Let’s face it, weddings are expensive and you definitely need to budget. So why not hire a cheap wedding DJ and save the money for something more important like back wrapped scallops ?
When all is said and done, how do you think you and your guests will judge the success of your wedding reception? Will it be because there were more appetizers than they could eat or by the fact that they danced and partied the night away with their family and friends at a once in a lifetime celebration?
A Good Wedding DJ is an Investment in Your Wedding
A good wedding DJ is an investment in the success of your wedding. The majority of the success of your wedding reception will be due to the entertainment you choose. If you have low quality entertainment your guests will not have a very good time and will most likely leave early. Have you ever attended a wedding and it just seems to drag on and on? This is because the DJ is improperly trained to facilitate the wedding. If this happens, all money you spent on everything else would seem a little pointless. A professional wedding DJ cares about the success of your reception! A Professional DJ is so much more than a DJ. We are the circus director to your circus. We make the timeline run smoothly by telling all the people behind the scenes what to do and when to do it. This allows weddings to flow smoothly without long periods of lag time.
Cheap Wedding DJ’s Are Usually Not Very Talented
A cheap wedding DJ is cheap for a reason, they most likely are new to the industry and have not performed at many events, they lack knowledge and experience. A quality wedding DJ will have the proper experience and training to be able to MC your wedding and ensure the entire reception flows smoothly. When it comes to dancing, their experience will allow them to “read the crowd” and play the right song at the right time to keep you dance floor full. They will also know how to talk on a microphone. Have you ever been to a wedding where the DJ is asking you to stand and applaud; do this and that? A trained professional doesn't have to do that. Talented wedding entertainers know how to get people up and moving without poking and prodding your guests. People know when and why to clap, they don't need someone to tell them to do it, they just need the opportunity.
Cheap Wedding DJ’s Can’t Afford Continuing Education
Professional DJs do not often invest large amounts of time and money in ongoing training and education to stay at the top of their game. Professional wedding entertainers also network with each other. They know that communication and learning from colleagues is crucial to staying at the top of their game. Amateur DJ’s usually don’t care enough to do this.
Cheap Wedding DJ’s Use Low Quality Equipment
Now, when I talk to clients I rarely talk about equipment. Some DJ's go on and on about how many songs they have and what they use. A true wedding DJ will not discuss equipment but rather talent. However, there is something to be said about DJ equipment. DJ equipment is really expensive. Cheap wedding DJ’s have cheap equipment. If you care about the quality of the sound at your wedding hire a professional DJ that uses professional equipment. Have you ever heard you get what you pay for? Do you want your cheap DJ’s $100 wireless microphone cutting in and out during your toasts? Or, would you rather have crystal clear toasts heard by everyone in the room because your wedding DJ uses a high-quality $600 wireless microphone?
Save The Stress, Hire a Professional DJ for Your Wedding!
When you hire a professional DJ company for your wedding instead of a cheap wedding DJ you will get the peace of mind of knowing that you have invested in the success of your wedding. You will have an experienced entertainer who will MC your event, has quality equipment, an extensive music library and has an established business. More importantly you will be investing your money with someone who has talent.
