When people think of hiring a wedding DJ, they often think of a great dance party. In this article we will see what role the DJ can play in the other parts of the wedding day.
Just For The Dance Party?
Without a doubt, when thinking about a DJ, you think of a dance floor filled with dancing people. But a wedding DJ can do so much more for your wedding than ‘just’ provide for a wonderful dance party. There are good reasons to have him involved in other parts of the day as well.
Unless you choose to be a little out-of-the-ordinary, a typical wedding day consists of the following elements:
- wedding ceremony
- (cocktail) reception
- dance party / open bar
Music often plays an important role in all of these parts. For sure, you like to have a special song played when the bride walks down the aisle, either by live musicians or from a record.
Next to that, it is highly recommended to use a microphone for the speeches of the officiant and others. Especially when the ceremony takes place outdoors. It ensures that all of your guests will be able to hear every word being spoken and it helps the speakers to speak without having to raise their voice. This creates an intimate atmosphere during the ceremony.
To accomplish this, you need the services of a dedicated professional to set up and operate the sound system during the ceremony.
It is very well possible to hire a specialized company for the job, but wouldn’t it be a lot easier and cost-effective to have the DJ do this for you?
Also, your wedding planner will be very happy with one supplier for all music, entertainment, and technical care, as this makes his/her job a lot easier.
Many wedding DJs offer some kind of full-day service. At MOOOV Event Services we call it an All-Day Wedding DJ Package and it covers everything from music and sound support for the wedding ceremony, background music during reception and diner, and the party music and lighting effects until the very last dance. We also arrange for live musicians to perform during any of these sections.
Pre-party & after-party
Having a destination wedding at a lovely villa, hacienda or another estate? Chances are, you hired the venue for more than one day. Wouldn’t it be great to have your DJ play at the pool party the day before or the day after the wedding? Most likely you can get a good deal on it, as he has to set up the DJ gear anyway.
