When it comes to weddings, one of the important aspects is the planning of the entertainment. It is important not to underestimate the effect of the music on a ceremony and reception. The right music is essential in order to create an appropriate backdrop and the desired tone for your event. Experienced DJ hire offers you a diverse selection, authentic versions of songs, better volume control and for usually a much lower cost than a band. For weddings, DJ entertainment would provide the following benefits:
Musical Variety: Often the choice will be between a band and a DJ. As DJs can normally offer greater musical diversity than a band, they are more likely to give all of your guests an amazing time, as an experienced DJ will play music which appeals to all of your guests, whatever their generation or favourite genre.
Special announcements during your wedding: The DJ can also act as an accomplished Master of Ceremonies, who can announce and host the specialist activities during the day and evening reception. That is the reason many couples look for a professional wedding DJ, who can pause or stop the music without creating any awkwardness during the event.
Different genres of music: Experienced DJs can read the dance floor and mood of your guests and respond very quickly with music to entertain everyone. Providing floor filling classic hits which you and your guests will love and keep your dance floor moving all night. They will have a wide selection of music and can quickly move between genres, and switch seamlessly should your crowd be more Kylie than Kasabian (or vice versa).
No breaks: Bands will have to take breaks, sometimes every 60-90 minutes, which causes a break in the momentum of the evening. However this is not an issue when you opt for DJ hire. Your DJ can entertain non-stop for up to 8 hours. There is no break in the entertainment and no loss of momentum for your dancing and partying guests.
Each form of entertainment has their benefits, but a wedding DJ can be the best form of entertainment for a wedding reception. Rather than having a set play list, sticking to one genre or covers of other music, a DJ has a vast variety of music and can switch between types at the touch of a button.
You can be guaranteed a perfect night of celebration when you choose the best DJ. Always check their wedding DJ experience, and a good DJ will be more than happy to discuss your musical tastes and vision for the evening with you. You can give him a playlist of your favourite songs, and of course also any that ‘must not’ be played.
