10 Top Questions to Ask a Wedding DJ Before Hiring Them


Wedding DJ

You’re getting married!

Planning a wedding is an exciting experience, but between choosing the venue, food, and attire, it can also be a stressful one.

Hiring your wedding DJ shouldn’t add to the stress. Check out these ten questions to ask when you’re getting a wedding DJ.

1. Do You Customize Playlists for Couples?

Choose a DJ that can customize a playlist just for you. You want the music selection to show off your personality and style.

2. How Do You Get the Crowd Excited?

You want a DJ that can read a crowd and get them excited to dance. Ask potential hires how they interact with the wedding goers to ensure everyone has a great time.

3. How Much Experience Do You Have?

The best way to hire a wedding DJ is to choose from the top DJs with a high level of experience. You should ask how long they’ve been a wedding DJ and how many weddings they’ve worked.

4. Can I Have References?

Along with finding out a potential DJ’s experience, you will also want references. You should be able to obtain reviews and references from past clients. DJs can provide videos of past jobs so you can hear how they perform.

5. Can We Submit a “Do Not Play” List?

One of the must-ask wedding DJ questions is whether or not you can submit a “do not play” list. Are there songs played at weddings that you absolutely don’t want playing at yours? Having a list can prevent your uncle from requesting the “Cha Cha Slide” if you don’t want it played.

6. What Equipment Do You Use?

You should know what equipment the DJ plans to use. You want to ensure that your venue can accommodate all of the DJ’s equipment.

7. Have You Played at Our Venue Before?

Ask any potential DJ if they’ve played your venue. If not, ask if they’re willing to visit to ensure they can play the location.

8. What’s Your Rate?

When you’re wondering how to hire a wedding DJ, know your budget and their rate. How many hours are included in this rate? If you love the DJ, but the rate is higher than you like, consider negotiating or find a way to boost your budget.

9. What Is Your Refund/Cancellation Policy?

An important inquiry to make is regarding the refund or cancellation policy. If you have to cancel the wedding, will you lose your deposit? Is there a window to cancel?

10. Do You Have Liability Insurance?

This may not be one of the obvious questions, but you will want to know if the DJ has liability insurance. This will cover any equipment damage or personal injury to the DJ.
