Your wedding will likely be the biggest day of your life and also the biggest event you’ve ever planned. Once you’re through the ceremony, however, it’s just a huge party with the most important people in your world, and parties are supposed to be fun. For most people, a fun party includes a packed dance floor. Here are four important tips for ensuring that your guests dance and have fun.
Book The Right DJ
This may seem like a no-brainer, but there’s a lot that goes into this decision. Finding the right DJ is a whole lot more than a collection of tracks and up-to-date equipment (though both of those are important). Your wedding DJ needs to have the ability to read the room and make changes on the fly and the charisma to speak to both individual guests and the whole room. It’s not just about price when you make this decision – watch a video of the potential DJ’s work, look for specific reviews about them, and meet in person so you can cover all the important details.
Allow For A Wide Range Of Music
You and your soon-to-be-spouse may only listen to 90’s alt-rock, but sticking to a single genre won’t pack the dance floor. The truth is that the music is not just for you, and when you tell your DJ only to play certain artists or genres, you do everyone a disservice. Give your DJ the freedom to play what he or she thinks will get people out on the dance floor.
Limit the Do-Not-Play List
When you give your DJ a lengthy do-not-play list, you’re tying his or her hands, much like you do when you limit the music choice to a specific genre. If a song will absolutely ruin your day, you can definitely put it on the list.
Trust The Professionals
The bottom line is that you’re hiring a professional and you should trust them to know what they’re doing. Trust the professionals at Raptor Productions to play the music that you and your guests want to hear.
