Wenning's Wedding Tip Wednesday
Making your decision on entertainment based on videos is another one of those wedding planning misconceptions that brides are told to do. A lot of times, the suggestions given are outdated or simply incorrect. This month we are focusing our Wednesday Wedding Tip toward common wedding planning misconceptions.
You do not want to let a video you see of a DJ be you final decision maker. The video that you watch is going to be something very similar to highlight clip. Just like with movies and photos, almost anyone can make and edit a video to make them look amazing. During that video there will be no way to see how the DJ interacts with other vendors and no time to discuss your specific wedding details to be sure they can accommodate.
If you choose to make your decision solely on the clip you watched you may not ask some key questions. At the very least be sure to have a conversation with the DJ to determine their sound and style in order to get a feel for their personality. Will the DJ be a good fit for your family and friends? You want to be sure to take into consideration their organizational skills as well. This will give you an idea on how they multi-task and utilize their time. Other vendors as well as venues may be able to share insight on the DJ also. Ideally, you want to know does this entertainer “play well with others”?
There isn’t usually one deciding factor that you can go from when selecting your entertainment. Do your research and ask as many questions as you can think of to be sure you are hiring someone you think will make your special day memorable!
