While it is true that many weddings have gone the way of DIY (do it yourself), one aspect you don’t want to cut corners on is with your DJ. Sure, you can rent speakers and hook up an iPod loaded with all your faves and although this may seem fiscally sound, when it comes to the music, none of your guests are likely to approach you and say “well played”.

Someone will need to be charged with making sure to play the right songs at the appropriate times, to avoid replays and assume the role of a professional DJ/Emcee. A professional DJ will plan accordingly with you concerning the type of music you want played, coordinate your grand entrance, dinner music and all important formalities for your wedding. A professional DJ also has the acumen and skills to professionally manage your event and bring your dance floor to life.

Remember, there are many aspects of your wedding whereby you have the green light to DIY, but please, leave the music up to a pro.
