|During wedding planning, most Brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and caterer. Reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
If you don’t have any entertainment, then most of your guests will leave right after they eat. Conversely, if you didn’t have any food, but still had entertainment, most would probably stay for a least a short while. When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment and the fun they had.
These are real statistics taken from major bridal industry sources and publications.

One Of The Biggest Mistakes That You Can Make, Is Having The DJ Set Up Away From The Dance Floor… This usually involves placing some Guests between the DJ and the dance floor, and is a recipe for a lackluster event.(a) The Guests immediately in front will want the DJ to turn it down. The Guests on the dance floor will want the DJ to turn it up. The DJ will be distracted all evening trying to find a compromise between these two groups.
(b) The DJ will be too far away from the dance floor to focus the lights where they belong, on the dance floor. This is a similar problem as in (a). The lights will be too bright for the Guests sitting in front of the DJ, so they will have to be aimed somewhere at the ceiling, thus making the dance floor too dark.
