When planning a wedding, you need music for the dance. Bands are expensive, and DJs are often a more flexible option. It can, though, be tempting to hire a friend who has a mixer deck or somebody who mostly does karaoke.
The thing is? If your Bay Area wedding DJ is not enthusiastic and able to read the mood of the room, the dance is likely to fall flat. You need a professional who is used to doing weddings and enjoys doing them. A DJ who comes over as loving their job will spark the enthusiasm of others. They will also have the skill needed to help you select the right music for your tastes and your guest list, and have a good chance of having all of your favorite songs to keep the evening lively.
You need a DJ who will work with you and your wedding planner to ensure the timeline runs smoothly, who will be on time (even ahead of time) and reliable, and who will stay in communication with you. Too many DJ services will do the initial talk then that will be the last you hear of them until the day, with emails and calls going unanswered. Too many, too, offer only a one size fits all approach, putting in the songs you want for the couple and father-daughter dance and then going into a standard wedding repertoire that may not be to your taste or that of most of your guests.
Your DJ has to love their job in order to give you the wedding dance you will love and remember for the rest of your lives. Look for an enthusiastic expert who focuses on doing weddings and you will get the service you deserve for the best day of your life.
