It’s true that many weddings fit a fairly standard format; with a degree of embellishment according to the bride and grooms’ vision and dreams.
But, many weddings don’t.
And for the ones that don’t; you need to pick suppliers who have the flexibility, experience, knowledge and willingness to adapt, understand and create the wedding that suits not only the couple, but their guests. If you don’t; at worst, things could go wrong and even at best; small but important details could be missed that could make all the difference.
The colour white is unlucky at a Chinese Wedding and is normally used at funerals!
Rather than cutting a cake, Russians break bread!
And at Jewish receptions; dancing will often take place before, during as well as after the wedding breakfast.
Crucial nuggets of knowledge and information that make a difference to your multi-cultural wedding.
What a wonderful world…
Perhaps you’re marrying into a different culture. There could be a whole genre of music that for you is unfamiliar but for a proportion of your guests will attract them to the dance floor.
As a DJ born and bred in London; multi-cultural weddings have formed an integral part of my business from the very beginning. There is no one-size fits all. There is a need to be thoughtful, respectful, careful and flexible. It’s about listening and welcoming all cultures, quirks, requirements, likes and dislikes regardless of whether they are standard practice.
But most importantly, as a DJ, it’s about the music. Having access to an extensive range of songs that will appeal to the cultures of guests at your wedding and weaving this music seamlessly into the evening. This takes time, research, preparation, effort and skill. We ensure you can choose from an international songlist. Or if you know the genre, the culture or country, just leave the selection to us.
Imagine the faces of your guests when they hear the songs that are truly music to their ears.
