Choosing your wedding disc jockey is one of the most important decisions when planning your wedding reception. Unfortunately, many times the choice of a wedding disc jockey is given little thought and/or left to the last minute. Finding the best wedding DJ for your event may not be that easy. Much like choosing a wedding photographer, your disc jockey is a big part of your day and should match your style accordingly. Finding the right disc jockey is crucial to having a great wedding reception. Hire the right one and people will be raving about your wedding reception for years! Hire the wrong one and it could ruin your whole day. So, take time to research wedding DJs before choosing the best one to spin on your big day.
How do you find a wedding disc jockey that matches your style? How do you determine which disc jockey best suits your needs?
A reliable resource to find your wedding disc jockey is asking your friends and family. Talk to them to see who they would recommend based on their past experiences. Talk to recent newlyweds and see if they were happy with the DJ service they chose. Speak with your wedding reception venue to obtain a list of disc jockeys they would recommend. Attend bridal shows to meet DJs in your area. However, all of this will only get you so far. It’s still your decision in the long run to find that wedding disc jockey that best matches your style and will be the right choice for your wedding reception.
As you begin contacting different wedding disc jockeys and speaking with them over the phone, listen to how they talk and answer your questions. Are they relaxed, professional, and do they listen to your needs? Do they have good verbal communication skills? If the answer to all the above questions is yes, you are on the right track. The way the DJs conduct themselves now is a reflection of how they will conduct themselves at your wedding reception.
