So, you are all set to host your gala wedding reception where all your near and dear ones will be in attendance. Surely, you would want them to take home fond memories of the event. While a professional DJ is a person who will make it happen, you should always keep in mind that there are some things that you need to communicate to him upfront so that the party keeps rocking. Here is a list of what you should say.
Pronunciation of names
In most cases, you would want the DJ to be the master of ceremonies and announce the names of the newlyweds and the hosts during the gala entrance. If so, you would surely want the DJ to announce all names of the wedding party correctly. Thus, you should give him a phonetic spelling list of the names and make her aware of unusual sounding names.
To be or not to be the master of ceremonies
Introductions apart, you may or may not want your DJ to do make a lot of announcements and speeches. You should let him know your preferences. For example, you may or may not want to be the star of the show. Also, you may want to avoid certain topics as those may embarrass people. A DJ needs to handle these things carefully and sensitively.
What music to play and the time
You will surely want your DJ to play the right song at the right time, for example during the introduction, at the first dance, during the cake cutting, and so on. Maybe, the song to which you and your partner would be dancing should fade out a minute or so before the end. All these preferences should be known to Los Angeles wedding djs.
Song request context
Giving the DJ some context for songs that you wish him to play makes his task easier. He gets a better idea of what other songs, genres, and artists might be suitable for the occasion.
