Can you imagine what the world would be like without music? It sure would be boring, wouldn't it? It would definitely be a world where I don't think I would last more than a few days. If you are like most modern brides and grooms, you probably have an Iphone or Android full of your favorite music. The music is probably arranged into numerous playlists. Perhaps you have a "girls night out" playlist, or a playlist you use for your yoga class on Saturday mornings, or even a playlist you use for those heavy duty cardio days. Well, if you are going to go to that great an effort to organize and compartmentalize your music into various activities of your life, then why wouldn't you do the same for one of the most important days of your life. Your Wedding day here in Charleston. You've dreamed about this day coming up here in Charleston. Your guests are coming here from all over the country. The wedding DJ / entertainment you choose for your Charleston wedding must be looked upon as one of the vital pieces of the puzzle to ensure you and your guests have the best time ever. But, still, even as we get ready to turn over into 2019, brides and grooms are still making the same mistakes when selecting their Charleston Wedding DJ.

If you do it the right way when you hire the best wedding DJ for your biggest day in Charleston, you should also be getting a top notch MC. There are some misconceptions about DJs and MCs. Some people I've spoke with believe they are actually two separate people, and that they need to hire both. This is not true. If you hire a true professional wedding DJ, you will not only be getting the person who will properly mix your music throughout your day, but also the one who makes your announcements at the right time to make sure the flow goes smoothly. Mixing your music is important, but hiring someone who can adequately handle all your announcements with the utmost professionalism is equally as important. I cannot emphasize it enough that if your DJ / MC does not sound pleasing on the microphone, you and your guests will be in for a potentially agonizing wedding reception.

We're inside another engagement season here in Charleston. There will be lots of happy couples making that ultimate decision to spend the rest of their lives together. And after she says "yes", those couples will have make a decision to possibly get married in Charleston, which is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. But even as we near the beginning of 2019, the entertainment and / or wedding DJ still are being marginalized and tend to be placed on the backburner. There are lots of people out there that think being a wedding DJ in Charleston is ONLY about setting up some expensive equipment and pushing a button or two to play music. As one of the best Charleston wedding DJs, I feel that I am obligated to continue to educate the masses that a true professional wedding DJ's job begins long before your wedding day.

Perhaps it was the announcement of the remake of The Lion King due out in theaters in the summer of 2019, or maybe it was because I heard his classic Christmas song on the radio recently. Elton John's music is consistently showing up on playlists all over at Charleston weddings. Truth be told, this particular blog post has been on my to-do list for a few months now. Over the years, I've seen the music of Elton John fit nicely into a cocktail hour or some of his slower ballads be perfect for conversations over dinner at many Charleston weddings. Elton John has sold an astonishing 300 million records, and has had over 50 Top 40 hits, and 7 straight Number 1 albums here in the United States. 21 years ago when Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car accident, Elton John rewrote "Candle In The Wind" and dedicated the remake of the song to Diana. The single ended up selling over 30 million copies and became the top selling single of all the time in England, as well as the United States. As one of the best Charleston wedding DJs, music is my passion and my sole focus as a DJ. I hope you'll enjoy this post outlining some of the biggest hits from Elton John heard over the years at Charleston weddings.
