When to book a wedding DJ

It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be a bit of a daunting task. After all, you want to make sure that your big day goes off without a hitch, and that means finding the perfect DJ to help make it all happen. So, when is the best time to book a wedding DJ?


The short answer is: as soon as possible. Many DJs book up months in advance, so if you’re looking for someone specific, it’s important to start your search early. Some DJs get booked up really far in advance. At the time of writing this article, it is 2022 and I already have bookings for 2024 – this should give you an idea of how far in advance some weddings are booked.

How long before should I book a wedding DJ?

You are probably looking for more exact answer to the question: When should you book your wedding DJ? The answer is: 12-15 months before the day of the wedding.

Having said that, I am still getting clients emailing me for dates as soon as 2-3 months time. Most of these I have to turn down due to already being booked, but every now and again, there is one that I can do.

So, if you’re reading this and your wedding is in less than a year, don’t panic quite yet. There are still some talented DJs out there who may have open dates. But, don’t wait too long; if your dream DJ is already booked for your date, you’ll be stuck scrambling to find someone else.
