Choosing a DJ for an LGBTQ Wedding

Choosing a DJ for an LGBTQ Wedding

Planning a wedding is an exciting milestone in every couple’s journey. It’s a time to reflect on your love story and make decisions on how your big day should turn out. The perfect wedding DJ will create the right ambiance and keep the party going all night long.

At Adagio Djay Entertainment, we understand the interests of LGBTQ couples because we’re LGBTQ-owned. We know you deserve a memorable wedding celebration, so we curated this guide on how to choose a DJ for an LGBTQ wedding. Let’s get started.


Open-Mindedness and Inclusivity

When choosing potential DJs for an LGBT wedding, you should prioritize one that’s comfortable with all couples. They should also be supportive and eager to help you create lasting memories on your special day.



No two weddings are the same because the celebration is unique to the two individuals being celebrated. Your wedding guests are coming to share in your love story, and that’s what we want your music selection to reflect.

The perfect DJ for LGBTQ couples will take time to know your preferences so they can create a personalized music playlist for your wedding day. The DJ should be willing to guide you through the planning process. It ensures you pick the right songs and invites you to include any traditions, new or old.



While there’s nothing wrong with hiring an amateur wedding DJ, a professional can make all the difference in your wedding celebration. It’s advisable to look for wedding DJs with an excellent track record because they’re familiar with all of the details that go into facilitating a smoothly run event.

Additionally, they should have a complete sound system, including a backup plan if the equipment malfunctions. To avoid delays, they should arrive at the wedding reception venue in good time to test the set-up before the guests arrive. 

Professional wedding DJs carry liability insurance, which is something you shouldn’t skip. You want to ensure that the venue and your guests are safe if an accident occurs during the event. Although we’re not hoping that someone will get hurt on your wedding day, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor by asking the DJ to show you a valid and current insurance certificate.


Respect for Gender Identities and Pronouns

The DJ should be mindful of others’ pronouns, including their guests who may be members of the LGBTQ community. It creates an atmosphere of inclusivity when the wedding day arrives. And when everyone feels seen and respected, they are free to relax and enjoy the day.


Diverse Playlists

Music unites people of different ages and languages. So, your wedding DJ should have a large selection of music. 

Note that an LGBT wedding brings people from different backgrounds under one roof. As a result, the DJ should know how to mix music genres to accommodate the diverse musical interests of your guests without downplaying your preferences.  


References and Online Reviews   

Before hiring a DJ, you should request references so that you can hear from other LGBTQ couples whom they’ve worked with. The feedback provides valuable insight into the capacity and professionalism of the DJ. 

Also, read online reviews on social media sites, third-party review websites, and the DJ’s official website. This way, you’ll be sure of what you’re ordering vs. what you’ll get. 


Final Thoughts

Hiring the right DJ for your marriage is a critical step in your love celebration. Prioritize inclusivity, customization, and professionalism to ensure your special day truly reflects all that your union represents. 

Remember, your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you want to get it right. Don’t let a bad DJ ruin your moment. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.
