When it comes to wedding entertainment the first thing that comes to mind is hiring a good wedding DJ that has the total package to make your big day a huge hit. What does the total package mean when hiring a DJ? Some DJ’s will cater more than others and that is the bottom line. It also depends on the quality of the company their specific values and their mission statement to really gauge how far they will go for their client. If you have a wedding planner then maybe you will not need to be catered to much by the DJ but if you don’t maybe you do need that extra attention. The expectations of the DJ can be very different from the client vs. the company. What are you to expect when your DJ is hired?
It really is up to the client but some companies will go far and above typical expectations for their clients big day. Some examples of what you could expect your DJ to do that are not expected: bring you an umbrella if it starts to rain, serve you your food and pretty much be your server throughout the night, periodically ask if the music is ok or you care to listen to a favorite song, get you more booze, get you a clean-up marker because you spilled wine on your shirt, being on the same page as far as introductions and music, setting you up for success, etc. Allowing friends and family to make song requests is another way to get your people more involved into the event and make them feel special while dancing to their favorite song. Most DJ companies understand the importance of your big wedding event and what to go out of their way to make it that much more special. Especially if you put up a tip jar that gives them more incentive to go that extra mile.
The flow of your wedding day relies on the DJ’s timing, music and energy. Everything from the ceremony to the last dance has to be all coordinated through the DJ. The wedding DJ probably plays the biggest role of your day and is under high stress to make it a successful wedding event. It’s important to ask the DJ’s company what level of commitment and expectations they will have on your day. How helpful will they be when you need them most especially because most couples cannot afford a wedding planner to make the day go smooth as you envisioned it to go. Making sure your expectations are clear will help you better understand what to expect out of your wedding DJ. Finding the total package out of a DJ with a company that cares about its client relations should be your number one priority. Definitely do not undershoot our your budget with a DJ because you will get what you paid for and will regret it for the rest of your life. Most quality DJ’s start about five hundred dollars per event and are worth every penny. My friend did not hire a DJ and really effected his day as his event ended by 8:30pm. Do not be that guy who plays the I-POD on shuffle and is a hit or miss song selection for the biggest day of your life. Call A Music Plus today.
