HOT TOPIC Stellar wedmin advice from those in the know TIME TO PARTY We’re looking for a DJ for our upcoming wedding but are feeling overwhelmed by the amount of choice available. What should we do to help narrow down our decision? Looking for your wedding DJ is so much more than trying to find the cheapest deal. This is potentially the biggest day of your lives so you’ll want someone with experience, professionalism and a name you can trust. To narrow down the options it’s worth checking out their website or social media pages where you can find testimonials and be confident that your DJ will be reliable, helpful and keep the dancefloor full and guests entertained through thoughtful planning and preparation beforehand. This way, you may also notice they’ve won some prestigious awards, which is worth bearing in mind too as they’re often voted for by previous couples as well as by a rigorous judging panel. You should aim to contact your prospective DJ as soon as possible and they should respond in a prompt and timely manner. They should be interested in you right from the word go, finding out what you’d like. In fact, it would be worth arranging a telephone call, Zoom or face-toface appointment. You should expect to find them engaging, offering solutions to your questions, while putting forward suggestions to further enhance your big day. Here at Celebration Roadshow, we’ve just won a national award as best wedding DJs at the Wedding Industry Awards, so you can be confident that your wedding would be in safe hands with us!
