Understanding most young couples that are making plans to hire a cheap DJ for their wedding aren't really saving any money at all. Hopefully before making a decision you may regret later. Here are some things to consider.
If you really think it's expensive to hire a pro DJ for your wedding, wait until you hire an inexperienced DJ.
1. There is a high likelihood that a really inexpensive (or free) DJ won't be ready to go when your wedding day arrives.
Some low-estimated DJs aren't sufficiently charging to bolster their own particular organizations for the long haul; you're simply financing their fun little side hobby. In the interim, your wedding is 6-12 months away or more.
We have received many calls over the years from frantic couples who had a "companion of a companion" DJ fall off the face of the earth by not answering their phone or text messages, some just outright cancel at the last minute. It's not a beautiful site.
Would you like to encounter the likelihood that the low-priced or free DJ has gone broke or went out of business before your huge day?
2. Novices DJs don't really have a vested interest into their execution than a professional wedding DJ.
The beginner DJ is doing it "for no particular reason, just for fun" and if something turns out badly, it's not a major ordeal. A professional wedding DJ, then again, chances his or her whole notoriety and job with each event. One awful comment can devastate his or her business and they know it.
At one wedding, the DJ brought along his wife and infant. Their table was covered with burger rappings and his wife chose to breastfeed the child a midst a beautiful wedding supper.
Wouldn't it make sense to have a professional DJ who is massively invested into his or her business and presentation on your wedding day, rather than somebody who does it just for the fun of it?
3. A wedding is an extraordinary occasion that require the abilities and experience of a wedding master for a smooth, faultless wedding ceremony and reception gathering.
It's about more than simply playing music. Your wedding DJ is in charge of arranging the course of events, organizing the presentation and stream of occasions, working with your different merchants, dealing with the visitors, perusing the group and verifying the right melody is played at simply the opportune time.
Indeed, even a DJ who is very experienced in the club setting will be at a misfortune in light of the fact that he or she just isn't acquainted with the stream of occasions and how to counteract debacles when something goes amiss.
One very unpracticed DJ asked a bride and her grandpa out on the dance floor at an event, with surprised look he then realized he neglected to overhaul his event notes. The whole family began crying on the grounds that Grandpa had passed away two weeks before.
Is it true that you are willing to put the result of your wedding in the hands of somebody who doesn't "do" weddings professionally for a living?
4. Your wedding reception guests won't move without an accomplished performer who can read the group and keep the energy going.
You need to play the right melodies at the opportune time and organized appropriately to keep people on the dance floor. Frequently, the mind-set changes and your DJ needs to change music to keep everyone dancing.
In the event the DJ can't blend songs very well, you could have gaps in the music or really off beat tempos that may upset your wedding reception guests and they give up and just leave the dance floor.
Numerous wedding couples feel that giving a beginner DJ a song list of some of their favorite songs will be sufficient to make a fun wedding. This is certainly not the case. You should require somebody with experience to work with your party guests music requests and what songs make your wedding guests remain on the dance floor the entire time during your event.
One of the bridesmaids we spoke with at a wedding once time told us her friend regretted hiring a cheap DJ because they played the same slow song every time there was a request for a slow dance. The DJ did not know any other slow songs to play.
