This night is about you and your guests. The announcer’s job is to supply the glue (if you will,) to the evening. His experience level and attitude is paramount. He must also bring industry-standard equipment, including music that covers all genres. He should ask periodically for requests throughout the evening and encourage the guests to bring him their music preferences.
Most wedding parties like to be welcomed into the room with a special song of their choice. Cocktail music is a very important part of the evening and is a great time to mix songs that might not be as appropriate for the dance portion of the evening. It’s also a great time to play to the older crowd in the case that they leave earlier in the night.
We at Candu offer a free consultation at your location or hall to discuss all details from start to finish. These meetings can last for an hour to two hours in length. It is important to us that you consider all the formalities of your wedding night, including music you like as well as music that you don’t want to hear. We encourage our clients to use our Playlist feature to easily prepare your request list.
You should feel free to ask as many questions as you like. The company you choose should be very concerned about the visions and expectations you have of your special night. There should always be a contract, which includes the specific information the company needs to know. Do you need music for your ceremony? If so, the company can set up a smaller system at the church or chosen venue. If it’s outside, there must be a source of power or a generator is required. There should be a strict dress code where the announcer is in a suit or at least a jacket and tie. All announcements should be done in a professional manner with a flare of fun added; after all, this is a fun event but only if all details are carefully prepared and in check.
There is more and I invite you to call with any questions.
Thank you for taking the time to read this,
