You have the dress picked out and altered, the venue booked, and the flowers arranged. Almost everything is in place for the biggest day of your life – except for the entertainment. Your wedding is not only a special ceremony – it’s also a party. Studies show that entertainment is what 81% of guests say they remember most about the wedding! That is a staggering statistic, considering all the things most people have at their weddings. It just goes to show how important entertainment is to your guests and what they will be talking about long after your wedding is over.
During wedding planning, brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception venue and that reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. That doesn’t make sense does it? If most people remember the entertainment most but it’s one of the least prioritized things when planning a wedding, then how are these brides and grooms finding high quality entertainment for their guests? The answer is, they are not finding them. Instead, they are settling for subpar entertainment because it is not a priority for them. Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority during the wedding planning process instead of their least priority!
With over 80% of your guests saying that they will remember the entertainment you had at your wedding, how will you keep the atmosphere lively and your guests having fun? According to St. Louis Bride & Groom Magazine, 72% of brides admit that if they could do their wedding over again, they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment. Thankfully, you don’t have to be one of them.
One of the best forms of wedding entertainment is a full service disc jockey entertainment company. Why? Because the entertainers are well-versed in professional techniques that are focused on maintaining high energy and managing the crowd. A talented DJ with industry experience knows how to help you make a grand entrance at your reception, make announcements, and direct the flow of the event. Check out our sample wedding video below:
Research shows that entertainment is among the lowest priorities during the wedding planning process. But it is the entertainment that runs the show and makes the wedding celebration extra spectacular. A lot of effort goes into disc jockeying to ensure the soiree is an unforgettable and amazing experience. It may appear that a full-service disc jockey company only provides service for the 3 to 5 hours they are performing. But, that is far from it. A reputable entertainment agency will invest anywhere from 12 to 30 hours in the preparation and production of your wedding. Music purchasing, consultations, editing, preparation, setup, breakdown, and vendor communication is just some of the many aspects that go into a high-quality disc jockey service.
Without great wedding entertainment in Philadelphia, you risk guests leaving early before the wedding party is officially over. Having a disc jockey perform is a great way to make it memorable. That leads to the mention of the statistic we started this off with – studies show that entertainment is what 81% of guests say they remember most about the wedding. If you want an evening filled with nonstop dancing, great music, and cool special effects, hiring a disc jockey is the right move for your nuptial after-party.
Another tip when hiring a full service DJ entertainment company is to be aware that you are going to get what you pay for. Most full service companies will be priced at a reasonable level for the service they offer. Many of the bargain “DJs” you can find on Craigslist and other websites are going to charge a really low price to get you to book. However, when it comes to the day of, you will see the lack of professionalism and industry knowledge as they conduct their entertainment services. That is unfortunate, because those key factors are necessary for producing successful entertainment. Almost 100% of brides interviewed after their wedding say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment and less on the things that people don’t remember as much. Once again, that shows how truly important high quality entertainment is to your wedding.
