Some Wedding DJs Lie

How to Find Reputable Wedding DJs

How to Make Sure Your Wedding DJ Will Deliver

Promises, Promises, Promises!

One of the most important things you need to know about hiring a professional DJ is how to make sure they are who they say they are and can deliver what they say they can. A money-back guarantee is the best sign that the company you’ve hired will be able to deliver what they say they can. No one wants to work for free, no matter how much they enjoy their work.

The second-best way to determine the reputability of your DJ is to call references. Some DJs will have a list of references that they will gladly give you to call. However, these will either be hand-picked couples or, worse, people who’ve never actually hired the DJ.

A professional DJ is booked almost every weekend during the busy season, so ask the DJ for the phone number of a couple from a random date to call for a reference. Any company that balks at this is most likely hiding something. A good wedding DJ will feel confident that every wedding they’ve done was of the highest quality.

Stay away from DJs who will allow you to check up on them at someone else’s wedding. First off, it is VERY unprofessional to invite strangers to a private reception. Secondly, if a DJ is willing to be distracted at someone else’s wedding to talk to you; he will also indulge in this unprofessional manner at your wedding reception. Plus, you will never get a complete picture of the DJ’s abilities by spending a few minutes standing in the corner at a stranger’s wedding.

It is what you DON’T see that will hurt you, such as, if was he on time, if he was prepared and organized, if he pronounced everyone’s name correctly, etc. More than one of the brides from the stories above watched their DJ at a stranger’s wedding and later regretted it by saying, “I went and saw him and he looked like he was doing fine.” This type of “preview” can only give a false sense of security about your DJ’s abilities.
