It's not uncommon for a soon-to-be-newlywed couple to want to save money. There's a process and lots of conversations where an engaged couple has to decide where to make adjustments. Often a DJ will be the first to get shorted. Why spend an arm and a leg on a DJ when your buddy Ryan has got his own sweet speaker system and a ton of music?
Here's a couple reasons hiring a professional DJ is a worthwhile investment:
Depending on the DJ, you hire, you could be getting anywhere from a couple months to a couple decades. But one thing you can know for sure at Empire Productions is that your DJ has been trained extensively and feels confident that each and every gig will be an epic one. Owner Tony Axtell has over 8 years of experience and has DJed almost 600 events. Each and every Empire Productions DJ brings different levels of experience but all will make sure your night is an epic one.
2. Peace of mind
Take a deep breath and worry not. A professional DJ will be in total control so you don't have to be. You can walk into your reception hall with zero worry lines on your forehead because the DJ you hired knows exactly what he or she is doing.
3. Good memories
If nothing else, you want your wedding day to be full of good memories. The tears, the laughs, the hugs and congratulations, the overflow of gifts, the feeling you get when his eyes meet yours as you walk down the aisle . . .you will carry these memories with for your lifetime.
A professional DJ wants his music choices, emceeing, and the great dancing that your guests get to enjoy to be yet another memory you can store away.
You never know how things with an amateur DJ (who might just be your best friend's brother) are going to go down. With Empire Productions, you can rest easy knowing that your DJ will follow through on what he or she says will happen
You can be rest assured that a professional DJ will have top-notch equipment. Speakers, lighting, mics, and amps are all basic necessities for a disc jockey, but a well-reputed one will know how to set-up and use all the above and more!
DJ's aren't just good with the tunes . . . they'll have the people skills to top it off! Your reception will be able to flow smoothly from radio favorites to the good ole oldies, from country croons to melt your heart lullabies . . .a worthwhile DJ will have taken the time to figure out exactly what you want and exactly what you don't. A prime DJ will be able to make "Cotton Eye Joe", "Butterfly Kisses", the shoe game, and the bouquet toss all work together to pull off a night you won't soon forget.
With a professional DJ, you won't have to worry about him showing up in jeans and a t-shirt. Empire Productions makes sure that your DJ wears attire that complements the theme of your wedding. Whether that be a suit, cowboy boots, or a Hawaiian lei, our DJ's show the utmost professionalism at all times on the job.
8. Music Variety
Your musical tastes may be all over the board. Maybe you can always get your jam on to Beyonce, but you never get tired of the Cupid Shuffle either. You can always belt out the Backstreet Boys, but you certainly don't mind slowing it down with Ed Sheeran's beautiful tenor voice. The DJ crew at Empire Productions will make sure our playlist for your special night is specifically geared toward the stars of the evening: you.
9. Ability to adjust
Although we can cross our fingers that everything will go according to the plan, we all know that -doesn't always happen. A professional DJ is worthwhile because if there's a minor hiccup, he or she will be able to roll with it and move on.
Your reception is a celebration of the wonderful life-long you and your love just proclaimed to the world. You can't put a price tag on memories of a packed dance floor and people having a grand time. Think of hiring a reputable DJ as not just a one-night expenditure, but the kick-off of the first of many great nights together as husband and wife.
