share on:

The jobs of DJ’s have basically being made easy at weddings because they are not constrained to choose recent songs to entertain the guests.

It is however a different ball game for some couples who find it tasking to pick the perfect song for their entry and first dance.

Almost everyone that attends a wedding asides to deliver congratulatory messages to the couple and to participate in Item 7, want to watch the couple’s first dance.

The song the Disc Jockey chooses to play at this moment can either make or mar that special moment and that is why picking just the right song to express the love the couple share and pass the right message across can be tougher than what most people think.

That special moment is one that the couple shares with friends, family and people that they barely know that want to be a part of that memorable experience with smiles and heart filled with wishes.

While some couples are keen on selecting their own songs for the DJ as a result of a number of reasons. It could be that the song reminds them of a particularly happy time in their relationship or the songs hold a particular meaning to them.

Some couples on the other hand have a variety of songs to choose from, while others simply leave the decision to the DJ.
