We ended up booking our Wedding DJ two years in advance. We were glad we did as everything was meticulously planned and the night went perfectlyRichard
When to book your Wedding DJ
There is so much you need to think about when you are trying to organise a wedding. The Wedding venue, the reception venue, the cars, the flowers, the bridesmaid’s dresses, the wedding dress………..well you get the idea! What about the DJ for your reception? When do you need to think about this and get it organised?
With years of experience, it is our view that you need to get this sorted out as early as you can. The same issues happen with a decent Mobile Dj as it would with the Church or the Wedding Cars, if the service is good then they will be in high demand! Remember that most people get married on a Saturday and the summer months are most popular. That means if you are looking to hire a wedding disco then they will be in high demand at such times. If you know your wedding is in two years on the first Saturday in June then do not leave it until the January or February of that year to hire a DJ. The good ones will all be booked!
Why is hiring a Wedding Disco so important?
If you take the whole Wedding Day into consideration then how much of it will involve the Wedding DJ and Disco? Maybe around a third of it? We have seen events where the Disco at the reception may be for six even seven hours of the whole day. If the DJ you hire is naff then that will leave a poor lasting memory for you and your guests.
- Do your homework early – so many of our Wedding Disco bookings have come through recommendations and repeat business. Remember you are unlikely to be able to see a Wedding Disco in action unless you get an invite to someone else’s wedding beforehand. Speak to your friends and work colleagues for recommendations.
- Book your wedding DJ early – Weddings tend to happen in the popular summer months, and often on a Saturday. Book your Wedding DJ early to avoid disappointment
- Keep in touch with your Wedding DJ – Make sure the DJ has early contact with your reception venue to organise the passing of insurance details and set up requirements. There is no need for you to be ‘piggy in the middle’ of they are talking to each other. Discuss the running of events and playlists ‘dos and don’ts’ as early as you can too. The playtime at a Wedding reception can be much longer than a normal party. The DJ will need to do his homework.
- Get a written confirmation and a contract if necessary – If you have Wedding Insurance then you may need these to cover yourself if something goes wrong.
