So you are getting married?
Now comes the exciting (but often confusing) time of hiring all your wedding professionals to make your day perfect. Time to hire a wedding DJ too. But let's be honest, this is probably the first time you have ever bought a wedding!
We are no experts on every aspect of every wedding supplier, but we CAN help you with what you should be looking for in a wedding DJ.
Maybe you have not only never had to plan a wedding before, perhaps you have also never been to a wedding before, so you might not know what makes any DJ different to any other.
There are a ton of options out there when it comes to finding a DJ from the really cheesy ones through to the ultra-professional ones and everything in between. But how do you tell the difference? Let us make it more easy for you to hire a wedding DJ for your day.
Do they have a professional looking website?
This is of course not the only thing, but is definitely a piece of the puzzle. If they can't bother to present themselves professionally online, why not? It doesn't have to cost a fortune and today it is simple to keep a great professional online presence. Some DJ businesses don't even have a website at all, this is probably sending the wrong message if they don't care enough about their business to even have a website.
What are their reviews like?
Do they have good testimonials from previous couples? Do some research and see what others have said about the service they received.
Do they have a support office?
Is the DJ a solo operator flying alone or part of a bigger team? Whilst there are a lot of solo operators out there, what happens if they get ill and are unable to fulfill their commitment to you? Would you prefer the knowledge you are working with a team with contingency plans instead?
It's not all about equipment
Yes, whilst it is important to have quality sounding equipment, that SHOULD be assumed when hiring a DJ (however, there are certainly some DJs using terrible sounding equipment). Look beyond just it being the fact that you are going to hire a wedding DJ and their equipment, think of it as hiring a professional with a personality that will be friendly and approachable. Our team are all happy to take requests and work with you and your guests to ensure a great night for all.
