Before hiring a wedding DJ, it’s important to meet with a few prospects to determine who is the best fit for your big day. Here are some example questions to ask a potential wedding DJ to find out whether or not they have what it takes to make your wedding day all the more special.
Are You a Professional?
There are plenty of amateur wedding DJ’s out there looking to make their start. However, you will not want to go with an amateur DJ, and instead, hire a professional DJ. A professional DJ will display a sense of professionalism that amateurs just do not have. Additionally, as a professional DJ, there are guaranteed to be more reliable than any amateur and is also equipped with the quality equipment that a professional DJ needs to be a wedding DJ.
How Do You Create Playlists?
An important part of any wedding DJ is the playlist they bring to your wedding. You will want to know how they typically choose the set of songs they play. Do you work collaboratively with them? Does your wedding DJ provide any suggestions? Do you pick out the entire playlist? Do they mix the tracks together into a creative blend? This is important so you know exactly what songs will be played at your wedding, while also making sure your wedding DJ is not just hitting next on the playlist.
How Do You Keep the Crowd on the Dance Floor?
A good wedding DJ knows how to keep the crowd moving and on the dance floor. A bad one will easily lose the crowd. Talk with your potential wedding DJ about how they plan on connecting with the audience to keep their spirits up and their feet on the dance floor.
What is Your Equipment Like?
Before choosing a wedding DJ, you will want to get an idea of what their equipment is like. A professional DJ should come equipped with everything they already need, like a microphone, speakers, lighting system, etc. If they do not, then they are probably not the wedding DJ for you.
Why Should We Hire You?
Lastly, get a sense of what your prospective wedding DJ has to say when you put them on the spot. Give them a chance to convince you to hire them and put their best attributes front and center as a last effort to impress you.
