Top Ten Reasons to DJ Your Own Wedding Reception

Top Ten Reasons to DJ Your Own Wedding | Rent Sound System Phoenix AZTop Ten Reasons to DJ Your Own Wedding

1. Control. Most people spend more than a year planning every last detail of their wedding.  When it comes to the entertainment and music, they often times just hire a DJ who they will never see again.  This used to be the only option for a bride and groom, but with today’s technology (iPods, laptops, etc.) you can not only plan out what will be played song after song, but also save a ton of money by not having to add the expense of a DJ.

2. Cost. Our customers tell us that our sound system rental packages generally save them between $750 and $1000. That sure is a lot of money that could be used for other places.

 3. Incorporate Your Unique Personality. Here’s a trade secret – most disc jockeys play the same basic set of songs at each and every wedding they do.  They will occasionally add in the “latest top 40 hits”, but other than that, it is simply on auto play.  If you think that your DJ is going to spend time custom crafting the perfect playlist for your wedding, you are dreaming!

4. Songs like the Macarena Exist. You might say that you don’t want any of the cheesy “classic” wedding songs played, but when your 13 year old cousin starts to beg the DJ, they are going to give in and play the Chicken Dance or some other ridiculous song.

5. Language and Profanity Concerns. Perhaps you aren’t a big fan of the language in many popular songs today.  In a cross generational setting like most weddings, the selections of a DJ can cause significantly uncomfortable moments.  When you set your own playlist to play through our equipment, you don’t need to worry about what is coming up next.

6. Remote locations. If you aren’t holding your rehearsal at a traditional venue, you will probably have trouble finding a DJ that can work in your location. Our basic DJ sound system is extremely portable.

7. The Experience Myth. To be fair, there are some good DJs out there, but becoming a DJ is what is known as a “low barrier to entry profession”.  There aren’t classes that you need to attend to be a DJ.  You could truthfully just buy a few big speakers and some music and start calling yourself a professional disc jockey.  Most DJs have little to no experience, and they will be training with your wedding and charging you a premium for the opportunity.

8. It’s Easier Than You Think. With our thorough and easy to understand setup instructions, you will be able to setup, operate and entertain your family and friends.  You can even start calling yourself a “professional DJ” after you finish your event!

9. No One Ever Remembers a Wedding For A Good DJ. We’ve never met anyone who said, “boy that DJ was great, what a perfect wedding” – It just doesn’t happen.  The reverse is true, unfortunately.  I have several friends that had awful DJs at their wedding and that is all I remember about the night.

10. You Get The Support of Big Deal Entertainment. We have the experience and knowledge you need to make sure your music is perfect on your wedding night. You have full access to our staff and can call us at any time for support.  We provide you with our personal cell phone numbers so that any problem can be fixed immediately.
