Finding a DJ

Hey y’all!

Kara here. While planning a wedding, you start to notice that a lot of people love to give advice. One in particular I get a lot of is “People will remember the food you ate, the dress you wore, and how much fun they had.” (Anybody else get that one a lot?) While of course there are so many other aspects and details of your wedding that are important, this actually makes a lot of sense to me.

Thinking back to some of my favorite weddings I’ve attended in the past, few things come to mind—and one of them is the entertainment.

The DJ or band is the life of the party. It’s as simple as that. And depending on what you want for your wedding, you’ll have to choose what’s right for you. For Clinton and I, hiring a DJ makes the most sense.

So we decided to visit Lumen Events during their most recent open house. We didn’t know what to expect since it was our first time ever meeting a DJ. Overall, it was a great experience! We were welcomed with hospitality and a great show to top it off.

Here are a few things I learned throughout the process: 

  • Meet with them face-to-face
    This is a great way to see everything they’ve got to offer. With Lumen, you can check out their storefront and inventory. We were shown a multitude of examples from photos of past events, to possible DJ setups and up lighting in real life.
  • Ask about packages
    Want a DJ and a gobo light? Do they offer both together? Or how about an additional MC? Now is the time to ask about packages and prices.
  • Get to know all the other details
    This one is important! You’ll want to know if they take requests. Can you give them a playlist? Will they play only edited music? What’s their specialty? For instance, some DJs specialize in country music or Tejano. All of these questions can be easily forgotten but are so important!

 

Like everyone, we want our wedding to be fun, and with any of the local pros out there, I think they’ll have our guests dancing the night away.

 

Until next time,

The Local Bride
