- Wedding: March 2013
I have mostly settled on which DJ I wanted to hire, but then i was surprised to see this in his contract:
The client will provide a meal & beverages for the DJ…The client will arrange for one 6 foot rectangular table with linen, skirting, plate settings and a chair which will be set up prior to the DJ’s arrival for the DJ’s exclusive use.
I admittedly don’t understand (or enjoy) the wedding industry and I’m mostly over the annoyance of having to provide meals for both photographers, but now for the DJ too? And he requires a particular table of a minimum size and with skirting to himself, he won’t even eat with the photographers? Is this a standard request?
If I’m being naive, please let me know. It’s just weird that in the wedding industry people make these kind of requirements to be fed on the job. Of course I won’t provide alcoholic drinks, the last thing I want is a drunk DJ.
