Wedding season is on in NY: Invite everyone you want, dance like it’s 2019!
New York has lifted its Covid-19 capacity limits to allow up to 250 guests indoors and up to 500 people outdoors without requiring Covid-19 testing or proof of vaccination.
Per the CDC's updated recommendations, wearing masks is not neccesary for vaccinated people.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING YOU CELEBRATE YOUR BIGGEST DAY!
DELTA VARIANT UPDATE | 8/19/21
We're equipped to adapt to changes due to Covid regulations. We've had multiple clients who've had to shift their dates overe the last 12 months, and subsequently received 5 star reviews. As a responsible business, we do have contingency arrangements to accommodate clients with shifting dates.
Related verbiage from our contract:
RESCHEDULING POLICY DURING ANY GOVERNMENT OR CIVIL AUTHORITY REGULATIONS PROHIBITING GATHERINGS
• Clients who are forced to move their event/wedding date due to a state executive order or other regulations by Governmental or Civil Authorities prohibiting business and/or any social activities on the contracted date, are offered priority rescheduling for a second available date in the current, or following calendar year. There will be no additional date retainer fee, and all payments will be applied to that date. An updated contract will be drafted to reflect the new date and any other changes.
RESCHEDULING AVAILABILITY • As of Q2 2020, in order to ensure we can continue to provide our consistent high level of service, and assist with accommodating clients forced to reschedule their events, we've taken on additional staff. If you're forced to shift your date, we are fortified with the staff to better accommodate emergency changes. Everyone on our team has over 10 years experience as a DJ, and has extensive wedding‑focused experience.
The above applies only to government regulations prohibiting gatherings and/or celebrating weddings, and we cannot move dates due to regulations like masks, social distancing, travel restrictions, guest count etc.
Due to very limited seasonal availability of Saturday dates, client's making the decision (not forced by the NY State PAUSE executive order) to move the date of their Saturday event, we can offer the following options:
1. We will offer priority rescheduling to any available Friday or Sunday within 13 months, applying all of your payments with no additional retainer fee, and only charge a 7% rate increase for any wedding moving to the next calendar year. This 7% is our typical annual rate change and reflects what you'd have been quoted had you inquired regarding any date the following calendar year.
2. If you choose to schedule your wedding to a Friday or Sunday date beyond 13 months, or choose to move to any Saturday in the current or next calendar year, there will be an additional new date retainer fee, as well as a 7% rate increase for any wedding moving to the next calendar year. This 7% is our typical annual rate change and reflects that you'd have been quoted had you inquired regarding any date the following calendar year. To move forward and secure your date, we'll create an updated contract, which will reflect the new date and the updated payment schedule.
*Note: We cannot downgrade your contract or remove any services.
Please know, we want to be as flexible as possible. While we hate to have to charge any additional fee, locking out multiple dates for the rate of a single wedding is not sustainable for the future of our business. Ensuring we're able to serve you during AND after these unprecedented times is a top priority.
