Your wedding day
will be the single most important day of your life, therefore it goes
without saying that you'll want everything to run as smooth as possible.
No hassle, no
worries... just eat, drink, and be merry... That's where Bay
Deejays comes in! We can't supply the food or drink, but we
will definitely bring plenty of merriment to your dance floor. And
we'll do it without "cheese" or ego. Without dragging people by the
arm or calling them out in embarrassment. And no, we won't turn your
wedding into our next commercial - we respect the privacy of our
clients and their guests. You won't see us with cameras or video
recorders like so many other vendors in the industry who will litter their
websites and Facebook page with your most candid moments. If we use
a photo on our site, it was shared directly from the client - not taken by
one of our DJs.
From the moment you
contact us and meet with your Bay Deejays Wedding Specialist,
you'll understand that you're not dealing with just any DJ company, you've
come to the firm that is dedicated to providing perfect weddings
receptions and ceremonies and nothing else...the entertainment firm where
So what exactly
should you expect as one of our clients? Well, first off, you can
expect that you'll be part of an elite circle of couples that have decided
that they aren't interested in "cookie cutter" wedding entertainment.
Why so elite?
Mainly because we are a smaller DJ firm that is just fine with remaining a
smaller DJ firm. We aren't looking to train our next group of
interns at your wedding or have more entertainers than you have guests.
We're good with four professionals that each have experience at hundreds
Because we are a
small company, we can only entertain at a maximum of three events per day
(one per DJ, per day). Our industry-leading contingency plan allows
for one of our entertainers to sit at home or catch a movie with his
significant other while the rest of the team entertains at events.
So in case of an
emergency (which luckily has not yet occurred), you will have a guaranteed
professional "Plan B" waiting to relieve or assist your deejay. And
because we provide our clients with secure, industry-leading online
wedding planner software, our other DJs can access your music
requests, special songs, and even the original contract from anywhere they
have an Internet connection.
How else can Bay
Deejays help you during your wedding reception? Not only can our
deejays make professional announcements, deliver flawless introductions,
"read your crowd" on the dance floor to make the best song selections, and
beat-mix music for a non-stop soundtrack to your event, but we can also
think outside the box and anticipate your needs and the actions and
expectations of your other wedding vendors. We work as a team with
your photographer, caterer, videographer, minister, and other hired staff
to ensure everyone is on the same "page" before commencing with any major
event, dance, introduction, etc. In most cases, we've probably
worked at your venue and with your other vendors, but if not - we'll take
the extra step of contacting your other vendors and introducing ourselves
and even completing a pre-wedding site-visit for locations or venues that
we have not been to before.
Event management is
a skill that is not easily trained to a "rookie" within a six or
twelve-month timeframe. You need to have the experience of hundreds
of weddings, of dozens of different cultural events at those weddings, and
of the distinct talent and nuances of the other vendors in the Baltimore /
Washington Area to be able to claim that you can manage the flow of an
event in addition to the responsibilities the disc jockey already holds.
What good is your
world-class photographer if your deejay decides to play the
Father/Daughter Dance while he or she is taking sunset shots with some of
your cousins? Our entertainers (tactfully) assist you by keeping key
activities to your pre-set timeline while providing you with the
flexibility needed to relax and enjoy the most joyous occasion of your
We also provide many
of the services of a wedding coordinator at no extra charge to you.
Looking for a photographer that shoots in a photo-journalistic style?
We know someone. Need a recommendation for the best cake bakery?
We can help with that as well. We don't do this instead of providing
great entertainment - we do it for your benefit in addition to our
role as your professional disc jockey and emcee. And we do it
without receiving kick-backs or commissions for the recommendations.
So how can you be
sure you're hiring the perfect wedding DJ? First, choose one of the
only firms in Maryland that books only weddings. Then, review the
public reviews of past clients on sites such as
Wire. Finally, take the positive opinions of industry leaders
such as the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club,
The Tidewater Inn,
The Sheraton Baltimore, and
Tie Video, all of which refer Bay Deejays to their own clients.
Okay, this is starting to sound good... what happens next?
So if you have read
all about us, and checked to confirm that we
are available for your
event, let's review the next steps in the booking process:
TIMELINE OF ACTIVITIES
Unless otherwise directed, we will return your availability request by
email message. This is out of respect that our clients live busy
lives and may not be able to accept phone calls to discuss wedding details
while at work. If you'd prefer we call instead of email you, just
let us know in your inquiry. In our initial message we will confirm
our availability, advise which disc jockey(s) is/are available and
provide a price quote based on the details you provide to Bay Deejays.
We'll exchange a few emails and set up your initial DJ meeting location.
After your initial contact, you will work exclusively with your DJ until
the last dance of your wedding!
Our first meeting with a
prospective clients takes place at a location convenient and "neutral" -
usually a neighborhood coffee shop or restaurant of your choice.
This meeting allows everyone to get to know each other to ensure the
client "clicks" with the DJ. It is important to choose a DJ with
similar personalities, knowledge of the type of music you are looking for,
and a style that suits you. You'll leave this meeting with a sample
contract, online planner login, your DJ's personal contact information and
up to two full weeks to make your no-pressure decision.
Follow-Up Emails/Calls/In-Person Meetings
If you do book Bay Deejays, we are here to assist you with all of
your wedding planning needs. We are available by phone, Skype video chat, email messages, or
in-person meetings to help you prepare for your big day. Depending
on how far in advance you booked your event, the length and frequency of
these events will vary. Typically, meetings and communications pick
up in the 2-3 months leading up to your wedding, but we're here to help
any time you have a question or concern.
Phone Call, Video Chat, or In-Person Appointment
A final details meeting is a great way to codify your plans,
rehearse the pronunciation of your bridal party members and ask any last
minute questions. It is also the time we will review your music
requests, special dances, and event timeline. This meeting can also
be held in-person (based on DJ availability), by phone or Skype video chat, whichever is most convenient for
