VenueVenue Setup/decorations Ideas.. 1

Hello! We are getting married July 11, 2020. Our reception will be at a Theatre venue. I'm stuck on what to do with the stage. Set the DJ up there? Our Mr. & Mrs. table? But I feel that's not convenient. Hang drapery to make it smaller? We'll be moving the chairs off the wooden floor to make it a dance floor. Also, the curtains are a deep green. I think once we set the Lights to a less brighter setting, you won't notice the color much. (Our wedding colors are Lavender, white, and soft blue)

    I think that looks like a great spot for the DJ. You could also put him off to one side, and use the rest of the stage area for the gift/card table, cake/dessert table, guest book, memorial table, or photo booth, if you are having any of those things.

    I agree that the DJ would look good up on stage!

    My vote is also on the DJ. It's right in front of the dance floor, and gives him a good view of the guests so he can better read the room.

    Hey Natalie! I also think that this would be a great place to set your DJ up. It will keep him in a great spot in front of the dance floor, but also he is out of the way and not taking up floor space that you could utilize for something else.

    We toured one venue that also had a stage. They said most couples put the DJ or band up there, while a few do a head table or just curtain it off completely. Your stage looks much further from the tables than the one we saw, so I think DJ is the best option.

    Thank you ladies! I think that is what we will end up doing- making it the DJ's spot Smiley smile

    Seems like a great space for the DJ, especially if the dance floor will be directly in front of that! Beautiful space.
