Imagine a room full of dancing people and no loud music. That’s the silent disco, so called because you hear your choice of music through wireless headphones so no one without a headset can hear. Genius idea? We think it is, so here’s what silent wedding discos are all about.
‘Noise pollution’, that is disturbing the silence, can be an issue for any party held in close proximity to where people are sleeping. In most places it is generally acceptable to have a loud disco on until midnight in an indoor space but any later and noise can be a problem. Not with the silent wedding disco Silent Noize Events offers.
How a silent disco works
A silent disco is a very modern concept in music entertainment that is ideal for your wedding reception. The way it works is simple: each guest is given a wireless headset which has a choice of channels and individual volume controls.
Professional DJs play the music you ask for, and your guests are able to switch between channels to choose which DJ/band they want to dance to. A wireless stereo transmitter works within a 100 meter range and technicians are on hand to offer assistance through the evening to ensure everyone has a great time. You could hire just a few headsets or hundreds, depending on how many guests you have at your wedding.
Advantages of the silent disco
The main advantage of a silent disco is that it can take place virtually anywhere and at any time of night. There is no noise pollution as music is not being transmitted through speakers so you could hold your wedding disco in the grounds of your venue, local pub, hotel or stately home, or even in the forest.
If you’re worried it sounds expensive, it’s not, it’s actually very versatile as you don’t have to hire the whole DJ package. You could choose to hire just the wireless headset equipment and DJ your own party.
