We get this question a lot. Ultimately it depends on if you need the DJ for just your reception or for both your ceremony and reception. Typically for a reception it’s about 5 hours but some will only do 4 hours to shave costs. If adding a ceremony then an average amount of time is 6 hours for both your ceremony and reception however we also have seen 5 hours for both to help shave costs.
For a typical reception the DJ provides the following services…
1. Background music during cocktail hours 2. Introductions 3. Background music the greeting line (if any) 4. Provides microphone for blessing (if any) 5. Excuses guests to buffet or asks them to take their seats if a plated meal 6. Background music for dinner 7. Slide show (if you have one) 8. Toasts 9. Cake Cutting 10. Bride/Groom first dance 11. Father/Daughter Dance 12. Mother/Son dance 13. Wedding party dance (if any) 14. Open dancing for all guests for about 30 minutes 15. Money Dance (if needed) 16. Anniversary dance (if wanted) 17. Bouquet/Garter Toss 18. Reverse Garter (if requested) 19. More dancing for everyone 20. Last dance 21. Send-Off (if you have one)
If you include the ceremony then this is what’s typical of the DJ:
1. Prelude music 30 minutes to start of ceremony as guests are arriving and being seated waiting for the ceremony to start. 2. Processional song for the wedding party 3. Processional song for the bride 4. Possible music in middle of ceremony for unity sand or other similar event 5. Recessional music for bride, groom and wedding party after being introduced as husband and wife.
As you can see there are a lot of different things to consider. Wedding ceremonies usually only need one hour for everything from the prelude music all the way to the recessional song at the end. Receptions typically require 2 hours of background music for cocktails and dinner and then 3 hours of dancing and everything in between.
Richard was very professional in his arrival (prompt), set-up (self-directed), show (“Lit”, the kids said), and departure (quick, clean, and efficient). He left no mess. He played all the songs my daughter and her friends wanted to hear, and he did it with a good flow that had them dancing the whole time. He kept himself out of the spotlight and made the event about the kids. Best Sweet 16 Party ever! Oh, and his fee was very, very, extremely reasonable, compared to other quotes we obtained! This is a good guy who will work hard to make your event succeed!
Meet the the modern bride—she’s more irreverent than ever before.
This look is all about a major dose of attitude and edge. Take an irreverence and laissez-faire attitude to dressing for the aisle, then amp it up even further with a punk flair if you’re feeling extra. Per Vera Wang’s latest anniversary collection, Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2020 show, and Alexander McQueen’s latest showing for Spring 2020, this look promises that you’ll look all too cool, while still giving off an effortless vibe. Infuse hints of black, opt for ’80s-inspired touches, embrace sheer elements, shorter lengths, and slits. Now, put them altogether; this is for the bride looking to merge romance with rebellion.

With 2019 winding down (we know, it’s only September, but with the way time flies December is just around the corner) it’s time to look to the future and do some trend forecasting for what will be hot for 2020 weddings
FLOWERS “Colour will be huge in 2020! We are seeing a lot of sunset palettes—rich peaches, deep fuchsia, reds and corals. Also the use of unexpected materials like dried elements such as field grasses, leaves, and even dried flowers, and unexpected palettes incorporating yellows, browns. There will be a big shift away from more traditional palettes. There will also be a move towards blooms that have been out of rotation for a while like lilies, carnations, and anthurium. These are coming back in style because they are the new ‘different’ and when used in the right way in a sophisticated palette, they can be so beautiful and unique. When it comes to ceremony set ups and reception spaces, it will be all about making the most of the natural space in new and exciting ways—think of an installation in an unexpected corner, or creating more of a natural arch from the ground up rather than a classic arch, which is beautiful of course, but each couple really wants something curated for them and something that hasn’t been seen yet. Getting artful with your florals is definitely happening for 2020!” —Mackenzie Zufelt, wedding coordinator, Wild North Flowers, 2019 Wedding Florist winner
Cuvier Park, also called The Wedding Bowl, is a small park located at Coast Boulevard and Cuvier Street in La Jolla. It is located directly across the street from the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art. The park site is about five steps below street level so it is hard to see from the street. It is the most popular spot for weddings along the La Jolla coastline.
Take state Route 52 west to La Jolla Parkway, and continue as the street becomes Torrey Pines Road. Turn right on to Prospect Street and then right on to Cuvier Street. Street parking only.
Note: Site is permitted for weddings but not for receptions. Only one permit per day is issued for this site. Permits issued for wedding ceremonies are allotted up to four hours, including the set up and breakdown.
