The image of nuptials on a tropical beach on the warm sand is a fantastic wedding picture. Having your closest friends and family multiplies that pretty picture to a masterpiece that many couples dream of. Being a mobile wedding dj for over 30 years I have come across many different scenarios that might not be considered when looking to hire a Toronto destination wedding DJ.
As with any of my potential clients I always suggest meeting with your wedding professional . If it a large company that has several different wedding DJs make sure that you are able to meet the dj that will be responsible for YOUR specific wedding. If you are unable to have face-to-face meeting there are still several internet streaming options such as Skype.
If you have met with your Toronto wedding dj the next step should be the music. For instance you should always book a professional event dj that specializes in all the music that you , your partner , your family and your guest will want to hear. In my biased opinion there is NOTHING more important than the right music for your ceremony, dinner , cocktails and reception. Leaving that up to a CD or iPod playlist is really setting yourself up for failure.
The cost of hiring a Toronto destination wedding Dj is a bit different than a local one. Locally the dj will have their transportation budgeted into you pricing . For a destination wedding a couple will be responsible for flight , transportation and a minimum one to two night stay at the resort.
Another cost that is sometimes forgotten is the cost of equipment. Your local Toronto wedding DJ has the same weight restrictions that you do so they won’t be able to bring all of their wedding dj equipment when they travel. They may have previously worked at you destination wedding venue and have procedures in place but usually it is clients responsibility to secure the equipment for the ceremony and reception. There are wedding destination resorts that sometimes inflate the pricing for use of their equipment. Be wary and have a contract to avoid any hidden fees.
