Your Wedding DJ: To Take Requests or Not Take Requests?

Your Wedding DJ: To Take Requests or Not Take Requests?

When hiring a DJ for an event, you may assume you have to fill out a playlist for the entire span of the event, but that’s not true. DJs will help create a playlist but will leave space for additions, and often, a DJ will allow you to decide whether or not to permit guests to request songs during the event. It’s not required, and it’s not uncommon for the hosts to choose to leave this option off the table. However, there may be a benefit to allowing your guests to take things into their own hands.

 

Requesting music that guests want to hear can help keep the party going. Maybe there is a fan favorite that hasn’t been played, and it’s just what everyone needed to get out on the dance floor. Or maybe everyone wants to see your cousin break down to a high school throwback! If you feel anxious about leaving the song choices up to your guests, you can always provide the DJ with a “do not play” list. This will allow you some control over the types of songs being played while still being flexible enough to give your guests a say!

 

Another idea is to leave a space on the RSVP for song requests. Then, as RSVPs come flooding in, you can take inventory of the requested songs and compile a list for your DJ. Keep in mind that only a few slow songs are necessary, so filter out some of those and stick with the upbeat music for a more lively evening! 

 

Allowing guests to provide music suggestions can offer additional fun and variety to an already great event. And your DJ will do everything in their power to engage with the audience, recognizing that sometimes it does take the crowd’s input to keep the party going. 

 

If you allow your guests to request songs, trust that your DJ can use their expertise to determine whether it will go over well with the crowd as a whole. Hiring a DJ who will understand your style and keep your evening on track is one of the most significant benefits of working with HD Entertainment. We take your suggestions to heart and create the best possible atmosphere for your big day!

The Difference between a DJ and an Emcee

The Difference Between a DJ and an Emcee

When you find yourself planning a wedding or any other big event, you likely have heard the titles DJ and emcee used interchangeably. This can confuse you because they are actually two very different jobs. For your next event to be one talked about for years, you need to make the right decisions about the music. So let’s explore the difference between a DJ and an emcee.

 

What is a DJ?

Traditionally a DJ is a professional who handles the music. Make note that we said professional. Sure, anyone can have a family member play some poor-quality mp3s at your event. They also probably do so on equally poor-quality equipment. However, when it comes to your event’s entertainment level, a DJ can make or break it. A professional DJ plays the right songs at the right time, mixes music, and takes requests from guests. One essential tip is to be involved in the initial music selection process. Make sure the DJ has a general understanding of what your attendees like. You’ll want to give the DJ some freedom to choose music, but it is helpful for them to know what you and your guests want to listen or dance to. 

 

What is an Emcee?

An emcee, particularly at wedding receptions, is responsible for the program. An experienced emcee will handle all announcements for the day. They will also keep guests active and entertained for two reasons. First, a good emcee will excite your guests and keep the party rolling. Second, they’ll ensure your guests know what is next on the schedule. They direct traffic, so to speak, so that everyone knows what is next and where they need to be. A good emcee makes you look good. After all, this is your event!

 

Who do I need?

Depending upon the size of your event, you may need two people. In some cases, for smaller events, one may suffice. The key is to have a conversation with whomever you are looking at hiring for your event. Find what they are capable of doing. If they can provide credentials and some testimonials from previous clients, they may be a good fit for what you need. 

 

Ask around

Choosing the DJ or emcee for your event is a HUGE decision. Don’t be afraid to check in with friends to see who they used for their own events. Compile a list of potential choices and talk to all of them. One person to leave off the list? That one friend or family member who offers to do the event for little to nothing. You will regret it in the long run.

How Many Months in Advance Should I Book a Wedding DJ?

How Many Months in Advance Should I Book a Wedding DJ?

 

While there is no set rule on how early you should begin booking wedding vendors, we often go with the phrase “the sooner, the better!” The pandemic has only exemplified the trend for longer engagements. Couples are now taking an average of 18 months to 2 years to plan for their big day. Even though couples are waiting longer to get married, they often have plans set far in advance, so it’s best to start as soon as possible!

 

Most engaged couples begin booking between 9-12 months before the wedding. This means they’ve already researched and selected their top candidates. If you don’t have a vendor in mind, take a few weeks to compare options and make a list of your desired services/expectations. If you already have a DJ in mind, it’s still important to consider which packages and pricing fit your needs before reaching out for their availability. 

 

Another thing that may impact how far in advance to book a DJ is when you need one – the day of the week and month of the year will be a significant factor. Wedding season is considered April through October, and Saturdays during those months book much faster than other times of the year (or days of the week). If you’re planning a shorter engagement, consider a Friday wedding or choosing a month outside of that window. This is especially true if your top DJ pick is already booked for another time.

 

Finally, consider for how long you’ll need the DJ. DJs can book events that are shorter but may interfere with availability during the rest of the day. So if you’re looking for a DJ to run your ceremony and reception, it’s best to try to book further out. That way, they have an appropriate amount of time blocked off in their schedule.

 

Your wedding day should be exactly what you want it to be, and your DJ should want to do everything they can to help make it special, so be sure to choose a good one!

How Much Does a Wedding DJ Cost?

How Much Does a Wedding DJ Cost?

 

When it comes to hiring a DJ for your wedding, there are several things to consider regarding what it might cost. As with any vendor, DJs will charge varying prices depending on the packages available and the client’s desired outcome. Most DJs are willing to modify packages to meet client expectations, but it may come with additional fees! As we go through a list of things to consider, take some time to jot down your thoughts, so you have a clear idea of what you want.

 

Though DJs don’t exactly work on an hourly salary, one of the most significant things to consider about the cost is the amount of time the DJ is needed. For example, when hiring a DJ for a wedding, it is likely cheaper to hire a DJ for just the reception instead of for the ceremony and reception. Knowing and understanding the timeline for the event will help you determine how long you will need a DJ and potentially help you save a significant amount of money. Be mindful of set up and tear down times, as well. While some DJs include this time in their packages, others don’t.

 

Many couples do not understand the planning many vendors, including DJs, put in before even arriving on site for the event. Playlists, final calls, suggestions for couples, selecting music with the couple, and many other things need to be factored into the time you’re paying for. It’s much more than a few hours on the wedding day!

 

Also, consider any odd-on services you might need. Everything from monogram lighting to dancing on a cloud will likely cost a little bit more than a basic package. While these enhancements bring a fun element to the party, they will increase your budget. If you already know these are non-negotiables for your event, plan a little extra wiggle room for your DJ costs!

 

And lastly, when you hire a DJ, one of the most worthy things to spend money on is their experience. Hiring a DJ with years of experience will not only ensure your party goes all night long it will also mean less worry on your end. Experienced DJs might cost more, but they have greater knowledge in troubleshooting things! Equipment malfunction? An experienced DJ can keep you and your guests from even realizing there’s a problem!

 

At HD Entertainment, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality, experienced DJs for any event! Check out our website for packages and DJ biographies to get to know us a little bit more!

 

Hiring a DJ?

Hiring a DJ?

 

If we had one piece of advice to give to someone who needs to hire a DJ it would be to research, research, research. A good DJ can take an event from mundane to major hit! However, there are so many different styles and options available, and not every DJ will be able to make your vision come to life. We’ll explore what to look for in a DJ for your event.

 

First, make sure to talk to potential DJs! Personality plays a huge role in setting the mood for your event. A DJ should be able to express the desired feel of the occasion through music and engagement with the audience. To get to know a DJ better, ask questions about their career or even their hobbies. Why did they become a DJ? What they do in their free time will tell you a lot about who they are and whether they will be a good fit for your event.

 

Next, understand how they will build a playlist!

 

  • Will they stay strict to the songs chosen by the host or will they add in songs as well?
  • Will they be making all of the announcements at the event?
  • How will they handle song requests from attendees?
  • Will they add in any of their own games/activities?
  • Do they have enough music to keep people dancing all night long?

 

Asking questions like this will uncover more about how the event will go and keep both parties aware of expectations.

 

Finally, read through the contract. Yes, that seems obvious, but knowing timelines, cost, and potential add-ons will give you a full picture of what packages are available. The contract should provide a rough timeline including set-up and tear-down so the venue can be informed. It should also include if any additional meetings are required before the event to finalize playlists and timelines. Additionally, the contract should have a record of all add-ons needed such as up-lighting, custom monogram, and lights for the dance floor. Many DJ companies offer additional tech to enhance the atmosphere. The options are endless! All that’s needed is a DJ to make it all come together.

Hire a Wedding DJ in Harrisburg, PA

Hire a Wedding DJ in Harrisburg, PA

 

Inexpensive modern technology has opened up a new world in the past decade making it easy for anyone to market themselves as a DJ. However, there are many reasons why one should seek out an experienced professional wedding DJ including avoiding disaster on your big day. Here are a few things to look for when you hire a wedding DJ in Harrisburg, PA.

 

Skills

There’s so much more to being a wedding DJ than pushing the button to a preset track. A truly skilled and experienced DJ knows how to use the proper equipment. It takes experience to understand how to implement balance, equalizers and mixing. Add to that a knowledge of song selection and progression through the event and a DJ has their hands full. You probably wouldn’t know that, and that’s the way it should be. A DJ with great skills allows the music to move the crowd. Anything less is the perfect storm for a crash and burn at your event.

 

Wedding experience

Sure, you could get a family member to load up a few songs on their laptop and play some music. (Often those songs are not legally sourced, but that’s a whole other story!) The DJ not only plays the music but also serves as your event emcee. They keep the party flowing. A DJ with vast wedding experience will know the wedding reception trends and can help your reception flow smoothly.

 

Knowledge of music

The best and most experienced wedding DJs are essentially walking music libraries. They have an uncanny superpower of knowing almost every album and track that has ever been released. They take great pride in knowing what remixes. Why does this matter? Because they will know what music best fits your crowd. They can read the crowd, understand the music they react to, and tailor the song selection list to match their taste. This is an invaluable skill to keep your reception attendees engaged and having the time of their lives.

 

All about YOU

A great wedding DJ knows that wedding receptions are not cookie-cutter events. Whatever you have in mind, you should get, and a good DJ will accommodate your wishes. In saying that, if you have a potentially embarrassing idea, they will gently lead you in a different direction. The best wedding DJs will help navigate you through choices relative to reception flow, music, and working with your venue.

Why Every Bride Should Attend a Bridal Show

Why Every Bride Should Attend a Bridal Show

Does wedding planning feel like it will never end? Does it scare you so much that you don’t even want to begin? While the process can be overwhelming, there are so many resources available to help ease the stress of planning and executing your big day. One of the most helpful resources available to new brides are bridal shows. These events incorporate vendors for every need from catering to DJs to florals and more. We hope by the end of this article you will want to sign up for your first bridal show (or second, third, and fourth)!

 

What to expect

Bridal shows are often held at event venues so they can fit a variety of vendors into one space. Expect to see an ocean of fabrics, flowers, lighting, and desserts. Each vendor is there to show off their best products/services for you to get an idea of how it could work for you and your big day. Take advantage of the convenience of having everything in one place by attending bridal shows in your area.

At many bridal shows, vendors are prepared to have you book and pay deposits to hold your spot, but don’t let that scare you. If you’re not at that point in planning you do not have to book anything until you’re sure it’s what you want. If you’re just there to window shop just let the vendors know you’re simply gathering information!

Benefits

One of the biggest reasons we recommend attending bridal shows is to get inspired and really dig into what options are available. Although many brides think they know exactly what they want, it may surprise themselves after seeing what’s out there. Vendors will showcase different styles and options available for their specific product or service. After all, every couple is different and they’ll be looking for different things for their wedding day.

Another benefit to attending bridal shows is to compare costs. Gathering pricing information can be overwhelming and confusing over the phone or online. Speaking directly to vendors about their wedding packages will give you an idea of what is offered and at what cost. Some bridal shows run competitions for attendees where prizes are awarded. Many times prizes include discounts on vendor services or bridal accessories for the big day. We know that weddings can get pricey, so being able to comparison shop will allow you to really get the most bang for your buck!

Finally, bridal shows are an opportunity for you to immerse yourself in the idea that you are a BRIDE. This is an exciting time that shouldn’t be overlooked! Enjoy the moment as everyone tries to help you have the best possible experience. Enjoy every taste test and floral arrangement coming your way because at the end of the day, your wedding is all about YOU (and your future groom, of course).

 

We hope to see you at an upcoming show! And when it comes to choosing the entertainment for your wedding, we hope you’ll check out some of the awesome packages at HD Entertainment.

 

The “Real Cost” of a Wedding DJ

The “Real Cost” of a Wedding DJ

 

If you’re in the middle of planning a wedding, you know that the cost of essentials like decorations, catering, and entertainment varies by place and vendor. Of course, you don’t want to break the bank but you don’t want to have a “below average” wedding either by choosing the cheapest options.

The most important “big ticket” areas on which to focus your budget are the venue space, the alcohol and food catering, and the DJ. There are a ton of DJs in the Adams/York County area, so how do you choose? And how much do they cost?

The average cost of a wedding DJ in our area is $1,300. Realistically, you could see professional DJs charging anywhere between $800-$4,500 depending on the type of setup you wish to have for your guests (add-ons, lighting, photo booths, etc). We want to share with you the real cost of a wedding DJ because we don’t want you to blow your budget. Keep reading to find out what to expect from DJs at varying price points.

 

What Does a Wedding DJ Cost?

Time, money, and resources are what set apart a budget-friendly DJ from a full-time professional DJ. Professional DJs spend more time and put more money into their sets and equipment while more cost-friendly DJs may just use DJing on the side as an extra source of income. Here’s what various prices likely indicate when it comes to the expertise of the DJ:

 

Cost-Friendly DJ: Under $1000

There’s nothing wrong with checking the cheapest-priced DJs for certain events, but it might not be the right option for your wedding. Let’s face it, wedding receptions are mostly centered around the music and couples count on the DJ to act as an emcee to keep the ball rolling.

This price might make sense if you have a friend who is a DJ and she’s giving you her services at a discounted price as a wedding gift. Often wedding DJs in this price range are testing the waters and they might not have as much experience with weddings. Don’t forget that most venues require a business license and insurance, so be sure to see all documentation of this from a DJ.

 

Middle Ground DJ: $1,100- $1,500

The average cost of a wedding DJ in the U.S. is just between the prices above. In this bracket, DJs have slightly more experience, but more than likely are still DJing part-time. Since they probably have another full-time job, they might not have as much time to prepare for your wedding as someone who DJs full-time.

Keep in mind that all DJs have to start somewhere. You could find a stellar DJ in this category who is working on getting her name out there. Keep researching reviews and ask questions before signing any contracts.

 

“This is my career” DJ: $1,500- $4,500

There is a reason couples pay this much. From the hours the DJs put into preparing for a wedding to the wide range of services they offer, this is truly the full package. DJs in this price range are professionals, experienced, and committed to making sure the day meets your expectations.

This DJ will spend hours upon hours putting together music selections with your recommendations, answer questions thoroughly, and absolutely kill it as your emcee. They likely have all the venue’s favored and required qualifications, licenses, and insurance.

 

Additional Costs

The prices above are only a fraction of what you could end up paying if you are looking for additional things such as special lighting and photo booths. Be sure to compare DJ services and reviews to their prices before deciding if they fit your budget. We don’t recommend settling for the so-so DJ because you wanted the laser light show.

The costs above are only guidelines. Depending on where you live, prices differ. There are amateur DJs that overcharge and quality hidden gems who undercharge. It is important to do your research, interview DJs, and ask questions to figure out if one is your perfect match!

 

The “Real Cost” Isn’t in Dollars

The real cost of a quality DJ isn’t the number on the check you hand over once the contract is signed. A quality DJ costs what they are worth, but it’s what they are doing on the backend that separates an average DJ from a great one. There’s a lot of time, resources, and commitment that go into the preparation of professional DJs.

 

Time

Undeniably, a professional DJ will take 10-30 hours to prepare for a single wedding, whereas a hobbyist may only spend about 5 hours. She will take the time to get to know you and your soon-to-be spouse, to get a feel for who you are as individuals, and to learn about your music tastes. This interview process makes it much easier for a DJ to create a schedule and stay on track (every professional will do this).

 

Resources

DJs do much more than just throw together a mix of songs on a playlist. Experienced DJs know what equipment is the very best and set aside time to learn how to master it, as well as learn new techniques to mix music so there aren’t any awkward pauses between songs.

 

Loyalty

When you hire someone who DJs as a side gig, you are sharing time with the other priorities in his life. When something comes up with his full-time job while preparing for your big day, or worse ON your big day, which do you think he’ll choose – your wedding that’s a side gig or the day job that pays the majority of his bills? It’s a no-brainer to pay a bit more for a DJ that commits her time and energy to be present on your wedding day.

 

The Value vs The Price

We understand how important it is to set and stick to your wedding budget. It’s great to save a buck where you can, but when it comes to a DJ, don’t settle for less. After all, you are throwing the most important party of your life!

The cost of a DJ is only a piece of the puzzle. What is included in that number and what will the DJ provide for your special day? The “real cost” isn’t the numerical value, but the best value for your dollar.

 

HD Entertainment hosts a team of extremely talented professionals who are fun and love to bring special moments to life. There is no event too big or too small. Let us make your day magical. Contact us today to talk about your dream wedding.

 

5 Reasons to Hire a Professional DJ For Your Corporate Party

5 Reasons to Hire a Professional DJ For Your Corporate Party

When it comes to corporate events, business owners want to show off their company in the best way possible. From the venue to the catering, to the music and atmosphere, all these factors work together to create a night you want your employees to talk about in the office on Monday morning.

To create a fun and relaxed atmosphere, the most important element is the music. The right music should make someone want to sing, dance, or simply tap their foot to the beat. The wrong music selections could break an event, so it’s crucial to remember when looking for a DJ to choose a professional who knows how to go above and beyond to “wow” guests and create a personalized experience for the event,

Corporate events should be a time for deserving employees to let loose, kick back, and enjoy some time with co-workers outside of the office, but the event itself should remain professional. If there is a sure way to set a professional tone for any event, it starts with hiring a professional DJ.

 

Why Hire A Professional DJ?

Professionals will do a lot more than just play music; they act as an MC and run the show. It is a DJ’s job to elevate the mood and set the tone for your corporate event. The bigger the event, the more responsibilities are put on the DJ to keep the event running smoothly. Let’s explore the most important reasons to hire a professional DJ at your next corporate party:

 

Professional DJs Keep The Event Rolling

You can think of a DJ as a vocal itinerary of the night. They will let you know what’s going on, what to expect, and when to cue guests for things like food and song changes. A professional DJ will keep the night moving and do whatever it takes to read the room before making their next move.

 

Professional DJs Play Diverse Music

The best and most current music should be played at a corporate event unless otherwise discussed. While there are timeless classics that everyone will know and love, everyone appreciates a little bit of a mix. A professional will keep an eye out on what the dance floor is looking like or read the mood of the room, one bad song could damage the image of a company.

 

Professional DJs Provide Their Own Equipment

In the middle of planning everything that needs to be checked off the list for a successful event, the last thing you want to worry about is getting the right equipment for a DJ. A professional DJ will do this part for you. Not only will they bring their own equipment, but it’ll be the best quality equipment to give your guests the best experience.

 

Professional DJs Step Up To Make the Event Less Stressful

Professional DJs are experts at parties. They take a tremendous amount of stress off of staff members and those in charge of planning the event. They can help with announcements such as when it’s time to eat, awards, and recognitions. A professional will be used to talking in front of large crowds, making it easier for your company leaders who might not naturally hold the same public speaking skills.

 

Professional DJs Can Make Your Company Look Good

Not only will an experienced DJ look and sound professional, but using the best resources will help your company image. They will ensure they are playing appropriate music while keeping the culture of your company in mind. A professional DJ will also avoid making rookie mistakes like mispronouncing names or having too many pauses between songs.

 

Hiring a professional DJ doesn’t only benefit a company’s image, but also employee participation in the next event. If any of your staff wasn’t able to make it to this party, you’ll want them hoping they can come to the next one based on what their co-workers had to say! A DJ is one of the most important choices you have to make, so you’ll want to make sure they have experience and they are a trusted professional. For more information about hiring a professional DJ for your next event, contact us at HD Entertainment today.

9 Local Corporate Event Venues You Forgot About
