Key dates for Christmas season and weekends in wedding
season (May through September) tend to book-up early. It’s a good policy
to lock down your key services (venue, entertainment, caterer, florist, photographer,
cake, church etc.) at least 6 months in advance if possible. Some premium
venues like the Brock House in Point Grey or the Minoru Chapel in Richmond
book-up well over a year in advance! An added benefit of early bookings is
that many service providers offer “early booking incentives” which
can shave considerable dollars off of your wedding costs.
I’ve been to weddings
in the past where the DJ seemed only interested in playing “his own music”
and would not take requests. Is this normal?
Some DJ’s build their reputation around playing
specific types of music (rave dj’s, club dj’s etc.) and can be
quite inflexible about playing requests. Be sure to ask your prospective dj
service about their policy on playing client requests. Our mandate is to play
as many of the guest’s requests as possible in a timely manner and with
the emphasis on keeping the dance floor full.
What happens if a song
clears the dance floor? Will the DJ allow the song to continue, or fade into
a new selection?
Our dj’s are trained to blend the music into a different
style or rhythm as quickly as possible if the dance floor has cleared. Usually
the best option is to switch to a popular slow-dance, which will generally
bring the dancers right back. By far the most common customer comment from
our clients is “Your DJ kept the dance floor full all night long!…thanks
for a wonderful time!”
How can I be sure that the
DJ will arrive on time?
We’ve built our huge referring client base on quality
customer service, which starts with being meticulously prompt. Early equipment
pick-up (usually two hours before contracted guest arrival) is standard on
all events which ensures that the DJ will have the appropriate music playing
(according to your specifications) well in advance of guest arrival. This
also means that the sound levels and microphones (if required) are already
set at appropriate levels so as to provide a smooth, seamless service from
start to finish.
We are one of the most well respected Mobile DJ companies
in the Vancouver area for a reason; we use top notch professional equipment
with backup gear in the event of technical difficulties.
