Booking a DJ for your Wedding Drinks Reception & Breakfast




After the tenseness of the wedding ceremony, the wedding drinks reception is always a nice relief for everyone. How about hiring a Wedding DJ for the wedding drinks reception to spin a few uplifting tunes? This is the time of day when the wedding guests will get to relax properly and chat to one another for the first time, so what better way is there to soundtrack all of this than by hiring a Wedding DJ?! The hired DJ can play any tunes that you desire, but for the wedding drinks reception, we would suggest some chilled-out songs and Easy-Listening tunes. Songs such as ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ by Frank Sinatra, ‘Ain’t got no, I got Life’ by the great Nina Simone and ‘Don’t Know Why’ by Norah Jones. At the wedding drinks reception, your family and friends will be enjoying the canapés and other light refreshments such as wine or Champagne. So by hiring a professional DJ, you will be getting a talented performer who will play the ideal background music for this wonderful time of the wedding day! The hired DJ will be able to set up fairly easily, as long as you have the requested power supplies, etc. This is something that you can discuss with the DJ by using our personal messaging service.


The wedding breakfast is important because it’s the time of the wedding day where the wedding guests get to sit down with the bride and groom and enjoy the wedding courses. Before the wedding speeches, why not hire a Wedding DJ to play some records and get everybody in a relaxed mood? The hired Wedding DJ will be able to play anything that you request to be played. You can arrange this prior to the event by using our personal messaging service to discuss the arrangements and to send over any last minute changes to the setlist. Personally, for the wedding breakfast music, we would request for the DJ to play more chilled out yet upbeat songs such as ‘Can We Kick It?’ by a Tribe Called Quest and ‘Revolution’ by The Beatles. There’re so many songs to choose from, that you may not know where to start! This will not be a problem! Simply advise the DJ of what kind of music you are into, and they will take over the responsibility of choosing the setlist for you. With enough information, they’ll know exactly what to play and when to play it. As mentioned, the wedding breakfast is the time Of the day when the wedding speeches are read out by the best man, the father of the bride and the groom himself. Why not request that the hired Wedding DJ plays a couple of songs in between each wedding speech? This will nicely split things up and will be a great intro to the next speech. Another aspect which is usually accomplished during the wedding breakfast is the cutting of the wedding cake. Hire the DJ to spin a song as the cake is being cut and you’ll have soundtracked a brilliant and romantic moment! Having a song played for the cutting of the wedding cake has become a standard feature of most weddings. Songs we would suggest for the cutting of the wedding cake would be something celebratory such as ‘You’re My Best Friend’ by Queen or the beautiful ’The Sweetest Thing’ by U2. After that, you can then request the DJ plays some more tunes as the guests filter out of the wedding breakfast venue.
