Congrats! It’s time to start planning your big day. I bet you’re wondering; how do I pick a DJ for my wedding? Picking the best DJ is crucial to the success of your wedding day. Lucky for you, we’ve provided some tips that will help to ensure that you select the best DJ for your special day.
There are multiple factors that contribute to picking the best DJ for your wedding. First things first, you want to make sure that the DJ is available for your specified date. Wedding DJs book anywhere from 10-18 months in advance, so it is important to confirm that the DJ you are inquiring about isn’t already booked. With that being said, when you do make a decision, it is important to reach out as early as possible to reserve the DJ before someone else grabs your date.
Secondly, you want to make sure that the DJ assigned to you suits your wedding style. There’s nothing worse than a loud, flashy DJ blasting EDM at your rustic themed backyard wedding. We recommend an in-person meeting with your DJ well before your date to both meet the DJ, and to discuss/finalize event details.
Another question to ask your prospective DJ is whether they provide any backup due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event that your DJ is unable to attend your wedding due to illness, injury or some other personal emergency, you want to make sure that the DJ or company provides someone on standby. Likewise, it is beneficial to choose a DJ that has backup equipment in case of any technical issues.
Reviews are also very important when trying to determine how to pick the best DJ for your wedding. It is valuable to do some research on your DJ to see what previous couples have to say about them. In addition to reviews, make sure you’re protected with a signed contract.
Experience is another factor that contributes to picking the best wedding DJ. A wedding DJ with years of experience has an advantage over DJs who are just starting out. An experienced DJ knows how to read a crowd, what to play, when to play it, and what to follow it up with to keep the momentum going. In addition, a well experienced wedding DJ knows how to handle or avoid any unforeseen wedding disaster.
The last thing to consider is how much the DJ costs. Most couples make the mistake of asking the cost of the DJ before even deciding if that DJ might be perfect for them. DJs add value to your wedding through professionalism, expertise, and the ability to ensure that everyone at the wedding has a great time. We understand that everyone has a budget, but it is important to consider the peace of mind you will have, knowing that one of the most important days of your life is in expert hands.
Take these steps into consideration and you will be on the right path to selecting the best DJ for your wedding!
