Choosing a DJ

Wedding Guests Packing the Dance Floor


The month of January traditionally starts the new booking season for wedding vendors.  With the biggest bridal shows in WNY being held in the next few weeks, newly engaged couples will have plenty of opportunity to visit and talk to a variety of the best wedding professionals in the Buffalo/Niagara area.

Choosing your DJ will be just one of the many decisions that you will have to make.  What makes your DJ decision different, and a bit more difficult than your other vendors, is the fact that a DJ company provides an intangible service.  Wedding venues, caterers and photographers all provide a product that you can see, taste smell and touch.

A DJ provides an experience.  They are hired to MC your event, assist in entertaining your guests through their personality and song selection and keep the pace of reception flowing based on the timeline put together with their clients.

Even if you see a DJ at a wedding or event it may not be a great indication of the service they could provide at your event.  They most likely are playing songs and executing an agenda based on their clients’ wishes and what you see and hear may not be in line with what you envision for your reception.

This does not mean that DJ would not be a great fit for you.  Premier Sound has been asked to share our opinions and advice on what newly engaged couples should consider when hiring a DJ.  You can check out that information here.  Sure, we have our opinions, but I understand why people may be skeptical of a DJ giving advice to potential clients on hiring a DJ.

That is why I am sharing the flowing article with you!  Stacie Tamaki of The Flirty Blog wrote a post on this very topic.  She is not a DJ. She’s not from WNY and no, we don’t know her.  But a client shared this post with us because they thought it was so insightful during the the process of choosing their DJ.

We thought it would be a great help to the thousands of couples starting their planning process this month.  Before you make your final DJ decision we think it’s worth investing a little time reading Stacie’s thoughts on hiring a DJ.
