The DJ really sets the tone (haha pun intended) for your reception.
When your selecting a DJ, ask around for recommendations from people you know who have recently been married, read reviews, ask your other wedding vendors (your venue and your photographer are always happy to help with recommendations) and facebook/IG forums and tags! You may find a perfect fit through word of mouth!
The DJ is really in charge of keeping the night moving along your timeline. Be sure to talk about a grand entrance with your spouse and bridal party (and that all their names are pronounced correctly), the first dances, dinner (and music played during that time) and whether you're including a garter & bouquet toss and those songs too.
Once you have a few DJs youd like to meet with, here are a few questions you want to be sure to ask:
- What type of equipment & lighting do they bring.
- Are they familiar with the venue you chose and the acoustics?
- How much control do you have over the playlist? Ask about their music library.
- How many hours do they recommend and if they offer different packages.
- Do they offer a photo booth, uplighting or any other add-ons?
Most importantly, you'll want a DJ you feel comfortable with. This vendor is so important to your wedding from helping you plan, keeping the timeline smooth and coordinating with the other vendors.
Here are a few that I have worked with and they are fun, professional and very knowledgable!
