IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!
The Purpose of a Wedding Reception is to give the Bride and Groom, along with their closest friends and family, a chance to celebrate. After all, they just got MARRIED! Food and Drink… Conversation and Laughter… Fun and Dancing are frequently the expected components of this once-in-a-lifetime party.
WHAT DRIVES A CELEBRATION?
There are many “supporting cast members” that play a vital role in a reception celebration. The location provides the setting and determines the time constraints. The catering staff makes sure the guests are well-fed. The bartender keeps the drinks (party lubricant?) flowing. The florist decorates the setting according to the bride’s desired theme. The coordinator manages the “cast” from behind the scenes. The photographer, along with the videographer, document the candid moments and details. But it is the sole responsibility of the ENTERTAINMENT to keep the guests involved and engaged from beginning to end.
MORE THAN “JUST MUSIC”
Unforgettable Reception Entertainment will require much more than “just music” to keep your reception flowing smoothly and filled with fun surprises for your guests to enjoy from one moment to the next. You will need to find a qualified wedding entertainer who can deliver The RESULTS you are expecting. Someone who not only plays music and makes announcements, but a polished Master of Ceremonies who can create moments filled with LAUGHTER, along with a skilled DJ who can get your guests DANCING. The real challenge is finding one person who has The TALENT and the experience to pull it all together in a highly entertaining way without trying to steal the show.
MY NAME IS…
My name is Peter Merry. As one of only a few dozen wedding DJs in the United States to earn the prestigious title of Wedding Entertainment Director®, I have been certified as uniquely qualified to create unbelievably fun wedding reception celebrations. I am very passionate about helping couples plan their receptions with the entertaining results they are hoping for in mind. So much so, that I wrote the first ever wedding planning BOOK for engaged couples who want a fun and memorable celebration. I have been providing my entertainment services at wedding receptions across the United States for over 20 years.
I believe every wedding reception should be a unique reflection of the newlywed couple’s style, personality, humor, values, and traditions. I believe my role in helping those dreams become reality is that of a “director” who is only noticed when an important moment is about to occur. I believe the bride and groom are the “stars” and it is my responsibility to keep the spotlight focused on them and their deserving family and friends. I believe wedding guests will only leave after the cake cutting if they are not being appropriately entertained. I believe that most of the guests at a wedding reception want to dance and celebrate without cheesy tactics being employed to force their cooperation.
