Jared Wade Entertainment
Wedding Investment Details


Avon Gardens

First of all, let me say congratulations on  your upcoming wedding!  
Secondly. I AM available for your big day!  Avon Gardens is an awesome location, and I would be more than happy to speak with you in greater detail about what I do as a Professional Event Host, MC and DJ.  I actually offer special pricing for Avon Gardens couples.  I do NOT offer this pricing to ANY other Professional Wedding Venue in Indianapolis or the surrounding area.  You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for personalization, creative ideas, and fun because my service offerings go far beyond the music!  After you read through this, let’s set a time to meet at  my office to discuss your big day in greater detail.


Sara & Joshua Gainey

"DJ or Wedding -Coordinator?! 
My husband, I and all of our family LOVED Jared!

Not only is he very well organized, caring, comforting and on TOP of all he's doing, he pretty much gave us more "help along the way", when it came to planning our big day, as the people from our wedding venue did!

We'd recommend Jared as a professional DJ
and Person!

You can not afford, not to afford him!"

What makes Jared Wade Entertainment different from everyone else?


1: Training

I take a great amount of time to learn, grow and educate myself in new trends and evolving myself as weddings evolve.  I do that through continual training online and in person, with in and out of state training.
Sometimes I am teaching, and sometimes I am the student, but I am always learning.


2: Planning

My cloud based planning suite is available to you from day 1.  You will be able to log in and start planning your big day from the get go, and you'll be able to do it from any phone, tablet, laptop, desktop or even through my official mobile app... available on Android and Apple devices.  This is just a tool though.  You will still gain access to me DIRECTLY, and not through an office manager because this is my full time career.  


3: Master of Ceremonies

Relax as your MC, me {smile}, with 14 years of experience and training, creates the magic of your reception by taking your guests through an evening of fun, creativity and personalization, all about YOU!  You also receive the best when it comes to having the right person behind the microphone.  I have created, and specialize in a Hosting and Communication style called Structured Conversationalism®.  It's a style that focuses on merging the audience and VIPs together in an engaging process.  What this does for you, is your guests feel more welcomed and want to stay longer.  What it does for them, is create a warm enviroment where, when they leave, they leave happy with positive things to  say about your wedding celebration!!

4: Time

It sound silly to some, but most DJs glance over your wedding the day before, or even the morning of.  Not me.  I dedicate 30-40 hours of planning and preparation time to make sure that everything I am taking care of is perfect and ready for you and your guests.  This time is on TOP of the hours your hire me for.  
It takes time to write those scripts and love stories my friend.  To do it right that is. :-)


Margaret & Ryan Gooley

"Jared deserves 10 stars! He is by far the best DJ you could possibly ask for. He made both me and my fiance feel very relaxed through the entire planning process and helped keep us on track. He made sure all of our guests were having a great time and his passion for his craft really shows. If you are looking for the perfect wedding DJ this is where you should be. No need to look anywhere else."

Cocktail Hour Speaker

Sometimes additional speakers are needed to fill the spaces where Cocktail Hour will be held at.  This isn't a problem at all for my QSC K8® Speakers!  They have a wide dispersion that allows for a large group to clearly hear them, even when they are far away.  This is the same brand and type of speaker that I use for my Ceremonies, and receive nothing but kind compliments about the sound!  I can bring as many that are needed, but normally for a Cocktail Hour, 1-2 are normally more than enough.  I will also bring a small MP3 player loaded up with your style of music choice for everyone to listen to. 

- 1 QSC K8® Speaker
- 1 Speaker Stand + Cabling
- 1 MP3 Player with music
- All set up and tear down is included

$160.00 (per speaker)


Rehearsal Dinner Service

The Rehearsal Dinner Service brings together 3 elements for your enjoyment

1: Ceremony Rehearsal
2: Rehearsal Entertainment
3: Recap For Bridal Party

All three of these elements are highly encouraged for all weddings.  Also, this is your pre-party for your wedding!  Wouldn't you prefer to sit back, relax, laugh and actually ENJOY your friends and family?  Rehearsal Dinner services are by far one of the most asked about, and most enjoyed out of all my offered services.  More information on Rehearsal Dinner Services can be found at http://jaredwadeentertainment.com/rehearsal-dinner/ 

$625!  (This does require my availability the day of your rehearsal, so booking sooner vs later is encouraged)


Cortne & Bill Gander

"We are so glad we hired Jared to host our June rehearsal, ceremony and wedding reception! He was extremely professional, very organized and very easy to get in contact with, which I think is a huge key when working with any vendor. He met with us several times and his website was a huge plus in regards to planning.

We hired Jared for our rehearsal (ceremony and dinner) which I highly recommend to any bride and groom. Jared being present for the ceremony rehearsal eased our minds regarding how the actual wedding day would play out. When he mentioned that he could host our dinner and provide entertainment in the form of trivia, we were extremely excited. Our friends and family really enjoyed our rehearsal dinner since it was unique and interactive.

We had a laid back wedding, to which Jared was completely amenable and I fully believe he listens to all his clients and their expectations and makes it their event. Our ceremony and reception went wonderfully and we cannot thank Jared enough!!"
