In the past couple of years, we have all learned how to not meet in person. Virtual options have made it so we can meet with anyone from the comfort of our home. If you do not want to talk to someone, you can send an email. If you need to see them but do not want to leave the house, you can set up a virtual meeting. It is easier than ever to not meet anyone in person. So why meet with your DJ in person? There are so many vendors you already have to deal with. Why should you specifically meet with them in person while planning your wedding?
Check Their Vibe
Many DJs sound great on paper. They come recommended by the venue. They have great reviews online. They respond to your emails promptly. They seem like the full package. But to make sure they are legit you should meet them in person. Sometimes a DJ is not what they seem. They may be great in every way, but still not be the right fit for you. Meeting them face to face will help you see how authentic their claims are. You can also start to develop a relationship with them the more you meet with them in person. This will help you in the long run when they DJ your wedding.
The Same Page
The DJ needs to check your vibe as much as you need to check theirs. By meeting in person, they can get a better idea about who you are as a couple. You can go over songs you love, songs you hate, and your general expectations. No one can really get to know you via email. You can send a list of what you want, but that is not enough. There is so much more to DJing than just playing music. They need to get to know you to serve you better.
Your DJ Will Be In Person
The DJ is the face of your wedding. Well, you are the face of your wedding, but your DJ is at least the host. They are responsible for making sure everyone is entertained at your reception. They are responsible for making sure that the transitions between events goes smoothly. The better your DJ knows you, the better they can make your wedding work. Your DJ is going to be in person at your wedding. You should meet with them in person since they will have to be front and center in front of your guests.
Peace of Mind
Meeting your DJ in person will give you some peace of mind. You can know that you have made the right choice. Emailing them will keep you on edge. There is no way to actually know that they will be a good fit unless you meet in person. You can know they are capable of arriving on time and are going to serve you properly. Most DJs will expect to meet in person since it will help them as much as it helps you.
