The Complete 2018 Guide To Hiring Your Charleston Wedding DJ

12 December 2017

Over the past few years I have written numerous informative blogs about varying topics in regards to making the right hiring decision when securing a great DJ for your Charleston wedding. If you just arrived here, welcome and congratulations on your recent engagement. If you have spent anytime recently reading over my blog, you know exactly how impassioned I am about music and how exactly I treat my clients, and just how serious I am about providing them an exceptional wedding DJ experience. We're easing into another engagement season and when she does say "yes", there will be lots of searching on the internet for wedding venues and other important vendors, like your wedding DJ. I thought I would take this time to review my blog and create one master post with links to some of my most informative posts and make a one-stop guide in helping brides and grooms book one of their most important wedding vendors and begin creating the perfect soundtrack for their Charleston wedding over at Lowndes Grove, The William Aiken House, The Daniel Island Club, The Governor Thomas Bennett House, and the beautiful and serene and historic Middleton Place.

Brides and grooms who will be engaged this holiday season or will be likely popping the question by the year's end can use this blog post as their helpful and handy guide in hiring one of the most important wedding vendors for their Charleston wedding: the DJ. Be sure to listen to the miniature podcasts and promotional audio down below in this post, and read over the blogs that are hyperlinked creating this central repository of all things Charleston Wedding DJs. If you got engaged or are almost there, Merry Christmas and a huge congratulation from my company.
