4 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional DJ for Your Wedding

by Julio Guerrero

Wedding DJs are an important ingredient in ensuring your wedding is a fun and memorable day. They help to create the atmosphere that keeps the party upbeat and enjoyable. If you have been contemplating cutting back on expenses and having an amateur DJ, here are a few reasons to think again. 

Professional DJ equipment

DJs bring their professional DJ equipment that is much more reliable than a jerry-rigged system using home audio visual equipment. Professional DJ equipment produces a clear sound that sounds equally good if you are standing in front of the speakers or at the back of the room. Also, as things can (and do) go wrong in the frantic atmosphere of a wedding, they often carry with them spares of items like microphones and batteries. This means that you'll be guaranteed great sound.

A back catalogue of varied music

Professional DJs come to weddings with a range of music -- not just their favourite styles but also a range of music from every genre and era. That's important for a wedding where you want to have some of the bride and groom's favourite music as well as the music that their parents and grandparents might enjoy and some modern music to get the youngest guests grooving. Some of the older music can be a hard to find on online streaming services, so it's great to have a professional DJ's catalogue. 

A read of the room

One of the important things that comes with experience as a DJ is the ability to read the room and change the music up as needed. At different points in the night, people might need to burn off some energy with high energy dancing, while at other points people might like quieter songs to chat to. This is a skill that comes from experience, so an experienced DJ can make the event run exactly as you'd like. 


While you might have friends who are good at stringing together a few tunes, a wedding is a marathon rather than a sprint of DJing. You have to be able to keep up with audience requests and keep up the momentum of the night for a few hours without losing interest. Often amateur DJs get bored part of the way through the night and can get easily get distracted.

If you are planning a wedding, it's worth hiring a professional DJ for your wedding to provide quality entertainment all night long.
