10 Questions to ask before you hire a wedding DJ!

1. How many much experience as a wedding DJ do you have?

Experience is key when it comes to selecting a DJ that can handle the unique demands of a wedding. Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. An experienced wedding DJ will help to ensure everything runs smoothly.

2. Can you provide testimonials/reviews from past clients?

What previous clients have to say about their services will give you an idea of the DJ's professionalism, reliability, and ability to keep the dance floor packed.

3. What genres of music do they specialize in?

Ensure that the DJ can cater to your musical preferences and create a playlist that suits the tastes of you and your guests

4. Do you have back-up equipment in case of a technical issue?

Technical glitches can happen, so it is important to know the DJ has a back-up plan to keep the music flowing smoothly.

5. How do you handle song requests?

A good DJ should be able to strike a balance between honoring guest requests and sticking to the couple's preferences.

6. Will you act as the MC for the evening?

Some DJ's offer MC (Master of Ceremonies) services which can be a valuable addition to keep the flow of the reception seamless. Keeping your guests informed and engaged throughout the evening is crucial.

7. Do you have liability insurance?

Make sure you hire a professional wedding DJ. If they are not insured, they are not professionals!

8. Are you familiar with our wedding venue?

It is always beneficial if the DJ has previous experience at your wedding venue. While this should not be a deal breaker it is a plus.

9. What is your pricing and what is included in your packages?

Not all packages are created equal. Find out what is included in the package they are proposing. When comparing proposals make sure to compare the services being offered and not just the price.

10. How far in advance do I need to book your services?

The best wedding DJ's book out far in advance. When planning your wedding give yourself enough time to get the best!
