Hire a pro and have an amazing time. Here are some facts to consider when you’re developing your budget for your wedding entertainment package.
Let’s face it: No one wants to go to a run-of-the-mill, ho-hum wedding; even more importantly, no one wants to be the bride hosting a less-than-exciting event! When you look back on your special day, you want to have spectacular memories of the most important day of your life. Here are some facts to consider when you’re developing your budget for your wedding entertainment package:
People Tend to Remember the Entertainment
Yes, everyone will ooh and ahh over your dress and flowers, but the thing that most people will remember about your special day is whether or not they had a good time. During peak wedding season, your guests may attend a half dozen weddings; if all of them except for yours have the same cookie-cutter entertainment, guess whose wedding is going to elicit smiles later, during the retelling of the events? When you trust Off the Chart Entertainment to handle your special day, you won't need to worry about people referring to your wedding entertainment as mediocre!
If you need to save money, you might be tempted to have your new husband’s college roommate’s brother DJ your wedding for a few hundred dollars. While you’ll certainly get a bargain, financially speaking, there’s a good chance you won’t end up with the wedding of your dreams. From spending time with you discussing your likes and dislikes, to choreographing your playlist, to putting together a dynamite light show, to putting your photos to music, your professional wedding entertainment company puts a lot of time and effort into planning for your special day. Simply put, a discount DJ will be able to keep CDs playing, but aside from that, it’s anyone’s guess. Don’t leave this to chance.
Your Photos and Memories Hinge on the Entertainment You Choose
Now that you’re convinced that wedding entertainment isn't the place to scrimp, you might wonder what an appropriate percentage of your budget you should allot for the package that you want. TheKnot.com suggests planning to set aside 10 percent of your budget for your wedding DJ; the amount that you spend depends on your overall budget, as well as the specific package that you want. Contact the professionals at Off the Chart Entertainment to discuss your needs and desires, and they can give you a personalized quote.
Remember, you want your guests to be raving about your wedding for years to come: Make that happen by getting the best entertainment package you can!
