What Things You Includes On Your Checklist | Vancouver Wedding DJ

For couples, getting married will perhaps be the biggest day! A long road of waiting through ups and down finally lead to one special moment. To make it to that point though there is an endless list of tasks that must be completed and one of those is hiring a Vancouver Wedding DJ.

A Vancouver Wedding DJ mixer and checklist

Some of the people first time experience hiring a Vancouver DJ either for a wedding, Christmas party, corporate party, and other events are unsure how the process works. Maybe they have some couples of questions in their mind like “What does the DJ actually do?” or “What can do the DJ for motivation the crowd if nobody is dancing?”

So, it is very important to create a list of details on how you hiring a DJ. DJing.ca, our team specializes in providing unique and memorable experiences.  We are more than willing to help you to figure out what do you need to include details on hiring a perfect Wedding DJ on your checklist, for initial steps to hire a perfect Vancouver Wedding DJ for your big day.

Well, here is 10 tips to get you started on your way to hiring the perfect Vancouver Wedding DJ!

You should set your own objective 

Of course, you will want a wedding DJ experience but I recommend hiring a DJ who has played all kinds of different events. This way the DJ will be far more adaptable to any request you may have. At DJing.ca our DJs have played weddings private parties, corporate parties, nightclubs, and many more amazing events.

Should I worry about equipment?  

All DJs and DJ companies in Vancouver and really any city should be bringing their own equipment to your wedding. You shouldn’t rely on your own equipment or the venue’s equipment because the DJ may show up and find out it’s not compatible with their controller. What are the consequences of this? You may have no music on your big day.   

Should I tell the DJ what to play? 

The answer is absolute! You should create your own playlist as well as a list of your preferred genres. This way the DJ can play all your must-play songs during your wedding and extrapolate based on your preferred genres to spice up the night!

Will the DJ accommodate specific demographics? 

Any good DJ will do this in the blink of an eye. Just make sure you’ve added this request in the list mentioned above and the will DJ do their thing. Remember, the DJ is there to make your big day special so your wish is their command.

Check the size of the DJ company 

If you’re hiring a DJ you should ask how big their team is. Not that there is anything wrong with the one-man show DJ but you will find that a larger company will give you more production options as well as more DJs to choose from. This will increase the likelihood that they can cater to your every need.

Will the DJ also MC 

A lot of DJs are also great MCs. These two skills complement each other very nicely. That being said some DJs prefer not to MC. So, make sure you ask the DJ if this is something they can do. Typically, they will say yes but having them MC is often an extra charge.

How will my big day be organized? 

For most DJs and Vancouver DJ companies, the price of setting up and taking down is included. On the day itself, you should have your DJ show up two hours early. By doing this you’re taking into account time for setup, traffic, parking, and any potential glitches along the way so that you have the music up and running exactly when you want.

Can I get information on the DJ before hiring? 

Every single DJ……. Ok, let me rephrase that. Every single DJ that you should consider will have social media accounts that you can dive into to check if this is someone you want to hire. Also, some DJ companies will have reviews for all their DJs on their website. You may even be ae to meet them in person before your wedding if you so choose.


How long should I wait to hear from a DJ? 

The best way to answer this is short and sweet. These people and these companies are businesses. How long would you wait to hear back from any given professional? The same standards should be held for DJs as well.

How do I make my final choice? 

It often helps to talk to these DJs and DJ companies on the phone or in-person before hiring. Take into account that you’re purchasing a service and a large part of customer service is human interaction. So, making sure that the DJ you’re hiring is someone you trust and feel will add the right vibe to your wedding is absolutely crucial.

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.
