We have seen so many wonderful ways to incorporate mother nature in our weddings over the summer. We wanted to share a few of those ideas here with you! If you are thinking about a rustic theme – these might be right up your tree!

Event UpLighting Transforms your Setting

Main Event’s lighting service adds romance, color and ambiance to transform your function room or tent into a magically lit setting for your perfect event. Project a monogram of your names on a wall or ceiling to further personalize your venue. Our lights can also sync to the beat of the music, adding excitement and bringing your dance floor to life!

Event Uplighting is one of the newest trends sweeping the event industry. There are many different people and companies offering different levels and types of Uplighting. Main Event Uplighting is a bit different from most of the Uplighting that you may have seen. We can create an array of beautiful effects for the different levels of your specific event.

During cocktail hour and dinner we can keep one color throughout that time or program a smooth, slow change through a pattern of colors.

Once the party starts and the dance floor is packed, we can have the lights change color to the beat of the music. Enhancing the excitement on the dance floor! This is where our lights are most different from the other lighting companies. Click on the video button to the right and watch the UpLights in action, changing to the beat of the music. We also have this video on a DVD if you prefer, just contact the office and we will send a DVD out to you.


Another feature that sets our Uplighting apart from the others is Main Event Uplighting creates a strong beam of light giving a more intense and impressive look to your reception room. The other types of Uplighting tend to throw a “color wash” instead of a beam of light. We can achieve any color you are looking for from light pastels to deeply concentrated hues, giving your event the tailored look you desire.

Monogram Projection


$100 extra charge added for Monogram Projection which is your names or initials projected onto the wall, ceiling – where ever it looks best for your specific venue!


A Main Event Uplighting technician will handle your lighting the day of your event. This Tech sets up the lights according to the pre-planned design that has been created with you. The Tech can move lights if needed, for example if your cocktail hour is in a different room than the reception. The Tech stays for the whole event to control and program the lights according to the design plan.

Here’s what a client had to say:

“We ordered event uplighting through Main Event DJ’s. It was AMAZING. It really made a HUGE difference in the ambiance in the room. Our venue had high vaulted (exposed wood) ceilings. And it just looked so good! The lights were beautiful at dinner and added something to the evening. When the music really got going later in the night the lights beat to the music and made it look like a night club. It was really awesome! My husband fought me so much on the uplighting (lack of funds)… but told me at the wedding he was glad I fought for it. Because he admitted that it added so much to the environment of the wedding. If you have the extra money… definitely get the uplighting!!!”

Wedding season is in full tilt and what a blast it has been so far. We’ve noticed so many different creative touches our couples are incorporating to make their day special and unique. This year we see our bride and grooms are creating an evening that communicates who they are as a couple.  It’s all about individuality!

Here are a few of our favorites!!

1. Tasting Stations

A lot of couples are keeping guests entertained between the ceremony and dinner by having tasting stations at cocktail hour! It’s a great way to sneak in their favorite foods (some couples do tacos, mac ‘n’ cheese bars, and even olive oil bars and surprise guests with something a little bit different from the usual wedding eats. We also see a lot of mini-desserts instead of passed cake.


2. Remade First Dance Songs

Instead of dancing to Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole, opt for more current versions of classic wedding songs.  (Maroon 5 has an amazing rendition of The Way You Look Tonight and Joss Stone sings L-O-V-E with a beautiful modern twist).

3. Dress Trend: New Colors

It’s no secret that non-white wedding dresses are out in force – from rose, to even darker shades…of silver and gray.

4. Table cards

We’ve seen shutters to clotheslines, to even logs and each one is so clever!

Bridal shows are a great way to meet and vet out the many local wedding vendors that can help you create the wedding of your dreams. In one space, and in one afternoon, you can meet multiple vendors in person and get a feel for if they are a good fit for your special event.

There are so many bridal shows to go to but many of them offer fun, food, and some great prizes, like honeymoons or cash. You can learn valuable info and tips from the area’s most popular wedding vendors in areas like: Cakes, Limousines, Bridal Fashions, Tuxedos, Health & Beauty, DJs, Florists, Honeymoons, PhotoBooths, Photographers, Specialty Lighting, and more.

Vendors you are interested in will want to get your information so having printed cards to hand out or even mailing labels will make it easier for you.

We post upcoming bridal shows on our events page – just click here.


We love meeting with new brides & grooms at the shows we attend. (And you’ll even hear us at many of the local bridal shows as we are the chosen event entertainment!)


The DJ of your wedding or event is the voice of your party. You want to make sure that your event goes smoothly and just the way you have dreamed of. To make sure you have the right fit here are 3 questions you should always ask before moving forward and hiring your DJ.

Fun dance floor

1. Can I see a recent Video Demo that shows the DJs personality, voice, style & general presentation?

Make sure you have the chance to see your particular DJ in action. Do you like his/her voice? Do you like how the present themselves and the way they handle the event? Watching a recent video is the best way to see what you can expect at your event.

2. Will I have a live consultation with my DJ to discuss Music and how each part of my wedding day will be handled, how long does this meeting take?

You want to make sure you have a chance to meet directly with your DJ before your event. There are many details you want to have decided before your special day so that your event runs smoothly. Plan on spending at least an hour with your Dj at this meeting. You’ll review the timeline, your music preferences, how you want the announcements to be read, any special requests etc.

3. Do you have references from RECENT Brides that I may contact?

Look at the recent reviews for your particular DJ (you should find them on Wedding Wire, Google +, Yelp or the knot). You ideally want to see some within the last 3-6 months. Ask for references and reach out to these past brides to make sure you feel comfortable (and excited!) about your DJ selection.

Kibar Dancing on a Cloud

One of the most exciting times at a wedding is the introduction of the new couple at the reception. How do you want to be introduced? How do you want to enter the room? You are the stars of the evening and you’ll want your DJ to work with you to determine just how you want that introduction to flow.

Make sure your DJ understands your titles if appropriate. If one spouse or the other has a formal title, such as a doctoral degree, military rank, judge’s position or ministry position, it is important to use it in the introduction. Examples include:

  • Mr. Dave and Dr. Linda Johnson
  • Lieutenant Colonel and Mrs. Tom Smith
  • The Honorable and Mrs. Samuel Longman
  • Reverend and Mrs. Benjamin O’Brien

You can be introduced using just the husband’s first name or also using the wife’s first name. Just make sure your wishes are clear.

You can have some fun with it, too… like with our great couple here!
