5 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Wedding DJ , South Hackensack, New Jersey

Selecting a wedding DJ and MC is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make leading up to your big day. Not only does the music set the tone for your celebration, but the DJ will also ensure a smooth flow of events at your reception. Below are five questions you should ask before deciding.

5 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Wedding DJ & MC

1. Do You Have the Date Open? 

First, make sure they’re available on your wedding date. Some DJs have packed schedules and can be busy throughout the year. If they have the date open, ask if they are working at other weddings that day and whether they have a time limit. 

2. Can We Meet the DJ and MC? 

If you’re working with an event entertainment company with several different wedding DJs and MCs, ask if you can meet the person who will be performing at your event. Meeting them in person allows you to get a feel for their personality and level of professionalism. The DJ is responsible for keeping the party going, so choose someone who is fun and respectful. Also, make sure they’re communicative and willing to answer all your questions.

Although there are many traditional wedding and reception songs, you may have a few personal selections that are important to you and your spouse, friends, or family. Or, you may have an eclectic taste and prefer to stay away from certain genres altogether. Either way, check that the DJ is willing to work with your playlist. If there are a few songs you or your betrothed can’t stand, make sure the DJ agrees not to play those.

4. Do You Have Insurance?

A reputable DJ and MC will carry their own insurance coverage. This protects both you and them if there’s an accident—for example, a guest could spill their glass of champagne on a nearby piece of audio equipment, resulting in expensive repair costs. To avoid any potential liabilities, always check to see if the professional you hire is insured.

5. How Do You Personalize Events?

Communication is key to planning your event, and a quality DJ will take the time to discuss the details with you beforehand. They’ll coordinate the music, sound equipment, and lighting, so you can enjoy a fully immersive atmosphere. Your MC can also help you come up with creative ways to introduce members of the wedding party, host competitions, and engage the crowd.
