We get it, organising a party is a lot of money. You have to pay for so many things like a Melbourne Dj, the food, the drinks, the entertainment, the decorations, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can spend on a party. But if you have a tight budget to work with you can be very creative and save money on a lot of items.
A Melbourne Dj is definitely necessary if you are holding your event at a venue and also if it is an older party like a 18th, 21st, 30th birthday or a formal. But for some smaller house parties that are a little low key, Melbourne Dj hire also hire out sound and light kits. These kits include speakers and a lighting system where you can set up in your party space, connect your laptop or your iPhone and the professional speakers will play your tracks. The have been small house warming parties and pool parties our Melbourne DJs have worked at where we were only needed to play some popular top 40 and classic pop tracks. One way those clients could have saved money was to hire the sound and lighting system.
You can also save money buy buying the food in bulk, a lot of our clients head to Costco before the party and buy sandwiches, sushi platters and little snacks. Pizza generally is an economical catering option but there are so many other options like chicken nuggets and pies that can be thrown in the oven.
Another way to save money is on the decorations which can really add up. There are people selling their party decorations online for a fraction of the price they spent. Left over streamers, balloons, napkins and cutlery is a popular item thrown on eBay or Facebook marketplace. Occasionally you may also come around some foil helium balloons and if you are lucky some balloon garlands as well.
So here are some creative ideas you can save money at your party. Melbourne Dj hire also hire out photobooth machines and roaming photographers as well so if you are looking to save some more money, let us combined a package for you.
