Proudly Affiliated with Wish Upon a Wedding

CJ’s Disc Jockey Service has affiliations with several excellent organizations. We are very proud to be part of the professional vendors that support and encourage Wish Upon a Wedding here in St. Louis MO.

Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.

We believe in giving back, in helping out, in being the hands that extend in order to make the world a better place for everybody. We’re lucky to be associated with so many groups and individuals who believe as we do and who join us in wanting a little more happiness to be spread around.

Favorite Kind of Music

The questions I’m asked more often than any others are:

what is your favorite genre of music?

and

Don’t you get sick of hearing the same songs every week?

The truth is that I really do like all kinds of music— and being able to like different genres means that I KNOW MUSIC. Across the board. Armed with this knowledge I’m better able to discuss the entertainment portion of a special event and know that we’ll get the right mix.

What’s the most popular song? Depends on the event, it’s really kind of funny. We can talk about that another time!

The Thing About Playlists

The thing about playlists is that they seem to be a tricky subject. 99.999% of clients have at least one song they DON’T want to hear. At All. Whether it is a request by a guest or popular at the time if a client doesn’t want to hear something, it doesn’t get played. Period.

We actively listen to our clients. With our years of experience in the business we can suggest songs that might be appropriate during a certain time in the event, or music that fits within the theme of a party.

We can help you plan the music for your event and are very happy to do so!

It seems that it is still true that JUNE is for weddings!Some fun June Wedding facts:

The wedding itself and the events leading up to the ceremony are steeped in ancient traditions still evident in Victorian customs. One of the first to influence a young girl is choosing the month and day of her wedding. June has always been the most popular month, for it is named after Juno, Roman goddess of marriage. She would bring prosperity and happiness to all who wed in her month. Practicality played a part in this logic also. If married in June, the bride was likely to birth her first child in Spring, allowing her enough time to recover before the fall harvest.

June also signified the end of Lent and the arrival of warmer weather. That meant it was time to remove winter clothing and partake in one’s annual bath. April, November and December were favored also, so as not to conflict with peak farm work months. October was an auspicious month, signifying a bountiful harvest. May, however, was considered unlucky. “Marry in May and rue the day,” an old proverb goes. But “Marry in September’s shine, your living will be rich and fine.”

In the Southern United Sates, April was favored, as it was less hot, and a bride’s favorite flowers were in bloom–jasmine and camellia.

Brides were just as superstitious about days of the week. A popular rhyme goes:

Marry on Monday for health,
Tuesday for wealth,
Wednesday the best day of all,
Thursday for crosses,
Friday for losses, and
Saturday for no luck at all.
The Sabbath day was out of the question.

Saturday for no luck at all??? That can’t be true at all, crazy Victorians!
