It can be quite confusing when it comes to how long to book suppliers for. There are so many suppliers that you hire for events, the Melbourne djs, photographers, photobooth, videographers and it can be hard to decide when each supplier should finish up.
When it comes to the Melbourne Dj, they would obviously need to stay until the end. But what time should they start? You should also book the Dj to start before your guests arrive as it can be quite intrusive if the Dj is bumping his equipment when guests are arriving. The venue also will look a lot neater if the dj os set up and ready to go once guests walk into the room.
When it comes to the start and finish times of the photobooth, it really depends on how many people are at your event. For weddings of over 150 people then it is best to book the booth for 4 or more hours because there is a lot of time guests need to be seated to through the meals and speech’s and first dance. When there is a break from all the formalities the guests can then pop over to the photobooth to have their photo taken.
When it comes to the photographer. It is best to have the photographer to arrive at the start of the function so that they can capture some set up details like flowers, balloons and other decorations. It is also a good idea to take some family photos at the start of the event just so that these important shots are in the album and we don’t need to chase after family members in a large room full of guests.
So we hope this article gives you a better idea on how long to book suppliers for. Depending on the size of your event, sometimes 2 hours for a photographer should be sufficient and if you are throwing a larger event with over 150 guests then a longer booking time for photography and photobooth is definitely recommended.
