10 Tips for Planning the Perfect Event
Planning a wedding or special event? I understand the anxiety and stress that can sometimes be affiliated with the process. After attending and entertaining at thousands of affairs, I’ve compiled a great list of ten pieces of advice and tips that can help you figure out the perfect special day. Read more below!
When picking songs for special moments, close your eyes and think hard about that moment. What song makes you feel the same way?
Try not to overdo it with a hundred tracks. Look at around 20 songs you like and a few you don’t, and let the DJ fill in from there.
If there are older guests, it might be a good idea to sit them away from the front of the speaker(s).
Avoid obscure locations for DJs, like the corner. Ideally the wedding DJ needs to be easily visible and near the dance floor so they can get a visual of how your guests are reacting to the music.
During your party, keep in mind that your guests will want to be with you. Which means, if you are on the dance floor, your guests will be too!
Try not to micromanage the timeline. As DJs, we need to know the order of events but not necessarily the exact time for each. The best wedding DJs and event DJs are often flexible.
During any event, especially during the day, keep in mind that darker is better - unless an important moment occurs, such as cake cutting or toasts. Use dimmers for chandeliers and any house lighting. Any dance floor lighting will add to the atmosphere!
If you have a bar or photo booth, try to put it in the main room where the DJ is set up. The goal should be to keep people near the dance floor at all times.
Remember, while you may always want to leave the guests wanting more, it is not your responsibility to entertain your guests until dawn. Have fun and enjoy yourself!
If you have to cut corners on your budget, don’t skimp on your entertainment — it truly can make or break your event!
