If you’re hiring a DJ (which is the case with a majority of South Asia weddings) then you won’t need any AV equipment from the venue. The DJ will bring their power drops, lighting, equipment etc.
If a band is performing at your wedding reception or any other event, then there will be some additional costs for the power drop. Prices vary by venue but you can expect at least $300.
The City National Grove of Anaheim and Seven Degrees are two non-hotel venues
with built-in lighting and screens that you can customize for your events. Learn more about them on ShaadiShop.
