Finding Your Perfect DJ

There are many different types of DJ companies out there. Here are a few tips to help make your decision a little easier.   First and foremost...Friends don't let friends DJ their wedding… Instead, you should have your friend attend the wedding as a guest or even in the bridal party. Just because they are your friend does not mean that you have to let them DJ your wedding. They may give you a killer deal on the DJ package, but are they really professional DJ material? I am sure there are many people who know pro wedding DJs out there that would be the perfect match for your wedding. However, I have heard the stories many times where brides wished they would have spent $300.00 for a professional. A professional wedding DJ company will go over all the details with you ahead of time, so that there are no surprises.

Type of DJ’s/Personality(s) Some DJ companies are a one man show, while others offer a list of DJ’s to choose from. If you know which DJ you want, be sure to request him up front. If not, be sure to describe exactly how you want your day to go and what you envision and see if they have any suggestions on which personality type would most suit  you. Once you choose your DJ, be sure to meet/talk with him to get to know him and get a feel for how he/she presents themselves during the conversation. Are they energetic? Are they passionate? When you hire a wedding DJ you are also hiring the master of ceremonies. They will be your spokesperson for the evening representing both of your families. It is a wise idea to go with a company that has good chemistry with you and your fiancé. Also, be sure to ask for references from past brides or you can even check with other vendors that you have hired to see if they have ever worked with your DJ in the past and get their opinion. See Your DJ in Action Honestly, most wedding DJ companies that you might consider hiring will not allow you to attend a private function such as a wedding reception, which when you think about it makes perfect sense! These days, a lot of DJ’s have a video demo to hand out or they might even have one on their website. This way you can see event highlights of your DJ in action, and get a feel for what you can expect on your big day. Talk with Several Companies So you talked with one wedding DJ company now guess what? Talk with another and another. The best piece of advice is to consult with several wedding DJs before making a decision on which one to hire. This will also give you a better understanding of what you are looking for immediately! You will be surprised at the way some entertainers carry themselves. Just imagine how they will handle your ONE wedding! Keep notes of all conversations and prices quoted for your wedding. Narrow your selection down to 2 or 3 ideal companies and make your decision from there.

What about the contract and payments After you have your sights on a particular wedding DJ, enforce what you want with a contract. All the stipulations should be discussed before hand and all the important details should be included (location, date, time, # of guests, names, and phone number). When going over the contract, also talk about how payments are made. Just like almost every other vendor, wedding DJ companies will usually require a deposit at the time the contract is signed to reserve your date.

Hiring the Right Wedding DJ Every bride and groom is different and this means that they are looking for different qualities in a wedding DJ. The best approach to take when interviewing wedding DJs is to get a vibe of how they view you as a person and a client. Wedding receptions should not be done in a cookie cutter fashion. When weddings are personalized to what the bride and groom want, then this means that they hired the best wedding DJ available.
