Guide to Finding the Perfect Wedding DJ

Your guide to finding the perfect wedding DJ, so here’s a question.

Question: Which matters most?

  1. Do you want an average Wedding DJ to do an average job?


  1. Do you want a Top Wedding DJ who knows what you want, does an awesome job and creates the perfect party you desire?

You’d be surprised how many people actually answer yes to question 1, but, and it’s a big but, then regret their decision. You are not going to get married again (hopefully ), so you have only 1 chance to get this right.

Should I pick a friend to be my Wedding DJ?

Don’t automatically go with someone you know, a cousin, a friend or acquaintance. Let their qualifications be the determining factor. Will they issue you with a contract? Is their equipment up to standard? Are they comfortable in a wedding setting? Just because they did a great job in the local pub with a couple of pints in them doesn’t make them qualified for the most special day of your life. You want a professional Wedding DJ.

Ask for referrals. The friend or cousins wedding which was great. Ask them for their Wedding DJ’s name. Check out Facebook and Instagram and see the videos they’ve posted, the reviews they’ve gotten. 

A very important part about choosing your DJ is knowing exactly what you want. What music you love and want on the day. Has he experience playing this genre? Some people love Rap, Hip Hop or even Metal. Has your Wedding DJ experience with these types of music? Will your DJ know what song to play to get people on the floor and more importantly, keep them on the floor. 

Create a list of Wedding Djs

Create a list of the Wedding DJs you are interested in getting to know and getting a quote from. 

Contact all the Wedding DJs on your list. Even if you have a great conversation with the first one, still contact the rest. They may offer something different that you didn’t even think about. Maybe you now want a DJ and Sax act and not just a Wedding DJ on their own.

How did your Wedding DJ reply?

Once you send your initial email, how did the Wedding DJ reply? Was it a simple one line message telling you what they are charging or were they actually interested in you and your day? 

When you have gotten your replies and quotes, again don’t automatically go for the cheapest one. The DJ charging more is doing so for a reason. Have they more experience? Are they in higher demand? If so, they can command a higher fee. 

Call your Wedding DJ

MAKE THE CALL…. Contact your short list of DJs and ring them. Even Zoom with them. How do they sound on the phone? Are they friendly? Do they understand what you want for your day? Are they invested in offering you the best service they can? You can learn so much more from a simple phone call than 100 emails would ever do. 

You will know, after you’ve called your list of DJs, which one is right for you and will give you the perfect party for your wedding.  

A great DJ is worth their weight in gold and it’s important to choose value over cost. Don’t ruin a great wedding with a bad DJ.
