Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. It can be overwhelming planning such a special day. One fact most people often overlook, is how much their choice of entertainment effects the reception. An Emcee or DJ often sets the tone of the environment, helps coordinate your reception, and provides entertainment for your guests. In fact, when asked, 81% of Brides asked after their wedding reported that they would have taken more time in choosing their entertainment. Modern Bride Magazine reports that typically 5% of a wedding budget is dedicated to entertainment, but nearly twice amount as people will remember your entertainment and the job they did for you.
Often, when couples come to us they are overwhelmed by the whole process and we simply want to help you. We want your event to be worry free as possible and help you celebrate one of the best days of your life. We provide great communication from the day we are hired to help you and be properly prepared so what you want is done. Every show is tailored to meet the specific needs that you set out. Most of all though, we enjoy doing what we do and get great joy in seeing people enjoy one of the best days of their lives. Dynamic Entertainment provides only seasoned and well-trained DJs for your event. We do not change who your DJ is at the last minute and put this in writing who your DJ is.
Dynamic Entertainment doesn’t stop there and can provide other services to you to help specialize your wedding. One service that continues to grow is monogram lighting. It enables you to project your customized image to most services. This effect offers an extra touch of class and provides a stunning effect to wow your guests. Several times throughout the year we are asked to and provide a extra sound system for wedding ceremonies. We also can provide video projection services for clients and continues to be a growing service for our business. Often couples want to show a slide show of their journey together, or have a tribute to special family members who are no longer with us. During the dance part, music videos can be shown that offers entertainment to everyone present.
When hiring a DJ, we suggest you consider the following tips for hiring a DJ
1) Meet personally with the DJ you are considering hiring. This may be simple, but people are often different in person than over the phone.
2) Who will be the DJ at my event? Too many stories have been told by couples of meeting a DJ that they liked enough to hire and share their special day to find out that the company they hired sent someone else not familiar to them or their needs. The best way to address this issue is ask the DJ company to put in the contract who will be your DJ.
3) Ask what preparations your DJ makes prior to the event and what their back-up plans are in case something goes wrong with their equipment, etc. This is rare, but it will make you feel much better on the day of your wedding knowing that your DJ is well prepared.
4) Be careful of specials and high pressure tactics to get you to sign a contract with a company. These companies are more interested in getting the sale than providing the service you desire.
5) How accessible is the DJ to us? This is one of the most important things we hear from brides, but probably one of the most important for a successful event.
6) Does your DJ have liability insurance?
