So let me state the obvious: Weddings and events are expensive! If you're reading this, you probably already know this! There are many vendors you'll need for your wedding, party, or event, such as catering, decorations, cake, flowers, a DJ or band, photography, etc. Also, if you're having your wedding or event in the Austin or Central Texas area, you may already know that venues are very limited, which means not only will you have to book your event early (especially if it's a Saturday), but you'll also pay a few thousand, up to in the $20,000 range, depending on the venue you choose. Feel free to stop reading and take a deep breath/sigh. :)
With so many vendors to hire, comes more choices and decisions. Most vendors offer different packages and upgrades, to accommodate your needs. You will rarely, if ever, find a vendor who will not try to offer you an upgrade. Although we are the exception. :) We're completely transparent with our clients and we're always happy to only offer you what you need. We'll often tell you how you can save money, as well. An example is when clients contact us and ask to book us for 8 hours. We let them know that we don't charge for setup/break-down, and that most weddings are only 5-6 hours, so they will not need 8 hours (other DJs/DJ companies will happily book the 8 hours). We know, since we also have planned our own wedding in the Austin area! We know the struggles of planning, well! So now to the good stuff. Here is a great article discussing 9 upgrades that are worth the investment. We certainly agree with their choices and are happy to offer some of the upgrades that they recommend! Here's the link, from The Knot article, below. Enjoy!
