Kick off the party the right way

Transitioning from dinner to dancing can be challenging if you don’t take the energy up a notch. Fortunately, a great DJ will know just the trick! With the right set of upbeat songs and a natural hype master on the mic, your guests will be fighting their way to the dance floor. Consider starting out with a dance competition to build the excitement from the start of the evening!

Set the mood with lighting

Even the best tunes won’t inspire your guests to boogie if the lighting isn’t right. Stuffy overhead lighting will have people feeling uncomfortable and unlikely to hit the dance floor. Dim the lights and use some colored uplights to create the right ambience to match your playlist. If you want to go the extra mile, add in some romantic market lights for a sweet and inviting setting.

Mix it up throughout the night

Not everyone shares the same taste in music, so be sure to mix up your playlist with songs from a variety of genres. When you work with an experienced wedding DJ, they will help you settle on the perfect blend of top 40s, hip hop, jazz, oldies, and dance music. That way, you can be certain that all of your guests will have a chance to show off their moves.

Set a shining example on the dance floor

If the dance floor is looking sparse, hop up and show them how it’s done! At a wedding, guests tend to follow the newlyweds’ lead — so, go on and get your groove on. Pull up your wedding party members to join you and you’ll be filling the dance floor before you know it. Did someone say dance circle!?
