Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding

#1

Keep in mind your guests are going to be where the bride and groom are. If you're on the dance floor, the guests will be too!

#2

Don't micromanage the timeline. We do need the order of events but not necessarily the exact time for each.

#3

If there are older guests, try not to sit them close or right in front of the speaker(s). They will be more comfortable if they are seated further away.

#4

Don't put the DJ in an obscure location; the DJ needs to be easily visible and near the dance floor so they can see it to get a feel for the crowd.

#5

If you have dance floor lighting, keep in mind that darker is better. Use dimmers for chandeliers, cafe lighting, etc.

#6

If you have a bar or photo booth, please make sure it's where the DJ is. You want to keep people near the dance floor at all times.

#7

When selecting your songs for your event, take into account not only your taste, but the guests' as well.

#8

When selecting your music, you don't have to overdo it. Pick 20 or so songs you like and a few you don't and let us fill in from there.

#9

If you have to cut corners on your budget, don't skimp on your entertainment - it can make or break your event!

Todd and team were absolutely amazing! Really can't say enough about our experience. From the initial meeting to our wedding, things were perfect. Todd made sure everything was taken care of so we wouldn't have to worry. He gets to know his customers and this goes a long way. Music selections were great. He really got people moving and dancing. The Magic Mirror was a huge hit at our wedding. Our guests couldn't say enough about Todd. You won't be disappointed having Todd and team DJ your big day!

"We used Jock in the Box for our wedding on 9/22/18 at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT and it was hands down one of the best decisions we could have made. Todd was incredibly friendly, attentive, and understanding in the lead up to the wedding. He basically doubles as a wedding planner that helps you get your event in order. We carefully mapped out the key things we were looking to do and the timing around them and he turned something that could be very stressful into an extreme sense of comfort for us. In addition to using his premium sound package, we went with his multi-color uplighting, which added great ambiance to the room and synced up wonderfully with the music. They were especially fun as the dancing kicked into high gear in the later portions of the evening. Todd was able to listen to our musical interests and take the vibe we were interested in having at the wedding and translate it to the event in an incredible way. He is not a "push play DJ". He will go above and beyond to create an experience unique to your event. We got live mixes and mashups of different songs, great segues, and just a general sense of what was needed to keep the room moving all night. He even was kind enough to include a number of silly audio samples from YouTube clips we wanted through the evening, which added some humor and a personal touch. All in all, I couldn't recommend Jock in the Box enough. They were great in the planning phase and even better on the day of the wedding. On time, professional, and an overall excellent handle on how music can take a party to the next level. 5 stars all the way!"

"Todd and his crew were beyond amazing. From the second I met Todd I knew he was going to seal the deal provide my husband and I, as well as our wedding guests the wedding of a lifetime. He was thorough and energetic. He was understanding and extremely helpful, not to mention he gets a wonderful grasp on the dancing audience and plays the right tunes at the right time! Todd really listens to what the bride and groom want and need and does everything he can to make the event go smoothly. All of the staff that attended the wedding with him were also amazing. They were so kind and fun! Furthermore, Todd helped me make my father daughter dance a one of a kind, memorable moment by taking my voice recording of a letter I wrote to my daddy and up it into the song. I don't even have words for the amazing-ness of it! On top of that he and my photographer (Russell's Photography) worked hand in hand to put together a live edit featuring actual wedding day photos, speeches and a song to top off the night! I honestly don't have enough amazing things to say about Jock in the Box Entertainment! They really made our NYE Gatsby Style wedding a dream come true!"
