Wedding Formalities, When To Do Them | Getting Creative With Your Wedding Reception

Many couples have asked me during a final meeting before the big-day when the best time to do the special dances is.  My reply, is always right after introductions. First Dance, Parent Dances, Toasts, Blessing is my favorite order of events after a highlight introduction of the wedding couple.

In every wedding, I’ve done, I’ve always found that having your First Dance right away after being introduced is a great transition.  You have everyone’s attention and you’re dancing right into the dance floor. The energy and attention level is high if you’ve hired a professional experienced DJ they’ll be able to help aid special lighting for photos, a first dance remix, or inviting married couples or a wedding party to join.

When I get to recommend the timing for the Parent Dances or any other Special Dances, I like to do these immediately following the First Dance.  From a photographer’s perspective, the lighting will now be the same for all the highlight moments on the center of the dance floor.  Additionally, it is an awesome photo and moment to have the bride or groom hand off their spouse to a mother or father for the following dance.  Here are a few ideas to implement these traditions in a modern way: The simplest is to keep the song(s) chosen shortened.  A professional experienced DJ/Emcee can help make a great edit or transition.  There’s nothing wrong with combining a special dance Father/Daughter Mother/Son at the same time to a special song.  Additionally, you can do fun things like special slide shows in the background of specific photos of the relationships, make a mix and have a blend of upbeat and slower music to shock your guests and show your personality, or if you’re not the type of person that doesn't like the center of attention there’s never anything wrong with coming up with your own tradition or not doing either of these dances at all. It’s your wedding.  Hire vendors that support that and have the experience to make your vision become a reality with a smooth flow and positive energy guest involvement.

When you’re asking a Maid/Matron of Honor, Best Man, or Relative to speak on your behalf I always recommend to do Toasts earlier rather than later.  Not everyone is a public speaker and that’s ok!  A true professional has pro-grade gear to aid that.  Additionally, most reception offer some form of alcohol consumption.  The sooner someone gives the toast, the less alcohol they’ll have consumed during a four or five our open bar.  Depending on the inside jokes and teenage/college stories, that may be a good idea,

Through these moments, you’re retaining the attention of the guests by doing everything at once.  Some things to be cautious about are later in the evening you’ll have a group at the bar, maybe out for a smoke, you may have a guest leave early, etc.  Typically, at the time of introductions everyone is in the room and no one will miss one of these highlight moments.

I'm getting married in a barn. Should I have any lighting?

There is no denying that barn style venues have made their mark in the wedding industry. Klock Entertainment has had the opportunity to work at so many cool venues that that taken on this style, and every time the same question seems to come up…”I like the way my venue looks, do I need lighting?”  The short answer is no, if you are completely content with the way your venue looks then I would argue that there is no need to change it.  However, there are ways to enhance your venue, rather than change the way it feels.  Below you’ll find some of our most popular options for barn style venues that create even more ambiance, without taking away from that natural feel that drew you to the venue initially.

Introductions are our FAVORITE part of a reception!

When we have planning meetings with couples prior to their wedding day, one of the most common questions we get is “What do most people do for introductions?”  There is no single answer to this question.  Some couples create a list of VIPs including their wedding party, grandparents, parents, ring bearers, and flower girls.  Other entrances feature only the two newlyweds walking through the front doors to a slammin’ soundtrack.  We created a compilation video of pro-shot, self-shot, and cell phone footage to show how exciting being introduced can be!

Whether you choose to include the entire extended family or just a few close friends, this part of the night sets the tone and energy for the rest of the evening.   You can have your wedding party greet you by forming an arch or a straight line on the dance floor as you lead into your first dance.  Encourage your wedding party to add some creativity to their entrance with props, dance routines, or by picking their own intro song.  For Wedding Intro Song Ideas, hop over to our Wedding Songs Blog post and get sample tracks for each part of the night.
