Tradition can be fun!

Tradition can be fun!  At this wedding a must play was "Taking Care of Business" by BTO.  As you can see, the family came together to sing along and dance.  That is what a wedding is about, right!
When planning your wedding day, ask your parents or relatives if there are any must play sings or traditions that need to be honored.  Maybe you even create your own tradition!

Shut up and play good music!

Too often a DJ at a wedding tries to hard to be the radio DJ he never was at a wedding.  Avoid the fake personality guys, they will creep your guests out.  People are motivated to dance by a song that fits the moment, not the DJ that tells you what year a song came out.  
Call Fun Times DJ today at 847-406-3535!

3 weddings on 1 Saturday in 3 Counties and 2 states.

Fun Times DJ was hired for 3 weddings on 10/5/13.  They took place at the Radisson in Kenosha, WI, the Arboretum Club in Buffalo Grove, IL and the Park Hyatt in Chicago, IL.  Each wedding was very different as the slogan of Fun Times DJ is "We make your wedding sound like YOUR wedding!"  We do this with our copywritten Wedding Questionnaire.  Give us a call at 847-406-3535 to set up a consultation.

Priorities and your wedding.

For the price of a wedding cake...

As a wedding guest you can avoid the cake, photography, video and Photobooth.  You cannot avoid the DJ though.  Yes, the DJ is that important.  Playing fun music that makes sense with what you like and what makes your guests dance is everything.  We can help with your wedding from Racine to Chicago.

One of the most requested wedding DJ's in Illinois

Thank you Dan Hanni for being apart of the Fun Times DJ team for 12 years! You are a guy that takes the wishes and happiness of our Brides and grooms to heart. You have a killer voice for announcements too! (No big surprise considering you are a ten year radio veteran)
Ask for Dan For your wedding and get ready to dance!

Hire a real DJ!

Hire a DJ that understands that you must play the hits and specific requests from the bride and groom. A wedding is not the time for a DJ to play the music that they want to play because the DJ likes it.
Hire a DJ that won't yell into a microphone and in turn yell at Grandma at your wedding.
Hire a REAL DJ that you can hear on the radio and has been properly trained the Fun Times DJ way.

Call now 847-406-3535. Visit us online at

Get out of the way!

With Fun Times DJ we know to get out if the pictures while offering professional sound at your ceremony.  In the lower right you will notice two (white and yellow) RCA cables.  Those are for the videographer's feed for a perfect wedding video.  Contact Fun Times DJ at 847-406-3535 to learn more about our ceremony and reception services.

Outdoor ceremony

An outdoor ceremony can be beautiful and a dream come true.  The risk of course is the weather.  Below is a picture of a ceremony that Fun Times DJ supplied audio for.  There was rain all week and earlier in the day but it stayed away during the moment that Josh and Amanda shared their vows.  It was a beautiful wedding!
Have a plan in place should the weather not cooperate and smile no matter what. Go into the day feeling that "It is about the marriage not the weather".
It is also a good idea to use Fun Times Dj for your ceremony and reception as we can be very flexible with moving equipment on your wedding day to make for a smooth and fun event.

We Make Your Wedding Sound Like Your Wedding...

As this couple were formerly announced Husband and Wife we played the song "Gone Gone Gone" by Phillip Phillips. It was a meaningful song to them and when we sat down to go over music it was the perfect choice. Call Fun Times DJ today to achieve your perfect wedding that matches you. 847-406-3535.

To Photobooth or not to Photobooth

I have recently had some brides say that they were not interested in a Photobooth because it takes attention away from them on their day. Another bride stated she wanted people to focus on dancing.
Photobooths can be fun and a creator of momentos at your reception. It might even help people loosen up a bit for the dancefloor or entertain those who are not big dancers.
Bottom line, if it fits your budget, you have thought it would be fun and my opinion, if you have over 200 guests...then go for it!

Looking back on your wedding, what is most important.

As you plan out your wedding budget put together a list of what is most important to you. If wedding flowers or a Photobooth that takes attention away from you ranks lower on your list, figure those items after you have hard numbers on what you value most.

Just another helpful hint from Fun Times DJ. Read our other blogs and visit these sites for more information and ideas.

Who do you trust?

Your instincts are probably correct. I recently had a bride contact me regarding her wedding reception after the DJ she found on Craig's List disappeared. though she was excited about the under market price of $500 they had agreed to she was in near tears as she called me worried about her wedding which was only as she stated 146 days away.
Whether it is price, attitude or shifty answer believe in yourself. Just like finding your soon to be new spouse, trust your instincts.

Put Fun Times DJ to your test! Call us at 847-406-3535 and schedule a consultation.
