Looking for a Wedding DJ in Baltimore? Ask the Right Questions

Websites are great, but you won’t truly get to know a DJ until you meet with him or her and ask them a few questions. This will allow you to make a much more well-informed decision and ensure you have the perfect DJ for your big day.

  1. Why did you become a wedding DJ? Is this just a hobby or is truly a passion of theirs? You want a DJ who enjoys what they do, not one that is just in it to make a few extra bucks.
  2. How much experience do you have? There is something to say about experience. An experienced DJ has seen it all before and will know what to do no matter what happens. This will help your wedding day go off without a hitch.
  3. May I see photos or videos from past weddings? Is your potential DJ’s set up visually appealing and professional? Unfortunately, every DJ setup is not created equally.
  4. What’s your wedding attire? Similar to No. 3, you want a wedding DJ that looks the part.
  5. Do you have a backup plan? What happens if the equipment stops working in the middle of the event? Is there a contingency plan?
  6. Can you walk me through your contract? Look over the contract together and do not hesitate to ask questions about anything or any charges you do not understand.
  7. What’s your song selection process? Your DJ should be willing to work with you to craft a playlist specifically for your big day. This typically includes a “DO NOT PLAY” list.
  8. How do you handle requests during the event? Make sure they are willing to match guest requests up to your “Do Not Play” list and general music preferences.
  9. Can you give us an example of your mic style? Your DJ also acts as the emcee of your event. You want to make sure his/her mic style suits your wants and needs. This is the person that will introduce you, for the first time, as husband and wife. This is the person that will facilitate your entire reception. This is the person responsible for keeping the party going!
  10. Anything else on your mind? Now’s the time to ask!
