Ceiling Swag

Ceiling Drape, draped wall & stage, pinspots on cake at Springs Denton by Randy Ro Entertainment

We are typically asked to take pretty ballrooms and make them prettier!  The Springs in Denton is one of our favorite locations to work, not only because it’s an amazing place to get married and a huge value for the bride, it’s also one of the closest venues to our home.  It’s a perfect canvas for our services.  The fact that the management are some of the nicest people in the industry is beside the point.

In the photo above we’ve added ceiling swag, sometimes called spider drape, fabric swag, you name it, we’ve heard it.  Frequently we add twinkle lights to the drape, as well.  While it really doesn’t need the additional lighting, some brides like it, so, we do to0!

You’ll notice the cake was featured smack dab in the middle of the room.  Most Dallas lighting companies would put one light on this cake, if any.  Here’s the reason this cake pops so well in the photos and after the lights went down.  Randy Ro’s team did what we call 360 pin spotting.  Where ever you stand in the room and from any perspective the photographer wants to take your photo, the cake will pop in the background. We like to think you’ve spent a bunch on your cake and you should be able to see it in the photos.  (more on this in another post concerning your florals!)

If you are getting married at any of the Springs there are things we can do to enhance the room.  Some couples use everything we do, some Springs couples use drape & lighting, and some use only one service (can you say photo booth?)  Either way we are always excited to bring them into our family of happy clients.

Best to you!

Best Entertainment

It’s always a pleasure to be noticed for excellence!  Randy Ro Entertainment is nominated for “Best Entertainment” by the Dallas chapter of National Association of Catering and Events (NACE).  NACE is a premier organization comprised of top event professionals, including the catering sales directors from hotels, photographers, event & wedding planners, cakes, transportation services, officiants, rental companies, etc.

NACE’s mission is “To advance the catering and events industry and its professionals”. Their point of view is “In a world where margins are slimmer and expectations are greater than ever before, catering and event professionals must keep current on trends, produce creative ideas and continually build upon their network of innovate professionals to be successful and competitive. The National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) paves a clear career path for catering and event professionals that directly affects the way they do business and sets them apart as a professional in the hospitality industry.”

While we frequently get awards, especially client based awards, this means so much because it’s recognition from others in our own market.  Dallas has a thriving events industry that is one of the largest in the country.  It’s arguably one of the closest knit event families in it’s attitude and caring for each other’s success, as well. We fully believe that our success is because of our dedication to our clients, our industry, and our people.

Here’s to the success of your event!

Dallas Wedding Drape is what keeps us busy most of the week.  Room transformations are always high on our list of fun projects!  Some venues, while already fabulous, are also perfect blank slates to decorate!  The Windsor at Hebron Park in Carrolton is one of them.  It’s an awesome all in one wedding venue.  It has a beautiful chapel and, after you and your fiance tie the knot, your guests only have to walk a down the hall for cocktail hour.  The ballroom is one of our favorites to DJ and do lighting.  The walls are perfect for up lighting or wall wash.  The light color displays the lighting perfectly and there is a perfect wall for a monogram, break out, or any lighting design you or our Randy Ro lighting and wedding design experts can come up with (in this case, the very cool, Double Happiness sign).  Here is a photo from a recent wedding we did there for Wenly + Sean, with wedding planner, Christy Record – PS, I Love You, Hiram Trillo, Candlelight Films, and Windsor coordinator, Laura Ingram.Draping & Lighting by Randy Ro Weddings

It’s no secret that one of our favorite venues in DFW is the Ruthe Jackson Center in Grand Prairie!  Just about any week of the year, we are draping, lighting, DJing, videoing, providing photo booths, doing a slow motion video booth, providing “Dancing on a Cloud” for a couples first dance, pin spotting the cake, okay, enough already, the list is long!  It’s a perfect fit for us because RJC is one of the more progressive venues around.  Take a look at their Pinterest page and you can see the caliber of events they do.  We owe so much to Cheryl Allgood & Chip Nami!  Without Cheryl’s constant question, “Can you do this?”, we wouldn’t be the top company for elegant draping and lighting for Dallas Weddings!  The answer is always, “Yes, Cheryl, we can do that.”  Then we go figure out how!

Check out this photo by rock star photographer, Jim Rode!  Floral design by another rock star, Kate Foley!   Have you ever seen a floral arrangement that long?  (a trick to pin spot!)  Of course, the lovely draping is from Randy Ro!  Hand picked, custom fabrics, always!  Fire retardant, always. (don’t let the fire marshall make you take the drape down).  Crystal beading, not always, it’s personalized to you.  Chandeliers, by request!  Multiple chandeliers, sure, can do!  Why not, it’s your wedding!

We are fortunate to be the first call draping company in Dallas for many DFW venues.  One of our favorites is the Ruthe Jackson Center (RJC) in Grand Prairie!  Pick a weekend and we are probably adding ceremony drape and lighting.  RJC is a wonderful venue if you like the choice of an indoor or outdoor ceremony in Dallas or Fort Worth.  The garden and gazebo are stunning!  Which style drape do you prefer?

Randy Ro continues it’s goal of draping Dallas, one venue at a time!  Let’s visit about your wedding!

Draping is one of the best ways to upscale a wedding.  There are a few key points to remember when hiring a drape company in Dallas.  First, all fabric must be flame retardant.  You don’t want the fire marshall asking you to take the drape down minutes before your ceremony.  Second, it must be set up on a professional schedule.  Having guests arriving while ladders and workers are still setting up is awkward.  Most draping companies will have a staff that is working all day and can accommodate an early set up that leaves plenty of time.  Last, it’s important that your draping company works as a team with your other vendors.  Sometimes the florist may add flowers the draping.  It’s a good idea that there is communication in advance of your wedding day.

Excitement during bouquet toss

Bouquet Toss Song selection is important at an amazing wedding reception! An experienced MC/DJ will make sure everyone is ready (including your photographer) and that you actually have the bouquet before announcing it.  An inexperienced DJ, well, not so much!  On the subject of vendors, we highly recommend that you have a Wedding Planner.  They will save you money, help get you the best vendors, and help take the stress out of your day.  Your venue may have a coordinator but that is different than having a planner.

The bouquet toss is still popular at most weddings.  If there are only a few single ladies in attendance, sometimes the bride will honor someone by presenting it to them.   Here are the Bouquet Toss Top 50 songs as compiled nationwide by DJ Intelligence.  I believe we’ve played every song here for the bouquet toss except #49 (doesn’t have enough energy).  In the case of #3, we have a great edited version!

  1. Single Ladies, Beyonce
  2. Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper
  3. Move B***h, Ludacris Feat. Mystikal
  4. Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Pat Benatar
  5. Man! I Feel Like A Woman!, Shania Twain
  6. Only Girl (In the World), Rihanna
  7. Where Them Girls At, David Guetta
  8. It’s Raining Men, Weather Girls
  9. Wannabe, Spice Girls
  10. Another One Bites The Dust, Queen
  11. Little White Church, Little Big Town
  12. This One’s For The Girls, Martina McBride
  13. Milkshake, Kelis
  14. One Way of Another, Blondie
  15. Maneater, Nelly Furtado
  16. Girls, Beastie Boys
  17. Run The World (Girls), Beyonce
  18. Ladies Night, Kool & The Gang

  21. Call Me Maybe, Carly Rae Jepsen
  22. Oh, Pretty Woman, Roy Orbison
  23. Wishin’ and Hopin’, Dusty Springfield
  24. Girls, Girls, Girls, Motley Crue
  25. P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing), Michael Jackson
  26. Just A Girl, No Doubt
  27. Gold Digger, Kanye West, Feat. Jamie Foxx

We love working with Photographers, Lauren & Will Aves, not only cause they are fun to be with, because we know we are going to get amazing photos from the wedding!  We’re lucky enough to work several weddings a year with them.   We highly recommend Aves to any brides looking for their photographer.  I’ve also said this many times,  Lauren Aves is the best wedding writer I know!  Always new and always interesting.  Not really sure how she does it.  We recently booked a bride that had been reading Lauren’s blog for about 4 years.  When she got engaged, Aves was the first thing she booked.  (Okay, maybe the Piazza, Aves, then us)  Here is a link to Aves Photography Blog.

In March we provided Master of Ceremony and DJ for Meredith and Chad’s wedding at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, Texas.   Top vendor list included, Aves Photography, Kristen Knight from Shenanigans, Lisa Stiles, Opulent Cakes, and Sonny Gann, from LoveNotes!  The Piazza is a wonderful venue to work and you know everything is going to be great every time.  It is very popular so go see it in person and book early if you’d like to get married there. 

Speaking of Aves, here is a review of Randy Ro Entertainment from them:

“Reception Music/DJ – Randy Ro Entertainment

(Randy is the BEST!!!! Enough said. He keeps everyone dancing all night, and is 100% fabulously awesome! He’s one of the reasons you should consider a DJ instead of a band, for real {Not that we don’t love bands, because we do. But if it’s up in the air or you can’t decide, you should def check out Randy first to see what kind of entertainment would fit your party the best. The dancing is what makes the party fun.} We love you Randy!!)”

We love Aves!
