Gary Huggan from Equinox-Storm shares his expert advice to help you find the perfect the perfect entertainer when there's so many on the market. With a few simple steps, you will be able to select the supplier who's ideal for your wedding day.
We'd recommend that couples select a wedding DJ that can demonstrate that they'll take your day seriously. There are many part- time DJ's and start-ups out there that may not have the experience or investment in professional equipment to pull off your event. Take time to review their social media or website and arrange a meeting with them so you can feel reassured.
Equinox-Storm offers a free studio visit where you'll meet your DJ, view a picture portfolio, discuss options and experience a live sound and light demonstration so that you leave feeling confident that your wedding reception is in capable hands. It's important to receive a contract detailing what you've booked, make sure that your supplier has Public Liability Insurance and their equipment is PAT tested – these will be requirements of your wedding venue.
Never just book the cheapest option, like any other industry, the cost of a DJ varies and so does the service, delivery and ability to perform. If you were having a small gathering for a regular party you may go for a cheap to a medium option, but for your wedding day, you should consider a premium service.
As a DJ company, we've seen a growing trend in couples wanting to decorate their venues to improve the look and atmosphere for their big day. Our wall drapes and twinkle backdrops help to achieve this and are extremely cost-effective and when coupled with our Mood Lighting system; Venue Alive can transform a venue and wedding reception. By combining the DJ and décor services you can save money.
