Finding Your Ocean County Wedding DJ
DJ’s in Ocean County, NJ are all very, very different from each other. Working in the wedding industry for 7 years now, I have had the privilege and distain to meet many of them and work for a few before starting my own company. For the prospective bride who is planning her wedding in Ocean County or anywhere in NJ for that matter, it is important to stay away from the “one man show.” The solo DJ who works a full time job and does weddings and parties one the side is exactly that; on the side. Professional entertainment companies are the better choice 9 times out of 10 (my personal stat). Working in entertainment in Ocean County has its set of challenges like anywhere else but there are a few more, that brides to be need look into before hiring an Ocean County Wedding DJ.
First, brides should ask questions about what the DJ thinks about the wedding receptions. Generally, professional DJs will have responses about family, working with other vendors, or about providing customer service before/during the wedding. If the DJ says that he wants to “blow up” your Ocean County wedding, you can almost guarantee that the music will be loud and obnoxious (Can you say, “Let me clear my throat”). Successful NJ entertainment companies are focused on the bride and creating an “atmosphere” for the wedding; not stealing the spotlight by yelling on the microphone or with high-priced plasma TVs.
Second, brides should beware of absurd upgrades like plasmas, projectors, dancers, and extreme light shows. It is one thing for a DJ company to offer those add-ons to serve clients, it is another to be pushy and not listen to concerns to see if they are a good fit. Take Enchanted Celebrations as an example, we have an 18 page full color catalog with over 30 different wedding related products and services, plus a full wedding stationary company, however you don’t see our brides saying, “wow, we had great time at the wedding, but they really were pushy.” As a matter of fact, we hear the opposite! A professional Ocean County wedding DJ will listen to your concerns and give recommendations on what is appropriate for you; not his next boat payment!
When brides are searching through NJ DJ entertainment companies, they have to remember that the entertainment is the cornerstone of their wedding reception, it’s the party! If the DJ doesn’t show up, it’s nothing less than a disaster : (
