BEWARE celebrity wedding crashers!

By | Culture

If you are planning your Northern California wedding, you may want to put security arrangements in place to keep out celebrity wedding crashers. They are everywhere!

The list is shockingly long. These celebrities crave the spotlight. They lurk in the wings ready to leap into the spotlight and deflect attention on to themselves and away from the poor, unsuspecting bride.

TAYLOR SWIFT: celebrity wedding crasher!

Who, you may ask, are these dastardly celebs? Can you believe Taylor Swift?

I know, I know, everyone thinks Ms. Swift is this sweet, young thing. But at the first sound of wedding bells, who knows, she may show up at YOUR wedding, turning your entire celebration upside down. You’ll be the one in need of bodyguards!

JASON DERULO: celebrity wedding crasher!

And then there is Jason Derulo. Any singer with a hit song called “Marry Me” is a high risk celebrity wedding crasher, as this couple found out!

ANDREA BOCELLI: celebrity wedding crasher!

Even a legendary singer like Andrea Bocelli got in the act! He came all the way from Italy to crash a New Jersey wedding! Really, Andrea!

And the list goes on: Tim McGraw. Justin Timberlake. Bill Murray. Tom Hanks. Bill Clinton. Kevin Hart. Josh Gad. Jennifer Hudson. Even Queen Elizabeth! ALL have been caught in the act of celebrity wedding crashing!

Celebrities are coming out of the woodwork at weddings everywhere! I know you probably don’t have a security detail as a budget item for your wedding, but with the risk of celebrity wedding crashers at peak levels, perhaps you should bite the bullet, even if you have to take out a loan.

***

Okay, I’ve had a little fun with you. EVERYONE wants a celebrity to crash their wedding. However, in case Taylor Swift doesn’t crash your wedding, I have good news: Party Image Entertainment has a ridiculous library of music that we will bring to your wedding.

We can play any song you’d ever want to hear from Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, or Andrea Bocelli. You name the artist, we probably have the song that means so much to you, or we’ll get it.

It’s the next best thing to having a celebrity there. Besides, you don’t need celebrities to make your wedding magical. Your marriage is all the magic you’ll require. We’ll provide the DJ entertainment, fairy tale lighting, and photo booth to make it a celebration for the ages.


 

best wedding movies

Best wedding movies ever made

By | Culture

The best wedding movies are so fun. They unite an audience because everyone has wedding experience, either as an attendee or a participant. So when various antics, disasters, and human foibles are projected on the big screen, well, it can be delightfully entertaining.

Party Image Entertainment gets a big kick out of the best wedding movies, because we’ve seen it all in real life! When you entertain at wedding celebrations on a weekly basis, you can’t help but encounter some zany escapades that fall into the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ category!

I couldn’t help but laugh at a recent wedding ceremony that was held on a Sunday afternoon. The poor priest officiating the service kept referring to it as a funeral instead of a wedding. That got a ton of laughs. He explained that he almost never performs weddings on a Sunday, and that funerals are more typical on Sundays, so it was tough for him get his mind out of funeral mode and into wedding mode. (For the record, Sunday weddings can often times save you money, since most couples prefer Saturdays. Some wedding vendors offer more favorable pricing on these “off” days.)

Entertainment Tonight’s list of best wedding movies

Entertainment Tonight compiled a list of their favorite wedding movies in the video above. Here’s their list of their top seven, along with their respective box office receipts:

7. My Best Friend’s Wedding | $299 Million

6. 27 Dresses | $160 Million

5. Bridesmaids | $288 Million

4. The Wedding Planner | $95 Million

3. The Wedding Crashers | $285 Million

2. The Wedding Singer | $123 Million

1. My Big Fat Greek Wedding | $368 Million

There’s money in wedding movies!

The risk of watching movies like these is that most brides don’t have Hollywood budgets! Some brides get a little overwhelmed and fret that their wedding celebration will pale by comparison.

Your wedding can be better than a Hollywood movie!

Don’t worry, your wedding can easily exceed any you see on movie screens, even if your wedding budget is on the ‘normal’ side, which is most of us. Everything depends on the entertainment. If your guests are having fun, they aren’t even going to notice if your reception is a buffet or a sit down dinner.

Party Image Entertainment offers a rich selection of entertainment options with attractive package pricing.

Marriage is good for your health

Marriage is good for your health

By | Culture

We live to celebrate. No celebration is more special than a wedding.  Party Image Entertainment knows, because we specialize in wedding entertainment. But did you also know marriage is good for your health?

It’s true!  Another wonderful reason to celebrate weddings.

Comedians who like to poke fun at their spouses love to make marriage the butt of their jokes. For example:

In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.

In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.

But by the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

The longterm beauty of marriage

When you set aside the foibles of each of us and look at the longterm beauty of marriage objectively, you’re faced with a shocking realization: marriage is good for your health!  According to research, you will actually live a longer, healthier life if you’re married.

Marriage is good for your healthThis research was conducted by Scott Haltzman, MD, who is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University in Rhode Island. He is the author of The Secrets of Happy Families: Eight Keys to Building a Lifetime of Connection and Contentment.

Marriage health benefits

Check out these amazing facts.  Married people:

√ Live longer than single people.

√ Experience fewer strokes and heart attacks.

√  Have a lower risk of depression.

√ Have a lower risk for advanced cancer.

√ Survive longer when cancer does strike.

√ Are better able to survive major operations.

He looked at mortality rates for married women at age 45 years of age.  They have a 90 percent chance of living to age 65 verses unmarried women who only have an 80% chance of living that long.

The difference for men is even more dramatic.  Married men live on average 17 years longer than single men!

Marriage IS good for your health!

Marriage is so therapeutic to men, that a married man with heart disease will live an average of four years longer than a single man with a healthy heart.

And did you know that unmarried people spend twice as much time in hospitals as married people?

Both unmarried women and men have much higher rates of depression than their married counterparts, but with men, the differential is glaring.  Unmarried men are nine times as likely as married men to suffer from depression.

Former late night talk show host and funny man, David Letterman, even admitted that divorce is harmful to your health, but he had to insert a punchline, of course:

“According to a new survey, people who get divorced die early. People who stay married live longer. The difference is they just wish they were dead.”

Now, now Dave!  Let’s remain positive!  The research is in:  marriage leads to happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Marriage is worth celebrating!

Let’s celebrate!  As you plan your wedding celebration, check out our wedding entertainment services, our fabulous event lighting, and Sacramento’s favorite Photo BoothParty Image Entertainment is the wedding celebration specialists you’ve been hearing about!

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage.


 

how to tie a tie

How to tie a tie

By | Culture, Photo Booth

It’s true: a lot of men can’t be bothered to dress up for weddings or funerals. I see guys in cargo shorts and Hawaiian shirts at weddings and even their Aunt Mabel’s funeral! What gives? Maybe it’s because they simply don’t know how to tie a tie!

Party Image Entertainment provides a simple tutorial on how to tie a tie in the handy video above.

Don’t be embarrassed if you never mastered the art. You’re not alone, but it’s not hard, especially with the assist of this video. Watch it. Practice. You’ll have it mastered by the third knot!

Look impressive!

No matter what anyone says, a man wearing a tie is an impressive site.

Peyton & Eli Manning

Football greats, Peyton and Eli Manning wear ties talking to each other on the phone! If it’s good enough for a couple of guys with four Super Bowl rings between them and a combined net worth of $300 million, isn’t it good enough for you? And here’s the deal, you don’t have to be able to throw a football sixty yards to look like a hall of famer in a tie!

Michael Jordan

Basketball great, Michael Jordan, wears a tie just walking into Starbucks! If it’s good enough for a guy with six NBA titles and a net worth of more than one billion (with a B) dollars, isn’t it good enough for you? Don’t worry if you can’t slam dunk a basketball. Your coolness factor will skyrocket if you simply dress like Mike!

Zac Efron

Speaking of cool, Zac Efron wears a tie with sun glasses just to look cool! Now if a Hollywood heart throb and star of High School Musical flits about town in broad daylight wearing a tie, well, maybe you should sit up and take notice! If the only thing holding you back is lack of confidence on how to tie a tie, stop what you’re doing right now. Invest 107 seconds and watch the video above.

You need a tie for formal and semi-formal occasions

Party Image Entertainment doesn’t suggest that a guy can’t knock around in a t-shirt and a ball cap with the bill facing backward. But there is a time and a place for a suit, don’t you think? For example, if you get a wedding invitation that says formal or semi-formal, you’ll need to wear a coat and tie.

If you’re planning a wedding and you want to go the formal or semi-formal route, I encourage you to share this blogpost with your friends who may need a refresher course on how to tie a tie! With so many well-dressed guys in attendance, you’ll be sure to want a Photo Booth on hand to capture these fashion plates in action!

If you found this blogpost helpful, please share it. Thank-you.
