Shall We Dance Entertainment
J.D. answered a Craiglist ad I posted outlining all the terms I wanted including the max amount I wanted to pay. 2 weeks before the wedding J.D. tried to get an extra $350 dollars out of me and claimed he was already giving me a 50% discount, even though he is the one that answered my ad and agreed to do it for the price I quoted. He then showed up an hour late the day of, started our grand entrance music in the wrong spot so we didn't get to do our whole dance, and he was unable to say one of our goomsman's name correctly even thought he was corrected numerous times. To top it all off, my husband got severly ill right as the food was set down and I had to take him to the hospital where he spent the next 5 days. I gave the rest of J.D.'s money to my sister to give to him after his contracted time was up yet I got a phone call about an hour before he was supposed to end from my bridesmaid stating that he was going around to all our bridal party asking where his money was. Needless to say he did not recieve a tip nor will he recieve any future business from me or my guests, as they all argreed he was a rubbish DJ anyhow.

Shall We Dance EntertainmentThis bride was difficult from the beginning. I was informed the day before the wedding I needed to be at the venue to set-up 3 hours prior to the ceremony, hence my asking for "wait time" and lodging compensation. When she refused, I took it upon myself to make special arrangements with the venue to avoid the early reception set-up. Upon arrival, I inquired as to why there was negativity in the air and was informed that her make-up artist was a "no-show." So she was irrate before the festivities even started, literally making the groom sick. Although I arrived a little behind schedule due to two traffic accidents, I still managed to be set-up and start the reception ON TIME. I simply asked the Best Man and Maid of Honor for the balance due as the Bride and Groom had abruptly left the reception for the hospital. As for the introductions for the Grand Entrance, I suggested first names only as the names were hard to pronounce, of which the bride rejected leaving me no choice but to try. In my many years in the industry, this particular bride was THE FIRST "unhappy one." If your make-up artist didn't show and your hubby got sick and had to leave you'd be pretty upset too.
