Planning a wedding is no small task, and planning the right music is essential to creating the atmosphere & experience you want for yourself and your guests.


Balancing price, quality, experience, availability and more can be difficult. That’s why we’ve put together a list of questions to ask potential Wedding DJ’s, live or not, to make sure you’re getting the most suitable musical entertainment for your special day!


Some of the questions we would recommend asking before hiring a wedding DJ or music include:

The DJ

Are you available on the date of my wedding?

What sets you apart from other wedding DJ’s?

What is your experience as a wedding DJ?

Will you be the DJ personally playing at our wedding? (If not, who should we expect to see on the day?)

Do you perform at multiple events per day?

Are you able to provide me with any references from previous couples you have performed for?

The Music

Do you have a playlist of your music or a video from a prior wedding where you performed?

How extensive is your music library or song list? What genres can you cover?

Do you take requests from our guests?

Can we provide a ‘Do Not Play’ list?

Will you take requests from our guests?

The Price

What is your rate?

Do you require a deposit? If so, when is it due?

How far in advance do I need to book for my wedding?

Are there any additional fees related to my booking? Like travel expenses or charges for special music requests?

What is your refund/cancellation policy?

What information do you need from me before the wedding day?


Now, this list is by no means everything you need to ask your wedding DJ prior to booking, as the list would be endless. However, we hope that these questions help to guide your music planning and help you to find the most suitable DJ for your wedding.
