Engagement Season is Here

It’s that time of year again – with the holidays, New Years, and Valentines Day coming up, it is the perfect time to get engaged and “pop the question” to your significant other.

With everybody already in a festive mood, it is one of the most popular times of the year for couples to get engaged. Whether surrounded by close family, friends, or 10,000 strangers, many will be saying “Yes” to the “Dress”.

Working in the Philadelphia area as a DJ and MC for 15 years and entertaining at many Delaware Valley weddings, I have heard some fantastic engagement stories. Some were spur of the moment and others meticulously planned to the very last detail. Some were in local spots such as Love Park, Rittenhouse Square, the top of the Art Museum steps, and the Jersey Shore.

Here’s to all of the soon-to-be engaged couples in the Delaware Valley….

Congratulations and best of luck with your wedding!

Many people ask me to suggest a song that is fitting for the Bride & Father dance or the Groom & Mother dance, and there are some nice general selections that are fitting.

My best advice is to always ask your Father or Mother if THEY had a song in mind. It shows that you are thinking about their thoughts and this special dance, whether they have something in mind or not.

mother-and-son-dance

Remember that your parent has been thinking about this day longer than you have… it will mean so much more to them if you at least ask for their input.

You can find some suggestions for the Top 50 Parent Dances from our music database below:

I hope this makes selecting these songs easier and more enjoyable for you and your Father or Mother.
