Communication Between Your Wedding DJ and Vendors

Effective communication between your DJ and wedding vendors is an absolute must when it comes to the day of your wedding. Without a professional to navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of such an important event, you could be setting yourself up for a less than stellar celebration. Why would you put so much time and effort into planning your big day just to have it undermined by the very people you entrusted to make sure your dream for the perfect wedding day is realized? When you hire DJ Cutt Entertainment to work at your wedding you are guaranteed to avoid these pitfalls. We work tirelessly to build professional relationships with all wedding vendors. This effort is rewarded when the dream you have for your wedding comes to fruition. We recently provided wedding DJ services to a couple at the scenic Gorge Crest Vineyards in Underwood Washington. This event provided the perfect backdrop to showcase how successfully a wedding can be pulled off when communication between your various wedding vendors and DJ is handled professionally.

Initial Setup

As guests arrive at the stunning Gorge Crest Vineyards, they are treated to the awe-inspiring views of the sprawling forested hillsides that create a secluded oasis on this beautiful and sunny day in Underwood Washington. Months of planning have culminated to produce the perfect setting with which to celebrate the convergence of two hearts as they become one together in matrimony.

As with most summer weddings, guests tend to congregate in the shaded areas before the wedding begins. That is why it is so important to make sure that speakers are strategically placed in these areas so that wedding vendors can communicate with each of the guests all at once. This allows vendors like photographers and the wedding planner to give instructions when to begin seating and where thus preserving the schedule and flow of the wedding.

This is yet another example of the effectiveness of having a professional DJ running the audio for your wedding. Knowing when and where to place speakers around the venue and setting the appropriate volume levels allows important announcements to reach each of the guests simultaneously and ensures a smooth transition from one event to the next.

Vendor Communication

Of course, none of this would be possible without first establishing good working relationships will all of the vendors at the wedding. I can’t stress enough how important it is to know how each vendor prefers to work. It is the subtle nuances of each vendor’s style that dictates how we operate at an event. Establishing these relationships helps to instill a cooperative spirit for the event where each vendor communicates freely what they need to happen and when. You would be surprised how often this plays a role in whether or not a wedding is conducted successfully. Being respectful of the job that each vendor needs to perform prevents “stepping on toes” when it comes to performing the duties each of us was hired to do, creating a cohesive wedding team with one goal in mind…delivering the best wedding possible!

One of the most overlooked and important announcements the MC can make once the ceremony is over involves making sure everyone knows how to locate the restroom.

How To Plan Your Wedding Timeline

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most important aspects is the event timeline. This is necessary to keep everybody on schedule and make sure nothing gets lost in the shuffle. Here at DJ Cutt Entertainment, we understand the importance of preparation. That’s why we have our own online planning form for you to use with the specific times that we need to know. On your wedding day we will try our hardest to hit these specific events at the specific times. However, we approach the entire day with a commitment to flexibility, because we know many things can run late (or early) during the actual event. Often times, you won’t know what time the day should start but you have a hard out when the event must end. Our approach is to plan the timeline in reverse so that way you know exactly what time to start your event versus just trying to guess. Many venues have a hard cut off time that you have to be out by and a time that the vendors have to be out by as well. What time do weddings typically end? After DJing weddings the past 15 years in Oregon and Portland, the average end time is somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We have had weddings go till at least 3 in the morning but 90 to 95% of weddings and at this time.
