Four Things to Know About Hiring a Wedding DJ

When you are hiring a wedding DJ, you want to be sure that you hire someone who is going to provide you with the services that you are looking for at a decent price. A wedding DJ is the center of the entertainment for your guests at the wedding, so it’s important that it’s something you take seriously. Here are four things you should know about hiring a wedding DJ.

  1. Make Sure They’re Upbeat: It’s not enough to assume that the DJ is going to be upbeat on the day of your wedding. They should be upbeat, excited, and enthusiastic from the moment that you meet them. This way you know for sure that they are going to have the best qualities of a DJ on the day of your wedding. However, a special consideration should be made based on what you are looking for. You want an upbeat DJ, but you might not one who holds the spotlight, but instead will keep a casual distance. This way, they do not overtake your wedding. So consider whether or not they interrupt you while you are talking or don’t take your requests seriously, which are signs that they might not provide you with what you are looking for. 
  2. Ask the Right Questions: When you are meeting a prospective DJ, you need to ask the right questions, such as what their overtime fees will be. If the wedding reception goes on longer than expected, you are going to have to pay these costs if you expect the DJ to stay. You also need to be sure that they can play all the music that you are looking for. 
  3. Request a Video Demonstration: Before you hire a DJ, be sure to ask for a video demonstration. Some DJs will have one up on your website. This is going to give you an idea of how their service will play out at your own wedding. 
  4. Read Over the Contract: Before you sign a contract when you choose a DJ you want to hire, you need to be sure that you thoroughly read over the contract. The contract should include the right time, date, location, and price. Be sure to look over what the additional charges are to ensure that you know how to avoid them and to ensure that you are willing to spend this amount if needed. 

When you know these four things, you can be sure that you choose a DJ that is perfect for your wedding day. Talk to a service like Any Event Productions for more tips.
