So you’re here because your boots weren’t made for walking, right? You’ve come to the right place! Not only has DJ Staci played everywhere from the world famous Brandin’ Iron Saloon to this year’s Stagecoach Festival, but Country Wedding DJ is a cutting edge, innovative wedding service. Here are 20 unique + different things about Country Wedding DJ.
DJ Staci is a female! Most of CWDJ’s clients say that they like the idea of working with a female DJ because, as a former bride herself, DJ Staci has a perspective most wedding DJs do not.
As you may have guessed from the name “Country WEDDING DJ,” 95% of the events handled by DJ Staci are weddings.
Don’t know how to country dance? Not a problem! Most of Country Wedding DJ’s clients don’t. DJ Staci offers a “country dancing boot camp” to teach you + your bridal party how to line dance, two step, and more.
Country Wedding DJ offers the most comprehensive country wedding music guide anywhere. Really.
DJ Staci uses a custom facade (portable screen) to hide her speakers and cables so your wedding looks less like a rock concert and more like an rustic or shabby chic affair. CWDJ customizes the look of the facade by matching the fabric to your colors or theme. DJ Staci also thinks tripods and trusses aren’t what you want to see in your wedding pictures. So you won’t see any of those in her set-up either.
All Country Wedding DJ packages include what DJ Staci calls “custom voice-over soundbites.” Basically, DJ Staci records the bride (for example) talking about her favorite memory of childhood with her dad then plays the recording while fading up the Father-Daughter song. Did you just get chills? Yea. It creates a moment, and none of your guests have ever seen anything like it before!
Want to give your guests something more memorable than the “Electric Slide” and “Cupid Shuffle”? DJ Staci is a professional line dance teacher. She can teach them the “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “Good Time,” “Slappin’ Leather,” “Tush Push,” “Watermelon Crawl,” and many, many more.
CWDJ offers a traditional digital photo booth, of course, but DJ Staci also has a Polaroid photo station. Have a Polaroid guestbook…or have your guests write marriage advice on the back of their photos and stick it in a special box for you to open on your first anniversary!
Other DJs will say, “Ladies + gentlemen, your attention for the first dance.” DJ Staci will say, “On July 4th, 2013, Ben got down on one knee, took a ring out of his pocket, and asked Anna to marry him. She had already booked the wedding venue but pretended to be surprised! Now we write another chapter in their love story…their first dance as husband and wife.” DJ Staci makes personalized announcements to share your love story (and inside jokes).
In a recent article in Mobile Beat magazine, a San Diego photographer said, “There has only been one DJ in my 7 year career that has ever emailed me prior to the wedding to introduce himself, share the timeline with me, and ask for my thoughts regarding it…The DJ valued my needs.” Advance communication with your vendor team is not done by many DJs…it’s standard practice for Country Wedding DJ. See a sample detailed script/timeline that DJ Staci preps + share with your vendors.
Want a nightclub environment at your wedding? The missing piece of that puzzle is setting up a lounge area. CWDJ offers gorgeous lounge sets. Create a mingling space so your guests have more options than either dance or go home.
You probably already have a toaster and crockpot, right? Ask your guests for the gift of an unforgettable wedding! In addition to offering flexible payment plans, you can also register for CWDJ’s services! View a sample Ciderr.com registry here.
You may notice there is no “clients log-in” section on CWDJ’s website. DJ Staci does not pawn her clients off on some impersonal, automated planning system. DJ Staci will interview you and your fiance separately + together to prepare. Playlists and special versions of songs are shared via email or Drop Box.
Country Wedding DJ offers gorgeous + tasty candy buffets. DJ Staci coordinates the color of the candy to match your theme and preferences.
The other guys like to brag about their toys. Ask the competition if they have a 2,000 watt subwoofer…CWDJ does!
There are so many variables that will affect the dancing at your wedding (temperature, lighting, time of day, if game 6 of the World Series is on at the same time, etc), but the room lay-out is one of the single biggest (controllable) factors. DJ Staci will help you plan the room lay-out to maximize dancing.
Create a unique + fun dance environment with a stunning, customized dance floor canopy (a four-poled structure with string lights, paper lanterns, ribbons, or whatever style of “dance floor ceiling” you desire).
Give your guests an unexpected treat by busting out into a fun dance with your bridesmaids! DJ Staci choreographs “surprise dances” and mixes the custom music to accompany them.
DJ Staci invests in training herself to become a better DJ + MC. For example, she attended the Mobile Beat DJ Conference this year (and is headed to the Wedding MBA in September), completed Randy Bartlett’s 1% Solution series for mobile DJs, and is mentoring with the most elite group of wedding DJs in the world, the Wedding Entertainment Director’s Guild.
DJ Staci is bilingual! She lived in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for several years handling both destination weddings and local events. Additionally, when she first started DJing, she worked with a Chicano partner in the US, and they primarily DJed bilingual + intercultural events.
