One of the many things a lot of Brides and Grooms do not think about when they get married is the layout of the hall, Seats, and where the entertainment is, specifically the DJ. The reason being is that most Couples are just overwhelmed by how the head table is going to look and how the overall hall generally looks. Most venues force the bride and groom into a certain layout which works best for their staff. While this makes sense, one of the things that is more important than the venue’s needs, are your party. Food is an important aspect of your wedding night, but the music is even more important. The reason being, if the food is bad, and people danced the night away, they will remember having a great time because that was their last impression of your wedding.

One of the biggest trends since the beginning of the 2000’s is to make a venue into a club. The venue has all of the sound and lighting installed into the venue, and the dj is designated into a booth. Sometimes this booth is in a corner of the venue, or the booth is 40 feet above in the upper regions where nobody can see the dj.

Have you ever been to a club, and had the dj suspended above the crowd, or upstairs somewhere? Didn’t this make you feel disconnected to the dj? The same thing applies at your wedding. It is for this reason that some of the major clubs in Europe and North America made it a point to put the dj elevated a little bit right next to the crowd.

The Best location for a dj would be to have them adjacent to the head table on the dance floor. You might want to have the dj on some sort of stage or risers just a little higher. This would allow people to see your entertainment and feel like someone is guiding the party all night. Think about it, when you have a dj that is somewhere not seen from the dance floor, it feels like an iPod is on all night and there is no one entertaining you.

What if you want to make a simple request, or your planner or hall wants to go over to the dj and communicate something to them? This becomes ever so difficult if the dj is not accessible. It can also create a lot of hiccups during the night, and can also start to be a big problem. Imagine you want to start speeches, or make some sort of announcement, but somebody has to climb a flight of stairs, go through a hallway, and through some door to speak to the dj? This can be time consuming and be very annoying to your planner or head wait staff.

Another situation I encounter a lot is when the venue throws the dj in the corner of the room, and the dance floor is 20 feet away. Does it make sense to have your dj in the corner of the room where the coat check is? Your Dj is part of your dance floor, and that is exactly where the DJ should be!

If the venue says there is no way to put your entertainment on the floor then maybe you should think about another room, or venue.
