We’ve talked a lot about the pros and cons of hiring a DJ for your big day, what you should expect and how much of your budget you should consider using for that element. What I want to talk to you about today is why you should choose a professional. It’s tempting to believe that anyone can operate a playlist and announce when it’s time to cut the cake, especially when they are a lot cheaper. But when you’re spending a large amount of money on an extremely special event, choosing quality goes a long way. Here’s why:
- An amateur is less invested in their performance, meaning they don’t guarantee a superior sound or reliable equipment. They may not bring the type of music you & your guests want, because they often haven’t invested in a larger library of music.
- A professional carries an agenda, ensuring a smooth flawless order of events that has been established well before the ceremony begins. They guarantee continuity in momentum and know how to get the crowd moving.
- Choosing a cheaper option sacrifices fun for your guests, because only experienced DJs know how to play the right songs at exactly the right time and in the right order to maintain dancing and mood.
- Professionals provide reliability because they’ve been in the industry for a while, and will be around for a long time to come. You don’t have to worry about their status at the time of your wedding.
Ultimately, the decision of who to hire is up to you, but let’s talk about it and make sure you know the benefits of hiring a professional to emcee your big day.
