As a company, we help support our local military servicemen and women with great music and fun entertainment.
Our San Diego Military Party DJs have mastered the art of military event entertainment and parties. Whether it’s a military wedding, holiday party, service branch ball, or private deployment party to celebrate with family and friends — we’ve got what you want.
Nothing matches the tradition of a military wedding. Typically held at a base or service academy chapel, this elegant ceremony is usually conducted by a military chaplain, although civilian clergy may assist. The ceremony includes dress uniforms, patriotic and military songs and decor, and of course, an archway of sabers or rifles. Receptions are held afterward at a base club or at a nearby event venue.
The chapel and chaplain are usually free of charge. The chaplain may require premarital counseling and may not allow photography during the ceremony. Base clubs are low-cost reception venue options, but they (like the chapel) book well in advance. If you’re having your reception off base in San Diego, be sure to inquire about a military discount.
Anyone serving, or has served, in any branch can have a military wedding. Current members, as well as veterans and retirees, can wear their dress uniforms. Grooms wear a full ceremonial dress while military brides have the choice of wearing their dress uniforms or wedding gowns. And since there’s a sword involved, the bride will stand on the right instead of the left.
Uniforms are not adorned with boutonnieres, but a military bride may still carry a bouquet. Uniformed groomsmen wear white gloves, with the exception of the groom and best man (so they can handle the ring). And all military grooms must be clean-shaven. Civilian grooms wear attire appropriate to the occasion.
Commissioned officers and their spouses depart the ceremony under an arch of sabers or swords, while non-commissioned officers and enlisted personnel are entitled to an arch of rifles. Provided by service members, the arch is a pledge of loyalty to the new couple by their “military family.” And a sword will appear during the reception for a refined and special cake cutting.
Military guests also wear their dress uniforms and the highest-ranking officers are honored with special places at both the ceremony and reception. With this type of traditional, formal wedding and its special military guests, be prepared for a receiving line.
Our professional event DJs are flexible and can cater to any vibe, so don’t let your military event fall flat. We start prepping early with the initial consultation.
