You are going to be standing up there in front of your family and friends saying the most important words that you have ever uttered. You life will be forever altered after your big day. So, with that being said, we know that you want to make sure that every aspect of your wedding comes off with the utmost professionalism and provides every bit of enjoyment that it possibly can. One of those aspects that is so very important is your entertainment for your reception. When it comes time to finding a professional DJ for your reception, there are many factors that you will want to consider in order to hire the perfect fit for what you want. We are here to help you in that department so we have provided a brief guide below. This guide should help you as you head out into the Cincinnati area to find the right wedding DJ for you.
How serious should you take this search? Well, let's just say if you could be present at a reception that had a lesser quality DJ, you would probably start taking it very seriously. There are some so called professionals that would have your guests running for the exits. We want to avoid that kind of situation at all costs. So, with that in the back of your mind, plan on doing some intense footwork. Whoever you end up considering, you will want to do some research on them and be prepared to interview any potential DJ by asking them an insightful list of questions that will help you make a final determination.
Right off the bat, ask any candidate whether they work off of a written legal contract. If they say no, then move onto another candidate. This will protect both parties and should be an absolute must. While you are meeting with a potential wedding DJ, if they try and put the squeeze on you in order to book their services, cross them off of your list. We cannot stress how important this experience is. How long have they been in business? How many weddings have they done in the last year? Do not and we repeat do not be a the client who gives an aspiring DJ one of their first gigs. A seasoned veteran will understand what needs to be done and when and they will know how to overcome certain pitfalls. One last thing, make sure their experience is in performing at weddings. How did they learn the craft? You must look at video of how they go about their business. Pay attention to whether you like their style.
Talk about your venue and get their comments about setup and acoustics. Are they comfortable being an emcee? How do they work with the crowd? Are they good at getting people involved? How much say can you have in the choice of music that is played? Will they take requests? What do they wear normally when they perform at a wedding? Check out their package deals. Notice what is included. Do they require a security deposit to book them? What if you want them to stay longer than you originally agreed to? Ask them about a meal and breaks.
This is a lot of great information to gather on each candidate. Now it is time to do a side by side comparison. As you weigh each factor, you should be able to choose a candidate who fits your needs and wants. Remember though, don't let money be the only determining factor. You do get what you pay for in many instances. The main thing is you want to be satisfied with your choice because the stakes are high. We wish you well with your search and eventual hire.
