Yes, a wedding DJ can truly make or break a wedding reception – which is why this is one of the most important decisions a couple can make when planning their special day. A great Wedding DJ is not only talented, but thoughtful, passionate, a good listener and conscientious as to the needs of the couple getting married, which is what it’s all about.
Here are 8 examples of what your wedding DJ MUST be:
1. A Great DJ Listens
A great wedding DJ will closely listen to your instructions and make sure he understands your vision. A Great DJ knows that this is one of the biggest day of your life, and that you’re trusting them with determining the flow of the day. A Great DJ will take the responsibility very seriously, always putting the needs of the couple first.
2. A Great DJ Pronounces The Names Right
A Professional DJ & Master of Ceremonies takes their responsibility of your formal announcements very seriously. With this, they make sure every name is pronounced correctly. They practice this and go over it with the couple in the weeks beforehand to make sure it’s perfect.
3. A Great DJ Plays YOUR Requested Music and Can Read Your Crowd
Your DJ should know that having your selected music prepared is paramount. Just as important is having a DJ that knows how to read a crowd and play to that crowd. If he or she doesn’t, the event could be a disaster.
4. A Great DJ Plans Ahead With The Venue
A great DJ always contacts the venue before the wedding day to secure all setup logistics when the doors open, where to park, where to bring in the equipment, any particular venue rules, etc.
5. A Great DJ Never Assumes
A great DJ never assumes. For example, the DJ will have exact directions to the venue beforehand. Also, a Great DJ will Arrive at least 2 hours before the contracted start time for set up.
6. A Great DJ Test Everything Ahead Of Time
Great DJs arrive at least a couple of hours before the event begins to unload equipment , set-up and test the sound system, which has been thoroughly tested prior to his arrival. Great DJs adjust sound levels, check microphones, and position speakers to take advantage of the room’s acoustics. Every location has it’s own distinctive acoustics, and a great DJ knows how to maximize this. If outdoors, great DJs adjust the sound according to layout, weather, etc.
Also a great DJ always has a backup system ready to go in case of equipment failure.
7. A Great DJ Is A Polished Professional
A Great DJ is always well dressed, well groomed, well rested, relaxed and in control. Again, this may seem obvious, but that’s not always the case. This comes with thoughtful preparation.
8. A Great DJ will Always Work & Plan Ahead With Others Vendors Involved
A Great DJ will always synchronize their efforts with those of the venue staff, wedding photographers, videographers and other involved to ensure a seamless flow among everyone during the entire event. A great DJ plans all events, announcements and timing weeks before the day of event. Also, a Great DJ plans for any unexpected delays or on the fly requests by the couple and/or the immediate family.
