You know those event horror stories? Everyone’s got one, and we’re here to share a quick one with you.

A friend of ours planned their wedding reception with karaoke (how fun is that?!), but the DJ’s laptop decided to quit on them right as the reception was getting started. No music whatsoever.

In the heat of the moment, someone stepped up, plugged in their phone, and hit play on a Spotify playlist. And guess what? Everyone had a great night of dancing and singing.

The lesson here? Events don’t always stick to the script, but a flexible, open-minded attitude can ensure that the party is still fun for everyone.

Keep that in mind for your next event! Your event horror stories can have happy endings!
