5 Top Ways to Engage Your Wedding Guests on The Dance Floor

If you are looking for ways to ensure your wedding guests thoroughly engage themselves at your wedding reception, here are a few very simple tricks to try. These are sure to get all your guests to the dance floor as soon as dance music comes through the DJ’s speakers!

 

  • Have A Spacious Dance Floor

If you want all your wedding guests having a great time on the dance floor, you will need a dance floor that is sized appropriately for your number of guests. They need enough space to show off their dance moves, of course.

Ensure that you put the size of the dance floor into consideration before choosing a wedding venue. Go for one that is spacious enough to accommodate every couple. Your venue will be able to estimate the correct size of the dance floor for your party.

 

  • Give your DJ the necessary information about your guests

While preparing your wedding playlist with your wedding DJ, we advise you to give the DJ the information they will need about your guests.

For example, inform them of the number of guests you are inviting, and the age range of the guests-how many teenagers, adults, etc. will be attending. This information will help the DJ arrange the playlist in a way that will entertain everyone in attendance.

 

  • Get Ready to Dance

Some of your guests might not be too eager to dance but you can change that. Lead by example! Once you set a good example for your wedding guests, we believe they’ll follow suit.

The wedding is all about you and your partner, so all eyes will be on you, which means they’ll be ready to follow if you hit the dance floor first.

One of our tips we give every couple is that your guests want to be wherever you are. They are there to celebrate you. If you’re on the dance floor, your guests will be there with you!

 

  • Play A Lot of Upbeat Dance Songs

Slow songs are great but when it comes to the dance floor at your wedding reception, dance songs work best, for obvious reasons.

When your wedding DJ plays faster songs at your wedding reception, your guests will be more enticed to get on their feet and dance the night away!

 

  • Get a professional DJ

A professional wedding DJ simply makes everything easier. When you secure the services of such a professional, you won’t have to worry about the entertainment at your wedding reception. A professional DJ knows how to set the mood at your wedding and make certain your guests have a wonderful time.

5 Questions A DJ Should Ask Bride and Groom

One way to gauge the experience and expertise of a DJ is from the questions they ask you. A good DJ will ask the clients the right questions to ensure they get the correct information needed to make your event perfect. Below are some questions you can expect your DJ to ask you.

 

  • How Did You Meet?

Good DJs always make an effort to get to know their clients. Knowing you will give them a good idea of your personality as a couple and that will influence the service they deliver to make your day match you.

 

  • What Kind of Music Do You Like and Not Like?

Couples get the option to add their favorite songs to the wedding playlist, of course, but a professional DJ will take the time to know your taste in music. That way they will understand what to play and what not to play on your big day. Meanwhile, if you want the DJ to handle everything, that’s welcomed too as long as they have an idea of what you want for your event.

 

  • Where Is the Wedding Venue?

DJs will ask about your venue in order to make sure they are quoting and providing appropriate sound and lighting gear Sometimes, DJs may need to visit the venue to understand the layout and facilities to correctly wire the setup. Find out if your DJ provides ‘venue site walks’ as a part of their contract.

 

  • What Is the Tone of Your Wedding?

Your wedding style will significantly influence a DJ’s song choices. Is it a traditional wedding? Small wedding? Formal or vintage wedding? Knowing what your event will look like and feel like will help the DJ plan the best strategy to perfectly compliment your event.

 

  • What Are the Names of Everyone in Your Wedding party?

If your DJ is working as the M.C. (or master of ceremonies), they need to be able to pronounce all the names correctly. During one of your meetings with your DJ (after booking) your DJ will want to talk through all the names in your wedding party to make sure they can pronounce them all correctly at your big day.

At Paul Michaels Events, we do not offer a one size fit all approach to our clients. We understand that all clients are different, so we ask the right questions to help us deliver the best services possible.

We care about your taste and needs, and we make time to get to know our clients to help us play the right music.
