I loved instant request in our first meeting due to their organization and around business mode. They made me feel comfortable they would capture every detail pertaining to my wedding music, match us with a DJ with similar style, and had a reasonable price! Their online event planner helped me think through how my wedding would flow and what songs I needed to pick out. Rick Ausland was our DJ and he did a fantastic job! Our dance floor was packed from the first to last song, and he played all our favorites :)

My husband and I really liked how they have an online event planner where we could have literally chosen every song that was played. They even downloaded our first song for us, since at the time they did not have it in their enormous music library. Our DJ Andy was fantastic. He approached my husband and I when we got there, to let us know that at anytime in the night if we wanted to change the music or just even stop a song that he would. Our dance floor was packed the entire night! You have the flexibility to choose the type of DJ that you want. We wanted a minimally interactive DJ and that is exactly what we got. The cost is very reasonable in our opinion!

Best wedding DJ I have ever seen! We had a blast partying with Matt from Instant Request. He was out getting the party started, and made sure to keep me on track for things I had scheduled! Would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Our DJ, Jason was awesome! He read the crowd and kept everybody on the dance floor. We had put music on an iPad and he mixed it in seamlessly.
Our wedding was an expansive, outdoor with 2 ceremonies, cocktail hours inbetween and a lot of ground to cover. They covered it all without and glitches.
I really loved their online playlist selector. You choose all of the songs you want or DON'T want! You also talk with your DJ before they event to hash out details. It went so smoothly!

We loved Instant Request's online event planner. This planner allowed us to be very detailed in planning our wedding reception music and entertainment. Our DJ checked in with us 3 weeks before the wedding and got last-minute instructions. He executed our "vision" for what our wedding dance would look like perfectly! Our guests stayed out on the dance floor all night...from the first song to the very last!

e were very pleased with instant request- they were very professional and friendly. They helped to make the reception go smoothly, and maintained a full dance floor all night!
We used them for both DJ services and uplights- the lights looked great. They set-up and take down, so it's very convenient. Everything looked wonderful!

I recently had Instant Request for our DJ in our wedding September 2012. I found their rate to be very reasonable after shopping around. The DJ created a good mix of songs, we had many people out on the dance floor until the end of the night-including grandparents!

Jeremy was an AMAZING DJ!!! He kept the dance floor busy the whole night. He never let the dance floor get empty and kept the crowd dancing into the wee hours of the night!!

Instant Request was great to work with for our wedding reception. They have a nice online planner where you can fill out all the information they need to know for your wedding day. Then they set up a call the week or two before to make sure they have everything they need and answer any questions you may have. They played great music to match to your tastes and knew to play stuff for the older crowd towards the beginning and leave the newer stuff for the younger crowd that stuck around longer during the reception.

Instant request was awesome to work with. They made everything very easy with their online event planner. Our DJ was great, did a good job of keeping the dancefloor busy. We also used them for uplighting. It made our reception look absolutely beautiful! They were even able to match lighting colors to a swatch from the bridesmaid dresses. I would definately recommend them to anyone.

our DJ called us a few days before the wedding to make sure that he was going to pronounce all of our wedding party's names right...we had a very specific NO COUNTRY rule, that he followed to a T. The dance floor was full all night and everyone kept commenting on how awesome the music was and what a great mix the DJ had going - awesome job! We also used a monogram light and some up lighting around the dance floor that looked fantastic!

The online planning tool Instant Request provides is great and incredibly thorough - we were able to be really specific with every detail of the night. The DJ that was chosen for us was a perfect fit and kept the party going well into the night. He checked in with us throughout the night to ensure we were happy and did a great job of keeping the night flowing on schedule.

I loved working with Instant Request! The online planner was so easy to work with and helped us personalize our reception. The actual day went exactly how we wanted it to and our DJ was fun, professional and kept our guests dancing until the last song!

Instant Request did a fabulous job at our wedding! Our DJ was Ryan LaRue--he kept everyone on the floor all night long! Highly recommended!

The uplighting and the gobo that were provided by Instant Request were great. We had different lighting colors for the different parts in the evening and it added so much! It was something that my husband requested that we have and I was on the fence about it. But I am soo glad that we did it. It added so much to the reception room!!

We chose Instant Request because they were MN Bride's top rated for more years than I have known my husband. The online event planner was SO helpful in not only planning the ceremony and reception music but the ceremony itself! The event planner has lists and lists of songs which really helped us come up with creative ideas that we may never have even thought of otherwise. As I said, we used Instant Request for both the ceremony and reception. Set up and tear down was (from my perspective) seamless. Our DJ was extremely punctual whenever his services were required (speeches, dedications, etc.). He called me ahead of time to go over the details, find out what I would like him to wear and make sure I didn't have any unanswered questions. Overall it was a GREAT experience and I would absolutely book them again. One note to those considering a DJ for their Twin Cities wedding - I found that DJs are pretty competitive in this area and was able to get the ceremony for free (usually $150) after a little negotiation and a mention of a competitor with a lower quote.

Shawn from Instant Request came up with using red uplighting in our venue and it looked SO great. He also had a custom GOBO made for us with our monogram and the Skyline that we used for the wedding. He and Russ at Linen Effects got together and had the GOBO shine from behind some draping and the look was incredible. We received SO many compliments! Any questions that I had, Shawn took the time to answer them and never made me feel like I was being a pain or bother. Lighting can change the entire look of a room and we are so glad that we went with Instant Request for our lighting.
The hot trend for this year is mood lighting!
Whether you envision soft, sensuous shades of amber sunset or blue glistening water ripples or something more intense like the infusion of deep luscious red or raspberry, we have the technical expertise to transform your venue. Contact us for your customized mood lighting quote.
