How to pick WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC. WHAT SONG SHOULD I PICK…

WEDDING MUSIC AND WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC

One thing that make picking out your WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC difficult is thinking that you have to pick out a lot of music. Some WEDDING DJ companies will send you a form or an online link and ask you to pick 50-100 songs for your WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC.

In our opinion that is wrong! If you hired a great WEDDING DJ he/she is an expert at sizing up the crowd and playing the right music and taking requests from your guests. It’s been our experience that the less music the bride and groom pick the more fun everybody has. When picking your WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC keep in mind that your personal taste in music may not appeal to ANY of your guests.

Here at A BETTER DJ AND PHOTOGRAPHER we have an email planner that has a built in time-line where he bride and groom just put in what time they want to do each event and what song they would like to have for it. At the bottom there is a place for 10 requests that we mix into the dinner and dance music depending on the song.

Here are the WEDDING MUSIC and WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC songs that the bride and groom SHOULD pick out:

AT THE WEDDING (WEDDING MUSIC)

  • Guest entry music (about 15 minutes)
  • Processional (when the bridal party comes down the aisle)
  • Bridal March (bride comes down the aisle)
  • Recessional (the song the newlyweds and the bridal party exit to)

WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC

WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC

AT THE RECEPTION (WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC) the bride and groom should pick out:

  • Grand entry song
  • 1st dance
  • Father/daughter dance
  • Mother/son dance
  • Garter removal song*
  • Bouquet toss song*
  • Catchers’ song* (the people that catch the bouquet and garter)
  • Cake cutting song*
  • Last dance

*If you hired a great WEDDING DJ he/she can pick these songs for you

How to Hire a Great Wedding Photographer

How to hire a great WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

First of all let me start by saying that most brides make hiring a wedding photographer much harder than it really is! There are thousands of great WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS just waiting for your call!

How much experience do you actually have hiring a

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

We hire hundreds of WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS across the country every year. We edit hundreds of thousands of WEDDING PHOTOS taken with every brand of camera and lens combination by professional WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS. We consider ourselves very qualified to post on this subject.

Most WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS tend to label themselves with a style such as “photojournalistic” that means next to nothing to the average person who hopefully will only hire a WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER once in their lifetime.

Here are the things we look for will help you when you need to hire a WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER:

  • A professional camera with at least 16 mega pixels (less than that and your low light photos will probably be grainy)
  • Extensive knowledge of their camera
  • External flashes
  • Quality back-up cameras
  • Have done at least 100 weddings
  • Knowledge of dealing with every lighting situations
  • Lenses for both close-up and large group shots
  • HD video
  • Several batteries
  • Back-up camera cards
  • Personality
  • Ability to manage people
  • Ability to handle all of the “what ifs” that can happen at a wedding

Then we visit their website and Facebook accounts and carefully look at their photos from a professional point of view. It is amazing how many so called “professional” photographers will put low quality photos on their websites as featured photos. We also check references for brides they have photographed and check with several online sources to see if any complaints have been filed.

All “professional” photographers take good photos! If they have a good camera and know how to use it properly the results should be acceptable. The key to having great WEDDING PHOTOS is all in the editing, which is why we personally edit the WEDDING PHOTOS taken by the WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS we hire.

First you have to decide is what do you want to happen at your party?

2. If you are thinking about having an exciting dance party with great dance music and lights you need to hire a PROFESSIONAL PARTY DJ or PARTY DISC JOCKEY! PROFESSIONAL PARTY DJS or PARTY DISC JOCKEYS know exactly how to get the party moving and keep it moving right up until the very end.

WHY YOU NEED TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL

Your wedding is the most important day of your life! Consider it like a life changing surgery, two lives are being grafted into one life. Do you want to hire a rookie surgeon to perform this operation?

Your WEDDING DJ will control the entertainment of your guests for 3-5 hours of the most special day in your life. In other words your WEDDING DISC JOCKEY is responsible for 80% of the success of your celebration. So which one do you think more sense to spend more money on… your veggie platter, or your WEDDING DJ? The built in tip for your caterers… or your WEDDING DISC JOCKEY?

All brides deserve to have fantastic WEDDING DISC JOCKEYS for their celebration, but not all brides are entitled to have a great WEDDING DISC JOCKEY. What I am getting at is that you will receive exactly the value in a WEDDING DJ as what you pay. If you want a great WEDDING DISC JOCKEY then you will need to pay a great DISC JOCKEY. Don’t expect to get a great WEDDING DJ when you are paying for a CHEAP WEDDING DJ!

When you look at the time and money you have invested in your wedding doesn’t it make sense to maximize the value for your money by hiring a great WEDDING DJ that will have your guests telling you that yours was the best wedding they have ever been to?

“The price you pay for your entertainment is directly proportional to the quality of service you should expect to receive, which is directly proportional to the success of your WEDDING RECEPTION” ~Mark Ferrell~

A month after your wedding your guests are not going to remember your flowers, your dress, the food, the décor, your centerpieces, or much about the venue. What they will remember is the great time they had with the WEDDING DISC JOCKEY that you hired!

13 TIPS FOR HIRING A great wedding DJ

Verify that:

1. Your wedding DISC JOCKEY has a lot of
experience hosting weddings.
(We do thousands of weddings every year, all of our WEDDING DJS have done at least 100 weddings)

2. Your wedding DISC JOCKEY‘S system has enough power for the venue that your event is scheduled in.
(All of our systems are a minimum 350 watts per channel RMS, we have many different sized speakers)

3. That your wedding DJ will bring back-up for every crucial component of the system. (We do!)

4. That your wedding DISC JOCKEY will bring all of the music that you have requested in advance and a lot of music for requests. (and will have a 2nd copy of important wedding songs) (We have access to over 2 million songs on CD and thousands on karaoke disc)

5. That your wedding DJ has a strong voice and is the experience to MC your event.
(talk to us!)

6. That your wedding DISC JOCKEY has a back-up plan in case of sickness or any other emergency.
(we have over 500 DJs)

7. That your wedding DJ will arrive in time to be set up BEFORE your guests arrive and have music ready to play as they do. (we arrive with enough time to make a round trip to get anything we may have forgotten and still be ready to go on time!)

8. That your wedding DISC JOCKEY does not charge you for set up and tear down time.
(our price is all inclusive)

9. For events with over 200 guests your wedding DJ will have an assistant or MC. It is not possible to keep the music going non-stop and be able to handle crowd requests and manage timed events (especially wedding receptions) properly with only 1 wedding DISC JOCKEY.
(We always bring 2 or more for large events)

10. That your wedding DJ will provide a contract that includes their cancellation/reschedule policy.
(If you need to cancel just give us at least 2 weeks notice and your deposit will be applied to a future date)

11. That your wedding DISC JOCKEY is easily available by phone to help you coordinate your event planning and music selections.
(We have at least 1 person available 24 hours a day)

12. That your wedding DJ really loves doing this… if they don’t have fun… neither will you and your guests! For us it’s not all about the money, it’s all about you and your guests having the time of your lives!
(we love to entertain and it shows!)


13. That your wedding DISC JOCKEY does not have an attitude that indicates that they may be difficult to work with.
(We pride ourselves on our ability to make new friends out of your guests… once again, we love to entertain and it shows!)

 

Remember…
This is YOUR special day!!!

The WEDDING DJ is the most important part of your reception
