This kind of entertainment is possible only with a professional DJ.
But then you, stop and worry about the costs.
Professional DJs are not cheap. The reason, they provide quality service and they also need to sustain their business in the long term.
Here’s the top 5 reasons why hiring a professional DJ on you wedding is important.
A professional DJ comes prepared.
Invest on high quality PA systems and back up. You’d want your music to sound just right about the mood and felt in every vibration.
Your DJ also need to account for backups. One PA system is not enough.
Amateurs are less invested in their performance than a wedding professional.
Amateurs do it for fun, and if something blows up, they tend to ignore and let it slide. The reason, they operate as a hobby and unmindful of business impacts.
As opposed to a professional DJ with proven career track in the entertainment industry and treats the same as a livelihood. A professional DJ banks on reputation and steady income stream for growth, so compromised performance is non negotiable for him. A bad review goes a long way in an industry where reputation management is a high risk.
It is your big day, as such you would want someone who will be there to do performance level presentation and handling of your entertainment. You’d want someone who is professionally dressed and prepared for the day.
A professional wedding DJ accounts for unforeseen events that could impact event timelines.
A professional DJ will see to it that all details before the wedding are up to date. Say for example when booking and preparing for the event, the bride and groom intentionally planned for a moment with their dearest caregivers, and wanted a song dedicated or a dance song played in their honor. A week before the event the caregiver passes. A timely update made by the parties, but the amateur DJ was unmindful of the same. The wedding day came and a moment intended to honor the living became a moment of sorrow, because the DJ announced the dedication,after forgetting to update his notes.
A professional wedding DJ will account all these possibilities and take every moment leading to your wedding to know the details. A professional wedding DJ understand how important your wedding day is and how it should be celebrated outside unforeseen family events.
A professional DJ profiles the crowd and responds to what they want on the dancefloor.
DJ Entertainment goes beyond playing music or ensuring the crowd is dancing to the best tunes. A well-experienced DJ has the ability to read the crowd and respond accordingly to the vibe of the current event.
He takes in the role to professionally and effectively keep the guests busy and entertained at all times. He needs to keep the momentum going and the party never stopping. Playing the right songs at the right time and filling the gap as needed to maximise the dancefloor, even when the mood changes.
Dead airs are big no – no for experienced wedding DJs. It frustrates the crowd and dulls the reception.
We’ve heard some bride and groom, when quoted that services are pretty expensive and they would just go with a spotify list and a speaker or worst go with a friend who has “experienced” DJing for other friends.
An amateur DJ can play the songs you request, but lacks the experience necessary to make it work.
Imagine your DJ playing an unedited version of Sexxy Back during dinner gives five minutes of dead air while queuing up the next song.
Are you willing to sacrifice the fun at your wedding to save money on a cheaper DJ?
A Professional DJ sets the events in motion in a flawless manner
A wedding event becomes unique only when the suppliers and organizers are able to maintain that level of professionalism that only a specialist can deliver to provide a smooth, flawless ceremony and reception services.
A professional DJ is responsible to timely coordination of your event times. They provide ensure that there is a smooth flow of events and if need be, take care of part introductions. The DJ is the guest manager once everyone is on the reception.
Your wedding DJ ensures the house is in order. They make the announcements and provide information about the venue both for security and entertainment purposes.
A professional DJ understands the value of investing in high quality PA system for professional use.
DJs who charge less invest less into their equipment, which means you have inferior sound and performance at your wedding.
There are dedicated professional speakers and equipment that are necessary for clear sound that has an impact at low volumes, in order for your guests to speak at the tables even while the dance floor is thumping.
If you want your guests to clearly hear your exchange of vows at the ceremony, you’ll need professional equipment and an onsite tech to make sure that happens.
Imagine a DJ showing up without any equipment because he intended to use the venues sound systems, without confirming the same.
Your wedding day only happens once; make sure you hire a DJ who gets it right.
