Once you’ve exchanged wedding vows, greeted guests, and devoured dinner, you’re probably looking forward to spending the rest of the evening dancing and having a blast. This is where your DJ comes in! A great DJ will set the tone for your reception and ensure everyone has a memorable night.

Things to Consider

Just like with all parts of your wedding, the music and choice of DJ is a very personal decision. Think about the type of mood you want to set. Do you want an all out dance party, or just some smooth classy tunes to accompany the evening? If getting down on the dance floor is a priority, do you prefer swing dancing, club music, country line dances, or classic oldies? You’ll certainly be able to blend styles over the course of the night, but it’s worth thinking about what your preferences and priorities are so that you can discuss them with your potential DJs and choose someone who matches well with your style.

Personality

Your DJ plays a huge role in setting the tone for the evening. Make sure you meet with them ahead of time to make sure their personality and style is a good fit for you. This is also a great time to discuss your preferences with them. See if you can give them a “do not play” list, find out what services they provide, how they handle song requests from guests, and whether they include lighting with their packages.

It's Not Just About the Music

While the reception and dance party is the DJs time to shine, they can also be a big part of your day as a whole. Many DJs also provide ceremony music and audio if needed, as well as MC services to help each part of the day flow seamlessly into the next. They can do things like announce your grand entrance, first dances, and cake cutting as well as organize games or group dances. Be sure you communicate with them about what they offer and what your preferences are.
