Weddings

For a Full Effect Wedding, the Ceremony consists of a speaker for the music, one wireless lapel mic for the Officiant and one for the groom, if there is a special reading a mic stand with a wired mic and music stand are available.

After the ceremony, the DJ to announce cocktail hour, a medley of music can be played for the cocktail hour of your choice or just leave it up to the DJ. After the cocktail hour the DJ to announce all guests to be seated and prepare for the Grand Entry which the DJ will announce, typically 2 songs for the Grand Entry are chosen.

After the Grand Entry guests will remain seated, a Toast may be given before/during dinner, sometimes a prayer may be done before dinner, a wireless mic will be available anywhere in the building. After dinner are typically the Special Dances including the 1st Dance, Father/Daughter, and Mother/Son Dances. The F/D & M/S can be combined as one as well.

Normally after the Special Dances it is great to dance for 30 minutes, then we can go into the Bouquet Toss where the DJ will announce all the singles ladies to the dance floor, the DJ will play a top song or play what is popular on the radio to fill the dance floor then it is easy to ask single ladies to remain on the dance floor. After the Bouquet Toss the DJ announce the single men to the dance floor, a chair will be placed in the center of the dance floor for the bride to be seated, then DJ will play song for the Garter Removal, after the removal is the Garter Toss, the DJ can countdown 3,2,1, toss... etc, typically there are 2 songs for the garter removal and toss.

After can be the Cake Cutting and sometimes a Money Dance, depending on the client's wishes. A secret that has been learned is as soon as you cut the cake most guests will leave the reception and go home, so to ensure a successful dance event the DJ can play the cake cutting near the end somewhere, sometimes although a photographer is only hired for a short duration and not all the way to the end of the event.

Custom Music and Schedule is always due 30 days before the event date, including the Grand Entry lineup of who the DJ will be announcing, what order and what song(s).

For all weddings/events a 50% Non-refundable deposit is due upon a signed contract to Spotlight Entertainment, the remaining balance is due the Monday of the week of the event, if your event is to go over the contracted time the final balance can be adjusted at the end of the event and final balance paid. Full Effect 2-3 setup wedding pricing is $225/hour. Average weddings are 6-8 hours, depending on difficulty sometimes a setup and breakdown charge is added.
