It was about three weeks until my friend’s big day, and I was probably the least prepared bridesmaid in the history of weddings. I had not gone on a diet, I didn’t have a date, I had no idea what my hair and makeup was supposed to look like, I had no clue what to get my friend as a wedding gift, but most importantly I didn’t have a dress. I know all you brides-to-be are having a heart attack reading this because you know how stressful that situation can be, but let me break it down. First of all, I never seemed to have the money to buy a dress. Every paycheck I get goes to bills, groceries, and (more often than you’d think) birthday gifts. On top of that, the wedding was Game of Thrones themed, so my friend wanted the dress to be long, flowy, and an impossible-to-find-in-stores shade of blue. I’ve gone to every department store and boutique I know of, and although I did find the color I needed, I couldn’t find the perfect style. So at this point, I was on every website trying to find a dress that’s not only in the steel blue color my friend requested, but a dress that would be here on time.
I met my friend (we’ll call her Brenda) my freshman year of college. Me and my two best friends from my hometown ended up going to college together. The three of us met Brenda at an event for all the freshman who lived on campus. After the event, my two friends and I stayed up until dawn talking with all our new friends we’d made (including Brenda). That night was a start to a beautiful friendship. The rest of our freshman year flew by in a blur of long nights and Whataburger runs. Now, just a few years later, Brenda was getting married and me and my two friends didn’t have dresses.
In my defense, my friend didn’t really start talking about the dresses until about a month or two before the wedding. She’s a very relaxed, laid-back girl who told us we could pick the style as long as it was that particular shade of blue, long, flowy, and here by the wedding date. I’m lucky she didn’t kill me for waiting so long to get a dress—Brenda is probably the nicest, understanding person I know and I admire her for that. But that’s not an excuse and I definitely shouldn’t have waited so long. She even gave us a website to rent the exact dress she wanted–but because I waited so long, the website indicated that I was not able to deliver the dress on time.
I spent days looking online for a dress, and it probably would have gotten to me on time if I didn’t take days to decide on one. I kept going back to that website Brenda suggested. I decided to reach out to them to see if by a miracle they could help me out. Sure enough, after an email to customer service, I was introduced to a woman, Kristina, via email. She was able to help me out, give me suggestions on styles similar to what I (or rather Brenda) had in mind, and she even let me know upfront that I should order the dress ASAP so it would definitely be delivered to me on time. I don’t know what I would have done without their help!

When is the last time you attended an event where a live band was playing? It seems like the days of dancing to a live band playing cumbias and the YMCA are long gone, as most people are opting for DJs at their event. Flashing lights and loud speakers playing all the songs made for dancing are all people want nowadays. DJs can play a variety of music upon request, and often have the best judgement as to what the crowd wants to hear. However, hiring a band can be just as fun!
Bands and live singers can add a romantic touch to your first dance as a married couple and be just as sentimental for a father-daughter dance. Bands are also great for corporate events where you just want subtle music playing, or your 25th class reunion where you want all the throwback hits to be played. With many options available, it isn’t hard finding a band to suit your specific taste.Choosing a live performance also helps musicians’ careers. By allowing them to perform at your event, your guests may want to book that band for their event.
Choosing between a DJ or a band to play at your event is obviously a personal choice, and varies from both the taste of music you have and the mood you want for the night. At a quinceanera, for example, people often want to dance to a few cumbias and Spanish songs while at a wedding or a prom you’d be doing dances like the cha-cha-slide and the Cupid’s Shuffle all night. Finding the perfect source of music for your event can be a task. For this, Google is your best friend. You can find videos and reviews of DJs and bands in your area to find your perfect fit.
