The Truth About The Best Charleston Wedding DJs: Most Are Owner Operated

Recently in between weddings and private events, I've been finding myself heading out to the beach to enjoy what has become a rather HOT Fall wedding season here in Charleston. While temperatures in the lower 90s are not totally out of the ordinary during the first week of October, they might be a bit of a downer for those brides coming down to the Holy City expecting some cooler Fall breezes.  Despite being in the thick of the Fall rush with weddings and other private parties, some of my focus has begun to flip calendars over to 2019. It's hard to believe we're only about 6 weeks away from the start of yet another engagement season here in Charleston.

31 First Dance Song Choices For Your Modern Wedding Playlist

The first dance is one of the times during the reception where the spotlight is solely on the bride and groom. All eyes are focused on the beautiful couples as they dance to their special song. When a bride and groom are planning the music for their wedding reception, this is the one song that they should put some time and extra thought to ensure the song that they have chosen is the most meaningful it can be.  The type of first dance song that you should choose is completely up to you. Some brides and grooms look to choose a song that is lesser known. Some couples may opt for traditional songs from Elvis Presley or Etta James, or even a country song.  Whatever you decide on, remember that music is powerful, and your first dance will be one of those moments that you will forever cherish for the rest of your life.

Top Wedding DJ in Charleston Weddings Magazine: Spring 2016

 Ever since the beginning of 2014,  I've been an advertiser inside the premier wedding magazine for the modern bride and groom. The more I met with brides and grooms, the more I saw them bring a copy of this beautiful magazine with them to our meetings and consultations.  There are plenty of substitutes and wedding blogs that have popped up over the years, but it's Charleston Weddings Magazine that remains the preeminent source for wedding inspiration. When you pick up your copy of Charleston Weddings Magazine, you'll soon find out it features some of the top wedding vendors in the Charleston, SC area. You'll also find a wide variety of "Real Wedding" stories and venue features that allow brides to get all dreamy from looking at all the very pretty pictures.  As one of the top wedding DJs in the Holy City, it was one of my goals way back when to get a full page ad inside the preeminent wedding magazine of Charleston so that my company could be in front of the eyes of the modern bride.  As it pertains to wedding publications,  Charleston Weddings Magazine is the best for the destination, as well as local bride looking to plan her wedding in one of the world's top cities.

Third Straight Year: Couples Choice Award For Top Wedding DJ

Ever since the inception of Mike Bills Entertainment, it's been my goal to perform for modern brides and grooms at a high level. That performance would begin with the development of a website that is intuitive and friendly, as well as mobile friendly. As an owner-operated DJ service, I do it all. From the marketing to the booking to the actual execution of your wedding day, I will be the wedding DJ at your wedding.  Every single business (especially if you are online) has to have a gauge, a barometer (if you will) of how successful they are. That success needs to be documented in the form of online reviews. Most modern brides and grooms use online reviews as a way to decide as to which wedding vendors they should be hiring for their most important day. If a business owner does not follow up with prior brides and grooms to determine  how their performance was, how do they improve? Enter The Weddingwire Couple's Choice Award.
