Making the difference for your special event with equality for all.
As seasoned, experienced and professional Wedding DJs in Tampa Bay, we recognize some of the differences that are unavoidable, but we also know that, at the end of the day, hiring a DJ for a LGBTQ or “Same-sex” wedding celebration is no different than a straight wedding in this regard: The trick to having a great DJ at your event is having someone who sees it as a special day and nothing out of the norm. It’s a wedding and that’s that. The vows may be a little different and you may have two Father/Daughter dances or a Mother/Daughter or Father/Son dance, or some other special highlight that doesn’t always show up in a typical Male-Female “Straight” Wedding. The music and Mc’ing should still be executed professionally just as they would for any event. It’s our job as the DJ to help you plan those announcements, to realize your vision for the perfect music for each portion of the event, and to execute the plan to perfection.
There are some unique decisions and concerns that same-sex couples may face during their planning, for example, some LGBT couples might be concerned that the family members or wedding party members use the correct pronoun when mentioning them in a toast. Those factors are common, but it’s the responsibility of the DJ/MC to make sure those issues are dealt with before the wedding day arrives, and that he or she understands your wishes and executes them. You want your DJ to understand these points and to incorporate them into the event just as he/she would any event… but not go overboard and feel manufactured or to make you feel uncomfortable by his/her overly enthusiastic approach to your wedding, as if it were something so out of the ordinary that the DJ needs to bring special attention to it. Our DJs simply don’t feel that way. We are here to make your moment with your best friend, your partner and your fiance the most special day that it can be. Long before same sex marriage was “Legal” in any state, we have been called upon to provide music and entertainment for the celebration of same-sex unions. The future is always moving. Lifestyles are changing, families are no longer the stereotypical “TV family”, and weddings will continue to evolve, even beyond what we know them as today. For our Wedding DJ services, little has changed, and we want our customers to know that we are completely open and accepting of our same-sex couples and clients. The DJ’s of SBS Events Florida don’t see people as categories, rather, we see two people sharing a night of love, family, food, drinks, and of course, dancing!! We wish all the best to every happy couple pledging endless love to their soulmates!!
