6 Things to Know Before Choosing a Professional DJ for your Wedding Ceremony
Your wedding DJ is most important when it comes to the cruise and chiefly feel of your big day. That’s why it’s important to make sure you do your research and choose wisely. After all, they’re not there just to play music alone.
A wedding DJ helps ensure the events of your big day flow well. He introduces the couple, the wedding party, and interacts with your guests, making sure your event is thoroughly exciting from start to finish.
The truth is, the DJs vital role is to keep the guests amped up for your wedding. They are the ones who will encourage pure fun, which is great and a necessity for the ceremony, of course. Below are some tips to keep in mind before hiring a professional DJ for your wedding.
· Are They Available for Your Wedding Date?
You need to be fully aware that they will be available for the amount of time that you require of them on your wedding day. This is to avoid ending up with a DJ that will disappoint you on your wedding day. If you get a DJ you like, sign a contract first because most professional DJs are booked in advance.
· Schedule Face To Face Interviews
This is very vital as it ensures you really “click” with your DJ and you are both on the same page in terms of style and approach. Don’t miss this step.
· Ask The Right Questions
Even though there are many questions you’ll ask the wedding DJ you’re hiring, make sure you don’t miss the most important ones.
Consider “what if” scenarios like, “what if the DJ gets sick? Do they have backup equipment in case something fails?
If the DJ is a professional, they will give you options of such cases before your big day. Make sure there is a backup plan in case something goes awry on the night before and if they are prepared for a professional to replace them in the case of an unfortunate event.
· Give Them The Information They Need
A professional DJ will need your wedding timeline and playlist. These will help them know your likes and dislikes, and they’ll know how to further map out the playlist and make changes where necessary.
In a case when a DJ doesn’t offer any sort of guidance, the couples need to be as detailed as possible when giving out their choice of songs and other information.
· Profile on Social Media
Most professional DJs have a profile on social media. Make time to visit their social profiles to view photos and live videos of the parties they have performed at or covered. This ensures you have an idea or get a sense of what they can bring to your wedding.
Professional DJs often request a deposit to attain a secure date on their calendars. Also, they will ask for the balance paid before the wedding. Collecting payments at your wedding reception is not the best way for established professionals, so be mindful of that
A professional DJ has the experience, equipment, and can guarantee an amazing time at your wedding. Plus, you need not stress yourself on any unexpected surprises.
