Find A DJ To Match Your Style
Outside of music, the main job of the DJ is to make sure that we stick to the reception timeline as closely as possible. When the DJ makes any changes he will run them by the planner or coordinator to make sure everybody is on the same page. In the end, the DJ is the one that makes the announcements and communicates any changes to all the wedding guests.The DJ is there to play music for you and your guests. Without a DJ you won’t have much of a dance party. However, the main part of their job is to be the master of ceremony. It’s important to find a DJ that matches your style. When it comes to the dance party you want somebody to be an entertainer but not someone who’s overbearing or wants to be the center of attention.
Tasks For The Day Of Coordinator
The day of coordinator tasks are a little bit different from the DJ’s. First and foremost, the coordinator will confirm with all the vendors when they are arriving and when they are leaving. He or she can coordinate the loading or tear down times so elevators aren’t being crammed with all vendors coming at the same time.
One of the biggest jobs of the day-of coordinator is the rehearsal dinner or walkthrough. The DJ usually won’t be there for this (unless you want someone to act as the master of ceremony for this as well). The coordinator will get the wedding party lined up to practice for the ceremony so the wedding goes according to plan.
The DJ’s job is to make sure that we stick to the timeline once the wedding starts. But your planner is going to make sure that you stick to your timeline when it comes to pre event prep, such as hair, makeup, and people arriving. He or she will also make sure you’re ready for first look photos with the photographer. The day-of coordinator is usually in charge of setting up the floor plan so all the different vendors have as much space as possible. Your day of coordinator will help facilitate all the decorations and will let vendors know where they need to be. For instance, where the cake is going to be, where the dinner tables are set up, where the programs are being stored, where to place the guest book, where to place the gifts, and so on.When it comes to the ceremony the DJ or planner can help guide everybody down the aisle but it’s the coordinators job to fix the bride’s dress. During the ceremony, it’s sometimes customary to hold a candle lighting, knot tying, or special religious ceremony. It is the planner’s job to make sure that everybody has everything that they need to perform this service. They will also make sure that the best man has the ring in his pocket. When the ceremony is over, the coordinator will make sure the couple knows where to go to sign the marriage license with the minister or pastor. Throughout the day your planner will help you with your dress. They will also make sure everybody is in their place when it comes time to do pictures. This is a very tricky time since people are all over the place having cocktail hour so it’s nice to have someone to wrangle everyone to the right place.
The End Of The Wedding Night
At the very end of the wedding there is always the daunting test to make sure that everybody checks out of the venue on time. It will be the coordinator’s job to make sure that everything is picked up and nothing is left behind. They will be responsible for all check out tasks so that way you can focus on what’s most important: spending quality time with the people you love.In conclusion I think the DJ and day-of coordinator are both a great investment. Remember this is an event that only happens once in a lifetime. Putting these tasks on your wedding guests to complete is very stressful and many times won’t go as planned.
