In this blog post, we will delve into the hottest wedding DJ trends of 2023, highlighting the creative ways DJs are enhancing the atmosphere, incorporating technology, and tailoring their performances to meet the unique preferences of each couple.
Personalized Playlists and Music Curation:
In 2023, wedding DJs are taking customization to new heights by curating personalized playlists for couples. Instead of relying solely on generic wedding playlists, DJs are collaborating closely with the couple to create a unique soundtrack that reflects their personalities and musical preferences. By incorporating special songs that hold sentimental value, the DJ can elevate the emotional connection between the couple and their loved ones, ensuring that each moment is accompanied by the perfect melody.
How does this affect you? If you’ve had a Stylus party before, then you know that the rest of the DJ world is catching up to something we’ve been harping on for years – we want your wedding to sound like YOU – not just ‘some wedding.’
Interactive Song Requests and Technology Integration 
The era of paper song request slips is gradually fading away as DJs embrace technology to enhance your guests’ engagement. With the rise of mobile apps and web-based platforms, wedding DJs are utilizing interactive song request systems that allow guests to submit their favorite tracks in real-time. By embracing this type of technology, DJs can effortlessly gauge the crowd’s preferences and ensure that everyone’s musical tastes are accommodated throughout the celebration.
Stylus has a vareity of methods that we can use in these instances, although you may be the kind of couple who wants to lock down the request list a bit more (no group dances) or to make sure you have time to hear your favorite songs.
Live Music Collaborations 
In 2023, the fusion of live music and DJ performances is becoming increasingly popular. DJs are teaming up with live musicians, such as saxophonists, violinists, and percussionists, to add a touch of elegance and uniqueness to the wedding experience. The combination of live instruments with DJ mixes creates a dynamic atmosphere that resonates with guests of all ages, leaving them captivated by the harmonious blend of traditional and modern sounds.
Stylus can offer band/DJ combos. In the wedding we did this past weekend (May 28 2023) we not only played alongside Native American drummers & freestyled with a Jazz saxophonists, but we also featured a very special appearance by the former lead singer of the Platters – Mr. Al Zaid! You’ve also seen us play along with bands and been backed up by bands to throw the biggest party int he city!
Stylus offers a variety of instrumentation options whether your style is more focuesd on presenting style and class or if you’re interested in going IN on your party. A raleigh band/DJ combo is a great way to go.
We love helping couples create special moments that reflect them – and we’ve got a ton of ideas to help you accomplish exactly what you’re looking for.
