6 Questions to Ask Before Hiring Your Wedding DJ
A wedding DJ is one of the most important vendors you will hire, a vendor that could make or break your reception. Make sure you ask the right questions before you commit.
Do You Provide A Written Contract?
Don’t proceed with hiring a DJ until you know whether or not a written contract is part of the deal. You should be able to outline requirements and prevent getting the short end of the stick.
How Long Have You Been Doing This, And How Many Weddings Have You Attended?
A DJ with little experience probably won’t be able to handle whatever your wedding guests throw thier way, and this can lead to disaster. Your DJ should know the typical wedding crowd and how things usually proceed. Very few things should throw your DJ off their groove.
Do You Perform At Several Events In The Course Of A Day?
The last thing you need on your big day is an exhausted DJ who can’t concentrate or provide the level of energy you need. This is what will happen when a DJ fills a day with as many events as possible in an attempt to generate more income. A professional will understand the value of quality over quantity.
Do You Have References?
A good wedding DJ should have a list of happy clients ready to sing their praises. If a DJ has nothing to hide, they should have no problem handing you this list. Contact at least a few clients to get a feel for how the DJ delivers on their promises and claims. Don’t be afraid to pick up the phone. You can find my references here.
How Do You Stay Current With Music?
Your wedding guest list is filled with people from all walks of life, and you need to make sure all of them will have music they can enjoy. Any DJ can dig up Frank Sinatra for the elderly guests at your reception. Only a reputable, reliable DJ makes it a goal to have the newest music available, too.
What Will You Wear?
The DJ should have a tuxedo available to wear if that is your wish. Inquire about the style and color to make sure it won’t clash with your wedding theme.
