Wedding DJ or Band? There are definitely benefits to both alternatives, but also for a lot of weddings, hiring a professional DJ is a far better choice. Below are a few of the best needs to work with a DJ for your wedding:.
Affordability – Since you are only paying for one person to provide all of your musical entertainment, it stands to reason that you would be spending a whole lot less on a DJ than you would an entire band. But what you may not know is that no matter where you live or how small your budget, you can find a fantastic wedding DJ at a price you can afford thanks to the vast pool of talent available at popular agency websites. A simple Google search will yield a terrific selection of agencies that will allow you to search for your DJ with a specific location and price point in mind.
Better Service – On top of reading the crowd and knowing which music to play to keep everyone out on the dance floor, a DJ can provide many additional services that a band cannot. Many DJs will serve as emcees, announcing the wedding party as they arrive, providing toasts and narrating slide show presentations if need be. Some will even add a visual dimension to their performance with the help of LED lights, disco balls, etc. DJs can take requests from your guests, know which one’s to spin and which are best declined with a polite “if time permits.”
Continuous Entertainment – Unlike a band, a DJ can take breaks from time to time without having to stop the music. Plus, they are not limited in the number of songs they can play. DJs come prepared with extensive music catalogues and if you provide them with any special requests ahead of time, they will have no problem adding them to the playlist. Should there be any kind of equipment failure, a DJ will often bring backup equipment that is fully wired and ready to go so silence never spoils the fun.
On top of these great benefits, possibly the best reason to hire a wedding disc jockey is the peace of mind you’ll get just knowing your wedding reception’s entertainment is 100% taken care of, leaving you the freedom to focus on making unforgettable memories with your family and friends!
