The Best Long Island Wedding DJs

best wedding DJs on long islandThe music sets the tone for the entire wedding reception so this is not the place to skimp. Hire only quality disc jockeys, starting with the ones below, recommended by wedding planners.

When working with a DJ, discuss what mood you’d like to create at your wedding. If most of the guests, for instance, will be your age, you’ll want a fun, lively party with current, danceable music. If many of the guests will be in your parents’ age bracket, to ensure they enjoy the festivities ask the DJ if he has an assortment of danceable music they would like, as well.

Do go over your musical taste prior to the wedding — Is rap out of the question? How about country? Would you like to honor certain guests by showcasing some ethnic music? Advance preparation and communication will be sure to get the party started!

To help other brides, please leave a comment below if you are already familiar with any of these.
