We want to make sure that you have the best experience possible at your event. When meeting with potential entertainment vendors, it's important to ask the following questions to get a better grasp of their business, style, and customer relationships.

1. How do you customize the music experience for each couple?

You want to make sure that you find a DJ with your interests and styles in mind. For example, if you're having a Spanish style wedding, you want to make sure your music selections reflect that! Make sure your DJ gives you plenty of options, and asks YOU what you would like to see. At Entertain!, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to music - so we love to work with couples to really identify their wants and needs in order to create the perfect experience!

2. What do you typically wear?

Make sure your entertainment company will fit in with the rest of the event! Our professional DJs and musicians will dress per the dress code of the event. If you're having a formal/black tie event, the entertainment will follow suit. If you have specific requests - just ask!

3. How do you handle song requests?

Make sure that your DJs/musicians are comfortable with song requests! Clarify with your chosen entertainment company before the event what protocol you want for making sure you hear your favorite music. Some people choose to appoint a relative/bridesmaid to screen requests, and pass them on. make sure you're on the same page!

4. How many weddings to you typically do in a year?

Find out how experienced they are! In addition to weddings per year, ask about their typical events, schedule, and types of venues they play at. You might be surprised to hear just how much experience they have!

5. Why should I choose you as my DJ?

Ask and you shall receive. You want to find out exactly what makes them special. Is it their professionalism? Their unique blend of styles! Make sure you find out!
