Updated: Dec 20, 2022

Wedding DJs play a crucial role in creating the perfect atmosphere for your special day. Whether you’re looking for a classic, traditional wedding or a more modern, upbeat celebration, a skilled DJ can help you create the perfect playlist to set the mood and keep your guests entertained. Here our 5 tips to help you navigate the selection process.

1. Style Matters

One of the first things to consider when hiring a DJ is their style and personality. Do you want someone who is more low-key and unobtrusive, or do you prefer a deejay who is more interactive and energetic? Consider what kind of music you want played at your wedding, and look for a deejay who specializes in that genre. If you’re not sure what kind of music you want, a versatile deejay who can play a variety of styles may be the best choice.

2. Good Equipment For a Good Experience

It’s also important to consider the deejay’s equipment and setup. Sometimes your venue will supply the AV for your event, but this isn't always the case. If you are required to provide your own equipment, make sure your DJ can provide the high-quality sound equipment you need. Just in case there are a few hiccups have a backup plan in case of any technical issues. It’s also a good idea to ask about their lighting setup, as this can help create the perfect ambiance for your reception.

3. Communication is Key

Another important factor to consider is the DJ's communication and planning skills. If you are dealing with a complete solutions agency like our own, this will be handled by one of our representatives. If you are working with a freelance DJ, however, you’ll want to make sure they are responsive and easy to work with, and that they are willing to take your preferences and requests into consideration.

4. Plan Ahead

A good DJ will work with you to create a timeline and playlist that fits your vision for the wedding, and they should be able to smoothly transition between different parts of the reception, such as the first dance, cake cutting, and bouquet toss. If you are working in wedding planner, put them in contact with the DJ before your wedding day so that they can plan ahead and align their scheduling.

5. Testimonials

Lastly, if you are working with a freelance DJ, don’t forget to ask for references and read reviews from previous clients. This will give you an idea of what to expect and help you make an informed decision.

Remember, hiring the right wedding DJ can make a big difference in the overall success of your wedding. Be sure to do your research and choose someone who is skilled, reliable, and fits your personal style and vision for your big day.
