Here are the 3 Big Chicago Wedding DJ Myths and how to avoid a Wedding Disaster. The weather has changed a lot here in the last two weeks. But what doesn’t change are the questions couples ask when planning their wedding.
The 3 Big Chicago Wedding DJ Myths
Myth #1 The DJ Talks Funny
First of all, the DJ is your voice at your wedding.
Because you want them to say the right things. You don’t really want a DJ who has a bad speaking voice. You want them to sound normal, and inviting, with the appropriate MC skills.
With the right presentation (planned by you) your guests will listen.
Myth #2 The DJ Will Play Too Cheesy Music
Another one of The 3 Big Chicago Wedding DJ Myths is about what the DJ plays.
You’ve probably heard about the wedding where a DJ played the wrong music with cringe-worthy results.
One persons cheesy music is another persons party jam.
So, you should have a clear & easy way to choose what music the DJ plays. Thus, the need for you to have solid request list that will get you (AND your party people) up and dancing all night long. Here’s a great way.
See this about choosing songs.
Myth #3 A DJ Is A Money Saver
As you know a good DJ has tremendous amount of time playing and practicing. This gives them skill, training, and thus ability. Did you know it takes 10,000 plus hours to master a skill?
How many events does the DJ you’re considering perform a year?
How long have they been in the wedding business?
If an average event is 5 hours long and the majority of the DJs performance time is 3 hours per event (not including the countless hours of training, practice, and prep before an event).
Multiply the 3 hours x the number of events per year x the number of years in business. This will give you an idea of how experienced they are.
But there’s more. If the DJ has been doing the SAME thing at each of their events, that they did 10 YEARS AGO then what you are getting is a stale, unimagined, boring presentation. The same WORDs, the same SONGS, nothing REAL!
Training as an MC, experience as a Mixologist, being able to perform in front of large audiences.
Without ego games, a DJ needs to have the right presentation and performance skills. Finally, it’s up to you and how you feel about the way they will represent YOU at your wedding celebration.
This level of expertise is worth every penny and will pay you in the best memories for years to come.
