Hi all! Long time reader, first time poster.
My fiance and I are currently looking for a DJ (we have a venue and photographer booked). I've scouted a few here on the Knot and checked out their prices and Yelp reviews (www.yelp.com
) but now we're stumped. How do you actually pick one DJ out of four or five who get stellar reviews? Should we go into a meeting with a DJ with a list of songs to make sure he has them? Do we take playlist suggestions from the DJ? I'm just not sure what really makes a great DJ. We're picky about music, but not in a "we need this list of songs played", mostly in a "we don't want this type of music played."
Thanks for any suggestions you all have!
