Lots of people have begun to hire DJs to provide entertainment at their weddings. Strictly speaking, a DJ is not very suitable for the music for the actual ceremony (a live band works much better for wedding music for the ceremony) but is perfect for the final part of the reception when everyone wants to let their hair down.

There are a few things that you should ask your DJ without fail before you hire this person. After all you can’t afford to make any mistakes when it comes to your wedding music. Be sure to find out if:

1. The DJ has performed at other wedding receptions before: This will at least ensure that the person knows what to expect and what kind of music the guests will enjoy. Wedding receptions are quite different from other types of parties and an experienced musician will know exactly what to do.

2. The person you speak to is the one who actually performs at your wedding reception. Lots of people are not aware of the fact that event organizers swap one DJ for another one based upon last minute availability.

3. The DJ is open to playing music of your choice. It is understood that experienced music professionals tend to know best what guests want. However, if there is a particular song that you really want your guests to dance to then your DJ should be supportive to you.

4. The person uses the best type of equipment. When it comes to recorded music, the quality of the equipment is of the utmost importance or else the sound output will not be good. In fact, the kind of equipment used should be specified in the contract so that there is no question of deviation.

5. The DJ will also take on the job of an MC. There are many different announcements that have to be made during the event. If you have to hire an MC separately then your costs will go up unnecessarily. A good DJ should be able to get the guests involved, perhaps even getting them to participate in various events and certainly getting them to the dance floor.

Be sure to take the time to organize your wedding music well in advance of the actual day. You will be very glad that you planned things well by asking the right questions of your musicians when you see how much fun your guests are having.
