Finding the perfect wedding DJ for your special day is definitely one of the important decisions that the couple will make and…definitely it is not an easy task! Not to worry my lovely brides-to-be! We have asked Showtime DJs to share with us a few questions you must ask before hiring your wedding DJ!
How do you choose the songs (style & flow) of the wedding music? How do you customize the song list for each couple?
“This is a very important question: how flexible will your wedding dj be? Can he be accommodating to your music tastes? Is he capable of reading the crowd and combining your favorite songs with their style? Can he create the wedding celebration that you are looking for? Don’t forget to ask how much you will be able to participate in the song suggestions”.
Could you provide us with references and with some samples of your mixes?
“An experienced and professional wedding DJ will be able to provide you with numerous positive reviews and samples of his work that will confirm the quality of the services that are being offered. In addition you can try to check out reviews that have been made online. Also videos of couples sharing their positive feedback is also an excellent way to evaluate the quality. If the wedding DJ does not want to share such information … that is not a good sign.”
Who will be playing the music at our wedding? Will we have the opportunity to meet before we sign the contract?
It is extremely important and goes without saying that you must meet in person with the DJ that will be playing music on your wedding day”.
What happens in the event that you can’t make it to the wedding or if the equipment does not work on the day of the wedding?
«This is a crucial question that you must pay attention to! Misfortunes and unforeseen events are part of life, however a true professional will be proactive and have a backup plan ready.»
What additional services can you offer beside the music coverage of our wedding?
“Nowadays DJ packages can include additional services that make a wedding reception extremely special. Ask your DJ what else can he offer to make your wedding reception unique! Try to prefer professionals DJs that own the equipment for all additional enhancements”.
Can you tell us about your pricing?
«Asking about prices is crucial, however we have left it as our last question since you first need to be informed about the services that are included in that cost. At the end of the interview, you can follow up with questions about the pricing and what services are included in that quote»
