Getting A Shy Crowd Going

The most common goal for hosting an event is to make sure guests are having a great time. An event’s success is often measured how lively the guests are throughout. Dancing is one of the universal signs of a guest’s enjoyment, especially at weddings. You should aim to gets your guests up and jumping as much as they can at your event. It can be tricky to get a shy crowd going though. Many individuals don’t realize just how many minor details can kill a party’s vibe. An empty dance floor is a huge party killer and a quick way to bring down an event. Below are a few tips and tricks to show your guests a great time.

Let the Professionals Work

Before you hire a DJ, you may have an idea of what kind of music you’ll have played during your event. In any case, remember that DJs have to experience on what gets the crowd going. While it’s okay to make a few requests, consider giving your DJ as much freedom as you can. If you have a playlist in mind, you need to consider whose experience matters more. Your own, or the guests? A wedding is a celebration for you and your guests. If you have strong feelings about what music is right for your event, step away and consider the bigger picture. That way everyone enjoys their time at your event!

The Size of Your Guest List Matters

The reality of how much activity you expect to see depends on the size of your guest list. If you’re hosting a small wedding, for example, you might not see as much activity on the dance floor. A large wedding that has 200+ guests in attendance will have a much easier time keeping up the energy. Although a small wedding does not necessarily have to be doomed to be a dull affair. In fact, the smaller wedding sizes can oftentimes offer a far intimate experience.

How to Deal with Song Requests

Guests will always have the urge to make song requests. The problem is that everyone has their own likes and dislikes and a song that a guest might enjoy, other might not find so exciting. So, the question remains. Should you deny requests? You don’t have to dictate to host a successful event. The best way to respond to song requests is too acknowledge them ahead of time. One tactic is to create your own wedding website where guests will have the option ahead of time. This is a good way to access your guest’s needs and have a limited number of sound requests approved in a fair and concise manner, that way the flow of the event is uninterrupted and allows for flexibility when it comes to song choice.

Be Present

One of the most complicated aspects of getting a party going comes from breaking the ice. No matter how large or small your event is people have the natural tendency to avoid being the first to dance. If you are hosting an event, take the time to mingle with the crowd and just be present, so your guests are more comfortable socializing amongst themselves. Get out there and when the time comes to start the dancing yourself! The span of your event is not the time to be shy, especially if that event happens to be your wedding. If you have doubts about being more open, just keep in mind that everyone is there for you and took time out their schedule for you!
