Hiring a DJ to play your St. Louis reception isn’t as hard as you think it might be! Your reception shouldn’t just be “DJ’d”, it should be left in the capable hands of a killer entertainment company. That way you and your guests can focus on celebrating the best day of your life! Remember this one and only rule when planning for an amazing wedding reception: It’s A Celebration! Don’t overthink it! Don’t let planning stress you out or ruin the fun. We want to help take that off of your shoulders.

You want a DJ who is going to craft a soundtrack for your wedding that is based on you as a couple, and your overall creative vision for your party. If you want a monster mosh pit at your wedding, then a mosh pit you get. From cheesy 80s tunes, the perfect song for your first dance, or that cool groomsmen line dance–we deliver those too! Our professional DJs will gladly cater to your must haves on any playlist and avoid things like the ‘Chicken Dance’ if that’s how you roll. With Premier Entertainment you are in total control of the music that will be played on your wedding day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hiring the right DJ for your wedding in St. Louis shouldn’t be difficult or scary! The DJ is supposed to be the fun part of a wedding! There are many things you should know before you hire a DJ. The best thing you can do before hiring is to interview your DJ before you make a decision.
It is always in your best interest to meet with any vendor before hiring them. We feel that this is the easiest way for you to make an informed decision about the most visible vendor, especially, one who will be in front of all of your friends and family for many hours on your most important day. Don’t forget, the DJ is in charge of running your whole reception as well as entertaining your guests. If you interview them in person, you will have a better sense about the decision that you make one way or the other.
