Melbourne Dj hire have worked at many Chinese weddings. We probably send a Melbourne Dj to at least one a week. This weekend we worked at a Chinese wedding at a lovely venue in Ripponlea called Quat Quatta.
Chinese weddings usually start very early during the day where the bride, bridesmaids and family are up at the crack of dawn. To get their hair and make up done at their house. Then usually the groom will come to the brides house to collect her and barter with the bridesmaids at the front door before he can see his bride. Then the bridal party head to the grooms side of the family to have a tea ceremony to serve tea to all their family members and also have a lunch at the family home.
Then after that everyone heads to a chapel or the venue where the couple will officially get married. Then photos are taken and lastly everyone head to the reception where our Melbourne Dj is. Most likely there are little canapés where the guests are mingling, prawn twists, dumplings and spring rolls. There is usually a very decadent 8 course meal at Chinese wedding with fancy dishes like abalone, shark fin soup and lobster.
Throughout the night the couple usually will visit each table for ‘yum seng’ which is a cheers. And naturally the bride and groom will usually get quite intoxicated after all those tables. But they have been known to ‘cheers’ to non alcoholic champagne.
Then after speeches then it is the Melbourne djs moment to shine. A lot of the Chinese clients like the old school RnB music and we usually mix in a bit of commercial pop and some 70s music for the older guests as some do like to tango. But usually it is rnb for most of the night until the venue closes.
So it’s a very jam packed day for the bride and groom at a Chinese wedding and Melbourne DJ hire come in at the end to let them let loose on the dance floor.
