Why You Should Hire a Professional DJ
By Seth Kravitz with Rhythm of Love
When it comes to your wedding day, you shouldn’t be worried about playlists and audio equipment, leave that to the experts! Here are a few reasons why hiring a professional DJ will have you feeling completely relaxed as you bust a move on the dancefloor!
MASTER OF CEREMONIES
One of the main responsibilities of your wedding DJ is to act as your Master of Ceremonies, or MC. Making announcements and introductions and keeping the evening flowing is important to make your special day successful. A master of their craft has the ability to seamlessly transition from each part of the evening to the next. Whether it is introducing the wedding party into the reception, transitioning between dances, or getting the party started…having the right DJ will make sure your day is a huge success!
DAY OF COORDINATION
You want a DJ who does so much more than just play music! You want one who will act as an assistant day of coordinator and work closely with your other vendors to tackle any issues that may arise. Since music is the cue for everything when a DJ presses play things happen. Working closely with your photographer, your DJ can make sure they don’t miss a thing and capture your day perfectly! When all your vendors come together as one amazing team, you know you’re going to have the best wedding day ever!
A professional wedding DJ’s job is to get to know you and your style of music. When the time comes the DJ will be able to survey the room and know the exact songs to get everyone on the dance floor. Knowing the classics is important, but so is keeping up with current music and trends. Having a DJ who is able to read a crowd is what should be your top priority when doing your search. Just because someone is an amazing DJ does not mean they’ll be a good fit for your wedding. There is a special talent required for reading a room when the ages range from children to grandparents. A professional wedding DJ will make all the difference!
PROFESSIONAL QUALITY EQUIPMENT
One of the main determining factors of how much your DJ will charge, other than experience, is the quality of the equipment they provide. Will they have multiple speaker setups for multiple locations? Can they provide sound for your ceremony no matter where the location? Do they have multiple microphones for you and for additional readers? What about wireless microphones? Having multiple wireless microphones will help to keep your ceremony and evening feeling classy, so you don’t have any microphone or microphone stands in any photos. This is especially important during the ceremony where you want your DJ to fade into the background so your guests can focus on what they came for…to see you get married!
