Atmosphere Productions: CT Wedding Music DJ
There are a couple great sites to check DJ Reviews (www.weddingwire.com, www.theknot.com, www.google.com). You can even type in a search term such as “DJ XYZ Complaints” to see if there are any NEGATIVE posts out on the internet before you hire your CT Wedding Music DJ.
Choosing your Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment should not be one of the final details. In a recent survey of brides-to-be, they ranked choosing their wedding photographer more than twice as important as their Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment. Let us think about this – sure, wedding photography is important when it comes to capturing the moment. If your photographer didn’t show up – the wedding and reception would go on just as planned.
Without your Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment – things come to a screeching halt. People would leave soon after dinner without the musical entertainment of your Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment. So why is it that people pay $3,000-$5,000 on average for a wedding photographer and they look to pay only $800 for a bargain disc jockey?
Here is some food for thought. The average New England banquet facility charges around $75/pp for the meal. With an average wedding comprised of about 125 guests, that’s over $9,000 in meal cost. The 18% gratuity on that alone is nearly $2,000. A top-quality Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment would cost you between $1,500-$2,000. That’s less than the gratuity on the meal!
Remember that $75/pp meal will only occupy guests for less than 2 hours out of the average 5 hour reception. Your Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment is responsible for everything from when guests arrive until the end of the night. Your banquet staff will disappear into the background. Their job is done soon after the meal service is complete. It is time for your Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment to bring the event to a party atmosphere.
Let’s look at your wedding budget for a minute. The difference between a low-end disc jockey and a true top-notch professional Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment is less than $1,000. What other items in your wedding budget can be eliminated to facilitate obtaining a better wedding reception entertainer?
Printed Napkins – $150
Cake Knife Set – $75
Toast Glasses – $75
Ice Sculpture – $250
Floral Centerpieces – $40/table = $600 (can be replaced with inexpensive votive candles)
Wedding Favors – $250
Not one of these items would be missed if they were not present at your New England wedding reception. Without the best available Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment, your party could be a flop from the moment people walk in.
We’ve all been to events where the Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment plays “Kenny G” music throughout cocktail and dinner as if guests are not supposed to notice that they are just playing the same CD. We’ve gone to events where the Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment plays the same music in the same order as the last person’s wedding without any regard to the crowd or what they are reacting to or not reacting to.
There is even a National Wedding DJ selling copies of his ultimate wedding playlist currently as if every wedding is exactly the same! At the DJ Network – we never treat your wedding as if it were “just another wedding.” We will always work with you to personalize your experience to make it uniquely your own.
Choose wisely and make sure your New England wedding budget keeps emphasis on the important things that will guarantee you a successful New England wedding reception and not one where guests stare at their wrist watches looking for an opportunity to sneak out early due to lack of quality Connecticut Wedding DJ Entertainment.
