Questions to Ask Before Booking Your Entertainment Service

1. Is this your full-time business? Are weddings your primary focus? What clubs, lounges, and corporate clients have you performed for in addition to weddings?

Determine whether they are a well-rounded, successful entertainer who can bring a level of expertise and versatility to your event. 


2. How do you customize the music experience for each couple? Can you help with song lists and providing suggestions?

Find a service that will create a soundtrack for your wedding that is based on your style, taste, and vision for that day.

A professional entertainment service will gladly accept your must-play and do-not-play lists, no matter how short or long. 


3. How do you get the crowd pumped?

There are all kinds of incentives that DJs use to encourage guests to storm the dance floor, whether it's asking couples to join the newlyweds for a good-luck dance or playing a meaningful throwback song from the bridesmaids' college days.

Ask them how to get the crowd pumped, but, more importantly, listen to their music demos or watch wedding performances to get a sense of how they will interact with your guests in person. Interviewing prospective DJs is certainly helpful, but hearing them in action will really seal the deal.


4. How do you handle song requests?

Some services (with the permission of the newlyweds) may tell partygoers that they need to stick to their playlist, but they'll do their best to fit in their song, while others will appoint a bridesmaid or relative to screen particular requests (so that the DJ doesn't need to interrupt the new Mr. and Mrs. mid-dance). 


5. Do you have back-up equipment?

DJs should always have the equivalent of a "flat spare" on hand, whether it be a microphone, computer, mixer, etc. Don't forget to ask how soon before the reception they plan to arrive and how long it will take for them to set up.


6. Have you played at our chosen wedding venue before? If not, can you make a site visit beforehand?

The sound varies drastically depending on the room where your reception will be held. 


7. What other services do you offer (e.g. lighting, HD video screens)?

Some entertainment service's packages come with extra services such as intelligent lighting and video screens. 


8. Why should I choose you as my wedding entertainment service?

Is it their amazing sound equipment? Their can-do-anything personality? Or is it their professionalism and dedication towards making your wedding a success? Hopefully, all of the above!
