This is the final installment of our 5 F's series, and it sure has been fun! (no pun intended)

Fun for a wedding reception would account for the band or DJ, this can also include any live music you have for a ceremony as well. Personalizing the ceremony is always a treat for your guest, don't you think? I mean when the bride and groom have kissed and they are announced as husband and wife, and then they are about to walk down the aisle and you are ready for "Dumm-dumm-da-dumm-dumm-dumm-dum-da-da-da-da-dummmmmm" and instead you hear "Let's Celebrate" or your favorite Beatles song, or "The Gator, Orange and Blue" Song, it's fantastic and it gets your guests ready for the fun'ness that is about to happen. The Reception.

Wedding Bands (I don't mean the ones you wear) have come along way! And so have disc jockey's - Bands are no longer cheesy, have songs that all sound the same- things can be completely customized to what you need and how you want it. For instance I just had a duo learn "The Feather Song" from Forrest Gump for a client - and it brought tears to the eyes of everyone there! Thanks Gosia and Ali! It was really beautiful - and the next moment they can play "We are Family" - make sure that the band you are working with sends you a DVD, this way you can not only see them in action but how they work with the crowd too.

DJ's have also gone from campy to classy! There used to be a lot of DJ's that would sing to the music and make themselves the center of attention - (I am sure there are still a few of them out there) but beware, ask lots of questions! Get references from vendors especially, we work with these companies week-in and week-out, so feel free to ask around. I find companies like Solutions Entertainment and Storybook Events work very hard to make sure that the guests have a great time - and the bride and groom are the center of attention.

Check out my friend Peter Merry's new book, it totally rocks it's called The Best Wedding Reception Ever, it has some great ideas for a fun and totally unique wedding reception.

Check out these images of Robin's wedding, photographed by Damon Tucci, the band was Derek & The Slammers - everyone is totally having Fun!!!
