Raleigh Limos Wedding Guide

Let us help you!

With a mountain of details to cover and tasks to fulfill before the big day, planning your wedding may seem like quite the challenge. One of those details that spawn to life shortly after you book the venue for your reception is regarding the entertainment. What sort of entertainment would go well and be engaging in the provided space? Traditionally, most couples will choose between hiring a professional disc-jockey and a live wedding band to provide musical entertainment, but it is your preference and your budget. Both options have their share of strengths and weaknesses, but in general disc-jockeys are the easiest to correspond and coordinate in addition to being incredibly cost-effected in comparison to a live band which is better able to produce a special type of atmosphere and ambiance but come at additional costs and hassle in regards to coordination. Raleigh has a plethora of entertainment options available at your disposal. If you are looking for a disc-jockey, the guide provided below should prove to be quite useful in your search.

The first step is to ask your friends, family, and trusted colleagues for their recommendations on disc-jockey candidates. You should try to ask those who have been married recently, or perhaps have been involved in a wedding to some degree. You will want to discuss with a venue coordinator their disc-jockey recommendations, because they may produce a list of preferred or exclusive vendors in which you may be required to make your selections from. Another great resource is online wedding directories or guide websites as they provide great informational sources on wedding vendors including details on pricing, bridal testimonials, reviews, pictures, videos, etc.! It helps to focus on professionals who specialize in weddings and boast their experience. Call each candidate up, and ask of their availability on the date of your wedding. You really ought to stick with booking appointments with those that are not yet accounted for.

The next step is to start the appointment process off with each company or candidate. You will want to ask each prospective disc-jockey plenty of questions, and you need to share your vision of the wedding music with them. You will want to ask them of their experience in the field, and how many weddings they perform for on a yearly average. You should ask for a video of them demonstrating their abilities at a previous wedding, most professionals are more than willing to comply with this request. Go over song list details, guest song requests, and more crucially, their microphone or emcee style. Be sure to deliver your expectations to them verbally, and be certain they understand this. If you foresee yourself being comfortable with this person, exchange personal information, and discuss the costs of their services. It is wise to ask for a sample invoice from each candidate so you can determine who is going to deliver the most bass for your buck by comparing each prospective disc-jockey side-by-side.

It will help to take some time to deliberate with your partner and loved one in order to determine which DJ will be the right one for you, but you should remember to trust your instincts. As long as you do these things, you should feel pretty comfortable with a particular DJ. Once this happens, you ought to sign a contract right away with them, and place a deposit to ensure their services. With all the necessary details covered, you should have confidence that this DJ is going to provide the music for you to bring the house down to. Now can you dig that?
