The first thing you want to do is figure out is what type of DJ you want. There is a whole range out there. Do you want someone who will be able to get your guests out of their seats and on the dance floor? Do you want someone who will follow the lead of the crowd?
I’m not going to lie, it took me a good 5 years to even take a DJ’s business card at a wedding. Not that the DJs were bad, just nothing spectacular. I will say, the first DJ who wowed me enough to ask for a card was Frank of Friendly Entertainment.
Sometimes you might want something WAY over the top. One of the most extreme DJ experiences I’ve had was with Lasting Impressions. (They also have THE best limo service I’ve experienced over the years.) I saw them put on the Super Deluxe DJ Package at the McLean Wedding. What made them over the top? Well, they had the wedding party do the YMCA…hats, props and all! The bride’s dad dressed up like Elvis and the ladies in the audience were given underwear to throw at him. Obviously, this isn’t for everyone! But, if this is your cup of tea, oh my goodness is it fun!!
In my opinion, you want a DJ that will make your guests do this…
