Best Wedding Entertainment Melbourne - Choosing The Right DJ

Choosing The Best Wedding Entertainment Melbourne For Your Reception!

When it comes to organising a wedding, there are so many different businesses to chose from and hire, and the choices can be daunting.

One business I see couples struggle with often is the choice of the best wedding entertainment Melbourne or a live wedding band & how to pick these providers. You have likely heard me say talk about this before, but I am a massive fan of the wedding DJ Melbourne & everything they can bring to a wedding reception.


Picking The Best DJ For Your Wedding Reception!

One of the very critical choices you need to decide on for your wedding reception is deciding on the right businesses for your event. In my opinion, the business you decide on to be the Entertainment/DJ for the wedding reception will ultimately have the deciding factor in whether or not you and your friends and family have an exciting, memorable experience or an unpleasant experience. A professional wedding DJ should not only be providing you and your friends and family with great music, but they should as well be serving as the night’s MC (unless you want a family friend) and coordinator. They should help coordinate the wedding and make sure that announcements are given in a timely fashion. The best wedding DJ Melbourne are masters at keeping people informed & keeping the night flowing smoothly so that you, as the bride & groom, have nothing to stress about on your special day.

When deciding on the Entertainment/DJ for the wedding reception, you should do some Google research on that business to make sure they are going to be who they say they are. Here is a list of a couple of things to consider when picking the entertainment/DJ.Click the link for wedding DJ Melbourne Matt Jefferies Entertainment.

1. When Searching Google, Where Will You Find Them On Your Prefered Search Engine?

Businesses that are really serious about their business will take the time to promote their business, so they will be easily found on the Internet. You will find this more & more common these days as most businesses can be found with Google searches & other Internet-based search engines. Legitimate businesses will rank on the first page of different search engine like Google, Yahoo and Bing, for example. They will also have multiple glowing reviews that you will be able to look at and get a really good feel for who you are hiring. We like to ask our couples to review us on ABIA, Facebook and Google, as they have the most trusted systems in the wedding industry!

2. How Fast Does That Business Get Back To You After You Enquire About Their Services?

A reputable best wedding entertainment Melbourne DJ should always get back to you within 24 hours of being contacted. Many businesses out there are small one or two-person operations. They most likely have a full-time job, as well as DJing, being a part-time secondary source of cash, making them harder to contact and coordinating the event with them. If they do not get back to you within this time frame, it usually means this is what you may be dealing with for the remainder of the time leading up to your wedding reception. We will contact you within 24 hours every time, even on weekends and public holidays.

3. Will They Set Up A Zoom Meeting To Go Over The Details Of The Wedding And Go Over The Contract Terms With You?

You should always set up a Zoom meeting with the prefered business you are thinking about booking. If you have the opportunity to meet the DJ and get to know them a little better, do it. If you can not set up a face to face meeting, then you might want to have detailed conversations over the phone to talk about the needs you have for the wedding. Nowadays, we are even using Zoom for brides & grooms that can not meet us in person. These meetings are also an awesome time to go over the contract to make sure everything is covered for your wedding reception . You should never go with a vendor who asks for a booking fee to hold a date without going over the contract. Not having an contract in place tells me that your wedding reception is not important enough to them. A written agreement like ours provides reliability & commitment & also provides peace of mind that your wedding reception is in good hands.

4. Who is Going To Be The DJ For The Wedding?

At Matt Jefferies Entertainment, we only have one wedding DJ Melbourne and that’s Matt himself. We are happy to meet or do a Zoom meeting, and when you book a wedding DJ with us, you know that you are in good hands. Check our reviews for DJ as they all come from the one DJ, Matt.

5. How Professional Is The Company You Are Looking To Book, and How Much Do They Cost To Hire?

In my opinion, professionalism, pride, and integrity in ownership are some of the most important attributes a business can possess. The business should be easy to get a hold of, be on time for the meetings, and always be willing to help you out in the planning process. If the business you talk to spends more time bad-mouthing their competition than talking about what they can do for you, then all that tells me as a consumer is they are not confident enough to let the reputation speak for itself. No business with high integrity & professionalism should ever bad-mouth any other business. Research every company you are looking into, and you can find additional reviews and consumers’ experience with that business. I am sure that you have heard before the adage you get what you pay for, correct?

In many cases, this is true when choosing your business. Some businesses have built such a good reputation that their prices are a little more than other businesses. But wouldn’t you want to spend a little more for a business with an excellent reputation than some other business that has a poor reputation but will save you a couple of hundred dollars?

I hope that this written blog will help provide some insight for you when choosing which Entertainment/DJ business to hire. They are a lot of great businesses out there that do an amazing job, but there are a lot of businesses that will trick you with fast-talking to get your hard earned cash but then not follow through with all their promises. Good luck to anyone getting married this year & to those of you who are still trying to find the right business for your wedding day.
