Avoiding Common DJ Mistakes

If you’ve hired out a DJ, then you’re in for a treat.

They have a wealth of music available for your special day, and the ability to put on almost any kind of track.

However, there’s a couple of common mistakes that people make with their DJ, and we’re going to be looking at how you avoid them here.

Include The DJ In The Wedding Plans

If you’ve got a DJ hired out, then you should make them involved in what’s going on.

The perfect wedding requires coordination to get right.

All of the various elements – the lights, the music and the guests, have to be in perfect harmony to make sure that everything goes down without a hitch.

If you make sure your wedding DJ knows how you want to do things, then the chances of a mistake happening are reduced.

Filter Through The Music Options

One thing you should make sure you do is to filter out any songs which you do not want to hear.

It’s your wedding and any professional DJ worth his licence will respect your input no matter how vague the reasons you might give for not wanting to hear a song is.

If you go through and ask certain selections to be scratched from the list, you create a custom playlist that works for you.

Don’t Leave The DJ Out

When the wedding reception is in full swing, one of the worst things that you can do is just tell the DJ to play what he thinks will work.

You need to make sure that you’ve got an open dialogue with them during the day, so that you can have the songs you want to be played added to the playlist and that everything you want to listen to is played.

Mix It Up A Little

To make sure that everyone is engaged with the music you play, you should try and make sure that every possible combination of music is played.

Try and avoid one particular genre if you can, and make sure that there’s something for everyone played.

Not only will it help to keep the atmosphere bright and bubbly, but it will also ensure that your wedding is a firm favourite among guests and that everyone was glad they came.

Overall, these are just a few mistakes which people make when it comes to their DJ, and we want to make sure that you don’t commit these errors yourself.

Your DJ is a valuable friend during the wedding day, as they can make sure that your day is appropriately soundtracked and you get as much enjoyment as possible from it.

This will help when it comes to making sure that you have the best possible experience for your wedding, and that you do not regret not hearing a song or having an awkward moment where the DJ doesn’t come in at the right time.

These are all common mistakes which can upset an entire night, so the less of them you make, the better.
