Why Do We Need to Meet with a Wedding DJ?

Planning a wedding is an exciting and joyous time, filled with endless possibilities and dreams of a perfect day. So why should you take the time to meet with your wedding DJ before booking them? Well, let’s look at it this way: if you don’t meet with your DJ, you may end up with a generic, “cookie-cutter” wedding. They won’t know anything about your day or how you envision your special day to be. How can they, if they’ve never met you?

That’s why I always make it a point to meet, or at least Zoom/Skype/FaceTime video chat, with the couples I work with. I understand that it may seem like a hassle, but it’s the only way I can truly grasp what’s important to you and how we can make a difference together on your wedding day.

During our informal meeting, whether it’s a video chat via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime, I take the time to share photos and videos that may help and inspire you. Before our meeting, I’ll send you a short questionnaire to guide your thoughts on specific areas. This way, we can dive deep into your preferences, discuss your favourite music, and plan for the ceremony, wedding breakfast, and evening party. I’ll also provide guidance based on my experience from previous weddings, ensuring that the music selection resonates with your guests.

Don’t worry if you’re not able to meet in person. I’ve worked with couples from all over the world, and we can always schedule virtual meetings to accommodate your needs. From video calls to in-person meetups during your trips back to the UK, I’m committed to making the planning process as seamless as possible.

But why go through all this effort? Because your wedding day should be a celebration unique to you and your partner. It’s not about outdoing anyone else or throwing money at it. It’s about embracing your personalities and likes and making your day unforgettable. And I’m here to guide you on that journey.

Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what some of my previous clients had to say about meeting up:

We booked Alan because we could tell from the first call that his service was totally different to what anyone else was offering.

After our initial meeting with Alan, we were beyond excited to have him as our Master of Ceremonies/DJ. We fell in love with how extremely creative and bespoke his services were, but even then we could not have prepared ourselves for how much impact his services added to our wedding, how much it elevated each and every cherished moment.

From the beginning of the process, Alan has been extremely easy to work with and provided amazing advice and guidance that have clearly been developed over many years within the industry.

I am committed to understanding your requirements for your big day and ensuring that everything runs exactly as you envision. We can discuss everything you want and don’t want by meeting in advance, leaving you confident that everything will run smoothly on the day.

But, we don’t have just one pre-booking meeting, we also have as many meetings as needed to plan your wedding day. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience from hundreds of weddings over the years and I’m always on hand to help and advise wherever possible.

I also have a fantastic online planning system to keep all of the details in one place so we can see at a glance what’s planned for when and this can be easily updated at any point.

So, let’s arrange a meeting, discuss your plans, and see if I’m the right wedding DJ for you. After all, we won’t know until we meet.

I write these Blog posts to help you plan an amazing wedding and to give a few ideas on how to achieve that. Please contact me to discuss your wedding and find out why I guarantee the success of every party I am booked for.
