A DJ can make or break your wedding reception. Hiring the right one will ensure that your party runs smoothly and that your guests have an amazing time, but hiring the wrong one can be disastrous to both you and your guests. To help you avoid this, here are 5 reasons why you should hire a wedding DJ, and what to look out for when hiring one.


1) The Tech Will Hold Up

Most pro audio gear these days is well built, but there’s always an element of risk when renting equipment for your big day. Damp weather, rowdy guests and other factors can put undue stress on audio systems and cause them to fail. With our professional disc jockeys, there’s no worry about equipment failure – we handle it all. When you book us, we provide every piece of equipment necessary to make your wedding perfect. This means you get to relax and enjoy your special day without any concerns over how things will sound or operate at critical moments. We do all that for you!


2) A Pro Knows All the Tricks

If you’re just starting to learn about disc jockeying, you might be worried that your friends and family won’t get into it. A seasoned pro knows all of the tricks and will be able to tailor his or her music selection to match every person in attendance. You can rest assured that no one will walk away disappointed. DJs also have extensive experience making announcements in public—so they’ll know how to work a microphone during your reception without feeling awkward or stalling things out. As an added bonus, their public speaking chops means that they can emcee your entire event without having to awkwardly cut off speeches (or drag them on forever).


3) A Wedding DJ Can Do Much More Than Just Play Music

A good wedding DJ not only will play music that keeps your guests dancing all night long, but they can also keep them informed and entertained. If you have scheduled certain events throughout your reception (such as first dances, cake cutting, bouquet toss), it is important to let your guests know when these events are coming up. Your DJ can make announcements over the microphone and ensure that everyone is aware of what’s going on so they don’t miss anything. A skilled DJ will even talk with you ahead of time to come up with ideas for fun entertainment throughout your reception.


4) Hiring a Professional Gives You Peace of Mind

To most people, weddings are events they’ll never forget. There’s great pressure to get it right, which is why hiring a professional makes sense. A live band or DJ doesn’t just provide entertainment; their job is to make sure everything runs smoothly on your big day. Whether it’s scheduling or managing a second-line parade, taking care of last-minute issues like replacing lost items or making sure all your guests have had something to eat, they can deal with anything so that you don’t have to worry about anything other than getting married!


5) An Experienced Wedding DJ Is an Investment in Your Big Day

It’s not always easy to picture your wedding day. You and your partner don’t know what will come up with just hours before you head down that aisle and begin your married life. What happens if it rains? Will everyone show up? Will something go wrong? Will anyone have fun at all? Though it’s impossible to predict everything that will happen, one thing is certain: hiring an experienced wedding DJ is an investment in your big day.
