Should I be concerned that our DJ might be flaky on our wedding day? We like his style, experience, price, and personality, but it worries me a little bit that he completely forgot about our meeting this week.
We were scheduled to go over the song list and timelines but the DJ never showed. When we called him, he was having a meeting with another client at the same time at a different location (about $25 cab ride away), and basically asked us to go over there.
Despite his explanations, since he booked another appointment at the same time and did not have any of our information (contract, song list, timeline, etc.) on him, it was obvious that he completely forgot about the appointment. He apologized but without fully admitting that he forgot about us.
Luckily, I brought copies of everything, and the rest of the meeting went well but I feel a little apprehensive and am starting to wonder if this is what people call “warning signs”. Should I be really worried about this? Our wedding is a month away.
Thank you so much for reading this and for sharing your thoughts!

@vitaminC: hmm, I can see why you might be concerned! I personally wouldn’t look for another DJ, but that might be too trusting of me. I tend to want to give them the benefit of the doubt. Have you looked up reviews on this DJ- do they come up as pretty reliable?
I guess I would start there and see how reviews are, and if punctuality and reliability is a problem, then yes, I would look for another DJ. Otherwise, maybe just stay the course? Best of luck to you and sorry to hear you’re having a bit of trouble!

@pengoala: +1 I agree and it would have been good for him to admit but hey, were humans and occasionaly we make mistakes. See what reviews sayand if theyre good id continue with him. Finding a DJ last minute could land you with worse

Thank you for your thoughtful resonses! The online reviews are mostly good so I will just let this one slide and hope for the best. I will also send him a reminder a week before the wedding. Thanks a bunch! You have eased my heart 🙂
