Rob Alberti’s Event Services – Shopping using Wedding DJ Prices in CT

By |January 25th, 2016|

Rob Alberti’s Event Services is an award winning company specializing in innovative lighting design and disc jockey wedding entertainment – offers their expertise in searching for the perfect wedding DJ for your reception entertainment.

Rob Alberti’s Event Services offers years of experience and expertise in working with many CT wedding couples trying to plan their wedding reception.   Hiring wedding entertainment is not like going to Walmart to find a coffee maker.  For the coffee maker, you walk into Walmart and see the 4 options in front of you.  Want to save some money?  Go with the cheaper model.  Want something a little nicer and you lean towards the top model.

For wedding entertainment, it is not a commodity on a shelf.    It’s more like shopping for a doctor when you have a rare form of brain tumor.   You don’t just go with the local doctor and you probably would not go with the doctor you met at the nightclub last week.  You’d probably do some research and find out who was the best available for that illness.  Wedding DJ prices in CT can range from a Craig’s List price of about $300 to $2500 or more.

The thing is, a bad DJ can […]

What Goes Into Preparing To DJ A Wedding Reception

By |January 5th, 2016|

Why do Wedding DJs charge so much?  They only work for about 5 hours, right?   Exactly what goes into preparing to DJ a wedding reception?  Let me break it down for you.

After “the sale” and during the final detail stage of preparing for a wedding, this is typically what we will put into your wedding.

Final detail meeting – as we cover a large geographic area (MA, CT, RI and beyond), we will typically drive an hour on average each way for our final detail meeting with our client.  (3 hours travel and meeting time)
Typed Up Questionnaire – after the final detail meeting, we will type up all the information we went over into a neat form that we work off of.  We will send you a copy of this to review and approve. (1 hour)
Music Updates – each week we have to download and preview all the new music out (about 100 songs each week).  We will update all our hard drives with the new music (Main computer, 3 portable drives) for complete back-up  (1 hour)
Music Preparation – We will review your music choices and create play lists for your pre-ceremony music, ceremony music, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing in […]

Rob Alberti’s Event Services – Seven Questions To Ask Your Wedding DJ

By |January 5th, 2016|

Rob Alberti’s Event Services is an award winning company specializing in innovative lighting design and disc jockey wedding entertainment – offers their expertise in finding the right Wedding DJ for your reception entertainment.

Rob Alberti’s Event Services offers years of experience and expertise in working with many CT wedding couples trying to plan their wedding reception.   Exactly how do you decide which of the 100’s of wedding DJs are best for your reception?   Let’s break it down.

Wedding DJ prices in CT can range from a Craig’s List price of about $300 to $2,500 or more.  According to REAL SIMPLE, the average DJ price ranges from around $900 to $1,300.   Clearly, there is something different between the two and the service that you receive.

The thing is, a bad DJ can all but ruin your $20,000-$40,000 wedding (national average range).  With an inexperienced DJ and Master of Ceremony, your guests could be bored.  You could be embarrassed.  Everyone might leave early.  After all the money and time you put into your wedding, this could be devastating.

“The dance floor was crazy the whole night with just about everyone dancing! We met with Rob twice in person before our wedding.  He has great attention to […]

The Bond Ballroom – New Year’s Eve Wedding

By |January 4th, 2016|

We were part of a new year’s eve wedding reception held at The Bond Ballroom in downtown Hartford.  Up on the 11th floor – we had an amazing view of the fireworks at Bushnell Park at midnight.

Our client wanted WHITE up-lighting (we normally recommend some color for a better wow factor) and our photo booth.  We have some images that we wanted to share with you from that evening.

5 Wedding Horror Stories

By |November 28th, 2015|

I’ve been in the wedding business in New England for over 25 years.  In those years, I’ve seen some horrible things happen.  Here are five of my best (or worst) stories from the past.

Justice of the Peace misses ceremony.  A wedding JP thought the ceremony was on Saturday v. Friday (the actual wedding date).   After waiting for a half an hour, we had the bride’s uncle step in to “fake” the ceremony for her wedding guests.  During cocktail hour, we had a substitute JP perform the ceremony in the back room so the marriage was legal.   LESSON LEARNED:  Touch base with all your wedding vendors the week before to confirm dates and times.
Shuttle Bus gets lost.  Our bride arranges for two shuttle buses to pick up guests to bring them from the ceremony to the reception site.  Unfortunately, one of the buses got lost.  Half of her guests were 45 minutes late to the wedding.  They all but missed the social hour.  LESSON LEARNED: Your transportation company should have GPS and printed directions.  If not, assign someone on each transport with their own GPS and directions as co-pilot.
Groom & Bride’s Uncle get into fist fight.  Yes- tensions run […]
