Where’s the Party?

It may seem like a stupid question. Surely the party is at the venue you've chosen, right? WRONG! Where YOU are is way more important than you think!

So it’s your wedding day.  Months if not years of prep have gone into making this day the very best it can be.  All your friends and family are there, some of them you may not have seen for a while and before you know it, you’ve spent the whole day talking and the DJ is playing the last song.  I get it.  It’s important to be social, after all, it’s good manners, right?

I want to use this article to make you think a little bit differently so imagine we’re having the following conversation a few days before your wedding…

ME: So who is the wedding for?
YOU: Us!
ME: Right!

ME: And what is this day all about?
YOU: Us!
ME: Right!

ME: Why is everyone there?
YOU: Us!
ME: Right!

ME: Where’s the wedding party?
YOU: Buxted Park Hotel
ME: Wrong!

The party is wherever YOU are.

If you’re at the bar, that’s where the party is.

If you’re outside smoking, that’s where the party is.

If you’re sitting at a table, that’s where the party is.

If you’re in the photo booth, that’s where the party is.

If you’re busting some moves on the dance floorthat’s where the party is!

Your guests are there for YOU.  You are the reason they are there.  They want to be seen with you, laughing with you, in the photo booth with you and they certainly want to be on the dance floor with you.  Some of the best parties I’ve DJ’d at are the ones where the Bride & Groom can be seen ripping up the dance floor to their favourite tunes.

If you’re out there having fun on the dance floor, your guests will be more likely to join you, even the ones who never dance!

Think about putting together a party crew, a few of your friends who like to party hard.  The ones who will have your back if you do end up being pulled away talking to your guests.  Being on the dance floor is just as important as the songs the DJ is playing.
