With 2015 coming to a close, next week, we decided to write another blog about some trends we're noticing for 2016 weddings and events, in the Austin and central Texas area. We've noticed that the traditional Saturday wedding is changing, quickly! In the Austin area, the majority of weddings occur on Saturdays, during "wedding season," which is usually from mid-February, until late October. We've noticed that many couples are choosing to hold their weddings on days other than Saturday. We've done numerous weddings, Quinceaneras, parties, and events, on Fridays and Sundays, this year. This was not the case in 2014, as our busiest days were Saturdays. This was the case for 2015 and is still the case for events we've already booked for 2016!
Another trend we've noticed from 2015 is that Fall weddings are becoming very popular. This past Fall, we were busier than we've even been! We are already booking 2016 Fall weddings and events, so this should definitely continue. One thing that we've also noticed is that Thursdays, are becoming very popular wedding days. We had no Thursday weddings in the previous years, but for 2016, we've already booked several! We were surprised and certainly double-checked with our customers, to ensure that their wedding or event is on a Thursday. With Austin, Texas venues being so booked for weddings and events on weekends, this is great for their business and even better for customers, since they may be able to receive a discounted rate for an "off night."
The last trend we've noticed for 2015, which is certainly continuing into 2016, is the photo booth. More and more of our customers are wanting to book both a DJ & photo booth, versus only a DJ. Luckily, we've been able to keep up with the demand, except for major events, such as New Years Eve, where we've already turned down bookings for a DJ and photo booth, since we're all out of DJs & photo booths! This is certainly a great problem to have, and we want to say "THANK YOU," Austin, for choosing us to be a part of your special moments! It's been a great 2015 and we're looking forward to serving you in 2016!
