As you sort through many wedding entertainment options, it’s important to note that yes, there are in fact, many Colorado wedding DJ options for every bride’s individual taste, style and budget out there. That’s ok. Unlike the other companies, believe it or not, we really don’t want to book every wedding that inquires with us for their wedding. We realize that we may not be for every bride, nor is she for Amore DJ Entertainment. Rather, we love to book the “right fit” fun weddings and “team up” with our couples in a collaborative relationship to comprehensively plan each and every wedding making it spectacular, memorable and inserting a creative splash of, well, you! We all love what we do, and we want to have fun at weddings too!
I know, you’re probably asking then, “isn’t all wedding entertainment the same?”
Yes. Well, sort of.
In the end, yes, we all play music (bands play live music, DJs play recorded music); yes, we all speak on a microphone; and yes, we all do our best to get guests dancing. However, results can vary greatly from company to company, DJ to DJ, DJ to band, band to band, couple to couple, venue to venue, family to family and even wedding to wedding. The difference for us? Amore’s Wedding Entertainment Design™ process of how we do those things, what we do behind the scenes to create, organize, meticulously prepare while simultaneously focusing on the big “why” we do what we do, the genuine passion, our philosophy and the many years of wedding experience we bring to the table.
Our exclusive Wedding Entertainment Design™ process is specifically based on the planned and intentional discovery of you, your personalities, traditions, heritage, experiences, wedding day perceptions and expectations mirrored along side your wedding vision so we can help create a one-of-a-kind celebration. Then we are able to present suggestions based on our extensive wedding experience, creativity and knowledge to be able to do that.
Together, we’ll create memorable and unique moments for the ceremony, and wedding reception using my extensive wedding experience to create meaningful and memorable moments, often times in areas or ways you may have never even considered.
How the Amore’ Wedding Entertainment Design™ process develops:
1) Make a NO OBLIGATION interview appointment with me (Matt) at a place and time that is convenient for you. If you live out of State or even out of country, not a problem. We can do this via skype or phone call. (this appointment will last approximately 90 minutes. During that first 90 minutes we spend together expect:
-We will simply chat for 55 to 60 minutes about the two of you, your vision, your tastes, your desired outcome, personal experiences, family traditions, heritage, etc. for your wedding. I will listen, ask questions and take copious notes.
-Then, for about 15 minutes, we will chat about my background, our exclusive Wedding Entertainment Designer™ process, show you our wedding confirmation kit, and a couple of internal checklist. We’ll briefly chat about some of the 550 awesome and creative ideas I personally created this year for our weddings, and how our team of wedding and event experts can make your day unforgettable.
-I will provide you with what many Colorado Brides refer to as “$300 worth of wedding planning information” to use however you want in the way of the no obligation consultation. I will also provide you with Amore’ DJ Entertainment’s extensive wedding planning guide called “Counting Down the Days to Your Wedding.”
2) At our meeting, once I have an understanding of your vision for your wedding based on our discussion, I will provide you with an exact, “no surprises” price quote.
-If, the quote is agreeable, we will mutually sign an entertainment contract with a 50% retainer paid then via check at that time.
-If, for some reason the quote isn’t acceptable, we can discuss it and/or I will gladly offer my assistance in helping you find someone that better fits your budget.
-If, for any reason, you or I feel we just don’t click, we can part paths knowing we shared some great ideas and you can keep the “Counting Down the Days to Your Wedding” guide.
3) Lastly, the remaining 15 minutes of our time together is specifically allocated for you to ask me anything. Often times, brides ask questions like, “Matt, you’ve personally performed over 1,300 weddings. What’s a cool way of doing ‘X’ (ie. the bouquet toss, or a creative alternative instead of a traditional cake, or ….?”). This is often my favorite part of an appointment because it’s a chance for brides to explore the creative “how” to make their wedding uniquely them.
Assuming you book Amore’ DJ Entertainment for your wedding…
If you wish, as we get closer to the wedding, we can discuss any ideas you may have discovered or developed as well as chat about a few more of our ideas; which you can decide if you like them or not. (this can be done in person, phone, or skype. (Generally, this appointment lasts about two hours.)
*We will discus the ideas that might fit into your style and taste for your wedding.
*We will discuss your color(s), atmosphere (ambiance) lighting, focal point lighting, linens, highlight features and other décor.
*We will discuss the room layout, head table, seating, room arrangement, cake location, and some of the logistical necessities (ie. room access, strike (tear down) time, electrical power needs, etc.) to create your specific wedding vision.
*We will fully factor in all five senses when constructing the reception entertainment experience in the way only Amore’ DJ Entertainment can.
*Lastly, we promise to provide you the most comprehensive wedding confirmation and preparation process anywhere. For the most common packages booked, we do far more than a puny 2, 3, or even 7 page woefully lacking “planner” other DJs brag about. When we meet, you’ll see that our focus is beyond just playing music and making a few announcements like they do. We truly strive to help our couples in every way possible. This is why our weddings always go smooth and seamless.
Then, in the last 4 to 6 weeks prior to the wedding:
*Complimentary consultations (if needed)
*Amore’ DJ Entertainment’s “Counting Down Days to the Wedding” Guide (4 pages, and 106 key
points) for you to review again.
*The extensive “Amore Reception Confirmation Planning Kit” (47 pages) packed with lots of hints, tips, pictures, descriptions, song suggestions and even 109 creative and original wedding reception ideas to personalize your wedding celebration, tons of practical hints and tips, and 150 awesome song suggestions for those “special moments” like cutting the cake, your first dance, etc. I’ve even included many secret songs that are personal favorites for these special moments but aren’t over played at every wedding (yet).There is tons of cool stuff in this kit to personalize your wedding and make your wedding entertainment a fun, memorable experience for everyone! (I know, I know, 47 pages sounds like a lot, but it’s not. Just know, there are tons of pictures describing some of our exclusive ideas, brief descriptions, etc in there. So, it’s not just 47 pages of text – it’s far from that! It’s an easy read, designed to get you thinking. Our average bride says it’s so well organized, that it generally takes between 1 ½ hour and 2 hours to complete. Brides always discover several inspiring and original ideas they never even thought of.)
Here’s just a one page excerpt (essentially the table of contents) from the current Amore’ Wedding Reception Confirmation kit showing our thoroughness and creativity for every facet in helping you plan your wedding reception.
*The extensive “Amore Ceremony Confirmation Planning Kit” (17 pages) again packed with lots of hints, tips, pictures, descriptions, 116 creative and original wedding ceremony ideas designed to personalize your wedding ceremony and 105 awesome song suggestions for those “special moments” like: creative alternatives to the unity ceremony portion (ie. the sand ceremony, tree planting, etc) along with many secret songs that are personal favorites for thee special moments as well! (Our average bride says this generally takes about 1 hour to complete.)
(When booked to provide the sound for the wedding ceremony, here’s just a one page excerpt (essentially the table of contents) from the current 17 page Amore’ Wedding Ceremony Confirmation kit brides receive as well.)
*Our exclusive “Signature Audio Tribute” guide (3 pages) that shows you how you can add this to accent your wedding day and make it even more memorable.
Here’s what our “Signature Audio Tribute” sounds like, just remember, it’s just audio only and there are NO audio markers in actual ones produced for weddings. It is audio only, and can be done with things like: love letters you write to each other, actual vows, toasts by special guests who are unable to attend, maybe a special thought when Dad walks you down the aisle, etc. It’s something that always leaves guests saying “WOW! That was really cool!”
*Access to my authentic creativity with over 550 original and unique wedding ideas created this last year!
*We’ve licensed the eBook “Wedding Toasts Made Easy.” We send it directly to all those you have toasting. This easy to read, practical guide will help those speaking on your behalf to deliver a fantastic, meaningful and well delivered toast or speech! In fact, Regis, yes, that Regis Philbin from TV, used this same book for his very own daughter’s wedding. All you have to do, in the toast section of the reception kit, is just jot down the email addresses of those speaking, and we’ll take care of the rest.
*Admission for the groom to attend our very popular “Colorado Groom’s Workshop” where we explain “the rules to the game” on the wedding day. We’ll chat about things they don’t know, point out several things that will help them tremendously, and so much more about the wedding day – coming from the bride’s perspective but delivered from Matt! If he can’t attend, no problem. We’ll do a 10 minute “crash course” on the phone. (The guys LOVE this helpful workshop!)
*Every other wedding professional is contacted personally by Matt the week of the wedding, and EVERY detail is reviewed so that we’re all on the same page.
…and so much more!
In fact, you’ll get a quick sneak peek of this final 4 to 6 week countdown process for out most common wedding packages!
We make weddings elegant and stress-free!
We make weddings amazingly fun!
