Book your perfect wedding disco by booking East Anglian Mobile Discos.
This article sets out some advice on what clients should consider to ensure they make the right choice for themselves.
1. Initial contact
Many clients make initial contact by email. This is a great way to ask some initial questions and to glean information from their website or other social media sites without feeling committed.
Usually after an initial email exchange I would highly recommend a phone call or a Skype/FaceTime to talk further about your plans and what the disco can offer you. You can tell a lot from how somebody sounds and whether you think they are the right person to entertain you and your guests.
2. Experience is king
My view is that it takes many years to become a competent wedding DJ. There’s a lot of work and dedication required. This includes, a vast knowledge of music, ability to read the audience, effectively communicate to guests and other providers such as the photographer, caterer and the venue.
I would strongly advise anyone looking to book a DJ that they ask a few pertenant questions to give you sufficient peace of mind that they can offer you the service you require.
3. Meeting your wedding DJ
Most professional DJs offer a free meeting option with their perspective clients. This can be prior to booking them, or possibly later to discuss the final arrangements for the wedding. Again, this is an opportunity to understand more about what they can offer you, and answer other questions. The meeting can also take place at the wedding venue. This is particularly useful to both the client and DJ to discuss the layout of the room etc.
The whole party/reception will be a success if you & your guests have a great time by dancing the night away.
An experience wedding DJ will play the music you want for all age groups and have a detailed understanding of all music genres and be willing to play your requests.
If you are having a traditional ‘first dance’, your DJ will ensure he has your special song and that’s played at a time to suit you.
What about playlists? I encourage my clients to have input into into the evenings music. I welcome playlists. My advice to clients is always to allow sufficient space to allow guests to make requests during the evening.
Don’t rely on all disco lighting being the same. My advice would be to ask a few basic questions.
Their most important thing is that the lights must be fully controlled and that are not shining in everyones faces!
For the ‘first dance’ I would personally offer a wash or spot light or possibly white of red hearts for that wow factor. Photographers also love this option for your first dance photos.
Mood or uplighting is also a great option which offers that wow factor. You should be able to select the colour of your choice.
6. Those finishing touches
One thing that makes your perfect wedding disco are those finishing touches, but can your disco offer these?
Confetti canons for your ‘first dance’ gives a truly ‘wow’ factor and wonderful photos.
Early setups are so useful and can save so much time and make your day flow so much better .
Flexibility. Will your DJ be flexible? For example, will they provide wedding breakfast music if required?
Radio microphones provided for those important speeches.
