Emotions fuse a memory
Emotions fuse a memory in place. If I said “think of a happy time’, your mind will catalog back through and focus on a particular event. You will then be able to walk me through that memory. That is what makes a wedding so powerful. We, as entertainers have the unique opportunity to help people create memories that they get to treasure forever. You can create joy, excitement, wonder, nostalgia, sentiment, and tears. We are extremely powerful. Do not waste the opportunity to create something special and memorable for your couples and their guests!
You are there to do more than just play music and make some announcements. Get to know your clients. Ask them how they met, fell in love. Ask your bride what she was feeling as her fiance popped the question. Don’t be afraid…Find out what makes them click as a couple. Ask about their family and friends. After all, this is two families who are joining to become one. Use that knowledge to create a positive impact.
A very easy question starts with one word, ‘why?’. This question is not used to criticize, but to understand the deeper reason behind it. Why was this certain song chosen? Is it important that you light a candle in remembrance? Why did you choose these flowers, this dress, this venue? Once you have gained this knowledge, share it. The guests will develop an ’emotional investment’ in the event. They will understand the personality and style of your couple. They will have more fun and you will too!
