Knowing When You Found Your Wedding DJ
When you start looking into hiring a DJ for your wedding, you don’t necessarily want to go for the cheapest offer, but rather who’s going to provide the better entertainment for you as well as your guests. For any person you book for your wedding, whether it’s the DJ or the photographer, you’re going to want to ask them questions to determine if you like the style of their work and if they’re the right fit for the ceremony and reception.
If you’re looking for a wedding DJ and can’t seem to find the right one and just looking around online isn’t working, that’s not surprising. When you do a Google search for Wedding DJ’s in your area, you’re going to get thousands of listings, some of which probably aren’t even experienced disk jockeys. So, here’s a list of tips when you start your hunt for the right DJ for your wedding.
4 Tips For Hiring A Wedding DJ
- Compiled A List Of Prospects. No matter who you see, whether it’s a friend who just got married, or another bride at the dress store, ask them what DJ they used or which one they’ll be using and the other one’s they considered hiring. If you don’t have a lot of friends or family members who used a DJ, then you can turn to the internet, but you want to make your search specific and make sure you use your location in the search. Those who come up within the first page of Google should be good candidates, but you want to also make sure they have an up to date and good looking website.
- Search The Review Boards. If a DJ is experienced, they should have plenty of reviews online, and those reviews will help you narrow down your search. If you read a review that says, “DJ played the Electric Slide when we asked him not to,” then you may want to cross that one off your list. I invite you to read NonStop Music Reviews
- Show The Wedding Planner The List You’ve Put Together. You already have so much planning to do when it comes to your wedding so, let your wedding planner help with narrowing down the DJ list. They’ll be able to contact your top choices and get more details on the equipment they use and how much space it’ll take up in the reception hall, if they have a specific type of music they prefer playing, and if they’re even available for the day of your wedding.
- Make An Appointment To Meet. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to meet with your DJ face to face. This will give you a better idea of whether or not they’re the right fit to entertain at your wedding. Also, the DJ will get a better feel for the type of music you want to have played, and they can even help you compile your own list of songs. While it’s important what the DJ has to say when answering your questions, meeting them will also help with your gut instinct on if they’re going to be your choice or not.
Remember, a good wedding DJ will be experienced and he’ll listen to your requests and ensure you that they won’t be forgotten. As long as you follow these four steps, you should be able to find that ideal DJ for your wedding, and don’t forget to get your wedding planner involved because they’ll be able to work out the little details you may have otherwise forgot.
