Are you ready to make your wedding celebration a truly unforgettable event? As you prepare to tie the knot, we understand that choosing the right entertainment is a decision you won’t take lightly. At DJ Dave Entertainment, we’ve been providing the best DJ services in New England for over 20 years. We believe that the entertainment is the heartbeat of any wedding celebration, and we take our role in making your big day unforgettable very seriously.
With years of experience in the industry, we understand what couples need and want from their DJ. We know your wedding day is not just another gig—it’s your once-in-a-lifetime event. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of seven crucial things that any professional wedding DJ should deliver, and that we pride ourselves on delivering.
They Get to Know You
Your wedding should be as unique as your love story. That’s why we take the time to get to know you and your partner, so we can create a celebration that will live long in your and your guests’ memories.
We don’t just show up and play music—we take the time to ask questions about your love story, interests, and music preferences. This helps us better understand the atmosphere you want to create on your big day. By tailoring the music and entertainment to your tastes, we can create a celebration that is a true reflection of who you are.
For example, we had the pleasure of chatting with a couple who were both raised on the timeless tunes of big band or “jazz orchestra,” which dominated the music scene from the 1930s to the late 1940s. To honor their unique musical history, we curated a playlist with their favorite big band hits that they absolutely adored.
They Help Coordinate the Agenda and Timeline
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to get bogged down in the details. That’s where a professional wedding DJ like us can come in handy! We have performed at countless weddings over the years, so we know the ins and outs of how things typically flow.
Not only can we provide guidance on when to schedule events like the ceremony, cocktail hour, and parent dances, but we can also help ensure that everything runs smoothly on the big day. We’ll work closely with you to create a timeline and agenda that fits your unique vision for the wedding so you don’t have to stress about the details.
And if you need help figuring out where to start, don’t worry! We share a sample timeline and agenda with every couple we work with. This is just one of the many ways we go above and beyond to ensure your wedding is everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
They Help with Music Planning
When planning the music for your wedding, you don’t have to do it alone. Your DJ is there to help every step of the way. Whether you need help selecting the perfect songs for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception, we’ve got you covered.
We start by getting to know you and your music preferences. Are you into acoustic covers, Top 40 hits, or a mix which includes a little bit of everything? Once we get a sense of your style, we can make some recommendations for the different parts of your wedding. For example, we love suggesting the Guitar Tribute Players for the ceremony. Their instrumental covers of popular songs are sure to give your guests a great experience.
But we also know that every couple has unique tastes, which is why we provide an online planner that allows you to enter your custom suggestions for the ceremony and your top 5 to 10 favorite dance party songs. Plus, with our years of experience, we can help you plan the perfect musical flow for your special day, from the first dance to the final sendoff.
So don’t stress about the music planning—let us help you create the perfect soundtrack for your wedding.
They Make Clear and Necessary Announcements
When it comes to your wedding day, you want everything to go smoothly, and that’s where our expertise comes in.
As professional wedding DJs, we act as the host and MC of your special day. We will make sure to inform everyone what is about to happen, keeping things moving along without being overbearing or drawing attention away from the couple. After all, this day is all about the happy couple, and we want to make sure that they are the stars of the show.
But we’re not just there to make announcements. We know when to take things up a notch and get people involved. Whether it’s getting the crowd to participate in a fun dance routine or leading an activity such as the centerpiece giveaway, we know how to create an exciting and engaging atmosphere for you and your guests.
They Have a Plan B
Even the most well-planned weddings can experience hiccups, and we are prepared for any curve balls that might come our way. We know that timelines can get delayed, family members may need to step out for a moment, or unexpected issues may arise. But no need to worry because we always have a Plan B.
With over 20 years of experience, we’ve encountered many situations and have learned how to handle them like true professionals. We will work with the caterers, photographers, and other vendors to understand why a delay occurred and ensure we keep the guests engaged and the wedding party entertained during the interim. We can adjust the schedule as needed to ensure that your special day flows smoothly, no matter what happens.
They Have Backup Equipment
When it comes to your big day, the last thing you want to worry about is a technical malfunction. That’s why we always come prepared with backup equipment. We know that even the best equipment can fail from time to time, so we bring along spare speakers, laptops, cables, wires, and microphones to ensure that we’re always ready to keep the party going.
You can rest easy knowing that if something were to go wrong, we’d have it covered. With our backup equipment, we’ll be able to quickly and seamlessly switch over to ensure that the music and entertainment never come to a halt.
They Go the Extra Mile
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and we understand that. That’s why we always go above and beyond to ensure you and your guests have an unforgettable experience.
When it comes to the ceremony, we don’t just show up and start playing music—we go the extra mile to create the perfect atmosphere. We start playing guest arrival music 30 minutes before the ceremony starts, which sets the tone and gets everyone in the right mindset for the ceremony. This is just one small example of the many ways we strive to make your wedding day extra special.
