So you’re looking for a DJ for your wedding but you must first ask yourself, “Are You Paying For Just Music Or Paying For A Plan Too?” You have your dress picked out, the flowers are ordered and you’ve tasted your caterer’s finest offerings. Now all you need is music, right? Well… kind of. You need more than just music. You need a wedding entertainment specialist. Someone that can not only play music but can entertain your crowd, help organize your event from start to finish and a person that will take the time to work with you in planning a truly magical night!
Are You Paying For Just Music Or Paying For A Plan Too
One thing you should know or remember and apply to your picking process is that you’re not just paying for music the night of your event. You should pick someone that is going to take the time to sit down and work out a plan for your event. A plan that will fit your ideas and thoughts and fit them into a streamlined working order. We spend an average of 6-8 hours on every single event. Not including time of performance. We work out a plan and the details for our clients that are themed on the ideas of the bride and groom and with a little help and suggestions that can turn a good reception in to a grand reception!
If you’re now in the market for a DJ, we encourage you to go out and meet with the people you will be hiring to be in charge of your entire reception. That’s right, you’re not just hiring someone to play music. You are hiring someone that will be in charge of how your entire event runs. We’re sure you went to venues, looked at flowers, tasted food and even tasted cakes. Why would you not meet with the one person that is going to be running your reception or big event? The florist, caterer, and baker will not be there to emcee or make judgment calls on what happens at your reception. The DJ will.
We are saying all of this to help brides and grooms understand the importance of having good, professional entertainment. First, stay away from Craigslist. Would you buy your flowers from Craigslist? Of course not. So why look for one of the most important aspects of your day on there? It’s just got bad written all over it. You need a DJ that is competent, professional, experienced and that is easy to maintain an open line of communication with. If an entertainment company can’t even afford to put the time and effort into maintaining a professional website to attract customers how much effort are they going to put into your event?
Just remember this when deciding on your entertainment for your reception. Are you paying for music or are you investing in an organized, planned reception? We here at Kalifornia Entertainment love getting to know our clients on a personal level and understanding their vision for such an important day in their lives. Contact us to learn more or to speak with us about what you have planned and how we can turn that vision into a reality!
