What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Number 1 tip!…..Always arrange a consultation with your DJ, preferably meet in person. Outline the general timings for the day, do you have a toast master? if not, would you like your DJ to make the various announcements throughout the day? have you thought about breakfast music, ask your DJ to make sure the guest book is signed? discuss the cutting of the cake, the first dance, music preferences? Have you thought about the last song? This is more important than you think, what if the DJ chooses something you don’t like? Setup times for the DJ is important too, for example, can they setup in the morning to avoid any delays later in the day if things are running behind? if they can't, what is the turnaround time for the room? Does your venue require the DJ to present PAT test and public liability insurance? Is your DJ’s setup photograph friendly? There’s so many things to discuss and I’ve only mentioned a few here to highlight the importance of meeting your DJ so they know exactly how the day will run and what is expected from them to help make your day run perfect
