Wedding DJ/MC

Music is one of the most important ingredients to a successful wedding
reception. No two weddings are the same and the music requirement for
every one is different. That is why it is important to choose someone with
a vast music database and the knowledge to use it effectively during the
different phases of the reception. The playlist is never the same twice. We
do not use a stock playlist or set up a dinner music CD and walk away.
We will talk with you and deliver the music presentation you desire for
your wedding. Every type of music is available and nearly any song you
can think of too! We can even set aside a list of songs you DO NOT want
to hear. This event is your event and should have the music you want
played.

Below we have a Wedding DJ Checklist. These are the things to
coordinate with the DJ ahead of time to make sure the event goes as
planned and your happiest celebration ends on a high note. While we
recommend the use of a professional wedding planner you can use this
along with other tools to make planning your wedding reception much
easier!
