Wedding Timeline for Dallas Wedding Reception

Every wedding that we provide DJ & master of ceremonies for receives a custom timeline outlining their entire reception. Many people are surprised that we do this, but we’re more than just a DJ. As your master of ceremonies, it is important to know what is happening and when it is happening. It is also crucial to make sure all your other vendors know when everything is happening too. That’s why all of our clients get a timeline like the one below before their wedding. Clients are welcome to share it with other vendors as well as anyone else who may need to know the schedule. We also bring extra copies with us for all the vendors too.

Having a good flow to your reception is very important. If your guests are sitting around too long after dinner and get bored, they may leave. Or if too many things are crammed together, they may feel like it is rushed. That’s where my 12 years of experience as a wedding DJ & master of ceremonies really helps. I coordinate with whoever is in charge at the venue or your caterer as well as your photographer and other vendors to make sure we’re all on the same page. I also let them know at least a few minutes before I announce anything to make sure they are prepared.

So how is the timeline created? If you choose to have me as the DJ for your Dallas area wedding, we have a planning meeting where we create your timeline together. Then I type it up and send it to you for review before it is finalized.

Here is the final timeline from a wedding Discovery provided DJ & master of ceremonies services for. It took place in early 2012 at the Old Red Museum in Dallas.

Tower Club Wedding DJ & Lighting in Dallas by Discovery DJ & Lighting

We started by painting the Tower Club purple. Then Jim Weisz served as the DJ and Master of Ceremonies for Michael & Ashley’s wedding reception. The result was a memorable evening for Michael & Ashley as they celebrated their wedding.

This was our second time to provide services at the Tower Club in downtown Dallas. It is a great venue with amazing views from the 48th floor–and it turned out they were having fireworks the same night as the wedding, which was a nice treat for the guests.

Michael & Ashley had every detail covered–including a late night snack of slider hamburgers & fries. It was a nice treat for everyone. After a lot of dancing, the snack came at the perfect time!

Special thanks to the staff at the Tower Club. They are extremely professional and very helpful, which we really appreciate. I would also like to thank Jessica of Rae Portraits. She is awesome to work with and takes amazing pictures! She was kind enough to supply me with some pictures from the wedding, which are posted below.
