Wedding Entertainment: 6 Suggestions for Selecting a Wedding DJ

Custom by Nicole
With a multitude of entertainment options to choose from, how do engaged couples select the right entertainer for their once-in-a-lifetime celebration? The stakes are high, as guests are less likely to remember a cold fish dinner than a wedding entertainer whose performance was ice cold! Here, we offer six suggestions on how to find the perfect wedding DJ to rock your reception and get the most of your wedding planning .
1. Word of Mouth and Referrals: A wedding entertainer is very hard to describe via websites, blogs and brochures. If you have attended a wedding where you loved the music and entertainment, this can be a great starting point in your research. Similarly, if a friend or co-worker raved about their DJ, this is valuable information. What in particular did they like about their wedding DJ ? Was it their thorough preparation, transparent business practices, musical selections, dance skills, or something else?

2. Experience Counts: A wedding Emcee's duty is to keep the reception program moving smoothly. Transitions should be smooth and pacing is important. An experienced DJ understands the flow of a wedding reception and offer seamless transitions. They understand the importance of working with the team of vendors (banquet manager, photographer, videographer). They will better be able to address potential problems that can crop up at receptions. Ask your prospective wedding DJ what percent of their annual events are weddings, and how many weddings they have worked at in the past.

3. Styles Vary: Are you looking for an elegant event with music at moderate volumes, or for extreme party rockers? Is a magnificent light show important? Are you seeking a high or low level of guest interaction? Do you like the typical line dances, or are you looking for something more contemporary? There is no right or wrong answer, but it is important to align yourself with a wedding DJ whose style matches the intended style of your event, or else is flexible to incorporate your preferences. You can get a sense of style compatibility in your initial phone or meeting interviews. First impressions are important - do you connect on a personal level and believe that you can work well with this individual?

4. Professionalism: The term "professional DJ" is hard to verify. However, characteristics of a professional DJ include:
  • professional grade equipment (i.e., no dilapidated, carpeted speakers from the 1970s or home stereo equipment);
  • a professional website;
  • testimonials, preferably gained over a period of time, as well as a list of references;
  • member in professional organization such as the American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA)
  • carries liability insurance;
  • participates in industry conventions and continuing education, to elevate their craft;
  • carries back-up equipment to each event; and
  • responsive to your phone and e-mail communications.

5. Planning: The level and modes of reception planning vary....
