Wedding DJs

Other than the moment you say I do, the most memorable part of your wedding will be your wedding reception. Your guests will certainly feel this way. There is a lot of planning that goes into a great reception, but you don't want to underestimate the entertainment factor. This can truly make or break a wedding reception. We realize that Las Vegas and entertainment go hand in hand, but that doesn't mean all of the entertainment options offered in Las Vegas would be what you want at your wedding. There are hundreds of Wedding DJs in the area, but be very wary because there is a huge range in terms of quality and the last thing you want are your guests running away from the dance floor and the reception area. When you start researching Wedding DJs, consider the factors discussed below very carefully.

There is no substitute for a professional Wedding DJ that that truly knows what they are doing. The last thing you want to experience at your reception is the dance floor clearing because the DJ you hired is playing some off the wall nail biting music. Or can you imagine sitting at your reception as your DJ drums on about everything and nothing because they love to hear the sound of their own voice. One thing you want to avoid at all costs is hiring what is called the hobbyist, someone who likes to fancy themselves as a DJ, but they have never been trained in any way, don't have professional equipment, and have hardly any experience. Now, that kind of person would be an absolute disaster if they were at your wedding.

When you are looking at prospective wedding DJs, make sure they are dedicated professionals who spend a lot of time honing their craft, taking training courses, glean information from workshops, and quite frankly, are out there working gigs to see what works and what doesn't. You also want to make sure you actually enjoy being around the DJ you might hire. Personality is a huge factor for positions like this. Remember, you will be working with them quite a bit to get the program events in the right order. Also, they will be interacting with your guests. So, anyone that you feel wouldn't treat one of your guests properly or with respect, forget about them.

As you do your research and gather a list of names, you also want to make a list of questions you want to ask candidates. Ask about their experience and how many weddings they have performed at. And never be afraid to ask questions even a question that you feel might be a stupid one. If a candidate is not open to your questions, you want to stop considering them for your wedding. You want someone who is interested in your likes and dislikes, they should want to gather as much information from you as possible and provide suggestions as to how they can make your reception something awesome.

Whoever you are seriously considering, make sure you look up their name on Google just to see what might pop up. Also, look for reviews about them. And ask them for references that you can talk to. One other source is the Better Business Bureau, you will want to check with them to see if any bad reviews or complaints have been registered about a particular DJ. All of this takes time, but it could save you a lot of grief.

One last thing, cheap does not mean better. Sometimes you have to pay for quality. We are not saying you have to break the bank, but expect to pay something for value. If you need a good value in Michigan try out Best Wedding DJ Detroit.
