The Truth About Wedding DJ’s & Entertainment
I have been DJ’n weddings since 2003 and every year I learn more and more about it. In 2007 I decided it was a good idea to make wedding entertainment my career. Over the years I’ve been able to build one of the most reputable companies in the Northwest alongside my business partner Neal and our wonderful staff of DJs. Over the last 8 years we’ve DJ’d close to 1,300 weddings and we’ve learned one thing: Not everyone or every DJ can be a wedding entertainer. There is a huge difference.
Couples looking for a wedding DJ need to keep a couple things in mind as this information should help you look at our job a lot differently. First, I don’t like the term “DJ”. By calling yourself a DJ your limiting yourself to a guy that can only play music. A lotta DJs I’ve seen make a preset playlist before they even get to a venue or bar and that playlist is exactly what they will play regardless of how the crowd is responding to them. Trust me I’ve seen it. These DJs are the ones that struggle at weddings because they don’t really know music like they should. We aren’t DJs. We’ll let the club DJs have that title.
So what are we?
We’re Entertainment directors. Being a DJ is just a small part of what we do at a wedding or big corporate event. We provide so much more then just “playing music” that the term “DJ” does not adequately encompass the diverse services that we are able to offer. We take on many additional roles that add up to your event’s overall success such as:
*Planning and music editing
*Leadership and help with layout
*Announcements and day of coordination.
The most important aspect though is we serve as your Master of Ceremonies the entire night to assure your wedding flows smoothly without a single hitch. Our Wedding Planning Form on our site is perfect for organization and helps us run a wedding flawlessly.
We as the Entertainment Director of your wedding will plan your celebration in advance to get you to the point where you can relax and just have a good time, knowing that all the preparation has already been done. What bride wants to worry about telling the Catering Manager when to pour the champagne? What groom wants to worry about where to dim the lights for the first dance? What mother-in-law wants to worry about the order and announcements of all special dances and events? What best man wants to wonder when he is supposed to give the toast? What couple wants to worry about micromanaging their own wedding? If you prefer to have someone make professional announcements, keep to the order of events, and keep all your guests informed then choose an Entertainment Director over a DJ every time to assist you on your big day.
I promise if you choose reliable wedding entertainment for your big day you will love yourself for it. The DJ you hire will make or break one of the biggest days of your life, and that’s why people need to take the hiring of this vendor way more seriously. We at RMF Entertainment coordinate and organize every wedding we do to the standards that you desire.
