I’m in the midst of choosing a DJ for my wedding, and its been very stressful! I had narrowed it down to three people/companies, and had met with each. My first choice is a company with multiple DJs (10+). When I emailed them initially asking if they were available, they said yes, DJ A is available for your date – so I met with DJ “A”. And loved him as a DJ!! They also said that their company provides JOP services for free if you book them as a DJ. It is my understanding that the DJ would act as the JOP during the ceremony, and be the DJ at the reception (there is an “assistant” DJ to keep things running smoothly throughout).
Heres the issue… I do love DJ “A” as a DJ, and would totally hire him right now. But I’d also like to get the free JOP services from this company, because I’m on a super tight budget! But, I really don’t connect with DJ “A” as a JOP. Though I’m not religious, I do want and need to feel some sort of deeper connection to the person marrying us and pronouncing us husband and wife. I didn’t feel that connection and click with DJ “A” as my JOP 🙁
So, I want to ask the company if they have another DJ/JOP I could meet with and see if I connect with them as a DJ and as a JOP. But I don’t know how to phrase that nicely – like, I dont like the first person you set me up with.. can you set me up with another? I feel like I’m insulting DJ “A” when its nothing against him, really. We just didn’t click on the level I wanted for our officiant..
