Congratulations! You’re getting married! It’s a time of bliss and endless dreams that you never want to forget.
But, it’s also a time for planning. There are so many things to prepare for including finding the perfect wedding DJ.
You may not realize how important the DJ for your wedding is, but the truth is this individual can make or break your big event. So, let’s take a look at everything you need to know to hire one so you can be guaranteed to have the wedding of your dreams.
How to Hire a Wedding DJ
There is more to a good DJ than the one that costs the most, or least. They must have good character and above all know the difference between good and bad music. Here are some tips to get you moving in the right direction when it comes time to choose.
Determine What You Want Up Front
Before you can start asking questions, you need to know what you’re looking for. Many DJs perform weddings as a primary part of their business. But, you must also consider a DJ that focuses on other types of events so that you can get someone that knows how to mix things up. Unless, of course, you’re looking for pure professionalism.
Ask For Samples
This is when it becomes important to ask for samples of your potential DJ’s work performance. You can review videos or mixtapes and obtaining a list of their current playlists is always a good idea, too.
Make Sure Your DJ Has The Correct Playlists
Speaking of playlists, you should be prepared to provide your DJ with the playlists you’re hoping to have on your wedding day. But, above all, you must provide them with a list of songs and even genres of songs that you don’t want. This will ensure they are the best prepared to make your event memorable and exciting.
Booking a DJ for a Wedding Boils Down to How They Handle the Crowd
When preparing to book a DJ, ask them how they handle different crowds. This can also be determined by the video sample. Depending on the type of wedding you’re having and the people you’re inviting, your potential DJ should be able to keep them all on the dance floor all night long.
Ask For a Contract
The most important factor to consider when choosing your DJ is the wedding DJ cost. After all, you’re already spending thousands of dollars on this event and you want fair prices. Signing a contract upfront will help you maintain your budget and also guarantee that your DJ will be available when you need them.
When you start searching for a wedding DJ, don’t just enter ‘wedding DJ near me’ in Google and hope for the best. Do your homework and take your time interviewing various DJs to ensure that you’re getting the best of the best. This is your special day and the DJ is one of the most important details.
