TODAY has a very informative article covering one of the latest style trends in dress codes. Instead of the normal black tie or semi-formal attire, brides and grooms are requesting very specific wardrobe styles.

Depending on the type of event, guests are being asked to dress in styles ranging from all white for a beach wedding, to bohemian chic for a rustic barn wedding, or the latest hot trend – the Gatsby era style for a high society wedding. Guests normally embrace this opportunity to feel like they are a part of the big day and get to play dress up.

So the next time you are invited to a wedding with a specific dress code request, go for it and enjoy the experience.

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!
