A wedding is perhaps the single most stressful event that a couple can share. Having served as a wedding DJ for many years, I've seen things from the outside looking in that made me cringe on numerous occasions.

I started DJing weddings in the mid-nineties as a way to make some extra cash. The last one I did was in 2008 or so, and it was a horror show. Not only did the bride's separated birth parents get into a drunken argument, but the wedding took place in a barn with shoddy electrical, so the power cut off and on throughout the celebration. It was also the last time I attended a wedding.

I probably acted as a DJ or master of ceremonies for a wedding a dozen times between 1995 and 2008. After getting my first radio job in 1996, I had to find a way to make extra money because my salary was less than sufficient. I bought a sound mixer, microphone, and speakers, and started doing weddings and office parties. The first event I did was at the age of 19, and it was my mother's company Christmas party near Lake Tahoe.

The first time DJing an event is terrifying. It's even more stressful when it's a wedding, because ruining a couple's most important day is always a possibility. I've seen wardrobe malfunctions, a groom never show up, drunken blowouts, and lost rings. I even witnessed the sprinklers come on during a ceremony at a golf course where the first three rows of attendees got soaked and had to leave the site.

You just feel horrible as the entertainment when these things happen. Problems arise all the time at weddings, which is why there are so many wedding fail videos on YouTube.
