A Reception Sing-Off

So far, it’s been fantastic working with our DJ to put together the timeline and reception music picks, especially since he has a fun personality and tons of great ideas. One of his thoughts to help keep the party rolling? A classic sing-off, pitting the guys against the girls!

At our last meeting, he explained that during past receptions and parties, if the crowd started to tire of dancing or needed a little pick-me-up, he often brought out large poster-sized cards listing the lyrics to a popular song that most people love, like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” He then called everyone out on the floor for the competition.


Will it work at our party? We’ll see. Sizing up our crowd, I know we’ll definitely have a handful of guests who will sit this one out. On the other hand, I do think we’ll also have plenty who are willing to go for it!

What do you think? Would you do something like this at a wedding, or would you rather watch on the sidelines?

  1. I would totally participate, but karaoke is my number 1 fun activity to do. My fiance and I even met at a sushi/sake/karaoke night! What a fun idea :)

  4. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

    In response to your question, I don't know anyone in Alexandria unfortunately. I went to a lady up in Frederick, MD who works out of her house. She does amazing work and is VERY inexpensive (she only charged my BM $10 to fix her dress and did it within the week). It's a hike but if you can't find anyone else it may be worth a shot to contact her. If you want her info just email me... shannon@productionadvantage.com

  7. Karaoke is not my thing so I may be one of the few watching from the sidelines. But I think if enough people are up for it, it will be a fun event.
