DJ Your Own Wedding With Spotify

If you're wondering how to DJ your own wedding with Spotify, read on. Using Spotify, you can create the same vibe as a professional DJ.

Spotify has over 100 million songs, so you can find many suitable tunes for your wedding day. You can use those songs to create your wedding day playlist.

Basic Steps To DJ Your Own Wedding With Spotify

  1. Ensure you have a proper sound system so everyone can hear the music. If you don't have your own, you can rent a good sound system cheaply
  2. If you don't have a Spotify Premium, you should consider upgrading to a premium because the Spotify free version comes with many ads. You don't want ads interrupting your carefully selected music! 
  3. Download the playlist you created ahead of time. 
  4. Now, connect your device to the sound system.
  5. You should test the music system before the big day.

One good quality amplifier will be enough if the wedding guests will be in an area under 300 to 400 square feet. You likely can't provide a proper sound system if the event is organized throughout multiple areas.
