Booking A Wedding DJ

When you want to get your wedding guests up and dancing, it's hard to beat a professional wedding DJ. Playing all your favourite tracks plus those dance floor filler classic from the 1950s to the present day, a good wedding DJ will ensure everyone has a fab-tastic time from first dance to last stagger! If you've never booked a DJ before, this guide explains everything you'll need to know, including advice about what the DJ will do at your event, how you can ensure quality, how much it costs to hire a wedding DJ, what's involved in the booking process and much more.

What Is A Wedding DJ And What Do They Do?

A Wedding DJ specialises in providing the very best wedding entertainment, carefully tailored to keep guests of all ages entertained and dancing throughout your wedding party. They will often act as compare for the evening reception, introducing the bride and groom for their first dance, the cutting of the cake, and making general announcements as required throughout the night.

Wedding DJs understand the diverse mix of guests you're likely to have at your wedding, from youngest nephew to elderly grandparents, and their skill is in judging the right music to play to keep everyone entertained and involved all night long. They carry huge collections of songs in what are now often digital DJ systems, allowing you the chance to have a highly customised playlist for your event, and offering guests the opportunity to make a wide veriety of requests.

Also know as 'mobile discos' - professional Wedding DJs provide a fully self contained service which you can hire for your wedding anywhere in the UK. They will supply all the equipment they'll need to turn your wedding reception into a party, including their own DJ decks, PA speakers, microphones and disco lighting. Where ever you're getting married, our Wedding DJs offer a cost effective party in a box!

A good Wedding DJ should have a passion for all genres of music so that he can predict the response of people in the room when he plays certain classic songs from his collection. It is important for a DJ to read his crowd, and he should instinctively know what kind of music will get people dancing. - Anton Foley
