When asked about what to consider when hiring a DJ for your wedding, here's the advice I offer...
1. Ask to meet your DJ. Some companies will book clients who won’t meet the DJ until the day of their wedding. The DJ they send might be fine, but a wedding is a very personal event! I pick up a lot of information just chatting and corresponding with clients along the way.
2. Ask family and friends about their own experiences hiring a DJ. Although I use social media and various wedding vendor sites to get leads, word of mouth is still my most powerful form of marketing. Online reviews are also key.
3. When it comes to the budget, consider how important music is to your event. Booking a DJ doesn’t need to break the bank, but this is an area where couples sometimes try to save money by getting a friend to do it or by hiring a company advertising cheap DJ services. Price is usually linked to experience, and a DJ who puts a real value on their own time and services will take pride in making your wedding the best it can be!
