I’d ask about his/her flexibility with following a playlist (and/or a DO NOT play list), policy toward taking guest requests (we found one who doesn’t take them, which makes us very happy!), recommendations for a lighting vendor — sometimes you can work with a sister company if you’re looking for this, and get a discount, if he/she uses any props (good to know if you’re definitely looking for or NOT looking for this), etc.  Good luck in your search!

Mine was $500. He gave us a packet to go through and check what we’d like to hear and what we DO NOT want to hear. I told my Fiance the chicken dance is out. I hate seeing this at weddings, sorry! Just not a fan.

You do NOT want a DJ that is too much of an MC. A friend of mine had one like this and he was insanely annoying. It was more like a prom dance DJ than a wedding. It’s better when they stay quiet and don’t comment on stuff constantly throughout the night!
