When we were planning my wedding reception, I assumed we would just use a CD to play music rather than get live wedding entertainment in Highland Park. This is because I didn't think that it would be a big deal to just make things casual. However, my husband, who has very little opinions about party planning, insisted that we get live wedding entertainment in Highland Park. He really didn't make a fuss about anything else, so when he asked for this I thought it was the least that I could do for him. I have to say I am so glad that he pushed me to hire a live band. We chose a band together that we both liked that did awesome covers, but then also had a couple songs that were their originals. The whole night was one big party and we had only planned on staying for about 2 hours, but we were having so much fun that we paid the band extra and went for over 3 hours. It was one of the most fun parties I have ever been to, which only made my wedding day all the more memorable. Now when I think back on that day it brings a smile to my face. Share
