Posted by on Dec 15, 2015 in Blog, Entertainment

Getting married is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a day when your life is going to change forever. You are making the commitment to spend the rest of your life with another individual. Because of this, you want everything to be perfect. One of the main facets of most wedding receptions is a DJ. These individuals are responsible for playing the music for your first dance and bringing life to the room. To make sure you get what you want, here are three questions to ask potential DJs.

Are there restrictions on music played?

Some DJs aren’t willing to play certain music. You need to know what that music is to make sure it doesn’t go against what you are looking for. Let’s say you want nothing but Christian contemporary music played and they won’t play it. You aren’t going to be happy and your wedding reception isn’t going to be what you want.

Are you willing to make the announcements?

Many DJs aren’t comfortable with making any announcements over the microphone. They would prefer that the site manager or someone else at the reception make the announcements instead. However, there are some who are fine with announcing the dances, bride and groom entrance, and so on. It is important that you know if the individual you hire is willing to do this or if you need to have someone else on stand by to handle the task.

Can you play music provided by the bride and groom?

Oftentimes, brides and grooms like to create their own playlist from their music collection. This is where you would simply provide everything to the DJ and they would play them at the appropriate times for you. If this is something you want to do, you need to make sure the DJ is comfortable with doing that for you. This helps make the DJs job easier since they don’t have to worry about doing all of the guesswork.

In knowing the answers to these questions, you can make an informed decision on who you want to hire and what they can do for you. The last thing you want to do is hire a DJ only to find that they aren’t going to work for your reception needs. Spending the time to talk with the wedding DJ and get a feel for who they are and what they have to offer can go a long way in helping you create the perfect wedding.
