Your Wedding DJ Can Make or Break the Day

Your Wedding DJ Can Make or Break the Day

A Good DJ Will Make Your Reception Unforgettable

For the happy couple, the most important part of the wedding day is actually getting married. If you said your "I do"s, then your main mission was accomplished. But for many couples, they want far more than just tying the knot to happen on their wedding day. They want to throw an amazing party for their friends and family to all celebrate with them. Couples put a lot of thought into the venue, the food, the photographer, and the flowers. And these are all good things! But one thing some people don't realize can make or break the party is the DJ.

A Good DJ Will Make Your Reception Unforgettable

If you've been to your fair share of weddings, you've probably been to at least one with a really good DJ and a really bad DJ. Here is the difference. A bad DJ could easily be replaced by an iPhone with a playlist plugged into the stereo—and maybe the iPhone could have done a better job! But a good DJ creates an atmosphere that keeps the party going, provides plenty of time to honor the bride and groom, and makes sure there is not dead air and your guests are entertained. A good DJ means guests leave saying they had the time of their lives.

At Direct Entertainment, we understand everyone wants something different out of a DJ. DJs are certainly not one-size-fits-all. We take the time to match our clients with a DJ based on their ages, music preferences, and the amount of interaction desired. Our DJs are all certified MCs (master of ceremonies) which is not something all DJs can say. The difference is an MC knows just what to say to keep your event moving and keep guests entertained. As the bride and groom, this is the very last thing you want to be dealing with as you celebrate your special day.

However, before the wedding, we want to make sure you let us know exactly how you want it to go. Unlike some of our competitors, we let our couples pick the entire playlist if they want to, from a database of 1.5 million songs. This database is the largest in the industry. So for music snobs, or just for people who know exactly what they want to hear, we can absolutely arrange that! Or if you want to let the DJ feel out the party and choose all of the songs, you can be as "hands off" as you want to be as well. Before the event we also talk about all of the special things you want to have happen during your reception like the first dance, father/daughter dance, toasts, games, and anything else you want.

State of the Art DJ Equipment

When it comes to the details of our services, our digital sound systems are the state-of-the-art, ensuring you get the best music quality possible. Our DJs are professional, classy, and always show up in a suit or shirt and tie. And if something were to happen to your DJ at the last minute like illness, we always have backup DJs who can do the job. If you can believe it, our DJs love what they do so much 90% of them have been with Direct Entertainment for over 15 years. 

At Direct Entertainment, we offer three different DJ packages, depending on how long you want their services and if you want them providing music and coordination throughout the ceremony as well or just the reception. Check out our DJ packages here. And for more information of the services we offer at Direct Entertainment, contact us today. Don't let your guests leave your wedding excited for the happy couple but trying to find an excuse to leave the reception as soon as possible. Give your guests a night to remember and we know it will be for you as well!
