EVENING WEDDING RECEPTION – PLANNING YOUR ENTERTAINMENT
Our experts have compiled this handy check list, to make planning your evening entertainment that little bit easier.
On your wedding day, after you’ve said your vows, enjoyed a delicious banquet and listened to some heart-warming speeches, it will be time for an evening celebration to remember. There are plenty of exciting decisions to make, but the pressure to create the “best day of your life” and wanting to deliver an unforgettable night for your guests too, can be a little daunting. At Harper Weddings, however, we know that to deliver a fantastic wedding celebration, from day to night, is all down to careful and considered planning. So, to ensure your planning goes smoothly, we’ve created the following list of questions that you might want to think about during the run up to your big day in order to achieve great evening entertainment for your wedding guests.
Whether you want a band or a DJ to create a perfect party atmosphere, be sure you know the answers to all the following questions before committing to anything:
• Does your wedding venue have any regulations in regards to bands and DJs? They may only allow their own in-house suppliers, or have a limit on how big they allow a band to be. Fnd this out before you start your search.
• Found a great band? Now it’s time to check if they have PAT certificates and PLI insurance. Most venues will require your band or DJ to have these, so make sure they can provide them.
• Does your wedding venue have any noise limitations? Make sure you know the situation and discuss it with your chosen entertainers before committing to anything. Does the venue have a noise limiter, and if so, what is it set to? Does your venue require bands to plug into their sound system and will your band do so? Are your chosen band happy to use electronic drums or hot rods if required?
• If you want the ultimate disco, ask your chosen DJ if they bring their own disco lights. If not, find out if your venue can provide some and how much these will cost.
