CT DJs 10 tips for a perfect outdoor wedding

joe No Comments

CT Wedding DJs J&S Entertainment is committed to providing usefull information to help you plan your perfect Connecticut wedding.  Our CT DJs share their experiences and knowledge at CTweddingDJ.com

If you’ve decided to have an outdoor wedding,
congratulations! Outdoor weddings are romantic and beautiful. However, they aren’t as easy as they may look. Outdoor weddings come with additional caveats and pitfalls, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be sure to shine on your wedding day.

Make your guests comfortable Think about what the weather
will likely be at the time of day and month of the year of your outdoor wedding. Sunny and hot? Don’t leave your guests uncomfortably melting – have your ushers give guests ice-cold bottles of water as they are seated. Consider printing your wedding program on a fan so that guests may cool themselves. Don’t forget to have plenty of sunscreen on hand as well. For a very warm location, look into renting large electric fans (don’t forget a generator) and/or a tent to shade the suns rays. If it will be cold and damp, make sure
you tell guests that so they can wear extra layers. A simple xeroxed insert will do. You might want to have lap blankets on hand, or rent portable heaters.

Have a backup plan What will you do if it rains? The ideal outdoor wedding location has an indoor location waiting just in case. Many brides and grooms opt to have their ceremony outside and reception inside. In a pinch, the tables can be scooted to the back of the room during the ceremony. A tent is another option, but only for light to moderate rain storms. A heavy rain will soak the ground underneath, leaving guests with soggy and muddy shoes. Make sure any tent you rent is sturdy so it won’t flip over, and that it has thick and weighted sides.

Plan for Wind Many outdoor weddings suffer from windy
conditions. Avoid light fabrics like chiffons and china silks in your dress and the bridesmaid dresses. Tell your hairstylist that you’ll be having an outdoor wedding so she/he can plan a style that won’t leave you looking like Cousin It! Men in the wedding party should use pomade or other styling product. Again, tell your guests in a printed insert so that they can plan accordingly. And of course, make sure your tent will stand up to gusting winds or find an indoor backup plan.

Can everybody hear? When you picture your dream wedding
at the beach, you’re probably not hearing the roaring of the waves, the rushing wind, or the local kids running and screaming around you. Look into renting a sound system with clip mikes for the bride, groom and officiate. Your CT DJ or band may be able to easily arrange this for you.  At J&S Entertainment, this is a very common practice.  We often provide a second P/A system for exactly this purpose.  In this scenario, you’ll have the option of playing all of your prelude, processional, ceremonial and recessional music through the system as well!

Decorations One of the bonuses of an outdoor wedding is the natural beauty around you, lessening your need to decorate. But you still need to do some work. Visit the site a week before your wedding to make sure the grass is mown, the ground raked, and the flowers have bloomed. If your wedding is at a public park, you may want to ask the groomsmen or friends to do this the morning of your ceremony. If it’s been an especially cold season, you may need to supplement the flowers with some potted bulbs from a florist. Other decorations you may want to consider include an arch or trellis to focus the ceremony and frame the bride and groom as they say their vows; strings of lights or lanterns in the trees; luminarias; torches; or farolitas.

Make things tasty outside Does your caterer have
experience planning an outdoor wedding menu? Make sure they’re planning things that will keep well outdoors in the heat. Avoid things like mayonnaise salads or dishes which must be served cold.

Don’t leave your guests parched Since alcohol is
dehydrating, consider serving a variety of lemonades, teas and punches. Be sure to have plenty of ice and water around as well. For a fancy cocktail, why not serve a classic mint julep or a mojito? The mint will refresh and cool your guests.

Those pesky flying things Be sure to put out citronella
candles or a bug zapper so that your guests won’t spend the whole ceremony swatting at the air.

Here comes the sun Consider timing your outdoor wedding
for sunset where your guests will see you take your vows surrounded by the warm glow of the sun. Those having a daytime outdoor wedding should orient the ceremony so that the sun will be on guests’ backs rather than in their eyes.

Permits Don’t forget to contact your city parks department or other local government to get a permit for an outdoor  wedding. Be sure to ask about rules concerning trash removal, candle or torch lighting, and pre-wedding photography.

Why Choose CT DJs from J&S Entertainment for next party?

Why Choose J&S Entertainment to DJ your wedding or party?

J&S Entertainment has been a leader among the Connecticut Disc Jockey services available.  In a sea of many, J&S stands out above the rest.

J&S has a great music playlist.

We bring tens of thousands of songs to every party. Not just songs, but big hit songs. Our library spans 7 decades, dozens of genres and is over 75,000 songs in depth.

A proven track record.

We’ve performed at thousands of Connecticut weddings, class reunions, birthdays, anniversary parties and corporate events. We’re proud of the trust we’ve earned from our clients.

State-of-the-art sound equipment.

Even the world’s greatest music would be wasted on a second-rate sound system. So we invest in the best.   We boast brand name equipment like Rane, Bose, Shure, Denon, DAS, QSC, Pioneer, JBL, ElectroVoice and more– names that professional Connecticut party DJs have come to trust for faithful sound reproduction.

We’re people people. But we’re not clowns.

A “wacky” DJ may be great for children’s parties. But adults quickly grow tired of a DJ who demands all of their attention. Most parties call for a DJ with strong master-of-ceremonies skills and the wisdom to use his own words sparingly. You are the star of your party, not your DJ.

Personal service.

We offer each client unlimited contact with us while planning the party. And you’ll have plenty of opportunity to share with your Connecticut DJ exactly how you’d like your event to proceed. By party time, your DJ will be a trusted friend, not a total stranger.

We’re small.

Imagine a company actually bragging about such a thing. But in the DJ business, being too big means losing quality control. We have four professional DJs, each with at least 20 years experience. And this is important: Our DJs are not independent contractors brokered out like some of the big guys.  Unlike the giant companies, we don’t just buy dozens of sound systems, and hire DJ’s off the street to work for gas money. Our people are professionals. They’re paid well. This is our business, not a hobby. You deserve no less. 

We hope that, after you’ve done some objective research, you’ll conclude that we offer the finest service, with complete peace of mind, at a fair price.
