Wedding Tips – Your name in lights! – Gobo light!

This question comes up all the time: What is a gobo light?

A gobo light is a special light that allows me to project your name or logo onto the wall or dance floor and put it in lights.

This is a great method to commemorate a wedding or other special occasion.

You should really consider this when you are getting married. This is something that really adds to the personalization of your wedding day.

Wedding Tips – When should you book your dj? 6 months, 1 year, a year and a half ahead of time?

This is a really good questions that I get asked all the time. People will ask me when do you need to know that I want to hire you for my wedding?  The best answer I can give you is this: the sooner the better. If you want a really good dj, then you should be booking them after you pick your venue. They should be right up there with the photographer and the caterer. Of course, there are many djs you can pick up at the last minute. Let’s remember though we are not a commodity like sugar. All sugar is relatively the same so price is the determining factor.

I would rather compare us to a fine dinner. You are willing to pay more for a fine dinner because you know you are going to savor and enjoy it. It should be the same with a great wedding dj. This should be someone who’s work you will enjoy and you will be able to look back on with fond memories!

Really popular days are already being booked 1.5 years out, other dates a year, and some six months ahead of time.

The importance of a wedding dj!

When your family and guest look back on your wedding what are they going to remember most? They will remember where you had the wedding, how wonderful you looked, and they will remember whether they had fun or not.

The average cost of a wedding today is around $25,ooo dollars. Brides will go to a lot of expense to make their day great. Make sure you spend enough money on your entertainment! Don’t think that all wedding djs are the same. Experience matters, personality matters, the ability to make announcements matter, and the ability to get your guest dancing matters.

The average rule of thumb today is that you should spend 8 to 10 percent of your total budget on entertainment for your wedding! Make sure you ask the important questions when hiring a dj.

Also, make sure that in this amount you save some money for lighting as well. Whether you wedding is inside or outside you can benefit from lighting. Make your wedding elegant by choosing the right lighting. After all, you want this to be a day to remember for years to come!
