Well, our first full month back (and first of our new monthly blog posts) has been and gone in the blink of an eye. It seems like this pesky virus and restrictions are a distant memory now we are once again attending so many fantastic weddings.
It was our intention to do a monthly blog post and highlight some memorable times from the month – but have realised it is just not possible as there have been so many highlights and each month will be the same. Back to the drawing board there then.
What a month August has been, although it has been really busy, surprisingly it still hasn’t been our busiest ever August – although admittedly it did feel as though it was.
Getting back into the swing of things fully did take a bit time – especially when it came to setting up and packing away times – and with covid/isolating there were a lot of challenges which we simply could not prepare for. Thankfully though we got there in the end.
The beginning of the month can only be described as ‘hectic’ when it came to weddings with everyone simply desperate to hit the dancefloor once again. It is very emotional for us to see full dancefloors once again and the honour of asking everyone to join in during the first dance is something that still touches us at each and every wedding.
We did have a few restrictions about guests approaching the DJ booth for song requests, but implemented a ‘Text a Request’ system which worked great. We have relaxed this and allow people once again to pop up to make a request, but the text facility will be there if ever needed again.
Throughout the Pandemic we were still working as hard as ever behind the scenes and are delighted to announce that we are now recommended by many more venues in the area as well as becoming the Resident DJ Company at 2 fantastic new venues. We have not really done much marketing as such as most of our bookings actually come from recommendations from previous couples, people who have attended weddings we have worked at and also from other wedding suppliers.
One part of marketing we are doing less of is Wedding Fayres. We will not be out and about most weeks at fayres like normal. It is a disappointing decision as we loved attending fayres to talk to couples planning their wedding as well as other suppliers. Most wedding fayres are on a Sunday and we are already have bookings every Sunday this year so do not want to stretch ourselves too thin by attending a wedding fayre (which is normally on a Sunday morning after a late Saturday Night) then dashing to a wedding in the evening.
We do have an evening wedding fayre we are attending at The Black Horse in Beamish on Thursday 9th September from 6pm so would be great to see you there.
So, that is August done, now onto September – which IS our busiest September ever !
