- Wedding: May 2014
So, I booked our first DJ under major stress! I had 5 venders (3 photographers and 2 DJs) tell me in the same day that they were unavailable for our date. Venders in our area get booked quick, so the moment I found a DJ that was free, I booked, without really thinking.
The thing is, I LOATH our DJ. He annoys the ever living heck out of me. After going through my questions via e-mail, he got very insistant that I speak with him via phone. I didn’t really care, so I called him up. My mistake. He kept me on the phone for 45 minutes while the FI and I were trying to get other things done, telling story after story, some of them not exactly appropriate. I think this guy is going to stress me out on our wedding day.
Fastfowrd to last night, when a friend of the family called my mom and mentioned her son has a DJ business. While her son is not my favorite person, I don’t think he is going to stress me out. His business also looks ligitmate, and he has been going for 2 years including a local big event. The problem is that he is still new to the business, and probably doesn’t have as much music.
DJ 1 summary;
Annoys me, but has been in business a long time, so has a ton of music, including an artist that is my FIs favorite. We also have a deposit on him.
DJ 2 summary;
Less annoying, has been in business less time. I don’t know what his catalog is like yet. Also, even with loosing the deposit is cheeper than DJ one.
