Many couples consider their wedding day to be the most important day of their lives. Not only do they want a memorable day, but they also want their guests to have a terrific time. One way to ensure that both aspects are covered is to make sure your entertainment is up to par. Your reception DJ is responsible for setting the tone of your entire reception, so choosing the right DJ is sometimes the most difficult decision for a couple. To alleviate some of the stress of making this important decision, the wedding experts at Enchanted Celebrations have compiled a list of the characteristics of an unforgettable DJ.

1. Make sure that you have more than 1 DJ: Less is not always more! Finding a DJ service that provides 2 DJs ensures that there is no dead air at any point during your reception and that the dance floor is packed all night. The 2 DJs work together to make the transitions between songs as natural as possible while also pumping up the crowd.

2. Find a DJ service that gives you control of the music: Anyone who has been to a wedding within the past 10 years knows that there is only so much of the ‘Chicken Dance” song a person can endure! It is important to be able to communicate with you DJ the songs you’d like to hear and the songs you do not want to hear. Find a DJ that allows you to personalize their playlist to your specifications in writing prior to your wedding day. This way you can guarantee that your DJ reflects your personal taste.

3. Lights do not make or break a reception, it is the talent of your entertainment: The single most important part of your entertainment is the music so make sure you research your DJ before you make any commitments. Many companies now provide blogs and customer reviews of their services with a company so look around! Remember, you get what you pay for.
