Whether you want a small, simple wedding or a big, lavish affair, planning your wedding day can turn pretty overwhelming, especially when you have to hire professionals and take major decisions, and delegate responsibilities. Booking wedding vendors is essential as these people ensure that your big day runs smoothly. However, it is important not to rush into any decision, which can lead you skipping on hiring the right professionals. Also, you could come across plenty of people offering unsolicited advice that can make planning a wedding much more difficult than it has to be.

To help you steer clear of major misconceptions and negative opinions about weddings, After Hours Productions has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about DJs, photography, or videography for weddings.

Myth 1: If I hire people from the same company, I won’t get a diversity of talent

People are all different. Each person has their own unique perspective and brings their ideas and objectives to the table. At After Hours Productions, we flourish because of the diversity of ideas we provide for each project.

Myth 2: I should only hire either a photographer or a videographer

Each profession brings a perspective of what is happening in a unique way. Photographers capture the moment, and you fill in the storyline of what is happening as you look at the picture. With videography, the story is told as it actually occurs. Both add a depth to the day that either alone would miss. Our teams of videographers and photographers work together to create the most stunning and beautiful story of your day.

Myth 3: A DJ isn’t as fun as a band

While a band with multiple members brings a wow factor, most bands are limited in the music scope and greatly increase the cost per song played. The singers usually sound good on a style or two of music but aren’t able to reproduce all varieties of music. Bands fill the gaps by throwing on iPods of music during their breaks. If you pay attention, you will find that the iPod breaks are danced to more than the actual music that the band plays.

On the other hand, DJs can be more interactive by being on the floor, talking on the mic, and engaging the crowd without having to be concerned about playing the right notes or singing the wrong lyrics. A DJ can play any and all styles of music you like. This also enables everyone present to have the opportunity to hear something they like and dance to. Music changes constantly, but bands have a setlist that usually does not vary much. DJs will take requests all night. With incredibly large music libraries DJ have the upper hand for selection, dance floor interaction, and price.

In conclusion, myths shouldn’t stop you from seeking the real truth of what you can and should expect from your entertainment and media outlet.
