Ensure You Properly Prepare For Live Entertainment At Your Wedding Reception
When planning a wedding, there are many people who forget to consider the rentals that they will need for the entertainment during their wedding reception. Many couples choose to have dancing take place during their wedding reception to allow the wedding party and the guests to hang out and have fun together. If you plan to have dancing at your wedding, use this guide to ensure you rent everything you need to have the reception be as great as it can be.
Consider Renting a Stage
If you plan to have a live band at your wedding reception, you should consider renting a stage. The stage will allow the band to play freely without worrying about someone bumping into them while dancing. Also, the stage allows everyone at your reception to be able to see the band while they play. Rental stages are available in many different sizes so choosing the right size stage for the space is important.
Consider Renting Lighting
Many party rental companies have lighting available that you can rent to shine on the band as they play. The lighting needs to be set up correctly to ensure that the light does not shine in the bands’ eyes the entire time they are performing. The lights will often be secured to poles so they can be adjusted in height and situated on the edges of the stage so no one’s view of the band is obstructed.
Consider Renting a Dance Floor
Finally, all of your guests need a place to dance during your reception. Measure the area available to you and choose a floor that will fit perfectly in the space. You want to choose a floor that is large enough for many people to dance at one time, but not so large the floor takes over the little space you have available to you. You can also choose a lighted floor if you want to give the space an even more unique look.
These three rental options can typically be rented from a single party rental company, like Alex Party Supplies. The company will deliver the items to your venue and some companies may even set them up for you. Be sure that you take the time to listen how to operate the lights and establish a time when the items will be picked up after the wedding finishes. You want to be sure that everyone leaves the dance floor and that the band stops playing before the people come to get the rentals.
