Hi, I’m Brent Monistere, owner of Dj Moni Entertainment.  I’m a professional Dj and Master of Ceremonies over 2 decades.

Any couple reading this must know some important things so I’ll get straight to the point.

When you get engaged, shortly after you start to think about your wedding and start planning for it.  There are several things that you don’t know and you basically go with the little information that you have when it comes to weddings.

As a newly engaged couple, you work together and think “ok we need to find a venue, a photographer, either a dj or a band, tuxedos, dresses, décor and so on.

You have an understanding of the essentials but you’re not going to know where to start or what you could be missing.

You start looking at average prices of weddings and the vendors you may need to hire for services.

The unfortunate thing about this is that couples see the numbers and get fixated on the fact that they need to stick within the specific “internet” budget.  They think that if they spend more, then it’s too expensive and spending less is “saving money.”

I’m here to tell you, that average prices equal average services.

My point is, you can’t just look at numbers and think you are automatically getting a high-quality vendor.

This is one day for the rest of your life.  Weddings are an investment, not an expense.  Couples and vendors should not be negotiating on costs.  This isn’t like buying a car or finding generic brands at the grocery store.

You don’t get to go back and redo your wedding day if something goes wrong.

Couples should have personal connections with their vendors.

It takes a team to make your wedding the best it can be.

Don’t get me wrong.  I understand that no one is made of money and can just spend and infinite amount on their wedding.

At the same time, this is a personal event.  It’s one of the most important days of your life.  Quality of service should be top of mind then you worry about the numbers later.

With all that said, I’m here to give you value and things you don’t know you need for wedding day.

What do I mean by value?  Definitely not the brand equipment I have or the cool lights or effects I can provide on wedding day.  Any Dj that spills that to you is not giving you any value at all.

The value I mean is how I will ensure your wedding has a smooth flow transition of events.  This also means that I take care of any stress behind-the-scenes.  That way, all you have to do is relax and enjoy time with your friends and family.

Now it’s not just about me the dj.  Remember earlier when I mentioned it takes a team to make a wedding happen? So let me expand on more “Service Value.”

I’ll have some other very important questions for you such as:  Are you hiring a Wedding Coordinator and Videographer?

I ask because I know you’ll have a photographer.  Many times, have I seen videographers get left out of weddings because of the “tight budget” and couples feel the need to “cut costs.” The same could go for wedding coordinators too.

You have to understand that if you want to cherish those memories of your ceremony and the reception party for years to come, a Videographer is a must.  Yes Photographers take pictures and it goes in your memory book or portfolio.  But don’t skip out on the videos.  Especially for the ceremony!

How about the Wedding Coordinator?  WC’s are the liaison executive between the couple and all the vendors that are part of the crew.  I’ve worked with many coordinators.  Your coordinator and dj are a dynamic duo to ensure a flawless wedding day.

All of these vendors are of equal priority but just at different times of your wedding.

(WC) Wedding Coordinator:  helps the couple prepare, plan and prevents overlooking any details that could be missed if you were to try to plan the wedding yourself.  They also ensure arrival time of all the vendors. They provide direction to vendors depending of where certain events will take place and where any tables or equipment to be setup.  WC will communicate with couple for any changes in the Timeline. WC takes highest priority before the wedding to plan and then is an on-site coordinator on wedding day.

DJ:  facilitates events and directs guests, maintains customized playlist delegated by the couple, master of ceremonies so everyone knows what events are to take place and when, makes quick decisions with WC should an event have to change or time swap with another event on the Timeline.  Note:  If there is no WC, then it falls on the Dj.  Dj also communicates with couple for any changes in Timeline. Dj also reads crowd to keep dance floor full.  Dj takes highest priority the day of your wedding.

Photographer/videographer:  works with WC and Dj to establish points of entry for ceremony, intros, placement for formal dances and garter/bouquet, cake cutting and any other special event to take place.  Takes highest priority after wedding day for editing pics and vids.

These are just a few samples of what I mean by the importance of having a good professional relationship with your vendors.

You can’t have a nice place to get married without the venue.

You can’t have great food without the caterers.

You can’t have beautiful flowers without the florist.

You can’t have your wedding prepped and planned without the Wedding coordinator.

You can’t reminisce about your wedding day for years to come without the photographer and videographer

Finally, you can’t have the best dance floor entertainment without the Dj.

You get the point by now.

Thanks for reading and I’ll hear from you soon!
