We choose not to have a band for the obvious reason of cost, and we ultimately choose not to have a DJ because of the cost combined with the Dreaded Cheese Factor.
Mr. B and I went back and forth on this one, let me tell you. Regardless of the fact that his only dance move is The Sprinkler, Mr. B insisted we have a rockin dance party with a DJ.
I can't remember the resolution [measuring up the restaurant, crying, leaving the task to him, deal-making??], but we never hired a DJ.
Instead, with a week to go to the big event, we hired a photobooth.
