Choosing your vendors can feel like a daunting task and you may have many questions. To help you get started, we have included some of the questions brides and grooms ask us most frequently. This list is not intended to be exhaustive, so, if you have questions that aren’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Our office staff will contact you to set up a pre-planning meeting and final meeting with your DJ. These meetings can take place either at our office or over the phone. We feel that both of these meetings are important in the personalization of your wedding. The meetings will give you the opportunity for you and your DJ to get comfortable with one another.
All of the weddings we work are private affairs. Out of respect for our clients, we do not allow clients to come watch us DJ. It should also be noted that no two weddings are the same, so the preferences of the couple may be completely different from your preferences.
We have a flat travel fee of $300 for all events occurring in the San Francisco, Napa Valley, Carmel/Monterrey, and Peninsula areas. Please contact us for a travel estimate if your event is happening in the Sacramento or Central Valley areas!
A non-refundable retainer of $500.00 is required to hold your wedding date and is due seven days after we send out your contract. The remaining balance is required two weeks prior to your wedding date. Acceptable methods of payment include: personal checks, cash, and all major credit cards.
Retainers cannot be refunded, as they are used to hold your wedding date and ensure that your DJ will be available.
The only differences in our DJs are their individual personalities and styles. When you book with Fantasy Sound Event Services, you can expect professionalism and an excellent level of service from all of our DJs.
Music selection is a collaborative process between you and your DJ. Throughout your meetings with your DJ, they will work with you to determine your musical tastes; which styles/artists you enjoy and which you consider “Do Not Play List” candidates. This will ensure that the music that is played at your wedding is tailored to your personal preferences.
We offer a wide variety of Event Lighting and Décor options. We can help you add ambiance and set the mood for your wedding through the use of Decorative Uplights, Dance Lighting, Custom Gobos. luxurious Drapery and custom Chandeliers. Contact us if you would like to learn more about our Lighting and Decor services!
Your DJ will act as Master of Ceremonies and will make any announcements throughout your wedding.
Your DJ will be happy to take requests from your guests during your wedding. If a particular artist or song is on your Do Not Play List, your DJ will honor your preference and will ask for an alternative request.
During your wedding, we do not take breaks. We work throughout your wedding in order to ensure that everything flows smoothly.
Gratuities are not required.Your DJ will be working hard to ensure that your wedding is a success and if you feel your DJ gave you great service, then a tip would be appropriate and greatly appreciated!
Kevin was right - everything was perfect! Several people commented about how smoothly and effortlessly each event flowed into the next, and even more people raved about how amazing the music was - I'll take partial credit for that ;) Thank you to everyone from Fantasy Sound for helping make my wedding absolutely perfect - something a control freak and worry wart like me never believed was possible.
