THE BEST BRIDAL BRUNCH Part 2 with LJDJS Event Design and Entertainment

On November 15, 2015 LJDJ’s was at it again. Our 2nd annual bridal brunch was based out of our Belleville head quarters with an array of professional guest speakers consisting of Artist Makeup Academy, Mirage Artistic Photography, and Pure Ambiance NJ wedding planners just to name a few. Providing top-notch service LJDJ’s created an atmosphere for brides to reduce the stress they may be feeling as their day hastily approaches.
As per the past bridal brunch, the company holds itself to the highest possible standard of entertainment and design. The event went off without a hitch; guests enjoyed champagne, food, music and much more! This Bridal Brunch gave the brides an opportunity to experience and sample what these vendors have to offer and what they may see when dealing with the planning phase of their weddings. Brides were able to undergo free consultation meetings In order to find the trustworthy relationship between them and their vendors. We loved seeing our clients testing all of our great photo booths and new concepts for 2016 that LJDJs has.

That’s a guarantee!

The professional staff at LJDJ’s understands how much you’re looking forward to your special day and the team wants to meet your expectations. I would highly recommend stopping by when they host their next Bridal Event. With a various group of specialists you’ll definitely pick up some good advice for not only a wedding but also a Sweet 16 or Quinceanera.

Keep you eyes open for our BIG announcement for 2016!

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.
