What does the disco look like?
Unless you’re a DJ yourself, you probably haven’t even considered this question. But should you?
You’ve probably spent a lot of time and money styling your venue to fit with your wedding theme, and it’s only right that the evening (or even all day) disco setup fits in with that look and feel.
This becomes even more important when the disco is there for more than just the evening!
Do you want something loud and flashy, do you want something more minimal, or something else entirely?
I work very closely with all of my wedding customers to ensure I’m providing a setup which will fit in with their venue and any theme they may have, be that traditional, retro or rustic.
Below are just a few examples of recent wedding setups
Classic and modern white options
Still very popular with the more traditional wedding are my classic and modern white setups.
Everything is white, the speakers, the booths, the lights and even the electrical cables!
These two options are also available in black by the way.
Notice the hearts (stars are also available) projected onto the dance floor ready for the first dance.
Modern sticks or LOVE
These particular setups are probably my most used combination of equipment.
In this case, the lighting for the first dance is set to match the venue’s static ceiling lighting of light blue and pink. Notice again the hearts on the dance floor.
The equipment however is all black and virtually invisible. The overall result is that you see and hear the effects of the disco, but don’t have to see the equipment which is producing it.
Or how about a rustic styled booth if you’re celebrating in a barn or a marquee?
If needs be, I’m able to cover things like speakers and lighting poles in flower garlands and sacking to further “rusticate” the effect.
Still surprisingly popular is the Retro setup which is a genuine 1980s light-show setup (the sound is alas, now digital).
It’s a lot less controllable and a LOT heavier than the modern day equipment, and is used (by request) at around a third of the weddings I entertain at each year.
Don’t expect to have hearts on the dance floor or the lighting set to pink and Cadbury purple with this light-show though….the lighting of the day “did what it did” and flashed with four different colours in time to the music.
And finally, the “Micro” booth. This is probably my least favourite setup because space to work behind it is so limited.
However, it’s an ideal solution for smaller venues where space is at an absolute premium.
