Tips For Planning The Perfect Party

  1. Hire a DJ from Bunn DJ Company!
  2. For a wedding, keep in mind where the bride and groom will be; that’s where the guests will be and congregate.
  3. Don’t micromanage the timeline. We need some details but let us use our experience when it comes to day-of. We do need the order of events but not necessarily the exact time for each.
  4. If there are older guests, try not to sit them close or right in front of the speaker(s).
  5. Don’t put the DJ in an obscure location or corner. The DJ needs to be easily visible and near the dance floor so they can see it to get a feel for the crowd.
  6. If you have lighting, keep in mind that darker is better for the dance floor area. Use dimmers for chandeliers, cafe lighting, etc.
  7. If you have a bar at the event, please put it in the main room; same for a dessert table. You want to keep people in the main room with all of the action.
  8. If you are having a photo booth, have it near the dance floor or bar, not outside in a different room if possible.
  9. When picking your songs for your event, take into account the guests and what you think they will like to hear.
  10. A party should end when it shouldn’t end, not when it has to. We want to leave the guests
    wanting more.
  11. If you have to cut corners on your budget, don’t skimp on your entertainment; it can make or break your event.
  12. If there are a lot of children at the event, have something for them to do, like: coloring books, watch a movie, games, babysitter, etc.
  13. When picking your music, you don’t have to overdo it. Pick 20 or so songs you like and a few you don’t and let us fill in from there.
  14. If you are picking songs for your first dance and parents’ dances, please let the DJ know if there is a different version than the popular one you are dancing to.
