How to Make Your Wedding an Epic Dance Party

Couples typically hire DJ's for their wedding reception so they can have an epic dance party surrounded by family and friends. It sounds like a simple idea, but that isn’t always the case.

The good news is it’s not too late to guarantee your wedding reception doesn't have a case of "empty dance floor-itis"! 27 Entertainment knows the stresses and the challenges you face when it comes to planning a successful wedding, and that’s why we are here to help you eliminate those factors. Below are some things you can do to ensure you have one of the Best Wedding Experiences ever…

Get Your Bridal Party Involved

Based on our extensive experience over the years, we’ve determined that there are two driving forces behind how packed the dance floor is or is not: the “New Mr. and Mrs.” and the Bridal Party. It is crucial that the reason everyone who came to celebrate this special day is out on the dance floor. Your guests are going to want to be where you are. You’re the reason they showed up. Essentially, and literally, you are the “life of the party.”

Designate Party Tables

Give your guests one job: to HAVE FUN. In the past we’ve had brides and grooms designate “Dancing Tables”. Simply select a few outgoing tables full of friends and family that are required to dance…all night. This is a recipe for more people out on the dance floor, which in turn, means more people will have the time of their lives out there. The best result though? It means more people walk away from the night saying that was “THE BEST WEDDING RECEPTION EVER”.

Look, Collaborate & Listen

Getting all of your vendors on the same page is huge. Every one has a job to do, and being respectful and mindful of one another is key. Make sure each one of your vendors has the same timeline so when the big day comes around, they all know when and where key events are happening.

People Love…LOVE

Just be you! Pay no attention to the cameras, to all the smiling faces, to the stresses of everyone else. Essentially, pay no attention to all the attention! Try not to worry about all the curveballs that can come up on your wedding day. Remember the reason you’re doing all of this. You found the love of your life. You found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. These moments are truly only once in a lifetime. So take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your day! Smile often, laugh even more, and dance the night away!
