Call in to speak with the host
Justin Prahar of Sounds 2 Go knows how to get a wedding reception started: by keeping his mouth shut. “You have that table out front that allows people to look through your song list and write down what they want to request,” The Wedding Planner host Justin Buettner tells the DJ. “I like that because it removes the apprehension of having to approach you. A lot of guests don’t want to talk to a stranger. And they don’t necessarily recall some favorite song from years ago, but when they’re flipping through your list, they’re like ‘Wow, that song would be awesome.’ It really helps shape the reception.” Speaking of which, the always humble Justin is more concerned about the overall event than his own contribution. “I always have extra copies of my itinerary on hand to share with other vendors so we can be on the same page—stuff like when we’re doing the cake cutting and when we’re doing the father-daughter dance.”
It's good to talk.
