Tips on Picking the Right DJ

When considering the right DJ, first check on two things:

  1. Ratings and comments from Brides and Grooms
  2. Availability for your Wedding date and location

Once you connect with a Wedding DJ company, consider asking the following questions:

  1. What is the total price for my Wedding?McGaughnea_proof-945[1]Include the planned hours and any potential to go longer as well as travel fee or any other fees. Make sure you know what’s included in the price and what other services they offer like ceremony music, Wedding slide show, photo booth, photography, videography and special lighting.
  2. Who will be the actual DJ for my Wedding? Do we get to work directly with him/her during the planning process?
    We recommend you speak with or video conference with your actual Wedding DJ prior to booking your Wedding. Then, plan to work directly with your DJ planning your Wedding. Of course, we commend using to enter all of your Wedding details online!
  3. How much experience does my DJ have with Weddings?
    An experienced Wedding DJ would have performed at 30 Weddings or more. You run a risk with using a DJ with less experience, however you may be able to negotiate a more competitive price.
  4. Tell me about your music library.
    Most Wedding DJs have digital music or CDs, so the quality of the music shouldn’t be an issue for the modern DJ. Consider providing a list of important songs to affirm they will be able to provide the music you want.
  5. Can you send me a picture of your Wedding DJ setup?
    This will also help assure you to make sure their setup is professional and matches your expectations in advance.
  6. What to do if there’s a DJ emergency on my Wedding Day?
    Every DJ should have a backup plan in case of emergencies, even if it’s contracting with another DJ company to provide backup.
  7. Can I get a copy of your Booking Contract and do you have liability insurance?
    This ensures the professionalism of your Wedding DJ. A legal contract is important to protect your investment and make clear the Wedding DJ’s responsibility and commitment to your Wedding Day.

We recommend you compare up to three Wedding DJs. You can also request a recommended list of DJs from your venue or Wedding coordinator. However, be cautious! In some cases, DJs offer paybacks for adding them to their lists – so thoroughly check each DJ’s qualifications.

Finally, choose your Wedding DJ with confidence and excitement and make sure you satisfy all the requirements for ensuring your amazing Wedding day!
