When to hire a band, choir or DJ?

Before hiring DJs and musicians for the Big Day, it is always important to discuss and exchange information with the professionals. β€œIt’s worth signing a contract up to a year before. During this period, it gives you time to choose and spend some time quietly discussing what the couple wants during the event”, explains DJ NOVI.

It’s possible to postpone this stage a bit, but the more carefree brides need to keep in mind that, from two to three months before the date, all the songs for the wedding ceremony should be selected. β€œThis is the moment for the bride and groom to bring their suggestions. The more unique the event, the better,” says DJ NOVI.
