Wedding DJ Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding
1 For a wedding, keep in mind that your guests are going to be where the couple is. If you’re on the dance floor, your guests will be too!
2 Don’t micromanage the timeline. We do need the order of events but not necessarily the exact time for each.
3 If there are older guests, try not to sit them close or right in front of the speaker(s).
4 Don’t put the DJ in an obscure location such as upstairs in a loft or in a corner! The DJ needs to be easily visible and near the dance floor so they can see it to get a feel for the crowd. You also have better guest interaction when the DJ is on the same level. Guests tend to respond faster when they can see the DJ when making announcements.
5 If you have dance floor lighting, keep in mind that darker is better. Use dimmers for chandeliers, cafe lighting, etc.
6 If you have a bar or photo booth at the event, please put it in the main room where the DJ is. You always want to keep people near the dance floor at all times. When guests go to another room they are less likely to come back to the dance floor.
7 When picking your songs for your event, take into account not only your taste but also your guest’s as well.
8 You always want to leave your guests wanting more. Pick a great “Encore” song after your Last Dance!
9 When picking your music, you are welcome to customize your play list but you don’t have to overdo it. Pick about 20-30 or so songs you like and a few you don’t, and let us fill in from there.
10 If you have to cut corners on your budget, don’t skimp on your entertainment—it can make or break your event! Your wedding is a big investment! You have a lot of time and money invested in planning, your venue and all of your other vendors. You want to make it a Fun and Memorable event that all of your guests will be raving about long after your Last dance!
