Tips from Kramer Events
As you are putting together your wedding team, here are some things to keep in mind.
Each DJ is unique. Make sure you select one that fits your style. Do you want someone that is quiet on the mic, but an incredible club style mixer? Or is your focus a polished MC who will be a prominent leader for the evening? Maybe it’s someone tastefully humorous that gets your guests to laugh and breaks the ice. How interactive would you like them? You can usually get a sense of their style by reading their bio or listening to a sample of their mixes on their website. Also, read reviews and look for the things that are specifically different than the rest. That will show their style.
If you’re on the fence about getting one, they are awesome. It’s a 3 in 1.
Uplighting can change the entire feel of your room and creates a great background. But be careful, uplighting alone can make the foreground details disappear such as your centerpieces, table decor, and cake. Adding pin spots or overhead lighting to these areas will instead focus your guests’ attention right to these areas making them stand out and be the first thing you see when you walk into the room. If you’ve invested in an awesome cake or centerpieces make sure people can actually see them. Ask your lighting company to show you before and after pictures to really see the difference.
If you want to enjoy your own wedding and be able to live in the moment, hire a professional wedding coordinator or planner. You don’t want to spend your entire wedding making decisions or dealing with issues. Spend it instead with the friends and family you invited. Use a planner if you want someone to hold your hand all the way through the planning experience. Use a month of coordinator if you’ve done all the planning and just need someone to manage things the day of the wedding. Be cautious of using a day of coordinator. It takes longer than a day to prep and fully handoff your wedding to a professional.
Most importantly, live in the moment and enjoy your wedding!
