Since the DJ will likely be operating the microphones, it’s not uncommon for them to be the host of any games, wedding events, or announcements during your wedding. They will introduce you and your bridal party to the entire room, announce your first dance, and even mingle with your guests as they request music. A master Wedding DJ/MC will also interact with your guests in a way that leaves them feeling excited and energized.

Premium DJ Services $2000+

Your Wedding DJ should work with you to pick the music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, as well as events and games. During your wedding day, your DJ will trigger these events to unfold by cuing music and making announcements. An exceptional Wedding DJ should help the bride and groom plan and maintain the flow of the event in a way that minimizes downtime and maximizes up-time.

The important thing to remember is that you want to hire a DJ who will happily interact with your guests, who will cater playlists to the people on the dance floor instead of themselves, and who will help to maintain your desired flow and atmosphere of the event. That is why you should hire a Wedding DJ who has lots of reviews and recommendations.
