Weddings:so many details, so much family advise and so many ideas created on Instagram and Pintrest. Have you ever put together a puzzle of a thousand pieces by yourself? Have you experienced the magic when the last piece goes into place? Wedding planners are an essential component to a magical worry free day... Handholding from start to finish.

One of the most important, but most often overlooked aspects of a wedding is the choice of music entertainment for the big day. My advice for couples is to do their homework. If you decide to go with a DJ, there is a tremendous advantage in working with an experienced owner-operator. Their rates are competitive with the multi-system DJ operations, however the level of attention and overall quality you will receive from an owner-operator is truly second to none. Also, with an owner-operator there's no question who will be your DJ on your wedding day. You're entertainment will rest in the hands of a seasoned professional, whose only concern is making sure you and your guests have a fantastic time dancing the night away. Want to talk more? Call Mark at Top Tier Entertainment at 314-744-9190, or visit us online at www.toptierdjstl.com! The site is currently under construction, but there's a lot of great info there!
