hey all of you married women who decided to go with just the DJ for the night.. i am wondering what you all feel about your decision now?? I was thinking that maybe with a bar extension, having a DJ for the whole night might get tedious and a bit boring.

We had a band then DJ so I don't have first hand experience of what you asking but what I would say is that you need to make sure you get a REALLY GOOD dj as it's a long time to be playing so he/she needs a great and varied selection of music for the night. If you change your mind and get a band and DJ I have a good recommendation for both. Best of Luck :wv

Was at a DJ only wedding a while ago and it wasnt boring at all. DJ played a great mixture of songs. While the dance floor wasnt as full as other weddings I've been (probably just as due to it being a small wedding), it was great. Definitely didnt dance as much but the craic was still great at the table

I was in two minds about getting a band (for guests sake - I have no interest in them) Then I went to my future sister in laws wedding & the band were so bad. They didnt interact with crowd at all (which is the only reason why I was thinking of getting a band) & most people got up and danced for DJ. The floor was huge & the wedding wasnt big enough for it & then when people werent dancing it looked worse. I would have been annoyed if it was my day but I suppose if it happens on my day I'll be too busy enjoying myself to notice! Ive mad friends though that love dancing (like I do) so hopefully I should be ok

I am only having a DJ. I've gotten alot of grief for this with the family but he has a wide variety of music and I'm convinced it will be great!

Im getting grief too but what Im doing is avoiding the subject totally with people I know that will complain! O:|

My favourite uncle actually made me end up in tears over this telling me my wedding would be awful but after talking to others they made me feel better. Its your day and you need to do what you want and what fits into your budget!

Exactly - everyone has an opinion unfortunately. Music is music & in my opinion you can tell a DJ to change the music if its not getting the crowd going and you cant tell a band to change as they wouldnt be able to change their routine, voice etc.
