Questions to ask your DJ/MC




1) Who is going to by my MC?


The MC is the heart and soul of your event.  They are the ones who get the crowd out of their seat and onto the dance floor. You want to know who your MC is to make sure he knows what he is doing as well if you like his style. Some MC’s are too loud some are too pushy, you have to make sure that the person in charge knows your personal style and what you are looking for in a Wedding MC.




2) Who is going to be my DJ? 


A DJ plays a totally different role in your entertainment package then the MC does.  The DJ is the person that is going to actually play the music at your wedding.  He is the one that chooses if you are going to be dancing to Michael Jackson or Eminem.  You want to make sure that your DJ is an experienced wedding DJ, the reason for this is because just like any profession, there is an art to getting people out of their seat and staying on the dance floor. 


3) Can I request songs? 


This is your wedding day, so of course, you are going to want to have a few of your favorite songs played. That being said, you are hiring (or should be hiring) a professional entertainment company.  They are going to know what to do and how to do it better than anyone.  Giving them as much room to do their job is probably the best bet if you want them to operate at their most creative level.

4) Do I have to pay anything the day of the wedding? 


Some vendors want to be paid the day of the event, I have photographed hundreds of weddings throughout the years and I would try my best to avoid is dealing with money the day of a wedding.   There are so many moving parts that it is easy to forget who and what you have to pay.  I would suggest that you try to get all your payments out of the way prior to the wedding day, this way you are not stressed the day of. 


5) Do you offer an uplighting package? 


Uplighting plays a big part in not only the overall ambiance, but it also plays a huge role in how your reception photos look.  Without proper uplighting, the background is going to be extremely dark.  However, with the proper uplighting, the background can be fully saturated giving an incredible glow and life to your reception photos.
