Choosing Your Wedding DJ

Hiring a wedding DJ is a great idea if you want a fabulous selection of music at your reception and keep your guests entertained all evening!

Dancing the night away with your friends and family is a wonderful way to end your wedding day. But perhaps you are wondering whether to hire a live band or a DJ? Having a DJ at your wedding has many advantages. Bands can sometimes be more expensive depending on how many band members there are and depending on their style they may not be able to play all your favourite songs.

Music is an important part of every wedding reception. It sets the mood of your event and entertains your guests. When replaying the evening in your mind afterwards, it will give you something to hold on to, and bring back all those emotions you felt. Sometimes the right song played at the right time can create magic in the air and you remember those moments for the rest of your lives.

Experienced wedding DJs know how to make a selection of songs appealing to everyone at your reception regardless of their age. From old classics to the latest popular tunes and maybe even some quirky and funny songs, they can create a mix that will satisfy any generation. Since a professional DJ has access to songs which may not be available to the general public, you can even hear some exclusive tunes.

And while your mind might be occupied with other things on that special day, keep in mind that majority of your wedding guests will be focused on food and entertainment, so give them an experience they will remember.

Before you book a DJ, make sure that you do your research first. Find a company that is respectable and specialises in wedding entertainment. It is also very important to see your DJ in action before the big day, and ask if there is a sufficient replacement in case he or she are ill or for some other reason can’t attend your wedding. And if the DJ’s attire is important to you, check what kind of outfit they are planning to wear. It is highly advisable to arrange a consultation and discuss your wedding day with your DJ. Let them know about your wedding day schedule and show them the list of songs you would like them to play at the wedding reception.
