Here are some questions to ask your DJ BEFORE asking the price: (Equipment, PLI, PAT, backup should be a given. The above are essential and not of much interest to any bride. Having this will not give you the best party of the most important day of your life. Just like a builder's toolbox and cement mixer won't guarantee you a beautiful extension.) Do you specialise in weddings or all events? Do you have any RECENT testimonials? And names with contact numbers supplied. What unique ideas do you have for my reception? How are you going find out what music my guests and we like? Show me lots of pictures of weddings you have played at. No, not your decks. Do you have a show-reel video? Do you have any inspiration to make our wedding different? Can we ask for music, but still have your advice and experience to ensure our party rocks? Will you communicate with our other wedding professionals on the day, to plan a timeline for our reception. Will it be FUN? Will it not be like any other wedding? Will you create lots of photo ops and memories for us? Is your price high enough to ensure that we're dealing with a full time professional? Will you meet us AGAIN before our big day to go through our plans and play-lists? Are you familiar with our venue? How will you work with our photographer/videographer to ensure we have amazing photos? Do you have a legal contract/guarantee and a suitable reservation fee? And when is the balance due? Hopefully NOT on the wedding day! Is your price too good to be true ? (remember the saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is) Will you be available for phone calls and messages any-time leading up to W-day? Will you listen to all our questions? Will you be working elsewhere earlier on our wedding day? Will you be the DJ at our wedding or send someone else? Will you be dressed to suit our tastes/occasion? Will you respect our wishes regarding volume and lighting choices? How many weddings have you performed at? How many weddings do you do each year? Are you going to make all the relevant announcements that are needed on your day, and how? Will you NOT be talking or (worse) singing over the songs you are playing? (Peter Kay’s take on wedding DJ’s sadly do exist) Will there be gaps between the songs or will you be mixing the music? How will you 'stage' the first dance for us? What ideas do you have for a spectacular ending of the party? How will you motive our guests if no one's dancing? Can we have a 'do NOT play' list? When do you arrive to set up? How do you acquire your music? Can we see pictures of the actual set up of your equipment? What procedures are in place if you’re ill and can’t perform? What if you break down? How up to date is your music? How soon should we book you?

Aaaaaaand finally...

How much????
