HOW TO FIND THE BEST WEDDING DJ
You want your wedding to be the talk of the town!…The best dress, the best food, the best DJ … So now let’s talk about the TOP 5 THINGS YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING DJ!
Number 1: PREPARATION!
This is your BIG DAY! Your DJ should seem interested and WANT TO hear all about what you envision and how you can work together to create your perfect scenario. He should give you a questionnaire to fill out so he knows your wish list from ceremony to cocktail hour first dances to dinner to the dance party! A great DJ spends 20-40 hours working on your wedding.
Number 2: EXPERIENCE!
DJs should have years of experience on how to make your special day even more special! More than just entertaining, they need to know how to read a room and set the tone for your entire event. Ask them how many weddings they have done and what they love about it. You want to hire someone who is passionate about sharing your special day with you!
Number 3: POSITIVITY!
The DJ is here for YOU! He should be excited to help you make your event successful and HAPPILY meet with you and work with you every step of the way to make sure you're completely satisfied! If you don’t get a good vibe or feel rushed through details, move on. Planning a wedding is fun, yet stressful, you want to surround yourself with positive people who lift you up and make you feel at ease, especially your DJ. He is YOUR VOICE on your wedding day, guiding the entire event. He should feel like part of the family.
Number 4: ABILITY TO READ A CROWD!
DJs need to know how to keep the party going! Ask to see pictures or videos of your DJ working a crowd. Read reviews from past brides or clients. You want to see it for yourself and not just take his word for it.
Number 5: QUALITY SOUND!
Being a DJ and Emcee is more than just hosting and pushing buttons, they create the soundtrack to your wedding! You want to make sure the equipment your DJ uses is new and state of the art. Don’t be afraid to ask the speaker brand and do a simple google search to ensure it’s a great sound system. Honestly, a good wedding DJ will show you examples of their product and you’ll have no doubt you’re working with a pro. Trust your instincts and ask away!
