A ballroom reception twinkling with polished silverware… A handful of close friends and family at a casual backyard ceremony… An intimate elopement on the crest of a mountain a-looking the glowing sunset sky…
Despite attendance, music creates a lasting, audible photograph in one’s mind.
While toasting delicate champagne glasses and twirling in your glass slippers, music sets mood and ambience throughout your special night. It has the power to lift both young and old to their feet, and bring guests and loved ones together. While waltzing around for your first dance is traditional, it cannot continue all night. Once people finish delectable desserts and shimmy their way to the dance floor, your party will be unforgettable.
DJs make this happen. Like magicians, they have an abundance of skills in their repertoire to create the best personal experience for your wedding. To the uneducated music lover, DJs may look like they’re spinning knobs and scratching records on a turntable. But, they’re really blending, cross-fading, and pitch-locking tunes for optimal performance and enjoyment. Though, with technique put aside, DJs secretly have a trick up their sleeve.
Reading the Crowd
The best-kept DJ secret is the ability to read the crowd. Among your life-long friends will be your parents and loved-ones – who may want to groove to classic rock as well as dance to top-40 pop all night long. DJs have the ability to recognize guests mood by watching for bobbing heads and tapping toes during different tunes. They can tell the crowd needs a breather after a fun and fast-paced song. They know when guests need a pick-me-up after desserts sugar crash. Listening for laughter and seeing bright smiles are tell-tale signs of enjoyment – especially when children request their favourite song with a gleaming smile from cheek to cheek. DJs who accept requests on the fly are highly admired – by both the bride and groom, and their guests. After all, it is all about having a good time!
