Honestly, the subject of whether or not you should visit a
DJ 'at a wedding' has been a long debated topic among DJs
as well as brides. Common sense tells me that there
is a simple answer.
A DJ that openly invites you to visit them 'on the job' at another
couples wedding should tell you that they will be
inviting strangers to YOUR wedding. Not only do I feel
that this is in bad taste, but with this situation noone wins.
When strangers arrive at a wedding, it creates a split loyalty
from the performing DJ - They are now focusing on
'auditioning' for the prospects, and may put the real
wedding client's agenda second in order to 'show off'.
Worse, the uninvited guests peeking in the room or
standing against the wall are extremely distracting
to the guests as well as the DJ. I also feel that
they are just as uncomfortable being there as they
are unwelcome. Besides, they will never understand
the service that the DJ provides unless they stay
the entire evening, which is extremely inappropriate.
I was just told a horror story from another DJ that said
that a couple that posed as DJ customers was caught
stealing at a wedding. They would 'routinely' call DJs
to be invited to a wedding, and when noone was looking,
they would wipe out the head table's purses!
So when is the right time to meet your DJ?
The absolute best time to meet your DJ is when you have
their undivided attention, at a private meeting. Your DJ
can bring highlight video which will demonstrate
different formalities and how they handle
them at a reception.
By this, I don't mean a highly edited flashy video
designed to make them look good, that's not the
point here. But you don't have to hold up a wall for
6 hours just to see the formalities and how they are run.
Not only that, but you will be able to discuss
YOUR reception in great detail, see if the DJ is a
good match for you, and hear suggestions on how to make
YOUR reception unique and unforgettable.
Only trust your reception to a professional that you
trust and believe in their approach.
Panhandle DJ prices vary from around $300 to $2,500 with an average rate being $600 to $1,500. Beware of 'SUSPICIOUSLY CHEAP' DJs, as they wouldn't be so cheap if they actually took pride in their work, and put in the many hours of planning and detail work that is involved in
proper reception planning.
