When it comes to talking about Vancouver Wedding DJ, they are lots of things to plan. So isn’t surprising that one or ten or even more wedding details might be overlooked said Djing.ca. Sadly, all the plans are falling through the cracks!

A wedding, whether big or small can be definitely overwhelming, especially when juggling a full-time job. “Planning a wedding is essentially need more time and preparation. The couples are so many things have to manage, so it’s not hard to believe that they’re a thousand things  gets overlooked.”

Here are the top 10 that Djing.ca Vancouver Wedding DJ most overlooked in a wedding day.

1. Allergies & food preferences – Some guests may have severe food allergies and may need a special menu in order to eat. Make sure you consult with your guests on their diet & your food provider to ensure there is no cross contamination.

2. An alcohol license – Ensure that your venue has an alcohol license. If not, most family events take 7-14 days to be approved and cost $25 for private functions in B.C.

3. The Wi-Fi network & password printed – Have you ever been to an event and NOT been able to connect to Wi-Fi? Not because of internet issues, but because you didn’t know the credentials. It’s frustrating!

Don’t do that to you, attendees. You may be familiar with the Wi-Fi situation, but they aren’t. Make it easy for them by printing and/or featuring the credentials somewhere. In order for your DJ to take requests during the event, they must have access to the Wi-Fi as well!

4. Bringing the correct cables – If you plan on having a slideshow or presentation, make sure to have all the proper adapter, cables & make sure you’re not relying on outdated technology.

5.Printing a day-of-event breakdown – Having a day-of details schedule will ensure a smooth event, both in front of and behind the scenes. For example, your schedule might be something like this:

The most overlooked details on vancouver wedding dj

7:00 am: AV team arrives and begins setup
7:15 am: Stage, sound, light, and set test
7:30am: Tables
8:00 am: Attendees begin arriving

9:45 am: Buffet snacks set out
10:00 am: Break
10:20 am: Speakers in breakout rooms

The above schedule can be even more detailed and should give you a clear idea of the day-of breakdown, which will help ensure a smooth show. Always include extra time as things usually take longer than you expect! Don’t forget to share this breakdown with all vendors, speakers, staff, and volunteers it affects.

6. Knowing when the sun will set’ – Sunset is golden for photographs and it might be a time your wedding photographer would like to pull you outside for some magically lit photos. If you know what time the sun will be setting, you can make sure you’ll be available rather than say, cutting the cake.

7. Being too vague with your vendors – Make sure that you communicate your expectations with your vendors, and when you can, always try your vendors, and when you can, always try to meet them in person. Make sure to check in with them at least a week prior to your event.

8. Forgetting venue capacity – No matter what event you’re planning, make sure that the space is not too large or too small for your party!

9. Not having miscellaneous supplies on hand – It’s so easy to get caught up in the items we know we need (name tags, pamphlets, computer chargers, etc.) that we often forget the items we might need – tape, scissors, staplers, pens, notepad, and a first aid kit, It seems so obvious, but when you’re running around with less than 24 hours until your event, have a list labeled “Misc. Supplies”. As you think of items you might need, jot them down. Then, a couple of days before your event, revisit that list to make sure there aren’t any glaring holes.

10. Having a dolly or hand truck for moving – While not exactly glamorous, having a dolly or a hand truck when you need to move heavy items will feel like a back sparing lifesaver. You can rent them from U-Haul or buy from any home improvement or office supply store. You’ll be glad you remembered!

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
