Thank you from How to DJ a Wedding
Are you still considering options for the entertainment at your wedding reception? Let me tell you that your decision should be a wedding DJ. While wedding DJs don?t offer everything you may want, they do give the most benefit when compared to the other options out there. If you are wondering what those benefits are, hold your horses because I?m going to tell you.
Wedding DJs cost less than live bands, sometimes in considerable amounts. Not only that, wedding DJs can usually hook you up with some sweet deals for perks such as extra lighting, an excellent sound system, and so on. Which pretty much means you get more for less. However, don?t pick the cheapest DJ around just to save up; the rule of thumb is if the price of the wedding DJ is too high or too low, tread with caution. Do your research on the pricing in your area.
Since wedding DJs come usually as one-man packages, with only a possible addition of a member or two, you don?t need to have a huge venue to accommodate them. Some people have to book larger venues for their wedding reception despite having smaller crowds just because they hired a live band, which can be a real waste of money. Not only that, you won?t have a lot of extra mouths to feed during your reception.
Variety and Value For Money
While some argue that live bands provide a more fun atmosphere, you cannot deny that a wedding DJ makes up for what he/she lacks in variety. With an extensive playlist of carefully selected songs, a good quality DJ will never have trouble getting your crowd excited and uplifted throughout the reception. Guests will also be happy with the fact that they can request for pretty much any song, and the DJ will be able to play it. Live bands usually have a more narrow selection of songs because it is limited to what they can play.Besides that, wedding DJs usually can double as spokespersons, reducing your headache of finding someone else to handle the emceeing. DJs for wedding also need fewer breaks than live bands, so you?ll definitely be getting the most out of your money.
Looking at the benefits above, it?s no wonders that many couples are opting for wedding DJs instead of live bands or other forms of entertainment. You?d be making a smart choice if you opt for them too!
