Even though a DJ’s job might look easy, that smooth performance requires a certain amount of advance preparation. My rates include two face-to-face planning meetings where we’ll meet to discuss the details of your event. That way, when your wedding day arrives, I can do my part to help make sure everything happens just as you’ve envisioned.
The first meeting typically takes place as early as possible, even if your wedding day is several months or more than a year away. Even if you’re not yet 100% sure if you want to book me yet, this first meeting is offered as a “no-obligation freebie” where you can ask questions and get to know me a little more before you make any decisions.
Should you choose to book me during that meeting, I’ll have a contract ready and I’ll be prepared to accept your deposit with check, major credit card or money order. However, I also realize many couples prefer to think about it for a bit, so there’s no expectation or pressure to make a decision at the meeting. Conversely, I’ve had a number of couples who didn’t have time to set up a meeting immediately, but they wanted to “lock in” their date before someone else did — so if you want to book first and meet later, that’s also an option.
For couples who are planning their weddings from afar, I offer “virtual” meetings via Skype videoconference or a phone call, per your preference.
Since the first meeting is usually held quite a long time before your wedding, it’s really more of an “introductory” meeting than a decision-making meeting. We’ll run through a basic overview of the topics listed below, but most couples don’t have all their details finalized this early.
That’s why we have a second meeting — much closer to your wedding date. This is where we should be able to finalize everything, or at least a great majority of the details. Anything still not wrapped-up by this point can be handled through email or phone calls.
These meetings are meant to help making the process easier for you, but even between the meetings, we can still discuss song selections and other details via email or telephone at your convenience. Even after decisions are made, you can still change things around, no problem!
