Your music and entertainment are an important part of your wedding. You may not use it much for your ceremony, but at the reception, it is a necessity. At that point, your wedding becomes a party with eating, drinking, chatting, and dancing.
You need the right kind of DJ to handle the entertainment aspect of your wedding. To get the right person, there are a few steps to take. One of those is doing research and asking the right questions. The following tips will help you hire the best wedding DJ in South Carolina and have an amazing wedding.
Hire A DJ With Experience
You want a DJ who has played at weddings and other events for quite a while. They’ll be the real performer who knows what to do to get your party started. They’ll also be original and able to entertain your crowd quite easily. You don’t want someone who just got a second-hand sound system and has put together a few cheesy playlists.
Here at Ray Wedding Services, we have more than two decades of DJ experience. And not just for weddings, we’ve handled birthdays and corporate events too. We‘ll know exactly how to treat you and your guests right.
They Should Also Have Charisma and The Right Energy
You need a DJ with energy to get the guests at your wedding dancing. It’s more than just good music. When it comes to things like this, their energy matters too. They should be able to keep the atmosphere jolly, join in the fun, and get everyone pumped up. This they can only do by having great crowd interaction skills.
They Should Have A High-Quality System
Make sure you discuss with your DJ about the equipment they’ll be coming to your wedding with. You have to make sure it’s compatible with your venue and of high quality. Backup equipment is also another necessity.
What happens if the power at your venue goes off? Or if your DJ’s laptop crashes? Do they have a backup generator and laptop to keep the party going? Make sure these requirements are met as they are very important.
Have Them Visit Your Reception Venue
This is called a venue overview and is an important part of your wedding entertainment planning. Your DJ should pay a visit to the venue and meet up with your other entertainment and lighting vendors too, if necessary. If they’re already familiar with the venue that’s a huge plus. They can also carry out a song check before, to ensure that everything works.
Discuss Your Wedding Playlist
Micromanaging your wedding DJ would not be the best for you. Trust them to do the right thing at your event. That being said, it’s also okay to let them know some special songs that you love and want to hear. If there’s a song with bad memories that you’d want to avoid listening to at your event, let them know too.
Discuss Extra services
Sometimes wedding DJs also have extra services which could help to make your wedding entertainment even better. For example, we have a mirror photo booth here at Ray Wedding Services.
This state-of-the-art, touch screen technology is a lovely addition to weddings, birthdays, and other events. It’ll help to make your event more entertaining, engaging, and spectacular and comes at an extra cost that is worth it. Make sure you talk to us about it.
Deal with Some Other Details
Some of these include things like when to play your first dance song. You can also discuss the songs for the parent-child dances. They’ll need to know when it’s time for the cake cutting and bouquet toss so that they can start playing the party mix.
Letting your wedding DJ know your timeline will help him plan your wedding entertainment around it. You can also discuss things like extra equipment that may be needed, payments, and dress-code. He has to, in addition to having the right music, dress well for your occasion.
