I have to admit that first I was skeptical.  I mean…are these REALLY real brides? Or is this a way for a start-up company to drum up business for their company to get some revenue from reputable businesses like mine.  Cue the story of Miranda and Andrew.

 

Miranda first contacted me via my Request For Information form on my website through DJ Event Planner (shameless plug).  If you notice in my above request for information I ask my couples that are inquiring in advance “How important do you feel entertainment is to the success of your event?” and “What do you want your guests to say about your reception?”  And “What are you struggling with most in planning your wedding?”  More about these questions and the story in next week’s article.
