How to Make Your Dream Wedding a Reality
Your wedding day is a day that will change your life forever—shouldn’t it be worth talking about forever? Such a special celebration certainly deserves special attention. We understand the stress that comes with planning your dream wedding, and we have put together this brief guide, to help make your wedding unforgettable for both you and your guests.
“Location, location, location.” It has repeated time and time again in the real estate world, but it holds extremely true in regards to your wedding. You do not need to book a luxurious (and expensive) 5-star resort or hold your ceremony on top of the Eiffel Tower for your wedding to be exciting and memorable. It is a celebration of you and your new partner that is shared with many loved ones, so the location should be one that is a good match with your personality, taste, and guest list. We have seen weddings hosted anywhere from barns to beaches, and everywhere in between. Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. Your location should be one that makes both you and your partner happy—one that you will love looking back on together for years and years to come.
We have all been to a beautiful wedding before, and we all know that the first thing on our mind (after how happy we are for the newlyweds, of course) is, “when can I dig into the incredible meal I was promised?” Remember that feeling when planning your own wedding. While a thousand Value Tacos from Del Taco would definitely be memorable, it is probably not the most enjoyable choice you can make. On the other hand, you most certainly do not want to serve up food that’s extremely underwhelming. Finding food options that both satisfy your guest’s appetites, as well as their need for conversational icebreakers is a decision that should be made along the same guidelines as your location. Unless you or someone in your family is a true master chef, we highly recommend that you pick out an experienced caterer that fits your taste and stays as on-theme as possible with everything—from the invitations, to the location, to the entertainment selection.
One of the most memorable parts of weddings are the speeches. The best man or the maid of honor may take a trip down memory lane with stories from the good-old-days, or the parents of the bride and groom may (most likely will) elicit quite a few “aww”s out of the guests. And it may take getting a few drinks in everyone’s systems, but at some point in the night, the entire celebration will shift to the dance floor. It would be extremely unfortunate to be stuck with audio equipment that can’t quite get the job done. Your audio needs will vary depending on the number of guests, the layout/size of the venue, and the forms of entertainment (DJ’s, bands, speeches, etc.). In addition to audio, a visual aspect is often a beautiful touch to weddings. With a projector (and screen), you will be able to have a slideshow of old photos playing throughout the night, or even a video montage if that is more your style. Video dedications and congratulations from relatives are a nice touch that we have seen as well. Get creative with it, though. You can use our projectors and screens to play a montage of your favorite music videos, a big sports game if your favorite team is playing, or even a stimulating visualizer to accompany the music and keep the vibes going on the dance floor.
Without the proper knowledge and experience, renting the appropriate audio and visual equipment can be quite the task and one that you cannot afford to get wrong. Channel Audio understands the importance of this special day, and we want to make your audio and visual rentals the easiest part of your wedding planning. With just a few pieces of information about your event, our technicians will be able to let you know exactly what you need for delivery, installation, and breakdown included. We can even provide an on-site technician upon request for troubleshooting. We would love the honor of helping your special night be as perfect as you deserve it to be!
