Aaaaand back to wedding stuff I’ve taken a break from planning but now that the wedding is less than a year away, I’m starting to think about it more and more!
I am happy to say that we’ve finally secured our dream Vancouver wedding DJ, Austin Beaver! We’re so excited! I’ve interviewed over 20 different DJs in Vancouver, Seattle, Vancouver Island… and Austin is by far the most highly recommended and reviewed DJ I’ve found. He made a fantastic impression on us.
Austin is an award-winning DJ and MC, and has performed at celebrity weddings and Fortune 500 events. I think what I’m most excited about Austin is that he actually DJs on the turntables… rather than just playing off an iPod playlist like most DJs I’ve found so far. He’s also very authentic, funny, and can figure out and play to the vibe of a party.
What I’ve realized from talking to all our friends and family about what makes a wedding “fun”, is the people and the party. No one really remembers decorations or all the little details. Those are important to me too, but we decided that the DJ is a huge component of the fun factor of a wedding. What do you think?
I’m also happy that Austin has kindly offered a discount to any of my readers… if you’d like to book Austin for your event or big day, if you mention VancityAllie to him he will give you a big discount of $200 off his services! Woohooo! You can also follow him on Twitter for wedding suggestions, music picks and advice for the groom.
Lastly… I’d love your recommendations on wedding music!
What kind of music makes a wedding fun? What song is a MUST-PLAY at a wedding? Thanks for your help!
