What Makes A Great Wedding DJ?

Ask ten different people what makes a great wedding DJ and you will probably get ten different answers, all of which are right. To be a good wedding DJ one must posses a variety of different skill sets and traits that work together to create a memorable wedding for the bride and groom and their guests.

Important Wedding DJ Skills and Traits

  • Personality
  • Experience
  • Wedding coordination
  • MC’ing
  • Programming
  • Ability to “Read the crowd”
  • Mixing
  • Dancing
  • Singing
  • Game playing

What is Important To You?

It is up to you to determine which skills and traits are most important to you and then find the wedding DJ (or band) that best matches that.

(Just as a side note, we at MDM don’t believe the DJ should be the star of the show, it should be the Bride and Groom. Our DJ’s don’t sing, dance or play games at weddings. If that is what you are looking for their are plenty of other great companies out there that can provide this type of entertainment and we would be happy to refer you to them.)

The Most Important Wedding DJ Skill

I submit that even once a DJ has mastered these skills her or she is still not truly great yet. What really makes a wedding DJ great is the ability to listen to their clients. Yes, listen. If a wedding DJ truly listens to their client’s they are able to share their vision of their wedding day. With this understanding of their client’s expectations, tastes and attitudes they will know their role and how to best deliver what the bride and groom are looking for.

A great wedding DJ will ask the right questions and listen to what the bride and groom have to say.
