In the meantime, make sure you get the most out of your wedding DJ with the following tips and tricks to keep the day running as smoothly and professionally as possible.
Make sure they know who’s boss.
If you’re very picky about the type of music you want to be played at your wedding, be specific about it with your DJ up front. If you’re only talking in general genres, but have specific songs in mind and haven’t told your DJ, you might go through your entire wedding without hearing them.
Be very specific about your playlist.
A lot of DJs will give you a form to fill out ahead of time, so that he or she can start compiling all the necessary songs for your big day. If you’re not given a form, make your own and give it to your DJ weeks before the big day. This way, if there are any questions or disparities, they can get worked out ahead of time.
Decide ahead of time if you want to let your guests make requests.
Requests can get kind of messy, but at the same time, they provide a lot of fun and participation for the guests at your wedding. Whichever course you decide to take, let the DJ know beforehand if you’ll be allowing your guests to make requests or not.
Be even more specific about your “Do Not” playlist.
If there is something you absolutely do not want to hear, make it clear. The chances that you’ll be able to build out an extensive playlist that will last four hours is slim, and your DJ will have to fill in the gaps based on his impression of your taste. Let him know what you don’t want to hear.
Get your playlist to your DJ as quickly as possible.
Make sure he or she has all the info needed fast. This way, if they can’t find any songs, or if there is confusion on when music is to be played, you can work it out ahead of time.
Do some background research on your DJ before you hire them.
The best DJs are the ones that bring a little personality to the event without overpowering the lucky couple. Talk to friends and family about wedding DJs they’ve hired, and figure get some feedback before you sign on the dotted line.
