How many hours are typically included
How does a DJ motivate a shy crowd to dance
Is it normal for a wedding DJ to plan the “setlist” with the couple
Can guests request songs

Does a DJ plan the reception timeline
How many meetings can a couple expect to have with their wedding DJ
Do DJs provide ALL sound equipment
Do DJs typically provide music for both the ceremony and reception
