The ceremony is over. You’ve had your first kiss as spouses, and now it’s time for your first dance. Everyone watches you glide across the floor to a song you’ve chosen… but what will it be? The first dance song should reflect your relationship and the way you feel about each other. It will set the tone for the whole evening, and get the guests up and out of their seats, and in the mood for a night out on the dance floor.

You’re planning the perfect wedding, reception and all the details they entail. The time has come to make a decision regarding the music. Do you just need a DJ, or should you hire an emcee as well? Both perform different services and, like you and your fiancée, they work best together.
The DJ’s Role
A great wedding DJ uses music to create the mood you want and to keep the party going. Their job is to address the sound and entertainment needs of the reception, play requests and keep the dance floor active.
The Emcee’s Role
There are many moments during the reception that will need attention and direction. A wedding emcee manages these activities, making sure that everything goes smoothly, including but not limited to these moments:
A wedding emcee engages the crowd, keeps everyone informed of what is happening next, and works with the DJ to keep the atmosphere elevated.
Do You Need Both?
That depends on your needs and expectations. Party DJs are rarely a good choice for a reception, because they aren’t experienced with managing emcee tasks. Skilled wedding DJs can often handle both functions, but performing the emcee duties distracts from their other responsibilities. An emcee alone is never a good option unless you have a karaoke-themed reception. A DJ and emcee is a great combination that takes all of the worry off your shoulders.
The Day Entertainment understands the important roles of the DJ and the emcee and the positive contribution they make to your wedding reception. In addition to our event sound services, we have an experienced MC/DJ team that will keep your reception moving at an appropriate pace while keeping everyone happy and entertained.
