DJSTOGO AT A GLANCE
What's the booking process?
A deposit of $295, made by credit card or check, guarantees your Dj and a written contract is provided. The balance may be made anytime up to your wedding date. Upon receipt of deposit you will have access to A comprehensive planning guide that includes "Brides & Grooms most unique and popular music suggestions" to help craft your music vision, event formalities and timeline. The planner will be returned no later than one month prior to your wedding date. At that time we will craft a detailed timeline to control the flow of your wedding day.
Will our Dj coordinate the timeline as Emcee/Announcer?
Yes! Event flow and good communication with guests, staff and other vendors is essential. The timeline will be made in the planning process 4 weeks prior to your date. The timeline will guide us and ensure a nice flow and keep everything on track.
Do you have any fun reception ideas or games to spice it up?
The shoe/sign game is very popular with guests. It works like this: During your reception, after you’ve enjoyed some dinner, dancing, and drinks, place two chairs back-to-back on the dance floor for the bride and groom. Remove both of your shoes, then trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each. Then, have the Dj wll ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship (i.e.. “Who will be doing most of the cooking?” "Who said 'I love you' first?"). After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think is the best answer to the question.
Generation Dance: Dj will ask all married couples to the dance floor while playing a slow ballad. Then, at 1 minute interval ask couples to leave the dance floor beginning with married 5 years, then 10, 20 etc.. The last remaining couple will be acknowledged for the longest married couple. Sometimes a bouquet is given.
The money dance, dollar or auction dance is where your guests pay to dance briefly with the bride and groom. This is very traditional in some families and can be fun. Sometimes guests are told that the money will be used for the bride and groom's honeymoon or to give them a little extra cash
Kissing Menu: instead of clanging glasses to kiss, each table has a menu. Tables choose between singing,, demonstrating a kiss to be copied by B&G, sharing a funny or sentimental story or sweet toast to get the newlyweds to kiss.
Do you have all types of music? Our family's are from different backgrounds.
Yes, we have all music types. The key to a successful event is the Dj reading the crowd and playing a diversity of music.
Will you take requests from our guests?
Yes, if you would like us to, using discretion. Guests do not typically make requests if the Dj has the dance floor packed.
Do you provide music and equipment for the wedding ceremony?
