Making the Most of your Wedding DJ

Picking one wedding DJ for your special day can be quite a difficult task as there are a seemingly infinite number of DJs out there that perform weddings and vie for your attention. But how can you make sure that the wedding DJ you choose is perfect for you and your big day?

In order to help you make the most of your selection, here are some tips and questions that you need to ask before making a final decision on whom your wedding DJ will be.

While the tips you read are just opinion and a basic guideline, make sure that your final decision reflects your personality and the type of wedding theme that you would like to have.

One of the first questions that you will have to ask is whether you want a wedding DJ or a band. The major benefit of choosing a DJ is the fact that you can save a lot of money and choose from a much larger selection of songs. A good band can cost as much as $4,000 to play all night at a reception and may not be able to fulfill all of the requests that your guests are sure to have. On the other hand, a good wedding DJ can cost as little as a few hundred dollars and you can work with them to come up with a playlist that satisfies every single on of your guests that will be attending.

Just as you would not hire a band that you haven’t heard of or haven’t heard play, you should always go check out a DJ before choosing to book him or her. Watching them perform at an event or another wedding can give you a good idea as to how well they can keep the crowd entertained and the type of music and fun that they offer.

The way that a wedding DJ can work the crowd for a long period of time is quite pleasing compared to a wedding band. Bands music can get repetitive and they are so focused on playing that they have a hard time dealing with requests, talking, and dealing with your guests. If you have a wedding DJ then they can talk to your guests, make speeches, make announcements and focus on keeping your guests entertained as well as playing music.

Once you have decided that a DJ is the best decision for you, you should always ask friends and relatives for referrals or even talk to the people that work at your reception to see if they know of any good wedding DJs. This feedback can help you narrow down your choices and make a few selections as to which DJs you will want to interview.

That brings us to the interview. While people may give rave reviews for certain DJs, you want to make sure that you interview and ask them questions yourself in order to make sure they match your style, your budget, and your wedding theme. The last thing you need is a DJ that focuses on techno and dance music when you are having a Victorian style formal affair.

A little extra preparation can go a long way to ensuring your wedding goes off without a hitch and that your wedding DJ is the perfect match for you and your guests.
