Are all wedding DJs the same?
The answer to that is a resounding no! There are so many different DJs around these days; from music and lighting professionals, to silent discos and more. It’s true, anyone can purchase the right equipment and call themselves a DJ, just as anyone who owns a camera can call themselves a photographer. However, for such an important occasion you will want to obtain more satisfying results by using the services of professionals in both instances.
Brides increasingly look for and expect a greater level of sophistication from today’s wedding DJ. To provide this level of service requires commitment, dedication and focus. The good news is that many have risen to this challenge and provide, even exceed, these expectations. They will listen to your ideas and offer suggestions and advice to make your wedding reception truly unique.
How do I know if I’ve made the right choice?
A professional will spend time planning your event weeks, even months, in advance. This can include meetings with you and a visit to the venue to meet with your function manager. Some venues even have their own recommendations of DJs to use, these people probably work in partnership with the venue often and are generally a safe choice. A good choice will spend time checking every detail so that nothing is left to chance on this important day.
If you want to go for the cheapest then just phone around until you find one that suits your price. If, however, you want your evening to be a unique and fitting celebration for you and your guests then you will need to do a little more work – but it’ll be worth it. You could ask friends and family for recommendations or take a look at the reviews on the Guides for Bride’s Disco and DJ listings. When you’ve chosen your favourite listing, simply fill out the enquiry form and we can put you in touch.
