Wedding Tips – The big three to look for when hiring a wedding dj!

The most important factor when hiring a wedding dj is to look for someone that has experience. Now we are not talking about any type of dj experience; we are talking about specific wedding experience with satisfied brides. This is extremely important! How do you know if they have satisfied bride? Take a look at their website for positive testimonials. Also, you can always ask for some references from past brides and grooms. We have served well over a thousand satisfied brides over the years.

The second most important factor is the ability of the dj to act as a master of ceremonies. This includes much more than just making announcements. The wedding dj also has to be able to keep all the event of the wedding on track, and work with other vendors such as the photographer and the caterer so that everything is right on cue.

The third item in the big three is the ability of the dj to get your guests on the dance floor. This is accomplished by picking out the right music at the right time, and also by encouraging your guests to dance utilizing the microphone. This needs to be done in a classy fashion.

This information will surely help you pick the right wedding dj! Happy wedding planning!

How do your make your reception perfect? You have to hire a dj that pays attention to the details, and you must give him/her the essential details that they need to make your day great. One of the most overlooked aspects of the wedding reception is the dinner music. While the bride and groom are having their pictures taken after the ceremony, the guests are gathering inside the reception venue to mingle and listen to dinner music.

  1. Classical Music
  2. Love songs
  3. Jazz music
  4. Big Band
  5. Custom choices
