Are you looking for the perfect New Hampshire wedding DJ, but not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered! As DJs serving New Hampshire and beyond, we have some pointers for finding the perfect person for your big day.
Having a good, professional DJ can be one of the most important parts of your wedding. You want someone fun and dependable, who can control the atmosphere through their music choices and personality during the event.
If you’re a bit nervous about finding a wedding DJ in New Hampshire, don’t be! Through a combination of word of mouth, online research, and social media scrolling, you will most likely discover several DJ options that fit the bill.
There are several things to look for in a wedding DJ, including their reputation, price, and their vibe. How you pick a wedding DJ will depend on what is important to you. Do you need them to be a master of ceremonies as well? Does the DJ know how to run extra touches like UpLighting?
Once you have several candidates, you can choose a New Hampshire wedding DJ that ticks all your boxes!
Before you go about finding a wedding DJ, have some ideas about what kind of party you want to throw. Do you want your DJ to play music during the ceremony? Are you planning on a string quartet during the cocktail hour?
Knowing what you want during your event can help you decide on a DJ. It will also help you figure out how long to book a DJ for your wedding. (Most wedding DJ packages are about 5-6 hours.)
The earlier you do this, the better! Start making these decisions early on in your planning process so you can start looking for DJs about a year in advance.
Ask for Recommendations
One of the easiest ways to find a wedding DJ is to ask your friends or family for recommendations. Did your cousin have a fantastic DJ at their wedding? Ask them who it was!
If you’ve attended a really fun New Hampshire wedding in the past, ask the wedding couple which DJ they used, and if they liked working with that company. If they did, chances are, you will too!
You can also ask your venue for DJ recommendations. The folks at your venue have probably seen a lot of weddings and know a) which DJs are in the area and b) which DJs both the venue and wedding couples have enjoyed working with.
As New Hampshire wedding DJs, we have great working relationships with our favorite NH venues!
Another way to find a wedding DJ is to search the Internet. You can simply do a Google search for wedding DJs in New Hampshire, or you can search wedding websites.
Sites like The Knot and Wedding Wire can help you search for wedding vendors, including DJs. Just enter your town and budget, and they’ll provide you with a list of possible DJs. These wedding planning sites also allow couples to rate and review their vendors so you can see which DJs in New Hampshire are ranked highly.
You can also search social media for DJs (though we don’t recommend only searching this way). By searching NH-related hashtags like #weddingdjnh, you can see who has a presence online and if you like their style.
Once you have found several options in New Hampshire, how do you pick a wedding DJ? We recommend making a list of potential DJs and then chatting with them. You can set up a meeting or attend an Entertainment Showcase like ours!
By interviewing possible DJs, you can get a sense of their personalities. The DJ must be able to control the room at your wedding, so you want to pick someone likable that you can trust.
Some things you may want to ask your DJs are:
- Are they insured?
- Do they have extra effects?
- How long have they been in the business?

Know Your Budget
One of the biggest factors when deciding on a wedding DJ is your budget. How much you can pay your DJ will automatically either limit or open up your options. Most wedding DJ packages vary in price, depending on time, expertise, or location.
Whether you found them online or through friends, by knowing what you want and how much you can pay, you’ll be able to narrow your search and find a New Hampshire wedding DJ that’s right for you!
