Groomsmen dance with bride We asked wedding entertainment company Celebration Roadshow about how to pick the right wedding DJ for you...

Finding the right DJ is so much more than just finding someone to stick on some tunes. Wedding days are filled with love, friendship, emotions and memories; choosing a great DJ will ensure all of these things are continued well beyond the first dance. On the subject of the first dance, this is the highlight of your evening celebration and should be set up and introduced by your DJ with all the love such a moment deserves.

Ensuring your music reflects your preferences is key to a great party. The best way to do this is by engaging with your DJ on the phone or preferably in person before you confirm your booking. It's important that your chosen expert can provide the type of music and atmosphere you're after at the most important party you'll ever throw. Some DJs offer some sort of music selection, either via email or with online tools. Use these – they're you're friend! The more insight your DJ has into who you are, the better they can tailor the music to your tastes.

Songs that have special meaning should all be given credit. Perhaps you have a favourite song from a holiday or college nights out – they'll all trigger great memories for your guests. Don't forget the hen and stag do anthems! Lastly, don't overthink it – choose an expert and give them the right information, and they'll do that for you.
