With many things in life, you get a second chance. Unfortunately, your wedding is not one of those things. You only get one chance to make your big day everything you’ve always dreamed it could be.
Today, some couples choose a DIY reception and invite a friend to use an iPod and a rented sound system instead of hiring a professional wedding DJ. Because of the expense incurred in a wedding, it is understandable why this can be tempting. There are many ways to save money during a wedding and reception, but in my opinion, a low quality DJ/MC is not one of them.
You only get one chance to make your big day everything you’ve always dreamed it could be.
The truth is that your reception will take up the majority of your wedding night, and it will be the last thing your guests remember most about your wedding. A DJ/MC can make or break the biggest day of your life. Cutting costs here is simply not worth it.
Having a friend MC your wedding reception is fraught with peril, because a great event is more than equipment and music; great weddings are made possible by the talent that a qualified professional brings to the most important event of your life. A professional DJ not only makes you and your guests comfortable but also guides and communicates with your other wedding vendors (caterer, photographer, officiant, coordinator, etc.) to keep the event smooth and stress-free.
A friend with an iPod can play music, but countless married couples could tell you that only an experienced and professional DJ/MC can provide customized planning and expertise, both before and during the wedding, and also serve as an organizer and event host.
A DJ/MC can make or break the biggest day of your life. Cutting costs here is simply not worth it.
More troubling, even some so-called professional DJs are not all that professional. A friend of mine recently got married in another state. After he got back from his honeymoon, he told me that his wedding DJ played the wrong recessional music at the end of the ceremony and then gave little guidance to the guests during the various parts of the reception. The guests were confused and annoyed, and his new bride held back tears when she expressed how angry and disappointed she was that all of her planning was overshadowed by the DJ’s incompetence.
On your wedding day, you shouldn’t have to think about anything but your love for each other, and a professional DJ/MC takes the stress off of you. You can rest assured that your wedding day will be amazing.
