This weekend, we had a great time providing a DJ for this fun, school carnival and a DJ and photo booth for a block party for an apartment complex in San Marcos, TX!
Menchaca Elementary School Carnival
The school had a great turnout for this event! We were set up near the dunking booth, which was pretty popular, since students could dunk the principal and assistant principal! We had a great time and are glad everyone came out for this fun event!
Elevation Apartments Block Party, With Austin's Best DJs & Photo Booths- San Marcos, TX
We had a great time providing a DJ and photo booth for this fun, block party, at Elevation on Post Apartments, in San Marcos, Texas! Lots of people came out, took some pictures, enjoyed the music and played some games, too! We look forward to the next event!
Overall, we had a blast proving our services for these events. We have many more school dances and events, and apartment block parties and events, coming up this spring and summer. We're excited!
- Austin's Best DJs and Photo Booths
If you're having a wedding, party, quinceanera or event, this spring or summer in the Austin and Central Texas area, most likely, it'll be an indoor/outdoor wedding or event. Take advantage of the great central Texas weather and add some outdoor games and entertainment! Gone are the days of just hiring a DJ to provide entertainment for the entire event. Yes, a DJ is certainly great entertainment for the party, but people are now wanting a variety of entertainment, for those guests who may not want to dance.
Many of our clients are adding more entertainment for their guests. Our most popular addition to add entertainment is our photo booth, which is always a huge success! People LOVE taking pictures at the photo booth, with props, and getting a copy of the picture to take home. If you have lots of guests, add a photo booth and keep them entertained with more than just music! Additionally, customers are always asking, "what else can we do to make sure our guests have a great time?" A great DJ is first, of course, then a fun photo booth, certainly adds great entertainment, but for indoor/outdoor events, try adding games!
We now have plenty of outdoor/lawn games and "giant" games, too! These games are great for cocktail hour, or even during the reception, for guests that get tired of dancing or want something different. The giant games are always a huge hit, too! Make your party different and add some games for your guests. They'll have a blast and tell everyone how much fun they had at your wedding or party!

Wedding Sparkler Send-Off
When it comes to send-offs, by far, the most popular send-off for the weddings we do in the Austin and Central Texas area is the sparkler send-off. It looks GREAT in photos and is easy to do! You simply need to buy sparklers, bring a way to light them, and a bucket with water! Buying sparklers isn't too hard, either. There are plenty of websites that have them for sale. The prices can really vary, depending on the seller and on the size you need. We recommend 36 inch sparklers, since they last about 3-4 minutes, each. 20 inch sparklers are okay, but they only last 1-2 minutes. You'll need longer time, since you have to light everyone's sparkler, before the couple walks through!
The site we use to purchase our sparklers, is "Wedding Day Sparklers. They have the best prices and great products. Find your sparklers, today, by visiting wedding day sparklers.
Wedding Bubble Send-Off
Bubble send-offs also look great for pictures! Keep in mind, however, that the lighting has to be bright, so the bubbles show up well in the photos. If you want to do a bubble send-off, try scheduling a "mock send-off" early. You can have all your guests line up, early in the evening (just before sunset photos is a great time) and take send-off photos! They'll look great and all your guests will be in the photo. Then, you can go right back inside and party! :)
Neon Glow Sticks Send-Off
If you don't like the idea of actual fire or if the venue does not allow sparklers, glow sticks are a great alternative! They look great in pictures, too! These can work in day or night settings and you simply need to have your guests grab one on their way out. No time wasted, waiting for everyone to light their sparklers. Keep in mind many of your guests may be "tipsy" so lighting sparklers can often take longer than it should! :)
Other more environmentally friendly send offs are great too! Bird seed send-offs, which have to be done in brighter settings, unless the photographer has the appropriate lighting, which they should. Another alternative is leaves! In the fall, the various leave colors look amazing in photos!
These are the most popular send-off ideas that we commonly see in the Austin and central Texas area. There are plenty more ideas, of course. Thanks for reading!
