I'm smiling ear to ear this afternoon not just because it's an absolutely beautiful 76 degree day in January in one of the top wedding destination's in the world (Charleston, SC), but there is another reason. For the 4th consecutive year, my company, Mike Bills Entertainment, a single operator premier professional DJ service has received the Couple's Choice Award from Weddingwire.com It's an annual recognition decided upon by brides and grooms from all over and is awarded to approximately 5% of wedding vendors nationally.
2016 has been one of the most tumultuous years in the world of entertainment as we've lost so many incredible musicians who have written so many songs that continue to stand the test of time and that will entertain wedding after wedding in Charleston for years to come. While there have been well over 100 musicians who have lost their lives in 2016, the ones listed here in this blog post are musicians that have passed whose music is commonly heard at Charleston weddings.
Merry Christmas. As I sit here this morning and sip my coffee on yet another Christmas morning in Charleston, I am beyond thankful for my business and all the wedding vendors and brides and I got to serve in 2016 to make their Charleston weddings sound the best possible. I look forward to serving more brides in 2017 and beyond. 2017 is setting up to be another amazing year for Mike Bills Entertainment.

Ah yes! The cake cutting! We could not possibly leave out the cake cutting. It's one of those "fun" elements of your wedding reception. Usually held after the toast, its one of those times during the night where your guests can grab their smartphone or camera and watch you and your new husband do something "together".
The bouquet toss. Call it a month of music I guess you could say as I continue to fill my blog posts with musical ideas as you might have just gotten recently gotten engaged and are thinking about the music you might want to hear at your wedding. The bouquet toss. Single ladies this is one opportunity for you.
The introduction of your bridal party to your wedding reception has the potential to be one of the spotlights of the evening or maybe a little less dramatic with just you and him. For larger bridal parties, some couples opt for JUST the bride and groom to be brought with usually a snippit of an upbeat and cheery song, which is faded right into their first dance. It really is up to you how formal you'd like to be.
Ladies and gentleman. Hot off the presses. The results have been tabulated. I am proud to give you the Top 20 Mother And Son Dance Songs that were heard throughout Charleston at weddings in 2016.
