What to do if you don't like the band or DJ you booked for your wedding
Booking music for your wedding is a critical part of enjoying your day! You want to make sure you pick a band or DJ that will get everyone on the dance floor and keep the party going all night long. But what happens if you realize that the band or wedding DJ you booked just isn't cut out for the job?
If you're not happy with the band or DJ you've booked for your wedding, don't despair – there are a few things you can do to try and salvage the situation.
There are many reasons that your DJ or band may not have worked out. Maybe they haven't been communicating with you, or they don't get the crowd going the way you want. Maybe their music wasn't what you expected, or they didn't take requests. Whatever the reason, it's important to first try and communicate with your entertainment group first to establish the issues.
First, talk to the band or DJ directly. Explain your concerns and see if they're willing to make some changes to their setlist or style of music. You also may want to put in some expectations and be clear about what you want. Have a think about what specific things you need from them such as communication, preparation or types of music. If they’re not open to compromise, then you may need to consider finding a replacement.
If you're struggling to find a suitable replacement at short notice, try asking your guests if they know any bands or wedding DJs in Melbourne who might be available. You could also look into hiring a mobile disco, which can be a great option if you're on a tight budget.
In the worst-case scenario, you may need to bite the bullet and play some of your own music on the day. This isn't ideal, but it's better than having an unenjoyable night.
