What you can expect from us
You’re booked and we’re pumped to be part of your vendor team! Rest assured, we’re going to help make an awesome celebration that will be memorable and fun for you and your guests! Thanks for trusting us to be a part of one of the best days for your life!
Here are some things you need to know to make this ride even smoother:
- How to get ahold of us: Email is the best way to reach your DJ to make changes or communicate. Should you misplace their contact information, just reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Availability: Everything with our team can be done via video chat or over the phone but if you want to meet in person, just let your DJ know. most of our meetings are weekday evenings. Weekend meetings are typically not available due to our event schedule.
- Emails from us: You will get various emails along the way. Some are reminders to do things like fill out your Vibo planners, other are offers for an amazing service you may not know you need, and other are tips/helpful info. We like to stay in touch! One last thing, you will get an email from us AFTER the wedding as well, and we love reviews (hint! hint!).
- Sample timeline: Below you’ll find a link to a sample timeline. Every wedding is different and we will do whatever you’d like. This is simply what we have found works best.
- Tips: After looking at the sample timeline, read these 12 quick tips. You’ll thank us later.
- Meals: You are not required to feed the DJ. We wont starve. If you do provide us a meal we will eat quickly with other vendors and out of sight of your guest if you wish.
- Arrival/set-up: On your wedding day, we typically arrive 1.5 to 2 hours before your event.
- Requirements: As per the contract, we don’t need much. a 10×10 area and power. We are easy.
- Gratuities: Tipping is totally up to you! We typically see 10-20% tips if the DJ was amazing.
- The Music: Of course, this is the most important thing to us, heck, we are DJs. If it’s important to you, take some time to work on your online planner, send us the links to your fave Spotify playlists or link them to your Vibo. Speaking of, check out some of ours below.

- For a wedding, keep in mind that your guests are going to be where the couple are. If you’re on the dance floor, the guests will be too!
- Don’t micromanage the timeline. We do need the order of events but not necessarily the exact time of each. Its ok to go with the flow a little.
- If there are older guests, try not to sit them close or right in front of speaker(s).
- Don’t put the DJ in an obscure location or corner, the DJ needs to be easily visible and near the dance floor to get feel for the crowd.
- If you have dance floor lighting, keep in mind that the darker the better. Use dimmers for chandeliers, cafe lighting ect.
- If you have a bar or photo booth at the event, please put it in the main room where the DJ is. You want to keep people near the dance floor at all times.
- When picking your songs for your event, take into account not only your taste, but the guests’ taste as well.
- You always want to leave the guests wanting more. Its not your responsibility to entertain guests until 2am.
- When picking your music you don’t have to over do it. Pick 20 or so songs you like and a few you don’t, and let us fill in from there.
- We typically recommend that toasts are kept around 5 minutes per person and a maximum of 4 people.
- We also recommend that the first dance is done right after introductions to help spread out the formalities. Shortening the parent dances also isn’t a bad idea.
- When reviewing your budget ask yourself what you remembered most from the last event you attended. Was is the linens or how much fun you had? Entertainment can truly make or break your event!
