Involving Children At Your Wedding

KM Blog Header- Children at weddings

Previously we have talked about how to keep kids entertained at a wedding, but suppose you want to actually involve them? Like anything the age of the child depends on how much responsibility you can give them. Also depending if you want the child “just included” or if you want to “get them involved”.

 

Tasks for children

These are some jobs that can make the children really feel involved during the ceremony

 

Ring Bearer (6 years +)

Providing you put the rings on a pillow securely, it can be quite nice to have a child walk down the aisle holding the symbols of love. Obviously because it is a task that requires a bit of concentration, usually it is recommended for older kids (6 years old +) however any age can do this in theory as long as you have a responsible adult on hand as a backup

 

Flower Boy/Girl (3 years +)

Boys and girls throwing flowers everywhere is very cute and possibly the easiest way to involve a child in your ceremony. If they become temperamental on the day and don’t want to do it, or instead of spreading flowers they just make a b-line to the end of the alter it won’t ruin anything (and if fact be considered adorable).

 

Sign holder (3 years +)

Another cute idea simular to throw flowers is having kids walk down the aisle with signs like “Here Comes The Bride” or “Last Chance To Run”, etc. Again if they miss out on nap time and decide they don’t want to do it, it won’t affect the ceremony at all.

 

Junior Bridesmaid/Groomsmen (8 years +)

If you have slightly older children you can include them in your actual bridal party as “Juniors”. They don’t necessarily have to have all the same responsibility as the adults in the bridal party but it means they get to feel included and all grown up. You don’t need to partner them up with anyone nor have them sit at the bridal table is you do not wish but its nice thing to have.

 

Including YOUR Children

The task above can be used for your children, or family members, or friend’s kids, but these ideas are specifically for your children if you want to include them in the wedding

 

Unity Candle (3 years +)

Depend on what you want to include in your ceremony, a Unity Candle Light can be a beautiful way to include your child. You each light a candle and then together light a central one to show how you are all included.

 

Sand pouring (3 years +)

Similar to a unity candle, you all put layers of different colour sand into a glass and once it is finished you have a keepsake for your home.

 

Have them give a poem (6 years +)

If your little one has a lot to say, why not have them give a small poem or speech at the ceremony or reception. Nothing is more beautiful than earing your child wish you and your partner love and happiness

 

Special Dance (3 years +)

When you and your partner has have their first dance, it might be nice to have a special dance with your little girl or boy.

 

Did you do any of these at your wedding? Have you seen them done at other peoples? Do you have any other suggestions? Let us know in the comments below!

Best and Worse Times Of The Year To Get Married

KM Blog Header- Seasons to get married

Best and Worse Times of the Year to to get Married!

So everyone has their favorite time of year, whether you love snuggling up from the cold or sunbaking on the beach, the time of year you love may also determine when you want to get married. Through statistics complied by Easyweddings and our own personal experience we have broken down the days, dates and seasons which most couples like to tie the knot.

With this knowledge it may help you in determining what dates may fill up quicker than others and alternatively, when might be the cheapest time to get married.

 

Which DAY does everyone get married?

If you have gone to a wedding, chances are it was on a Saturday. Not surprisingly 62% of brides choose this day. And why not?! It’s the ideal day to party late without work the next day!

What is surprising though is Friday was the second most popular with 15% followed by Sunday 11%.

Weekday weddings although not super popular still of course happen, with 2% of couples getting married on Mondays, 3% on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 4% on Thursdays.

What this tells us:

If you want a Saturday, book as far in advance as you can, if however you are happy with either a Friday or a Sunday the rush is not so great and if you can do a weekday wedding you won’t be fighting much competition. However keep in mind that some venues are not always open during the week and some suppliers have other ‘day jobs’ meaning their availability may not always work on a weekday

 

Which SEASON does everyone get married?

According to the stats, Spring is the most popular time of the year with 37%. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the weather is just right. Autumn came in second with 26%. Summer and Winter were the smaller coming in at 19% and 18%.

What this tells us:

Getting married when it is cooler (25-28 degrees) is usually the best time. It’s not surprising of course with guys needing to wear suits and of course having your ceremony when it’s not raining or feeling like the Sahara desert. Be prepared for the kind of weather you want and adjust accordingly (so maybe avoid the 3 piece for the groomsmen in the dead of Summer)

 

Which MONTH does everyone get married?

The most popular month is October coming in at 15%, followed by November at 12% and September and April at 10%. The least popular time is June with only 4% of brides and grooms getting married.

What this tells us:

Book as far in advance for anything in October and November if you want a certain venue or supplier. We often get dates which we have to turn couples away because we get so busy.

One thing that these stats don’t say though is preparing for other events. Only 6% of couples get married in December, however because that time of year everyone is booking their Christmas Party, School Disco, or even some birthdays, it means that you are not only competing with other brides for venues and DJs, but with corporations, schools, and random individuals. Be sure you also book well in advance for December as well.

Also as you will see in the following section, even though only 9% of brides get married in March, almost every Saturday is getting booked up so regardless of what month you decide on, be sure you get things booked as quickly as you can.

 

2017 Dates which are already filling up (according to Easy Weddings and Komodo Music)

Some dates are already filling up like crazy so if you are getting married on one of these be sure you have booked your venue and suppliers NOW and have written confirmation on everything:

  • Saturday 25th February
  • Saturday 11th March
  • Saturday 18th March
  • Saturday 25th March
  • Saturday 8th April
  • Saturday 22nd April
  • Saturday 7th October
  • Saturday 14th October
  • Saturday 21st October
  • Saturday 18th November

 

Dates to be aware of that may also fill up/be expensive for your wedding

Apart from the above, there are also a few days which if you choose to get married on may also fill up quickly or be very expensive to have it on. These are usually public holidays, or weekends with a public holiday. Sometimes there will be a premium to have the venue/supplier and other times they just might get booked first so keep these dates in mind:

 

  • Australia Day Week- (Wednesday 25, Thursday 26, Friday 27 January)
  • Labour Day (WA) Weekend- (Sunday 5, Monday 6 March)
  • Easter Week (Thursday 13, Friday 14, Saturday 15, Sunday 16, Monday 17 April)
  • Western Australia Day Weekend- (Sunday 4, Monday 5 June)
  • Queen’s Birthday Weekend (Sunday 24, Monday 25 September)
  • Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day (24, 25, 26 December)
  • New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day (31 December, 1 January)

A NEW Komodo Music for 2017

KM Blog Header- new 2017

Greetings and welcome to Komodo Music 2017!

If you have been a client of ours for a while, get ready for some amazing changes this year. If you are brand new and this is the first blog you have ever seen of ours…yes, we are always this awesome!

 

Ok so in an effort to keep improving our company and service we have decided 2017 is the year of change. As such we are going to be doing lots of things to help improve your experience, our findability (shut up it is too a real word!) on Google and other social media, and focus more on what has been working for us and what hasn’t. All these changes are listed below, so let’s get into them!

 

Melbourne

After multiple years of trying to expand to Melbourne we have decided that it is not feasible. As such all our SEO and content will be removed about Melbourne (expect our venue reviews on the Melbourne venues). For the couple of inquires a year we were getting it seems silly to keep saying “Perth and Melbourne” so instead we are 100% Perth Based! (Although we will still happily go interstate or overseas to DJ your wedding or event) 😉

 

More blogs

This Year Komodo Music wants to do more new content for you. As such we have ensured the first Monday of every month there will be a new blog. The topics will be the following*

Jan- Wedding Expos For 2017

Feb- Best And Worse Times Of The Year For A Wedding

Mar- Children Involved In The Wedding

Apr- 3 Wedding Apps Every Bride Needs

May- Top 10 Ceremony Locations in Perth

Jun- Top 10 Unique Receptions in Perth

Jul- Top Modern Waltz First Dance Songs

Aug- Top Rumba First Dance Songs

Sep- Pets at Weddings

Oct- How To Pull Off An Amazing Proposal

Nov- What Every Bride Should Have On Hand

Dec- 5 Things Every Guy Should Do As A Treat Before His Wedding

*Blog topics subject to change

 

More Facebook/Twitter content

Last year you probably noticed a lot more content on our FB page and Twitter. This year we hope to keep that up so if you weren’t already, be sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

 

More advertising but fewer locations

For the last few years we have been looking at the best place to advertise our services. We have always gone to Expos and done online advertisement but results have been hit and miss. For 2017 we have made the following decisions:

  • Komodo Music will be at the eBridal Expo in January but not the second one half way in the year. This will be the only expo we will be doing in 2017 (unless an amazing opportunity arising which we can’t pass up).
  • Komodo Music will still happily be part of venue wedding open days if we are invited and we will inform you of the locations via our social media.
  • Komodo Music will be stopping its advertising in Easy Weddings as the cost no longer justifies the amount of leads they generate.
  • Komodo Music will be putting extra money into Adwords and Facebook ads meaning hopefully we will be popping up a lot more.

So that is the state of Komodo Music. Should you have any other improvements or suggestions you would like us to implement please let us know. If there are any blog topics you would like us to write about send us a message or leave a comment down below.

 

Thanks guys and girls, and we look forward to getting you up dancing in 2017!:-)
