When looking for a DJ, what should we look for?
There are a LOT of things to keep in mind when looking for a DJ. Wedding DJ's in particularly have a variety of different options, skill sets and experience
they offer. To help you with your search for the right DJ, download our free e-book How to Find Your DJ.
How early should we book a DJ?
There really is no correct answer here, but the earlier the better is probably the best one. While we will take bookings as late as the night of (and that has happened),
there is no guarantee ourselves, or another DJ service, will be available. In order to reduce your own stress levels, the DJ should be one of the first vendors
What is the deposit and when is final payment due?
The deposit is typically 25% of the total amount due. The final balance can be made via post-dated cheque (dated the the date of the event) or by Credit Card,
cheque, cash or e-transfer 7 days prior to the date of the event. We do not collect the balance on the day of so that you will not have to worry about any financial
obligations while you are trying to enjoy yourselves.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are fully insured. This is important to you as if an entertainer damages anything at the venue, or if someone is injured by an entertainers equipment, you may
be held liable if the DJ has no insurance. This is why Gudlite not only carries insurance on our equipment, but Liability insurance as well.
When do you arrive to set up?
We try to arrive as early as possible to set up, program and test the equipment. If possible, we will set up the night before (if the venue allows).
The minimum amount of time we require to set up is 90 minutes.
Do you use professional grade equipment?
Yes. All of our equipment is professional quality. We would love to talk about our gear if you want (seriously, we love our gear) but since most people
are not interested in the details, you can be rest assured we use the best sound, lighting, computer and everything else we can find!
If you want to talk geek and really get into the specs, send us a message and we will gladly nerd out!
Will you get along with the other vendors?
I am actually amazed that this question has been asked. Of course we will! And I apologize if you have seen or heard of a DJ doing otherwise.
Our goal is to ensure your night goes smoothly. To accomplish this, we need to ensure that we are on the same page as the other vendors. Not only do we
reach out to them prior to the event, if we are part of the planning process, we ensure they know what is going on, and when.
Should we feed the DJ and his/her assistant?
While not required, a meal for the DJ and the assistant is greatly appreciated. They will arrive early, set up, test, perform all night, tear down and be the last
ones to leave. All without a "break". If you are not planning to feed the DJ and assistant, please let us know so that we can ensure that they are sent with
a lunch pack.
Should we tip the DJ?
While appreciated, tipping is never required and is completely optional.
Wedding Tip: Enough Bartenders
On average, one bartender per 75-100 guests can help keep lines minimal. But if you are serving signature cocktails that take extra time to prepare, you will need extra bartenders!
