The Jobs and Responsibilities Of Our DJ’s And MC’s That Goes Beyond The Music
Posted on July 31, 2014 in Articles
I believe that many future brides and grooms either forgot or fail to realize the importance of having a DJ or MC that goes above and beyond not only on the night of the wedding, but also throughout the planning months leading up to the big day. I feel that this is an area of service that we excel in. With todays technology and the saturated Dj entertainment world we live in, it seems that almost anyone can press play; but is that acceptable on one of the most cherished nights of your life? The value of service that myself and the entire Elite Sound Entertainment crew provides goes far beyond preparing a play list and speaking a few words on the microphone.
While recently reading some of our reviews, emails, and feedback that many of our happy brides and grooms provide to us after their wedding, I noticed that many of them, if not all, touch on these important responsibilities that we bring to all of our weddings. Value goes beyond a price tag and the music that is played, and here are a few of the services that we excel in that many others fall short of providing.
Checking in with the Bride and Groom throughout the night
What can be worse that not having an idea or vision of how your wedding is going to flow? Keeping the bride and groom, and sometimes even the parents, update with formalities, timing, and expectations is so important to do throughout the reception. Although, we go over literally everything at the final meeting, things can change, and its our job to be prepared and keep the flow in order. Most importantly we want to make sure that our bride and groom are having the time of their life and we are exceeding their expectations.
Working with, and helping all your vendors
The saying “happy wife, happy life” translates to us as DJ’s and MC’s as well. If photographers, videographers, and the maitre d are all working together and happy, then the night will flow without any unneeded issues. Long before guest arrive into the reception room, we game plan with your vendors. We inform the photographer and videographer if there will be a spotlight for the first dance so they can adjust their camera’s. We let them know what formalities are taken place and the expected times. We help them plug into our equipment if they need audio. We make sure they are in place when we start intros and other formalities. We also work very closely with the maitre d to line up the bridal party for introductions, understand when meals are being served, and properly time dance sets along with many other things.
Being responsive to your questions and concerns leading up to your wedding
When the stress of planning a wedding begins to weigh down on you we are here to help with ideas and suggestions. Many of my brides and grooms are young, and in many cases working to establish their future while planning a wedding that they know nothing about. Providing ideas and responding as quick as possible will put everyone at ease. Along with our office manager Debbie and your DJ or MC, our entire staff can help answer questions regarding music, production and video montages, photo booths, and other services that you might be in the dark about.
Trusting us and learning your style
Every wedding we do is different from the next and our goal is to make your wedding unique to your style. It starts when we first meet and we ask you about your music preferences and your visions for your wedding. Your style in music and the ideas that you have are the blueprints to your wedding. By the time your wedding approaches we will have a great understanding of what you are looking for, and from their we want you to enjoy yourself and trust us as professionals.
Although our talent as DJ’s and MC’s far exceeds many, we understand the importance of providing service from start to finish. I enjoy getting to know my brides and grooms, and by being prepared, organized, understanding, and going above and beyond your needs we can help make your dream wedding possible
