Wedding Day Music Questions (Answered)

Once your entertainment is booked, hopefully with us there is still a good deal of planning on your end and on ours. The time span of the planning process varies depending on when your wedding date is, but most couples have a few months to get the music part of their planning together. Here are some of the frequent questions we get about the wedding music at your wedding, answered.  

Keep in mind if you hire us as your DJ, we try to make the pre-wedding prep wedding easy and stress free with our client portal. Our client portal allows you access to our music library and create playlists for your wedding and tell us all the special songs for your formalities.

Where do I get song ideas?
You are able to work on your music request lists until two weeks before you are wedding. While these tools are optional, we highly encourage you to take advantage of them. Fill in what comes easily to you which might be the songs you do not want to be played at your wedding versus the songs you do want to hear.  As far as where to get your ideas, listening to the radio, ask guests coming to the wedding what they will dance to, our song lists, the internet.

What happens if a song I want is not in your song library?
Yes! It is hard to have every song ever made so it happens that a song you want may not appear on our list. If that happens, let us know the song and we will obtain it if it is available for us to purchase. If it is your friend’s high school band that never made it big, do not sweat it if you have the file on your computer or a CD of the song, we will add it to our database!

What if my wedding timeline changes?
Things will change do not sweat it! If you need us to play longer than what our original contract says there may be an additional cost.  But if the times of changed all together just let us know and we can typically accommodate.

What if I need more sound or time?
This is common for weddings that have multiple spaces, say your ceremony is outside on the lawn, then the cocktail hour on a patio, then the reception inside, you will need another small sound system for outside to make sure your wedding runs smoothly. We already discussed your needs when you booked but as we mentioned things change. If you plan to extend the time of your wedding, we can also stay longer too.  

What if I want the photo booth or lighting and my wedding is soon?
As long as we have that service available and can accommodate, we can certainly add it on. Last year was the year of couples adding a on photo booth to their wedding.
Here is why you should have a photo booth at your wedding.
