When planning a wedding or other big event, one of our absolute favorite parts is putting together a playlist. Curating your favorite music to share with your friends and family can really set the mood. But no matter what you do, it isn’t always a good mood.
If you’re stuck at a venue with a noise ordinance or if you love Kendrick Lamar but know that your grandma will be offended by rap, you have a solution: the silent disco.
If the name doesn’t give it away, silent disco is a unique and different way to DJ a party. Instead of the emcee blasting the music through speakers set around your venue, the music transmits to Bluetooth headphones that your guests wear. They can choose from 2 or 3 channels (depending on the setup), so some guests can boogie to Beyoncé, others can shimmy to The Shins, and another set can do the twist to some Chubby Checker.
Silent discos are not only a way to provide varied guest experiences, it also allows older guests to sit out on the action and visit with one another without having to shout over the loud music. It’s a win-win situation! If you're planning a wedding and now have the music nailed down, figure out what else you need to do with our complete guide to planning your dream wedding.
