Playlists, requests, and backup plans: What to ask your wedding DJ

We've worked with lots of great DJs in our time, and finding the right one for you can be a really specific task.

It's not an easy job, but a great DJ can make your party with excellent tunes, good MCing, and not getting in the way of the festivities. Here are some questions we think you might want to ask your potential wedding DJs to see if they mesh with you.

Two brides bring the love to this Cincinnati wedding

Once you have duly admired Julie and Jennie's HUGE GRINS, you're welcome to peruse the rest of this Cincinnati wedding's loveliness. It was a small affair, with about 50 loved ones in attendance, but this laidback, breezy atmosphere is where it's at. Check out the adorable little ring bearer (and is that a tiny burlap messenger bag for the rings?); the brides' flowy, effortless style; and one bride serenading the other to tears (I'm dead). Also, really, one of the greatest, most stunned first looks I've ever seen.

Encourage spontaneous wedding singing as you walk down the aisle

Guests burst into song as Briavael and Nikki danced down the aisle after their ceremony, perfectly capturing the joy and festivity of the day. If spontaneous wedding singing on the way out of your own ceremony sounds like a winning idea, I suggest you follow Briavael and Nikki's lead and nudge the spontaneity along.

This eco-friendly wedding channels music festival love

Will and Heather turned their backyard in upstate New York into a mini music festival for their eco-friendly wedding last September.

Pretty much every imaginable element of this wedding was DIY — the dinnerware was recyclable bamboo, the food included locally grown organic veggies (with vegan options), even the bride's kickass dress and veil were DIY. That veil — my stars, I want one. And I want a castle to go with it.

Music and retro fashion abounds at Eris & Terrance's church wedding

This bride never thought she'd get married, so when she found the love of her life, they both knew it was going to be anything but traditional. Queue an amazing music theme with cassette tapes, vinyl, Air Jordans (including an Air Jordan cake!), and lots of retro details. Don't miss the paper flowers, boombox-carrying ring bearers, and mid-ceremony dance from the bride's sister.
