How to work with a DJ so you can have a seamless wedding.
So in the first of the blogs we talked about how important it was to send your Melbourne DJ a list of all the songs you would like to play at your wedding and also some tips to follow regarding the bridal entrance songs and to make sure everything is simple and clear so the DJ has no confusions.
This part of the blog we will be talking about all the arrangements and information the DJ needs prior to the wedding. At weddings it is crucial that the DJ has a run sheet of the night because he is in charge of all the music and sound. It is important to tell him the times of everything from the start of the reception to the end. Even when you are cutting the cake or if you are going to have wedding games or anything like that. He needs to when when to stop and start the music to know what type of music to play, up beat fun music or sexy music if it’s the garter tossing.
Best time is to list the times of what is happening and next to it an estimate of how long it will run for.
It is also good for the Melbourne wedding DJ to talk to the contractors or the venue managers. Pass Melbourne DJ hire their names and on the day we can arrange logistic with the venues and a lot of the times if we build a relationship at the start of the night they will signal us or we can help them out and in the end it makes it a great night. One job we worked at in the Yarra Valley had their own mic system so the mc and bride and groom could do speeches and announcements on the other side of the room. Or they could signal the DJ on when to start and stop music if the DJs site is blocked to the bridal table or bridal entrance door.
Once we were at a job and the videographer plugged in a device into our Melbourne djs decks so when he is make the wedding video he had sync the music to his camera.
