We first heard about our DJ from the venue. then my FMIL asked if we got a dj yet she said one of her co-workers just got married and had an AMAZING DJ…… Same guy the venue told us about. He got great reviews on here & the knot.

His org price was WAY more then i was willing to pay and when i told him i heard he was AMAZING but out of our budget he droped his price $300!

I would NOT go with anyone who doesnt reply/ get back to you!

I found my DJ through a wedding expo and when I went in for my consultation, they served us alcohol and snacks. then they showed us (among a few other couples) what their website looked like, a recent gig, and took us into a warehouse room set up to look like a party and played some songs we selected on their systems (so we could hear the sound quality). we booked with them right away and have been pretty happy with them so far. We get to meet and pick our own DJ and communicate with him on a regular basis. It was a pretty cool process.

You might post on your local board and ask for DJ recommendations or feedback on the Dj you are communicating with. 

As far as vendors deleting reviews on Wedding Wire, only reviews that were not legitimate (ie: posted by someone who did not do business with the vendor) can be removed.  The reason vendors have a lot of positive reviews is not from them having negative ones deleted but vendors tend to ask clients who were happy to post a review.  You can also do a google search to see where else the DJ is reviewed and if there are negative reviews for him on other sites.

Our DJ encouraged us to come and see him at an upcoming wedding he would be doing (with permission of the bride and groom, of course) but we had already seen in him in action at another wedding, so we didn’t need to do that.  Do you think your DJ might let you pop in at a wedding he has coming up?
