children wedding bandsThere probably isn't a social occasion that's changed more than a wedding in the last generation--from gift registries to who pays for the wedding itself, the old Emily Post rules have certainly bent, if not broken altogether. But here's a caveat--while what are basically the logistics have changed, the underlying good manners of wedding etiquette have not. Here's how some of the trickier questions of etiquette are answered for the thoroughly modern, yet well-mannered, bride and groom (a modern touch--in earlier years, the groom was never included in much besides the wedding itself).

honeymoonersThere is a lot more to a wedding than just the ceremony and reception. The honeymoon is not only a time-honored tradition but also an opportunity to celebrate your recent union in privacy, somewhere wonderful. Allowing you and your spouse to start your marriage out on the right foot, the honeymoon is essential and should be an experience like no other.

But where is the right (and unique!) place to honeymoon for you and your spouse? Below you'll find our guide to the best honeymoon destinations of 2019, to help you and your partner enjoy and begin your marriage on a beautiful note.

So many factors go into planning the perfect wedding: creating the guest list, choosing a delicious wedding cake, deciding which colors work best together. The wedding reception band, too, is a choice that engaged couples often overlook, remembering at the last minute that they need to book a live wedding band that matches perfectly with the theme and style of their wedding.

Choosing the best band for your wedding can be overwhelming, but there are some simple items to keep in mind while deciding on the ideal atmosphere you want to create for your reception.

Lucky you!) This is the post-I-do to-do list, and it features some pretty key items. Checking them off will help you get your married life in order.

Musical Fantasy was recently honored by being selected as the band to provide the musical entertainment for actor, comedian, and humanitarian, Chris Tucker at his Foundation's kick-off event Saturday, July 18, 2015 in Atlanta, GA.  The black-tie gala took place at the Astor Ballroom of the St. Regis Hotel with many of the Atlanta "A-Listers" attending to benefit the Foundation.  The band was the perfect match for the event which required horns, cocktail, jazz and dance music. Music Garden is proud to have provided such a great band for this amazing event. Sylvester Parsons, bass Player/manager for Musical Fantasy, along with all of the band members, were excited to provide the entertainment for the amazing people that attended this worthy event.  He also would like to "Thank Mr. W Imara Canady and his staff for providing a flawless and very elegant production."
