While planning your wedding, one of the questions you may ask yourself is how to select a wedding dj. If you aren’t familiar with wedding djs in the area, or you don’t have a referral from a friend, selecting one is tough. After all, the DJ gets the party started and keeps your guests dancing all night long. Even though I planned carefully, my husband and I had a horror story during the DJ-selecting process. Thankfully, we were able to fix it just in the nick of time. Read on to find out more…
How to Select a Wedding DJ
So, A and I attended a silent auction right after our engagement. Since we had no preference for our wedding dj (he or she just had to be awesome and professional), we entered a bid in the silent auction for wedding dj services at an amazing deal. Well, we won the silent auction prize and got an awesome, local DJ at a pretty price – or so we thought. We met with him at a local Starbucks to discuss the details, and the DJ (who shall remain nameless) was TERRIBLE. Not only was he unprofessional and rude, but through out entire meeting he continued to reference how we were “getting a deal” and spent the afternoon pitching us on additional services we did not need. He even insulted our choice of venue, saying the lighting was “terrible” (which is not even true!) It’s safe to say we knew he wasn’t the DJ for us (and we hope no one else has to deal with him in the future!) So, we canceled our contract, lost our deposit (sad – but so worth it), and selected a new DJ. Thankfully, the wedding dj we did pick – A-Team Productions – was amazing. Aaron was amazing and we were thrilled with our choice. The moral of the story? Select a DJ you are comfortable with, who will treat you with the quality and customer service you deserve – and respects your wishes!
So, now that you know how to select a wedding DJ, we’re sharing with you one awesome DJ service called Scratch Weddings.

Also, they cover all music genres, feature all looks and styles, and each DJ brings a guaranteed level of experience and quality. Scratch Weddings is the leading source of marquee DJs playing for the most prestigious global brands, lounges, clubs, music festivals, and weddings. They wrote the book on DJ’ing (as in, literally… they wrote a book called On The Record sold at Barnes and Noble) so you can be assured they are experts in the field.
We were happy to hear they offer a no-risk guarantee (insurance, a back-up DJ and a 72-hour money back guarantee) as well as personalized, tailored music specific for your wedding night. So, let the music planning begin – this company is happy to hear your requests.
