Hitched 2.0: The Best Song Suggestions From Our Guests

I can’t remember the last time I received a wedding invite that didn’t prompt me to suggest a song that will get me groovin’ on the dance floor.

Hitched 2.0: Wedding Planning Taught Me How To Ask For Help

I’m terrible at asking for help. I’m one of those people who will drive myself insane trying to do everything alone rather than dare reach out for assistance.

Hitched 2.0: 10 Questions To Ask A Potential Band Or DJ

Some might argue that the music is the most important part of a wedding reception.
