Herzlichen Glückwunsch zur Verlobung!

I received a wedding request by e-mail recently for a wedding in New Jersey. I responded in the usual way and received a reply that the couple is currently living in Germany. The Brides is from NJ and was planning her wedding from half way around the globe.

Skype to the rescue!
We scheduled a Skype meeting so we could communicate easily, see one another, and best of all… it was free. You have to love technology and the way that it works it’s way into our daily lives.

Speaking of technology, the couple can also plan their wedding online with their very own Event Planning Website that each Masters Group client has access to. It includes a Wedding Planning Form, Wedding Event Timeline, and an Online Music Database that integrates with iTunes for listening to song samples.

Congratulations on your engagement!

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.


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.
