The annual engagement and booking season for weddings starts with the Christmas holiday and runs through Valentine’s Day. Industry sources agree this is the busiest time of year for engagements and booking of wedding venues. Between 35% and 60% of all engagements occur during this seven week period. Wedding venues hold open houses and Wedding Expos are everywhere as eager couples begin planning their celebrations, trying to lock in the most select dates. While a wedding day is often considered one of the most significant events of a young adult life, budgeting, planning, and researching can be one of the most stressful events in one’s life.
Davenport also stated, “Expenses for weddings have gone up dramatically over the years. Cost of the wedding venue and food are at the top of the list of costs. Couples planning their weddings need to prioritize their vendors to make sure the most important aspects of their weddings are covered.”
When asked if he had advice for couples, Davenport added, “As the owner of a DJ company, I am a little biased. The DJ is largely responsible for planning the event and controlling the flow of wedding activities and formalities. In addition, the DJ is also performing and entertaining their clients and guests. At the end of the day, it is the DJ who makes all the difference in the success of a wedding. Be sure to meet the DJ in person so that you come away having complete faith and trust is his or her abilities. This is true for all vendors. Be sure to get a written contract from every vendor and ask about things like liability insurance and backup plans in case of equipment breakdown or in the event a vendor is unable to make it to the event (things like this happen a lot more than you might realize).”
