Planning a wedding can be a daunting task. A lot more goes into it than most couples ever consider. It is easy to feel like it's all becoming a bit too much after a certain point, especially when it comes to choosing your wedding DJ.
So why would it be a good thing to meet your DJ?
Well, for peace of mind, it isn't as simple as just typing "wedding DJ” into a search engine and quickly browsing a bunch of websites and looking through their photo galleries. If they have testimonials on their website, this may be a good start, but it will never replace meeting them face to face.
A professional DJ will offer the opportunity to sit down with them before you buy. These conversations (or a consultation) can make all the difference when it comes to your wedding day, so make sure you take advantage of them.
Ask all the questions you can think of and make sure the DJ can deliver what you have in mind. It is also vital that you have the opportunity to see whether you all 'click' as they can be with you for so much of your wedding day and represent such a large part of your wedding success. Use the consultation to make sure you'll be hiring someone you can be at ease with and who will be a positive addition to your day, after all, building up that level of rapport can only be a good thing.
Also, many modern wedding DJs will likely have a few options regarding the services they supply that may not always be transparent from simply reading the text on their websites.
Finally, your DJ has likely been to far more weddings than you have and will be a resource to you. They will advise you on elements that are enhanced with entertainment that you may have never considered.
As most married couples will likely tell you, finding a DJ who can provide what you are looking for; someone you will get along with; and will fit within your vision of your wedding day, is no small feat. That said, putting in the time and effort to meet them before you make any decisions are vital and the key to making your wedding day as enjoyable for you both as possible.
