When attending a wedding the first thing we think about, as a guest, is the entertainment, viewing such a celebration as an opportunity to let our hair down and make the most of what is on offer. This is why a great DJ is a must at a wedding, seeing that all guests enjoy the full wedding experience.
Where there is a trend to just have music on in the background for small affairs the larger weddings of the world require drama, needing a big stage with a DJ to get the crowd going. If you are in the process of planning your upcoming wedding then it is essential that you think carefully before booking a DJ, with such hire options responsible for setting the tone of a celebration.
Below you will find a few tips of how to find the best DJ for your big day.
Nowadays most weddings run with a unique theme, a personality that makes the celebration rather unique. Popular wedding themes for 2016 are vintage, modern, classic, Moroccan, Indian and much more. If going all out on your big day then you will want the DJ to mirror this theme, showing guests that you have successfully executed a well thought out wedding day.
For example, if you are running with an all-Indian vibe you will want the playlist to reflect that, incorporating Asian-inspired tracks into the DJ’s repertoire. This is why you need a DJ that is open-minded, welcoming ideas and singing to the tune of your hymn sheet.
Although we hate to admit it money dictates pretty much everything, a statement that rings true in relation to wedding planning. With regards to entertainment it is true that you get what you pay for, however, it is important that you are not stung by extortionate, unjustified hire rates.
