Questions to ask a DJ before booking

DJ desk with fairylight curtains and laser lights Q – I’m overwhelmed by the number of DJs available. What questions should we ask a supplier to help narrow down our search?

"Before booking, ask yourself are they reliable? Have they ever failed to turn up or cancelled on anyone?

"Will they personalise your show to suit your requirements? It’s your wedding, and your supplier should be there to support you. They will advise you, and nothing should be too much trouble for them.

"What equipment do they provide for a full set up and are they insured? Their equipment should regularly be added to and updated. Ours includes a full sound system, laser lights, LEDs, uplighting and a smoke machine. It needs to be PAT tested yearly by qualified electricians who can provide a copy of the certificate if needed.

"What music do they provide? We have 1000s of digital tracks from as far back as the 1950s until the present day. Your DJ should cover a wide range of genres and provide a playlist that can be downloaded in advance.

"Will they be dressed appropriately? They should dress smartly after all your guests make an effort, so why shouldn’t they?"
