5. Do you take requests during the event?
Yes! We will take and play requests as long as it does not interfere with any of the Bride & Groom's wishes. We have a vast music library, but if we do not have a ceartin song, we can dowload it on the spot free of charge (requires WiFi).
6. Do you have a backup plan?
Yes. In the unlikely event of an equipment malfunction during your event, we have several plans in place to make sure the music continues and your event is not adversly affected.
7. Do you dress professionally?
Absolutely! Sweet Sound DJs typically wear dress pants, a button-up dress shirt and a necktie. If you have a preferred color or style, please just let us know and we will accomodate your wishes.
8. Can we meet our DJ in person prior to our event?
Yes! In fact, we insist. We want to help you plan the music and schedule of your reception to make sure everything goes according to plan. We typically like to meet with clients at least twice before the event, but we will happily meet them more if necessary.
9. Do you provide a written contract?
Of course! At booking, we require a signed contract and $100 security deposit to hold the date.
10. Should I tip my DJ?
This is completely up to you. We do not include gratuity in your event fee, so 15-20% is greatly appreciated but not required. Again, this is up to you depending on your level of satisfaction and wedding budget.
11. Should I feed my DJ?
Again, this is up to you. If our DJs have time during dinner and a plate is offered to us, more times than not, we will eat. However, we understand that food costs money, so please just work with your caterer on what may work best to feed your vendors. If you are not feeding your vendors, that is completely fine also.
12. When should I book my DJ?
Most vendors, including your DJ, should be booked between 6-12 months of your wedding date. Most brides are booking one year out and the sooner you book, the more options that will be available to you!
