6 Qualities Your DJ Should Have

by World Class Wedding Venues Consultant

There are many types of DJs and choosing a wedding DJ is very important for your wedding day. Great wedding DJs possess several qualities. Listed below are some of those ¬¬must-have qualities:

Pays Attention ­­to their Client's needs:

A professional wedding DJ will pay close attention to your instructions and ensure they comply to your wishes. Professional DJs know this is the most important day of your life, and you trust them to maintain the time line to make your day run smooth. A wedding DJ will always put the couple's needs first and make sure the guests are having a great time.

Pronounces names correctly:

Great wedding DJs have the accountability of pronouncing the couple's and all the bridal party names correctly. The DJ ensures each name is spelled and pronounced the exact way they are told. They practice and go over each name with the couple many weeks in advance of the wedding.

Coordinate and visit with the venue:

A professional wedding DJ should contact or visit with the venue prior to the wedding day to secure all logistics. The DJ should discuss where to park, when the doors open, where to set up the equipment, any specific venue rules, wifi usage and any other rules the venue may have.

Reads the crowd:

A great wedding DJ wants to get the guests out on the dance floor and keep it full the whole event. They should observe the crowd and know what music should be played. Is it a younger crowd? What type of music is working to keep everyone dancing. A bride and groom most likely have given the DJ the type of music they want played, and they know what their crowd likes.

Being a Team Player:

Professional DJs coordinate their efforts with the venue staff, wedding videographers, photographers and the other vendors. All vendors make the wedding team, and working together is very important to make your wedding a success. The DJ plays a big role on being part of that team. The DJ should help if possible to make sure everything goes as planned for all of the wedding team.

Setup on wedding day:

Professional DJs should arrive at the venue hours prior to the event. They need to unload and setup the equipment. The DJ needs to adjust sound levels, test the microphone and place the speakers in the right place due to the room's acoustics. Every location is different with the acoustics and the right placement is very important whether inside or outside.
