My partner and I have booked our venue and photographer, and are in the process of finding and booking a DJ. Our (awesome) venue has a list of preferred vendors, and although we're not required to book a vendor from the list, it's not like we already have a non-list DJ in mind. I went through the list of DJs, checking their websites and their reviews online, and one DJ really stuck out as a wonderful DJ.
We got in touch with him, and he's available on our wedding date. We're just not sure what to do next. While we're not planning on shopping around for a DJ, we'd like to ask him some questions to make sure that we want to book him.
What kinds of questions did you ask while you were looking for a DJ? Any red flags you'd suggest keeping an eye out for? Things you wish you had asked about?
More info about us: We're both '90s kids, so the music we grew up with (mostly '90s rock) isn't really great for weddings (either for cocktail hour, dinner, or dancing). Our tastes run very eclectic--we've got a lot of Regina Spektor, Cake, Goo Goo Dolls, OneRepublic, etc--and (again) not great for weddings. We're looking for a DJ who will be able to play wedding appropriate music that meshes well with our non-wedding tastes. We're not interested in having a DJ who'll talk a lot of the night and host games/give-aways, anything like that.
