Balancing Ballads & Beats

You've found your venue, and chosen a date.

Now it's time to create the perfect atmosphere for the wedding of your dreams!

The DJ is one of the most important aspects of an amazing event, and having an experienced DJ to keep the timeline flowing smoothly is one of Epic's specialties.

We've selected the top five items to consider when choosing a DJ for your wedding.

1 - Location. Location. Location!

You've chosen and booked the perfect venue, now what?

When booking your DJ, be sure to let them know exactly where and when you will need them.

Is the wedding, or event, going to be located in a barn, winery, or other outside venue?

Will there be a cocktail hour?

Will everything be located within one space, or will it be one area of the venue for ceremony, and another for reception?

Is everything located at the same venue, or is there a ceremony chapel for example, and a reception hall a few miles away?

What is the rain plan?

Make sure your DJ knows ahead of time if there will be more than one location, or if any of the events will be located at different sites. Many DJs charge additional for more than one setup, or traveling between locations on the date of the event.

Review your venue contract for any entertainment stipulations, then review the floor plan to determine where your DJ will be set up.

Be sure your DJ has adequate set-ups in every location to provide sound for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

2 - Timing

How many hours will your need for your DJ to be there? Make sure you allot time pre-ceremony for seating, and check with the venue contract for the exact "load-out" time for all vendors to be off property.
