We drove all over Orange County to meet with DJs. I think you have to meet them otherwise you won’t know if your personalities match. We went through a few of them before we met a DJ that we instantly clicked with.

I would definitely meet with them in person – you can get a better feel for their personality that way.

The two I met with were willing to come to me.  Another one wanted me to drive out an hour and I ended up cancelling.  Another wanted me to see them in action (another hour away).  And then another refused to give me any price range until we met (which I thought was ridiculous).  I wasn’t 100% happy with my DJ – he was fine… but just kinda blah.  But, I picked him because he was punctual and had a backup plan for his backup plan which was really nice.

We’re planning a wedding multiple states away, so it was impossible to meet with DJs, even though I felt really strongly about meeting them beforehand.  But, we got some recommendations, read a ton of reviews, and had a 45 minute call with our DJ before hiring him, so I felt great about him from that.  So, I think it’s possible to do it without meeting with them, but you should definitely get some recommendations and chat on the phone a couple times.

@yu29:  Also, I suggest asking if they have a demo CD so you know if you like their music and style.
