Weddings are our specialty! Not every DJ is good at executing a complex wedding format. It takes a special understanding to make things flow smoothly and to understand the special needs of the bride and groom. It is important that the DJ keeps the bride and groom (or wedding planner) informed, but not become a pest. You want to keep things moving quickly, but not so much that the bride and groom feel like they’re being rushed through it all. If the DJ does not take the lead and get to the next itinerary item, you’ll find that the evening will drag, you will have guests leave early, and you’ll get to the end of the night and feel like you didn’t have hardly any time to dance and have fun.
A good wedding disc-jockey also needs to be extremely flexible. At any time, the smallest issue can throw a wrench in the plans, and a good DJ needs to know how to adjust. You don’t announce the toast for the bride and groom without first making sure the best man is in the room. If you come out of a song, announce the toast, but then spend five minutes looking for the person that is going to MAKE the toast, it is extremely unprofessional. Another key is that the DJ must be in constant contact with the photographer. You are playing a lot of money for a photographer’s services and the pictures that you are going to have for a lifetime, so it is critical that the DJ communicates to the photographer what is happening next and make sure he is prepared. You don’t want to make that special announcement and introduce the grandparent’s special 55th anniversary dance, have some tears shed, and THEN realize that the photographer was changing his film.
