The Wedding fairs season continues and, as Sean still has another one coming up, he’s keen to share some of the insights from his most recent wedding fayre at Beckenham Place Mansion.  

"Beckenham was buzzing for us, and other wedding suppliers, and it quickly became clear that having such a wealth of choice can be a bit overwhelming when you're still at the decision-making phase of wedding planning!

So, to help when it comes to deciding about wedding DJs - and most other wedding providers - the one thing I'd definitely recommend is doing your research and getting recommendations!"

Research beyond the wedding fairs

As well as talking to service providers at wedding fairs, Sean also advises …

  • Seek out recommendations from others by asking around. So, if you’ve been to any weddings lately, ask the couple for feedback about the suppliers they’ve used. If you’ve already signed up with a highly recommended supplier, such as a photographer, ask them if they recommend anyone they’ve worked alongside. In this age of digital DJ decks, DJs and photographers often work together at wedding parties, so it’s definitely worth asking one to recommend the other. 
  • Look for industry memberships. Does the DJ / provider have any accredited memberships?
  • Look for industry recommendations. Has that cake maker / florist / DJ been shortlisted or even won an award?
  • Check out public reviews and testimonials.

high standards, high prices?

It’s also worth remembering that wedding industry awards are highly competitive. This is great news for industry award winners, because it means they can command top prices for their services.

However, even if your budget is restricted, Sean reckons it’s also great news for couples. 

Really Sean? How’s that?

"It's because industry bodies such as the Wedding Industry Awards and Directory are very stringent when in comes to taking reviews from customers and in checking up on the nominees' services and reputations. It's why we're always glad to be a part of each year's awards, it's a way that couples can be reassured about our services.

So, if your budget doesn't stretch to the award winner, you can be sure that other shortlisted services aren't short on service delivery ... and they'll likely charge a little less, which brings great value and equally high standards for your budget."

Recommendations in ‘real-time’ are also useful, as theres nothing staged about them. Sean loves it when his happy couples jump onto a video on the day, to share the amazing time they’re having. Like the brand new Mrs Mackay …!

So, do ask around and ask plenty of questions. The answers you get may inspire you with more questions to ask the provider. Remember, a quality provider should allow you to ask all your questions even if you come back several times to ask them!

So, if you have any for Sean, he welcomes calls and emails and will be happy to help as much as possible. And there’s still time to catch him in person, as he’ll be at the Meridian Hall Wedding Fair, East Grinstead on Sunday 10th October 2021. Please come along and say hello!
