“La Hora Loca” (The Crazy Hour) Wedding Tip of 2013

We had such a great Wedding Season of 2013. It lasted till the final Saturday of the Year! December 28th. But, this was unlike any other wedding we did all year. This great couple lives in Miami and was planning their wedding in Cleveland Ohio at the Glidden House. The Glidden House is one of Cleveland, Ohio’s most elegant wedding venues. With our couple being from out of state and their wedding being “out of town” we were ready to take on this event with full planning, just as any other wedding. Our online planning area was perfect for the Beautiful Couple to not only create their play list, but to stay in complete contact with their DJ as well. It was through this communication that One of them decided to surprise the other with what is called

“La Hora Loca” or in English “The Crazy Hour”.

It is a designated hour in the evening when the party goes into Carnaval mode. It is a high-energy part of the evening where the host or bride & groom hand out masks and beads and the DJ plays an upbeat set of Spanish music. It’s a party within a party. La Hora Loca can be considered like an After Party within the Party.

A couple of the songs we played for La Hora Loca DJ Play List:
  • “Magalenha” – Sergio Mendes
  • “Samba de Janeiro” – Bellini
  • “75th Street Brazil” – Nicola Fasano
  • “Danza Kuduro” – Don Omar
  • “Waka Waka” – Shakira

This was our first time being exposed to this style of wedding event. However, just as anything else, we did our research and created such a fun night for the beautiful couple! All the way till the last song of the night!!

5 Awesome Tips To Having The Best Wedding Of The Year

At Book That DJ, we thrive on creating fun and memorable weddings! Here are 5 great tips to having the best wedding of the year! Your guests will be talking about how much fun they had and how epic it was for years to come.

 

fun-wedding-ideas5. Engaging Your Guests

Most couples get lost in conversation going around thanking every individual person for coming and this can take up a good portion of your reception. You should most definitely make each person feel like they are important for being there, but there are many ways of doing so. This is where your DJ comes in play.  A great way to do this is by Dedicating songs to certain groups of people (not just individuals, others may feel left out) in attendance. Coordinate with the DJ and personally make announcements throughout the evening that way all of your guests feel like you care about them.  We have even heard of a couple that had a small cake at every table instead of having one cake at a cake table. Then, after dinner they went around cutting each cake in front of their guests as a way to share a moment with them and thank them for coming. When they clap and congratulate you, you simply thank the whole table and tell them to enjoy the rest of the cake while making your way to the next table.

4. Getting Your Bridal Party Involved

Make sure your bridal party knows that they aren’t there to just be at the head table and dress alike. Your bridal party can be a very important element of your wedding and too many times they are underutilized. One thing is a fact… when the bridal party is on the Dance Floor, more people come out to the dance floor. Nobody wants to dance alone in front of hundreds of people. The bridal party already has a “Group”. Challenge your bridal party with the task of making sure people have fun. Most of your bridal party usually knows a lot of the guests at the reception, make sure they engage those guests for you as your representatives. Give them games to play with your guests, like trivia. Let them have a say in the music ahead of time. Maybe even get them to choreograph a dance routine to entertain your guests. A fun bridal party makes for an even better wedding reception.

 

cool-wedding-idea3. Being Creative

Many couples are already creative and get excited about adding their own personal touch to their wedding day. However, we have found that the focus of creative energy is used primarily on decorations and favors. Not that you should not have creative decorations and favors, we encourage you to take it a step further. Create fun and engaging elements with your guests. Another fun idea to engage your guests that we have seen over the past year is to allow all of your guests to come out for the Bouquet and Garter Toss. Then giving a gift to whomever catches each. Try to think of fun games you can play with your guests, or even hiding their “take home memento” under their seats and having them all reach down and grab it.

Of course you knew this was coming. And rightfully so. The DJ is the MOST IMPORTANT Part of your reception. Many people don’t realize this until it is too late. Your DJ will make or break your wedding. It’s that simple. You can have the best wedding decorations, most elegant banquet hall, or mouth watering food, but if your DJ is terrible, that is all your guests will remember. This works both ways… you can have paper plates and plastic ware in a barn with chicken nuggets, but if your DJ is amazing, you had the Best Wedding Ever! When we say DJ, we don’t just mean the music. A great Wedding DJ not only provides and controls the musical element of the evening perfectly, but also controls the awareness and and fun of the evening. 7 out of 10 weddings, you either cannot hear what the DJ is saying during announcements or what your family/friends are saying during toasts/speeches. If your guests can’t hear what is going on, they will get lost and eventually bored. We here at Book That DJ are also sound engineer qualified specialists. We understand the elements of proper sound function and acoustical elements. Entertaining hundreds of guests of all ages, tastes, and personalities is a very daunting task. It takes more than just music to pull off an epic wedding. Everything has to be perfect. The DJs Personality is one of the most important reasons for selecting a DJ. They have to be able to adapt to all of your guests and be “liked” by your guests in order for them to trust him/her with their fun.

 

Wedding fun 1. Have Fun

This is your party. This is your celebration. This day is for you to enjoy yourselves. If you can maximize the tips in numbers 2-5 (especially #2), you will have much less stress about what is taking place throughout the evening and much more free time to enjoy yourselves. Everyone wants to see the bride and groom enjoying themselves. Eat, Drink (if you do), Dance, HAVE FUN! Your guests will follow your lead!
