OMG I dont have any advice but I am just curious as to why you paid in full so far in advance?

Check the reviews at projectwedding.com to see who is reliable in your area. Explain your situation in detail and go from there. Not sure what the price range is but another idea is to call or email your favorite radio station since there are some that offer dj services at parties.

Then after the wedding, take the original guy to small claims court.

Wow, the stinks. I would try to get a sound system rental and put together an iPod mix. Then after the wedding, you can try to get someone to get your money back from your contract. Save all the contact info for the “new company” in case you need to report them to the Better Business Bureau.

Your contract probably stipulated that should the DJ be unable to follow through with your commitment, they had to provide an alternate, thus selling the contract to another DJ who is doing it free of charge to YOU.  I would call the lady who owns the business who took you over as a client and let her know Dave failed to call.  And maybe ask for a backup plan, in case Dave flakes.

Call, call and call! Get “Dave” on the phone if possible! Otherwise, I’d ipod it or search for a last minute dj! Oh geez, I’m so sorry this happened! My stepmom told me that 5 days before the wedding to my dad, the caterer and the venue had it out. She can’t even remember the details, just that they had to find a caterer in 5 days. After years of being married it won’t even matter! You can pull it off though!

If you can’t get “Dave” on the phone – now is the time to call ALL your vendors and ask them for a DJ rec.


Fingers crossed that this all works out for the best (I’m sure it will!).
