Outdoor weddings...

They sure can be fun...but there are challenges.
Good weather of course is the variable that can be hoped for but not planned on. In 20 years of DJing weddings I can tell you that we have only had one ceremony moved inside and one reception that was rained heavily on but the tent protected all. Fun Times DJ might be good luck!
Insects can be another challenge. Mosquitoes on the guests, flies on the food or every seven years secedas in the air, very loud. Planning ahead can minimize their impact.
Neighbors. Make sure you invite them. Another thing you can do to play it safe is to lower the times in the day. Instead of 6p to 12a do 3:30p to 9:30p.
Have a great wedding and get a DJ to make sure it is the right mix of outdoor casual with the right amount of wedding formal.
I know one...Fun Times DJ. With coverage all over Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin with the majority of our work done in Chicagoland. 847-406-3635.

Photobooths in Chicagoland.

Photobooths are definitely a trend at weddings. Here is how to spot a good one. Get one that fits more than just 2 people. The advantage here is that it is more likely to look nicer in your beautifully decorated room. More people mean more fun in the picture as well! These are the types we have at Fun Times DJ.
Make sure you can see it in advance of booking it. Also ask to see examples of the photos, it will give you a better idea of quality.
The average price is right around $1000. Don't get sucked into a low price/low quality booth, then it might be better to skip.!

Have fun with your pictures!

Yes, take the serious pictures but have some fun too! Be yourself and give yourself something to smile about when showing your album to your grandkids.
