5 Things to Tell Your Wedding DJ

Published 06/19/2020

While most couples understand the importance of having a great DJ it is important to remember we can make your wedding the best day ever! If you do not tell us certain details. Here are 5 things you should tell your DJ to ensure you have the best wedding ever!

Important Songs 
What we like to call “must-plays,” songs that simply must get played at your wedding, no questions asked. With our client portal, we make it easy for you to tell us what songs must be played. We also want to know all your formalities: first dance song, parent dances, cake cutting song, etc. don’t forget about a song for the last dance too! 

Pronouncing names properly is crucial and sets the tone for the entire wedding! We set up a review with all our couples before the wedding day to nail down all pronunciation to anyone we are introducing.

Requests & Do NOT Play Songs
Most couples let us know if it is ok for their guests to request songs. The most common scenario is for our DJ to use their judgment on the song requested. Most of the time guests are requesting songs just simply to request a song, a good DJ will know if the song they are requesting will be successful with your crowd based on other songs they have played. Just like your ‘must play’ songs are important your ‘do not play’ are even more important, we don’t want to play anything you do not want to hear! Number one request on our couples do not playlist – line dances! (Obviously, the chicken dance is included!)

For introductions let us know the tone you want us to set. Our Emcee style is to just be on the microphone when necessary to keep your guests informed of what is happening. But we want to know your style and comfort level as some couple’s love being the center of attention while others do not.

Family Dynamics
Let us know of any strained relationships, divorcees, step parents, or other things that could cause awkwardness. We don’t need all your guest's details just your VIPS or wedding party. We will use the utmost care and sensitivity while interacting with those guests and in making announcements at your reception.

We hope we are the one to DJ your wedding day but if not please be sure to share these important things with your DJ.
