I know there’ve been enough talk about ipod reception advice, but what I need your advice on is the overall set up of DIY music reception. Making a danceable playlist is one thing, but creating the dancing/ disco atmosphere is another right?
I am just thinking the dance space will look too bland and just dim if we leave the venue as is. Is this OK? I have no idea. Are you supposed to do something with the floor?
So bees who have done or will be doing DIY music, please tell me
What did/will you do for lighting? Did you provide your own lighting equipment or did nothing at all? How did it look like?

@gramgeek: Does your venue have things like lights/dance floor available? Or maybe a local party hire company has those things?

based on what i have seen my future fil do for dj work, having a good playlist is the most important part. if you play songs that get people excited thats all you need. once people start dancing they wont care about the extra things like lights. although i would recommend dimming the lights some. you could even get a lamp that holds several bulbs and flll it with colored light bulbs

Thanks I have just sent inquery to my venue cordinator about equipment but I am guessing they don’t have these things available. They don’t list any of these danceable extras on their info sheet when they do specify about a microphone and a cake knife…
@heliabel: Is that right? So it sounds like it will be a cool addition to have a simple disco ball light or something like that. Maybe all these couples who opt for DIY music don’t go as far as DYI lighting. Thanks!
I am still interested to know any opinions!
