Start with Recommendations

What’s Your Wedding Mood?

Are you looking to have a fun, light-hearted feel? A sultry, romantic vibe? Or an energetic, upbeat ambiance? The DJ often sets the tone for any wedding celebration, so make sure you let them know exactly what you want your special day to feel like. Have potential DJs give you sample playlists to see if they understand precisely what you want.

Interview as Many as it Takes

Weed through your potential DJ candidates with these often overlooked questions:

  • What is their full fee or end cost?

  • What do they charge for overtime?

  • Will they expect to be fed?

  • What artists/music genres are in their music library?

  • Will they be able to play your specific song requests?

  • Do they have any wedding video demos to show?

  • Do they have any previous customers you could contact?

First (and Last) Impressions

Do you get along with your potential DJ and seem to both be on the same page? Make sure they are 100% willing to listen to what you want for your wedding reception. In the end, you should feel good about your DJ selection and confident that they will be able to provide you with the type of music you desire.
