You put a ton of time into planning your wedding – but when the big night arrives, how do you make sure it’s fun for you and all of your guests? A lot of it can really come down to your entertainment – and that’s where a professional DJ company like Milwaukee Airwaves comes in.
We’ve worked with Milwaukee Airwaves for years and have been to several of their events, and even used them at our own events, so we can easily say they are an amazing DJ company. Which is why we are so excited they sponsored this article and we get to talk about how fantastic they are! 😉
Now read on to learn how hiring Milwaukee Airwaves as your wedding DJ and lighting provider will make your Milwaukee wedding rock.
1. It’s All About The Right Music
So why can’t you just fire up your Spotify playlist and rock out to it all night? It won’t work. A professional DJ will “feel” the crowd and curate your playlist on the spot, ensuring you and your guests are dancing all night.
We’ve all been at weddings where the DJ plays the traditional/cliche wedding songs throughout the night – and it isn’t much fun at all!! And definitely something you don’t need to worry about with Milwaukee Airwaves.
Specifically, Milwaukee Airwaves likes to mix it up playing a lot of b-sides and songs you don’t normally hear a wedding DJ play. Love 88Nine Radio Milwaukee? Then you’ll love the music Milwaukee Airwaves plays.
Don’t worry though – they still play those dance tunes that even your grandparents will groove to. They’ll also work with you to integrate your favorite tunes – so you’ll hear that song that you and your friends will remember dancing to for years to come.
2. It’s So Much More Than the Music
Yep, the music is important, but it’s not the only thing your DJ does. A professional DJ will keep your wedding rolling along throughout the night by serving as your emcee and helping to troubleshoot any issues.
They will also work with the other vendors to ensure all planned aspects of the evening happen without a hitch. Think of them as your go-to guys for a perfect party so you can focus on having fun.
From the cocktail hour, the first dance, the final song, even alerting your guests to the best man and maid of honor speeches, they’ll take control of your event so you can enjoy your party.
Weddings are big events with a ton parts to manage – and a big part of Milwaukee Airwaves‘ job is making these transitions seamless and and filling the gaps throughout the night. Your wedding is a party, and with a professional DJ running things you won’t have to worry about a thing.
3. Cool DJs That Enjoy It
A big part of your wedding experience will be the personality of the DJ. The cheesy, chicken-dance DJs aren’t what Milwaukee Airwaves is all about. Their DJs are all personable guys that take customer service (and customer fun) seriously.
Milwaukee Airwaves hand-selects their DJs to ensure they are polished, professional and of course, have great energy and great taste in music.
Every bride and groom will have the chance to meet with their DJ before the event so they feel comfortable going to him/her for whatever they might need throughout the night.
4. Amazing Uplighting Adds to the Vibe
We are huge fans of uplighting your venue, and Milwaukee Airwaves has several lighting options that can transform the look of your venue.
They offer package deals and a la carte options so you can go as bold or as understated as you like. But trust us, every event needs a little specialty lighting. Here’s each of the lighting options featured in the photos below:
- Custom GOBO Lights
- String Light Curtain
- Edison Bulb Cafe Lights
- Colored LED Venue Uplighting
5. Photobooth? Yes Please!
You hire a DJ to play music and get your party moving, and that should be your main priority. However, it’s great to get extras like uplighting or a photo booth. Milwaukee Airwaves can bring in their photo booth to help capture your friends and family in rare form.
Since they run it, you don’t have to worry about working with another company for payment, set up, etc. Their technology lets you pick custom backdrops, plenty of props and custom printouts so your guests leave with a fun and lasting memory of your special day.
6. Amazing Owners and Staff with Tons of Experience
Seriously though, Ramsey, the founder of Milwaukee Airwaves is one of our favorite people. Always positive, cool and on top of the latest trends, Ramsey and his amazing team of talented DJs will make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch.
Ramsey and his business partner Tyler Curran have been working in the industry for over 20 years. And between the two of them, they’ve helped produce and execute thousands of weddings. They’ve seen just about every situation and help fix every little snafu without the bride and groom ever catching wind of it. Fun Fact – they also produce one of our favorite wedding shows, WEDMKE!
