More About Checking Reviews

Always remember when looking for a Wedding DJ always check references. And when I say references I mean past clients the vendor has actually worked for that you can contact by phone or email. Just reading a review is not enough. Reviews can be altered. Especially when it comes to hiring a Wedding DJ or any other wedding vendor. We all know that when someone provides you with good service you do not mind giving them a good reference. The fact is a past client has nothing to lose or gain by providing you this information. The Wedding DJ or other wedding vendor has everything to gain. It is too late to make changes the day of your wedding when you find out this guy is not providing the service he promised you. Do you know that a vendor that is advertising with The Knot can actually send his mother, friend, etc a link to allow them to fill out a review for them. The problem is you can not verify if the reviews on The Knot have been fabricated or not. I am not saying that vendors are doing this but it is possible to do. We advertise on The Knot and can vouch for our reviews but I cannot prove this to you either. Therefore I direct clients to our past client survey page where you will find not just a few but hundreds for you to choose from and actually contact. Always remember make every effort to contact numerous past clients if possible. A smart Bride & Groom do their homework before hiring a Wedding DJ or any other wedding vendor.

Reviewing A Wedding DJ Video versus Checking Past Client Referrals

We had a great time this past weekend meeting with all of the prospective Bride & Grooms not only getting married this year but 2013 also. Since this time I have had some interesting comments or questions from prospective clients that I would like to share with you that I hope you will find helpful when searching for your wedding DJ. I would have to say the funniest question that was asked by numerous people was are you a fun DJ service. And I have to laugh about that due to the fact that I can assure you that any DJ vendor at that bridal show or any bridal show for that matter is going to answer that question as YES! I can guarantee that none of them are going to say “No we are not”. They are there to book shows and are going to tell you what you want to hear whether honest or not. Just the other day I had a lady call me and ask if I had a wedding video for her to review also. We actually do have some of these as well as videos to give a visual understanding of what our uplighting or premier dance lighting consist of but, keep in mind the wedding video the DJ is displaying to you is going to be edited to sell. If there are any bad details trust me you will not find them in that video. If you did you probably would decide against booking with that DJ service for sure and therefore they are not going to allow you to see that part of their business. This is why I am a huge supporter of checking with numerous past clients that paticular DJ service has conducted a wedding ceremony as well as reception for. These past clients have nothing to lose and nothing to gain by being honest with you but the DJ service you are looking to hire has everything to gain. When problems arise concerning your DJ service the day of your wedding it is to late at that time. You cannot simply contact another wedding DJ to come in a fix the problem and this is a moment in time that you can never get back therefore you want it to be perfect. I love a bride or groom that contacts me and is more concerned about what we can provide and how we conduct our business when it comes to a wedding reception. Price should not be your only concern because contrary to some folks opinions a DJ can make or break your wedding. It is ok to compare prices but also take into account everything else that DJ service is providing for you then you can make an educated decision in hiring a DJ. Well I have rambled on enough for now so I will stop but check back periodically for more helpful tools or tips when searching for a wedding DJ!
