Why hiring a professional DJ is a brilliant consideration for your special event
A pro DJ will have a level or professionalism that will be hard to match by anyone else. A pro DJ will have dozens of weddings under their belt - and so they know every in and out, every small nuance of how a reception goes. The timing of the first dance, the best final songs to wrap up the night to coincide with the venue’s liquor license running out and more are a few examples of how a pro DJ can ensure that your night runs smoothly because of their knowledge and professionalism.
2. The right equipment
A professional DJ will have the right equipment to handle a venue of any size, shape, or form. It’s not just about properly filling the room however; it’s also about bringing your wedding reception to the next level, and making it a night that your guests will remember for years to come. The add-ons that you can also get as a part of many DJ packages can include extra lighting, monograms, and specialty effects that can really add a shine to your wedding night.
A professional DJ will have worked wedding receptions at all types of venues under their belt - from barns, resorts, backyards and banquet halls most pro DJs will have worked at the large majority of the common venues and will have even likely worked with the venue’s event coordinator in the past. This ensures that any last minute changes in the schedule, any mishaps or any other issue that may occur as the night goes on will be handled and coordinated between the DJ and the venue efficiently and effectively. This also includes the end of your night too - bringing the party to an end at the same time as the shutting down of the bar will get your remaining guests off the floor and back to where ever they are heading for the night instead of hanging around, causing issues at the venue after hours.
4. THE MUSIC
A professional DJ will have extensive levels on knowledge on all genres of music, so that no matter the crowd, they have the right music. A pro DJ won't be caught playing the music that they personally like but is inappropriate for the crowd; they will always be playing the right music for the crowd. It can be a challenge at weddings for amateur DJ's to cater to the diverse crowds that are at weddings - you've got the grandparents and parents, the your peers, and possibly their children. An amateur DJ with limited experience would struggle to get everyone out on the floor dancing to what they like.
5. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING
At the end of the night, you know that there is nothing to worry about - the DJ will be professional, equipped, and experienced. There will be zero issues with unexpected events, improper equipment, or poor music taste. These qualities separate a amateur DJ from a pro - and what makes the difference between an average wedding reception and a great one.
