Selecting the best entertainment for your once in a lifetime celebration can be an overwhelming task so we thought it would be helpful to provide some insight to the “stress-free” SCE Wedding process.
We summarized it with a seven step process and listed it below for you to see.
Step one: Upon contacting the SCE studio via phone (888)278-0900 or by the Contact page on this site, we will set up a face to face event consultation. The entertainment consultation can last anywhere from 45 mins to 2 hours depending on the discussion points and conversation. The initial consultation is a great way for you to meet with the Event Host (who will be the lead SCE team member at your event). YES, You will meet the person who will personally be at your event, DAY 1. Additionally, the initial consultation is a great way to learn about our passion, our talent, our ability and how SCE will design our services around your vision or event requirements. You will quickly learn there is no standard, there is no average, there is no cookie cutter, there are no packages…… and most imporantly- the SCE team embraces one key philosophy – Entertainment Excellence. (For out of state or non local couples, we can do a SCE Event Live, iChat and Skype virtual consultations as well)
Note: We will not ask you to sign a contract on the spot, or require a deposit to hold the date. Each client will have up to 2 weeks to meet with other entertainment professionals in the area (we will also furnish a list of other talented DJs & friends if needed).
Step two: Decision time. At the end of the two week holding period, a decision will be required. To secure the service offerings from NJ wedding DJ experts, SCE Event Group, a signed contract and a 20% retainer/deposit is required. Contracts will be mailed or emailed to each and every couple along with access to our online planning system. That will lock you and your entertainer in for your celebration.
Step three: Planning phase. During the planning phase, couples are encouraged to take advantage of the online planning tools made available to all using SCE. We also invite and encourage all clients to follow our blog, facebook fanpage and twitter account, to stay in the know as to all the “cool things” we do for our wedding couples. This is a great way to stay up to speed to our entertainment offerings and latest trends. All clients will also receive the direct contact information for their entertainment host and are welcomed to reach out to them or our office if they need to discuss any particulars regarding their celebration or service.
Step four: Touching base. For all couples that reserve a year or more out, we will contact you at about the 6 month mark to set up a creative session about your celebration.
Step five: Event review. Approximately 1 month before the celebration, it is time for the final event review. At the face to face final event review, the entertainment host and couple will go over all of the celebration details regarding the celebration. Celebration information, Music selections, Lighting Design and Multi-Media production items will all be addressed and finalized at this time.
Step six: Finalization. Expect a call or email the week of the celebration to ensure all details have not been changed.
Step seven: Game day. By this point of the process, you should feel relieved and excited. All of the planning has been completed and the SCE team will ensure each and every request or requirement is materialized at your celebration to perfection. Now it is time to enjoy the wedding celebration, and be a guest at your own event, knowing SCE has you covered for all entertainment items.
