@peanut88:  We are using Sounds Abound. Check them out on Yelp. My sister used them for her wedding, and it was the most fun wedding I have ever been to (and I’ve been to a lot). 

You have unlimited meetings with your DJ beforehand, but my favorite part is their online planner. They have a 50,000 song database. You choose up to 20 must-plays, unlimited do-not-plays, and then an unlimited number of other songs you like so they can get a sense of your style. They also list the top requested songs for mother-son, father-daughter, first dance, etc, so you can get ideas.

Plus their packages were really reasonable.

Check out Okyne Medialabs, they are reasonable and they won’t play corny wedding music. You also get an online profile where you can pay at your convenience and create your own playlist.

Second for Sounds Abound – we booked them about 2 weeks before the wedding and they were so great it felt like we’d had them all along.

Some of my friends went to a wedding dj’d by Okyne and they said it was the biggest party wedding they’ve been to.

Our second choice was White Lable Weddins Djs.  We ended up going with Toast and Jam, but had an inital meeting with one of the White Lable guys and they seemed pretty good.  At the time they only had one Chicago DJ and we were conserned about the lack of an emergency back up, but they now have more than one.  The guy we spoke with seemed to be very music focused and knew what he was talking about, so I’d say they’re worth a look.

@peanut88:  We are using Tone Productions! So far so good? I’ve heard good things from friends who have been to weddings with them
