8 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a DJ? | COMPLETE weddings + events Kansas City

Congratulations, you are now engaged! By now you already picked out your perfect venue and need to start planning out the wedding reception of your dreams. First, you and your fiancé may want to sit down and prioritize what is most important to you when it comes to your reception.  Is it the décor  or the overall ambiance of the room? Most couples don’t realize that the ambiance is affected by many things from your linens, flowers and lighting to your deejay.  A couple of things you need to ask yourself is, “what type of vibe am I going for at my wedding reception? ” and “what do I want my guests to say when they think about my wedding reception?” These questions will help you start to get on the right track to finding the vendors that will be the best fit for your vision.


Now that you have decided what type of reception you are looking for and what is most important to you, it is time to start scouting out wedding vendors! Looking back to when I got married, a mere 4 years ago, I wish I would have realized that I should have made hiring a DJ a bigger priority for my wedding. I waited only a month and a half before I booked my DJ and did not have many choices to choose from because everyone was sold out! When I was shopping around I only knew one question to ask….how much? Making a decision solely on price would be a HUGE mistake.


The national average of money spent on a wedding according to the knot is $35,329 and $26,133 in the Kansas City Area. How much of your budget should go towards a DJ/ Entertainment? In the Kansas City area, brides spend on average $1,033 on entertainment according to costofwedding.com.  This entertainment budget includes:  instrumentalists for your ceremony or cocktail hour and bands and deejays for the reception, not fire-breathing dancers….bummer huh? Budget is important,  but you need to ask the correct questions to make sure that you are comparing “Apples to Apples.”

Here are some great questions to ask your potential DJ:

  • How many hours of playing time will be provided?
  • Will deejaying the ceremony be an additional cost?
  • Is an Emcee included?
  • Will you bring any type of lighting?
  • Do you have a wireless microphone we can use for the toasts?
  • Do you have a backup plan in case your equipment fails or you are unable to attend the event?
  • Can I meet with you before the wedding?
  • Do you charge a travel fee?
