How far in advance should I book a DJ for my wedding?

It's advisable to book your wedding DJ at least 6-12 months in advance, especially if you're interested in high-demand acts like Marvin Humes or Clara Amfo. Popular DJs' schedules can fill up quickly, especially during peak wedding seasons in spring and summer. Early booking ensures you secure your preferred DJ and have ample time to discuss and plan your music preferences and event timeline. However, if you need a last-minute act, we are on hand to help!

What makes a DJ a great choice for wedding entertainment?

DJs offer versatility that can cater to diverse musical tastes, ensuring all your guests have something to enjoy. Unlike live bands, DJs can seamlessly switch between genres and styles, keep the energy high with continuous music, and adjust the atmosphere of your reception as the night progresses. They also take up less space and can often provide additional services like hosting and lighting, making them a perfect all-in-one solution for lively and engaging wedding entertainment.
