DJ Luna Tips - Uplighting For Your Wedding

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Uplighting is a definite "must have" for creating that perfect atmosphere at your Wedding. It really it adds more “pizazz” than any other decoration at your reception.

Color
You can start the evening with a color scheme to compliment your decoration and the room. Nice bright colors all around the room will really impact the mood of your guests. The lights can be kept at a static color or be made to transition slowly from one color to another. Later when the dancing starts, the lights in the room can be made to "dance" along with the beat of the music by changing colors and turning on and off.

How many lights?
The number of fixtures depends on the size of the room. For a room that will hold between 150 - 200 guests I find that 20 fixtures will do the trick. It's better to have a few extra than to come up short and leave one area of the room uneven... it will really show!

Where do they go?
Lights are usually placed 3 to 5 feet apart, against the wall or in front of columns in a room. Try and keep chairs and tables at least 3ft away from the walls and fixtures so that you get the most light out of them.

Are they safe?
Modern fixtures are LED which are "safer" to the touch because they don't get hot. They are still an electrical appliance so care must be taken to secure all wires and to keep kids, or anyone, from touching them.

How much?
Pricing for an uplighting package for your wedding can cost between $25 - $35 per fixture.

Where to Place the DJ at Your Wedding Reception?

Friday, June 01, 2012

By now you should have read it on enough websites that the entertainment at a reception is the most important thing. Having said that, consult with your DJ for the best spot for them to set up at your event. They know their equipment and capabilities better than anyone else and they are trying to give you the best possible result for your event, so please listen to them.

Here are a few tips to remember:

  1. Keep the DJ close to the dance floor
    Makes it easier for the DJ to interact with the guests and keep a good vibe flowing with the crowd.

  2. Avoid putting tables in front of the DJ, specially in front of speakers
    The people at these tables will be blasted with all the loud music and will probably leave.

  3. Give your wedding DJ plenty of room
    Have an idea or ask to see pictures of the DJ's setup so you know how much room they will need. Some times wedding venues like to set up a room in a way that works best for them and their needs. Remember this is your event, ask them to work with you.

  4. Time to setup and take-down
    Club houses are particularly terrible at giving you 30 minutes to clean up at the end of the night. This will be almost impossible for your wedding DJ. Find out how much time the DJ needs to get all their stuff and allow time for it with the venue.
