Keeping the right energy during the reception is crucial to keep everyone moving and having fun. You don’t want the music to lag, but you also need to think about the layout of your venue and placement of the dance floor.
DJ Brian Hartman, of Rock and Rhythm DJ Entertainment, said one of the most overlooked things in wedding planning is the ergonomics of the venue and the dance floor.
“Work with the DJ and your banquet manager to find the best arrangement of the DJ’s table and the dance floor,” he said. Keep the DJ near the floor; putting him or her in the corner behind a few dining tables is not a good idea when the party’s in the middle of the room.
