FAQs about hiring Wedding Djs in Bedford

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Do I need a DJ for my wedding?

Whether you need a DJ, over say, playing music from your phone or laptop depends on factors such as your budget, wedding size, and atmosphere you want to create. However, DJs are popular for weddings for good reasons - they’re versatile, engaged musicians who are well-versed in adapting their sets for different parts of a wedding. Pros of hiring a DJ: - A DJ can help you set the tone for your wedding and keep the party going all night long. They can play a variety of music genres to appeal to all your guests, and they can also create custom playlists for different parts of the reception, such as cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. - A DJ can also provide emcee services, such as announcing the bridal party, introducing the cake cutting, and making speeches. This can take a lot of stress off of you and your wedding party, and it can also help to keep the reception running smoothly. - A DJ can bring their own equipment, which can save you the hassle of setting up and taking down speakers, turntables, and other sound equipment. They can also help you with lighting and other décor effects. Cons of playing music from a phone or laptop: - Unless you or someone you know is well-versed in managing sound systems and playlists, you might run into technical difficulties such as sound quality and unexpected glitches. - A professional DJ comes with their own equipment and knows how to set up and manage it effectively. If you're using your own device, you'll need to consider sound system requirements, ensure compatibility with the venue, and handle setup and breakdown yourself. - If you're using a personal device, there's a risk of interruptions, such as phone calls, notifications, or technical issues like the device going to sleep. This can disrupt the flow of the music during crucial moments.

Should I hire a DJ or a band for my wedding?

Choosing between a DJ and a live band for your wedding depends on your preferences, budget, and the atmosphere you want to create. Hire a wedding DJ if you'd prefer: 1. Variety of Music: DJs can play a wide and large selection of music, accommodating diverse musical tastes and genres. 2. Budget: DJs are often more budget-friendly than live bands, making them a cost-effective choice. 3. Space: If your venue has limited space, a DJ requires less setup room compared to a live band. Hire a live band if you'd prefer: 1. Live Experience: Live bands bring a unique energy and authenticity to your wedding, creating a lively atmosphere that engages your guests. 2. Personalisation: Bands can tailor their performance, adapting to your musical preferences and even accommodating special song requests. 3. Ambience: If you want a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere, nothing beats live music. Ultimately, the choice depends on your vision for the wedding and your budget. Both options can provide excellent entertainment; it's about selecting the one that aligns best with your desired atmosphere and the overall theme of your celebration. If unsure, speak to one of our experts at Encore who can help you choose the right musician for your event.

How long does a DJ play at a wedding?

The typical length of time a DJ plays at a wedding is 4-5 hours but sets can be shorter or longer depending on your needs. However, this can vary depending on your preferences and the length of the wedding reception. Some couples may opt for a shorter DJ set, while others may want the DJ to play for the entire reception. Here is a breakdown of how long a DJ typically plays at different parts of a wedding: - Cocktail hour: 1-2 hrs - Dinner: 2-3 hrs - Dancing: 4-5 hrs Of course, these are just estimates, and the actual length of time the DJ plays will vary depending on the specific wedding. For example, if you have a lot of dinner speeches, the DJ may play for less time during dinner. Conversely, if you want to have a lot of dancing, the DJ may play for a longer period. Ultimately, the decision of how long to have the DJ play is up to you. Just make sure to discuss your preferences with the DJ and make sure everyone is on the same page.

How to pick a wedding DJ?

The task of finding the right wedding DJ can seem overwhelming, but Encore will help you find the one that is perfect for you and your big day. You can search through our collection of 360 seasoned wedding DJs in the UK, filtering by region, price, theme, and availability. We also share videos of their performances as well as client reviews so that you may get a sense of their style and be confident in their professionalism. Once you've narrowed it down to a few DJs, you may directly enquire on the site and ask more detailed questions about their mixing style, an example of one of their typical DJ sets, and how they interact with the crowd. Or if you wish, you can also enquire with one of your experts who'll provide you a list of tailored recommendations for your special day.

What questions should I ask a wedding DJ?

Hiring the right wedding DJ is crucial for ensuring a smooth and enjoyable celebration. To help you make an informed decision, here are some important questions to ask a wedding DJ before hiring them: - How many years of experience do you have as a wedding DJ? - What genres of music do you specialise in? - Are you willing to take requests from our guests? - What do they typically wear to weddings? Can they dress according to your theme or preferences? - Are they comfortable making announcements and serving as an MC? - What equipment do they have and what do they need? At Encore, on each of our musicians' profiles, you can check their availability and look through their frequently asked questions section to see equipment requirements (if any, usually DJs bring all their own equipment), set-up times and more.

When do I book wedding dj?

In general, for wedding musicians, we recommend booking at least a year to a minimum of 9 months before. However, it’s always advisable to book a wedding DJ as soon as you can as the best DJs are usually scheduled months or even years ahead for peak season such as wedding season (May-October). It's important to note, however, that Encore handles last-minute reservations regularly, so if you have a planned event soon, get in touch with us.

Do you tip wedding DJ?

Tipping a wedding DJ is not expected but it is considered a nice gesture to show your appreciation for their services. If you are happy with the DJ's performance and feel that they went above and beyond to make your wedding a success, you can tip them anywhere from £50 to £100. If you are on a tight budget, you can tip them less, but make sure it is something that you can afford and that you feel comfortable with. You can give your tip to the DJ in person at the end of the reception, or you can send them a thank you card with a check enclosed. Here are some factors to consider when deciding whether or not to tip your wedding DJ and how much to tip them: The length of the reception: A longer reception will likely require more work from the DJ, so you may want to tip them more. The complexity of your music requests: If you have a lot of different music requests, the DJ will have to put in more effort to create a playlist that everyone will enjoy. The DJ's experience: A more experienced DJ will likely be more expensive, but they may also be able to provide a better service. Your budget: Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to tip your wedding DJ and how much to tip them is up to you. Tip what you feel comfortable with and what you feel is appropriate for the service they provided.

What does a wedding DJ do?

A wedding DJ will typically play during your reception to get the party started, however, some couples also hire a DJ to provide emotional background music during the ceremony. If you’d like, many wedding DJs also offer an MC service, where they can introduce the wedding party and make announcements. Some wedding DJs will also offer additional services, such as lighting, photo booths, karaoke machines, and monogram projections. You can find this information on their profiles but you can also one of our experts directly for tailored recommendations of wedding DJs who offer the additional services you’d like.

What makes a good wedding DJ?

A good wedding DJ should be charismatic, adaptable, and professional. As with all musicians, a good wedding DJ can read a room and curate a playlist that will get all the guests on their feet. Similarly, a DJ should be prepared and timely and have high-quality equipment suitable for the event’s size and acoustics.

Do you need a DJ for a small wedding?

A DJ can be a great choice for a small wedding because they don’t take up too much space, are one of the most affordable live music options, and keep the energy high. The other great benefit of DJs at smaller weddings is that they fill awkward silences in between the most important moments of the day. The less people, the less background chatter, and a DJ can help fill these gaps.

Can you tell wedding DJ what to play?

Absolutely. Wedding DJs are there to make your special day, even more special and our musicians will work with you to curate a playlist that you will enjoy from start to finish. Furthermore, unlike live musicians who have to learn and practice the music beforehand, DJs have a whole library of songs at their fingertips. However, you should send the majority of your requests beforehand to the DJ as he or she may find it difficult to locate lesser-known tracks on the night.

What equipment does a wedding DJ need?

DJs usually have their decks, a high-quality PA system, microphones, and disco lighting. A DJ's equipment quality determines how good their sound and experience will be - expensive DJs often invest in higher quality equipment, and their price reflects this. It is always a good idea to ask the DJ if they require additional equipment for their performance, since the venue may be able to provide additional sound and lighting to enhance the show.

What should a DJ wear to a wedding?

For a wedding, DJs usually dress in formal or semi-formal attire (think full suit or shirt and chinos). However, wedding DJs will usually try to align with the overall vibe of your special day so also discuss with the DJs first if you have something particular in mind that you’d like them to wear.
