A budget wedding can be just as fun and memorable, it’s just a matter of looking for creative ways to have all the elements that you need without going over your wedding budget. Speaking of elements, there is a long list of items that you need to take into account. One of these is the wedding music. Of course, it costs money and can be expensive, especially when you hire a professional DJ. But what if your wedding budget doesn’t allow you to have one, or it isn’t just a priority for you? Don’t worry, you can still have a fabulous wedding without a DJ. Here are some tips on how to DJ your own wedding:
Music is one of the important elements to consider, and if you want to stick to your wedding budget, you can skip getting a DJ and use whatever resources you have.
Look at your contacts or networks
Surely you have a family member or friend who has a great taste in music and can create a playlist for your budget wedding. It can also be that a friend knows someone who can do it for you at a much lower price.
Ask a friend to be the DJ
With a playlist in hand, the DJ will be responsible for making sure that the music will flow smoothly throughout the program. It’s not so much like a proper DJ but you just need someone who will take care of the music from start to finish.
Ask guests for their favourite songs
Everyone has his/her own playlist, and it can be that your choice of music may not appeal to some guest. To ensure that you and your guests will enjoy the wedding music, ask them what their favourite songs are. In this way, they’ll be able to enjoy listening to songs during the program.
Use high quality hardware
Another budget wedding idea which should actually be a priority is to make sure that your music source and speakers are reliable enough to run smoothly for many hours. The wedding music should be heard throughout the venue so all of your guests will enjoy the event.
Music is one of the important elements to consider, and if you want to stick to your wedding budget, you can skip getting a DJ and use whatever resources you have. In the end, it’s all about you and your guests having a good time. And you can pull it off with just a few tricks and a little help from your friends.
