Tips on Finding a DJ

You’ve invested a significant amount of time and money into your wedding day.  You’ve researched locations, flowers, dresses, tuxedos, photographers, videographers and several other things.  You’ve made your choices and now your day is here.

Your off to your ceremony and it goes great.  You take pictures and everything is perfect.  Now it’s time to head to the reception and finally start to relax as the party gets started.  Now it’s all up to your DJ and MC to take care of your reception.  It’s something you want to feel very comfortable about and not worry.  You want to make sure you go to your reception thinking ‘My DJ’s got this!’

What are some important factors to consider when looking for a DJ?

Reception Flow

You want to make sure your reception is fun for you and all your guests.  You want to make sure the evening flows smoothly.  A DJ & MC are key components to making sure that happens for you.  They need to be able to take control of the evening and make it happen the way you want it to happen so that you don’t worry about it.

You have your first dance, cake cutting, dinner, and a host of other items that you want to take place around a certain time so that things flow well.  Make sure you go over this with your DJ so they can make it happen that night so you don’t have to worry about it.

Music List

It goes without saying that you want your DJ to have and play all the songs you and your guests want to hear.  Make sure you go over your list of favorite artists, songs and genres.  Just as important as what you want to hear is what you don’t want to hear.  Make sure go over the songs and types of music you don’t want to hear.


An MC is someone you need to talk to your guests and let them know what’s going on.  They’ll keep the flow going and make sure you and your guests are having a great time.  They’re always on the lookout to see what they need to do and what they need to say to keep the party going.

Hired Help

You hired a photographer and videographer.  A good DJ will make sure your photographer and videographer are present and ready to go before announcing any of the evenings big events.


The most important thing is to hire someone you click with.  You’re putting your reception in their hands.  Get a good connection and keep communicating as your wedding day approaches.

Keeping all this in mind will help you ensure you find a great DJ.  Happy Hunting and enjoy your special day!
