It’s all about the location! No, I’m not talking about your venue or reception hall. The bride & groom will surely be able to handle that decision without their disc jockey. However, discussing where to have your DJ or dance floor set-up is just as important as selecting the seating chart for your guests. Imagine having your grandmother placed beside a 1200 watt speaker with music screaming from it. Also having your dance floor 20 feet from your entertainment, accessible only by jumping over your grandmother’s table. These are all areas of concern when planning the location of your disc jockey or entertainment. Let’s discuss this very important aspect of wedding planning and consider sound placement, dance floor proximity and equipment requirements. There have been many times when I have set-up for a wedding after realizing that the location of my booth was overlooked. This is an important but forgotten area in wedding planning. First of all your music entertainer will be providing sound for your guests. This includes using a sound system with speakers, and having them placed appropriately will increase your guests’ enjoyment of the music provided. A guest table that is positioned directly beside or in front of a speaker will create aggravation and discomfort due to loudness. Make sure there is sufficient space for your guests to sit and enjoy the music. Second, the proximity of your dance floor to the DJ or entertainment is crucial because ensuring your guests will have a fun experience requires them to interact or participate. Just as it is exciting to be in front of the stage at a concert, the entertainer needs that same feeling to perform and feel the energy from the crowd. The last area of concern involving equipment is more technical than any other planning consideration, so I won’t get into too much detail with this. Having a dedicated 15 amp circuit breaker to plug into is the most concerning requirement. A certain amount of power is required to provide proper sound. Sure, there are always extension cords available, however the longer the cord the more resistance there will be in the wire. And thus, the amperage that the wire can carry is reduced, causing a loss of power through resistance. With a disc jockey or entertainer using superior sound equipment, having proper amperage will ensure the equipment performs at its best. Considering sound placement, dance floor proximity and equipment requirements, will ensure your disc jockey or entertainment can provide an exciting party. Always discuss this important aspect of wedding planning with whomever you hire to entertain at your reception.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!|
