helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Wedding planning involves many unexpected expenses, and it's incredible how much a DJ or band can cost. However, you can save hundreds to thousands of dollars on your reception entertainment with a free and customizable DJ alternative: Slacker Radio.

Slacker is a personal radio service offering custom stations. The bride and groom can enter their favorite bands and artists, creating a personalized wedding station that is the perfect combination of their musical tastes. There is an option to eliminate explicit content (avoiding any awkward family moments), and you can even share the link to the station with your wedding guests which can serve as free wedding favors that continue to entertain well after the reception is over.

If you'd rather spend more time eating cake samples and less time planning music, Slacker also offers over 150 genre stations, all curated by expert DJs (not algorithms). Slacker's genre stations include Today's Hits, Love Songs, Party Hits, Slow Jamz, Rock Ballads and Party Hip Hop/R&B.

Available for all major smartphones, the iPad, Sonos wireless systems and on the web at, Slacker Radio is convenient and accessible. And with the money you save, maybe you can even splurge on that pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos that you've been dreaming of! 😉
