Wedding Univ: Carl MIndling

Carl Mindling
The Only DJ

What is your most recent favorite wedding moment?

When the little ring bearer snagged the garter away from all the big boys and then laid flat out on the dance floor like he had just scored a touchdown to bask in his glorious catch.

What is the best toast you've ever heard?

When the groom stood up and toasted the bride's parents.  He simply said "I want to thank you for trusting me with Julie's future."

What have you seen that makes a wedding the most memorable?

Anything that is unique and creative.  Many of my clients have been bold enough to REALLY personalize their event regardless of the rules or etiquette books.

How do you jump start a party that is stalled?

I focus attention on someone who I know will want to be the lampshade.  It can be a bridesmaid, guest or certain table who will lead the pack.  I make them the vehicle for putting the party in gear.

What's the best advice you can give a bride and groom?

NEVER leave your reception.  You are the reason for the celebration, the common denominator and  the catalyst for the event.
