Love Your Brides Maid?
Your wedding day is a day carved out especially for you and your new groom to show the world just how in love you are. The wedding day is such an emotional and tear jerking occasion. Some tears are of joy, some are of sadness, some are of longing for what you have.
For quite some time, I’ve wondered if this lovely day can be any lovelier? If it can be filled with even more love? As a blushing bride, how can we spread the love without raining on our parade of love? And then it came to me! Not out of thin air, but through a video on social media; which is kind of like the same thing; Thin air and Cyberspace?
But anyway! The answer came to me when I saw this video and about fell out on the floor crying. It was the most amazing show of love I had seen at a wedding yet.
Here’s how it went. The wedding happened. All the love and cheers for the bride and groom had filled the day. And then came the time for the bouquet toss. A group of the hopeful ladies crowded onto the dance floor behind the bride. There was about 30 women on that dance floor, but there was one very special one there in particular, The Maid of Honor, who had been longing to get married to her longtime boyfriend. The bride proceeded to pretend to fling the bouquet over her shoulder but did the old bait and switch.
She turned and handed the beautiful bouquet directly to her Maid of Honor, who needless to say, found this to be a great surprise. A moment later, the Maid of Honor’s longtime boyfriend dropped down on bended knee and proposed to her right then and there on the dance floor! The Maid of Honor screeched and cried yes, yes, yes!
The crowd burst into cheers and I burst into tears, as will your beloved Brides Maid or Maid of Honor should you decide to show this much love at your wedding. I must say this was a great one, and you know what? This idea doesn’t only go for the ladies, it works perfectly with the fellas too. So give it a try, you will certainly change someone’s life! Take a look for yourself, Surprise Proposal.
The Cutest Ring Bearer Ever!
Boy oh boy! What a difficult choice. With so many cute little boys in your family, how do you pick just one? There is your little brother, your little nephews, your tiny twin cousins, what a sticky spot you’re in! At Gold Starr we say think out of the old ring-box and get creative.
Yes, we realize that there is only one ring box but that doesn’t mean you have to have only one bearer participant.
Here’s the plan!
Pick the most responsible 3 year old you can find and then surround him with a few “Bearer Body Guards”. Not only will you spread the love amongst the little hero’s in your family, but your wedding guests will absolutely love the sight of this! There is nothing cuter than “A Ring Bearer Secret Service” strutting down the aisle carrying the precious stones needing to make a safe and lifelong landing to your fingers, so make it count!
Give us your thoughts on this plan and send us some pics of your Ring Bearer Secret Service!

2106 was a huge year for some of the greatest songs of all time. Songs with light, heavy, fun, sexy, and spunky themes. The reception dinner songs have remained pretty much the same year after year – Frank Sinatra, Lionel Richie, Celine Dion- but the after dinner songs are ever changing and moving to new tunes. Yes there will always be the infamous Y.M.C.A by the Village People and Material Girl by Madonna as “all crowd” entertainment but luckily for us we get to experience spinning what’s considered current and representative of the now! But is it really?
Here are the top 10 wedding reception songs of 2016:
- Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
- Journey – Don’t Stop Believing
- Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who loves Me)
- Walk the Moon – Shut Up and Dance
- Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
- Pharrell Williams – Happy
- Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline
- Cupid- Cupid Shuffle
- Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
- Black Eye Peas – I Gotta Feeling

Best Wedding DJs!
Not only does Gold Starr Entertainment have the best Wedding DJs in Southern California, but many have said that we have the best DJs in California! Often times we encounter couples who have no idea what a real wedding DJ is and finding themselves confused or near hiring an ordinary DJ. Because so many are under the impression of there being no difference between the ordinary and extraordinary we are here to educate you. There is absolutely a huge difference between an ordinary DJ and an extraordinary Wedding DJ.
The ordinary DJ is a guy or gal who shows up ready to play a recycled and prerecorded playlist where they may insert a tune or two upon a special request during your wedding reception. Transition, Tempo and Excitement is key! The extraordinary Wedding DJ is quite the opposite. Unlike the ordinary, your wedding DJ will prepare a custom reception playlist based upon your unique playlist with a live set complete with professional moments of master of ceremony excitement.
Your extraordinary Wedding DJ is so very important to the successful functionality of your wedding and reception because he or she is actually the lead taker and dictator of the smoothness of your wedding and reception. A professional and seamless wedding and reception is what every couple deserves, so do yourself a huge favor; instead of saving a few dollars by booking an ordinary DJ. Save yourself a huge amount of disappointment and stress which is priceless for your special day. By spending your money wisely and book one of our extraordinary best wedding DJs who is also a Master of Ceremony you will experience a magical and whimsical wedding and reception of your dreams!
Wedding Tastings are a necessity when it comes to making sure that all is picture perfect. Just as your wedding is no small occasion, neither is a real Wedding Tasting. So many don’t understand the importance or the process of these tastings and if you happen to be one of these who are in the dark, never fear because after reading this post, the light will come on nice and bright!
The Wedding Dinner is not just any dinner; it is an expensive and well thought out thank you gift from the bride and groom to all guests. A formal occasion where attendees dress formally and prepare to eat with their best manners – this plated meal must also be served at its best.
Conducted by the chef of the hotel, country club, or any venue where your wedding will be taking place, you should come hungry to the tasting of your selections given to your planner and managers of the venue.
Here are 5 simple steps to a perfect Wedding Tasting:

3. An appointment/reservation will be made for your tasting with up to 4 guests (including yourself and your fiancé)
4. The tasting will be conducted as if at your wedding reception and cocktail hour.
5. During your tasting you will finalize your menu and all will be set in for your special day!
Now that you are equipped with the know how when it comes to having a perfect Wedding Tasting you will no longer rely upon the delicious photos and tasty words printed on the menu, and NOW you can tell your wedding planner that you are ready for your perfect Wedding Tasting!
