DJ Frequently Asked Questions
DJ FAQ’s – DO YOU PROVIDE MUSIC FOR THE WEDDING CEREMONY?
We often provide the ceremony music. Let us know if the ceremony is in the same area as the reception, or a different location. We’ll handle it and be happy to share our ideas for processionals, recessionals and classical pieces. DJ FAQ’s? Just ask!
OUR COCKTAIL HOUR IS GOING TO BE IN A SEPARATE ROOM FROM THE RECEPTION. IS THAT A PROBLEM?
No. We suggest that you opt for us to provide an additional sound system which allows for uninterrupted music as your guests mingle and enjoy catching up over a cocktail. We have a very nice compact wireless system that is perfect for Cocktail Hour and Wedding Ceremony Sound.
WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU OFFER?
Our music library is suitable for all occasions and can be modified for any event. We feature over 35,000 track titles, and music is available from the 1940’s all the way up to today’s top 10. We have it and we can mix the songs together to make the music work for your entire guest list. This is where our experience stands out. Before we were rocking weddings we were dj’s FIRST!
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DOE YOU PROVIDE?
We provide everything you would need for an event. We even have generators and tents available. We use only pro level equipment from companies like our sponsor Yamaha and Nexo/Yamaha large scale systems. Look for our staff promoting Yamaha at industry events this coming year. We also feature equipment from Chauvet Professional Lighting.
CAN WE MAKE OUR OWN REQUESTS? DJ FAQ’s?
Absolutely. We encourage you to customize your event for you and your guests. Before your wedding, we will meet and discuss all of the music selections and details for your evening. We will use your playlist, and your DO NOT playlist accordingly. This is your event, with your agenda.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK?
Generally speaking, we book six to nine months in advance. We have also booked events in under two weeks and as far out as eighteen months. Call as soon as you know the date you are interested in, so we can talk about our availability.
WHAT IF WE ONLY NEED LIGHTING, NOT DJ SERVICES?
Not a problem. We have a professional staff of lighting technicians who can customize your event, set up the equipment, operate it during the event, and tear it down at the end of the night. We also offer pinspot lighting to highlight your centerpieces at each table. Lighting changes the entire atmosphere of a room, let us do that for you! DJ FAQ’s? Just ask!
WHAT KIND OF PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, and cashier’s check. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. On some packages we also offer affordable payment plans so you can go “all out” and ease the financial burden.
IS A RETAINER REQUIRED TO RESERVE OUR DATE?
Yes. We require a retainer to reserve the items and secure your date. We can also set you up on an easy pay payment plan. The remaining balance is due 14 days before your event. DJ FAQ’s? Just ask!
WHAT IF, AT THE RECEPTION, WE WANT OUR EVENT HOST TO PLAY BEYOND THE CONTRACTED TIME?
Not a problem. We only book one event per host per day, so there are no time restrictions. Simply authorize the DJ to stay as long as you would like. We will verify with the venue and continue the party!
Photo Booth Frequently Asked Questions
How is Sparty Photo Booth different than other photo booth companies?
When you select Sparty Photo Booth you can expect a simple, professional and worry-free experience. Here are some of the things we think set us apart…
We are a local Michigan owned company with a team of dedicated professionals who will work with you every step of the way and are committed to the success of your event.
The elegant and modern design of our photo booth compliments any event décor and creates the right impression
We use the latest technology so our prints are truly lab-quality which means you can enjoy them for years to come
Our competitive pricing makes the photo booth a great option for your event
How does the photo booth work?
Our photo booths are designed to be very easy to use. Simply enter the booth, touch start and have some fun. Once you exit the booth your lab-quality prints are available in less than 10 seconds! But don’t worry, there is always a booth attendant on site should you or your guests have any questions.
Do guests get their photo strips at the event?
Yes! Once your guests exit the photo booth they will receive two lab-quality photo strips in less than 10 seconds.
How many people can use the photo booth at one time?
For best results, we recommend that 8 or less guests use the booth at one time. However, we are not ones to stifle the fun so go ahead – we have had a whole football team in before!
Do guests pay to use the photo booth?
No. The cost of the photo booth rental allows your guests to use the photo booth as much as they like during the rental period. You may also purchase additional options to enhance your guests’ experience.
Is there a limit on the number of times guests can use the booth?
We encourage you and your guests to use the booth as much as you can during the rental period – we would never put a limit on fun! If you are planning an event with more than 300 guests we suggest having a second booth available to ensure all guests have an opportunity to use the booth and minimize wait time. Please give us a call for additional details and discounted pricing for multiple booth rentals.
Will someone from Sparty Photo Booth be at my event?
No worries here! As part of our promise for a worry-free experience there will be at least one full-time booth attendant at your event to manage the photo booth and engage guests
Can you create a logo for my event or do I have to provide my own?
We can accommodate either option. If you already have a logo for your event, we will work with you to incorporate it in to the photo strip prints. If you need to have a custom logo created, we will have one of our graphic designers create a logo that is just right for you.
What type of space do you need to setup the booth?
We recommend a 10’ x 10’ space to allow enough room for the photo booth, allows guests space to easily enter and exit the booth and room for guests waiting to use the booth.
What type of power does the booth require?
The booth only requires access to a standard household outlet (110 volt, 15 amps). It is preferable that we are on a circuit that is not being used by other electronic devices
Can the booth be placed outdoors?
The booth may be placed outdoors on a level surface that is covered and protected from the elements (rain, sun, etc.) and where there is access to power. We can also provide a 10’x10 tent dedicated for the photo booth for a small fee.
