Limousine Napa • Napa Valley Wedding DJ

You will find that your wedding will undoubtedly be the most important and magical night of your life if you have planned it out properly and if you are organized enough. It is extremely important to make sure that every single aspect of your wedding is planned to the tee, and that no stone is left unturned during the planning process. One incredibly important aspect of the wedding planning process is ensuring that you pick the right music for this event. You need to be absolutely sure that the music that you have playing at your reception and your ceremony fit your personal style, and ensures that your guests are thoroughly entertained throughout the course of the event. A fantastic way to ensure that you have a fantastic form of musical entertainment is to hire a professional wedding DJ to perform at your event. This is a wonderful, cost effective, and time tested way to ensure that your wedding is high energy and that your guests are always having a great time. However, you shouldn't just hire the first person that you know is willing to do the job, especially since everyone has that one nephew who fancies himself an expert DJ. You need to set a certain level of standards for yourself before picking your wedding DJ.

It should come as no surprise that not all DJs are created equally. If you want to find a good, quality DJ that is going to do an excellent job, you are going to have to pay a little bit more to make sure that all goes well, and while the idea of paying more money when you are already spending so much money on the wedding seems like a dreadful prospect, trust us when we say that it is well worth it in order to make sure that the wedding reception is a whole lot of fun and that your guests are dancing all night long.

The very first thing that you need to do once you have researched and found the perfect DJ for your wedding reception is begin an open and honest dialogue with them about what your expectations are for them, and make sure that they understand that this is your night, and their ego can not get in the way. Remember to not be rude about it, but this is extremely important. They need to commit to memory the songs that you absolutely do not want on the playlist for the night, and they also need to make sure to play the songs that you must have played. Of course, it is important to be flexible, as each DJ has their own style and has their ways of making sure that the crowd gets excited and warmed up, and it would actually be counter productive to disrupt that flow sometimes, but you definitely need to set boundaries.

You also need to make sure that the professional DJ has all of the bases covered, and that you have gone over the whole ceremony and reception with him. You need to make sure that he knows the songs that you want to have played prior to the ceremony, the prelude music, the music for the mothers walking down the aisle, the bride's processional song, and the music for the recessional. You also need to make sure that they know what songs you want played during the cocktail pre-entrance, the song for the entrance, the song for the first dance, and beyond. You also need to be clear on whether you will let the DJ take request or not for the reception, but it is often a bad idea to not let the guests of your reception request songs. Remember to give the DJ your playlist at least ninety days before the event so you can be sure that nothing goes wrong.

Hiring a professional DJ for your wedding is a fantastic option that you will certainly not regret, but you need to make sure that you have properly planned every aspect of this experience or else you will run into a whole litany of problems.
