5 Reasons to Bundle Your Wedding Vendors

March 12, 2022

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

A secret that your “fly by night” one-man-show DJ doesn’t want you to know is that he’s probably operating as a double agent. Chances are good that he’s the guy shaking you down during the day to buy your vehicle’s extended warranty and later on he’ll be DJing your wedding as a side gig for extra cash. Not the most stable option, but definitely a step up from plugging your iPhone into a Bluetooth speaker, I suppose.

When choosing your wedding DJ, you want to make sure you do your due diligence and select one of the larger, more reputable DJ companies, and for convenience sake, one that operates  as a “one stop shop” full scale, Entertainment/Production company, in that they offer other services beyond just DJing, including uplighting, dance floor lighting, photo booth, videographer, photographer, drone cameras etc. Generally, this means that they bundle their services into custom packages for their clients based on their individual needs and wants by selling multiple services together under one umbrella pricing structure, usually at a discounted price. The more services the client buys, in general the steeper the discount. Bundling is a marketing tactic that’s been used successfully in business for many years, but what specifically are the benefits of bundling in the event entertainment industry?

1. One Stop Shopping

When choosing to bundle services, you’re dealing with the convenience of a “one stop shop” with all of your vendors housed under one roof. What are the benefits of this? Well, you have one primary point of contact, one bill to pay, one insurance umbrella, considerably less travel (meaning less gas, and at today’s prices… that’s a bonus in itself) and 100% consistency, organization and attention to detail from your one sole vendor. This appeals to both Type A and scatterbrained people alike in that all all wedding related details are kept in one place and easily accessible.

2. Familiar Faces

Stemming off of the above, when the big day finally arrives, you can rest assured that you’ll have a team of vendors who will work seamlessly with one another because it’s almost guaranteed to have been planned that way in advance. They work well with one another, (most even communicate as friends outside of work) and are familiar with each other’s work ethic and individual styles. Having all your vendors on the same team also makes for far better communication, more efficiency and lessens the likelihood of any wedding day mishaps. Lastly, watching them work in sync together to make your wedding come to life is really a beautiful thing.

3. Did Someone Say Stress?

Planning a wedding can be just a tad bit stressful. The 2022/2023 Post Covid Wedding Season is already in high gear and we’ve already seen an unprecedented number of bookings much earlier than anticipated. Why not just lock in all your entire media team with a click of a mouse, pour yourself a large, congratulatory glass of wine and simply be done with it all at once? Doesn’t that sound so easy?

4. The Playing Field Is Clear

Having options can be nice, but it’s easy to become seriously overwhelmed when too many are given at once for multiple service offerings. Using a bundling provider streamlines this process, and allows clients to choose between a few different options rather than choosing a wide variety of services that can very easily get confusing and out of hand.

5. Money, Money, Money

Bundling your entertainment services will more than likely save you money overall, and who doesn’t like to save money? The more services you choose (i.e. the bigger the tab you rack up) generally the bigger the discount that will be passed on as a thank you for your loyalty. Sometimes the company will offer promotional offers that make bundle deals even more enticing, thus sweetening the deal and furthering the cost savings passed on to the client.

Final Toast

There are countless reasons to consider bundling services when choosing your wedding day entertainment partner: cost, convenience, familiarity and one stop shopping are really just skimming the surface. I recommend doing some research on your own to decide if customizing your wedding package is the right move for you. Ultimately, selecting your entertainment partner should be an enjoyable experience, and whatever company you decide to choose should be full of enthusiasm and instill in you the confidence that you’re making the right choice for your big day.

Happy planning!

"Spinner Music Productions was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! I am in the wedding industry myself so finding professional and exceptional vendors was a must - and SMP was nothing short of that! I gave them practically no direction and they somehow knew exactly what I wanted and delivered it perfectly. My dance floor was packed from the moment my reception began until the moment it ended. My guests still tell me that my wedding was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to and I totally credit that to DJ Buono and his staff. I would recommend them a million times over! Book them ASAP!!!"

"I’m not even sure where to begin. Your generosity kindness, organization, and willingness to work with our other vendors and wedding planner was amazing! Not only was David so fun to get to know (by the end he had spent hours talking to us to get our vibe just right), but he was also incredibly professional. He went above and beyond to accommodate every request we had. Not only that but he chose us as a couple to receive an extra service due to the generosity and donation of a previous couple that could not use the services paid for! We will be forever grateful for ALL of the extra miles he went for us. The music was enjoyed by everyone and our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. He also struck the perfect balance between getting everyone on the floor and ready to dance it not being overly excited or cheesy! I’m not sure we can say enough about how amazing our experience was with Spinner Music Productions. Please book them if they are available it is worth every cent!"

"As the mother of the groom I reached out to David to help me create the most spectacular evening for my son and his beautiful bride. I assure you that he and Tim created just that for us. He had the dance floor overflowing from introductions to last call. From the 3 year olds to the 89 years young EVERYONE had an amazing time. We never sat down and guests were raving about how much fun they were having. Do yourself a favor and HIRE Spinner Music. I promise you will thank me!!!"
