Top 5 Wedding Must-haves

In an effort to save money on your wedding, there are many areas you can cut back on such as decorations and floral arrangements, however, there are certain details that you absolutely can’t skimp on or avoid when planning your wedding. Before you begin the task of cutting items from your wedding, you must consider the most important elements. If you’re on a tight budget, be sure to be diligent and well-organized in your wedding arrangements, determining what items are must-haves and what things you are willing to go without. Once this is decided, find out where you can find the best deals and quality services, determine the maximum amount of guests you can afford, and establish the costs of the food and beverages you plan on serving. Still at a loss for what items you can do without? Here are a few wedding essentials that you shouldn’t be cheap about.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are an important part of the wedding celebration because they leave the first and most meaningful impression of your impending matrimony. Emails, E-vites, and other forms of online communication will not suffice as methods of inviting guests to your wedding. If you’re crafty and into DIY projects you can create your own homemade invitations using a wedding invitation kit; however, it’s best to spend money on professional wedding invitations.

Gifts for Your Bridal Party

While you don’t have to shell out a lot of money on lavish gifts for your bridal party, you must present them with some token of appreciation. It’s wonderful if you can afford to shower your bridesmaids with wedding day jewelry from 77Diamonds; however, if this out of your budget, go for simple gifts such as bath products and candles or treat them to pre-wedding day pedicures and manicures from Red Door Spa. If you absolutely cannot afford bridesmaids’ gifts, cut down on your bridal party or throw a bridal party dinner.

Wedding Photography

Even if you plan on having a low-key celebration, your wedding photos are still an integral part of documenting the beginning of your marriage. These photos will be seen by all of your friends and family, now and in the future, so it’s best that you hire a professional photographer to capture the special moments of your wedding. Wedding receptions tend to be dark and chaotic, so it’s best to go with a professional who has the skills needed to properly photograph every aspect of your big day.

The Reception

After months, sometimes years, of planning, you definitely shouldn’t scrimp on your reception—after all, what’s a celebration without an awesome party? You don’t have to spend a lot on food and beverages as you can easily get away with an open bar cocktail hour with hors d’ oeuvres then a few small dishes. Buffets and cash bars are also cheaper solutions. Wedding entertainment is another area where you don’t want to pinch pennies. Every party needs good entertainment, so don’t scrimp when it comes to your wedding band or DJ. With the right entertainment, your wedding reception will be an unforgettable event.

For almost 7 years, I have had a LIVE Mixshow on a site called Stickam.

Recently, I was notified that the site would be closing.

When I learned my favorite platform, Stickam, would be shut down soon, I decided to perform one last show, LIVE in the mix until the very end! My LAST DJ MIXSHOW on Stickam was LIVE for over 25 hours! The  show was viewed 44,715 times. Those views, combined with the views my channel received in the month of January, brought my total views for the month to around 240,000, nearly a quarter million!

In the month before Stickam closed I was at the top of the rankings for most viewed.

Now all of my internet friends from Stickam are refugees!

Many have moved on to new internet homes like BlogTV, Ustream, Icanhazchat, Justin.tv and others…

I attempted going LIVE on YouTube via Google+ Hangouts

and I recorded a small part before being notified that I would be shut down if I continued.

Back to square one.

I have performed LIVE via Ustream in the past and I may start on that site again.

However, I am interested in trying a new platform that was recommended to me.

I am going to try my first LIVE mix from there this evening.

WISH ME LUCK!

I Love my Fans!
