of a DJ company company that just doesn’t sit right with you, find someone else.

For the record, that includes me!

Chemistry is important at weddings, and your DJ company has a disproportionate impact on the success of your event. Choose carefully, beginning with an assessment of how well you LIKE and TRUST the owner.

Now how do you do that? You need to make some sort of personal contact.

You can’t do that if you’re merely filling out a form on a website and hitting send. Yes, we’ve got awesome forms right here  and here on our own website.  They’re a start. but better yet, pick up the phone and call.

Do you get a real, live person on the phone, and if not,  how quickly do you get a call back?

And here is the key: how well do they come across on the phone? Are they warm and friendly? Do they listen? Do they come across like they care about your event? Even more, are they excited about your event? Or do you get the sense that they look at you merely as a paycheck?

You can’t beat the personal touch.

As wonderful as modern technology is, it does you no favors by de-personalizing the wedding planning process. Don’t let that happen to you. Pick up the phone and call us at 513-659-9293, because we’d love to talk to you about your event.

Better yet, set up a time to meet in person. This is the ultimate way for you to get to know the person who can make or break your event. This is the ultimate way for you to gauge their integrity, and DJ integrity is everything.
