What should I consider when selecting a DJ? Lisa M., The Heights
Make sure the DJ has been in business for many years. Ask your coordinator or catering manager for a referral. Make sure they are responsive and easy to get in touch with. It’s important to talk to them. Be sure they are willing to work with you and incorporate your ideas into the reception.
What unique elements can really make a wedding one of a kind? Roxanna R., Austin
Let your DJ work out the timeline. This ensures all the formalities get handled professionally and in a timely manner. Your DJ also makes sure guests are aware of everything that is happening so they can be part of the action. A professional DJ leads the bride & groom through all the formalities so they can get on with the party.
“How do I create a “wow” factor at my reception?” Carla M., Clear Lake
Lighting is a big element to take into consideration. We can transform the look of any room with “up” lighting. The walls can be changed to match the wedding’s color pallet. The bride & groom’s monogram can be projected on the wall or dance floor. It’s also really fun to project pictures of the bride and groom or fun videos.
Another unique party element is a photo booth. Guests love jumping in the booth and having their picture taken. Every picture has the bride & groom’s name and wedding date on it. The pictures print out as doubles so guests can glue one in the scrap book and write well wishes next to the picture. The guests have a keepsake and the bride receives a CD of every picture taken at her reception.
