5 Wedding Horror Stories

By |November 28th, 2015|

I’ve been in the wedding business in New England for over 25 years.  In those years, I’ve seen some horrible things happen.  Here are five of my best (or worst) stories from the past.

Justice of the Peace misses ceremony.  A wedding JP thought the ceremony was on Saturday v. Friday (the actual wedding date).   After waiting for a half an hour, we had the bride’s uncle step in to “fake” the ceremony for her wedding guests.  During cocktail hour, we had a substitute JP perform the ceremony in the back room so the marriage was legal.   LESSON LEARNED:  Touch base with all your wedding vendors the week before to confirm dates and times.
Shuttle Bus gets lost.  Our bride arranges for two shuttle buses to pick up guests to bring them from the ceremony to the reception site.  Unfortunately, one of the buses got lost.  Half of her guests were 45 minutes late to the wedding.  They all but missed the social hour.  LESSON LEARNED: Your transportation company should have GPS and printed directions.  If not, assign someone on each transport with their own GPS and directions as co-pilot.
Groom & Bride’s Uncle get into fist fight.  Yes- tensions run […]

Mashantucket Pequot Museum – Foxwoods – Wedding DJ

By |November 25th, 2015|

We had the opportunity to visit the Mashantucket Pequot Museum for an upcoming Indian Wedding (350 guests).  This space is HUGE.   They could easily hold well over the 350 guest estimate for our client.   Check out the photos of this amazing venue.  If you need more space than what Lake of Isles has to offer or want the convenience of being just a bit away from the casino spaces, this might just be the right event space for you.

Bartering While Planning Your Wedding – Reduce Your Wedding Budget

By |July 11th, 2015|

While planning your wedding, brides quickly realize that everything is more expensive than they ever thought.  When you are budgeting for your wedding, there are ways to keep costs in check.  Be a savvy wedding shopper and research on the internet.  Maybe you will find a blow-out sales on that wedding favor you love.  Maybe you can find a discount coupon for your limo.  There is another way to save on your wedding budget – why not barter?

Bartering is the trading of goods or services – reducing your out of pocket costs.  Bartering does not have to be a 1 for 1 trade.  Maybe the item you have to offer is worth less than the service that you are bartering for – then a simple negotiation and calculation will allow you to arrive a the new out of pocket cost.

Maybe you have a time share in Florida that your florist is interested in.  Your soon to be father-in-law might be a skilled carpenter who is will to trade a few hours of his time for a discount on your wedding cake.   Think about your resources and discuss with your close relatives – they might feel honored to chip in and […]

Rob Alberti’s Event Services – Average Wedding DJ Prices in CT

By |July 4th, 2015|

Rob Alberti’s Event Services is an award winning company specializing in innovative lighting design and disc jockey wedding entertainment – offers their expertise in understanding the average wedding DJ prices in CT for your reception entertainment.

Hartford, CT July, 2015 – Rob Alberti’s Event Services offers years of experience and expertise in working with many CT wedding couples trying to plan their wedding reception.   Do you go cheap and find someone willing to DJ a wedding for $300 on Craig’s List?   Is The Knot’s Best of Weddings winner for 2014 a wise choice?  Do you believe the Wedding Wire DJ testimonials?  It’s all so confusing.

Wedding DJ prices in CT can range from a Craig’s List price of about $300 to $2,500 or more.  According to REAL SIMPLE, the average DJ price ranges from around $900 to $1,300.   So, in the simplest terms, a $300 DJ is not the same as a $2,000 Wedding Professional.  If they were the same and delivered the same value, their prices would naturally be MUCH CLOSER TOGETHER.  Who in their right mind would work for $300 when you could be getting more than 5x that amount?  Clearly, there is something different between the two and the service […]

Wedding Lighting Photos in CT – Before And After

By |February 26th, 2015|

Want to see what wedding lighting can do for your next event or wedding?   I wanted to compile some BEFORE and AFTER photos so you can really see the impact that lighting will have on your venue.

What can lighting do for your wedding décor?  You spent months or even years planning the perfect wedding, you want your guests to share in this beautiful moment, you want to set the mood so that they won’t miss a thing and believe it or not, lighting is the way to go. For any event, lighting is one of the most important factors that you need to pay special attention to; it can completely transform an entire room or an empty space into a sophisticated, elegant and memorable place, much more than any regular decoration can.

These are before and after pictures of the very same ballroom but as you can see, there is very little similarity as soon as the lights go up. The room becomes more inviting, the ambiance is breathtaking, the mood is enveloping and for just one moment, you forget where you really are. That is the effect that lighting can have at your wedding, make it a night not […]
