Do I Need a DJ?


Visual details take up so much planning effort that many couples forget about the importance of sound and entertainment on their big day. If you’re thinking, ‘Do I really need a DJ for my wedding?’, then we have an honest answer for you! 

When does the Wedding DJ shine?

The reception dance party is usually when your DJ is the star, but there may be other times you need their services:

Before the wedding ceremony

Before you say “I Do” and kiss, the space full of empty seats should feel welcoming and pleasant for your guests. Music is a powerful way to set the mood. Imagine your DJ is creating the overture for the rest of your wedding day.

While walking down the aisle

You can use the traditional wedding tune to blend with your special song and set the tone of your best day! Our Detroit DJs will know the perfect time to transition between songs along with your entrances. 

During cocktail hour

When you leave your guests to sip and mingle and go off with the photographer to shoot your portraits, you want the festive atmosphere to keep going even when you’re not there.

At dinner

While your guests are waiting for food to arrive, our DJs can provide them with song request slips. We understand that some folks have songs to share, but not enough courage to express that verbally. With song request slips, guests are able to participate in the party and make your day even more special.

Once dancing begins

Our DJs know you may have a favorite song, artist, or genre. We will ensure that whatever you want to hear gets played at the appropriate time. Your DJ is able to filter out songs you may not want or expect from your guests and still provide high-quality music.

What to expect from your Wedding DJ

Do I need a DJ for my wedding if I already have made a music playlist?

Trust us; you don’t want to leave this job to YouTube or Spotify. The wedding DJ will not only play the music you chose but also energize the crowd and maintain the vibe throughout the whole reception.

You might think – I won’t hire a DJ for my wedding, it is a small reception, and my father-in-law has enough party experience to take over the music. We’ve seen this scenario many times, and we know it is smarter to save on other items and expenses than to make a loved one do a duty that a professional could seamlessly provide. 

Why would I pay for something I can do myself?

When you book a DJ with us, you get multiple years of experience and knowledge as a professional DJ. You get high-quality equipment and someone with the know-how to operate it. As an Emcee, your DJ will guide you through the evening, relieving you of that burden and making sure you only have fun!
