    Wedding reception dancingThe Role Of A DJ In A Wedding Is Misunderstood

    Most of the time, when you think of a DJ, you picture them pounding out music to a crazy crowd. That’s not a very accurate mental image, though – this is the description of a club DJ. You don’t want or need a Club DJ for your wedding – so make sure you don’t end up hiring one to yours.

    The very term ‘Wedding DJ’ is a source of confusion in itself – it’s more accurate to call them ‘Wedding Masters of Ceremonies.’ DJs in Traverse City have more responsibilities than merely playing music. The entire wedding ceremony, as well as first dances, introductions, cake cutting, cocktail hours and dancing all require an expert with a mic – so you can understand that a wedding without an excellent MC isn’t as exciting.

    A great wedding DJ will spend hours planning your event with you.

    Playing The Right Music At Your Wedding Shouldn’t Be A Coincidence

    The music played at your wedding shouldn’t be the same the MC played on the previous one. Just like you, your wedding should be unique, and a good DJ will begin planning weeks in advance of the day. He’ll ask questions about you as well as your guests, family, and your music taste in general.

    You want to set up the best possible mood before and during your wedding ceremony and play music that is meaningful to you. The right songs playing at cocktail hour will do wonders to create a certain atmosphere, and it’ll all depend on what you want to transmit. A first dance requires that you pick a song with the perfect lyrics to define your marriage – should your introduction be joyous and spirited, or guarded and somber?

    And of course, there’s dancing. It is your wedding day, so all your loved family members and friends will attend and wish you the best. That includes dancing with you to your favorite music – if you’re having fun at your wedding reception, guests will join in, so you need to pick music that you like so that the crowd will follow.

    If you’re not into dancing and don’t plan on being on the dance floor the majority of the night, that’s ok as well – you can simply let your DJ pick the music as the evening goes on. He should be an expert at reading the crowd and make sure they dance with the right music.
