What to Expect The Day of Your Wedding
What To Expect Weeks Before Your Wedding
Clients are the reason we are in business at DJ's To Go so we have put together a quick glance into the behind the scenes and event preparation. Please read through it and make any modifications you feel necessary. We want you to know that your event is as important to us as each event we host.
One of our company sound technicians will arrive to begin setting your event early, the day of. He will arrive in our company van. He normally will arrive between 2-3 hours early depending on circumstances. The sound tech will be a member of DJ's To Go and a direct employee of our company. He will be in casual attire however it will not be untactful. The tech will unload all of the equipment required for the client's event. The tech will lay a series of sound cables to place each of our professional quality speakers where they encompass the room with sound. Our technician will perform an audio quality inspection to ensure the digital purity of the music. The tech will ensure in some close spaces with a digital sound meter the sound is not to loud across the sound field. The next step in preparation for your big day is to ensure the professional wireless microphones are refreshed with new batteries and a microphone check will be performed on each individual microphone requested by the client. Depending on the clients choice a series of mobile professional lights will be fixed and positioned (if requested by the client). The final few steps will be done only if necessary and will include a fast tidy up of the DJ area, professionally gaffe taping of cables and arrangement of any final requests.
Your DJ will arrive normally at the time of the technician's sound inspection so the volume can be adjusted according to his vocal volume. The DJ and sound tech
will run a series of tests on all equipment and lighting at this time. The music will normally begin at this time also. At this time there is normally 30-45 minutes until the event start time.
The DJ will at this time normally change into professional attire for the event and begin preparing for the evenings event. A final inspection of the wedding planning packet and a few silent rehearsals of any announcement will occur 15-20 min before start time.
When guests begin to arrive the music will greet them. The DJ will welcome the guests to the event and begin the event formally. This could be in the form of
inviting the guests to the bar for a cocktail, informing them of specific seating arrangements, making general announcements and will conclude with a thank you
from the bride and groom. This will allow space for the photographer to shoot any remaining wedding photos.
When the bride and groom arrive the DJ will excuse himself to meet with the wedding planner or bride and groom to ensure no changes have been made to the
wedding packet and all of the introductions are in order. The introductions will end with the bride and groom and the festivities will begin. The DJ will announce
throughout the evening any special announcements requested by the bride and groom. Song requests will be honored but only in a tactful manner as deemed
appropriate for the time and event.
Through the evening the DJ will take the bride and groom as well as their guests on a custom constructed playlist created from the all digital song database
licensed by DJ's To Go. The evening will begin in most cases at a slower tempo and build into the desired intensity of the bride and groom. Depending on the
desires of the client announcements will be made for cake cutting, toasts, garter toss, bouquet toss, first dance, formal family dances and any other requested
activity of the evening. As the evening comes to a close your DJ will announce again gratitude from the client and announce the departure if requested by the client.
