Top Tips from a wedding DJ

Eternity Events Essex is a wedding supplier working with two of our wonderful wedding venues, the Holiday Inn London Camden Lock & the Holiday Inn London Brentford Lock. They are sharing with us their top tips to make the best use of your wedding DJ on your big day!

"A good wedding is always judged on how much your feet hurt from dancing and celebrating."

The first chance you get to really stare and look into each other’s eyes with a wow feeling that we have finally done it is the first dance. eHre at Eternity Events Essex, we always make sure we get everybody on their feet and focused on the big moment. Nowadays it's quite normal for couples to have children before marriage and if children are at the wedding, encouraging them to join mum and dad halfway through the first dance creates a wonderful family moment.

When you have picked your first dance, have a good listen and act the first dance out at home. If you don’t feel comfortable being the centre of attention for the whole song, let us know and we will call your guests onto the floor to join you. 

Lighting the dance floor with the right type of lighting for the first dance is really important , you don’t want fast moving lasers whizzing around the room whilst you're having a romantic dance (disco lights also play havoc with the photographers sensors in the cameras ). Slow moving colour changers are perfect for the start of the night .

Make sure you submit a playlist with all your favourite songs and let the DJ know if certain songs mean something special to a guest; we will make an announcement and get them on the dance floor for you. Pick all the songs that you went crazy to back in the day at uni / school with your mates and don’t worry you won’t be judged by your friends on how cheesy they are. A good wedding is always judged on how much your feet hurt from dancing and celebrating.

Lastly and most importantly, enjoy your wedding and dance your socks off!
