I would run like the wind from this company. I do NOT think it’s unreasonable to want to meet w/ your dj. If they don’t have time for you now, can you imagine how they would be closer to your wedding? That e-mail is just absurd.

Yeah def. don’t book through these people.  The only reason companies wouldn’t meet with potential clients is if they have something to hide.  Keep looking.

Walk away.  Meeting your DJ in person is essential.  🙂

Second everyone else’s comments–run like the wind. This is code for “we put a cool profile/playlist/picture/sample online but the actual person you’ll get is someone completely different.”

If meeting the DJ is important to you, then make it a priority and go for it!

Every DJ i emailed wanted to meet with me. They said they could do it now or closer to the wedding. So weird they dont “have time”

No, this guy’s response is not normal. Sounds like he has a major chip on his shoulder. Keep looking. It’s not at all unreasonable to meet with a DJ and get a sense of his/her personality and style before booking for your wedding!

This is pretty ridiculous. The company is pretty much stating that only once you book the dj (and probably pay some kind of non-refundable fee) then you can meet the DJ and see if you like him/her?

Would a bakery every say “oh, you can book us first and then you can have a cake tasting” or a photographer say “oh, you can book me first, and then ill sit down with you and show you my photos.”

Puh-lease. Every wedding vendor knows they gotta spend the time meeting with potential brides. Sure, lots of brides walk away, but its part of the business.

And i agree with you about needing to mesh with the DJ’s personality. Some are pushy and corny, others are too timid. You need to meet them in person.

It’s like they’re saying you’re not important until you hire them. RUN, girl.
