World's Worst Wedding DJs

There are the "Lounge Lizards", the "Show Stealers" and the "Kings Of Cornball". The common link amongst these creatures is that they will make your wedding day memorable for all the wrong reasons!

Whether it's lame attempts at comedy, the "forced spontaneity" of Chicken Dances and conga lines or the dreaded "Announcer Guy Voice Syndrome" (AGVS), these "performers" lurk among the general DJ population waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting.

These insidious predators have not yet been eradicated and may cross your path in real life. If so, don't panic. Tell them you have other DJs to check out and will get back to them. Then screen your calls!

So that you can better recognize them, here are some of the World's Worst Wedding DJs we compiled from Youtube:

Marvin Gaye he aint. I am guessing the green sparkle party hats were handed out by the DJ as part of his "Party Props" package.

He's not JUST a DJ, he's a DANCER! Dude needs to button that vest.

Um... NO!

At least SOMEONE'S dancing! Love all the loose wires hanging down. They told him it was a black and white affair and he complied with a snappy black T-shirt w/ white pants combo.

Wonder how many times this mullet wearing DJ practiced this routine in his garage before launching it on the world.

This guy IS the party! I'd like to blame the bad audio on the camera mic but I can't help wondering if this guy has marbles in his mouth.

Part of the blame for the continued propagation of this dangerous species is people who are "trying to save a few bucks" continuing to hire them. Your wedding will only happen once. Get a good DJ.

I agree. DJs range from being near coma to cheezy. Make sure you interview and see a demo of your chosen DJ... before you contract! I co-own a wedding venue in Alabama and have seen them all! said...

The worrying thing about these 'awful' DJ's is that they give the more 'professional' guys a bad name or reputation.

Unfortunately, bad news tends to travel faster than good news and when somebodies big day is ruined your reputation can be tarnished before you have even met a client.

We have recently been given a booking for a wedding in a really posh location but because the bride to be had seen a couple of dodgy dj's before, her view had been tarnished.

Because of her lack of trust, the phone call we had was more like she was interviewing me for a crime I had committed! This in turn is now making me really nervous about taking on the job.

I might need to post a link to this on my blog. Brides sometimes don't even realize how low the bar can be set for wedding DJs. Like cable management, as you pointed out!
