How to Choose the Best DJ for Your Wedding

A big Indian wedding requires; the right food, amazing decoration, great hosts and of course, rocking music. The DJ is a key factor to consider during wedding planning  as it probably has the greatest impact on how your guests remember your big day. The DJ has to make sure that it gets along with the music taste of everyone else in the room, holds up everyone’s enjoyment in the event and ultimately ensures that everyone has a great time. There are various things that have to be kept in mind while selecting the best suitable DJ for your wedding day.

Music selection

The music taste of a DJ is always great but this not enough, it is important for the DJ to play the music according to the guest’s demands and taste. He or she should avoid sticking to their own tracks and ignoring everybody else’s demands. People enjoy themselves when they feel  a part of the event. Music selection should compliment the theme, the line up of events and everybody’s dance performance. Select a DJ that has all kinds of music kept in hand so that it is not difficult to switch the music when necessary.

Time utilization

Often you may come across DJs who tend to take a lot of time, so be sure to select the right one for you. Make it a clear point in the beginning that they should install all of their equipment and everything required within the minimum time slot, so that there is enough room for enjoyment and nobody complains about the lack of music later on. A list of songs should be agreed upon to ensure there is no delay when the DJ is playing.

Sound system

There is no point in getting a DJ and music if the sound system is not the ideal one. Make it one of your prioritise on your check  list to ensure that the sound system owned by the DJ does not fall short and is very much suitable to the particular place where the event is going to be held. It may be an open space, so there should be a good surround sound, alternatively, if the event is in a closed hall, then the sound should be modified accordingly. Some DJs overlook this element but it is important to make it sure that there is clear sound ‘music’ instead of ‘noise’.

Lights and stage

There is huge role played by the light and stage area apart from sound. Have a prior agreement with the DJ if they are going to arrange the lights and stage so that there is no need to hire another agency for the same. If they do provide the service, discuss with them about how you want it to look like, how is the stage going to be put up and how is the lightning going to look like.


All experience counts, regardless of wether it is good or bad! If the DJ has some work experience prior to your event, they will be able to connect more with the guests and can definitely do a  better job.

Lastly, do not forget to interview each one of them personally so that you are satisfied with your final choice and you will come to know he or she has the right taste of the music that matches up to your expectations. This way you can discuss the music list and time limit and charges as well. As the DJ is permitted to be played up to a certain time limit in some areas, you will be able to figure out how you are going to end up with a party that ensure everyone enjoys them self to the fullest!
