Keep Your Guests Dancing All Night Long

When it comes to creating the perfect party atmosphere, having a professional DJ & MC is a must! Our DJ’s are seasoned entertainers and produce hundreds of weddings a year at the top local venues. They are the epitome of professionalism, receive rave reviews and have getting a crowd up and moving down to a science! Check out our tips for planning your wedding day jams.

1. Plan ahead! Don't find yourself being introduced for the first time as husband and wife to a song you don’t even know or like! Our music checklist makes it easy for you to choose all your songs for everything from the first dance to the cake cutting.

2. Choose music for the crowd. At The Pros, we allow you full control of your music. However, your personal playlist may not necessarily be appropriate for dancing and may not appeal to the variety of guests at your reception. So be sure to choose genres that will appeal to everyone and popular dance tunes!

3. Trust the professional. Allow them to read the crowd and have some flexibility with the song choices. Give your DJ a sense of the type of music you like, genres you prefer and the type of crowd you expect. Our DJ’s have a huge selection of music that covers generations of songs and genres. Allowing the DJ some creative freedom also enables them to feel out and engage the crowd and keep them up and dancing.

4. Don’t rely on a friend. Having a friend or family member man the DJ booth or relying on an iPod station for your wedding reception is risky business. This is a huge responsibility and can cause a lot of stress for all parties involved. Not to mention, nothing shuts down a dance floor like a lag in music, a technical glitch or an inappropriate song choice.

5. Say yes to choreographed dances! Line dances, the congo line and dance offs are not a bad thing! No one wants to admit how much fun they are but it’s amazing how quickly that dance floor fills up when those classics start playing.

The Sweetest Sounds

"The sweetest sounds I'll ever hear are still inside my head
The kindest words I'll ever know are waiting to be said
The most entrancing sight of all is yet for me to see.
And the dearest love in all the world is waiting somewhere for me..."- Cinderella

Please Don't Stop The Music

Looking for ways to personalize your wedding? Let your ears do the talking! Music is one of the most emotive things in the universe, and songs and lyrics speak to people (true story, right?), so why not start the gabfest with your processional?

You can walk down the aisle to your favorite song (seriously)!!

No matter what kind of music you like, you can turn it into a processional. Just pop over to Amazon or iTunes, type in a song name, and voila — you'll find string quartets and harped-out versions of your favorite. (Apparently you can find 50 Cent in more places than da club.)

You can even personalize a classic wedding march!

Search in the same place for those songs, and you’ll find remixes of the classics, ranging from traditional versions with just a touch of edge, to all out contemporary jam versions. (Canon in D on the electric guitar? Yes, please.)

This day is about your story, so set the tone with what YOU like and kick your wedding off in style!
