Great Tips to Ensure You Get Maximum Wedding Entertainment Value for Your Money

Great Tips to Ensure You Get Maximum Wedding Entertainment Value for Your Money

When it comes to coordinating your wedding, every penny counts.  With all of the money you’ll spend on the venue, food, flowers and decorations, not to mention the cost of your dress and tuxedo, it’s a wonder you’ll have any kind of budget left over to fund your entertainment.  But it’s the music, the dancing and the engaging activities that most of your guests will remember long after your big day has passed which is why it is so important that you do everything you can to maximize the value of the money you spend booking your wedding entertainment.  Here are some great tips to guide you along:


Tip #1 – Pay Only One Performer – When you hire a band with two or more members, that’s two or more people who are counting on you to pay them enough to make the gig worth their while.  It’s also two or more people you are relying on to be punctual, healthy and ready to perform the moment your first guest arrives at your reception.  Band members will also require food, drinks and frequent breaks that limit their overall performance time.   Therefore it is wise to hire one talented person who can keep the music coming with minimal fuss and a professional wedding disc jockey can do that and so much more.


Tip #2 – Customize One Complete Package – Along with the cost savings associated with hiring a single performer, you’re sure to benefit from the great many talents and unique services the best wedding DJs have to offer.  Engaging personalities, extensive knowledge of music spanning decades and genres and the ability to read a crowd and keep everyone dancing are just a few of the qualities you’d expect from any great DJ.   But nowadays, quality DJs are offering so much more than that, including slide show and video narration, uplighting, photo booths, multi-lingual capabilities and so much more.   And all of it can be bundled up into one complete DJ package at a huge savings over hiring each of these services individually. 


Tip #3 – Consult the Pros – When it comes to coordinating your wedding, time is often just as tight as your budget, so you’ll want to head straight for the professionals.  Conducting a simple Google search for reputable talent agencies specializing in providing professional wedding DJs in your area is the smartest way to start.  Focus on the agencies who appear on the first one or two pages of your search as these are likely to be the most popular and dependable organizations, but be wary of agencies that haven’t been in business for very long and don’t allow you to easily search for DJs based on location, services and price point or don’t provide enough of a profile of each of their DJs to give you a true sense of the talent they represent.  Once you’ve found a terrific DJ, you can customize your ideal wedding entertainment package to fit your budget.
