Planning a wedding involves making a whole lot of high-pressured decisions: What do my bridesmaids wear? What sort of food should be served? Outdoor or indoor ceremony? But Nateboogee Entertainment knows that there's something else which is just as essential as any of these other decisions—what kind of wedding music should be played, and who should be in charge of it. Not only does this choice dictate the reception party, but it also sets the tone for the entire ceremony, from processional to recessional, including the father-daughter dance, the mother-son dance, and, of course, the last dance.
It is therefore extremely important that you find the right disc jockey for your wedding. The Los Angeles-based entertainment company Nateboogee Entertainment has some excellent advice about what questions you should ask your prospective musical entertainment:
- Will you be the DJ at our wedding? It seems counter-intuitive to ask, but many larger entertainment companies have multiple DJs under contract, and the one you are discussing everything with may not end up being the one who is actually working on your special day.
- How long will you hold the date for us? A professional DJ should be able to hold the date for you for long enough so that you can meet with her or him, as well as some others, and not feel pressured into anything. Some DJs will attempt to get you to commit to the services by claiming that a certain price expires at the end of the day, or that another couple is also interested in the same date. At minimum, a company should give you one week after the initial meeting to decide.
- How involved can we be in selecting music for the wedding? While most DJs are more than happy to oblige your requests or playlist, some may feel that this is not your business. You should make sure that you are on the same page with your DJ with regards to this.
