Striking a Balance Finding an Affordable Wedding DJ


A Feel for Things: Strike a Balance in Finding an Affordable Wedding DJ

Every DJ is different, but one thing to consider when you’re hiring an affordable Wedding DJ is how you feel about that DJ navigating the evening.  Is there trust?  If you’re doing it right, there should be.  So, let’s explore adding a little sparkle to your wedding reception.

Atlanta Affordable Wedding DJ's, Best DJ's

You and your partner will know you’ve found the right disc jockey when you feel confident that he or she can handle just about anything.  (It’s kind of like marriage, right?) Because, honestly, the bride and the groom aren’t supposed to be worried about the details.  Now that the party is planned, it’s up to them to let go and enjoy the special day.

When choosing a DJ or the musical act for your wedding reception, an interview can be a great way to get to know the DJ or the live performers and to see if the match is right.  Of course, though you and your partner are the ones hiring the DJ or the live performers, keep in mind the DJ or the musicians may have some questions for you, too.

He (or she) may want to know how many people will be coming in from out of town, the ranges of ages of people in attendance, and the types of music you want most requested.  In addition to what songs should and should not be played, these details matter.

Even if you don’t know specifics, being open and honest with each other will get this working relationship professional and off on the right footing while keeping the evening unfolding just as you originally planned.  Let us help you plan!  We do this all the time.

It is certainly worth the investment to use the skills of a knowledgeable, proven DJ performer and consider using our company to guide you every step of the way and be there for you from the booking date to to play date.

Wedding Planning For My Wedding Music

Wedding Music Bands & DJ's PLanning
Let’s Get This Party Started!

Help! What Should I Do For My Wedding Music?

Details associated with wedding planning can pile up quickly. The dress. The cake. The shoes. The venue. But what about the music?  When considering what music will play on your big day, perhaps the best way to start is to close your eyes, imagine yourself there, and listen. What do you hear?


Wedding Planning for a Live Wedding Music Band? 

Do you hear a live band? When performers play live as opposed to a Disc Jockey (DJ), something changes in the atmosphere. Live performers offer unexpected touches of elegance. Options here include classical guitarists, string performers, jazz trios, and quartets.  Specialty bands that play Bluegrass, New Orleans Jazz, or even Irish and German Traditional Folk bands can highlight whatever personality traits you and your partner may have. Even if these people don’t play at the reception, they can still play a little ditty during your special ceremony. You choose.

Is it Top 40?

When you close your eyes, how full is the dance floor? If you want a packed dance floor and an all-night party, staying current with what’s streaming on the radio may be your best bet. People love to get down to the songs they know. Top 40 jams are chock-full with easy rhythms to persuade even the most timid of dancers to get out onto the floor. Even if your guests didn’t know the song when they arrived, they’ll remember it by the time they leave.

The choice is up to you. Once you figure out what you hear, let Blue Sky Atlanta take care of the details in finding you and the perfect match in music.  Our new and upgraded user-friendly website now makes your search easier than ever before!   And, we want you to feel an instant comfort level when working with us.  We are professional musicians!   Call us today or write in everything about your wedding or special event!

Trust Blue Sky Atlanta Music & Entertainment to find the perfect wedding music band for you.
