With today’s current event situation all may seem uncertain. Let’s start this article on a more relaxed note. Take a deep breath filling your lungs with air much like when in the doctor’s office. Now release all the air in your lungs and I mean all of it. Let’s begin…
Recently we wrote an article “Most Popular Wedding Dates for 2020-2021” this of course was before our current situation. A new challenge has arisen called change-date. Daily we are working with event planners, brides & grooms, and those having celebrations to move/reschedule their event date to one that not only is available for the venues their celebration will be held at but also the vendors they have secured. While this does cause challenges it also is quickly absorbing available dates.
For those that have not taken action to secure their new date will quickly find available dates are decreasing by the minute. If you haven’t changed/rescheduled your event now would be a good time to start.
Let’s speak to the “I have time before my event, wedding or party” group.” Time is something we cannot control, Father Time will always continue to move forward, with that said you are now competing with not those that have not secured their date with a venue and/or vendors, you’re also in the race with those rescheduling their events.
While seemingly unfair those rescheduling in most cases will have priority over others as they have already signed an agreement, paid their deposit or contract in full and have logistics in place with their vendors. This leaves the others scrambling to secure their date or moving it in most cases to a time that might be lesser desired then their original date that might be holding a significance.
Hope you found this article to help spark a reschedule process, or to begin moving forward with securing a venue, vendors and other items for your wedding, celebration or event. Our goal is to make the planning process as stress-free and accommodating as possible. Best wishes on your journey ahead. Electrolinear Entertainment’s #1 priority above all is the satisfaction of you and your guests!

Should you have an adults-only or invite kids to your wedding? It’s a question almost every couple struggles with at some point in their wedding planning. Whether you want to give them a spot at the reception or have them stay home with a sitter, it’s always a great idea to find a way to accommodate the children of your wedding guests. Here, are a few ideas that will be fun for the little ones and their parents.
For those who want to invite kids to their Wedding Reception, one of the hottest trends right now is a reception-within-a-reception just for kids. If you’ve got the budget for it, it’s a complete win-win! The little ones will have the time of their lives, while their parents will be free to party without guilt.
Depending on the theme of your reception you may want to hire a Kids Orientated Event Company to make a separate tent to look like your wedding theme (Beach, Ice Cave, Country, etc…). “We would recommend tricking out the tent with PlayStations or Xbox connected to Electrolinear’s Big Gaming Experience System. Craft Projects, Lego Mega building area, Giant Jenga, Sand Art Station, Super Hero Cape-Making, etc.…”
However, if you’re going the adults-only route, arranging off-premises babysitting is a considerate option that will smooth the way for parents—especially out-of-town guests. Do a Google search for local babysitter-referral services; they can connect you with caretakers who are CPR-certified and have passed background checks. Set up a playroom in a hotel suite close to the reception site, or, if you have a friend who’s willing, in a nearby (and child-proofed) home.
If kids are invited to your reception, but you can’t spring for a separate event for them, hire a local sitter to oversee the kids’ table or area (typical rate: $15 to $20 per hour). This way, your guests can party worry-free (and you can save them and yourself some money by having one sitter watch the group). Some ideas for this great direction is to make up some Activity Briefcases or Lunch Boxes, Wedding Themed Activity Books, Set up a Kids Only Tent.
How about hanging a piñata and not only letting just the kids but also the Bride and/or Groom get a few swings in with the kids! Corn hole Toss is always a blast or Wedding Ring Toss is easy with a few painted bottles and rings. I could go on and on with tons of awesome ideas, but I think you get the vision and most likely have imagined several options yourself.
Having kids at your wedding is not a challenge if you take a little time to plan out activities for them, the ideas are endless and will allow the adults to enjoy the reception without worries.

Our last post was a recommended timeline of when you should complete tasks during the journey leading up to your Wedding Day.
We have attended a few Bridal Shows/Expos over the last month and compiled a list of the most popular dates submitted by Brides and Grooms in Franklin County, Washington County, Frederick County and surrounding areas. For those that feel you still have plenty of time keep in mind, you are competing with thousands or pre-newlywed couples in the Four-States area for venues, photographers, videographers, wedding DJs, decorator, florist and many other vendors that work together seamlessly to orchestrate one of the biggest days in your life.
With that said naturally, the best vendors will be the most sought out first. As the date draws closer you’ll find it harder to book an available venue or vendor for your Wedding Day. The key is to help minimize the stress and anxiety that typically accompanies the Wedding Planning process.
Here are the most popular dates as of this article (6 or more requests per show):

If you’re looking to make all of the couples at your wedding feel special, you can set aside time to play the popular wedding anniversary dance to celebrate love and marriage. The Wedding Anniversary Dance always evoke a sentimental moment at a wedding reception as married couples are reminded of their own love. You can set the mood by choosing a variety of wedding anniversary songs that are easy to remember and well-known.
What Is The Wedding Anniversary Dance Tradition?
After the bride and groom dance, cake cutting, along with the father-daughter dance and mother- son dance, and a little open dancing you can have your DJ dedicate a song at your reception to the married couples in the room. This is a fun and special time during the wedding reception where married couples dance along to carefully selected anniversary song. Although this is a tradition for married couples at weddings, you can include non-married couples for a more modern take.
If you’d like to make things even more interesting, you can give a gift to the couple in the room that’s been married the longest. The wedding anniversary song should include all married couples in the room; as the song goes by, you ask couples that have been married the longest to stay on the dance floor in increments of five years. As the amount of married couples on the dance floor decreases, you can then lower your increment to one year (or as long as it takes to figure out the couple that has been married the longest). The last couple standing is the winner. If you would like the Bride and Groom has the option to be exempt, leaving the longest married couple and Newlyweds left on the dance floor. This is a sweet moment in the wedding reception that honors the purpose and union of marriage.
Wedding Anniversary Songs
Choosing the perfect wedding anniversary song depends on the atmosphere you want to create. If you’re looking to create a sentimental and romantic setting, you should choose a selection of ballads for a slow-dance segment. If you’re looking for dance-friendly songs that couples can have fun with, you should choose an upbeat or mid-tempo track to speed up the pace on the dance floor. Whether you’re building the perfect playlist for your wedding reception or looking to pair a song with anniversary wishes for your significant other, these love songs are some of the most popular and memorable of their genres.

Ensure you have good communication with your DJ and provide them with specific requests and song selections a week in advance of your wedding day. If you plan on sending out wedding thank you cards or wedding announcements, ask your photographer to capture a few of these sweet moments on the dance floor to include in a collage styled card. Although preparing for your wedding reception can seem stressful, remember to have fun with these moments during your wedding journey and cherish them as much as you can.
Congratulations on your Engagement!

MAKE SURE YOU
- Bring the rings.
- Instruct the Best Man to not keep the ring in his pocket.
- Wear something that’s also appropriate for your rehearsal dinner.
- If your groomsmen ask you what they should wear, make sure they don’t show you up. (i.e. if you’re in khakis and navy sports coat, they shouldn’t be in black Armani suits.)
- In advance, ask the officiant what he/she expects of you.
- If there are any kids, appoint someone to supervise, coral, and muzzle.
- Ensure all parties know when/where to show up.
- Double-check that the slacker groomsmen know the details.
- Try to do the rehearsal at the wedding site, if possible.
- Make sure that everyone has transportation to the wedding site.
- Large crowd? If so, consider arranging a microphone for the officiant.
- Check to make sure that the recorded music (if any) works.
- Check with the old people and make sure they have easy access to their seats.
- Figure out what happens next. Receiving line? Photos? You don’t want people to awkwardly stand around, make idle chitchat, and wonder what they should do.
- Remember to bring the rings.

Let’s talk about the cast of characters on your wedding day who does exactly what is going to be up to you because guess what if you’ve been reading our blog you probably know that I am all about making your wedding day a reflection of you.
If that means that there are a couple of guys on the traditionally gals side or vice a versa that does not make any difference. What makes a huge difference is that again your wedding day is a reflection of you, your loved ones and those people who are most important to you. That line up may result in something that doesn’t look the same as a traditional wedding or a traditional T.V. show wedding.
Guess what it doesn’t always happen that way and that’s fine. On in this article, I’m going to talk through that and hopefully help you to see you should embrace it and not be stressed out about it.
The first thing I want to talk about is a glossary of the people in your wedding party. Let’s talk about who these people are and some ways that their roles may vary depending on your situation. First, we have Your Honor attendants and these are traditionally called your maid or matron of honor and you’re best man. Now let’s pick this apart just a little bit. The first thing I mentioned the maid or matron. What is the difference between a maid of honor or matron of Honor? Simply, a maid is an unmarried woman a matron is a married woman. So if your sister is married then technically she would be your matron of honor. Whether or not you choose to adopt these titles is completely up to you, it’s a little bit old fashioned.
I’m going to use the gender-neutral honor attendants to talk about these roles, these people are your most trusted and important friends in your lives. I encourage you to follow your heart when choosing your honor attendants and if you simply cannot bear to choose between multiple people that’s fine. There are no hard and fast rules when you’re planning your wedding. The most important thing is that you are surrounded and supported by those people who are the very closest to you. I encourage you to embrace your individual situation. What does this mean? It means if you are a woman and your best friend for the past twenty plus years has been a man. Have him be your honor attendant, have him be your best person, have him be your man of honor. Or you may feel like you just want to keep things looking really traditional, You want the men on one side and you want the women on the other side. That’s fine too.
This is all about what makes you both feel comfortable and what you want in your heart, so if it does not sit right with you to have your male best friend standing next to you and being your man of honor and he does not want to play that roll, then put him on the groom’s side. It really doesn’t make a whole lot of difference and I can promise you that when you look back on your wedding day ten or twenty years from now this is not going to be important. It might be stressing you out right now trust me to embrace your individual situation,m embrace what you and your fiancee are most comfortable with and go with that. If it means guys and girls are mixed up on the sides that’s OK. It’s fine, just do what you want to do.
Moving on, behind Your Honor attendants are your wedding party. Traditionally these folks are referred to as your bridesmaids and your groomsmen. Of course, as we talked about before you can have gender neutral here. You can mix up the sides, have guys and gals everywhere it all depends on your situation. Symbolically these are the folks helping and supporting you and your fiancee’ under the lead of the honor attendants in the months leading up to the wedding.
So on the wedding day they may be assigned a specific jobs and roles even something as simple as “hey guys your job is to hit the dance floor and get the party started as soon as the D.J. cues up the music” you can ask them anything, it’s ok to ask your wedding party, you can assign them anything, you can ask them to help with anything that you might need.
If you’re doing a D.I.Y. wedding reception as I know many of you are you’re going to need help. So don’t be shy about asking people for the help and delegating them specific tasks and specific things that they can be in charge of. Your wedding party is a rich resource to you, they want to make your day as special as possible, so please feel free to lean on them and ask them for help.
Now let’s talk about your parents and your fiancee’s parents. Mother and Father of the bride and the groom, they will take the front row on the wedding day and you may choose to have your dad walk you down the aisle. I have heard from some who have chosen to give their mother this honor. Also, I have heard of asking both your mom and dad to escort you down the aisle.
Your parents play a really important role at the wedding and I encourage you to remember how special this day is to them and don’t hesitate to make them feel involved by giving them some responsibilities on your wedding day, just like I talked about with your bridal party. Traditionally, the Father’s will give toasts or speeches. Some variations on this would be leading a mealtime prayer. The father can also take the lead with things like tipping the vendors, addressing any service issues, so if there was something going on behind the scenes that needed to be addressed he would be in charge of that. You can really assign anything that you can think of.
So as you’re looking at bridal magazines and blogs and reading up on wedding planning you’re going to see these very traditional things that the dad does and that the mom does, again feel free to tailor to your situation and what you feel most comfortable.
Some dads might want to play bartender and others will be quiet and shy, or they might be a wallflower and totally stick to the sidelines. This is going to be very different depending on the personalities that you have in your lives and the same goes for the mothers. They are there for you and her role on the wedding day is entirely up to you. Everyone’s family relationship tree is unique, embrace that uniqueness rather than feel like you’re tied to traditional wedding roles and rules as for what your mom, in this case, is supposed to be doing.
Maybe your dad is the type of guy who is really shy, he does not want or like to be the center of attention but your mom would love to give a dinner toast or a speech and do the first dance with you and that is awesome! Don’t stress out about bending those traditional wedding “rules”.
Seriously your grandma could be the bartender your grandpa could lead the dance floor, it’s just all about embracing your family and loved ones and really making your wedding day a reflection of them and your relationships with those people.
In all seriousness I do hear couples who are experiencing a lot of stress over what people will think or say if, for example, they don’t do the first dance with their dad, or their mom walks them down the aisle instead of their dad, or they choose not to have little nieces and nephews involved as flower girls and ring bears they are worried about “what if my aunt is mad at me”, “What if my dad’s feelings are hurt” “will people assume this, if I do that” but those types of feelings, I do not want to brush that off I do understand there are a lot of eyes watching you and that can be really nerve-wracking. It can be stressful when you’re dealing with people who may be hurt or feel left out because of the choices that you are making.
The best advice I can offer you is to be upfront and honest with people. Make those decisions and follow your heart about who you truly want to be doing what.
These are roles that carry tradition and weight, but it is your day and guess what you get to be the leader, you get to decide who lands where and who does what. If you decide not to have flower girls and ring bearers and you feel like there might be some hurt feelings over that, address it head-on with a heartfelt and honest conversation. Pick up the phone meet for coffee whatever works, explain the reasoning behind your decision and ask for the understanding of whoever you feel like you might be letting down. Don’t let these things drag out in your head for months. It’s going to stress you out and weigh you down every single day.
Have confidence in your decision and address it straightforwardly and honestly with whoever it may be affecting or whoever you might feel like potentially would have hurt feelings over it. Whew! that was all a little rant, I really think it’s important to reiterate that you and your fiancee’ get to make the rules.
Onward and upward, so now you have your ring bearer and your flower girls, they will come down the aisle before the bride and again with these little people their roles are entirely up to you. I’ve seen lots of weddings where people incorporate their pets, so baby doggies might play these roles, they might walk down the aisle with pretend rings and flowers etc…
In addition think of some overflow roles that can be filled, in the event that you have a lot of close family and friends way too many people to realistically include in your wedding party some ideas for assignments include naming people honorary ushers, they can be included in all of the pre-wedding festivities if age appropriate and on the wedding day they would show guests their seats and could also fill miscellaneous jobs as necessary.
As mentioned earlier in the article, please don’t hesitate to roll out responsibilities to people so even if it’s not somebodies assigned traditional job or role don’t let that stop you. Ushers are a great opportunity to ask for help, and making people feel useful and important. You should not underestimate people. They want to feel useful and they want to help you. They want to make your wedding day as perfect as possible just like you do, so don’t hesitate to ask for help where you need it.
I hope this article was useful to you.

A budget begins with a guest list that informs most of your costs. Be prepared to spend the most (around 40 percent) on taking care of guests’ basic needs—that’s a venue, food, and beverage.” The remaining amount includes fixed costs like your photographer, videographer, and entertainment. Then, there’s the more logistical and arbitrary stuff—transportation, labor, lighting, stationery, and anything else you’ve deemed essential in the mix.
Use the handy guide below as a rough outline for spending breakdowns and adjust according to your priorities.
- Venue and Catering: 40 percent of your budget
- Photography and Videography: 15 percent of your budget
- Wedding Attire and Beauty: 5 percent of your budget
- Music/Entertainment: 10 percent of your budget
- Flowers: 10 percent of your budget
- Favors and Gifts: 2 percent of your budget
- Transportation: 3 percent of your budget
- Stationery: 3 percent of your budget
- Cake: 2 percent of your budget
- Decor: 10 percent of your budget
And keep these questions in mind: Is your dream venue (or that dress, or imported peonies, or whatever is currently weighing on your mind) non-negotiable for you? If it will put you over budget, cut down in another area that matters less to you. And if it isn’t a deal-breaker, then find another pick that you’re sure to love just as much.

Prior planning necessary for a memorable wedding can be quite stressful. From worrying about the guest list and keeping the in-laws happy, the wedding budget is always at the top of the list. According to a survey done by The Knot’s 2017 Real Weddings Study, Americans spend an average of over $33,000.
Factors such as wedding décor, the ceremony site, number of guests, wedding rings and even videography/photography. Needless to say, that some factors are necessary for the success of a wedding. Yet, there are some factors that a wedding can seamlessly do without and save on some money.
Research confirms that couples tend to get stressed on the day of the wedding. Yet, the main goal of a wedding is for you and your wedding guests to have fun. Beyond the pomp and the glamour, fun is what will make your wedding special and memorable.
That said, how do you bring fun back to an avenue that so desperately needs it? Well, with one simple solution: photo booth. There are numerous perks when it comes to incorporating a photo booth. Let us take a look at some of them.
Looking for a great way to entertain your guests? Then, why not consider a photo booth? It’s not only a great way to entertain your guests, but it’s cheap as well. You can be assured that your guests will love it, and will keep going back for more.
The fun props add an aspect of fun to the entire concept. People can get to dress up and laugh the evening away.
Capture the Joy
A professional wedding photographer, as important as they are, often focuses on the bride and the groom. Granted, capturing the special moments between the couple is imperative. Yet, the professionalism in such photography can often miss the joy surrounding the couple getting married.
A photo booth can help you capture those special moments of joy with your family and friends.
Admittedly, weddings often try to follow a certain norm. By doing this, most weddings often turn out as predictable and even boring. Incorporating a photo booth into your wedding can set your ceremony apart, hence, making it more memorable.
A sense of uniqueness with a blend of fun will undoubtedly make your wedding the talk of the town.
Fun For The Kids
A photo booth is versatile. In other words, both adults and children alike tend to enjoy it. It goes without saying that not every child enjoys going to a wedding. So, why not have them in mind while planning your wedding?
It will be a great distraction for them, plus it will help them kill time in a fun way.
In conclusion, Capture those special memories, laugh together and make your wedding more memorable by adding a simple photo booth for your wedding. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
WHAT IS PIN SPOTTING?
Pin spots are focused beams of warm white light, projected onto tabletop focal points, such as centerpieces, wedding cakes, artwork, and auction items. Pin spots highlight these elements, making them stand out in photographs and in person.
Pin spots are light fixtures with a specialized LED inside, that are narrow spotlights (rather than a normal LED, which is a wide-angle wash light). The pin spot fixtures are secured to freestanding support hardware, then focused by professional installers to maximize the impact they make. Perfect pin spotting is like an art form, making the tabletop decor elements glow just right.
HOW ARE THE PIN SPOT LIGHTS SET UP?
Most often, pin spots are rigged to ceiling tracks, or supported by freestanding pipe and base structures. Additional weight is added to the bases to make sure that these tall, heavy racks are safe near guests. Our team of Event Pros will deliver, install and focus the pin spots before the event, and uninstall them after the event.
Here at Electrolinear Entertainment, we also have a pin spot technology that allows us to incorporate pin spots in the existing lighting system of the venue without freestanding hardware. For more information about this, please call or email us.
The above photo shows the difference in light level between the centerpiece and the rest of the table. The centerpiece is the clear focal point, and the light level around the rest of the table remains intimate and not over-lit.
DO MY CENTERPIECES NEED PIN SPOTS?
Here are a few questions to answer to determine whether or not you need pin spots for your centerpieces:
- Are you having an evening event?
Pin spotting is intended for evening/nighttime events. Or, if you’re having a daytime event in a space without windows, pin spotting can still be effective.
We do not recommend pin spots for daytime events in window-filled spaces, as the effect won’t be as dramatic as you’d like.
- Are your centerpieces large/elaborate?
If so, you’ve most likely spent a significant amount of money on each one. A major design mistake we’ve seen is spending several hundred dollars per table on floral arrangements, then opting out of pin spotting. The centerpieces get lost in the look of the room, and none of your guests can see all of the exquisite details in the flowers.
- Are your centerpieces floral arrangements?
Floral arrangements often need pin spotting in order to be seen clearly in low light. This is especially true if you’re including colored uplighting or other light effects.
- Are you using other types of lighting in the room?
You may think that if you’re using uplighting and other lighting effects, you don’t need pin spots. In fact, the opposite is typically true. The high-end look you’re trying to achieve comes from layering different types of light. The uplighting creates a colorful wash, then the pin spots create dramatic focal points and keep the room from looking like one solid color. This combination draws guests’ eyes to each beautiful element in the room.
- Do you have lots of candles on each table?
If your centerpiece primarily consists of candles, pin spots aren’t necessary. If you plan to use candles as accents, a gorgeous balance of light comes from a pin spot on the floral centerpiece, and 3-6 candles as accents around it.
HOW MUCH DO PIN SPOTS COST?
Pin spot pricing is dependent upon a few factors:
- What is the timeframe for setup and takedown?
Rates are calculated based on how much time is allowed for setup. Less time for installation means sending more installers, which can increase the cost. The timeframe should always be discussed with your venue prior to booking.
- Where is the event being held?
Labor and trucking rates are also dependent upon the distance from the vendor to the location.
- How many pin spots do you need?
If you need over twenty pin spots, you can often pay a lower price per table than if you only need a few.
To receive pin spot pricing, please contact us with your event location, date, timeline, and table quantity. This information allows us to create a prompt quote that includes setup and takedown.
