Wedding Ceremonies & Wedding Receptions
Priority #1 The Entertainment
80% of your wedding day success depends on the entertainment. We have everything covered from the ring bearer down to the grandparents. Keep in mind, several weeks after your wedding is over. Do you want everyone talking about how much fun they had? Or, Do you want people talking about how terrible the entertainment was?
The timing of music, special wedding activities, parent dances, and announcements plays such a critical role in the overall flow of the reception. Unlike most events where the DJ is the main focus, weddings are just the opposite. It's important to keep the audience focused on the Bride & Groom. It`s YOUR day to shine, not the DJ. We can help create a Timeline of events for you OR take your careful suggestions into consideration. You're the Boss. If you have any unique ideas for your Bridal Party Introduction let us know. Also please inform us if you prefer a more Interactive performance, or a more low key performance. Listed below are the familiar wedding activities we provide.
GRAND ENTRANCE, FIRST DANCE, FATHER & BRIDE DANCE, MOTHER & GROOM DANCE, WEDDING PARTY DANCE, TOASTS, CAKE CUTTING, MONEY DANCE, BOUQUET TOSS & GARTER REMOVAL, THE LAST DANCE.
FACT: Being forced to participate is a big NO!!! Any DJ who bullies folks onto the dance floor to catch a bouquet, do a certain dance quickly annoys people. Remember nobody wants to hear a DJ constantly talking throughout the wedding. Yes, we keep your wedding flowing with announcements and fun activities...but never over the top.
FACT: During dinner, we NEVER play music at a loud VOLUME. In the early stages of receptions most people want to mingle, drink and eat some good food. We know what music is appropriate to play and when the time is right to actually play it.
FACT: We will make all your announcements with clear pronunciation at the right volume. People always ask us, if guests are allowed to come up a make a toast. Of course, we encourage it. We have an open mic policy for everyone. Some Brides just want to dance, therefor Brides may NOT want too many speeches & toasts, so microphone restrictions may apply.
FACT: MUSIC MATTERS!! We insist on hearing your PLAYLIST & DO NOT PLAYLIST. We are not your typical cheesy DJ service! ORGANIZED DANCE SONGS such as electric slide, macarena, the dougie, cupid shuffle, cha cha slide, the wobble etc are not played unless given permission by the Bride. No worries with us..we are not here to incite a last minute FLASH MOB or make any guests get up to sing, dance or make a long speech. Fads come and go, however you are in charge...we will leave that up to you.
Let's be honest, most wedding ceremonies are 25-45 minutes. For an additional charge ranging from $65 -$120, we can provide all the wedding music needed. Furthermore, we will gladly play any special music YOU put on CD or FLASHDRIVE for your ceremony or reception. We will also download this for you!! Some Brides prefer a customized blend of music for their ceremony. Then again, some Brides prefer the standard ceremony music to be played for their wedding ceremony. If your wedding ceremony is outdoors, we can handle that too.
For Brides we have provided 3 highlighted links listed below under WEDDING FORMS to print out which are the Wedding Reception Questionnaire and the Bridal Party Introduction Sheet. The 2 WEDDING FORMS listed below are very important for both the DJ & the BRIDE to make sure BOTH have a complete understanding on what is to be expected throughout your wedding. Feel free to print this Request Sheet as many times as needed. Most Brides use this REQUEST link listed below to create a specific list of songs that work well throughout Dinner and when it is time to open up the dance floor. A separate REQUEST SHEET can also be printed for songs you DO NOT want played
Recommendations From Us
1) Look over the DJ contract carefully, Sign, Xerox OR screenshot a copy for yourself on your phone, then mail back to us with a 50% deposit
2) Contact the Venue and inform them you will need TWO 6 foot banquet tables for the DJ s equipment, preferably near an electrical outlet & the dance floor.
3) When trying to create your playlist of songs, keep your family & friends in mind.
4) One week prior to the big day call us OR text / email any music requests or event requirements. This is the perfect time to pay the remaining balance & write down any pronunciations of specific names. 4 days prior to your wedding, we recommend to contact us again to go over any last minute changes OR extra music downloads.
5) Don`t forget to ask about a handheld wireless microphone, special effects lighting for dancing OR mood uplighting for dinner...It`s All FREE.

Wedding Customer Testimonials
Scott was a pleasure to work with, his planning and preparation really helped our daughters wedding be a big hit.
Bride Brook Williams Wedding
S & S Sound rocked my Valentine wedding. Scott you were fabulous. We have not been in the North GA area too long. Your wedding (SnSSound) website was really helpful in finding a place within a few weeks. We wanted a small wedding with just close friends and family, no photo booth and wedding extras. Just good friends and some good tunes. We are thankful for you and our friends for coming through on such a short notice, especially with the crazy weather. Scott, again job well done.
Bride Kathy Murray
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did several weeks ago for my Christmas wedding. We were skeptical about going with a DJ at first because we went to wedding in September where the DJ was so over the top. You mentioned over the phone about being more laid back throughout dinner and then picking up the pace after dinner....that`s exactly what we wanted. You played what my guests liked...even my Grandfather danced. Thanks for returning my calls and emails throughout the entire planning too.
Bride Francesca Ellis
I called Scott with S & S Sound, when I needed a DJ for a Wedding Reception. Scott was always available to answer my questions and he worked closely with me in regards to any changes I wanted to make. I created a spreadsheet for Scott that listed the Reception timeline and announcements I wanted to be made during the Reception, as well as songs I wanted to be played.
Due to my Bridesmaids and I being late, the timeline I created got thrown off and everything could have easily turned into a disaster. Because Scott has experience as a DJ, not once did he fret..he tossed that timeline to the side and had my Wedding guest on that dance floor. He was able to make all the announcements, first dances, garter toss, bouquet toss, toast and music request, as if nothing had even fallen off schedule.
Scott was very professional and was able to accommodate our needs like it was second nature. He stayed calm and has a good ear for music to keep everyone in your crowd flooded on the dance floor. The age range for our Wedding guest was 2 yrs old to 85 yrs young and we all had a blast!!!
