If you have decided to become a wedding DJ you may have to work hard in the beginning to establish your name. If you get an offer to DJ a small party or occasion do not reuse the offer as it may be the first stepping stone for getting success to become a professional wedding DJ. You may work under some trained wedding DJ for few months to get training and experience. To become a successful wedding DJ you have to give away your sleep as you have to work at night.

It is important to understand the tastes of audience at different weddings and you should have an ability to judge the moods of people at a wedding. Certainly it is very important to fix a meeting with the couple few days before the actual wedding to know about their guests and tastes. Get an idea from the couple about the theme and various songs which they would like to play at their wedding. Some couples like dancing songs whereas others like to play a mixture of dancing songs and emotional songs. Thus, you have to prepare a list of songs which you have to play at different weddings. Every time you have to prepare yourself.

To become a professional wedding DJ your equipment should be in a good working condition. You can give your best performance if all your equipment would be in a good condition. Check all the equipment before you go to DJ a wedding. If possible carry a separate set of equipment along with to meet an emergency.

Another important thing that people look in professional wedding DJ is registration with Disk jockey association. So, get membership of Disk jockey association so that you are easily recognized as a professional and certified DJ. You should have a liability insurance to cover any damage that may occur during the event.

Never forget to sign a contract with the wedding couple in which all the terms and conditions are written. It is important to get a claim if any damage to your equipment occurs during wedding by any guest.

As you will start getting contracts to DJ a wedding you will understand the taste and demands from different age groups. The only thing is that you have to keep yourself updated with latest songs that may be liked by people of all age groups as people from all age groups are present in a wedding and you should have potential to make them happy and contented with music and your voice. If at any stage you think you lack the capability to DJ a wedding do not accept the offer as it may ruin your image in future. Keep video clips of your previous performance ready to show it to your clients so that they can easily make their decision to select as a DJ for their wedding.
