shortbridetobe:  If you want dancing, you should hire a DJ. Their job is to not only MC the event (introducing you, announcing the first dance, etc) they read the crowd and adjust the music based on their experience as to what will keep people on the dance floor.

We debated this as well and ended up getting a DJ. I think its worth it just to take the stress and worry off. I can relax knowing our DJ will take care of music and read the crowd. If you are on a serious budget then I think you can you do it on a laptop but if you have some money it will probably be worth it just so you can relax and enjoy the night rather than worrying about having to change song.

shortbridetobe:  Absolutely recommend having a DJ.  They make introductions, introduce the music, the cake cutting, and give structure to the whole event.  If you have a day-of coordinator the two will work together to keep things on schedule too.

Our DJ made our wedding a party.  A good DJ is worth their weight in gold.  Our guy had little direction from us, did such a good job reading the crowd and kept everyone dancing most of the night.

I’m a music buff, and used to DJ (in clubs not wedding DJ) but for me, our DJ was the very first thing we sorted.  Music sets the tone and especially important if you want to have a party.

Definitely get a DJ! Our DJ was amazing, he had everyone dancing. A good DJ makes a big difference. Also it is soooo much easier to enjoy the reception when you’re not worrying about the music.

My brother said he would DJ my wedding. I would do all the work, make the playlists, timelines, get a sound system and all he has to do is push play and emcee a few things. Yesterday, less than two weeks before my wedding, he backed out. Luckily it’s slow season so I was able to find a dj on short notice. Long story short, make your life easier than I have and find a dj. Pretty much everything I have put into place to save money has fallen apart at the last minute.  Save yourself some stress.
