Our number one priority is to make your wedding experience one that is elegant and classy, traditional yet unique, and most importantly as stress-free as possible. When making the decision on who to trust with “The Most Important Day of Your Life” please consider the following statistics from a recent survey taken of brides after their weddings:

  • 72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment. This happens because they make a quick decision, and look for the cheapest DJ.
  • Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment. This is the result of number one above. Cheap is never the best; all DJs are not trained in wedding reception entertainment, and not ALL are professionals.
  • During wedding planning, 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! This again is the result of both one and two above. This tells us that 78% of the brides surveyed, after looking back at the outcome of their reception, would have taken the time to manipulate their budget so they could have retained a professional DJ. Don’t be the bride that can only recall all the unpleasant memories of her reception, because of the unprofessional abilities of a budget DJ.
  • When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment. Not the food, not the flowers, not the cake, the entertainment. It only makes good sense to provide your guest with professional quality entertainment. It is an entertainment function, a celebration, and your guests are looking forward to having FUN.
  • 65% of all couples that chose a band to entertain at their wedding said if they had it to do over again, they would have chosen a disc jockey. Bands can only play the music they know. Often they are not trained in wedding reception Emcee skills and coordination. You’re limited to only the music the band knows. With a professional DJ you get all the music you need to reach everyone’s taste, from the youngest to the oldest.

Nearly all brides believe that entertainment is the determining factor in the success of their event. While you can always find a “good price,” the more important question should be, what is the “value” that you will receive? Remember, you only have one chance to do it right.


Don’t forget to ask the Entertainers you interview the following questions:

  • Do they use professional grade equipment and have back-up equipment available?
  • Do they have extensive experience with weddings?
  • Do they have a solid reputation with their peers, with the public, and within the wedding industry?
  • Do they have a variety of music available?
  • Can they provide music for your wedding ceremony (if necessary)?
  • Are they insured?
  • Do they belong to any professional organizations?
  • Do they have backup disc jockeys available in case of an emergency?

You may find out that with just a "good price" entertainer, it may be the worst money you ever save.

Y? Entertainment is a full-service company we typically invest 20 to 25 hours into your wedding verses the "4 to 6 hours" listed on your contract. Consultations, music research, preparation, set-up and tear-down, travel to and from the event, education and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your wedding day. Our attention to detail, exceptional service and solid reputation have consistently exceeded brides’, wedding coordinators’, and event planners’ expectations.

Online Wedding Planner

Each one of our clients is provided an “online wedding planner”. This planner is vital to the success of your wedding. It is broken down into several sections that, when filled out completely, will provide your entertainer with all the necessary information to execute an event that will have you and your guests saying, “Is it already over?...I don’t want it to be over!” instead of “When will this ever be over?”
