Music To My Ears

Q My best friend hired a DJ based on a recommendation – and they failed to show on the day! What should we look for to make sure we hire the best – and how can we prevent this happening to us?
A Ian Conway says: While it's always good to get a recommendation from someone you know regarding a DJ you should always do your own research, as getting the right DJ for your wedding can literally make or break your day. Take a look at their website and social media and get a good feel for the work they've done, in particular what experience they have in playing at weddings. Always check their reviews on Facebook and Google and see what their previous clients have said, too. Most reputable wedding DJs will have lots of five star reviews available for you to read through. If they don't have a website and or very few reviews, move swiftly on! When you find one that looks and sounds good ask for a quotation, as well as finding out about their experience. Don't be afraid to ask to see pictures of their set up and their approach to meeting your music requirements. Some companies hire in DJs, so while their website and social media can look really professional this may not be the case for the DJ! So always make sure you know who is going to be the DJ at your wedding.
