Entertainment turned out to be the main focus for our reception. Nobody likes to go to a predictable ‘been-there, seen-that’ wedding, and I didn’t want that for our guests either. We went with a jazz-funk band instead of a DJ, and are having a few choreographed dances to keep the party going. Since these are not your standard wedding must-haves, I found it difficult to commit and make decisions for the entertainment.

First, finding the right band was a challenge (they are ridiculously expensive), but with a little help from the parents, we booked a fabulous 6 piece band.


Second, my mother-in-law-to-be gave Sam and I dance lessons as our birthdays gifts, so we will be doing a choreographed first dance. I have never taken dance lessons, so it was a bit nerve racking, but I know it will pay off in the end.

Third, we asked some family friends to do a bollywood style dance for us, and they asked me to join them for the last half of the song as a surprise for our guests! I am so excited and have loved learning the art of bollywood dancing!


Needless to say, we’re hoping it’s a party full of fun and dancing! Are you becoming part of the entertainment on your wedding day or leaving it up to the pros?
