Planning this once-in-a-lifetime celebration can be exciting but equally overwhelming. With so many choices in Wedding DJs, how do you figure out which one’s right for you?
You’ll find yourself faced with an endless array of choices for your DJ entertainment, from pricing to experience, deposit requirements to payment schedules, from set packages to a bespoke approach … right down to how much say you have in the music to be played.
Here are a few tips to give you a little guidance on what to look for in our particular are of expertise: DJ Wedding Entertainment.
- Finding the Right DJ Entertainment
With so many choices, how do you know who’s who and who’s worth your time?
- Your friends - Your friends’ experiences with their entertainment is probably one of the most reliable testimonials you can get. Maybe they had a phenomenal experience and are raving about who hosted and played for their Wedding. On the other hand, it’s also invaluable advice if they had an experience that was less than excellent.
- Instagram & Facebook - the great thing about this Social Network is that, depending on privacy settings, you’ve got access to your Friends and your Friends’ Friends! One post could potentially reach a lot of people you don’t even personally know, and they might have some great advice for you.
- Google is your best friend! - We understand the power of the Internet Search Engine, and we’re sure you do, too. Take the time to check each site, and see if they match what you are looking for? Look for vlogs (video blogs) that show the entertainer in their “natural habitat!” This is your opportunity to peek into one of our events ... without actually crashing the wedding! These will come through Google results, and likely take you to YouTube or a specific website’s link.
Choosing the music:
There are two extremes when it comes to choosing music for your reception, and neither is necessarily a good approach to programming the wedding. At one end, you personally need to plan every song, maybe even certain ones in a particular order! And at the opposite end, your DJ won’t allow any input from you.
We always ask for a Top 10 or so of “Must Play! I have to hear these songs at my wedding!” Those are the songs that make your reception, yours! Yes, I believe I bring plenty of experience to the table, but it’s important that I weave who you are into what I do! The event is yours, and it should reflect that.
We ask for a “Do Not Play these, because they’re nails on a chalkboard”-List. We don’t want to be murdered at the reception.
You should look for an exchange of ideas — and your choice in entertainment should also welcome that. By sharing your very special songs that trigger a memory, you’re giving us what we need so that we can use our experience to work them into what we do. And THAT’S how you get amazing moments that create unforgettable celebrations!
Hiring a professional wedding DJ allows for the ultimate goal: to have an amazing, stress-free wedding day! By taking the time to ask the right questions and connect with the right professionals, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the day!
