The Top 10 Best Wedding Favors!

The Top 10 Best Wedding Favors!

 Have you ever been to a wedding where you came home with an awesome wedding favor? It probably made the wedding even more memorable. Are you planning a wedding and need some ideas on favors that your guests will actually like? Here are the Top 10 Best Wedding Favors that LJDJs compiled. Well, at least we think they are pretty rad!

  1. Photo Booth Photos

Keep your wedding day memories alive with a photo booth for your guests to enjoy. You have a couple of options with this. You can rent an actual photo booth where your guests can sit and snap some silly shots of themselves, or you can create a DIY photo backdrop and have your photographer take Polaroid’s of your guests that they can take home. If you have an open bar, this might be the best way for your sloshed guests to remember how much fun they had at your wedding. How about recording a VIDEO testimonial? We even have GREEN screen capabilities that will allow your guests to morph themselves in a customized background. You name it, we can design it. With todays high tech apps and more, our newest booth will give your event the most memorable experience like no other. Take a look!   https://vimeo.com/121378453

  1. Flip Flops

Just about everyone wears flip-flops at some point. And with weddings that have awesome music playing where the guests are tearing up the dance floor, flip flops are a great favor because people can put them on at the reception to be more comfortable. This is a great option for summer or beach weddings. Your guests are likely to wear their flops again once the fun is done.

  1. Personalized Champagne/Wine Corks or Drinking Glass

I’m not talking about putting the couple’s name on drinking glasses. I’m talking about putting each guest’s name on them. I attended the wedding of two good friends who did this and it was so creative! The flutes were used to make the wedding toast and now my husband, I, and even our toddler (for future use, of course) have our own champagne glasses with our names on them. We’ll never forget where these incredible flutes came from.  I forgot to mention, the corks are pretty cool to have. You never know when your going to finish your bottle of wine.

  1. Treats From a Take-Home Bar

Giving your guests a sweet to take home as a wedding favor is a wonderful thought. However, not everyone likes the same flavors. Setting up a take-home bar that offers a variety of treats is a good alternative. Provide little goody bags for your guests to fill up with their favorites. You can go with candy, marshmallows, even nuts, raisins and other snacks like goldfish or pretzels. You can have this option in addition to, or instead of a traditional wedding cake.

  1. Recipe Books

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your diet more diverse. I get sick of eating the same foods over and over. And while I’m admittedly a horrible cook (seriously, ask my husband), I still enjoy trying new recipes. Even if you aren’t an avid cooker, a recipe book is a cute wedding favor that may come in handy even if you think you won’t use it often. If the recipes come from the bride and groom, or important people in their life, that makes the favor even more special.

  1. S’mores/Hot Chocolate

Unless you have a screw loose, or you are allergic to chocolate, you have to admit that s’mores are one of the best winter treats. Heck, they are one of the best treats, period. So if you’re having a winter wedding, your guests will love receiving all the fixins for making s’mores, or even some hot chocolate mix. Don’t just warm their hearts with your love, warm them with your wedding favor. Awwww….so cute.

  1. Junk Trucks or Drunk Trucks

Think your guests are stuffed from an evening of great food? Not when they come outside and see our exclusive JUNK/DRUNK TRUCKs. Choose from your favorite snacks including Dunkin Donuts, White Castle burgers, McDonalds and/or any fast food chain restaurant goodies. Have your guests ransack our snack truck to satisfy their munchies. Want a more personalized experience. Ask our staff about upgrading to some of your favorite foods.

  1. Personalized Wine Bottles

You can’t really go wrong by giving people alcohol as a gift. Wine is known for being a classy and sophisticated way to show people appreciation. That’s why people often bring wine as a small gesture when going to a dinner party. So a personalized wine bottle makes a great wedding favor. You can find inexpensive wine bottles and create custom labels to put on them. In fact, mini wine bottles are really cute and the perfect size to use as wedding favors. You can either put your name and wedding date on the label, or put each guest’s name. It could double as both a wedding favor and a seating card. How creative and unique is that?

  1. Homemade Goodness

While candy wedding favors can be hit or miss, small jars of a homemade sauce or spice are usually a big hit. Even for guests who don’t do a lot of cooking, a specially made edible delight is something they will enjoy. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a jam, or a uniquely flavored olive oil, your guests are sure to love taking home a special, one-of-a-kind indulgence.

The 10 Dumbest Wedding Party Favors!

The 10 Dumbest Wedding Party Favors

 

If you’ve ever been to a wedding, you probably went home with a wedding favor. But have you ever received one that was just dumb? One that you would never use and didn’t want to take home with you? If you’re planning your wedding, don’t be the couple that hands out stupid favors. Here are 10 wedding favors not to give your guests- ever.

 

  1. Monogrammed Coasters

Monogrammed coasters? Really? Your wedding guests do not want to set their beer on a coaster with your initials and/or wedding date on it. Not to mention, it might not match their home decor or style.

  1. CD of Wedding Songs

First of all, many people have transitioned into digital music formats and don’t even listen to CDs anymore. But also, your guests don’t have an emotional attachment to the songs that symbolize your relationship with your spouse.

  1. Framed Name Placecards

Some people like to get fancy and use framed name place cards to indicate where their wedding guests will sit. That’s fine, if you want to do that. But don’t double up and use those place cards as wedding favors. What on earth will people do with them after the wedding?

  1. Monogrammed Golf Balls

Unless you know that all of your wedding guests are avid golfers, don’t give any wedding favors that have to do with the sport. Those golf balls will just end up in the trash…and some random Arnold Palmer wannabe might dig it out and get his golf game on with your name and wedding date flying across the green.

  1. Bubbles

It’s fine to hand out bubbles for your wedding guests to blow as you make your exit after the reception. But nobody wants to take them home. When are grown men and women going to blow bubbles again?

  1. A Charity Donation

Couples of the philanthropic mindset might want to make a charity donation in their guests’ honor. The problem is, your guests might not support your charity of choice. And they will probably then start receiving tons of correspondence from that charity. Want to anger some wedding guests? Make a donation in their name.

  1. Flower Seeds

Maybe you love to garden. But maybe your wedding guests don’t. Even if flower seeds match the theme or season of your wedding, don’t tell your guests “thank you” with a cheap bag of something they might not use.

  1. Anything With Photos

Your wedding guests love you, but not the way you love your spouse. They don’t need anything with your photo on it. That’s creepy, actually. Save your favorite photographs for your living room, not the wedding reception tables.

  1. Magnets

Even if all of your wedding guests use magnets, they don’t need one with your wedding info on it. It’s your special day, not theirs, so they don’t need a reminder staring them in the face every time they open the refrigerator.

  1. Votive Candles

These are one of the most common wedding favors given. But if your wedding guests wanted votive candles, they would buy some. If you imprint your initials/name/wedding date on the candles, your guests won’t want to burn them. And a candle with nothing on it…how impersonal and cheap.

Santa Pays a visit to LJDJS!

Santa Pays a Visit to LJDJS!

T’was the week before Christmas, and all through the town not a party was stirring like LJDJS HOLIDAY PARTY! It is that time of year and what a better way to celebrate holiday cheer than to bring good old Saint Nick to town?

The room was filled with festive décor and popular movies playing such as “Elf” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. And with the super chilly weather we have been experiencing this year, we decided to have a Hot Chocolate Bar. The smell of cookies, truffles, brownies, and hot cocoa galore filled the air. Hard to resist all of that temptation!

Guests arrived dressed and ready for their close-up with Santa! Upon his arrival, the sound of sleigh bells ringing and a loud “ho ho ho” brought joy and smiles to everyone’s face. Santa sang holiday classics like “Jingle Bells”, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “Frosty the Snowman”, and all-time favorite “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”. Precious moments were captured on our Instagram wall. If you haven’t seen the photos, check it out @ljdjs and #Santalovesljdjs

Following the Meet and Greet with Santa event, the LJ crew was ready for the Company Party! We celebrated to a good year for the new LJDJS and toasted to many more. There was fun games and the occasional embarrassing moments. LOL. Nevertheless, we are thankful to have an amazing team and look forward to a fantastic year!

How to NOT get fired at your Company Holiday Party.

The holidays are here! As this joyous yet stressful time approaches so do holiday company parties. We’ve hosted many events this month and till this very day, we continue to see the same trend. We all have either been to one, or heard about the crazy behavior it brings out in its employees. The number one reason why people get out of hand is not because of a bad raffle prize they won! Its the booze they consume. So let us tell you what DJs and event planners see on the dance floor and how to not get fired at your holiday company party.

First, don’t get so wasted that a picture of you becomes an internet meme. A meme is a humorous image that spreads over the internet with changing words mocking the victim. Being a meme makes you an f-list celebrity in which you would never be able to live down that embarrassing moment at your company holiday party. Don’t pass out in the office bathroom with your bare ass showing, so the office jackass doesn’t snap a picture and ruin your life.

If you like the idea of being a Kim Kardashian of the web where your dream has always been to “break the internet” then by all means go ahead and make a literal ass out of yourself and risk getting fired.

drunk-girls-meme

The next subject is attire. It may be acceptable to get smashed off of egg nog, but it doesn’t mean your outfit should be revealing just because the other rules of professionalism are being alleviated for the evening. An office party should not turn into the game of “who whore it best.”

This applies more so to the women who want to show off their ass-sets to finally get so-and-so’s attention from another company department. Don’t!!! Stay away from the idea of an office romance, because when you both wake up you’re both going to have to deal with a lot of awkwardness.

Sure the egg-nog loosens up some tension, but it shouldn’t loosen up your lips. A few months later it is almost certain you will hear, “Remember when Bob and Karen were tongue punching on the bosses’ desk?”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooUcApOAzSk

Go ahead and get tipsy, but don’t be a drunk mess. You are still in the presence of your company so class should still be upheld. You still want your job on Monday morning, don’t get fired! No one will respect you the next day when you were running down the hallway naked with nothing but a Santa hat on.

It is more than acceptable to get a little loose, but don’t take it too far. Stay classy and covered up. So don’t get fired at your Company Holiday party. Keep your tongue in your mouth. Don’t wind up as an internet meme. Just show up, show some personality and at least wait to the after party at the bar down the street to get hog wild.

West Coast DJ Entertainment Experience!!!

It is mentioned that there are two main factors that make a great party: the food and the music. For any wedding couple, they want to make sure their night is memorable and their guests are happy. How far would you go to hire the right entertainment for your special day? Would you just stick around to what is available in your local area? Or would you go cross-country?

Pauline and Chris were recently married at the Luxe Hotels in Los Angeles, California. After seeing Jack Bermeo’s performance at a wedding in 2008, they immediately new that he was the one to help create their wedding dream. Five years later, the couple reached out to LJDJS, hoping to book Jack for their wedding day. Pauline had so much fun planning with Jack, she even stated “Even if I wasn’t marrying Chris, I would have hired you to do my future wedding.” as she chuckles and laughs.

#PaulineandChris2014

Jack mentions “What makes this wedding even more special, is that the guests and couple… didn’t treat their vendors like paid employees. They made all the vendors feel like we were family. This made all the planning process and visions come to life more genuinely.”   LJDJs hosts several destination events a year from Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia just to name a few. Since the west coast exposure, Los Angeles is starting to look more like a second office thanks to our large Latino and Philippino clientele base.

LJDJs also had the honor working with Susan Tosounian of Especially for You Event Planning Services. Susan’s attention to details was on point and truly noticed by our staff and our couple.

IMG_5251IMG_5250

So the questions remain…. How far would you go to hire the right entertainment for your special day? Let is provide the east coast energy and give the west coast entertainment a twist in entertainment.

 

How far will men go to propose?

Since the posting of the video “Fake Wedding, Real Engagement”, we here at LJDJS have been receiving attention from soon to be grooms of all ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations looking for new-age proposal ideas, and questions of “How can I plan my proposal?”  This motivated our company to create a division to help plan real engagements!

The video has been featured by Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, People, Yahoo, and other large social news sites.

IMG_5179

So the question remains, How far will men go to propose? Before you consider asking your loved one for his or her hand in marriage, have a seat. Let’s talk. We want to get to know you. We have our happy couples fill out an e-survey. Making sure we get every detail possible. For 17 years we focused on couples who are already engaged and are seeking entertainment for their special day. Since this viral hit we had to change gears on our inquiry towards our grooms to be. It’s great hearing first hand what goes through the mind of men and even some woman for their proposal ideas. Here are some sample questions we like to ask.

What makes him or her laugh? Sense of humor reveals a lot about a person. More than you think. It’s a universal language shared by everyone. A good sense of humor goes a long way in a relationship.

Where did you meet? The moment you first crossed paths with each other. Every story has it’s unique way of how it all began. Was it fate? Was it by coincidence? Or completely unexpected?

What was your first date like? Ahh the first date. Reminiscing on the beginning stages of the relationship. How the fire sparked and how you won the heart of your lover.

Do you remember the first time you said “I love you”? Was there something special about that moment that you wanted to re-create? Maybe it was in front of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, or while watching fireworks, or while on vacation in Italy.

What is his or her interests? This question can give a great proposal idea to what your partner loves to do. Can do a proposal in a sports arena, or on the rooftop of the MET, or at a Beyonce concert, or even on a tv show like Wendy Williams/ Ellen Degeneres.

 In the entertainment industry, clients are always looking for something new and innovative to make an everlasting impression.  Since we caught the attention of many soon to be fiancés. We have a full time staff with many creative proposal ideas to fit everyones personality. We are thrilled to assist those willing to let us help, but most importantly, making your proposal just as important as your Wedding Day! That is why we are so proud to have Kandy Cardoso, our event designer at LJDJS to help create those amazing proposals for men/women planning their important day. Can this be the new trend? Only time will tell!

Just some off beat ideas.

THE 5K ENGAGEMENT PLAN: Maybe you can propose to your partner at the end of completing a 5K because you both enjoy athletics. When she turns around… she will then discover that the entire 5K was all of her friends and family.

HAUNTED PROPOSAL: Perhaps you can propose to your partner in a haunted house because they love the concept of the paranormal, and have family and friends come in dressed as ghouls surrounding you in a corner and then bam.

MEDIEVAL KNIGHT PROPOSAL: What if you played the knight of shinning armor at Medieval Times while your girlfriend is hanging out with her girlfriends watching a dramatic fight. Then the knight walks towards his girlfriend and then unveils his mask in front of everyone.

Here is link to the Top Ten Extreme Engagement Videos! 

The sky is the limit for such ideas and eccentric notions are allowed. A proposal should be about the couple who is getting engaged and we support elaborate and unique ideas to the max just as much as the normal ideas.

We would love to hear more about your BEST PROPOSAL EVER, so feel free to comment and share with us.

HAPPY PLANNING!

The Most Creative Proposal EVER!

The Wedding Proposal Idea

          Imagine: A woman standing on a beach while here face is being angelically lit by the champagne pink sunset flashing its glorious glow. Just then, as she is staring into the distance of nature’s beauty her soon to be husband gets down on one knee and proposes. Also keep in mind the thoughts of being barefoot amongst sand, the white clothes, and the most other stereotypical thoughts a beach proposal would be comprised of. The word stereotypical lies in the previous sentence because a beach proposal is now sadly stereotypical. It has been done before, and it floats around social media like a bag in the wind. Time itself and social media has made some of the “classic” wedding proposals just a sad “cliché” in a world begging for attention with an X-factor. Some examples of the classic proposals include but are not limited to, asking: at the first place the couple went on a date, at a family gathering in a nice restaurant, on a picnic date, on a major holiday such as Christmas, etc. (Just Blahhh)

Nonetheless: Rejoice! New age wedding proposals are upon us.

          New age proposals are beginning to pop-up everywhere with elaborate setups and weeks of planning that were needed to make the event happen. They are now viewable on sites such as YouTube making so many people smile and rejoice that love is alive in such a grand way. One example of a new age proposal is the dance flash mob engagement where elaborate choreographed setups in the middle of large public places commence where the proposal will happen. Another new age idea is at a movie theater where a trailer is the engagement question to an unexpected soon to be bride thinking she was just going to the movies with her boyfriend. After she says yes, unbeknownst to her, she turns around and sees all her family and friends sitting in the audience which adds even more of a dramatic beauty to the experience making the whole setup priceless. Those are just two small examples of new age proposals; however, one just recently happened at an LJDJS event involving a spectacular undertaking and flawless execution. Not to mention the owner of www.LJDJS.com , Jack Bermeo, was the man who asked his girlfriend Sophia to be his bride.

IMG_4907

The Wedding Proposal Idea: Ask Sophia to be married at another wedding.

        In this moment you may be slightly confused, which is understandable to anyone not accustomed to the new age of exciting proposals, but here is a quick yet elaborate breakdown. The set up began ONLY seven days in advance when actor Daniel Micucci begun playing his role of coming back into town as one of Jack’s “friends from the clubbing days.” Daniel made his “reappearance” at Jack’s son’s first birthday party, where he pretended to have conversations with the people in the room “he hadn’t seen in so long.” Eventually, he made his rounds and spoke to Sophia about his fictional and elaborate back story of how he is having a wedding reception in New Jersey, but having a small ceremony in New York City with his soon to be husband. His New York home and career was the reasoning of him leaving his friends for a few years, and of course good ol’ Jack and his family would be invited to come to his wedding reception. It was a potentially difficult sell, but after the birthday party had ended the plans were right on track as Sophia expected nothing suspicious. On a side note, yes, you heard right. The fake wedding reception was for that of a gay couple. Being that love is love no matter what, LJDJS had no fear in pushing the fading societal norms and welcoming the new age ideology for this event. A few weeks after the first birthday party setup, it was show time. The event was set to happen in Woodridge N.J at The Fiesta. (www.fiestabanquets.com) Upon first walking into the venue, actors Christopher Ghanem and Micucci’s faces were on a giant blown up fake engagement photo. Upon turning the corner past the table with fake name cards into the lavishly decorated room with beautiful floral center pieces a fake four tier wedding cake (done by Sarah Belote and Daniel Micucci at The http://www.gourmettouchbakery.com at Liberty Corner N.J.) was perched high on a satin covered table in a side corner. As the music played during cocktail hour by a violinist, so did large video screens playing a collage of the grooms from younger years to when they first met each other. Of course all was captured by our AWESOME friends at MPW Media Group.

 (Fake Wedding Cake)

        The fake bridal party was made up of friends, family, and complete strangers who were all wearing matching corsages, and colors. The grooms were dressed in pink Tuxedos looking “fabulous.” When Jack and Sophia arrived to the event and entered the room admiring the fake engagement photo, the actors began working the room. They said hello to every person there like they had known them for years, and alas it was time to greet Sophia. The conversation was vague, but poignant leaving off with a, “so glad you could make it” as Ghanem smiled and walked away. The bridal party then left the room to make their entrance. As the DJ called out names the bridal party entered the room being introduced as bridesmaids, groomsmen, and family. We even purposely asked one of the bridesmaid to trip two times to deter from the perfection factor making the reception more realistic. Finally, it was time for Ghanem and Micucci to have their first dance. Their names were called and they walked onto the floor initially dancing for fun, but then got more serious when All of Me by John Legend began to play. The grooms slow danced, smooched, and pretended to tear selling the audience, but more importantly Sophia. About thirty seconds into the playing of the song the DJ asked all members attending the wedding to join the grooms on the dance floor, in which everyone did. The entire crowd danced for a moment and then slowly moved out to the edges leaving only Jack and Sophia standing center stage. At this moment, the video screens switched over to photos of Jack and Sophia, simultaneously while the couple’s true friends and family began sneaking out of the side door from the upstairs. As Sophia and Jack were entangled in a moment of passion, dry ice rolled over the dance floor making it appear as if the couple was dancing on a cloud. That is when Jack whispered words to Sophia and got down on his one knee and asked for her hand in marriage. It took a few moments for Sophia to understand the surprise occurring, but she accepted which brought the room to tears of joy. After the acceptance of the ring she turned around seeing her friends and family who were flew in from Las Vegas which brought on an even deeper level of beautiful emotion in the room. From that moment on it was the surprise engagement party for Jack and Sophia. With an elaborate setup, a great group of cooperative people, and the use of The LJDJS company a modern day wedding proposal was accomplished. From the defiance of societal norms about a gay couple to the ultimate surprise of proposing at someone else’s wedding it was exciting and will be spoken about for a lifetime amongst the participants. It was not just a moment: it was an experience.

In conclusion, congratulations Jack and Sophia.

The ability to bring joy to their clients is always their main prioritization. Personalized approach is an understatement. No phone call or request is ever ignored from a client as LJDJS is a proud believer in accommodating the client to the utmost possible degree.

Gibraltar Hardware and LJDJS create a buzz at DJ EXPO 2014

Gibraltar and LJDJS are in the works of a groundbreaking undertaking in the form of an endorsement. Gibraltar is a company that specializes in making various drumming hardware. Pulled directly from their website.

“We’re not into maple, beech or birch. We’re not drum builders. We’re not into bronze alloys and hand hammering. We’re not cymbal-smiths. We are Gibraltar. And Gibraltar is hardware. This undeniable focus makes us better at what we do and who we do it for. No matter what brand of kit you play, Gibraltar supports them all. Rock Solid isn’t just our slogan. It’s our mission.” (http://www.gibraltarhardware.com/?fa=hardware)

This year at the 2014 Atlantic City DJ Expo, two-time winner of DJ of the year (2011 and 2012) Jack Bermeo, and percussionist and friend Crystal Vargas put their talents together where the International Hardware Company Gibraltar took notice and worked closely with the duo beginning a new entrepreneurial journey into helping create a buzz for Gibraltar’s new line called “DJ Racks”.

A quick statement to express what the DJ Expo is:

“In 1990, DJ Times first presented DJ Expo—and 24 years later, it remains the industry’s longest-running and best-attended trade show. Each August, DJ Expo presents more than two-dozen educational seminars, an exhibit hall jammed with the latest DJ-related gear, and three evenings of sponsored events. This year’s show, set for Aug. 11-14 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J., will bring all of this and more!” http://www.djtimes.com/thedjexpo

The flair of a fiery percussionist with the beats of a new age DJ was a sound that can only be best described by seeing for yourself. As you may already know, “DJs are todays Rock Stars!”

The reason why this is so exciting is because Gibraltar is seeing the artistry of the duo DJing, considering Jack Bermeo and Crystal to be called a DJ Artist. At the expo this was the hardware companies first time to ever make an appearance for something in the field of DJing. Making an appearance was a field test experiment for Gibraltar, just as the artist duo’s combination of lavish beats was; however, the entrepreneurial risk taken to make this happen was well worth it. People were smiling and enjoying the infectious music while DJs admired the hardware that held Bermeo’s set. We wish Gibraltar a lot of luck with their new product. We know it will be a big hit in the DJ industry and we look forward being part of Gibraltars growth.

In time we will see where this exciting experimentation will take the two companies. Gibraltar is considering Jack Bermeo to be put on their website roster making him the first DJ to ever be labeled as an artist for their company.

Only time and hard work will be able to show the world what LJDJs and Gibraltar will be able to develop together, but it’s more than just excitement for LJDJs to be stepping into the direction of growth, as it is also solidifying the relevance and artistry of what it takes to truly be a good DJ.
