Planning a wedding is perhaps one of the most stressful things a person can do!  Believe me... I understand all too well.  I watched my wife plan, plan, and then plan some more for 18 months as we prepared to wed in 2012 - and while I offered a helping hand whenever and wherever I could, she had a vision - and no one knew how to bring that vision to life better than her.  This was not only the story of my own personal experience, but also what I find to be very typical in the start-to-finish wedding planning process.  As your DJ, I'd like to offer as much help to you as I can - without getting in your way, of course.  When you book me to DJ your wedding, here's what you can expect:

  • Upon booking me and confirming your reservation, right off the bat I'll provide you with a sample reception itinerary.  This is a list of special dances, events, and activities that I typically come across when DJing a wedding reception.  The cutting of the cake... the toasts... the first dance... the dollar dance... all of those special dances like the "longest married" dance... they all have a place in the reception, but where do you schedule them?!  Many brides will have their own plan and their own agenda, and will ask that I follow along with their timeline step by step - and that's TOTALLY fine.  BUT, as an added service, I will always provide you with a sample reception itinerary that you can use verbatim, use bits and pieces of but reorganized to better fit your preferences, or throw away completely.  Regardless, it will be there for you to use in whatever capacity you choose.  If you'd rather I help you with a customized reception schedule, I'm happy to grab you a cup of coffee and help you along the way as well.  Remember, there are no right or wrong ways to schedule your day.  It's YOUR day, after all!  Make it what you want it to be!
  • As you get closer to the ceremony, the topic of song selection will come up.  If you're at a loss, I'm happy to provide you free access to my database of song ideas.  Over the years, I've compiled a giant list of great songs to use as your processional, bridal march, recessional, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and ideas for a few other special dances you might decide to include in your ceremony.  I have ideas for all genres - from traditional to country, and from modern to - yes, even rock.  The entire database is a click away for all of my clients.  All you have to do is ask!
  • At your wedding, there are a few different variables that will define how I set up for your event.  In some cases, the ceremony and reception are held in the same dance hall or community room - and for those, one large sound setup in one centralized location will accommodate the day perfectly.  In other cases, you might hold your ceremony at the same location as your reception, but maybe the ceremony is to be held outside and then the reception inside or vice versa.  I have enough sound equipment to provide up to three sound systems for your event.  The first and second setup are included with your standard booking and performance fee.  If you happen to need a THIRD setup, I can provide that for a small up-charge.  Having the ability to provide you with more than one setup creates for a seamless transition from the ceremony to the reception.  At many venues (take The Risk Barn in Jerome, for example), as soon as the ceremony wraps up, guests will migrate inside where it's cooler and will mingle while they await you, your spouse and wedding party as you finish up "just married" photos.  With two setups in place, I can continue playing some light background music for your guests who are still outside while also providing music and announcements for your guests who have already moved inside.  When it's convenient and appropriate, I will tear down the smaller system that has been set up outside - but there is never an urgency to do so, and if it remains set up outside for the entire duration of the reception, then I'll simply tear it down at the end of the night (assuming inclement weather isn't in the forecast).
  • There are a few different microphone configurations you might hope for during your ceremony and reception.  Here's what I can offer.  A lapel microphone for your officiant (one that either clips to his/her jacket/dress or one that he/she wears like a pair of glasses - much like the microphones you see artists use in pop concerts and a handheld microphone on a stand which will sit to the side of the altar until you and your spouse are ready to give your vows.  Often times, the bride and groom do not want a microphone stand at the altar with them - and in those situations, I'll just have a conversation with the officiant ahead of time so that he/she can stash it somewhere inconspicuous but easily accessible so that when it's time for vows, the microphone is just an arm's length away.  In some situations, the officiant will prefer a handheld microphone on a mic stand instead of a lapel mic.  I can provide him/her with that as well, in addition to the handheld mic I've provided for your vows.
  • I can provide a wireless microphone for your best man, maid of honor, father of the bride and whoever else wishes to give toasts during the reception.  Before it's time for toasts,  I will bring a fully charged wireless handheld microphone to your table and quickly instruct those giving toasts how to use the mic and how to turn it on and off.  Really, it's just a switch - but it's always better to be over-prepared than to have your guests fighting with a microphone instead of spending all of their energy on you and your new spouse!
  • My attire!  First, I know this is an important day for you, and I know you want everybody to look nice.  While it's a little hard for me to go full suit-and-tie as I'll spend an hour or two BEFORE your wedding lugging around sound gear, usually in the hot sun, I promise to look presentable and a few steps above "casual" when it's ceremony tie.  Typically, a suit jacket or blazer, a collared shirt, a tie, jeans and dress shoes.  I'll be completely honest and say that during the hottest months out of the year, I will dress appropriately outside - but I will also be of no use to anyone if I'm a sweaty and dripping mess.  So, I'll dress down in situations like that - but I won't look like a slob.  Like I said, I know this is an important day for you, and I know you want everybody to look nice.  I will.  I promise.
  • Finally, payment.  Once you've decided to book Idaho Party DJ, I'll write an agreement that outlines my commitments to you and your financial commitments to me - and depending on how many hours you need me, how far the wedding is from Twin Falls (everywhere within a 50 mile radius is covered in the standard booking fee... for anything further, I'll include a small mileage surcharge) and how many sound system setups you'll need (remember, the first two are included in your standard booking fee - a third will cost you a little more), the agreement will list the full price for your booking.  To reserve the date, I require a 50% deposit which is applied to the total amount due, and payable within 7 days of booking.  The other half will be due any time before the wedding - or even upon my arrival on your wedding day.  I accept cash, check, credit card, or any combination of the three.  Additionally, if you're interested in financing your purchase I accept Paypal Credit - who will finance you interest free for six months on approved credit.  It should be noted that I am not able to negotiate financing offers with Paypal, and Paypal is exclusively responsible for approving (or denying) credit.  If you elect to use Paypal Credit, your account will be with Paypal - and after you've paid off your Idaho Party DJ balance, your Paypal Credit account can be used as a revolving month-to-month line of credit and can be used wherever Paypal is accepted.

So... are you ready to book?  Do you have a few more questions?  Let's talk!  Call or text me at (208) 280-8430, or simply fill out the form to the right and click submit.  I'm quick to reply, and in most cases we'll be chatting within an hour or two of your submission.
