3 “Next Steps” into Planning Your Wedding After You Book a DJ…

Hello all! Kathryn from Beautifully Bloomed here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa!

I wanted to chat real quick about you DJ. After you book your DJ… what’s next? Well, here are 3 things you can do after you book your dj!

  1. Follow them on socials. I put this at the top, because if you are paying for someone to be entertaining…. I personally believe that they should be entertaining on their socials. I mean if a photographer did not share photos… or a florist did not post photos about flowers, would you assume that they have credibility? IDK… I would. So follow them on their social medias.
  2. Start rounding up your favorite songs. You might not remember all of your favorite songs during your initial meeting, but when you book a dj, you will have time to find songs from time of book until your wedding day. If a song comes up on the radio or Spotify, save it so when you meet with your DJ again, you will have a list to work off of.
  3. Let them do their job. Okay… so you should be picking out your favorite songs, but also recognize that your DJ is the party starter. If you found the right DJ, they should be entertaining without you forcing it. Let them be the professional. You are paying them!

Again, there are other next steps… but these are a few to think about.

Do you have any other questions? Let me know!
