From our Shopping for a DJ section, you might already have read the question, "Do you have back-up DJs in case my DJ is ill or has an emergency?" And also our response, "The answer must be 'Yes.' If the service you hire doesn't have a back-up DJ on hand or on call, you could be left without a DJ on the day of your event. We always have back-up DJs on hand or on call!"

No one ever likes to think about the possibility that their DJ might be unable to perform on the day of their event. But, isn’t it possible the DJ you hire might get sick and be too ill to perform on the day you've retained them to render their particular quality of DJ skills? What about the unfortunate car accident that causes them to be terribly late or unable to arrive at all? And, what about not showing up due to a major emergency, e.g. a family member getting seriously injured or suffering a stroke? What happens in any of these scenarios?

Well, things DO happen, but, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Just in case any of the above dreaded scenarios occur, we have a back up DJ ready to fill in. Now, of course there's also our written guarantee in place which could translate into no fee being charged—regrettable for both of us, BUT also rest assured,
your emergency backup DJ is a dependable, professional entertainer who will not only fill your bill, but also has has access to the planning sheets prepared for YOUR specific event!

We're proud to say that the need for utilizing a backup DJ is very, very rare. All of us who have been certified to work through Music on the Strand are committed to take care of our health, accept the responsibility that goes hand in hand with serving as your DJ Entertainer, and proudly maintain our high standing in the Disc Jockey industry. (On another note, we have been called upon, on quite a few occasions, to fill in at the very last moment for other DJs who DIDN'T show up! (Unfortunately for the DJ industry, the reasons given all too often are
frequently just plain unacceptable! But, fortunately for everyone affected, on those awkward occasions, we've ALWAYS come through!)


Pawleys Island, South Carolina, located 70 miles north of Charleston and 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach, is known as one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast.

The families of rice planters who owned plantations on the nearby rivers first settled Pawleys Island in the early 1700's. The planters knew that it was unhealthy for their families to remain on the rivers during the summer and that the seashore was much healthier. Even though they didn't know about malaria in the 1700's, they knew enough to get away! They moved their families, horses, cows, bedding, provisions and furniture to Pawleys in May of each year, where they remained until the first frost in November!

From this leisurely existence has developed the charm of Pawleys that still remains. Also still remaining are 12 residences in the historic district, which date from the late 1700's to the mid 1800's. Pawleys continues to be known for its shoeless, carefree, laid-back life style, which includes crabbing in the adjacent creeks, fishing, the stories of ghosts, the rope hammocks and the unspoiled, unsophisticated, casual, delightful stretch of wide beach and sand dunes.

Creating Your Own Wedding Picture (Colors)

Adapted from an Article by Jeanette Hawkinson

Questions about colors and styles and how they fit together with each other are always a concern to couples. There is no one set of rules to go by any more. Dark colors are used in the summer as much as light colors. Light colors are sometimes used late into the fall and even during the winter months. Once certain styles of tuxedos were only worn at certain times of the day or evening. Now, all styles of tuxedos are acceptable at weddings regardless of the time of the ceremony. Some brides are now having each bridesmaid wear a different dress, instead of dressing them all in identical attire. Sometimes the bride may indicate a preference in color but allow each bridesmaid the freedom to exercise her own personal taste in style so she can wear the dress again to many functions.

You have probably attended or heard about several weddings in the Pawleys Island where the bridal party and all the immediate family members were dressed in the same color. I remember my aunts wedding when I was just a little girl and all the female relatives were dressed in a dark blue because it was my aunts favorite color. My aunts wedding dress was even a light colored blue. I can recall a wedding where the entire wedding party dressed in white except for the bride who wore a dress of soft pink tones.

A trend that has become popular, I noticed, is to have the bridesmaids attire made of cotton fabric. Cotton is a comfortable fabric to wear because it is a natural fiber that allows the body to breathe. A print dress can be dressed up for the wedding with a fluffy petticoat or slip and hair combs of matching fabric. When the slip and hair combs are removed, the dress can be put to more use in everyday situations than satin and taffeta materials that is traditionally used for the dresses. Sometimes cotton print dresses with large, bold-colored flowers can even be used to complement very formal satin and silk wedding dresses.

If a combination looks good to you and seems to go together, do not hesitate to use it just because it has not been done before. Couples should enjoy the freedom of designing and decorating their wedding in much the same way they will decorate the rooms of their home. Today it is a matter of personal choice more than anything else is.
