Hiring a DJ for your wedding
is a big decision

it’s important to make sure you find the right one for your special day. A great DJ can make your wedding reception unforgettable, but a bad one can ruin the whole night.

So, what should you ask when hiring a DJ for your wedding? Let’s talk about some helpful questions to ask to ensure you find the perfect DJ for your wedding. Don’t be afraid to ask your Wedding Planner or Day of coordinator for some great DJ references. Often times, Wedding Planners/Coordinators and even officiants will have some Great recommendations to pass on.

What Is Your Experience With Weddings?

It’s important to find a DJ who has experience with weddings specifically. Weddings require a different skill set than other events, and it’s important to find someone who understands the flow of a wedding reception and how to keep the energy up. Ask the DJ how many weddings they have done and what their experience is in terms of working with wedding planners, photographers, and other vendors.

What Type of Music Do You Typically Play?

Every wedding is unique, and it’s important to find a DJ who can cater to your specific musical tastes and preferences. Ask the DJ what type of music they typically play and if they are open to taking requests. You should also discuss any specific songs or genres that you definitely want to hear at your wedding.

How Do You Handle Song Requests?

Speaking of requests, it’s important to discuss how the DJ will handle song requests from guests. Some DJs are open to taking requests throughout the night, while others prefer to stick to a pre-planned playlist. Make sure you and the DJ are on the same page about how requests will be handled.

Can You Provide References?

It’s always a good idea to ask for references from past clients. This can give you a better idea of the DJ’s experience and professionalism. Ask the DJ for a list of references and follow up with them to ask about their experience working with the DJ.

What Equipment Do You Use?

Make sure to ask the DJ about their equipment, including speakers, microphones, and lighting. You want to make sure they have high-quality equipment that is appropriate for the size and style of your wedding. You should also ask if they have backup equipment in case of any technical difficulties.

Will You Be The Only DJ At The Wedding?

Some DJ companies may send multiple DJs to an event, while others may have one main DJ who handles everything. Make sure you know who will be the DJ at your wedding and if there will be any additional staff or assistants.

What Is Your Setup Process?

Make sure to ask the DJ about their setup process and how long it will take. You want to make sure they have plenty of time to set up and test their equipment before the reception starts. You should also discuss any specific requirements or restrictions at your venue, such as noise levels or electrical outlets. It’s also important to ask what wireless mics they have for the officiant and bridal party members and guests for toasts/speeches.

What Is Your Pricing and Payment Structure?

Of course, pricing is an important factor to consider when hiring a DJ. Make sure to ask about their pricing and what is included in their packages. You should also discuss their payment structure and any deposit or cancellation fees.

Do You Have Liability Insurance?

Make sure to ask the DJ if they have liability insurance. This can protect you in case of any accidents or damages that may occur during the reception. This is HIGHLY recommended and we always advice our couples to hire a DJ that is an actual licensed and insured business. Do they have a contract? If so have your wedding planner or coordinator look at the contract and make sure it’s solid and protects you in the event of cancellation.

What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

Finally, make sure to discuss the DJ’s cancellation policy. You want to make sure you know what your options are if you need to cancel or reschedule your wedding.


Hiring a DJ for your wedding is an important decision, but asking the right questions can help ensure you find the perfect fit. By discussing their experience with weddings, musical preferences, equipment, pricing, and other important details, you can find a DJ who will help make your wedding reception unforgettable!
