Choosing Your Wedding DJ

Wedding DJ

The entertainment at your wedding venue will determine the kind of celebration you hold. Many couples choose to forego the live band and choose a wedding DJ to create a continuous and amplified vibe that cross-fades between songs and mixes multiple genres according to a desired playlist. The importance of choosing the right wedding DJ will be realized during the celebration of your magical day.

What You Need to Know About Your Wedding DJ

Every wedding DJ will have a different style. Know that style and make sure the vibe matches yours. Imagine the type of celebration you want to hold, and seek the wedding DJ that can create it. This goes beyond the music. A wedding DJ can offer special entertainment to interact with your guests, special light effects, an interactive photo booth experience and other special effects to increase the dynamic of the experience. Your wedding venue should be able to connect you with a wedding DJ that suits your ideals of the perfect wedding celebration.

How to Learn About Your Wedding DJ

Get to know your wedding DJ by reviewing samples of their work. Request live videos, social media profiles, and visit their website. If they are featured as a vendor at your wedding venue, review the content about your potential wedding DJ on the venue's website. Read reviews. Interview your vendors. Contact the wedding DJ and ask questions. Discuss your vision for your wedding day and ask them to explain how they will meet that vision.

The Playlist for Your Wedding

Your wedding DJ will probably ask you for a playlist or at least a list of your favorite songs to play similar music. If you have certain songs that you absolutely want played during your ceremony and reception at specific times according to your timeline, provide this information to your wedding DJ. Make sure they are willing and able to follow your timeline and playlist. If there are certain songs that you do not want to hear on your wedding day, such as a breakup song from your past relationship or the song you shared with your ex, make sure to share this information to avoid an unwanted experience.
