Many factors determine the outcome of the dancing at every wedding. There are some surefire ways to get the party going, and there are even more ways that can have a negative impact on the dancing. We’ve never had a complaint from a client about the dancing, but as DJs, we know when things could have gone just a little bit better. After thinking it over for a few minutes, here’s what I came up with:
- DJ on the dance floor, nothing in between. Choose function over fashion!
- Pick a variety of fun music that everyone will like.
- Avoid overly long dance periods. Think sprint, not marathon.
- Don’t stop the dancing too many times for other activities.
- Starting dancing while there is light in the room can make it harder to get going.
- Keep the booze flowing for your guests (we promise not to drink)
- Communicate your expectations to your DJ.
- Don’t play too many slow songs.
- Bride and Groom set the tone. If they dance, their guests will.
- If the B&G leave the dance area for any extended time, the dance floor will suffer.
Some of these things can be all-together avoided and some are inevitable. I always strive to keep the party moving, I just roll with it and shift my focus to taking the party to the next level. Song selection and the music we discuss will be a huge determining factor in the end. Let’s pick some good beats!
I’ve given you some things not to do and couple to do, set up a consultation to hear many more ideas on what we can do to have the most fun at your wedding or event!
