The Mike Bills Podcast is now in it's 9th week as we get to wrap up 2019.  This podcast has been one of the greatest accomplishments for me as a professional wedding DJ, in addition to the many great wedding clients I have had the opportunity with this year. As we're just two short days past Christmas, I hope everyone has had a great holiday thus far.  If you have been downloading and listening to the other episodes of the podcast, you know what time of the year it is now. Engagement Season.  It's the perfect time of the year for proposals. One of the local Charleston news stations did a live broadcast from Brookgreen Gardens.  Brookgreen Gardens is located north of Charleston on Highway 17 in Murrells Inlet. One of the ladies that worked at the gardens mentioned 25-30 proposals will happen at their Night Of A Thousand Candles celebration. Click back on the link to see why.  If you are getting engaged this holiday season. just take it easy after you say "Yes". Enjoy the moment. Don't get too wrapped up in wedding planning in the few days after your proposal. Take a deep breath and rest easy and love each other. But when you do start to think about your wedding, do the following:  1. Pick Your Date | 2. Book Your Wedding Venue | 3. Book Your Wedding DJ. But before you book the DJ for your Charleston wedding, you must meet your wedding DJ.

You know there is Valentine's Day, and then there is a Valentine's Day in Charleston. It's no secret that Charleston is one of the most romantic cities in the country, and maybe even the world for that matter. It's rich history and cultural arts backdrop, combined with it's ever booming culinary scene make it hard to pass up a truly romantic night in the Holy City on Valentine's Day. As one of the best Charleston Wedding DJs, I've seen firsthand over the years the true power of music in creating truly special musical experiences that create lasting memories for all my clients. Mixing music with romance has the ability to create moving experiences and lasting memories on Valentines Day as well. If you do a search online, you can literally find hundreds of ways to show that special person just how much you care for them. But have you ever thought about something as simple as a Spotify playlist of truly beautiful songs for the both of you to hear and celebrate one another's love?  How about a playlist of songs that you can dial up on every other day except Valentine's Day that serves as a reminder to the both of you of just how much you love each other.

The growth of the Charleston wedding industry over the past decade has brought with it the introduction of more and more beautiful wedding venues. If you just decided that you'd like to get married in Charleston, but are undecided on your wedding venue, this post could very well help to sway your decision. First and foremost, if you haven't been to Charleston before, you need to be prepared to be blindsided by it's very high level of charm, history, beauty, and romance.  The peninsula of Charleston (also known as downtown) is where you could spend hours and hours on a rickshaw or carriage learning about the city's 300+ year history.  The charm of Charleston can be seen all over the peninsula with historic homes and mansions that have been well maintained over the years.  The owners of some of this real estate have seen fit to offer their properties to the Charleston wedding industry. I mean, what better way to experience the beauty and charm of Charleston than to feel what it was like 200 years ago and get married in an historic, colonial house or mansion? As one of the best Charleston Wedding DJs, it's been my aim to provide helpful content to all my clients coming to the Holy City to get married.  The next stop on my Charleston Wedding Venue tour takes me to Cannon Green.  You'll want to read on to learn more about this popular, new downtown Charleston wedding venue.

If you do it the right way when you hire the best wedding DJ for your biggest day in Charleston, you should also be getting a top notch MC. There are some misconceptions about DJs and MCs. Some people I've spoke with believe they are actually two separate people, and that they need to hire both. This is not true. If you hire a true professional wedding DJ, you will not only be getting the person who will properly mix your music throughout your day, but also the one who makes your announcements at the right time to make sure the flow goes smoothly. Mixing your music is important, but hiring someone who can adequately handle all your announcements with the utmost professionalism is equally as important. I cannot emphasize it enough that if your DJ / MC does not sound pleasing on the microphone, you and your guests will be in for a potentially agonizing wedding reception.

It's no secret that when you book your wedding DJ with Mike Bills Entertainment, you are given 100% complete control over the music to be played at your Charleston wedding. It's been my experience over the years that this is the best recipe for an amazing wedding reception. There are some couples who are VERY protective of their playlist. Maybe they saw a disaster of a wedding DJ at their friend's wedding last year? Maybe they are REALLY into their music and want lasting memories for many years to come. But then there are some couples who might not think they have the time to select all their music, so as a result just picked select genres of music or maybe just a handful of songs. Then, they let their DJ use their professional judgement on what songs to "fill in the blanks" with. Making sure that we have the best soundtrack for your big day, and that it will be able to have you and your guests up on the dance floor is no easy task, and involves quite a bit of leg work and analysis, as well as consultation behind the scenes. Ok, the tone of this blog post is about to get funny, so you'll definitely want to read on.

Made Our Wedding Perfect

Before choosing Mike Bills as our wedding DJ, we looked at several companies and DJs and looked over the reviews for all of them. We chose Mike Bills because of the overwhelmingly great reviews he got and I am so glad we did! They were all spot on! Mike was great to work with, quick to respond, came to our rehearsal to do a run through with us.

Professional and Creative

Mike was kind, courteous, professional, and creative! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for our destination wedding at Folly Beach. We gave Mike minimal guidance and he caught on to our "style" quickly and efficiently. Our guests are still raving about the music selections, and how they were a great balance of new tracks and standards for everyone to enjoy.
