Wedding DJ Requirements | Complete Weddings + Events | Springfield MO

The most cringe-worthy sentence to any experienced wedding vendor is, “A friend is DJing my wedding”. Yikes. When an inexperienced friend DJs your wedding, you will end up saving some cash, but it could be at the expense of creating an epic wedding reception. DJs are the reason why wedding receptions succumb or succeed, and here are a few reasons you should consider hiring a professional wedding DJ.

Wedding DJ Requirements

First off, your DJ is responsible for running the whole reception, including equipment and lighting set-up to the toasts, cake cutting, first dances, etc. Without a professionally trained wedding DJ, you may end up with someone who just enjoys music but is inexperienced in running a wedding. Honestly, they may be completely unaware their responsibilities go far beyond just playing great music! Professional wedding DJs know how to run the reception smoothly and let you just sit back and relax.

Along with running the order of events, a DJ must command a room, so all your guests are on the same page to keep the reception moving the way it was planned. By not knowing how to take control of a wedding reception, a DJ will likely end up shoveling off the responsibility of running things over to the newlyweds. It is, after all, the couple’s special day and the pressure should not be placed on the couple to keep dinner lines, speeches, and specialty dances moving.


Power outages, weather emergencies, mix-ups with wedding vendors, uninvited guests, belligerently drunk guests… There still is no way to make wedding days immune to chaos. An experienced, professional DJ has been through many unfortunate situations and can help overcome these stressful situations with ease. This not only keeps you calm, but most of your guests will not even notice since you have someone confident in dealing with the situation.

If you get a bad cake, you have a bad cake, but if you get a bad wedding DJ, you have a bad reception. Investing in a professional DJ is well worth the money and will leave your guests bragging about your wedding reception for years to come!
