- Wedding: May 2011
We had DJ Adriel do our music for our wedding but were dissapointed with the experience. We didn’t have a lot of money so budget was an issue however he agreed to work with us at the agreed price by providing live music for cocktail hour and DJ for the dinner/party.
He provided us with an Excel spreadsheet and questionnaire about what we wanted and we filled them out to the best of our abilities and included a separate sheet regarding our introductions. I called after to confirm that he received everything and ask if it was satisfactory and was told he was ready to go. After e-mailing him about the experience he has asked that I take partial responsibility for not filling out the paperwork correctly even though I was told it had been reviewed and was satisfactory at our last call. He also said that had I filled it out properly he would have told me that our introductions were not a feasible edit and that he did not do that type of work for lower budgets.
Minutes before our entrances we were told by the coordinator that he was having difficulty connecting to his playlist so I told her to tell him to do the best he could and so there was no music for the majority of the introductions. Our first song was not the correct version that we had asked for. There were many technical issues throughout the night as well such as feedback, songs being played over after they had finished which he said were unavoidable.
If I had to do it over, I would have spent the money on a more expensive DJ to save the worry and discomfort I had on how the night would turn out but thanks to my wonderful family and friends and an exceptional coordinator we had a great time.
