1.      Making important announcements

If your wedding DJ is tasked with making important announcements at your wedding, you need should have one who is very vigilant. A DJ can make it easier for the photographers and videographers to take important pictures of special momentsif they make audible and timely announcements.

For example, a qualified DJ should announce your first dance so that the photographers will not miss it. To avoid such a scenario, go through all the important details that will take place at your wedding and inform your DJ which important announcements they should make.

Nothing will kill your spirit more than an empty dance floor on your wedding day. You want a DJ who can engage your guests and get them to fill the floor and showcase their best moves. One way to get a fired-up DJ is to choose one who is also a good MC. A good MC knows how to create a rapport with the crowd and inspire them to enjoy themselves. When you are interviewing a DJ, ask them very practical such as “what can you do to get most people to dance?” instead of“can you get people to dance?”

3.      Having an equipment hitch

Of all the bad things that can happen at your wedding reception, an equipment breakdown is by far the worst nightmare.  No music at all. What are you going to do? Always hire a DJ who has a sound back up plan to prepare for the worst-case scenario. You do not want a DJ telling you that their systems have failed and there is nothing they can do.

4.      Your DJ is nowhere to be seen

You have made all the music preparations with your DJ, but for some reasons, he or she does not show up. You are stuck on your phone trying to make fruitless phone calls and cursing the day you met that DJ. Your guests are bored and they are wondering where the music is. Not a good place to be.

When you are making agreements with your DJ, ensure that you ask them to communicate beforehand in case of any mishap. It is prudent to have a plan C, D, and E to fall back onif your wedding DJ fails to show up.

Having the perfect wedding is possible with some good prior planning, so go ahead and cover any loopholes you can foresee.
