250 Weddings have seamlessly taken place under my watch. I adore the intimate weddings of 50 guests celebrating with the closest of family and friends. I equally adore the exhilaration of catering and hosting hundreds of guests. I just get my delegation hat firmly fixed on my head and hope weare treated to a dance fest that makes us smile to the end. Click Here if you need any Wedding Advice
No two weddings are the same , the spirit of the Bride and Groom fills the room , thus creating diversity in the same four walls every time …..truly astonishing
Now before we get into the the top 5 let me just say all Krystal Weddings have been perfectly catered and meticulously managed with some of the best external service providers in the business
5. Packing Down Too Quick
The standard rule is give guests half an hour to leave before packing down. No one wants to feel the providers have your money now so get out! Its usually the parents who are collecting up the brides and grooms possessions and we never want them to feel pushed out.
4. Alcohol Shots or Shooters
It is always a recipe for disaster to have spirits available before dinner . There is always that one person who will take the spotlight off the bride and groom for all the wrong reasons
3. Dance Floor Location
The dance floor is always a source of fabulous fun when everyone is ready to bust a move. For those who don”t have the moves the position of the dance floor keeps them in the action. When the DJ plays “I’ve had the time of my life ” no one wants to put baby in the corner !
2. The Music
The music is such a personal choice and can really affect the atmosphere if its too soft or annoyingly loud. Only you know your family and friends so its important you consider them and try not to be too self indulgent. If you are unsure a fun and interactive way is to ask guests what is there favourite song via email or on the invite similar to a dietary requirement . A good DJ will always have great advice and an experienced venue would have advice on providers they have seen in action.
1 . MC/Master of Ceremonies
And here it is the number one atmosphere fail , is a bad MC. First and foremost an MC requirement is personality and a little showmanship (not too much) The MC should warm up the crowd and prepare them for the night ahead and keep things running on time. They understand the important balance of formality and a bit of fun. The introduction of the bridal party should be celebratory and not comparable to roll call in science class.
