How to have a killer wedding celebration:
Are you in the middle of planning your wedding for 2017 or the following year? If so, you’re going to want to read on. I’m sure you probably have a coffee table full of wedding magazines and pinterest is your first icon in your smartphone but trust me when I tell you this. Those media outlets only cover the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the myriad of possibilities for your special day.
Mason jars, floral arrangements, and arbors are just a tiny fraction of what makes a wedding, a wedding. Everyone has their own idea of what the perfect day looks like. For some, it’s a laid back country themed gathering of friends and family. To others, it might be a star studded red carpet event. Either way, what ever your style is, there’s something for everyone out there.
But how do you have the killer celebration that you’ve always wanted for your wedding? A reception after all is the time for friends and family to cut loose and enjoy a moment with their favorite bride. You. Let’s crank it up a notch and turn your wedding from status quo to EXTRAORDINARY!
The DJ- Your DJ is responsible for more than just dancing. They are there to help coordinate your wedding along with the banquet manager or maitre’d. They’re also involved in making sure that the photos of those tender moments get captured by keeping all of your vendors informed. If you’re going to spend on average $6,000 or more on gorgeous photos, you might as well invest in a quality entertainer to give that wedding photographer something to shoot! Nothing says, “Amazing wedding” quite like a room full of smiling faces and a packed dance floor.
Light it up!- Lighting is one of the most under considered amenities when it comes to weddings. While many venues have gone ahead and provided uplighting for you, it’s purpose is simply to enhance the architecture of the room you’re having your reception in. Also, with uplighting and cooler colors in particular, the interior of the room tends to get lost. What does this mean? A pitch black dancefloor and centerpieces that can’t be seen after sun down.
Having an intelligent lighting package added to your wedding makes a tremendous difference. The lights are computer programmed and able to add a dash of color and texture to the space as well as turn the dance floor into an exciting environment conducive to dancing.
Pinspotting is a MUST HAVE for uplit rooms. Each table gets it’s own light and brightens up the room even when dimly lit with the walls being uplit.
Photo booths– If you’ve been to a wedding in the last 8 years, you’ve probably popped into the photo booth. Photo booths used to be a unique add on for weddings but they have become a staple. More and more, couples are realizing the benefits of using a photo booth at their wedding. For one, it’s something entertaining for all ages. Guests young and mature can enjoy a quick smooch in the booth or become their favorite action hero. And with social media being a part of daily lives, having the ability to share photos and selfies with friends is an added bonus. It also helps keep the smartphones in pockets and allows guests to truly be in the moment and enjoy your special day.
But what if it’s out of your budget? It’s all a matter of priority. Having the killer wedding celebration of the century is more affordable than you think. It just takes a little imagination..
