Because music is such an intrinsic part of an Indian wedding, from the sangeet to the baraat to the reception, it’s crucial to find the right DJ to keep up the energy and excitement from beginning to end.
This person will also have to serve as an emcee for the most important events, as well as providing all the audio and visual effects throughout the various ceremonies.
So here are some things to keep in mind when searching for the best DJ for your Indian wedding.
Of course there are literally thousands of DJs available for any event, but South Asian weddings can encompass a range of traditions and religions.
Be sure to find one who is sensitive to your culture and knows the difference between, for example, a Hindu and a Sikh ceremony, or how to communicate effectively with the pandit during the ceremony.
The Indian wedding in America embraces both the older traditions along with newer touches. You’re likely to have relatives from India present who are used to the way weddings are conducted there, as well as younger friends from this country who may be expecting to dance to pop or alt rock.
So carefully review the wedding song list with the DJ to be sure they can accommodate your wishes.
Because Indian weddings differ from American nuptials, it’s important that a DJ have a great deal of experience with the former.
In addition to the music, what type of lighting services do they offer? Do they have samples of their work on Instagram or YouTube?
So ask questions, and check references and online reviews. They don’t necessarily have to be Indian if they have enough experience with the type of wedding you want to have.
A venue that accommodates
One of the most popular venues for Indian weddings in Miami is the Historic Alfred I. duPont Building. Originally an Art Deco bank vault built by the financier Alfred I. duPont, its extravagant marble walls and floors, huge ballrooms, and ornate decor make an ideal setting for any of the numerous events associated with an Indian wedding.
And if you prefer to adhere to the muhurat and hold your wedding in the middle of the night as is often done in India, the duPont can accommodate you, because we have no curfew. Following the phere, the guests can party all night here if they wish!
