Wedding DJ for Ceremony & Reception



When choosing the entertainment for your Wedding ceremony and reception there are many options out there. Your wedding day is one of the most important milestones in life and people spend a lot of time and money to ensure that day is perfect in every way. The time with family and friends, make for lasting memories. Faced with this, Bride and Grooms are confronted with planning the flow of the day and choosing among endless Wedding vendors.


The two options for the sound and music at the ceremony are some type of live music like a stringed quartet, or a Disc Jockey service. Live music like a harpist offers elegance and novelty. They are able to play the important songs the ceremony requires. On the other hand, a DJ service will set up the sound equipment before the guests arrive and have pre-ceremony music playing upon their arrival. They will play the selected songs for the Bridesmaids and Bide to walk down the aisle, as well as the song for the signing of the registry, recessional and any other important moment requiring music, such as the unity candle lighting or the sand pouring. The other advantage with the DJ is that he will have a wireless or lapel microphone for the officiant.


Choices for the Wedding reception entertainment are typically between having a live band or Disc Jockey. A band will give you that live music feel, but often are limited in the genres they can play and tend to be a little loud for some guests. The DJ on the other hand will have his full library of music with him and can play those special songs chosen by the couple for the first dance, bride/father, groom/mother, bouquet and garter, etc… which the band might not be able to accommodate. In addition, most Wedding DJs will act as your emcee using the experience they have gained at countless Weddings attended. Often they will help coordinate the evening informing the banquet hall and photographer of upcoming events that are to take place, such as speeches, cake cutting, etc…


Another advantage with choosing a Disc Jockey company for your Wedding is the lighting and special effects they can provide. Whether it is dry ice for the first dance or intelligent lights to spot the bride and groom, a DJ company will have the equipment and experience to utilize these at your wedding. In fact, many DJs now offer ‘LED Uplighting’ to add ambience to any ballroom. Whether it’s ‘Uplighting’ behind the head table or the entire room, mood lighting adds to any atmosphere. This will also save you money, as there is no need to choose two or three different vendors to accommodate the ceremony, reception and lighting. Most DJ Companies will offer you a discounted rate when choosing their services for all the above making life easier for you as well!
