Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! It is such an exciting moment in life; once you land back from the moon after your engagement, it is time to get into wedding planning mode. But unless you are a professional wedding planner, chances are you don’t even know where to start. Should you buy your wedding dress? Start looking for a wedding venue? Dive into the wedding decor photos? 

Let us stop you right there because your first step has more to do with finances than it does with wedding items. Apart from everything you need to focus on budgeting your evening entertainment as a priority. You need to know the size and type of event you want and can afford. So, grab a chair and have a talk with your partner, settle a number considering the portion of your savings you are allocating for the big day, your income, and ask your close family if they are participating financially in your wedding. 

Now that you know how much you can invest in your big day, it is time to set your expectations and priorities. Discuss the type of wedding you envision; is it large and lavish? Or more on the intimate side? After that, you can write a first guest list to have an overall number. And then, it is time to make a list of priorities, number them from 1 to 10 what matters the most for you as a couple. 

Here is an example of the elements you should consider within your list. 

  • Wedding venue. 
  • Decor. 
  • Food. 
  • Drinks. 
  • Photography. 
  • Entertainment. 
  • Experiences. 
  • Videography. 
  • Attire. 
  • Honeymoon.
  • Stationery. 
  • Cake. 
  • Ceremony. 
  • Transportation. 
  • Wedding bands. 
  • Wedding favors. 

Your list should start with your non-negotiables and then scale down to those things you could even forgo. Perhaps the main goal of your wedding is to have the best food in town and non-stop music so everyone can dance their shoes off. For some couples, experiences are first, and they choose to host a destination wedding with their nearest and dearest and hire the top photographer to capture every second of it. There is no right or wrong here, it is all about your needs and wishes, because at the end of the day it is your wedding, and you are the one who should enjoy it. 

Now, if wedding entertainment is in your top 5, you probably wonder how to keep your budget within its limits since music, lighting, and other experiences are usually costly. On average, from the total budget of your wedding, 40% goes to your venue and catering, 15% to photography and videography, 20% for décor and flowers, 10% for entertainment, 5% for your wedding attire, and the remaining 10% for your cake, stationery, favors, and transportation. 

So, you need to fit your wedding entertainment on that 10% of the total budget, and if you are trying to save, chances are you will find it hard to get the entertainment you are dreaming of. But sacrificing or lowering your expectations is not necessary when you hire entertainment packages that cover most of your needs at a lower price. 

Evening entertainment for your 2022 wedding might include:

All those details can turn a regular wedding venue and party into a memorable and beautiful one. 

Trez Entertainment has three packages for couples who are seeking to save money and hire top-quality entertainment services. One will cover your basics without even reaching the 1K £. The vision package offers 5 hours of professional wedding DJ hire, with a choice of white or black starlit setup, a custom music playlist. 4-hour unlimited photo booth service with unlimited prints and customized printout. Along with an additional uplighting setup for your room. 

The Elevation wedding DJ package includes all the above, and a white starlit 16 x 16 LED dance floor. And finally, the Desire package also gives you a full starlit top table backdrop and 4ft LED LOVE letters. And if you need to customize any of the elements of each package, you can substitute them with another service of the same price, or you can add more elements such as extra hours, decoration, and interactive services. 

Always consider that evening entertainment does not only imply music; you can add unique services like a casino table or close-up magic. Anyone who does not want to be dancing can also enjoy the night. A digital jukebox might be extra special when you organize an intimate wedding and wish everyone to participate. 

Lighting is a key entertainment element; you can set the mood and atmosphere you envision by adding up lighting in a certain tone. Create a romantic or classic style with a starlit wedding backdrop and dancefloor. For a bohemian or rustic mood, you can incorporate string lights along with amber uplighting.
