Many engaged couples have a hard time deciding how to handle music for their wedding receptions. And while hiring a band, hiring a DJ, and DIYing your music are all options for wedding music, here are some unique advantages that come with hiring a DJ for your big day.
DJs are music experts.
Music truly sets the ambiance for a wedding, and a DJ can prepare the best possible setlist for your own. A DJ knows how to use music to set a mood and how to create smooth transitions from one song to the next. Moreover, a DJ knows how to gauge a crowd and select tracks accordingly. You might have a few songs in mind that you think are great dance songs, for example, but a DJ can ultimately tell you whether or not those songs will encourage people to hit the dance floor.
DJs can cater to your music requests.
Unlike a band, which knows how to perform only a limited number of songs, a DJ has an extremely vast repertoire of music. A DJ can handle just about any music request you have for them. You get to hear your favorite music from the original artists, and your DJ can make music suggestions when you specify a favorite genre.
DJs are also audio experts.
DJs are experts at setting up audio equipment and at working with venues to create the ideal setup for an event setting. With a DJ, you don’t have to worry about gathering the right equipment or having wedding guests set up the equipment the day of your wedding. Plus, if you have special audio setup needs—such as wanting to have someone perform a song at the reception—your DJ can create the audio setup necessary to make that happen.
A DJ can emcee your wedding.
Because the typical DJ audio setup for a wedding includes microphone access, a DJ can also emcee your wedding and reception. This is great for keeping things running smoothly while allowing your guests to enjoy the party.
A DJ is more affordable.
DJs are known to be more affordable than bands when it comes to wedding music. And while you could definitely save a little money by handling the music at your wedding yourself, the convenience you get and the headache you avoid can really make hiring a DJ well worth it!
