Don’t forget to feed the DJ

Although not expected, it is appreciated when the happy couple feeds its vendors (photographers, videographers, wedding planners, DJ, etc.) at their reception. The majority of wedding vendors will have a request for a meal built into their contracts; however, in cases where a meal request isn’t specified by the wedding vendor, please don’t forget to feed the DJ 🙂

Vendors spend a lot of time on-site without breaks. In regards to DJs, if the DJ is providing their services for a ceremony (starting at 4pm) and reception (starting at 6pm), the DJ will generally be on-site setting up about 2 hours prior to the beginning of your ceremony (for a basic set-up), and will be working straight through to the end of the night with no breaks. If your reception runs until 1am, that would mean your DJ would be working on-site for at least 11 hours straight (not including travel time).

Please don’t forget to feed the DJ!
Thank you in advance!
