Why Hire a Professional MC instead of Just a DJ?
No other service in Kansas City creates a more exciting and personalized experience on your wedding day. Here's why: Great music is a must. But instead of focusing only on music, an MC will create a total package that will make your reception flow seamlessly, keep your guests engaged, and be unforgettable from beginning to end.
And few other MCs in Kansas City have the level of experience that Michael Lauren Weddings provides in making your reception absolutely amazing.
Let's get Started!
A seamless and entertaining reception with zero awkward moments. It takes more than just music. I can help you plan the perfect reception, MC your event with class, and provide an engaging soundtrack from beginning to end.
Can you imagine celebrating like you were a guest at your own reception? No stress. Just fun. And lots of it! This isn't achieved by a traditional DJ service. That's what you hire for a cookie-cutter wedding reception. But your wedding doesn't have to be stereotypical. It can be fun, exciting, romantic, and unforgettable. Guaranteed.
What's the difference? Far more planning goes into an unforgettable wedding day than many people realize. As Kansas City's only DJ/MC that is also a certified wedding planner, I put my background to good use to offer a customized experience that far surpasses what an average DJ service offers. I'll walk you through every aspect of your big event from start to finish and help you create the perfect night. Everything will be personalized and flow seamlessly. But most of all, you and your guests will have an unbelievable amount of fun. The kind of fun that comes once in a lifetime. (READ REVIEWS on The Knot) (READ REVIEWS on WeddingWire)

Surveys repeatedly show the number one factor to the success of your celebration is the entertainment. Yet couples generally place a higher priority on items like flowers, or party favors. Why? Because often times it's only AFTER their wedding that couples realize that even with the prettiest flowers or decorations, it was the entertainment that had the biggest impact on making their day special.
It's not about spending more. It's about prioritizing your existing budget, and getting more! Since my services combine in-depth reception planning, as well as award-winning DJ and MC services, you can get a seamless and stress-free event. But more than that, you'll get an unforgettably fun and exciting event!

More than Music
This is so hugely different from a traditional DJ service that it actually falls into a different category of Entertainment and Event Director. The results are dramatically different, and the level of service much higher. The value is unmatched, and definitely should not be compared to a service only providing you with music on your wedding day. True, in-depth planning before your event, along with complete direction during your event, are combined with award-winning MC and DJ services to create an unforgettable event.

My name is Michael. I'm a DJ and MC from Kansas City. My passion? I specialize in helping couples have the best wedding day possible. Award winning, 5 star, unforgettable receptions. This isn't an ordinary DJ service. I specialize only in weddings, focusing on each component of your day. (Not like that DJ that "specializes" in weddings, graduation parties, bar mitzvahs, house parties, and bars. But a true specialist in one-of-a-kind wedding celebrations.)
Every detail is carefully crafted. I'll probably get just as excited as you planning your reception, but I promise not to steal the show. I will keep things flowing, exciting, and customized to your tastes, because this is my profession, not a hobby, so you get my undivided attention and experience. Why? I think your wedding should be treated as a one-of-a-kind celebration, not just another "gig".
Music is great! But who will direct your event, and keep things flowing? As a professional spokesperson, I've been hired by hundreds of couples to help engage their guests and help them create an unforgettable celebration.
Having a true Master of Ceremony is the secret to success on your big day, and will provide the best experience for you and your guests. An experienced MC will take control of your event and allow you to feel like your a guest at your own reception. You will have an event that people will remember for years to come.

This is where it all begins. I can help it to be seamless and stress-free.

Q: There are so many DJs! How do I know what to look for?
A: Excellent question. You've said "Yes!", and now you are suddenly expected to be a professional coordinator. What?! And with so many options, packages, and prices to choose from with wedding DJs in Kansas City, where do you begin? I invite you to check out my blog post regarding reviews to help you fine tune your search. Hint: Look for a DJ specializing in weddings that can help you eliminate the stress of planning your wedding, not just provide music services.
Q: Why shouldn't I just go with a traditional DJ service?
A: You don't just pick out the first dress you see. It has to be "the one". When you see it, you know it. It's as if it were made for you, and you feel amazing wearing it. Much like the perfect dress, a Designer Wedding Reception from Michael Lauren Weddings means that your reception is tailored specifically to you and your friends and family. This doesn't happen by chance. Through a creative process that involves advanced face-to-face planning to customize your experience, you'll have your personal stamp on a reception that is fun, unique, elegant, romantic, and engaging. The stress is removed and you can fully enjoy your celebration, free of the awkwardness and stereotypes of the common wedding reception. In addition, we carry a wide variety of lighting options for events of all sizes.
