1. Professional music source - your wedding day DJ shouldn't be getting almost all their music from iTunes or Amazon and indeed not from YouTube. You can find professional disc jockey music subscriptions - they provide radio edited music licensed to use.

2. When performing - your wedding reception DJ should have redundant music sources (2 laptops, CD player, etc) to ensure that if something wrong happens with the first music source, there isn't dead air. Which means that they need to have both sources setup and running all the time - not of their car or new laptop bag. I see a DJ once leave one or two in the center of the party area for pretty much 3 minutes as they tried to get their first dance to get started on.

3. When interviewing your potential wedding disc jockey - they must have audio or films with their MC work - you need to be able to hear them do an intro or announcements so you can get a feel for their style and whether they will embarrass you and the guests on the microphone in your wedding ceremony.

4. Yes, there are numerous numbers of DJ gear from entry to top quality. Obviously the larger end gear will sound better, but there are some basics that your wedding DJ should have - the correct sized audio system to your venue and guest count. In case you just have 40 guests inside the back room of a restaurant or else you have invited 500 guests inside the largest of banquet halls - these don't require precisely the same size sound system. Too much or weak hands can be an issue. Ensure their sound system is scalable to your needs. Typically of thumb - under 100 guests / 2 speakers, 100-200 / A few speakers, over 200 guests / bigger audio system needed to properly fill the area.

5. Are you able to believe it, however in nowadays - there are still DJs around that don't have an invisible microphone. For weddings - it can be important to have one for toasts. Ask that they will handle toasts and where the top Man has to mean their speech.

6. Having a separate spot for your social hour or exist many rooms getting used within your banquet facility? You might need a wireless audio system (wireless stereo speakers) from the wedding DJ to cover the appropriate areas.

7. Is the ceremony on-site? In case your wedding DJ provides music and microphone on your ceremony - you ought to ensure there is a SEPARATE SYSTEM for your ceremony. You wouldn't want them wearing down gear and dragging through guests at the end of the ceremony and rushing to create for cocktail hour. Don't forget your wireless microphone needs - typically you wish to hear your officiant, your exchange of vows and possibly you are having a singer or reader? That typically means three separate microphones - It's unlikely that any. Perhaps there is electric power offered at the ceremony site? You will need your DJ so that you can run their system off battery.

8. Everybody knows that everything doesn't go as planned. Does your DJ have back plans? Are they using the best and similarly skilled DJ offered to fill out due to illness or emergency? What are the results when they experience gear failure? Are they using complete backup gear on-site (does poor quality for the wedding if it is back in the office)

9. Cover you're a** - if your wedding DJ runs their business in an ethical and professional way - they'll be in a position to provide evidence Insurance. Many wedding venues demand it before a DJ may also step foot inside to arrange. Require proof of insurance.

10. Request social evidence power they have - on-line reviews should be posted on sites
