FAQ: How long do I need a wedding DJ for?
Answer: How long’s a piece of string?!
This really depends on the type of party you want to have. The most common booking for us is a 5 hour DJ set and is usually 7pm-midnight, but the possibilities are endless.
Perhaps you want a DJ to start early and play background music during dinner, or maybe you’ll have a string quartet for most of the day and only need a DJ for a 2 hour blast at the end!
Certain venues have a restriction on how late you can play music; however, this doesn’t have to mean the party should end. Silent disco headphones are becoming increasingly popular for weddings that want to carry on late into the night.
Another thing to consider is equipment hire, will the venue provide a PA and mic for speeches during the day or do you need the DJ to arrive early and have everything set up before guests arrive?
