One of the biggest regrets of many married couples is the amount of money they spent on their wedding receptions. In some cases, it takes several years before they are able to pay it all off, thereby limiting their ability to start a family right away or engage in fun activities they love but can no longer afford. It should come as no surprise then that backyard weddings complete with DIY decorations and family members for caterers are fast becoming the norm for those looking to coordinate their wedding on the cheap. However, when it comes to entertainment, spending a bit more can actually save you big money overall. Here’s how:
The foundations of great wedding entertainment begin with great music that keeps everyone out on the dance floor, an emcee who knows how to engage your guests, making them laugh and encouraging them to participate in all activities, and an atmosphere that feels as light and fun as it is visually entertaining for everyone in attendance. That’s why hiring a professional wedding DJ is such a brilliant option.
Far beyond spinning great tunes, modern wedding DJs possess a great many skills and are capable of delivering specialty services previously only provided by separate business entities. Demand for multilingual DJs, with the ability to adlib narration for video and slideshow presentations and coordinate dance contests and other activities on a moment’s notice, is steadily increasing along with the desire for uplighting that compliments the overall décor and sophistication of a reception while maintaining a relaxed, party atmosphere. In addition, DJs providing photo booths for guests to capture and take home their own unique memories has recently grown in popularity.
While its true the more skills a DJ possesses and the more services they can provide, the more they can charge wedding coordinators for their performances, bundling all of their services into one complete entertainment package will drastically cut the cost of hiring separate businesses to take care of each item, thereby allowing brides and grooms to provide more entertainment for their guests at a fraction of the cost.
When you pay more for a DJ, you’re more likely to hire one with a longer history of experience and better reviews. Often, these DJs are represented by renowned talent agencies whose clients demand nothing but the best. You’ll be able to rely on them throughout the entire coordinating process and feel confident that all of your guests will be thoroughly entertained throughout your whole reception.
Rest assured, only the most talented, well-equipped and reliable DJs can demand higher fees. Book your DJ through a reliable service like 1-800-DISC JOCKEY and you’re sure to get the most entertainment value for your money!
