The Harmony of a Chicagoland Wedding DJ and a Master of Ceremonies

Your wedding is meant to be a fun and momentous occasion that you celebrate with the one you loved and all your friends and family. And what’s a celebration without music.

Music plays a special role in your wedding. And since DJs cost quite a large sum of money, you want to ensure you will have a wedding DJ who can work well with your master of ceremonies to make all the music a beautiful reflection of your big day.

If you’re in the Chicagoland area and you want to have a memorable wedding reception, read on to learn how a Chicagoland Wedding DJ duos beautifully with your master of ceremonies.

Difference Between the DJ and the Master of Ceremonies

DJs and masters of ceremonies are often mixed up, largely because some DJs do perform the master of ceremony service. However, the two roles are very different.

The master of ceremonies is the host of the event. The role is meant to be more interactive with the guests. While a DJ typically needs to stay at the soundboard, the master of ceremonies is able to step away for special moments such as announcing the cake cutting or doing introductions.

The DJ on the other hand plays music for the event. While they occasionally perform small announcements, they are mostly there for musical purposes to keep everyone entertained.

While the roles are different, the two roles often work together for the sake of setting the tone and making the reception special.

How the DJ Duos With the Master of Ceremonies

While a DJ can perform small announcements, performing both this role and the master of ceremony role is quite difficult, particularly if it’s a larger wedding reception. The master of ceremonies is there in such situations to work with the DJ to set the tone and entertainment of the wedding.

The master of ceremonies announces events and moments and communicates with the DJ to ensure the music is played at just the right time. The master of ceremonies will also communicate with you and your guests regarding requests and he will communicate them with the DJ to keep them from getting overwhelmed.

Thorugh rehearsal when possible, and through regular communication, the DJ and the master of ceremonies work together to create an entertainment event that you and your guest will be talking about long after the wedding is over.
