What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Understand how the venue lay out will impact on your disco. If the bar or seating arrangements are away from where the party is at, you will have people coming and going rather than staying to interact with the DJ. This makes it difficult for the DJ to judge if he he playing the right songs for the guests, or to build momentum by looking at the response from the guests.

DJ taking a moment to congratulate the guests on their dancing, and encourage them to suggest more of their favourite songs
