A Night to Remember
Your wedding day has finally arrived. You’ve walked down the aisle, said your vows and smiled for the camera enough to make your cheeks hurt. Dinner has been served, the most heartfelt speeches have been shared and your first dance was everything you imagined it would be. But now that the formalities are through, it’s time for the party to begin! Time for the DJ to get everyone on the dance floor and make sure they have a night to remember.
Now tell us, what do you see?
Because when it comes to entertainment and hiring a DJ that is the moment you need to imagine. That is the atmosphere you want them to create.
Why are some DJ companies so expensive? My friend knows a guy who will DJ my wedding for $500?
We’ve all heard the saying, “you get what you pay for”, and it applies to your wedding entertainment as well. Your average $500 DJ is someone who asks for the date, time & location and just shows up. There is no sit down before the event and no selecting your music because it’s all pre-recorded on an iPod. He’ll bring two speakers (that he keeps in his basement) and be ready to go in under 10 minutes. Just hope he doesn’t get sick (or get a better paying gig), because he’s just might not show up. Ask your venue how many times that has happened over the years.
However, a professional DJ company will be with you every step of the way. A deposit is required with a signed contract detailing your event. You’ll meet at the venue or their office where you’ll discuss music selection, lighting and special effects so they know what type of party to arrange. Your DJ will be selected from their roster based on language preference, music genre, location, etc. They’ll be familiar with your venue to ensure a smooth set up and liability insurance will be provided. You’ll find plenty of reviews online and through social media. They own state-of-the-art equipment and are the in-house AV provider for many venues. They offer DJs, MCs and live entertainment such as violinists, aerialists, and saxophonists to compliment your evening. But most importantly, they’re able to read a crowd. They know how to get people out of their seats and onto the dance floor.
So image your special day right up to the moment that the party begins and make sure you choose a DJ company who can give your guests a night to remember.
