Bridal dress shopping just got better.

Bridal Dress shop Best for Bride reserves an area in their Etobicoke shop where other wedding vendors attend to meet brides as they shop for their bridal dress and bridesmaids’ dresses. Perpetual Rhythms is there Sundays from 11-5 pm, so come meet the owner, see the bridal and bridesmaids gowns and meet the great staff at Best For Bride.

Your Bridal Dress can often take 4-6 months to arrive, and most DJs get booked 8-4 months before the wedding, so we think our relationship with Best for Bride is a perfect marriage !!! They help us and we help their clients. Win Win Win.

By booking your DJ early, you get the best choices and best results. Same for your bridal dress. You want that perfect style, fit and feeling.

Avoid Vendor Conflicts – Does Your DJ help your Photographer take better photos?

Avoid Vendor Conflicts

If your DJ works WITH your photographer, you get better photos.

Let’s face it. Everyone you hire for your wedding wants to do their best work for you. Your photographer wants to take great photos and your videographer wants a perfectly flowing coverage of your day. Your DJ wants a great party. Sometimes, they get in each other’s way, and some one loses – You! Avoid Vendor Conflicts. Why?

Take the First Dance, for example. The DJ has his lights trained on the dance floor. The music begins and the bride and groom step onto the floor. The photographer/videographer is capturing the moments. Upon review, you notice that the DJ’s light has cast its beam onto your dress, totally covering it in coloured spots or a white streak, or the monogram in the middle of the dance floor goes up one side and down the other as you dance, blocking the original path of the beam. Now, the photographers’ perfect shot is ruined. Video may be a bit more forgiving, but photography is a moment in time, and once it’s ruined, they can’t fix it. Same happens during the Father/Bride and Groom/Mom dances. Photoshop aside, it could have been better. How? Avoid Vendor Conflicts in the first place.

We use DMX to control their lights, which allows us to aim, change colour, change intensity and even turn them OFF from our DJ booth at key times to allow the photographer/videographer to get those perfect shots. We make a point of sharing our event schedule with them at the beginning of and all through the reception, and ask them how we can help them get better shots, even if it means turning off our special effect lighting as just the right moment. We understand that a few seconds or even minutes of “Lights Out” to enable full control camera settings gives you wonderful memories, not the memory of a tender moment ruined by a smear of white light or coloured dots!

We recommend when considering your DJ, that you make sure they can explain in great detail how they operate and control their lights, and if they do not use DMX to control every function of the light, then you have the wrong DJ. Don’t blame your photographer or videographer for bad pictures, if the DJ’s lights caused the problem.

We program our lights at the venue, on the day, based on the actual floor plan. We  can also reprogram on the fly and even just turn them off, what ever it takes to help the photographer/videographer get the best shots they can for YOU.

The DJ creates the moment, and the photographer/videographer create the memory. Make it a great one by selecting vendors who can work together for your best results. When you ask better questions, you get better answers.
