Helpful tips when looking for a DJ:
(These could apply to other vendors as well)
Some things to ask your vendor:
- Do you use a written contract? Be sure to read the contract to make sure your questions are answered before signing.
- What is your preferred method to communicate? Make sure you have multiple ways to get in touch with them and make sure they respond to you in a reasonable amount of time.
- Make sure you know who your DJ will be and that the two of you can "get along." Also, make sure the DJ knows where to set up their gear by meeting them at the location of your event before the day of the event.
- Get references, check with them, and be sure to look for and read reviews. Also, ask what the policy is on eating, drinking, and smoking while he/she is working.
- Ask for pictures and/or video of their setup. While everyone would love to see their DJ at work before hiring them, unless they are a regular at a club or do a weekly karaoke show, that may be impossible.
- A professional vendor will be flexible and work with you to meet your needs. They can suggest ideas about what will look good and work well, but ultimately, they should be willing to do it "your way." The same thing should apply to your reception hall. While they can (and probably will) tell you how they do other weddings, you do not have to follow this rule.
- Ask about insurance. At the very least, they should be carrying a One Million dollar liability policy. This should be a commercial business insurance, not an add on to their homeowner's policy.
