Getting your music right is something we feel very passionate about.
We know it’s one of the most important things a couple consider when choosing a Hampshire Wedding DJ.
A Great Place To Start
Music at a wedding reception is one of the things guests remember about the day so it’s important to get it right.
But it’s also worth remembering music is subjective, divides opinion and often couples themselves have very different tastes.
So where do you begin with making sure you and your guests have a great evening?
Start by finding a DJ who understands about emotional connections.
Songs have the ability to take you to a different time and place.
It’s why you feel amazing when a song comes on the radio which reminds you of leaving school, your first car, a teenage holiday abroad with your mates or messy university nights out.
Music from the decade spanning your mid-teens to early 20s has the ability to make time travellers of all of us.
It’s a great place to start when putting your party playlist together especially if a lot of your guests shared your life during this period of your life.
The Party Tunes You Want
Many mobile DJs don’t understand emotional connections.
They turn up with the same list of songs they’ve used for years and cannot understand why fewer people are dancing each year.
We’ve all been to “those” kind of weddings and its fear of their own turning into one which has seen more couples turning to bands in the last few years. They provide a set list so a bride and groom have complete control over what music they will hear.
Bands are considerably more expensive than a DJ and you really don’t need to spend that much to get the party tunes you want.
Dedicate Some Time To Find A Good DJ
A DJ who will :
Play all the songs you’ve requested in advance and is comfortable playing YOUR music even if it’s unfamiliar to them.
Follow YOUR brief because they care about customer satisfaction.
Put YOUR happiness in front of their own gratification.
Let’s break those points down in more detail.
Providing a list of requests to a DJ in advance is often no guarantee you will hear them on the night.
The DJ may avoid them because the tracks are unfamiliar and they will take them out of their comfort zone. This is their problem not yours.
Neither is a DJ failing to source requests in advance if you gave them a list. Your expectation is those songs will be available on the night.
Understanding trends is important. We don’t just mean downloading the entire top 20.
Knowing why certain older songs are popular again and the themed club nights enjoyed by the couple and their friends.
Those nights will have created positive emotional connections to songs outside of their formative years.
Putting Your Happiness First
The final point above about putting your happiness first is the most important. You’ve hired the DJ to do a job.
It could be the job is to give everyone a really good night and you’ve granted them full creative freedom.
Or it could be you only want a certain genre of music and have a specific list of songs you only want them to play.
Some DJs struggle with this. They have the mindset of a club DJ whose sole objective is to make everyone dance.
A good wedding DJ will follow your brief not their own personal satisfaction in pursuit of a full dancefloor.
That’s what makes us one of the most popular and recommended Hampshire Wedding DJ teams.
