I’m sure you’ve all heard the horror stories of wedding DJ disasters. Well, I have a story that is particularly cringe-worthy. A few weeks ago, I went camping with some friends and one of them told me about her wedding DJ disaster about 10 years back. Even after a decade, she was still visibly annoyed reflecting on her experience.
At that time, there was a shift in music formats and everything was switching over to MP3s. My friend had diligently burned her favorite music onto a few CDs for her wedding day. She passed the CDs off to the DJ and thought nothing of it. She was in for a rude awakening!
When the day arrived, the DJ started playing music, but it wasn’t her favorite songs. In fact, none of the music that he was playing was what she requested. The DJ had put on his own CDs and was playing his music. Needless to say, she was pretty upset.
When she approached the DJ and asked why he wasn’t playing the music she requested, he gave the excuse that he didn’t have the “right equipment” to play her MP3 CDs – only traditional audio CDs. By that point it was too late to do anything about it, so she had to just sit back and listen to music that she didn’t even like.
Not only was my friend sorely disappointed on her special day, but the DJ’s lackluster song selection left the dance floor empty.
I’m sure you can all understand why this story is so cringe-worthy. It’s a bride’s worst nightmare! Not only did the DJ not play the right music, but he also didn’t have the decency to tell her ahead of time that he wouldn’t be able to play her requested songs.
This story is a good reminder of how important it is to choose a qualified and professional wedding DJ. Don’t let memories of your big day become defined by a terrible soundtrack. Make sure you do your research and pick a DJ that will make your wedding everything you’ve ever dreamed of!
