If it’s going to be a small intimate group mingling while music is more of a backdrop, then a DJ is probably not needed. A playlist will suffice. If you want dancing, you can still have a wedding without a DJ and save on those costs. However, a perk with having a DJ is that you, your family or friends, won’t have the duty of having to play “DJ”. Even if they say they will, chances are they won’t want to do it all night. The night of the wedding, they’ll be drinking, mingling, partying, and the last thing they’ll want to do is play DJ. This is where having a DJ for your wedding will always prevail. DJs come in with one thing in mind: To entertain and get people dancing to music they want to hear. As long as they’re friendly, willing to read the crowd to get people dancing and takes requests. Ideally, this is the type of wedding DJ you want to have.
