- Wedding: August 2012
We got married and we feel really sad, during our intro to the wedding party to come into the ballroom, the dj didn’t play their intro song (it was silence) and I tried to get his attention but he wasn’t looking, then when it was our turn for the bride and groom, it was also silence.
I stopped walking and pass by the Dj’s table and told him to play our intro song, instead he started playing the fast intro song for my wedding party and ours was supposed to be the slow entrance song! we ended up walking to our head table without any song playing it was so awkward and this was how our wedding reception started
During the dinner time, each time the emcee finishes speaking, there was always a long pause for the dj to continue to play some music and you can hear all of the guest talking really loud. We had to ask our best man to go up to him to tell him to play some music.
We couldn’t enjoy our night over the stress of what happened and we had to keep asking our best man and maid of honor to check on the dj, I wish all of us could have enjoyed it more.
Even for the father of the bride dance, we emailed him to tell him that it should be just 2 mins out of the entire song b/c it’s too long of a song. And he never followed our request and all of our guests got so bored of watching us dance and I felt so frustrated inside while I still have to put on a smile on my face to dance with my dad. We were not supposed to dance the entire song it was a long song which we’ve specified on the company’s website song list for our wedding day.
The worst part of it all was, we tried to do another entrance as we could change into a different outfit, we told him the song we wanted to play, it was an edited version of this song, and instead he never played the right one still. Later he told us that he didn’t have that song ready and just download the lastest version.
All that stress from the DJ, I forgot to ask my photograhper to end the night while having my guests to hold these long sparklers to light up while my husband and I walk down the dance floor and that was very important to have as a photo.
We could never repeat our wedding night, and each time I look over my wedding supplies that I have to pack away, I want to cry seeing those sparklers that I never had the chance to use b/c the entire night we all had to stress/worry over the DJ.
My maid of honor made a called during the dinner time to the owner of the music company which was the one we’ve had our consult with and he said the dj had those long pauses b/c he was just taking a break. The DJ sat there the entire time, how hard is it to pay attentiom and press the button “play”
We’ve also spoke with the DJ before the reception had started we’ve asked him if he had all the songs ready” he said and showed us papers of our emails printed and ready. So we assumed he got everything. At the end of the night we spoke with him privately to ask what happened. Then he told us some of the songs that we wanted for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd dance, he wasn’t sure what those numbers meant.
We said those were how the website have listed, we filled out the entire website forms for how each dance should be played we’ve even left detailed comments and sent it twice.
The DJ said he didn’t know there was a website that his boss had set up.
We are so sad right now… is there anything we could do for our loss? We need your advice:(
