Silent Disco

Switch up your party with a silent disco

Technology has evolved over the last decades, and every day we found new applications to technologic devices that had been around for years. A silent disco is a great example. You can organize a party and forget about loud music and angry neighbours.

The benefits of this popular trend are many, from not having to worry about finding a venue with the proper permits for amplified music to hosting a versatile event with multiple music choices. You will soon find out all there is to know about silent parties and how you can organize your own.

What is a silent disco party?

It is a party where music is broadcast and listened thru wireless headphones instead of having a sound system. Each attendant will receive a pair of headphones upon arrival, and the fun part about these parties is that your guests can choose between multiple types of music.

Silent parties began in the 1900s when activists tried to reduce noise pollution by listening to music thru their headphones. Later on, in 1994, the Glastonbury festival transmitted a late-night World Cup game and music videos on a giant screen linking the sound to their on-site radio station. Attendants were able to listen passed the sound curfew with their headphones.

By the 2000s, many events followed the trend and soon, renowned museums and DJs partnered to offer unique experiences. By 2005 the term silent disco appeared and gave a proper name to this new concept. Technology soon allowed to broadcast multiple transmissions simultaneously, and wireless technology upgraded the experience.

Why is it a great idea?

First, it takes many worries off your mind; you can rent any venue or host a party at home without worrying about noise restrictions or curfews. Another great thing about them is that you can have a party that includes guests of different ages and music styles and keep them dancing all night long.

Silent disco makes socializing easier. You do not need to be yelling or act like you understand what the other person says while you listen to loud music. You can take off your headphones and have a calmed conversation while every attendant keeps partying and dancing to their favourite music.

It is a unique option for entertainment, and you switch the music and adjust the volume as you wish. Have you ever been to a party where the music is way too loud you can not even hear your thoughts? Or do you prefer loud music and no small talk? Silent disco is for you.

Silent Disco

What type of events can have a silent disco?

Silent disco is ideal for any event that involves dancing and listening to music. From a large wedding to an intimate teenage birthday party, here are a couple of ideas where silent disco can save the day and make your event memorable.

Any party hosted at home or an apartment is a great opportunity for a silent disco. You will entertain everyone and avoid having the neighbours or the police knocking on your door due to the loud music.

Kids and teenager's birthday parties are also ideal for this type of entertainment. They often feel embarrassed around adults, and they want to have privacy. Silent disco allows them to play their favourite tunes without feeling judged. And they will also impress their friends with a unique way of listening to music.

Weddings can benefit from this technology. Sometimes weddings have to stop due to venue sound restrictions. Imagine having an alternative for those that want to keep celebrating with you on your big day!

Outdoor events of any type are some of the most popular; noise restrictions usually apply to this type of venues. You need to apply for a permit to have amplified music or stop at a certain hour to avoid bothering the neighbours. The fun will have no end with a silent disco hire.

How to organize a silent disco party?

  1. Choose your favourite venue; it can be large or small, depending on the type of event you are planning and the guests' number. Remember that you do not have to worry about the noise limit.
  2. Select the perfect headphones. Prefer those with multichannel options so your attendants can switch between different genres and check the sound quality to provide the best experience to your guests.
  3. Create the right atmosphere with lighting, some screens, and even a photobooth. A party is more than just music, and you must think about every detail to throw a successful celebration.
  4. Decide if you are hiring one or two DJs or if you plan to transmit music thru your device. Having two DJs is highly entertaining because they offer different experiences simultaneously and compete for the crowd attention. And if you are hosting an intimate reunion, you can connect your preferred music device.
  5. Enjoy having a noise-free gathering, have a great and clear conversation with your friends or meet new people, look at the colour of their headphones, and if you share the colour, you can start a conversation with them.

Details to keep in mind.

  • Quality

Always make sure you rent quality equipment with all the necessary features. Ask how many channels they have access to and how long the battery lasts. Renting with the right vendor will ensure hours of fun.

  • Quantity

From a couple of headphones to a couple of hundreds, make sure your vendor has enough devices to cover your entire party.

  • Charging stations

Make sure you set up a couple of charging stations just if anyone needs to charge its device.

  • Crowd control

If you are hosting a large silent disco party, consider having controlled access and exit so that every device returns safely to your hands.

  • Service

Hire a professional that takes care of all the logistics and provides everything you need to set up the headphones.

Now you know, silent disco parties are more than a futuristic concept. They are here and available for your next Essex party or casual gathering. No matter the size of your event, we have you covered with plenty of available devices and top service to provide a great experience to you and your guests. Ideas for your outdoor wedding.

Wedding Reception Entertainment Tips

What is a wedding without entertainment? It’s one reason why people show up in the first place. They come for a chance to celebrate your love and party with your other friends. They also come for the food and the drinks.

Who wouldn’t want this after the kind of months we’ve had? For the longest time, people couldn’t even meet up with their loved ones physically. Social gatherings were banned, and the government shut pubs down. Your wedding would probably be the first breather your guests would have in months.

If you want to have a memorable and fun wedding here in the UK (and you should), your wedding entertainment must be unique. It should be geared towards giving your guests the best experience. You all deserve to have the time of your lives.

As an experienced wedding entertainment company, we would say we have a bit of experience with memorable weddings here in the Essex area. At Trez Entertainment, we’ve been helping couples reach and surpass their wedding entertainment goals for quite a while. Here are some tips that if applied, will help you do the same.

Outstanding Décor

Let your guests walk into your wedding reception and be captivated by its beauty. This is a brilliant start for your wedding reception and will put your guests in a good mood. Guests who are in a good mood will have more fun and be ready to party at your event. A wedding with those kinds of guests is bound to be memorable.

Some details to concentrate on to achieve this are your wedding flowers. Flowers add a touch of romance and beauty to your event that no other décor can bring. Your wedding flower arrangement has to be superb if you want to create the right effect.

You can also incorporate flower walls into your design. They create great backdrops for places like your altar, cake table, and your sweetheart table. A flower wall would also be a brilliant spot for your guests to take beautiful selfies at your wedding.

Your Wedding Lighting

Your wedding lighting has the power to uplift or dampen the mood of your wedding guests. If you look around your everyday life, you’ll notice how light is used to affect emotions subtly. For example, there’s a reason why club lights are different.

You can apply the same concept to your wedding. The right use of lights in your wedding décor will provide some impressive changes. From LED light-up Letters to LED backdrops and neon signs, your wedding mood would be at an all-time high. You can even have a light show to signify the end of special moments, like your first dance. It would be memorable.

Serve Great Wedding Food and Drinks

One study conducted on weddings showed that most of the guests come for the food. If you want to have a memorable wedding, you should serve exceptionally delicious wedding food. Drinks are also a part of why weddings are fun, so you should treat your guests to some of the best. We offer a mobile bar that is well suited for weddings here at Trez entertainment. We also create chocolate fountains. With these, your guests are sure to have a great time.

Unique Music Ideas

If you want your guests to have a great time at your event, you’re going to have to do more than just regular music. Rather than going for either a DJ or Live Music, how about a combination of both? We’ve seen some really great collaborations between wedding DJs and live musicians for weddings.

While at it, please give your guests a safe and fun space to dance their hearts away. So, make sure your dancefloor is of the best quality. It’ll improve your wedding atmosphere too. The right kind of dancefloor is especially important if you’re having an outdoor wedding. You don’t want your Aunt Marge’s heels sinking into the grass while she tries to do the Harlem shake.

Use Ice Breakers

Having guests from both sides of the family who do not know each other can be interesting. If there is no opportunity for them to bond, you’ll notice them form little packs who are only speaking to themselves. How is that fun? You can’t have a memorable wedding that way!

People attend weddings for the chance to meet and make new friends. So, give your guests a chance to meet one another and talk. You can do this by planning activities that are sure to get lively conversations going.

For example, you can have a table dance-off. At a table dance-off, once your DJ plays a particular song, a table who has been informed prior has to get up and dance. That’s their song, you can even use that song as a unique table name. Providing things like Photobooths will also do the same. Instead of a regular guest book, your guests can take fun Polaroid pictures with each other and send you lovely messages at the back.

Trez Entertainment offers you over one kind of photo booth to revolutionise your wedding entertainment. We have the classic photo booth, which is sure to jog back some lovely memories of fun childhood times for your guests. We also have a much more modern classic magic mirror photo booth. Your guests will have a great time with these at your event.

The key to having an amazing time at your wedding is to be prepared to have fun. You’ve spent all this time planning and everyone who is there is celebrating with you. Once you apply the tips above, you're bound to make your wedding entertainment a success. So, what are you waiting for?

Here at Trez Entertainment, we’ve made exceptional weddings in Essex our passion. Your wedding entertainment can be an unforgettable experience if you work with us. So, why not contact us today, and let’s make some splendid plans where that is concerned? We would love to hear from you.


5 Finishing Touches to Make Your Party Outstanding

When you throw a party, of any kind of event for you and your friends and family, you always want to add that extra ”Wow” factor. You still want some type of feature or finishing touch that has them talking about your went for years to come.

 For some people, however, it can be quite challenging to work out how they can tweak their event to make it livelier than ever, and make sure that it stays in the mind of all guests.

 So to help with that, we have compiled five finishing touches, to make your next event outstanding

 

5. Fancy Dress

They are countless reasons why adding a little Fancy Dress can make your party outstanding. There is a whole range of themes for you to choose from, and you can choose whichever one matches your event best.

You could choose a specific film, TV show, or perhaps you may encourage a couple of guests to come in matching outfits.  

Themes like this also allow the chance for guests to break the ice with each other through their costume choices.

 

4. Digital Jukebox

Perhaps you're having some kind of themed party or event; in such case, a digital jukebox is a fantastic alternative to a regular DJ or band.

Further yet, should you hire a band, the Jukebox can take the place of the group while they have a break, meaning your guests can continue dancing to their favourite music.  

What’s more is, without your digital jukebox services, you’ll never run out of tunes to entertain your guests with. Over 28,000 tracks are available, all that you need to do is create a playlist, and you’re ready to go!

 

3. Photobooth

 When you have a special day or event, it’s obvious how much everybody loves to take snaps to share on social media.

But these photo booths are so much more for just capturing photos; they are for capturing memories. Our Photobooths offer free printouts, meaning unlike with your smartphone, you have a physical hard copy of all the beautiful snaps you can take. 

What’s more, is, it is highly entertaining for all of your guests. The photo booth offers fun and excitement for everybody at your event, from young children to grandparents.

 

2. Custom Invitations  

Customising your event invitations are the perfect way to personalise your event. By having the chance to design the colour layout and font, you have the opportunity to show guests just how much the event means to you.  

It also gives them the chance to keep the invitation just for keepsake. If it were an event for your son or daughter, wouldn’t you want the same thing? 

What’s me is, it is much quicker to simply print off a batch of custom made and beautifully designed invitations, compared to the time it takes to

 

1. Easy Party Access

This one may seem rather obvious, but we don’t believe that it’s talked about enough, so we are mentioning it here.

When you plan your event, you may spend all the time you need to touch up all the details, ensuring that you have the finishing touches mentioned above included and that everything is running smoothly.

However, if people end up having to go through hassle and stress to get to the event, that’s how they’re going to remember the night, unfortunately.

By contacting taxi cab companies before your event, you can organise transport for all of your guests when the party is over.  

If it’s a really big event, you may even arrange private cars to wait outside for when the event is finished. 

Other than that, even making sure your event is nearby a train station could make your event much more straightforward for your guests.

Here at Trez Entertainment, we understand that. That's why we have compiled this list of the Top 5 Things to Have At Your Wedding, to truly add the ”Wow” factor to the experience of your guests.

5. DJ

DJ’s are perfect for creating the exact ambience that you want at your reception. They can adjust their music to the moods (or wants) of the audience, thanks to the wide selection available right at their fingertips.

The DJs job is to keep the crowd dancing. They have years of experience in doing this and can seamlessly move through the gears when your crowd needs it.

They have no issue in troubleshooting technical issues and are experts in adjusting the volume levels between speakers, microphones and the music (for ceremonies and toasts, etc.).

4. Photo Booth

In the digital age nowadays, with social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, we are always looking for ways to share fun photos of our friends and us on nights out. Wedding days are no different.

That's why Photo booths make for fantastic entertainment on your wedding day. The best thing about them? They are suitable for people of all ages. You will see everybody from young children to grandparents enjoy a photo booth.

Photo booths are genuinely a fantastic way to provide entertainment on your wedding day, right the way through the night!

3. Dance Floor

Nothing quite makes a wedding experience a night I remember like a giant dancefloor.

Not only is the dancefloor the place for the romantic first and to take place, but later in the night, it will also become the soul of the party for you and your guests.

Isn't dancing the very best part of any wedding reception? Of course, it is! If you're searching for a dance floor for your wedding, you could fabulously light up the room in style, win our stunning LED dance floor, to create a magical scene that you will never forget.

2. Flower Wall

Nothing quite makes wedding photos look so dreamily romantic, a flower wall. A luxurious flower wall installation is a great way to create a floral point at your wedding.

And the best bit about flower walls is that they can work anywhere. You could have one at the ceremony entrance, the backdrop of the vow exchange or at the reception to create the top table effect, or anywhere else to draw attention.

Flowers are also a beautiful way for you to bring the outdoors indoors if you and your partner love mother nature but are Boston an indoor ceremony or reception.

1. Light Up Letters

Nothing says ”Happy Ever After” better than big giant light up letters, right? That's why, for your special day, Light Up Letters can genuinely make the difference in setting the scene.

Even adding your initials in LED Light Up Letters, can be a stylish statement of displaying your affection for one another, not to mention that it looks fantastic in photographs!

And you don't have to worry about your guests' safety with the lights either because most LED letters (like ours at Trez Entertainment) don't heat up, meaning you can have peace of mind while your glowing letters light up the room.
