We don't have a wedding planner (but my entire job is me planning sporting events and outdoor trips, so I'm organized and good at details) and I feel really comfortable with selecting vendors for most of our wedding. However, I'm really stuck on how to select a good DJ (deejay) for our wedding. Like, I can look at a photographer's portfolio or a florist's website and get a good idea of the quality of product they offer, but a DJ literally pushes the play button on a bunch of pre-recorded songs so I have zero idea how to choose one. I want to think there is more to it than a sound system and an Apple music playlist, but with music subscription services is there really a reason to hire a professional button pusher (especially if you have access to professional sound equipment) and then how do you go about picking one?
Any advice in this arena would be helpful!
