RENTALS FOR WEDDING- Projectors, Screens and Podiums
Are you looking for professional, experienced Emcee’s/Disc Jockey’s for your Wedding? Allow me to introduce myself and my company!
All of our Emcee’s/Disc Jockeys have more than twenty years of experience. From the moment your first guest arrives, until the last dance, we will see to your every need. We will help to coordinate your wedding, take care of all the announcements, play a variety of music. To ensure your wedding runs smoothly, we will coordinate with the location, the caterer, the photographer and any other professionals.
Planning your Wedding
Planning your wedding can be a lot of work, but it should be a lot of fun. Our goal is to provide you with helpful ideas and suggestions that will reduce your work and increase your overall enjoyment. If you have any questions regarding your agreement, ceremony and reception planner, payments, etc. please call or email us weekdays during regular business hours. We are available to answer any questions regarding special music ideas, ceremony musicians, or any other wedding related services.
We believe that the planning session for your wedding is the foundation of a successful reception. It is important to schedule this meeting with your DJ 3 - 4 weeks prior to your wedding. We realize that you will have many personal obligations prior to your wedding. However, it is important that we have both the bride and the groom in attendance for our final planning session. To help you budget your time, be prepared that this meeting will last 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The Sound System & Set-Up
One of the most important factors in the success of your reception is where our DJ sound system is to be set. It is critical that the DJ system is placed in an area directly next to the dance floor, and that the DJ has a good line of sight to the entrance of the room, head table and cake table.
As your Master of Ceremonies, our Emcee’s/Disc Jockey’s need to be able to see each of these areas in order to control the timing of each. It is not a good idea to surround your dance floor on all four sides with tables. Remember, our speakers need to carry sound to the dance area. If there are tables directly between the speakers and the dance floor, the guests seated at those tables will have an uncomfortable level of sound. Please be sure to provide us with a minimum of a 6' x 10' area to set the sound system and speakers.
If you have any guests seated in an adjacent area or room, we can provide additional speakers so that all of your guests can hear the announcements and music at a comfortable level. A nominal charge will apply for this customized speaker option.
The Sequence of Events
In addition to the set-up, the order and time-line of events is a very important part of the overall success of your wedding reception. As an entertainment professional, we are experts at helping you plan the very best sequence for all the events and formalities.
While you may get ideas from others, only your Master of Ceremonies can create the perfect sequence for you - one that seamlessly flows from one event to the next, while maximizing guest enjoyment and participation. If you are planning a tentative agenda with any other wedding professionals (caterer, photographer, etc.) please call us first. We will be happy to share our expertise and experiences that will help you customize the very best party.
Unlike many other service professionals, we do not contractually add service charges or gratuities. After considering the advanced pre-planning, the level of service and quality of presentation, along with your overall enjoyment, we believe you should decide for yourself what level of gratuity if any you feel appropriate.
Food & Drink
If you would like to provide us with a meal, it is not necessary to include us in your final count with the caterer. Meals are often available for us without the additional cost being incurred by you. We will make this arrangement with the banquet staff upon our arrival. Alcoholic beverages are NEVER consumed by Mark Welch Entertainment staff. However, providing ice water and soft drinks is greatly appreciated.
"Mark, Thank you so much for making our day one to remember. We can't say enough about you. Our guests can't say enough either. All the little "extras" like meeting the wedding party with wine in hand , tape for the gift cards and Altoids. Just simply awesome!! One guest asked us who the D.J. was. My response was, "you mean the M.C.?" You are the Master of Ceremonies for sure. Everything ran smooth as silk because of you. Thank you again! We will tell all our friends, and any one who asks about Mark Welch Entertainment."
