This past Sunday, we had a great time providing our DJ services for a wedding ceremony and reception, at Stonehouse Villa, in Driftwood, Texas. The weather was absolutely amazing for this outdoor event! The minister from "Tie the Knot" was great! He was super energetic and quite funny! We've never seen a ceremony, quite like this one. He also did a special tying of the knot, ceremony, which was different. This is where the phrase "tie the knot" came about, since ceremonies used to include this! The Beer Burros are always great to see, too! Overall, everyone had a great time dancing the night away at this fun, Sunday wedding!

If you're planning your wedding in our area (Austin & Central Texas), you already know that it's expensive to get married! You have to pay for the DJ, photo booth, venue, catering, flowers, dresses, decor, and so much more! However, here's some insight on the average costs of weddings in other areas throughout the U.S.
Though there are ways to save money on things for your wedding, it's still quite expensive. Here are a few pictures from our friends at The Knot. You'll see that in Texas, the prices are very different! In Austin and central Texas, the prices are closer to the Houston prices. Where is the cheapest place to get married? Montana, with the average cost being about $20,794. The most expensive place to get married is no surprise... New York City, costing couples an average of $78,464! Luckily, Austin and central Texas are close to Montana's price! :) Check out the pictures and prices, below.
Here is more interesting information, below, about weddings in the United States. In the Austin and central Texas area, we definitely agree that October is by far the busiest month for weddings, since the weather is always pretty nice for outdoor events! These numbers and statistics coincide with what we see, monthly. We do an average of 250 events per year and most of our weddings have similar numbers.
Prom season is approaching, this Spring, so it's critical that you book your DJ, photo booth, venue, and anything else you may need for your school prom! We've already booked numerous proms, so it's best to book as soon as possible. We are nearly booked up for May, with proms, but we do have a few spots left for March and April.
Ask your potential DJ or photo booth company about pricing, experience, what's included in their packages, and don't forget about background checks! Companies who work at school events should always have pre-screened employees. Many school districts require us to submit a background check form, annually, in order for us to work in their schools. If you're potential DJ or photo booth company is not willing to do this, perhaps you should find another company.
In order to ensure you get a great DJ and photo booth, start doing your research, now! Book by mid to late February, to be sure you'll have be able to book someone who will do a great job (even if it's not us). Waiting til after February will leave you stuck and either booking someone way overpriced, or booking someone cheap, and inexperienced. So start looking, today!
