It was pretty impossible to miss, but last weekend there was a royal wedding and stories from the after-party have started seeping into mainstream media.
James Corden instigated an impromptu dance-off featuring Charles, William, Harry, Meghan and her mother. Serena Williams was beer pong champion and George Clooney was the last person on the dancefloor. It sounds like a movie scene written by Hunter S. Thompson.
We’re obviously most interested in the DJ and music choices. Whitney’s classic ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ was the first dance, there was plenty of 80s pop played DJ Sam Totolee and Idris Elba performed a soul classics set.
Back in February we mentioned how having two DJs was going to be a trend in 2018, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex obviously read that blog post. It may seem extravagant, but don’t worry, you don’t need to be royalty to have two DJs at your wedding.
You can book one of our ‘regular’ DJs to get everyone on the dancefloor and play some classics, then if you’ve got a bit of a budget (anywhere from £3-7k) you might want to opt for a celebrity/bigger name DJ to play a headline slot for 2 hours.
A lot of venues now have sound limits meaning the music has to be off by midnight and from our experience, the party is only just getting started by then! A way to combat this is using silent disco headphones and having two DJs play contrasting styles to create a multi-genre dance-off.
