Great Value DJ
Dillon (or Dylan?- sorry we never caught the spelling!!) was SO great for our wedding. He constantly communicated with us, when someone made a ridiculous request, he put it through either me or my husband. He made great recommendations about our timeline and was incredibly professional.Sent on 05/21/2019
We LOVE the totally online system that Music by Design has. Would 100% recommend this company for Chicagoland weddings!

We had Jim as our DJ from MBD. He was great. Very energetic and responsive to our requests. I would definitely recommend this company. The ability to use an online platform for planning and requesting was EXACTLY what we were looking for!Sent on 02/17/2019

The best dance party!
Our DJ Carl provided the perfect atmosphere for each part of our night. He was proactive about talking with all the important people of the evening to make sure everyone knew what to do! He made sure everyone had a great time!Sent on 01/12/2019

Amazing Music All Night!
We did our DJ and PhotoBooth both by design! Let me tell you they both were amazing! Jim was our DJ and he was fantastic! We gave him free range of our music. All we said was we want everyone to be on the dance floor all night and he delivered. We received nothing but compliments from everyone at the wedding about our music. Will recommend to everyone!Sent on 12/06/2018

Andrew was FANTASTIC and put our minds at ease about every worry you might have about the timeline of your day. You can't go wrong with this company!Sent on 12/06/2018

I was nervous when it was time to hire a DJ because I really feel like the music can make or break a reception and how great of a time guests are having. After having a consultation with Music By Design, I knew they were the company for me. They make it a point to not be cheesy or cliche, and they have an awesome online portal where you can pick your music, see suggested playlists, and so much more. Our DJ Pete was so awesome and everyone loved him :) He was great at reading through my song requests to get a feel for what kind of music we like, and he was able to read the crowd well to keep them on the dance floor all night! He was so nice and gave the wedding the right feel. I'm so glad we went with Music By Design, it was definitely the right choice!!Sent on 10/17/2018

Exceptional DJ. THE BEST!
Hands down the best music and professionalism I could have asked for. I had Carl as our DJ for our wedding and he came incredibly prepared. Our conversation on the phone regarding timeline and song choices was wonderful. Only Music by Design allows you to select songs online through an interactive program. I was beyond impressed. I had met with 5 DJ's before choosing Music by Design and I am so lucky that I did. Price is incredibly reasonable and Carl had set up for the perfect ambiance for our special day. BIG, HUGE thank you!Sent on 12/17/2018

Music By Design was a dream to work with. They were extremely accommodating with all our name in lights design requests (and there were probably a million). The DJ did an amazing job even when he was thrown a few curve balls from the hall when setting up. My bridal party and I joke that we wish we had a complete playlist from the night to play for the future.Sent on 10/24/2018

The first thing that sold us on this dj was the online planning tools. It was so easy to create our playlists and find music this way.Sent on 10/04/2018
Our wedding was on 9/28/18 with Pete. He was so friendly and professional. He kept our dance floor packed all night! We got so many compliments from guests about the dj, everyone loved him.
So many other places wanted to charge us their normal rate plus an additional cost for the ceremony. But music by design was only one flat fee. They also accepted payment through their online portal or chase quick pay, so paying them was extremely convenient.

My wedding was on 9/22/18. We had Jim as our DJ from music by design. He was amazing. I keep on getting that this was the best wedding from my friends and family. At times everyone was on the dance floor, and that was amazing. Jim listened to us about the music that we wanted and took that and made it even better. I totally recommend Jim for your wedding or event!!!!! Also, we had the photo booth from them, and the photo booth person brought all of the props and everyone had a blast. At the end of the night, we had a photo book of everyone's pictures and messages!! Plus we get all of the electronic versions too!!!! I just can't thank Jim and music by design enough!!!!!!! They made my wedding perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Sent on 09/26/2018

Jim was the DJ for our wedding on April 28, 2018. He went above and beyond to make sure we had such a fun time at our event, the music selection was phenomenal, his interaction with all of the guests was great! You could tell he really enjoys what he does for a living, and it shows in his work! The week of the wedding he calls to do a run through of the wedding day, he was so easy to talk to, answered all of my questions, and made me feel at ease! I would highly recommend Music By Design for any and all services, and request Jim for your DJ, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 05/29/2018

We were very happy with our choice to use Music by Design. They have a great system where you can upload all of the songs you want to play - whether it be for the ceremony, cake cutting, or for the dance floor. We met our DJ, Dave, via conference call and were unsure how it would turn out. Dave was absolutely amazing! He did a great job of keeping everyone on schedule, announced the speeches and events well (without being too in-your-face), and he played so many of the songs we requested. He used his expertise to play fast/slow songs at the right times to get everyone on the dance floor. We had multiple people comment on how great the DJ was at our wedding. Definitely recommend using Dave for your event!!Sent on 09/22/2018
Alyssa · Married on 08/18/2018
Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I felt very comfortable and they have great customer service.
We had Dave for our wedding on 8.18.18 and he was great! He was very professional and got everyone where they needed to be when they needed to be there. He did awesome with introductions and playing music! He always came and found me and my husband and asked us is everything is okay and sounding good and also came and found me to ask about the toss bouquet since I originally wasn’t going to do it. We received so many compliments! Such a great price, too! Highly recommend booking Music by Design! Thanks Dave!Sent on 08/24/2018

We had Jim as our DJ and he did a great job. We first chose him because we got to meet him right from the start and we could tell that he is genuinely a good guy. He was a true professional. Heading up to the wedding he was willing to meet up with me to go over everything on a couple of occasions. Not only that, but I also had an elaborate groomsmen dance for my now wife. He became familiar with the script and executed everything on queue. As for all the music in general, all of our guests had a great time. They sang along to all of the music during dinner and danced the night away till the end. Jim I owe you for helping us with a successful wedding. Highly recommended.Sent on 09/12/2018

Definitely the best!
Music by Design was great to work with! I am a project manager and when it came to my wedding day I was concerned about keeping everything organized and moving forward, but I didn’t need to worry about that! David was unbelievable and even was telling me not to worry as I was trying to make sure he met up with our officiant on the day of! He had it all under control! The backend system that Music by Design has for selecting music, outlining the order of events, and names of bridal party is genius! Our ceremony sound system was great, our reception music kept everyone on the dance floor, and David kept dances, dinner and all other events on time! Would recommend David and Music by Design to anyone!Sent on 12/18/2018

My dj was David. He was friendly and knew exactly what I wanted. Music By Design is a very unique vendor because they really cater to your needs and offer a range of services that fit the needs of any event, not just weddings. David and I worked very closely on my ceremony and reception and for that reason we are very satisfied with their service.Sent on 10/17/2012

We were blown away by the high caliber of work that Music By Design brought to our wedding. Our event was held outdoors, and the sound system was crystal clear throughout the ceremony and reception. Our DJ, Jim, was professional, thoughtful, and friendly, and he was able to easily collaborate with our other vendors. He did an excellent job incorporating our (very specific) requests, guest requests, and his own song choices. We received many compliments from the guests on the music, our favorite being that the music really reflected our personalities and relationship. We would highly recommend Music By Design!Sent on 09/16/2018

I just recently got married and used Music by Design for our DJ. We had David who did a WONDERFUL job. He was quick, efficient, helped the flow of the evening, was very polite and played all the music and song selections just perfectly. The guests raved about him!Sent on 07/19/2018

My wife and I could not be happier with our decision to use MBD for our wedding. We chose them because they played my sister's wedding back in 2011 and I wanted a company I could trust. Well, they exceeded all our expectations. Andrew was fun,energetic,engaging, and professional. I have been to a lot of weddings and I can proudly say I have never seen as many people on the dance floor during the last song than at our wedding. I truly believe that is in large part to Andrew at MBD. I will continue to recommend them to everyone I can! Thanks MBD!Sent on 07/17/2018

Our whole experience with Music by Design was outstanding. All our questions/emails were responded to quickly and the value of the services we got were outstanding. Pete was our DJ and he was phenomenal. He kept the party going even when few people were on the dance floor towards the end of the night and really kept in the vibe we were trying to go for. He included a lot of the music we requested in the online form and was able to create an environment our guests felt comfortable in to let loose on the dance floor. He did a great job working with us to keep everything organized day of and was able to help me execute a surprise for my parents during our ceremony that really meant a lot to our family. We had so many people compliment our DJ service after the wedding. Highly recommend Music by Design and Pete for helping us create the day of our dreams!Sent on 07/10/2018
