Hiring A Wedding DJ

Hey girl hey! Major congrats on your engagement. If you’re “that girl” that dreams of dancing the night away with your soon to be hubby + other loved ones then you’re reading the right blog. Grab a latte or your favorite bottle of wine and take notes on hiring a wedding DJ….

When hiring a wedding DJ there’s a lot you should be on the look out for, such as can they keep more than 60% of your guests on the dance floor at the same time? Are they outgoing but professional? Do they plan on taking breaks, if so how many? Are they flexible? Hiring a wedding DJ can be a little nerve wrecking, so ask for referrals from other friends or colleagues who recently tied the knot, please make sure your sense of style is similar to their’s.

Before Hiring A Wedding DJ

  1. Read their reviews + visit their social media pages.
  2. Confirm that they will be available to schedule a final meeting with you to discuss the details and logistics, this can certainly be done via telephone. 
  3. Confirm that they will accept your song selections for the key moments, {i.e. processional song, recessional song, reception entrance, first dance, cake cutting bouquet/garter toss, and the parent dances.}  Please don’t stifle their artistic freedom with a minute by minute play lists that runs on into ten pages… Please don’t do it , or just get an iPod and a portable speaker. An amazing DJ only needs genres + a few songs that you must hear or never want to hear.
  4. Please don’t haggle with them on their rate, because they are a vital organ in your wedding, kind of like the pulse, heart and eye balls. We find that haggling discourages the professional and then they may give you watered down service, you know half-ass service.
  5. Find out what they are going to wear to your wedding & feel free to suggest what you would like them to wear, but don’t go crazy and ask them to wear a Gucci suit {lol.}
  6. Check out pictures of their equipment and set-up from other weddings.
  7. What’s included in the rate {i.e. microphones, up lighting, photo booth….}
  8. Do they have insurance, most venues requires your vendors to have liability insurance of $1million
