Live Band vs. DJ: Pros and Cons
A toast raised for the couple indicates that the party has begun. The marriage party has preferences for music as a live band or a DJ. A live band may be the best thing over a DJ who plays ready audio files however; each has its pros and cons. The occasion turns lively with a group of musicians playing different tunes using the music instruments. The difficult part is instantly to shift the mood on the dance floor like; light music to jazz or salsa based on the preference of audience.
The live musicians would also prefer a break for refreshment after a long session. The break at times could be a party crasher as none would want to lower the tempo that was set. It could be a diversion for the audience. Another disappointment for the wedding party could be unavailability of requested songs with the live musicians. The party has to restrict itself with the songs available with a live band.
Alternately, the concept of DJ in a wedding ceremony doesn’t break the mood. It could be a pricey affair however; it is worth the money. The jockey has record of thousands of songs that she/he can play. They can instantly shift the song genre as requested by the audience. Mixing the songs is their forte and does it pretty well to pump the atmosphere. A break is never on the cards for DJ till the party is over. Friends can request favourite tracks for their loved ones or dedicate to the couple. Ultimately, the DJ truly sets the dance floor on fire.
The Importance of Photography in Creating Memories
Photography has its importance for all events as it keeps a track and remains as a memory for a lifetime. The photo albums also create a nostalgic feeling when revisited.
A wedding album of photos is just the right example. It hunts down the memory lane to recollect the sequence of events of the day. Hiring a photographer for main occasions is always advised. The admiring part of the photo session is when the couple poses romantically for each snap. A wedding theme adds life to the photos and the album. The party dresses according to the theme and make the event a grand success.
The Trend of Selfies at Events
Self is the current trend at all events. Self is the term used when people pose and click the photo for themselves with a handheld or a digital camera. Selfie of the wedded couple would simply light up the album.
It actually excites everyone to talk or write about an important event in life that brings cheer to family and friends, and end up being an Entertainment.

It makes sense that you would get someone who can truly keep the guests entertained and occupied during your wedding reception.
Thank you for the comment Derek! A Djs knowledge in different genres on music differ from DJ to DJ and is a question that should be asked during the interview process. That being said and todays technology, a DJ should have access to obtain just about any song available right at their fingertips if the client wants a certain genres.
In your article, you suggested that the jockey has a record of thousands of songs that she/he can play and they can instantly shift the song genre as requested by the audience. My best friend is finally marrying his high school sweetheart and has asked me to be in charge of the entertainment. Do most wedding DJs have different themes that they can play?
