Create a Timeline:
By creating a timeline for your wedding or event, you help organize the flow of activities during the event. No matter what happens, as long as we have a tentative schedule for your event, we can always move things back or move them up, depending on if things are running on schedule or not. A timeline helps to ensure that all of your vendors will be on the same page as to what sequence things will be happening. This timeline will also help us to coordinate with your other event vendors to make sure they are in the right place at the right time. (Bridal Clients: If you are working with a wedding planner, they will create a timeline for you, and you can simply have them email us a copy)
Select the Music for Dinner and Cocktail Hours:
You will find a form in the portal called the "Cocktail and Dinner Music Planner." This form will allow you to select specific genres of music for the first portion of the evening. (This period of time is referred to as the cocktail and dinner hours). The planner will help you narrow down your musical preferences for this part of the evening. The planner lists different genres of music and gives you examples of artists and songs that fall into that genre. You simply select the genres of music you would like us to use.
