“Do We Really Need It?” ~ Choosing Reception Entertainment in Alaska ~

Posted on: May 24th, 2011 by admin No Comments

Of all the things a bride budgets and plans for, many don’t even consider a DJ.  Now, a fabulous party is exactly what a bride wants, but often seeking a professional’s advice is pushed to the wayside.  Is there a good reason why you should hire a professional DJ?

Biggest Reasons a Bride Doesn’t Hire a Professional DJ:

  • “I’m a DIY bride and I cannot afford to hire a professional DJ”
  • “Good parties just happen”
  • “A DJ will take over my wedding reception”


These are valid concerns, however, one of Wedding Guide Alaska‘s favorite DJ’s, Martin of Alaska Professional Entertainment, has a statistic for you:78% of Brides have regrets regarding their choice to not include professional entertainment at their reception within one week of their wedding.

Here’s another: 81% of wedding guests say they remember the entertainment at the reception the most.  (check out page 145 of the Alaska Wedding Workbook)
