Could DJs Be the Next Wedding Planners? “Dream DJ Wedding Gig” Contest Inspires Creativity from an Unlikely Source

Los Angeles – DJs and weddings – they go together like, well, brides and grooms, or love and marriage. Most DJs have done a ton of weddings-and although DJs might not know the secret to matrimonial bliss, they do have some pretty good ideas about what goes into to making a really special, unforgettable nuptial ceremony.

DJs have done their share of work with brides and grooms, and now they have a chance to share their pearls of wedding wisdom with the world in the AMERICAN DJ DREAM WEDDING CONTEST.

Entering is simple: contest hopefuls just send in a video of no longer than 5 minutes in length, sharing the details of their dream wedding. What would the bride and groom be like? The guests? What food would they serve? Where would the wedding be set? What kind of music and dancing would be enjoyed?
