Hiring A Wedding DJ To Play At Your Wedding Reception
Deciding between hiring a live band or a DJ to spin recorded music is one of the biggest reception issues you’ll face. Both have their pros and cons; ultimately it’s a question of budget and taste (but then what part of wedding planning isn”t?). Both services generally offer a set price for four hours of music with play beginning right before or right after the cocktail hour, with an option to pay for overtime (if you’ll want this, it’s best to discuss it beforehand and have it written into the contract). Here is a comparison of the options, plus tips on contracts and reference checks. DJ Hustle
Having a DJ gives you the progression of a live performance. It’s conventional and particular, and the DJ you pick can do marvels to set the tone for your gathering — yet reserving one can be an expensive undertaking, and your melodic determinations won’t be restricted by the DJ’s collection and style.

Well known DJ’s get booked far ahead of time, so give yourself no less than a half year for the employing chase. To locate the correct DJ, approach companions and wedding experts for referrals and check your neighborhood daily paper for DJ postings. Once you’ve discovered a couple of applicants, make sure they:
- are available on your wedding date
- can play the songs you and your fiance love as well as a variety of music for your guests.
- are in your general price range
DJ’s may charge either a level expense or per performer, every hour. Most will arrange, yet it doesn’t pay to continue talking if there’s a huge dissimilarity between their cost and your financial plan. You’ll also need to determine if the band’s size meets your needs – some insist on a minimum or maximum number of pieces (performers). HustleTV
