Depending on where you are from, the factors that you have to consider when choosing your wedding music are dramatically different. In the past, many people won’t have used a DJ because of the misconception that a DJ is an obnoxious and loud person who encourages guests to do dances that you do not want to be a part of your most special day. But there is actually more to a wedding DJ. There are those who are known for making wedding events fun and memorable. If you have decided to hire one for your big day, here are some tips to make sure that you get the most out of your wedding DJ.
You have to establish from the get-go that you are the client and you are the boss. Let your DJ know what you want and make perfectly clear that he cannot make any independent judgment. Make sure that he knows that you absolutely do not want to hear even one song that is not on your personal playlist. Set the ground rules. There is nothing wrong with being a little aggressive. Put your rules and conditions in writing and let him acknowledge that he has read and understood it by asking him to sign it. A lot of wedding DJs prefer clients who are direct and upfront. You have to be careful, though, that you don’t come across as rude.
The next thing you need to do is to be specific about your wedding playlist. In case he does not have any good form that both of you can work with, then you better make your own. There are a lot of things you have to include like the music during the ceremony and the reception.
You should also decide if you will allow your wedding DJ Myrtle Beach to take requests. In case you do not want him to do so then you can instruct him to simply say that he does not have the requested music. He may have to explain that it was, in fact, your request not to accept requests in case someone becomes aggressive.
Another thing that you have to do is to be very specific when it comes to your “do not play” list. This the list of songs that you do not want to hear at your wedding, may it be during the ceremony or at the reception. You can never know what your guests may request and it will be better if you make sure that your wedding DJ knows ahead of time how you feel about these things.
Do not forget to give your playlist to your wedding DJ as early as you can. It can be between 30 – 90 days before the event. Wedding DJs have different systems in place and some of them may need to pull your desired playlist from their master systems. There are also those who require a lot of time to make sure that your playlist is ready in time for your big day.
