#1: CONTRACTING A DJ COMPANY BASED ON PRICE ALONE.
This is a huge mistake to avoid when planning your dream wedding. The musical entertainment is one of the most important elements in the success (or failure) of the “party” portion of your wedding reception. Try to keep in mind the IMPORTANCE level of your wedding and how much you want your wedding to be an awesome event! Set a realistic budget ahead of time.
An exceptional wedding entertainer will work with you ahead of time so that all of the elements are seamless and polished. The DJ should satisfy you and your guests and he/she should leave you with great memories of your wedding celebration. Base your decision to hire an individual or company on what features and services they offer you, not on price alone. The "best price" is not always the "best value." Just because someone has a business card with the words "Professional DJ" on it does not mean much. Would you choose a doctor for an important surgery based on which one is cheapest? Our prices are based on the professionalism, experience, talent, service and expertise of our entertainers and the cost of doing business using commercial equipment and keeping our music library and skills current. Our pricing is very competitive but our personal commitment to serving our clients is above average. We believe our pricing reflects our experience and the top notch level of service you will receive when you book our firm.
#2: WHO WILL BE THE ACTUAL DJ ENTERTAINER AT MY EVENT?
This is very controversial subject, but one that should be addressed early on in your search for the perfect DJ entertainer, one that fits the style and over mood you want for your wedding. Many large dj companies will promise a certain DJ for your event but they can’t guarantee it. The reason is pretty simple; these large companies have a very fast employee turnaround time. Will that person you met with still be employed by them when your event comes? Don’t just take our word for it, do you homework. Read reviews online on websites like WEDDINGWIRE.COM & THEKNOT.COM Don’t take any chances, we are a small family owned business, we have been making wedding day dreams come true for couples on Long Island for OVER 25 years. We stake our companies’ reputation at every party we are hired for. The DJ/Event Host you meet with is the same person that plans your event right along with you and performs at you affair as well. From the first phone call right up to the last dance. We are a company large enough to serve all your wedding reception needs, yet small enough to care. With us you are the ONLY wedding on your date!
