Do I really need to get my DJ a tent for my outdoor wedding?

Do I really need to get my DJ a tent for my outdoor wedding?

The short answer is YES. I’ll explain and show you some examples of why a tent for your DJ should be No#1 on your list when planning an outdoor reception.

You never know what mother nature has in store for you and even if the day is sunny and warm, those unexpected showers are the ones that can cause havoc if not properly prepared for.

Before You Sign Your DJ Contract................

Before You Sign Your DJ Contract................

Before you sign your DJ contract and pay your deposit, be sure to know who exactly your wedding DJ & MC will be.

I know that sounds like a no brainer, but several companies sell you their DJ & MC packages without ever disclosing who your exact DJ & MC will be.  You may not find out until 5 days before your Florida Keys wedding which puts pressure on you to make sure they understand what you’re looking for and for the DJ to make sure he’s got everything correct and understands your musical tastes, not to mention the details of your grand introductions, spotlight dances, the timeline of your evening, and more important than anything, if your personalities click.

What am I actually paying for when I hire my Florida Keys Wedding DJ?

When you first book your wedding DJ whether it's here in the Florida Keys for your beach or destination wedding, or anywhere else you may be having your big event, your DJ will either give you some planning forms or an online planning page where you are asked to list some very important information such as who's in the wedding party, who's going to be announced in the Grand Introduction, what your first dance is, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance wedding party dance, and all of the other spotlight dances.

WHEN YOUR TEAM OF VENDORS CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE
