remember when we said that we take this dj stuff seriously?

it turns out we love to have fun and incorporate games into your wedding reception!

When it comes to weddings, there is never a shortage of traditional activities. Here is a couple traditional events that can take place during your reception along withe a couple non-traditional games to potentially include.

bouquet toss

bouquet toss

The bouquet toss tradition is one that has existed for hundreds of years and evolved over time. In this tradition, brides toss their bouquet over their shoulders and into a group of single women. Whoever catches the bouquet is supposedly “next” to walk down the aisle. 

garter toss

The garter toss tradition is one that has existed for hundreds of years and evolved over time. In this tradition, the bride sits in a chair while her groom removes a garter from around her leg. The groom tosses the bride’s garter over their shoulders and into a group of single men. Whoever catches the garter is supposedly “next” to walk down the aisle.

the shoe game

shoe game

This is one of our favorite wedding games to play. The newly-married couple are seated on chairs in the middle of the dance floor, back-to-back. Both of the newly weds remove their shoes and exchange one so that  The newly weds will have one of their own shoes and one of their partner’s shoes. 

During the game, a series of questions are asked, and the answer is either “the bride” or “the groom” (same sex couples will be referred to by their proper pronouns, of course). The newly-wedded couple answer each question asked by our DJ by holding up the shoe of the correct answer. For instance, if the question was “Who usually cooks breakfast” and the answer is the groom, they should both hold up the groom’s shoes. Couples can either plan the questions ahead of time and have them written down somewhere, have the audience shout questions out, ask the guests to write questions down on paper, or use a combination of all three methods.

The point of the game is really just another way for your guests to get to know the couple a bit, but most of all, it’s for laughs and comic relief.  The best part was that the couple typically doesn’t know the questions ahead of time, which really adds to the fun!

anniversary dance

anniversary dance

Our DJ announces that it’s time for ALL married couples to get up and join the bride and groom on the dance floor. After the first bar or two of the song, we announce, “Anyone married less than 6 hours, please take a seat.” Everyone will get a chuckle out of watching the bride and groom leaving the dance floor. After a few more bars we will announce, “Anyone married less than 1 year take a seat.” After a few more bars we will announce, “Anyone married less than 5 years take a seat.

We keep doing this for each of the following marks, less than… 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 25 years, 30 years, 35 years, 40 years and so on until one couple is left standing. Once the last couple dancing has been identified, we ask the crowd to, “Please put your hands together and give them a round of applause.” If this is not already being done. Next we announce to the last couple dancing, “Since you obviously know what it takes to make it work, would you please give the bride and groom some advice on a long happy marriage?”

Your guests will love hearing their words of advice as well as recognizing a long-lasting love.

    Absolute Music made my wedding reception a night I will never forget! Always made sure we were enjoying the music and having a good time. People were dancing all night long, including myself! 10/10 would recommend to anyone needing a DJ and/or photo booth!

    I highly recommend Absolute Music!! They did a fantastic job at our wedding this weekend and kept the party going all night. Shane was awesome, so thoughtful and a lot of fun! We had so many compliments on the DJ, even from our older crowd that didn't dance and just enjoyed the music and watching others dance. The photo booth was a huge hit and the props were great! There was a little miscommunication through email so I recommend touching base once they arrive to make sure they have all your requests but that was very minor and other than that they were incredible to work with! I highly recommend them! Thank you so much Absolute Music!

    I will always recommend Absolute Music out of Dubuque! They did a wonderful job on my wedding Saturday (12-30-17). So many options for format of the photobooth print outs. Great props. Awesome at feeling out the crowd music wise. We had a largely older crowd and not many dancers. We still had MANY MANY complements from all different ages on the music and I saw people dancing that have not danced at other weddings I've been to. Wonderful mix of country, classic rock, pop... Wonderful sounding equipment. Very laid back and easy to work with in preparation of your special day!

    Absolute Music was so great to work with for our wedding this October! They had our dance floor FULL until the very last song shut off, and we still have people talking about how much fun the music and dancing were! Definitely recommend.

    Absolute music did an amazing job for our wedding. I would highly recommend them for any upcoming events you may have. They were very professional, accommodating to any and all request (even last minute changes we made a day or two before and that day), and the lighting was beautiful. The music selection was great and Shane knew what to play for the crowd We had so that everyone was entertained. We even had people from other weddings come in to ours to dance. I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were to work with! Thank you Shane for all your hard work on our wedding day!!

    We were in search for a DJ service and stumbled across Absolute Music through a few people suggesting them on Facebook. During the process they were emailing back within a day answering any questions we have and helping us plan the day. At the wedding they were friendly and approached us right away with questions they had. He walked around and introduced himself to the parents and our aunt who was releasing table and told them exactly what to do and how he would like to happen. He was able to walk us through exactly what we (bride and groom) needed to do and even assisted our matron of honor when she was getting cold feet about giving her speech. He approached us periodically throughout the night to check in on how things were going and if we wanted to hear anything specific. He went above and beyond his job duties to make sure our night was perfect. So if you are looking for an amazing DJ for your night I highly consider checking them out!

    Absolute music was great. We had them for our wedding reception. They were quick to set up, and most importantly kept everything running smoothly. The photo booth we ordered was great as well. Everyone that was working for absolute was very friendly and polite.

    These guys know what they're doing! I talked to them a few days before our wedding on the phone to go over fine details and they told me that Shane would be my DJ and he would take care of us and boy did he deliver! While on the phone I was told that I may be nervous but this is what they do, and when it came down to it, it showed. Shane worked hard with our event coordinator to alter our schedule as we fell behind. He was calm and relaxed the whole night working to make sure all were engaged and having a great time, he was personable and looked out for everyone's best interests the entire time. Great and easy company to work with.

    I was EXTREMELY pleased with Shane for our wedding... as you probably know, the event coordinator at offshore is awful, and Shane did everything to help us and make sure we had the best time possible... he took over things that should have been her job, and I was so thankful! We got lots of compliments on the DJ, and he truly enhanced our experience!!!!

    Amazing to work with we used them for DJ and photo booth and had a blast! All night long people were dancing and in the photo booth. We cannot say enough good things about them they made it clear from the beginning it was our day and would do everything they could to make it how we wanted it would use them again in a heat beat! Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!

    We used Absolute Music for our wedding this past weekend! Not only did they travel to us in Waterloo, but Denise was more than organized when she got there. She made sure to check in with us with her detailed check list before our reception began! She stopped at the head table several times during dinner to check out our drink situation! Yes she was our DJ not our personal Bartender!!! Me as the Bride, I can say I may have only left the dance floor for a total of 4 songs! She had us dancing all night!!! Can not say enough about her great service!

    Would 100% recommend Absolute Music. They provided DJ services at my wedding, and they were great! I was extra particular about my choice for a DJ because I wanted someone that would play spanish music. Being in Dubuque, I knew I was going to run into some challenges with the familiarity of servicing spanish music. They admittedly said they don't typically play much spanish music, but were open to working with me to make sure they were able to play what I wanted. I gave them my songs, and they ran with it in the best way. The dance floor was packed, and I did just what I had hoped on my wedding: danced all night long! They were extremely accommodating. They offer such affordable prices. Thank you, Absolute Music.

    Do you want to have fun at your wedding? Do you want an awesome DJ? Is having a good time at your wedding something that is important to you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your hunt for a DJ is over. We found Absolute Music through reviews nearly two years ago before the pandemic, and I am so so glad we did. When we needed to reschedule our wedding reception, Jered made it so seamless and simple, there was never a reason to worry. Our DJ Shane was the absolute best. What kind of DJ walks around asking for requests and making personal connections with your family and friends? Shane does. So many people asked our parents who the DJ company was. I will tell people again and again to choose them. We are forever grateful for such a fun night in such a strange time. We were all able to let loose and have fun! Thank you thank you THANK YOU Shane! You are the absolute best and we will recommend you all to anyone who will listen! 🖤

    The Kee High Prom guests stayed active on the dance floor (as noted by the chaperones), thanks to DJ Shane! The photo booth was a very popular and usually had a waiting line to get pictures. Great customer service and we look forward to more bookings in the future!

    My wife and I could not be more pleased with how our night went! All thanks to Shane who took care of us from the beginning when he showed up to set up to the end. We were on a bus taking pictures around Dubuque when Shane arrived, on our return he found us right away and walked through the details of what was going to come next. Instantly we felt at ease knowing Shane was in control and would make our day one to remember! Shane was very professional and was welcoming to our friends and family. Definitely reccomend Absolute Music for any large gathering! Again 10/10 reccomend!! Thanks Shane and absolute music!!

    We had Shane as our DJ for our wedding this past weekend. He was phenomenal!! The entire experience was perfect. He interacted with our guests, kept everyone entertained(ages newborn to 93 years old!!), and always had a smile on his face. He threw in a few surprises for us, and they will be remembered for years to come. Our day would not have been complete without Shane and Absolute Music. I can’t recommend them enough!!!

    I cannot praise Absolute Music enough! Planning a wedding is stressful enough but add a non-responsive DJ on top of that. My husband and I decided to let go of our previous DJ and we hired Absolute Music for our October 4th wedding and we are beyond happy we made that decision. They were always extremely responsive with my questions and very organized.The day of my wedding Mike was absolutely perfect. He constantly communicated with myself and my husband to ensure things went smoothly. If he had questions or suggestions, he came up and talked to us about it. He was also so incredibly attentive to us and the entire head table. We never had an empty drink in hand. He made sure my husband and I were well taken care of but he also made sure to keep the party going and the guests dancing with great music. I absolutely loved his touch of "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast during dinner. He also had me use the Best Man as a chair (I sat on his back while he was on his hands and knees) during the garter toss and it was awesome. The videos of that are hilarious.THANK YOU SO MUCH ABSOLUTE MUSIC!! You made the rest of the planning process easy and helped make our big day absolutely perfect.

    Excellent job! Absolute Music was great to work with and our guest had a blast at our wedding reception. We had the photo booth as well and everyone was raving how fun it was. It is so nice that there is so much room for more than just a couple people to be in the pictures. The music and photo booth were a big hit. Our wedding went great thanks to Absolute Music. They set up before our guest arrived and were so easy to work with. We would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a DJ and/or a photo booth.

    Absolute Music is the best D.J. company you will ever find. I have attended many events that Absolute Music provided both the music and the photo booth as well. Mike and Olivia Foht do an excellent job of keeping the party hopping. They are always professional looking and accommodating. The best part of a wedding is the photo album presented to the new bride and groom. As well as any other events. The album allows them to see the comical and fun sides of their guests. They provide a copy for the guest as a rememberarance of their fun! Absolute Music has many different types of music to choose from, and they cater to any age group! Absolute Music is fanominal!

    We had Absolute Music for our wedding in May as our DJ and Photo Booth. They were amazing! Leading up to the wedding, they were very professional and easy to communicate with. At our reception, they had the dance floor full the ENTIRE night. Our guests were begging for them to stay later, which they were kind enough to offer to do. They also kept all ages entertained with their fun and exciting photo booth! Whenever they had a question, they found my husband or I immediately (which was difficult with such a large crowd)! We were beyond impressed and would recommend them to anyone getting married in the surrounding area! Thank you SO much absolute Music!!!

    Brad and Mary did a fantastic job DJing our wedding! We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with; they asked for feedback and followed up with how we were doing throughout the night and were on top of all our music wants and needs. We appreciate everything they did for us and especially want to point out how helpful Mary was in gathering the wedding party and even getting us drinks. The photo booth was also a big hit and we want to thank Denise for taking charge of that and putting together a scrapbook of all the memories made in the booth.Amazing to work with; thank you all!

    Our DJ went above and beyond. He played great music and would go around and tell people what was going on next so I didn't have to. It was a blast! The photo booth was so much fun, too

    @bsolute music was great to work with. We had DJ Shane and he was super accommodating to work with and we highly recommend using him for your DJ services! We used them to hold a DANCE PARTY and PHOTO BOOTH at Hills and Dales in Dubuque, IA. Shane was great! The photo booth was a huge hit! He had multiple props that people of all ages could use! Shane took song requests and played everything that was on our list! He was knowledgeable on current songs that would get people dancing!! We can’t say enough great things about Shane and @absolute music! We will be using them again 🙂

    We had Absolute Music at our wedding and they were nothing short of amazing! Not only was our dance floor packed the whole night but they also ensured not only my new husband and I were happy but also our parents. That was amazing! They asked when we wanted certain songs, if we were happy with the music, and if certain guest recommendations were okay. They made sure we got what we wanted while also ensuring our parents got what they wanted! They made our wedding night perfect! I HIGHLY recommend them if you want a DJ that will ensure your wedding is how YOU want it! I’d give more than 5 stars if I could! ❤️

    Brad and Mary did a fantastic job DJing our wedding! We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with; they asked for feedback and followed up with how we were doing throughout the night and were on top of all our music wants and needs. We appreciate everything they did for us and especially want to point out how helpful Mary was in gathering the wedding party and even getting us drinks. The photo booth was also a big hit and we want to thank Denise for taking charge of that and putting together a scrapbook of all the memories made in the booth.

    Amazing to work with; thank you all!

    Having Absolute Music do the music at a birthday party & the 4th of July Derby was guaranteed fun! Requesting your favorites, not a problem. And, the photo booth can be silly or serious, whatever suits your mood. Can't wait to experience Absolute Music again soon. 5 stars all the way.

    Absolute is great - they aren’t stuck on a preset list - they sense the crowd and continuously adapt so the experience just keeps building. They should be your FIRST CHOICE, big or small - you will never be disappointed! I’ve known, used and enjoyed this terrific team since 1997!

    DJ Mike was a few minutes late, which stressed me out some, but I wanted to say, that I was so impressed with the overall experience at our wedding.

    He was extremely helpful, attentive, stopped by to confirm/ask questions. He worked so hard to make the night perfect.

    We are so grateful to have had him keep the jams going all night and our guests were out on the dance floor all night.

    So unbelievably happy with this service. I threw several last minute changes at him as my violinist couldn't show up, and we removed some games and such happening that night, and he crushed it. He also stopped by a few times to ask my groom and I if we needed anything, a drink, a song etc.

    He was great. wanted to express my happiness with absolute music!

    Perfect DJ for our wedding!

    I'm used to attending events where Absolute Music is running the show and knew these guys were a no brainer for our wedding. Absolute Music was an absolute treat-- from intake to the service day-of, they were top notch and clearly know what they're doing.DJ Shane rolled with the punches on a non-traditional setup and made sure everything was going as planned. Even though we didn't have a real dance-y group, Shane was on point with all the classics (and even my favorite remix) to keep everyone having fun.I cannot recommend Absolute Music enough for your next event.

    My husband and I had the pleasure of having Absolute Music at our reception at our wedding in October 3rd. They were AMAZING. Super flexible and know how to have fun! I told the DJ I wanted to honor my dad in heaven by playing a certain song and he was prepared with a short speech before introducing it! The dance floor was full all night after! I would 100% recommend having them at your wedding!

    Absolute Music did a great job at our reception this Saturday! The photo booth was great (I love that I get copies of all the digital photos) and the DJ did a great job tailoring the music to keep people on the dance floor. They were easy to deal with when setting everything up and really handled everything that day so I didn't have to do anything. Would totally recommend them!

    We book Absolute Music each year for our high school homecoming dance. They are hands down the best service around. The students have a blast and really enjoy how receptive the DJs have been to their requests.Last year, students wanted a dance-off, which they asked for in which the middle of the event. Shane went with the flow, and your would have thought that he had been planning it the whole time! Great experience; we will continue to use Absolute for years to come.

    We had Brad and Mary from Absolute Music do our wedding reception and we had nothing but compliments on them! They were flexible when I changed something with our intros last minute and played a wide variety of music that kept tons of people on the dance floor until the very end. Our venue told us they had never had that many people stay until the end! All in all they did an awesome job and were super flexible and kept us informed of their plans throughout the entire night! Nothing but great things!!

    Very organized and professional. They played music for ceremony outside and then reception inside. All I heard from our guests is that they were impressed with the music and how they could hear speeches even in the back of the room. I would highly reccomend them!!! 🙂

    I haven't used their services personally, but my husband and I had the honor of working alongside Shane at a wedding we photographed. He was so friendly and professional, awesome at communication and making everything run smoothly, and so good at reading the crowd. Grateful for the chance to work alongside Absolute Music!

    Wow, what can I say? DJ Mike H. Was fantastic (probably the best we have ever experienced), he judged our crowd with attention to detail and everyone loved the music that was played. I was also amazed at how many of the requests he played without making the selections sound too random. Absolutely brilliant! In addition to the DJ service which is why we hired them, we also had a photo booth and yard games. This was an excellent way to entertain the kids as well as create lasting memories for all of our guests. Highly recommend these services as well as not all of our guests where huge dancers and this gave them something to do while enjoying the night with us. Up until the event Jered helped us out with all the details which led us to not have a single worry going into our big day. The planning tool these guys use handled everything and could have not been easier. Now I understand why these guys have 20x more 5 star reviews than any other company within 200 miles. They are professional and understand how to make newlyweds feel comfortable. Thanks again and myself and guests will highly recommend you to all of our friends and family.

    Do you want to have fun at your wedding? Do you want an awesome DJ? Is having a good time at your wedding something that is important to you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your hunt for a DJ is over. We found Absolute Music through reviews nearly two years ago before the pandemic, and I am so so glad we did. When we needed to reschedule our wedding reception, Jered made it so seamless and simple, there was never a reason to worry. Our DJ Shane was the absolute best. What kind of DJ walks around asking for requests and making personal connections with your family and friends? Shane does. So many people asked our parents who the DJ company was. I will tell people again and again to choose them. We are forever grateful for such a fun night in such a strange time. We were all able to let loose and have fun! Thank you thank you THANK YOU Shane! You are the absolute best and we will recommend you all to anyone who will listen! 🖤
