Weddings, quinceaneras, parties, and any event where you may need a DJ or entertainment require a lot of planning and preparation. We often tell our clients that wedding and event planning can be like having a part time job! We certainly recommend that you start planning as soon as possible, to ensure you get to have the wedding or event that you want to have!
Planning 12 months or at the least 9 months, in advance, is ideal for booking your DJ, photo booth and other vendors. However, in the Austin area, you may want to plan 12-18 months in advance (if possible), to pick your wedding venue. There are only so many venues in Austin, and there are nearly 1 million people living in Austin; as we all know, more and more people moving to Austin (about 125 per day), every day! A recent study showed that Travis County netted more people moving here in 2015, than the other top 10 counties, combined! So as you can imagine, planning your wedding or event and having an available venue requires planning well in advance, especially if it's a Saturday event! Most venue owners/managers have told us that there is an 18 month wait-list for a Saturday event!
We're seeing more and more people planning 18-24 months in advance, for their event. The struggle with this, for us, is having the staff who are willing to commit to being available for an event, more than 12 months in advance. Our general rule is that we only book out up to 12 months in advance. Due to the increasing demand, however, we may change it to 18 months, since we're seeing the trend of early wedding and event planning!
So overall, the earlier you plan, the better! Don't forget, we offer wedding (ceremony and reception) and event (parties, quinceaneras, etcetera) planning assistance, FREE! Don't take on this task, alone! We're here to help you plan and we also offer FREE day-of-event-coordination, too! We want our couples and clients to simply show up, the day of their event, and have fun! Leave the stress to us! :)
