It’s 2023! You’re about to get married! Here are some thoughtful tips from our DJ department that can not only make your wedding more fun, but can help us make your day as smooth as silk!
#1 You know how some of the music we like to listen to just isn’t really dance music? Well guess what!? There are other parts of the wedding where that music has a home! Consider incorporating your unique music taste during cocktail hour, dinner, and even your ceremony. Dare to be different and let your guests know whose day it is!
#2 We know crowds, but you know your crowd. Let’s work together to keep that dance floor packed! Tell us what your friends and family will dance to and let us fill in the blanks. We can weave your favorite songs into a set that makes musical sense. A dance floor is a living, breathing thing and it needs constant care to thrive! Bring your dancing shoes and we’ll make sure you use them!
#3 Is your DJ providing sound for your ceremony? Excellent! We’re happy to do so – but we need a work surface! Most DJs are bringing a computer and microphone transmitter so make sure you’ve informed your venue that we need a small table in your ceremony area. A little cocktail table is fine. This will just make the process quicker and easier for everyone.
#4 I want my ceremony in a beautiful field but there’s no electricity! Fear not! We have a couple completely wireless speaker systems. We can provide music and a microphone in that beautiful field. No strings (or wires) attached! These are only to be used in situations where there are no other electricity options. Electricity is always the preferred and most reliable route!
#5 Don’t sleep on uplighting! Uplighting can enhance most venues. Hey, some venues shouldn’t be messed with. We get it! But if your venue is a blank cavas that is begging for some warmth and color, uplighting can help. It allows the venue to turn the house lights WAY down during dancing, while still creating an inviting environment for you and your guests. In most cases, your DJ is the one bringing the lights so you only have to deal with one person, making your planning process that much easier!
