You are looking for the right DJ for your wedding. Most couples start by asking family and friends if they know of any good wedding DJs in the area they have seen and can recommend. No matter how many DJ companies provided, all bridal couples will look online to read customer reviews on such sites as Yelp and WeddingWire. After reading reviews, you may narrow down or increase your list of potential music entertainers at your wedding to about three. This will give you a good idea of how much a “good” wedding DJ will cost. Next, you call each DJ company on the phone and tell them what your are looking for in a DJ. They tell you about their services and expected fees. Get it right DJ and don’t screw up!
Get It Right DJ – Hire The Right DJ
In the month leading up to the wedding, you correspond with the DJ letting them know what styles of music you like and the theme of the wedding so they can dress appropriately. You also provide the DJ with a SPECIFIC list of songs to be played at the ceremony and reception and songs not to be played. The reception song lists includes songs for all formal dances. During the process, you create a friendly bond with the DJ of your wedding. Typically DJs are very personable and entertain crowds. DJs are cliched as being entertainers – as they should be and generate friends very easily.
Your wedding day is here. The wedding ceremony goes on without a hitch. Bridal party members tell you the reception area is ready and all set. The wedding cake has arrived and looks beautiful, the uplighting transformed the reception venue into fantasyland and the DJ is already playing music for early arriving guests.
The time has come. The moment you have been waiting since first planning every detail of the wedding reception. The bride and groom grand entrance into the reception facility. You hear the heart pounding music playing and the DJ pumping up the crowd with the anticipation of all of your wedding guests waiting for you to arrive. The hall doors swing open and there you are. You have arrived!
The DJ announces, “It is my pleasure to introduce to you the NEW Mr. and Mrs. Brett Michaels”. BAM! It feels like you have been hit by a Mack truck. Your last name is not Michaels. It is Mickels. Yes, this does happen and does happen too often.
Please do not leave it up to the DJ to know the pronunciation of your name. Please have a member of the wedding party or a good friend of the family speak to the DJ before your entrance and be sure they can pronounce your names correctly. This must be done at the wedding reception as a reminder to the DJ for any name. Sometimes the DJ will not speak to bridal couples the last two weeks leading up to their wedding day and may forget the proper pronunciation.
