So what does a wedding DJ do?
He just pushes buttons right?
He make puts on a tuxedo and makes announcements right?
Well that might be part of it, but there are many behind the scenes tasks a wedding DJ needs to take care of. The more experience the DJ has the more they take care of, I’ll explain.
A new DJ will set up basic equipment, hopefully make introductions on time. Tell people it’s time for dinner then play dance music the rest of the night.
An experienced Wedding DJ will have a quality sound system, wireless microphone, digital sound library and the correct versions of the bride and grooms song selections ready. They will also be in direct contact with the banquet manager to make sure the timing for serving dinner is on schedule. The DJ might have to stall and give the hall an extra 10 minutes to pour champagne. Otherwise nobody, including the bride and groom will not have anything to toast with.
Having perfect timing is crucial. Imagine you starting the first dance right when the dessert is being served and the wait staff is walking all over the dancefloor and clanking spoons and dishes. Or they are still clearing plates during uncle Jack’s touching toast. It’s something to be very aware of.
The Wedding DJ is the guy or gal who will run almost everything at the wedding reception. The florist, the photographer and even the banquet manager will not do this. It’s 100% up to the DJ to get the bridal party lined up in the correct order with the correct names at the correct time.
These are just a few of the things experienced wedding DJ’s take care of. The bride and groom will not even know you are doing them, they will just notice that the wedding day ran very smooth.
Do your research and find the right company that has the experience and the skills.
