There’s no doubt about it: DJs make the party.
DJs are an essential component at most wedding receptions. Tradition dictates that we look forward to the couple’s “first dance” and the bride’s special dance with her father. It’s also a place to let it all out, if you’re a guest or a member of the wedding party.
But what if the wedding planners decided to add some fun and surprise to the event? The DJ can be a great ally in arranging this. Don’t hesitate to ask them.
There are many fun games and activities you can add to your dance floor activities that are sure to be a hit.
Try a fun game of the “chicken dance.” Maybe that doesn’t sound too original. But if most of your guests are just sitting at their tables, watching a few brave couples dancing, or just finishing their meals, and you might want to get everyone up to have fun. Try this game.
The DJ announces a number. Everyone looks under his or her chair, where there is a number. Depending on the number of guests at the wedding, there might be only numbers “1” and “2” or more, up to 5.
Let’s say the DJ announces number “4”. Each person checks under their chair to see what their number is. These numbers can be written simply on a piece of masking tape and affixed to the underside of the chairs when the reception is being set up. Each “4” in this scenario will head to the dance floor to do the chicken dance with the other “4s”. Not only does this get people out of their chairs and on to the dance floor, they get to know other wedding reception guests they might not otherwise know.
One dance floor activity that’s gaining popularity is to bring in a dance teacher for the wedding reception. As a kind of pre-dance activity, the teacher will quickly walk people through their paces on the dance floor, perhaps teaching a bit of the waltz or, for something completely different, a little bit of the tango, before the music officially begins and dancing commences.
Photo booths are always a hit at special events, including weddings. They are a magnet for folks to enter with goofy masks and outlandish adornments. It really is a lot of fun and professional New Jersey DJs like Gemini DJs offer this service as well.
