Here are some things to keep in mind while on the hunt. For Saturday's during the summer season, book approximatley 8-12 months in advance. Brides, be
sure to always meet with your DJ right from the beginning to be sure that you "click" and that he/she knows exactly what your looking for musically. Brides have enough things going on leading up to the wedding besides having to worry about who the DJ is going to be.
Some other thought to consider:
Does the DJ truly understand the importance of your day? Too many DJ's think of a wedding as just another "gig" and treat it the same as they would treat a night club or bar job. They fail to realize that a wedding is one of the biggest and most important days in the couples lives. They fail to realize the emotional and financially attachment involved in this one day. They fail to realize that this is an "event" and not just another "gig". Will the DJ dress appropriately? Will the DJ take and play requests? Will the DJ do what he/she promised to do? Will they say everyone's names correctly during the introductions? etc. If they use the word "gig" when referring to your wedding, keep looking.
Finally, the most important thing about hiring a DJ, which is often overlooked or hidden behind sales pitches and bright lights, is the music. Can the DJ play the type of music you and your guests want played? Will they play the music you want to hear? Can they beat-mix or do they just fade the songs in and out. Pick the genres of music you want played and then ask the DJ to name off 5-8 songs in that genre. However if doing this, maybe give the DJ one of two songs that you consider a part of a specific genre as your idea of that genre of music may be different than the DJ's.
