Wedding DJ Packages

What's Included in the PROFESSIONAL DJ Package

This package is not just a DJ with some playlist and special songs… it’s designed to be the “Gold Standard” for wedding entertainment, providing comprehensive coverage for your wedding day.

5 Reasons to get the Pro DJ Package for your wedding

(You'll love what you find inside!)

REASON #1: Pre-Event Planning (Value $395)

There is an old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.  This is especially true when it comes to planning your wedding reception.

What would happen if you hired a DJ without any pre-event planning?
Would they know what songs to play and when to play them?
Would your wedding be just a cookie-cutter event just like every other wedding?

Pre-planning your wedding is one of the most important secrets to the success of your wedding reception.

That is why we include it with our package, because we want to have the best opportunity to succeed.

When you are planning your wedding, you want to make sure you can get ahold of your wedding vendors to get your questions answered in a timely manner. 

Our full-time staff is here to assist in the planning process at any time leading up to your wedding.  We’re always reachable on-phone, in-person, or online.

Your pre-event planning is easy and stress free:

REASON #2: Your Wedding Ceremony (Value $425)

Wedding Ceremony

It’s important that everyone at your wedding can hear the officant loud and clear, and that music fades in and out at the correct time so there aren’t any awkward moments.

  • Want a small ceremony sound system so that your guests can hear everything?
  • Want a wireless microphone for officiant?
  • How about an additional microphone available for a reader?
  • Want prelude music playing 30 Minutes before the ceremony start as guests arrive?
  • Want the wedding party processional song to start on time and fade out correctly?
  • Want your processional song to start at the correct moment and fade out once you’re standing up front?
  • Want a unity ceremony song to play while you light a candle/pour sand/tie a knot/plant a tree?
  • Want a recessional song to start right as you’re introduced as a married couple?

That’s what our wedding ceremony package is all about!

Making sure your wedding ceremony, the most important part of your day, goes smoothly.

You will have a special “Wedding Ceremony Planner” available in your online planning account, to make planning this part of your day easy.

If you wanted to add the ceremony add-on separately, it would cost $425.

But with this package, you can enjoy knowing this is included already!

REASON #3: An Entertaining Reception (Value $600)

Cocktail Hour

Cocktail Hour

After the ceremony – your guests arrive at the venue, and your Professional DJ is playing music to set the mood.

Your DJ creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere as everyone mingles, enjoying drinks & hors d’oeuvres.

  • We create a curated playlist based on your style choice.
  • You may provide us with a specific playlist for the cocktail hour if you have already created one
Grand Entrance

Your Grand Entrance!

Dinner is about to start, your guests are seated, and it’s time for the Grand Entrance!

The wedding party is all lined up and ready to be introduced to kick-off the festivities…

Your DJ fades the background music, and gets the rooms attention.

Your DJ hits “play” on your Grand Entrance Song, and introduces your wedding party into the room…

It’s time for YOU to be introduced, and your DJ announces you as you come through the door to a standing ovation!

Dinner Buffet

Dinner

Everyone is now seated, and your DJ introduces and gives the microphone to the person who will give the blessing.

Dinner is served!  If dinner is a buffet, your DJ can manage inviting the tables to the buffet if your caterer or venue does not have someone to do that.

So that you can enjoy your meal, and let your guests have some fun at the same time.

Dinner Music: For dinner, we will play the music at a soft volume so that everyone in the room can hear the music, without being disruptive to your guests conversations.

Speeches and Toasts
Wedding DJ Provides microphone for speeches and toasts

REASON #4: An Epic Dance Party! (Value $425)

First Dance

Spotlight Dances

It’s time for your first dance!

The lights come down, as your DJ introduces you for your First Dance as a married couple.

You get to share the spotlight and dance with the love of your life, dancing to the song that you picked.

Your DJ has already made sure that dad is ready and waiting nearby for the Father/Daughter dance, and that mom is also ready for the Mother/Son dance so there are no awkward pauses after you finish your first dance and transition into the parent dances.

You can choose to end the spotlight dances with a “Wedding Party Dance” to bring the entire wedding party together and get the party started!

Epic Dance Party

Dance Party!

With all of the days formalities completed, it’s time to PARTY!

Your DJ gets your guests involved and dancing, playing the best music to match your crowd.

In the planning process leading up to your wedding, you can pick and choose as much or as little of the music for the dance as you want.

  • Must Play List – Songs that you absolutely want to dance to yourself
  • Play If Possible List – Songs you like, and you think your guests will like, but if you miss a song, or one does not get played, its no biggie
  • Play ONLY If Requested List – Songs you do not like, but if you want to keep your guests happy, and they request it, then it’s OK to play it
  • DO NOT PLAY List – Songs that will cause the APOCALYPSE to happen if played on your wedding day.
Bouquet Toss

Special Events

During the dance party, there are several more special moments and events that you may choose to have at your wedding.

These moments and events are OPTIONAL, and included in your package if you want them.

The Dollar Dance

A northland tradition, the dollar dance is a receiving line set to music where your guests give you money to help fund your honeymoon!   (We recommend that the dollar dance last no longer than 15-20 minutes)

The Garter & Bouquet Toss

A longtime wedding tradition, you may choose to do just one or both.  Your Pro Sound & Light Show DJ is trained to make sure this moment is fun, light hearted, and appropriate.

Anniversary Dance or Longest Married Couple Competition

A fun way to recognize the couples in your lives who have been blessed with long marriages.  Your DJ can do the traditional Anniversary Dance, or they can do our exclusive longest married couple competition which is more upbeat and memorable.

Fun Dancing

Games & Interactions

You want your wedding to be FUN! A celebration of your love as two families come together.

Your DJ has been trained and is experienced using different games and interactions as part of their toolbox to make sure your guests are having a good time.

These are optional interactions that we use as transitions, if needed, between events and activities.

Example:
The dance floor is packed and it’s time to do the dollar dance. Instead of killing the vibe, a game is played to redirect everyones energy and attention and transition into the more low-key energy of the dollar dance.

Shoe Game

The Shoe Game – A fun game to play right before your first dance to gather everyones attention and get to know more about the two of you…

Musical Chair Scavenger Hunt

Musical Chair Scavenger Hunt – We’re known for, and are recommended by many, because of this game. A fun interaction to transition from dancing into the dollar dance or bouquet toss…

Dance Competition

Dance Off! – A fun & quick competition to see who is the better dancer.  A good interaction for earlier in the night…

REASON #5: Trusted and Award Winning

About Your DJ

Your Professional DJ will be scheduled 30-60 days before your event.  The majority of our amazing, award winning wedding DJs are working events 3-4 weekends each month.  So to manage everyones schedules, time-off, vacation plans, etc.  our Entertainment Manager assigns the best-fit DJ based on the information we get during the planning process.

Experience Is The Difference

The biggest difference between our DJs is their Experience Level.  This is based on the number of events they have performed at, the amount of additional training above & beyond what we provide in-house, and the quality and quantitiy of their reviews from past clients.

While our training program is comprehensive and ensures that our Professional DJs can take care of your event, there are just some things that only come with experience.  Such as handling a drunk uncle, or knowing the in’s & outs of your venue because they have performed there a dozen times before.

Can I Pick My DJ?

Short Answer: Yes. If there is a specific DJ you would like to personally request, we will verify their availability for your date. If they are available, there is a Pre-Selected DJ Fee.

For private events (weddings, birthdays, etc.) we require a non-refundable down payment/deposit when you reserve ($199) to secure your date. The balance is due 14 days or more in advance of your event.

Yes, there is a monthly payment option on the Entertainment Agreement. You can choose to have equal payments charged to a credit or debit card up until the month before your event to pay the balance. Of course you can also make any size payments that you want along the way by phone, mail, in person, or through your online planning account on our website.

This is the easiest way to complete this document.  We need the Entertainment Agreement back as soon as possible in order to complete your DJ reservation.

Next are the planning forms. It is easiest to fill these out through your online planning account on our website. Just check the emails we have sent to you or contact us for your login information.

If you prefer paper, use our exclusive Wedding Reception Planner.

All of these forms should be completed and returned to us 30 days or more in advance of your event or as soon as possible

We can play any kind of music that you want. For a complete list of our standard system music, go to www.pro-1.com/music. It is easiest to provide your music requests through your online planning account.

Our DJs are all experienced professionals and know what the hit songs are in each category and decade of music. So you don’t have to pick out all of the music. In fact, the best events we perform at have a balance of the client’s and guest’s requests combined with songs that the DJ knows will keep your guests up and dancing.

Tip on requesting music: The very best parties always have a mixture of songs that please and entertain all age groups. Most events have between 3 to 5 hours of dancing and that works out to about 55 – 70 songs. We suggest that you pick out roughly 5 – 20 songs in addition to the most important songs for your event. We would like to have your online planning tools or Wedding Reception Planner/Song Request Form completed 30 days or more prior to your event

Absolutely! Although we have just about every song that people like to dance to, occasionally a client will have an older or hard to find song that they want to hear. You can provide the DJ with compact discs of special music you want played at your event. Be sure to label your music with your name and phone number, indicate which songs you want played, and remember to pick them up at the end of the event

Our DJs normally arrive 1-2 hours in advance of the scheduled music start time. The equipment set up is completed just prior to the music start time. Please make arrangements to have the location open and accessible at least several hours prior to the start time. If you need our equipment set up earlier than this, just let us know. There is a small charge for early set up (for the DJ’s time to wait for your event to start).

Yes, we can play music for your wedding ceremony and provide microphones for the officiant and a reader. This is included in the Pro DJ or Deluxe packages, or added as a separate add-on for $425.

If you need to make changes along the way, just contact us or request a change through your online planning account. We are happy to change or add options, times, etc., just contact us as early as possible. In most cases we can even change your event’s date if needed. Again, contact us as early as possible.

If you want the DJ to play longer during your event just ask them. Our DJs are happy to play longer than the agreed upon time if you request it. At your event, the rate per hour is decided on between you and the DJ. Occasionally a DJ may not be able to stay longer than originally stated in the Entertainment Agreement. The best way to insure that you have all the performance time you want is to reserve it 14 days or more in advance of your event date.

Yes! Your DJ/MC will carefully coordinate all of the activities of your event. You can let your DJ know what you want through your online planning account, Wedding Reception Planner or Song Request Form. Your DJ can also share ideas with you for coordinating and organizing your event that they’ve learned from other successful events

Yes, your DJ will contact you the week before your event. Before calling, your DJ will review your online planning account, Wedding Reception Planner or Song Request Form to get a feel for how you want your event to go. This is a great opportunity to get to know your DJ and for your DJ to get to know you better. You can discuss any last minute questions you may have.

For most formal events (weddings, proms, etc.) your DJ will wear a suit or tux during the performance. After a few hours when the dance floor heats up, we will sometimes take our suit or tux jacket off. During the set up and pack up of the equipment, our DJ’s will wear casual dress clothes. For less formal events (school dances, birthday parties, etc.) your DJ will wear casual dress clothes. You may also request specific attire to be worn for a particular themed party or holiday.
 
Yes! Our equipment can handle a standard RCA type stereo input from most audio visual devices. Let us know as early as possible about your specific needs. It’s also best to have the DJ and equipment set up somewhat close to the device because of the cord length limitations.
 
We can travel anywhere you need us, some locations may require a special quote. Generally we perform throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan.
 
All we require at the location is a 6’ x 10’ or larger area, a standard 6 or 8 foot heavy duty banquet table, 2 chairs, and 2 separate 20 amp standard grounded electrical outlets within 25 feet of the DJ area. The DJ area should be next to the dance floor. If the DJ area is outdoors and exposed to the open weather, we will require an alternate covered location in case of inclement weather.
 

Meals, while not required, are appreciated. Sure, just let us know so the DJ can plan for that. Our staff never consumes alcoholic beverages, however providing ice water and soft drinks is greatly appreciated.
