Do you remember that wedding you attended 6 years ago that had a mediocre band playing for the reception? No?

How about that night to remember 10 years ago at your best friend’s wedding where the DJ was totally in tune with the crowd and everyone was on their feet kicking it all night long?

That one rings some bells?

There’s a good reason for that. Learn here about how hiring a professional DJ can make your event memorable.

Music Is Memorable

For some reason, our brains seem to be hardwired to remember music. You may not have heard one of your favourite songs in 5 years, but when it suddenly comes on the radio you can sing it without missing a beat.

Additionally, songs are like smells. When you hear a song that was playing when your high school ex dumped you, unfortunately, it takes you right back to that moment.

The same goes for positive experiences like your wedding. The right music can make your event memorable.

However, the right music is often hard to pick out ahead of time because every crowd is a little different. A DJ has more flexibility with this than a band and can tailor the song choices to fit the vibe of the crowd.

Help with the Flow and Energy

Have you ever been to a wedding where they just awkwardly cut the music that was playing on someone’s iPod when it was time for the best man to give his speech? It was a super awkward transition and stuck out like a sore thumb, right? Or maybe the bride’s cousin Jimmy tried to help by grabbing the mic and making a complete fool out of himself.

The night turned out to be memorable — but not in a good way.

When you hire a DJ for your wedding, you don’t have these problems. The DJ will be your emcee for the night. They’ll seamlessly draw the crowd’s attention to important events like cutting the cake, or tossing the bouquet or garter. And, rest assured, there won’t be a weird awkward pause in the music when they do it.

They’ll also keep up the energy throughout the evening by choosing songs that fit the crowd’s changing mood. Many DJs encourage requests to help them get a feel for what the particular crowd enjoys. Most will also request a song list from the couple beforehand to get an idea of what the couple themselves is expecting.
