Choose A DJ That Is Right For You - When DJ hunting, it’s really important to see if the person behind the decks resonates with you. Is she or he open to your inputs? At the same time, is the DJ honest with you about whether the music you request will get your guests dancing? What you are looking for is someone who will work with you to create that vibe as you have envisioned for your special day.
Have A Spacious Dance Floor - Small dance floors get too cramped and big ones make people too self-conscious. A good rule of thumb: There should be at least three square feet of dance floor space for every two guests. So, if you have 150 guests, you would need a 15′ x 15′ dance floor; 200 guests would be about an 18′ x 18′ area; 400 guests calls for about 25′ x 25′ of space.
Ask Your Guests For Suggestions - There’s really no shame in asking your guests what keeps them grooving. Be open to suggestions. After all it’s your wedding and you want guests to have an epic time on your day, but do ensure that your playlist appeals to a wide set of people.
Unleash A Party Starter - Give your guests a treat they won’t expect by introducing a never-seen-that-before act. Think break dancers or flamenco dancers or something you reckon would ‘wow’ your guests! You may want to tweak your timing of introducing your party starters at a time right before you want your guests to storm the dance floor.
And, Finally, Hit The Floor Yourself - The number one thing you can do to keep people dancing is to be out on the dance floor yourself. Guests always want to be where the newlyweds are, so don’t spend more than half the evening on the stage – get out on the dance floor and your family and friends will undoubtedly want to join you!
