Hosting an Engagement Party? Here's Why You Should Hire a DJ
So you just got engaged. Before you and your fiance get into serious wedding planning mode, you decide you want to throw an engagement party to celebrate the happy news with your closest friends and family.
Although engagement parties are usually more low-key and informal than the wedding itself, there's still a lot of planning that goes into it. Depending on your budget, you may be thinking about what to do for entertainment to ensure your guests have a great time.
Hurricane Productions offers DJ and MC entertainment services for all special occasions, including engagement parties. If you're about to start planning yours, here are a few good reasons to consider booking a DJ for an engagement party.
Your guests will enjoy live entertainment.
If you're hosting your engagement party at a private venue or banquet hall, you'll probably want some background music while your guests enjoy brunch, lunch, or dinner with you. Sure, you can make a Spotify playlist and hook up a speaker, but a DJ will be able to take requests and mix in real time, creating a unique experience for your guests. DJs are also generally more affordable than live musicians or bands, which are popular alternatives for engagement party entertainment.
It's a good chance to give your wedding DJ a test run.
Entertainment can make or break a wedding, and there's no better way to see how your DJ and MC interact with a crowd than watching them in action. By hiring the same DJ company for your engagement party and your wedding, you can give your DJ a "test run" for your wedding reception to confirm your decision and make sure they're a good fit for your guests.
You might be able to save money.
If you haven't already booked your wedding DJ, consider hiring Hurricane Productions for both your engagement party and your wedding day. We love bundling services for our clients, and for a limited time, we're offering a discount to clients who book entertainment for multiple wedding events.
Thinking about a photo booth for your engagement party? We can help you save money there, too: When you book an entertainment package, you'll receive a discounted rate on our attended open-air or enclosed photo booths. A photo booth is a great way to keep your guests entertained when they're not on the dance floor -- plus, they'll have a fun souvenir of your engagement party to take home!
