How to Choose Your Wedding DJ

After you’ve said your vows and walked down the aisle, it’s time to celebrate. The wedding reception should be a fun time for both you and your guests, and one way to do that is to have the right wedding DJ. A professional wedding DJ can keep the dance floor packed all night long, but how do you find the right one for your wedding? Read on to learn more:

Get some recommendations

There are plenty of wedding DJs out there, so how do you know which ones are good and which ones aren’t? The best way is to ask people who have actually hired them. Speak with friends or family members who have recently had a wedding to see what they thought of their DJs. You should especially ask people who share your tastes in music. Your wedding venue may also have a list of recommendations you can work from.

Consider your music taste

Many wedding DJs specialize in certain types of music. For example, one DJ may specialize in classic rock, while another works with hip hop. As such, finding a DJ that appeals to you and your partner’s music tastes is a must. Look through their website and any videos they may have online to see what kind of music you can expect from them.

Interview your DJs

Get a shortlist of wedding DJs (around two to three) and interview each one. This interview can be done on the phone, in person, or over Zoom. While this may take some time out of your schedule, it is a necessary step to choosing the right wedding DJ. This way, you’ll get a better sense of their style and professionalism.

When interviewing them, it’s good to have a list of questions ready. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you insured?
  • Which music styles do you specialize in?
  • How will you build our playlist?
  • How do you keep the dance floor full?
  • How do you handle requests?
  • Do you have samples of your work?
  • Do you plan to use lighting or special effects?
  • What will you wear?
  • Are you familiar with our venue?
