Why It’s Important to Vet Your Wedding Vendors

If you’d asked me a week ago why it’s important to vet your wedding DJ, I don’t think that “So he doesn’t boobie slap someone at the reception” wouldn’t have been on my list of answers. Now it will be, forevermore, even if the chances that your wedding DJ will play the boobongos there on the platform are pretty slim overall. Apparently, the following video – a clip from a Daytona Beach wedding from May of this year – has made the rounds in a big way, but in case you haven’t seen it, no, it’s not some viral marketing ploy. It’s the real deal.

The boobongo virtuoso you see before you is Fast Eddie, owner or perhaps manager of a Florida upholstery shop by day and wedding DJ by night. After watching the video, I had to know more – who is this guy? Luckily, the good folks at urlesque scooped the story. Can you believe that poor Fast Eddie didn’t get paid? I kid, I kid! But I also know some people who would be angry as h-e-doublehockeysticks on the inside when they saw this but would nonetheless pay their less-than-stellar boobie slappin’ wedding vendor the balance owed.

If you’re cringing right now, I feel your pain… videos of wedding vendors like this made me hyperventilate when I was planning my wedding. But never fear! We here at Manolo for the Brides have got you covered with tips for planning a wedding safely, knowing what to expect when hiring wedding vendors, and dealing with tricksy wedding vendors. Heed our advice and you’ll more often than not be in the clear!

That said, here’s a palate cleanser in the form of a grainy video of an iguana eating some poor couple’s wedding cake:

    I LOVE the igauna video! I laughed mostly because the creature decided to get in one last bite of cake before he was sent flying.

    Fast Eddie thought that was appropriate??? And was that woman just standing there waiting for it to happen as part of the act? She seemed amazingly calm and non-homicidal under circumstances.

    That iguana, OTOH, rocks my socks. Many’s the time when I’ve longed to throw off the shackles of civility and dive into a particularly scintillating cake like that.

    Of course, like the iguana, I would probably never get invited anywhere again, so I restrain myself.

  3. What on earth was happening on the stage in the first video? And I was grossed up completely after the watching the second one. Terrible goof-up.
