Without snooping around a little, you might think that choosing a wedding DJ is no more than making sure they have access to your curated Spotify playlist.
Oh, no no no. We spoke to Rick Weber of Fusion Sound and Lighting - he and his folks have been at this for a long time.
"When I meet a new couple, the biggest unknown is often what a Wedding DJ actually does, says Rick. "'I give you a playlist and you just play it?' is kind of where they're at."
"Your DJ does much more and will work with you to lay out a complete timeline for the evening. You'll discuss how all the milestone events will happen, what your vision is for the evening, what experience you want your guests to have, and so on.
"The main goal in pre planning is to make sure the couple has nothing to worry about except enjoying their special evening," says Rick.
"You can think of your wedding DJ as your guest's personal host for the evening. During the ceremony they will play the music and have microphones so your guests hear every word. After that, the DJ is there to direct your guests, make sure they know what is to come, etc.
"When we get to the reception the wedding DJ sets the stage for the evening's entertainment. And a good DJ will do things beyond the music: the lighting, for example, will set the mood, vibe, or feel for the wedding you envisioned.
"The bottom line," according to Rick, "is this: Music is the main thing a wedding DJ is known for. But that's the easy part: we combine your personal requests, the vibe of the room, guest requests, and our personal 'crowd reading skills' to achieve a packed dance floor. You know: fun!
"A lot goes into what makes a DJ a wedding DJ. Be sure in your search to understand what your personal entertainment vision and goal is for your special day and look for a wedding DJ that can understand this vision and make it become a reality!"
