If you are planning a corporate event, whether it is a product release or some other major announcement, then you want to use social media for promotions. Instagram is a great way to accomplish this and create excitement for your event. Here are a few tips.

  • Use stories – Hundreds of millions of stories are posted every day on Instagram. You can use these 24-hour posts to share a peak behind-the-scenes at your event. Post everything from the setup to your event entertainment
  • Use hashtags – The right hashtags get your content noticed by people who are not already following your brand. Be sure to use hashtags that are common for your industry, but you may also want to create a hashtag for event attendees to use so you can see what people are posting. A competition for best picture with some sort of prize is a great way to get people to promote your event for you.
  • Read and respond to comments accordingly – Social media is called social for a reason. If you don’t interact, you’re using it wrong. Just be sure to have someone who really loves your brand and who can avoid controversy at the helm. It’s best just to ignore online trolls and focus on genuine comments (both good and bad).

If you want to have a traditional wedding on the weekend, one thing that you need to do is set a schedule. Here are a few tips for planning a traditional weekend wedding.

  • The Rehearsal Dinner: Since a traditional wedding will occur on a Saturday, the rehearsal dinner will be on Friday night. The rehearsal should begin at 5:00pm sharp to ensure you can be at dinner by 7:00pm. Everyone should be finished by 10:00pm, so you can get an early start on your big day.
  • The Ceremony: Preparations may begin as early as 9:00am, depending on who is doing hair and makeup for the bride. If the ceremony is starting at 5:00pm, you may want to have your bridal party pictures done beforehand, starting at 1:00pm. You also want your wedding band or DJ onsite in time to be set up and playing music when guests start arriving at 4:30pm.
  • The Reception: The cocktail hour should begin by 6:00pm. This gives everyone time to get settled in before the 7:00pm dinner seating. The first dance is at 7:20pm followed by dinner at 7:45pm. If you plan on having guests give speeches, this should be done during dinner. Then it’s time to dance!

Hire the Right Performers to Help Your Wedding Plans Run Smoothly

Whether you want a band or a DJ for your wedding, the best performers in San Diego are at SGM Events. Let us help you ensure that you have the best music from the moment the guests arrive at the ceremony until it is time to get off the dancefloor at the end of the night. Call 800.670.7308 now or submit an online booking inquiry.

If you want everyone at your ceremony and reception to have a great time, music is one of the key considerations. How can you provide the best music on your special day? Here are a few mistakes to avoid.

  • Hiring an amateur – Having a buddy DJ your BBQ or play an acoustic set for a graduation party is one thing. Your wedding requires professionalism. Whether you want a DJ, a solo artist, or a band, don’t dismiss the idea of hiring a professional just to save a little bit of money.
  • Only playing one genre of music – There’s a good reason for celebrating diversity, and that includes when it comes to music. Why lock yourself into one particular type of sound? Your artist should be able and willing to play various genres of music to keep the evening lively.
  • Not being part of the music selection process – Sometimes the bride and groom think hiring a performer and selecting a few music genres is the extent of their job, and if you really don’t care what songs are played at your wedding, maybe that’s okay. However, if you have songs that need to be played and others you want to avoid at all costs, that needs to be communicated in advance.

Hire the Right San Diego Wedding Musicians and Other Performers

To help you find the most professional, talented, and diverse performers in the San Diego area, SGM Events has partnered with the biggest names in town. Contact us today at 800.670.7308, or you can submit a booking inquiry online.

If you want to arrange your wedding ceremony in a more traditional manner, here is an order of events checklist to assist you with your planning.

  • The Wedding Procession – The wedding begins, and the wedding party and then the bride walk down the aisle to the carefully selected music.
  • Discourse by officiant – The person presiding of the wedding will usually start with some general greetings and comments on marriage. Then he will turn to the bride and groom for more personal attention regarding their new life together.
  • Exchanging of vows – Since you are going with a traditional ceremony, you may want traditional vows as well, although some people choose to write their own.
  • Exchanging of rings – At this point, the couple place rings on one another’s left hand symbolizing their commitment to each other.
  • Marriage pronouncement – The officiant will now announce the happy couple as newly married.
  • The first kiss – The couple gets to kiss for the first time as husband and wife, usually to thunderous applause.
  • First steps as husband and wife – The recessional is the exiting of the couple and sometimes the wedding party and other family members, once again to music.

Getting the Music for Your Ceremony and Reception Right

SGM Events has the best wedding bands and DJs in San Diego. If you want the best music at your wedding ceremony and reception, contact us today at 800.670.7308, or you can submit an online booking inquiry.

You want your wedding to be a special day for you and your new spouse, but you also want all your family and friends to enjoy themselves. That usually means having a band or DJ at the wedding reception to get everyone out on the dance floor. You should play an active role in determining the music that will be played. Here are a few ways to get music ideas to share with your wedding entertainer(s).

  • Pay attention at weddings – If you are going to be attending other weddings between now and yours, see what songs really get the crowd going and request those.
  • Ask your friends – Why not send an email to your guests and ask for suggestions? They are going to be the ones dancing, so they know what kind of music they like. It’s kind of like taking requests, just in advance.
  • Search online – If you Google (or DuckDuckGo) the best wedding songs of the year, you should be able to get some recommendation on trending music.
  • Communicate with your entertainment – Your DJ or band may have suggestions for what has worked at other weddings they have performed at. See which ones fit your attendees.

Hire the Right Wedding Entertainment

Of course, hiring the right wedding entertainment is half the battle. SGM Events is here to help by offering the best musical and alternative wedding entertainment in San Diego. To hire one of our experienced entertainers, call 800.670.7308, or submit an online booking inquiry today!

Corporate events can bring in a lot of great publicity for a brand. Look at all of the hype that surrounds big release events for brands like Apple. While your company may not have the same type of following, you still want everything from the event parking to your live entertainment to go off without a hitch because the last thing you want is for your company to be suddenly on the map due to ending up on some kind of corporate event fails video. Here are a few of the big mistakes to avoid.

  • Be careful where you cut costs – Of course, you need to budget. All successful businesses do. Just be careful where you cut the costs. Hire the cheapest catering service, and everyone may go home with food poising. Choose the cheapest entertainer, and he or she may be more of an embarrassment than an entertainer. Select the wrong venue, and you may not have enough space.
  • Communicate well when things change last minute – This always happens with events, so you have to roll with the punches. But dealing with last-minute changes the wrong way can lead to absent vendors, lost deposits, or an event that completely fails to get off the ground (think Fyre Festival level disaster).

Corporations are always trying to better themselves. If your next goal is to throw your best corporate event ever, then you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the entertainment ideas that have been trending in 2019 to help you make good decisions.

  • Photobooths – We may live in the age of the selfie, but people still can’t resist getting into a photo booth with their friends. This may be just what you need to turn coworkers into pals.
  • Interactive food and beverage stations – From a potato bar to a coffee bar, there are tons of ways to make the food and drinks interactive at your event. It’s a win-win because attendees can choose their own food, and it’s a fun way to get your meal together.
  • A cover band – People love hearing a live band play all of their favorite songs. As an alternative, you can hire a DJ to play all of the actual songs on high powered sound equipment.
  • A magician – Magicians seem to be more popular than ever, and sleight of hand isn’t just a party trick for kids anymore. A magician may be just what your corporate event needs to bring it into the 21st

If you are planning a corporate event in California, there are a few considerations that you need to work on right away. These are the three most important steps in hiring entertainment for your next corporate event.

  1. Choose the right type of entertainment – For a corporate event, this is almost always a band or a DJ. However, there are other options, including hiring a magician. The key thing is to hire an entertainer with corporate event experience so that you know you are dealing with a professional.
  2. Book your artist now – The top entertainers have busy schedules, so you want to be sure to get your event on the calendar now, even if you are months or a year or more away. You don’t want to find the perfect performer and not be able to book him or her because they are under contract for another engagement.
  3. Use SGM Events as your booking agency – We have the best entertainment in the San Diego area, so you are sure to find an artist who meets your needs and can offer professional experience.

Getting married outdoors in the warm summer sun is a nice way to start a lifetime together, but you have to do it right or things can quickly get off to a bad start for the happy couple. Here are four quick tips to help you enjoy a great summer wedding.

  1. Choose the right venue – Not only do you want the right location and atmosphere but having a plan B with an indoor room is also great in case rain decides to play the spoiler on your big day.
  2. Select a fitting menu – Be careful with foods that can go bad quickly in the heat. Sticking to a lighter fare is also a good idea because people don’t like to eat heavy foods when they are hot.
  3. Wear the right outfit – Wedding clothes aren’t known for being light and airy, so choosing the right materials for dresses or suits is a must.
  4. Hire the right wedding entertainment – Some bands or DJs are better suited for playing outdoors. Your venue will also have to have a power supply that is accessible to the musicians, unless it’s a small wedding and they don’t require speakers, amps, or a mic.

Use the Right Agency to Book Your Wedding Music

SGM Events has the artists you want for your outdoor wedding. From bands to DJs and even specialty acts, we have what you’re looking for. Give us a call today at 800.670.7308, or you can submit a booking inquiry online.
