>This is a point that I have heard various sides too over the years. Some people, they seem to be the minority, don’t mind and actively encourage their disc jockey to be as garrulous as can be at their wedding or event. Other people, seems to be the majority, want a DJ to talk only when needed and keep vocals to a minimum. Often people are somewhere in the middle too so there is not a black and white answer to this issue. My biggest concern with this as an issue are the DJ’s who decide unilaterally what they should do. As a professional this should be one of the things brought up during our multiple meetings with the bride and groom. The decision belongs ultimately with them as it is THEIR day. A disc jockey should NEVER decide he knows best in what to do. He can try to speak with the bride and groom about any decisions made but it is not his decision to make ultimately. The wedding day is one of the biggest days of a couples life and we are their to guide them and learn their dreams and desires not vice-versa. This also applies to any event we do.
