I have found this DJ that seems like a really good price. Since our wedding is in the “off-season”, their services are half off. (If it wasn’t for this, they’d be expensive!) Anyway, I have emailed them and they’ve been good at communicating with me and seem professional. However, they said that normally they don’t meet clients, although we could meet if need be.
I thought that it was standard to go and meet with your DJ?! What do you girls think? Is it shady to not want to meet or am I just being paranoid?

Nah, I won’t be meeting mine. My mom just called him up and booked him for me. I heard good things about him from others who had used him.

No, I don’t think it’s out of the ordinary. I just spoke with my DJ and we’ve never formally met! He DJed for my cousin’s husband’s 50th birthday party and I thought he did a great job, so I’m going to book him for my wedding! As long as you’re comfortable that he can do a good job, I don’t think you need to meet with him. However, I would provide him with a list of ‘must have’ songs, and a list of music genres for the wedding.

I met with mine but he said it wasn’t totally necessary. I just preferred to even though I had already worked with him previously on a music video shoot. It’s more personal and for someone who is very particular about the music that will be played, I thought it helpful.

We met with ours before booking and will have two planning sessions before the wedding. Personally, I would like to meet all my vendors face to face.
