  • We may be biased, as Peter or Merry Weddings is my (now) husband’s cousin, but he made our wedding AMAZING! From the ceremony music, to the grand entrance, to the reception, everything he did was above and beyond. Days before the wedding, Peter met me at the venue so we could practice my walk to the music to figure out cues. He worked with us for months leading up via FaceTime to make our wedding vision come true. We honestly could not be more happy with having had him as our DJ! We completely recommend Peter to anyone looking for a superb DJ who takes weddings and turns them into masterpieces.

    Thanks so much Mrs. Merry! Welcome to our Nuthouse! ;) I really enjoyed getting to know you during our planning process and I was thrilled to play part in yours and Tim's celebration!

  • Peter is the most incredible DJ/MC that I have ever seen or worked with. My husband and I booked him for our Kansas City wedding in June 2018... and, (from our amazing team of vendors), we would have to say that Peter was the best decision we made. Peter is the most dedicated MC. During the first meetings, he will work with you to understand details about your wedding and how to personalize the entire reception. From there, we worked with him on planning the entire night! Not a detail was left out and it was EXACTLY what we wanted and more!! Peter helped us to get our family and friends included in the evening, take a group photo with every guest piled on the dance floor, celebrate birthdays of a few guests, and took care of every worry we may have had about the evening running smoothly. If you are looking for a DJ/MC who is worth every penny, Peter is your guy. Our reception, was FUN, everyone danced the entire night, and people have been talking about the wedding nonstop. I can't thi... Read more

  • If you're looking for an amazing DJ who does WAY more than just be a "DJ" in the Kansas City, MO area, look no further than Peter Merry! From the very initial point of contact, Peter was very personable, caring, and warm. He's a clear communicator and he has excellent suggestions - something that is often more than welcome during the planning process when you're busy just trying to keep your head above water! He helped to coordinate BOTH our rehearsal dinner and the day of our wedding, collaborating effortlessly with me and my wife. He also adds his own special flare to the "traditional" wedding approach, and helps to ensure that your wedding day is truly FUN. I would recommend him to anyone in a heart beat.

  • The best decision of our wedding planning process was hiring Entertainment Director and Legend, Peter Merry with Merry Weddings! I am still on cloud 9 from our wedding in October and we have Peter to thank for that. I knew from my first conversation with Peter he was going to help me plan the wedding I wanted and imagined. I told Peter I wanted a fun, energetic and memorable wedding weekend. Man did he deliver just that! He is worth every single penny and much more! I saw Peter was based in Kansas City, but he travels for his clients. He traveled from Kansas City to Manhattan/Olsburg, KS for our wedding. The planning process with Peter is smooth, organized and most of all FUN! He has an organized timeline planned out to help with the ease of planning all your wedding needs. This timeline helped keep me on track and eased my stress - it was such a huge help. Your big day will be personalized down to every detail you request. Peter helped with the planning and entertainment for m... Read more

  • Peter and his wife did an amazing job with our wedding. If you want a DJ who actually wants to get to know you and your wedding party this is your guy. He isn't just a DJ but basically the wedding planner as well, from creating the itinerary to making sure everything runs smoothly. There was never a lull where people were just sitting around not knowing what was going on. You can have the perfect venue & perfect food, but if your DJ doesn't keep the party going and flowing smoothly that will be all the guest think about. You truly don't realize how important a DJ really is until you go to other weddings, and it is amazing how much of a difference it is. You can tell when a DJ just shows up and doesn't even know the groom and bride's names until he reads it off the piece of paper (usually gets it wrong I might add). And we are so grateful for his wife, she literally cleaned up paint off carpet. Made sure everything was in the right place, and even setup our ceremony as it had... Read more

  • The Nation's Best DJ has made his mark in Kansas City!! Peter Merry with Merry Weddings made our reception more entertaining than we could have wished ! And your guests will thank you for it. They have raved to me still to this day how much they enjoyed the DJ. Starting from the early meeting months in advance to get all of your thoughts and ideas in line. Peter offers a lot of different options and will personalize any thought that comes to your mind. He guides you through the entire process from every song for entrances, special requests and surprises in between, to the last dance. Every point has a purpose and it opens your eyes to what a good DJ is and can do. Peter made this aspect of wedding planning fun and stress free. I can't stress enough how a good DJ will really turn your reception into the party and atmosphere you want! Thank you Peter!

  • I never realized before that a Dj does more than just hit the play button on an iPod connected to some speakers. A DJ really can turn your reception from needing a lot of booze to get your guests on the dance floor, to everyone feeling recognized and wanting to get on the dance floor because they're having such a good time!!

  • Peter Merry of Merry Weddings was more than I ever could have asked for or expected. Whatever ideas I had about what a DJ should be at a wedding don't even come close to how wonderful Peter was! He made my wedding reception a piece of cake. Everything ran incredibly smoothly because of his leadership and guidance, keeping the timing of the wedding down to a tee. He was entertaining, played a great mixture of music, and kept everyone in a great mood! I would recommend Merry Weddings to everyone!!!!

  • Peter is amazing! Growing up , I attended a number of wedding Peter did and I knew when my day came I wouldn't have a wedding without him. He's a magic maker. He kicks the party off and keeps the party rolling. He is organized and on top of everything including things you wouldn't even think of. Thank you so much for all the memories on our special day!!!

  • Peter, Wow what can I say ! DJologist is the best word that describes this guy. He held our hand right from the start, ( almost when i met him out of luck at a starbucks getting ready for another wedding ) He went out of his way way the day after his wedding and came by my office and gave us a signed book Wow that was very nice of him to do.. Well all I can say look no further he is awesome, we just wish we had more time since it was a Sunday and we were very busy that night and trying to fit everything was tough... Thanks Again Peter... Loved our wedding and working with you... Thanks Deanne & Dean

  • Peter Merry is a man who needs no introduction….because he’s the one that gives it. We hired Peter for both my mom’s 60th birthday and for our wedding, and we could not have been happier. Peter knows how to have a great time, how to keep an evening moving along in the right direction, how to keep people interested and not feel like they are being pressured by a cheesy DJ. He is very professional, and knows what he needs to do and get’s it done.

  • One of the best DJs in the business! Peter is very professional and on top of things. The rehearsal dinner went so smooth because he knows what he is doing and was prepared when he got there. The wedding day went even better! Peter made the day go so smooth and he had people laughing out of their chairs from his wedding party introductions. He had everyone out on the dance floor afterwards too. Peter did an incredible job and made our wedding day that much more memorable. I have been to plenty of weddings where the DJ kind of just ruins the reception because he either doesn't know what to say, the music he plays sucks, or he pronounces the names wrong. Not okay. The experience you get from Peter surpasses any DJ at any wedding I have seen or been to. He is truly one of a kind. Thanks again Peter!

  • Hands down, Peter was one of the best parts of our wedding. One of the first things my husband and I said after we left the wedding was "I couldn't have imagined having anyone else as our DJ". Peter is extremely talented at what he does and goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding feel unique and personal. You cannot compare Peter to a "typical" DJ. If you do so, you will be very alarmed by his prices. They are well beyond that of anyone else we looked at. However, after going through the wedding, I would highly recommend budgeting to have Peter at your wedding. You won't be disappointed. Peter completely made our reception and our officiant (Don Johnson) totally made the ceremony.A large majority of guest told us it was by far the best wedding they've ever been to. I think a large portion of that had to do with the location, Don Johnson and Peter Merry. I went to a wedding a week after ours and it was interesting to compare DJs. Peter works with you to make everyone at ... Read more

  • Simply Amazing!!! As expected, Peter was everything we were looking for and more! Our wedding was a hit thanks in part to all the effort he put in! Most unique and unforgettable wedding! He may be high in price but he is worth every penny, I promise. If you are looking for laughter, fun and someone personal then you've found him.

  • If you are planning an event specifically a wedding - Peter Merry is absolutely fantastic. He is easy to work with and customizes your special day the way you envisioned it and makes suggestions that you can choose to use or not. My husband and I could not be happier with the level of service, commitment that Peter Merry brings. After our wedding reception, I thought to myself "Can we do this (reception) again? We had such blast celebrating with friends and family. I have even thought of calling Peter for our future anniversary to see if he's available to help us make our anniversary a special celebration for us. If you select Peter Merry, you won't be disappointed. Not to mention several of our guests said it was "the best wedding reception ever"...just like the title of his book. Planninga wedding can be a stressful time so take away the stress by hiring Peter-with his expertise you will be happy you selected him.
