Scratch Weddings is like cake tasting, but for your wedding DJ! #Sponsors#DJ#music July 10 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Scratch Weddings is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Choosing a DJ was one of the hardest things I had to do for my wedding. My one requirement was that they "weren't cheesy." Sadly, "cheesy" is such a subjective term, and I wound up with a DJ who was, indeed, of the cheese class. That's where our sponsor Scratch Weddings would have saved me some embarrassment. Since its founding in 2002, Scratch has built the largest national team of DJs who entertain guests at thousands of weddings, events, tours, and even music festivals each year. Love reggae music? Punk? Indie? A blend of bluegrass and pop? Whatever your particular musical preference, Scratch Weddings will match you with the perfect wedding DJ. Scratch is not only super convenient for our fabulous offbeat couples (crazy music tastes represent!), but the way they've set up their biz to weed out the cheese is pretty fantastic. Scratch puts all of its DJs through a 10-step screening process to ensure that everyone they recommend is highly skilled, highly professional, and loves to spin weddings. Then Scratch provides you with a choice of DJs who are matched to you through several different criteria including personal taste, style, and musical interest. Then you get to ultimately choose which one you feel is right for you — awesome DJ cake tasting! No matter which Scratch DJ you chose, it helps to know that every single one is an expert at song selection, mixing and blending, reading the crowd, building energy on the dance floor and, ultimately, entertaining your guests of all ages and cultures. Which is what an offbeat wedding party is all about! Find your cheese-less musical match in "practically any location in the United States" on the easy at Scratch Weddings right now.

Reply Hi! Your comment about cheesy djs made me laugh out loud and yes it is totally subjective. Haven't seen anything like this over here in the UK. Always interested as I have a wedding related biz over here. Glad I found you and off to read something else that caught my eye … the 'wedding porn' tab!!! Reply I checked into them, but they don't offer DJs in the central Florida area. Oh well… Reply Offbeat Bride, thank you so much for the shout out! We love the creativity and quality of your blog!

Reply Went to an amazing lesbian wedding on Sunday, they're very close friends of ours, however they're also our YOUNGEST friends, so to play kool & the gang and save a horse ride a cowboy, fine songs but really really not them… made me wonder if their dj's even saw their song list, because we'd discussed acoustic versions of rock songs… I'm burning a cd and telling my dj to pay attention or I have vinyl at home I can work with. Reply I wish there was something like this in the UK! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
