Even weddings can be PC

Bride's Maids and Groom's Men

Bride's Men and Groom's Women?


You may or may not have heard the term “Man” of honor, but what about Grooms- women? In a recent wedding reception we DJ’d, the groom selected not one, but two of his female friends to be Grooms-women. This is an interesting mix for a bridal party!

At first, this modern day modification seemed to create a couples imbalance … but the bridal party worked it out beautifully by allowing their obvious friendship to out-weigh potential problems. The friendship displayed by the bridal party on both sides resonated through the entire event and made the evening magical, and intoxicating.


Do you want your wedding reception to be like this?


Our Wedding DJ & MC Equipment Checklist   


Look, this checklist isn’t always something we share publicly, but experience, trust, reliability is the name of our game. Which means you can trust and expect that every single wedding DJ with Mike Staff Productions uses high-quality, state of the art, professional DJ equipment and we want to put our money where our mouth is (although, really, when you think about that literally, it’s kind of gross)!


We want to provide you with the most authentic look into our world, so we’ve shared the equipment inventory that all Mike Staff Productions DJs should have in their arsenal.


professional wedding DJ equipment


Laptops / Tablets

Mixer: Professional DJ mixing board with at least 3 channels plus a mic input.

Speakers & Speaker Stands: At least 15 inch speakers are required. Cabinets should be neat and clean. Speakers must be on stands and set up right next to your DJ table.

Cordless Microphone:  Quality cordless mic is required. (Few things are more unprofessional than a wedding DJ on a microphone that you can’t understand.)

Headphones:  Used to cue up every song throughout the night.

Lights: Less is more, minimal lights are used to keep a romantic setting. You’ll never catch a Mike Staff Productions wedding DJ with a fog or bubble machine, either!

Cords/ Adaptors: Professional grade, balanced, cables. At least 250 feet of extension cords will be available

Duct Tape: We can’t work without it for safety measures and aesthetics. All cables must be taped neatly to the floor.

Back-Up Gear:  Every DJ will have backup gear to trouble shoot any type of equipment failure that may occur : Required to have following back-up equipment on site at every event:

  • Mixer
  • computer/Ipad
  • Microphone
  • Speakers / Cables
  • Power cords & Power strip
  • Batteries, lights


REALITY CHECK: Yes, it’s awesome that our DJs invest in their craft with professional grade equipment but emergencies happenWhat happens if the microphone cracks?  What happens if a speaker blows? What happens if a light goes out?


These are questions, you as the bride or couple, may not think to ask while meeting with a budget DJ. With Mike Staff Productions you don’t have to panic about ‘what if’s’ because we’ve asked ourselves all these questions and prepared ourselves for just about every scenario — bottom line — we believe in backup plans! Breath a sigh of relief….
