For all of the stress and considerations of planning a wedding, the last thing you may expect to get obsessed over is the music. With a wedding DJ, you’ll have peace of mind that a professional can take care of the mood, energy, and sound equipment for the night. But there are a few universal truths about wedding planning when it comes to music–even if you have a wedding DJ to help you through it. Here are five truths about picking your wedding music.
The First Dance is a Tough Decision
Chances are, you’re going to obsess over your first dance–and that’s okay. It’s a big moment for a couple to take their first dance in front of all their loved ones. So from the music to the lighting, to the dance moves, your first dance is a big planning moment.
You Need the Right Sound System
Depending on your venue choice, there may be an in-house sound system for you to use. However, it’s important to test the system out, because you’ll want a high-quality sound system that will sound great and keep guests dancing through the night. Your wedding DJ may also provide their own equipment–either way, you’ll want to do a sound check ahead of the event.
Consider Your Guests
When you have talented musicians among your family and friends, it’s tempting to ask them to lend their skill to your wedding ceremony to make the moment that much more special. However, keep their feelings in mind and put yourself in their shoes. They may simply want to be a guest, and that’s okay! Just be sure to sort it out ahead of time so you can make proper arrangements.
Leave it to the Professionals
At the end of the day, it’s your wedding and you’ll want to make sure every moment is perfect–right down to the playlist. However, when you partner with a professional wedding DJ, you need to trust them to make sure the party goes as planned. Discuss some of your top choices and tastes ahead of time to make sure you and your DJ are on the same page.
Don’t Worry About Your Dancing Skills
Even if you’re the most confident person in the room, expect to worry about your dancing skills. All eyes will be on you, but that’s no reason to stress about your moves! After all, your wedding reception is a party, so it’s time to let go and have fun with all your loved ones.
