Maybe you are already engaged and are in the home stretch of your Charleston wedding preparation. Then it's certainly time for you and your girls to get together for the all-important bridal shower. Usually, it's the maid of honor and bridesmaids that are hard at work in planning your bridal shower so that the bride can kick back and enjoy it to it's fullest. While the bridal shower is definitely a more close and intimate time to get together with friends and family before your big and busy wedding day, there is one thing that tends to get forgotten amid all the decorations, food, gifts, and games that come with a wonderful bridal shower. The one thing that tends to be forgotten for your bridal shower is music. While you don't necessarily need to budget in a DJ for your bridal shower (not unless you want to), you and your friends and fmaily need and excellent playlist. From a lazy, chill "girls night" with wine or a champagne brunch, take a listen to these songs an jot down the ones you love and smile and enjoy the moment. As an experienced professional wedding DJ, it's my belief that the best wedding playlists begin with your bridal shower.You are getting oh so close to getting married. Let's do this.
