Should I Become a Wedding DJ?

[ 0 ] July 2, 2020 |

Should I become a wedding DJ? Many people are wondering if this is something they should do.

So, just what do you mean when you say that? If I said that I have a gift for music and are willing to work with other people to create something spectacular, what exactly would that mean? If I said that I will perform on your special day and have a flair for entertaining people, well what is it that I would be doing on that day?

The only thing that has changed since I wrote the last article is that now there is such a thing as “DJing”. The answer to the question of should I become a wedding DJ?

Wedding DJ Bride and Groom DanceBy doing a little research on the topic you may learn that, on many wedding day, the event is the main attraction and, therefore, the responsibilities and finances of the bride and groom are the main focus. For most brides, it is not the end of the world if the main attraction is someone else, but for most grooms it may seem as though we are neglecting him or her.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that the bride and groom should be avoiding their bridal party, they can always play the music and dance the way they want and hire someone to sit in the corner to watch them from across the room. This is not the point.

Many people ask whether a wedding DJ is something that they should consider doing. In order to do it right, it is necessary to hire a service that is fully licensed, insured, and bonded. With those protections in place, there is no reason to worry about what happens if one of the two of you gets hurt.

Before hiring someone to come and perform for you, you should have some idea of the type of music that you would like to hear. If you have just recently been married and are looking for a unique way to celebrate, you may want to consider hiring a live band, but if you are a professional who performs for a living, you may want to see whether they are licensed to work with children. It is also important to understand that there may be additional costs to hiring a DJ, especially if you hire one on the day of the wedding.

If you’re not really sure how you want to do it, consider having someone DJ you that you can contact at any time. They can tell you what time they are available and can give you a complete list of what songs they can play, depending on the day and your preferences. Most professional DJs will always do as much as they can to be fair and never do anything that they don’t feel comfortable with.

Should I become a wedding DJ? Just like many other things in life, to find out whether or not it is something that you will enjoy, you need to start by asking yourself a few questions.

Are you in the habit of being more social than the average person? If you aren’t, then hiring a DJ might not be for you.

Would you rather have the person come in and decide what songs to play and then they would turn them all off after you? Or would you prefer the process to be controlled by you? It could be one, or the other, but one thing that you must realize is that the DJ should be able to add in other elements as well, such as sound effects or perhaps a DJ sound machine.

Depending on what you would like to happen, a few days before the wedding, you could decide to have your wedding DJs come in and either start to play the songs for you and explain what they are or you could take over and ask them what songs you would like to use. Many brides and grooms find that they don’t like the songs they originally thought of, so they hire a DJ to come in and mix things up. – It’s all a matter of finding out if you and your guests would like to have DJ services or if you prefer to DJ.

I’m a part-time DJ and music digger. Although my days of digging in crates have finished for my love of all things digital. That’s unless a real special vinyl pops up for my collection. In my spare time, I enjoy checking out SoundCloud, Bampcamp, and swapping funk soul hip hop, and dance ideas with other DJs. I also have a cat, so any final decision on the music comes down to her.
