In order to save money, many couples opt to have their “friend” who is good at creating playlists, provide the entertainment for the evening. Many couples do not realize that using an amateur DJ to save money actually comes at a cost.
When planning an event, especially your wedding, you may ask yourself: Why spend money on services when you won’t be happy? It is more financially and emotionally rewarding to invest in areas that will make your event something you’ll cherish forever.
Hire a professional DJ to play at your event for these reasons:
You can’t deny that your friend, who loves music and creates great playlists, doesn’t have the experience to play for a room full of people of different ages. They also don’t know how to make sure everyone has a good time. Many DJs will be asked to announce important events to guests such as the arrival of the wedding party or bride and groom at the reception, the cutting of cake, special dances and more. Professional DJs are not only trained to curate and choose playlists that flow naturally with the crowd and evening, but also to be able to speak in public. A DJ can often be the one who leads the evening. Hiring a professional to ensure everything runs smoothly is essential.
The Hochzeit-DJ is the one who uses the microphone most. The DJ is often asked to announce toasts or other special moments during the evening, particularly by couples attending weddings. Imagine that you have given your uncle or college friend the authority to control the microphone and the role of DJ. Do you want your friend who drank six packs of beer the night before and was fighting with his girl that morning, to be the DJ and in charge of the evening’s events? Do you trust your uncle to not tell embarrassing stories as a way to entertain the guests? Professional DJs are there to perform their job, be polite, and avoid making any embarrassing mistakes because they don’t know the person.
Enjoy Peace of Mind
You can relax and enjoy your special event by hiring a professional Hochzeits-DJ. It can be hard to keep track, especially at weddings. A DJ will be able to tell the caterer when to pour the champagne toast, alert the photographer when the cake is cut, and remind everyone when to dance and throw bouquets. The bride and groom should not have to worry about keeping everything on time during the reception. You can have peace of mind knowing that a DJ will take care of everything.
Professional Contracts and Liability
A contract will be provided to you when you hire a DJ. This contract will include all the information about your event. Both the DJ and client benefit from a contract because it ensures that you both are on the same page and holds you accountable. Professional DJs who are held accountable by a contract are reliable and punctual. A professional DJ will be prepared with backup plans in case they are unable to perform on the day. They will also have backup equipment available if anything goes wrong at the last moment. This reliability is not guaranteed by a friend or family DJ. You will be out of luck if they are sick or their equipment breaks, or if they have car trouble on the day, and you’ll have to play your own music using your iPod or phone. If something goes wrong, professional DJs will ensure that you have music. They often have assistants to help them make your event a success.
The Right Equipment
The right equipment is as important as the songs themselves. It doesn’t really matter what music is played if you or your guests cannot hear it, or if the sound system that you’re considering can’t make the music loud enough to be heard without background static. Also, you should consider having microphones available for toasts or other announcements. If you leave the entertainment to a family member or friend, these factors could be overlooked. A professional DJ has the equipment necessary to play crisp, clear music. They will also ensure that you have all of the accessories you require. A professional DJ has the equipment to play music in any venue, whether it’s a small restaurant, large ballroom or under a tent.
Professional Etiquette All Night Long
A DJ who is a friend or family member may do an excellent job in the beginning, greeting guests and announcing toasts, but the excitement and alcohol will increase, and your “must-play” list could be forgotten. You may even find yourself listening songs on your “do NOT play” playlist. Non-professional DJs lack the experience or discipline to follow the requests of guests of honor. They can get carried away, playing music that they enjoy and accepting song requests without looking at the playlists. Your happiness is the number one priority for a professional DJ. The DJ will follow your lists and accept or politely refuse requests from guests based on what you like. A professional DJ is also etiquette-conscious. They will arrive at the event on time and set up in the proper timeframe.
Professional DJs have a vast collection of music, which is unmatched by amateur music lovers and playlist makers. A professional DJ will be able to play older classics and new songs from the radio. They’ll also have your favourite songs and requests. Some DJs may have access to songs that are yet to be released. A professional DJ will have more songs and a greater variety than an amateur DJ. If you are dancing with your friends and ask the DJ to play you a song that you both want to hear at your event, you shouldn’t be surprised when they can’t or don’t know where to find it. Professional DJs, however, can accept requests on the spot and will have you dancing all night long.
