Why Are Weddings Expensive?

While we can't really speak to everything else about a wedding, the reasons why wedding DJ costs are higher than something like a birthday party is really simple - it's 5 times the work.

Written by Stylus S.E.

Most couples, when they're contacting a wedding vendor, will usually jump right to the heart of what they think the matter is.

“What's the Price?”

Uplighting - The Why & How of It

Written by Stylus S.E.

Uplighting has become a popular trend for many weddings, almost a necessity for certain venues. Just a few uplights can dramatically alter how you feel about a space, taking you from “Didn't we go to a wedding here last summer” to “OMG!” There are a lot of very pretty venues out there – but the vast majority of them benefit from uplighting – how can you tell if your wedding venue could use a little extra pop?

Abridged History of DJing

Written by Stylus S.E.

In the 9th century (about 1300 years ago) The Banu Musa brothers in Baghdad invented an automatic organ and flute player that played a lot like a player piano or music box (invented in 1796). The player piano used paper scrolls in 1876. Did that count as DJing? I would argue that they were, because they were using pre-recorded music to entertain an audience. While the techniques have definitely improved since then, the rules are still the same - make people dance!

Guide to Wedding Traditions

Written by Stylus S.E.

Many of the traditions that make up the contemporary wedding date back to before writing; others are far more recent than you might think. We owe most of our traditions to a relatively few groups including the Sumerians, Romans and British, but some come from far around the world and others from right here at home. Ever wondered where they come from and why we still do them? The truth will surprise you!

DJ Pro Tips

Written by Stylus S.E.

Picking a DJ may be one of the most important decisions you make for your wedding. They more than provide a soundtrack for your wedding – they’re in charge of handling the mood, tone, pulse, and flow of your reception. Making the wrong choice can put your guests off, cost you unnecessary time and money, and undo months of hard work.

Applause!

Swag!
