Welcome to My Lighter and Brighter Area for Processing Forms
The form below should be filled out immediately after you deliver a deposit because it will be used to hold your date
and start your wedding file. The music planning form can be filled out over time as ideas come to you.
I prefer email communication so that there's always an electronic record of arrangements, including all of the changes
brides tend to make along the way. I don't like PDF forms because they don't allow me to highlight, copy and paste
information into scripts. A liaison contact number is important because many brides and grooms become unreachable
on their wedding day. Your liaison should be a friend or relative who isn't a member of the wedding party.
Please copy and paste the following information into a new email form. Type the appropriate responses for each question.

ATTENTION: I don't charge for same-room receptions because there's no need to break down a heavy
system and carry the components to another location. (That process takes 45 minutes.) However, the reception should follow the ceremony without an excessive amount of lag time.

PLEASE PROVIDE CLEAR DIRECTIONS:
Due to illogical and unnecessary twists and turns generated by Google MapQuest, I must ask all brides
living outside the Downriver area to provide clear directions, including exit numbers and street names.
A week before the wedding, take note of any construction hassles or road closures that may prevent me
from driving the specified route. As your wedding date approaches, stay abreast of local travel conditions
so that guests and vendors may anticipate complications.
SAMPLE OF CLEAR DIRECTIONS:
Take I-75 North to Somewhereton Road, exit 567. Turn right onto Somewhereton Road. Follow this road
for approximately 2 miles.Turn left onto Small Town Avenue. Follow this road for approximately 1 mile.
Turn right onto Main Street. The venue will be about 3 blocks down on the right. If you reach Nowhere Drive,
you've gone too far.
ATTENTION OUTDOOR PARTY ORGANIZERS:
(Delete this section if it doesn't apply to you.)
Outdoor clients must provide overhead shelter. This may include a tent, pavilion, garage, carport or canopy.
Sudden rain can electrocute the host or ruin computers, speakers, amplifiers and lighting units. If your tent
doesn't have side flaps to prevent heavy rain from blowing onto vendors and guests, designate an emergency
assistant to help the DJ cover equipment with tarps. This task can be accomplished much faster with two
people working to cover speakers and light poles in different locations.
PLEASE PROVIDE A DJ TABLE FOR YOUR HOST:
I arrive at each event in a giant SUV packed to the ceiling with equipment, including a backup system
in case of emergency. There's simply no room for me to carry a DJ table. Most wedding venues provide
six-foot tables for the setup of sound equipment. On rare occasions, I encounter outdoor venues with no
tables available for vendors. Please be sure that your venue has tables available for vendors.
