There are many benefits to having an experienced wedding DJ host and run your wedding day. There are many decisions to make when you have a wedding to plan for, but picking a DJ is one of the top on the list! DJ's have a large task as part of the wedding day, and as such, the wedding couple wants to make sure they pick the perfect DJ for their wedding day! Lets take a deeper dive into why an experienced wedding DJ is an important and essential need for the wedding day.
1. Handle Unexpected Events
With everything that goes into a wedding day, it is inevitable that something may fall out of place or not go as expected on the big day! Having an experienced wedding DJ will allow these events to be glossed over and not even noticed by the guests because they will know how to distract, correct, and move forward without skipping a step. This is because an experienced DJ has the confidence to be able to handle these situations. They may have already handled a similar situation in past experience. Without a DJ that has the experience that knows how to handle these types of disruptions on a wedding day, it could turn into experiences and memories that you don't want to remember happened on your big wedding day!
2. Keeping the Guests Engaged
On a wedding day, of course the wedding couple wants to have fun, but they also want their guests, friends, and family to have a good time as well! Sometimes with all the events like cake cutting, garter tosses, and bouquet tosses, guests can lose the attention of what is going on. It is the wedding DJ's job to keep the guests engaged all throughout the night. An experienced DJ knows how to keep the guests attention, re-engage the guests, and have them having fun all night long! Without the experience of a DJ who has run multiple weddings before, they may not have the expertise and confidence to keep the guests attention and having fun all night long!
3. Keeping the Flow of the Day
The wedding couple has an image and vision of what they want their wedding day to look and feel like. An experienced wedding DJ is able to not only understand what their vision and image is, but they know how to capture and execute on creating this image for their couples. They know how to create an atmosphere that is exactly what the couple explained to them and bring it to life. Without the expertise of an experienced wedding DJ, they may not have the ability to make the vision a reality and come up short of their expectations.
4. Bringing the Energy
Energy and atmosphere on the wedding day is essential, and it is the DJ's job to bring this energy to life! Have you ever been to a wedding where no one is dancing, no one wants to be the first one on the dance floor, or everyone is sitting in their seats? It is the DJ's job to make sure the guests can't stay in their seats because they want to dance all night long! An experience DJ will know how to keep the energy and entertainment up all night long and have the wedding guests leaving the night talking about how much fun they had at your wedding for years to come!
The wedding playlist is very important! Without a proper playlist, the guests won't be able to dance and enjoy the night. An experienced DJ knows how to flow a playlist so it doesn't seem like random songs are played. It is important that the music flows and makes sense. A professional and experienced DJ knows the right way to put a playlist together so that the guests and the wedding couple are thrilled with the music choices all the way through the night!
Having an experienced wedding DJ is a very important and necessary aspect of hiring a wedding DJ. Without the right expertise, wedding DJ's may not be ready to handle certain aspects of a wedding, not be able to make quick decisions, or react quickly to certain occurrences throughout the wedding day.
