We all know that hiring a DJ is one of essentially two options when it comes to your wedding music, but what many forget to take into account is that when you hire a DJ for your wedding, you get much more than just music for your wedding. Here is a brief look at what your DJ will take care of, above simply providing music for your ceremony and/or reception.
First, of course, your DJ can offer a great deal of audio expertise on your wedding day. This means that your DJ will handle all of the necessary audio equipment setup, working with the venue to create the perfect acoustics for your wedding. You as the wedding couple won’t have to worry about a thing. A DJ’s audio expertise comes in handy especially when couples have special audio setup requests. If the happy couple wants to give a family member the opportunity to perform a song at the reception, for example, a DJ can help make that happen with the right equipment and setup. In short, when you hire a DJ, you can access all of the expertise and audio equipment you could need.
Many DJs deal with more than audio equipment—they can also create the right ambiance at your wedding with lighting and other special effects. At DJ How You Want It, for example, many of our packages include lighting setup and other special effects. This helps couples create exactly the ambiance they want for their wedding reception.
Want to make sure everything goes smoothly, according to plan, and on schedule at your reception? This can be tricky especially when there are first dances, cake cutting, and toasts involved. DJs, however, are also experienced emcees, which means that they can catch guests’ attention and keep things running according to schedule throughout your wedding. You and your guests, then, can simply sit back and enjoy the wedding!
Want your reception to be a hit? A DJ knows how to gauge a crowd and play the right music to get people dancing. And even if you know your reception won’t be heavy on dancing, a DJ can still handle requests and play the right music for the current pace of your reception. When you hire a DJ, you can rest assured that the music playing will always be perfect for that precise moment.
Because DJs so often work with other vendors, they are usually happy to work with you on finding other vendors if needed. So whether you’re still looking for a photographer, florist, or caterer, your DJ can give you some tried-and-true recommendations.
