Hey Mr Dj

Posted on July 8, 2013 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey Mr. Dj! This has become a common phrase at events, weddings, parties, and other ceremonies where a dj is present. There is such a thing called “etiquette”, yes even when it applies to the Dj.

The bride at most weddings decide on the music and communicate to the dj. Brides if you hiring the dj you should:

1. Choose the first couple dance song

2 Choose the father/daughter dance song

3. Choose the type of music most favorable for your guests please include that one unique couple or friends that have a different flavor of music.

4. Music should be appropriate, the sound should reach the ears of all guest.

5. Line dance is so fashionable; let the dj know which line dance songs are for your guests.


The dj at an event, party has certain responsibilities, the coordinator or presenter or individual of the party should:

1. Choose and communicate with the dj the types of music expected and favorable for the event.

2. A sound check should be performed by the dj.

3. Choose your line dances.

The don’ts of all events, ceremonies, parties:

1. Do not approach the dj saying “I do not like that song do not play it again”. Discuss this with the host, coordinator, bride or wedding planner. Remember there may be other guests loving the song.

2. Do not send your child up to the dj to request a song.

3. If you have arrived several hours late or are leaving early and want to hear a particular song ask the host, coordinator, wedding planner, bride, if the song has been played, will be replayed or is on the list.

It is a celebration; let everyone enjoy a tap and a shake to the beat in respect to one another and to the Dj.

Bridal UP! Dress for a Memory

Posted on June 17, 2013 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)


I know these sounds like a bride going for a ride and not a marriage. I am with concern and indeed would like to know exactly what some brides are riding on their wedding day.

I recently was permitted to view several brides appearing to the justice of peace for marriage for two days and I was amazed at the attire.

I am aware many DIY brides are working with a limited budget, but really. You can purchase a nice sun dress, nice shoes for a budget of 100.00 or less. Just because you are not walking down an aisle does not mean you should not dress for a memory.

Getting married is a day of joy, love, happiness with a memory of a life time.

Brides dress for a memory, that dress you wear monthly is a no, no. The suit you wear to work is a no. I do believe in worship of the higher being, yes being God but you are not going to church service so let’s avoid that attire too.

Think of this dress for a memory, look sexy but not with an over exposure of skin and you know what that means, if not I will share. Do not have your boobs on the edge about to pop out, nor should your butt cheeks be peeping.

Purchase or have your BFF help with a bouquet, yes we are creating a memory. Your make-up should be fabulous; your shoes should be comfortable just in case there are several brides being married on the same day.

To all brides waiting in line, I may be looking at you so PLEASE help me create this beautiful memory of you, “the beautiful bride”

Planning A Wedding Without Planning

Posted on April 12, 2013 at 8:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Planning a wedding is not a day to day think about it. Planning a wedding is detailed.

Now let’s think have you or anyone you know just ran a 5 k the day of without weeks of preparation or an exercise routine, without preparing the mind for the change.

Planning a wedding has many details, but to be the most successful it is important to begin with “The Budget”. Once the budget is established every day of the planning you must refocus and look at the budget, this includes the dress also.

Establish a vision of the wedding, the reception, the first dance dress, the wedding stationery and please do not use email invites for the wedding or for save the date.

A few of the forgotten for the DIY bride are decorations, flowers, wedding favorites, and a bit more. Should you become overwhelmed, locate a wedding planner and erase the stress of planning and the possible forgotten

I am spreading love and success to all Diy brides in planning your wedding.

Wedding Day Prep

Posted on March 25, 2013 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)



It is the day of the wedding and you are wondering what to do, but you did not make a list and your anxiety level just broke the scale. What can you do?

There are several interventions the one I like is, hire a wedding planner. Now many brides do not know, but be aware there are many wedding planners for “day of service”.

Day of service will transfer your stress and anxiety to the wedding planner, allowing you to relax and enhance your beauty for the crowning of the queen, (which is you, the bride).

Otherwise get your pen/pencil ready, I have a list to assist in decreasing your day of anxiety.

1. Contact all your vendors, including your wedding party two days prior to, review all details and make changes or adjustments as need.

2. Contact your beauty glam squad, make-up artist, hair stylist to confirm appointments and the time you should be ready to walk down the aisle.

3. Your wedding party should know exactly their arrival time and it is not a few minutes prior to the wedding march. If you are dressing at the venue of the wedding then have everyone I the party to arrive an hour in advance. Yes an hour this allows time for touch ups, repairs.

4. Have a kit handy with thread, needle, scissors, buttons, comb, two sided tape, anisteam iron (not as mandatory but good for wrinkled cloth), stain remover stick, lip gloss, deodorant. Depending on hair style hair pins.

5. There are make-up artist that will present and stay as long as needed, if you choose this service be specific on the hours needed, especially if reception prep glam is needed.

6. Confirm the honey moon details and now relax and think only of LOVE.

To the bride of preparation and relaxation, I send love.

The LOVE Day ?Valentines

Posted on February 13, 2013 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

There are so many ways, so many words that state “love” on this dedicated day 14th February.

However you share it and to that special individual I suggest you give your ultimate attention of gratitude of “Love”.

I am asking to all individuals to share love to your relatives, close friends and everyone you come in contact with this Valentine’s Day. No, you do not have to tell a total stranger “I love you”, but how about a smile, a moment of patience for an elderly person in passing, opening the door, good morning to that co worker, or a thank you for deed extended to you, or share a flower with a co worker, the list goes on so Happy Valentine’s Day to all.

Planning Your Wedding, Are you Ready?

Posted on January 12, 2013 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Are you the DIY bride, wanting to take on the task of planning your wedding? The planning is just like a jig saw puzzle, putting the pieces together for a perfect wedding.

To begin planning your wedding it is necessary to know the end. The end being the look you want for that dream wedding. You must have that vision written down to maintain a focus, because in planning, it is so easy to deviate. Of course youmay want to change crystal centerpieces to floating candles just write the change down.

 Planning a wedding can be stressful, head up, pen in hand let’s plan a wedding.

 A beginning tool is a spread sheet detailing your entire wedding including your budget. For assistance in developing your spread sheet, log onto www.juanitasenchantment click on DIYBride.


You rbudget may require adjusting as you plan; as may be true of your vision of having a dream wedding.  Adjusting is just that, readjust, and not redo your wedding. Adjust your budget to your wedding not your wedding to your budget. 


Does this sound a bit confusing, I will explain- if your parents are paying for the wedding and the budget requires many adjustments, it may be time to seek that part time job, or ask your fiancé for assistance.  We reside in the 21st century sometimes tradition may require change.


To all DIY brides 2013, congratulations!

A Fall Wedding is Beautiful, What Is Your Vision ?

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I am enjoying sharing suggestions of a fall wedding. I have recently communicated with several brides wanting a fall wedding but really believe a wedding only shines in the  Spring or Summer. I disagree, your wedding is about you, the bride, just as you plan choose your season.

This Is Your Wedding

Posted on October 15, 2012 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Being a bride is a warm feeling and frustration, there will be so many decisions. There will be many inputs from mother, sometimes grandmother, your best friend as well as your new acquainted female friend. STOP! This will only add to frustration.

This is your wedding. Receive suggestions only will solicited.

If allowed everyone will have a suggestion or suggestions contradicting what your decision. The wedding will become not a fairy tale wedding of you but many fairy tales of many.

Be cordial to suggestions, listen only if you feel it is necessary be polite with thank you and verbalize you have made a decision. Do not begin a wedding with regret or with the thought of I can always do it again on a ten year anniversary, or my next wedding, REALLY?

No, do it now this is your wedding, a marriage to last for years negate the thought of another wedding and focus on longevity of one marriage. I do enjoy anniversary re-do.

You are the bride to be and this will be your day, your wedding, your fairy tale wedding and your day to exhibit your glam, happiness and beauty. Be You.

To a beautiful wedding and a beautiful bride I send love.

Creating You

Posted on September 26, 2012 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

This blog is different from my usual. I’d like to share a conversation I had with an extraordinary wedding coach. She is amazing and I adore and appreciate her, Tonya Shadoan.

In a recent conversation she asked about my “personal bucket”. I was at a loss at first as she explained many entrepreneurs forget about their personal bucket. This is the bucket of our personal time be it meditation (which can be done in many ways), exercising, reading, golfing, a day with friends, bubble bath, the list continues.

So whether you are a wedding planner, a DIY bride, a decorator, photographer, make-up artist or any entrepreneur, I’d like you to take a look at and in your “personal bucket”, see what level of “YOU” is in it. Let us all continue with our goals of success but not forget about ourselves.

I thank you much Tonya for sharing this phrase with me and to my readers and followers I send love to filling your “personal bucket”
