Our readers had music questions—and DJ Chris Laich came through in a big way. In Thursday morning’s live chat, Chris stayed an extra half hour to make sure he answered every last question. For 18 years, Chris has been specializing in elegant, romantic, fun—but never cheesy—weddings. Your guests won’t be dancing the letters Y-M-C-A, unless of course you want them to! What the bride wants always comes first. That’s Chris’s rule.
But for brides looking for some guidance, Chris came through with great advice. What are some good cake-cutting songs? What songs really get people out on the dance floor? Can the DJ get the party going without accosting guests with the microphone? Chris answered all those questions and more. If you missed yesterday’s chat, catch up here.
Next week, we’ll be asking minister and wedding officiant Chris Castle—who also just happens to be a senior waiter at the Inn at Little Washington—the do’s and don’ts of the ceremony. More details to come, but start submitting questions now and Chris will answer them Thursday at 11.
