Weddings

Congratulations on your engagement!

Welcome to the Premier Entertainment website. Since you’re here, we’ll assume that the planning has begun, and we’d like to help.

Premier Entertainment has been helping couples celebrate their wedding day since 1988. During that time, we’ve worked closely with thousands of couples to help them design a wedding reception that is unique, memorable, classy and fun.

We understand that for most people, choosing a DJ is a very difficult and yet very important decision. What to ask? How to determine who’s really good, and who’s really cheesy? Since everybody CLAIMS to be “the best” how do you narrow the field and find just the right fit?

There are hundreds of DJs in the Sacramento area, ranging from your neighbor’s cousin who just likes playing his music real loud, to consummate professionals. How do you know which is which?


YOU’RE CHOOSING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, INSTEAD OF A COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHER, RIGHT? A DJ MIGHT BE AWESOME FOR A HIGH SCHOOL DANCE, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR WEDDING.


First, we suggest starting with a wedding specialist. You’re choosing a wedding photographer, instead of a commercial photographer, right? A DJ might be awesome for a high school dance, but that doesn’t mean they are right for your wedding.

 

Second, ask around. People in the industry should know your DJ. If not, why don’t they?

Third, do your homework. This is not a decision which can be made over the phone, any more than you would choose your dress or your photographer by phone. When you meet with your DJ, insist on seeing video footage of them at a wedding so you can judge their skills on the microphone. You wouldn’t dream of hiring a photographer without seeing their work, would you? So why would you hire your entertainment, the one service that all of your guests will experience, without seeing their work?

Next, check references. Really. Understand that anyone can supply you with good references, but not all good references are equal. Find out WHY the client loved their DJ. Talk to several of their references. Do they all say the same thing? If so, maybe that company provides a cookie cutter approach. This day is too important for that.

Finally, read The Best Wedding Reception… Ever by Peter Merry. This book has been written especially for couples looking to create the most fun, personal, unique, and memorable wedding reception… EVER! It is packed with great ideas on everything related to the entertainment for your wedding.

From hiring your team of pros to planning the timeline, from scouting for locations to unique endings, this book has hundreds of great ideas assembled from some of the best Wedding Entertainment Directors™ around the country. It’s easy and fun to read and your fiancé, parents, and wedding party will get a kick out of going through the great ideas contained in the book.

In fact, we think the book is so great, we purchased it by the caseload and we are giving a free copy to every couple who books us. Even if you don’t choose Premier Entertainment, you can still purchase the book from us for only $25, or you can order it from thebestweddingreceptionever.com or amazon.com.
