Tips from NOVA DJs to choose the perfect band for your wedding:

Know the format and presentation of the DJ chosen at weddings, to make sure they will fit the profile of the grooms.

Check if the DJ company has qualified and updated professionals regarding the musical repertoire. The sound and lighting structure is also fundamental. So that everything works from start to finish, make sure that the DJ brings their own sound/lighting equipment. Finally, it is essential that all the professionals involved in your event are committed to your dream: the celebration of your wedding.

A DJ who already has experience in this type of event, already knows what songs to play at the wedding party, as well as what musical selections raise the dance floor in 2020. They know when to interact with the audience and especially how to make the event unique and unforgettable.

Songs for wedding parties in 2020: what can’t be missed this year?

Songs that bring energy, regardless of genre or musical style.

Animated songs for wedding parties: how to guarantee a catchy track on the big day?

“Since DJs began to perform more casually and to interact with the public, requests for a repertoire of animated songs for wedding parties more played on the radios in 2020 have become frequent, as this ensures unparalleled dancing singing and participation on the dance floor”.

Another detail that makes all the difference to a super animated dance floor is the presence of the couple on the dance floor. This always ends up being the best invitation for everyone to dance and have fun until they can’t anymore!


“Today, with the various digital streaming services available on the market, this task has become much easier!” NOVA DJs suggest that the grooms create a suggested playlist on one of these platforms to facilitate this process.

Of course, songs that are remarkable for the couple’s history and that have everything to do with the bride and groom’s personality are essential!

When to hire a band, choir or DJ?

Before hiring DJs and musicians for the Big Day, it is always important to discuss and exchange information with the professionals. “It’s worth signing a contract up to a year before. During this period, it gives you time to choose and spend some time quietly discussing what the couple wants during the event”, explains DJ NOVI.

It’s possible to postpone this stage a bit, but the more carefree brides need to keep in mind that, from two to three months before the date, all the songs for the wedding ceremony should be selected. “This is the moment for the bride and groom to bring their suggestions. The more unique the event, the better,” says DJ NOVI.
