Wedding and Event DJ Event Success Checklist

Tales from the Photobooth Point of View

Music is the make or break factor that I have witnessed at most weddings and birthdays. When you hire a disc jockey, or DJ, for your event, you’re also hiring a Master of Ceremony. There is a checklist of things that they have to get right, and some intangibles, that should help you decide who to hire for your special event.

Playing Your Requests

Wedding or event pre-planning always involves a set list. What songs do you want to hear during your reception? What sytles of music do you want at what times? Any good DJ will crank out the jams, but are they the ones you wanted when you wanted them? This is the #1 complaint that we’ve read after the wedding is over. The DJ didn’t play the right song at the right time. Or they didn’t play it at all.

Our recommendation is that your wedding planner stay on top of the music selection.

Getting the Wedding Party Names Right

Introduction of the wedding party is the only time that your hard-working groomsmen and bridesmaids get their due. Any mistake, or slight bumble, must be avoided. With or without the help of your wedding planner, if they fail, nothing will stick out sorely in the days and years after the wedding than someone’s name getting butchered. A simple rehearsal with the DJ will make sure that these names are pronounced correctly. Your wedding party will thank you.

Raising the Energy Level

There are three moments during the reception when the DJ has to urge the guests to show the love. During the aforementioned wedding party introductions, when the dance music starts, and when the ritual events take place. Of these, the most important is when the bride and groom are announced publically for the first time. This is preceeded by the wedding party introductions. In today’s era, those folks tend to bring the energy themselves with dances move and more, but urging for more and louder love.

The energy level will then go down, as the traditional dances and more sometimes come after this. I would pay attention to the flow of events to make sure your guests, who will only have so much energy to give, give it at the right time. The DJ is in charge of letting them know when to hit the gas and when to sit back and recharge.

Review of Jacksonville Area Photo Booth Vendors – Part 1

This job of being a photo booth owner gives you the fun of going to lots of Jacksonville wedding and party venues. Of course, where there’s a wedding or party, there’s food, a DJ or band and a photo booth. With four years seving up Big Fun from St Mary’s in George to Palatka to Ponte Vedra Beach, we’d like to help you have Big Fun at your event, even if we don’t get to bring it.

Big Fun Foto Booth, located in Ponte Vedra, is a competitively priced full-service photobooth vendor. They always provide an Attendant who engages with your guests to get them to enjoy the booth experience. With a deep collection of props, they often rotate them during the event so you’ll get a good mix of silly pictures.

Booth Options: Big Fun offers three options: green screen, open air with a backdrop, or an enclosure. The LED AIR booth is a great benefit for Big Fun. It can match the colors of your event, or go all white for an elegant look.

Texting happens like this: your guests enter their phone numbers. A text arrives that links them to your very own event web page. There, all the picture strips, GIFs and Boomerangs are stored for one year. On their phones, they can see their photos first, then the boomerangs. As they continue to scroll, they’ll find all the rest of the photos taken that night.

Priced from $429 to $529, Big Fun offers value for your money and a great and lasting memory for you and your guests.
