Bringing good music to weddings since 2010

FAQ

DO YOU TRAVEL?

We LOVE to travel and have smashed weddings from Scotland to Sri Lanka, Ireland to Italy, Manchester to Marrakech (and lots of places in between). We’d just need you to pay for accommodation and cover the travel costs. Whether you’re looking for a London Wedding DJ, a UK Wedding DJ or a Destination Wedding DJ, we’ve got you covered! 

WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR PRICES?

We have different rates depending on where and when an event is taking place. Drop us an email to info@weddingsmashers.com with all your event details and we can send you a quote.

WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?

To keep things simple, we have one package which includes all the basics needed for your party. We also have a whole host of fantastic extras that can be added to the package. 

For weddings and events further afield, we’d normally recommend that you hire equipment from a local supplier. This can be discussed with our team in more detail.

DO YOU ONLY PLAY WEDDINGS?

Absolutely not! We play all sorts of events from birthdays to corporate parties, Xmas shindigs to Bar-Mitzvahs. Check our homepage where we’ve listed some of the brands we’ve entertained (everyone from Warner Music to Google, MTV and The Old Vic Theatre!).

CAN WE CHOOSE OUR OWN MUSIC?

You certainly can! You can have as much or as little input as you wish, it’s your wedding! Our DJs can play anything from Rock n Roll to Northern Soul, Dad Rock to Mum Disco. Hip-Hop to Yacht Rock, Top 40 hits, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s Pop to House, D&B, Afro-Beat, Garage & Grime; if you can name it, hum it or dance to it, we can play it.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE OUR DJ?

We’d ask you to fill in a music request form so that we have a greater understanding about the music you love (and hate!). We’d then select the DJ that’s best suited to your taste and arrange a time for you to discuss the playlist with them in more detail.

DO YOU PLAY MUSIC FROM OTHER CULTURES?

100%! We’ve played many weddings from a multitude of cultures and welcome couples from every background. We love discovering music from all over the world and our DJs will happily mix any specified songs.   

DO YOU OFFER LIVE MUSICIANS?

You can create a DJ Live experience for your wedding by adding one or two of our fantastic musicians to accompany the DJ set. We have Saxophonists, Percussionists, Violinists & Horns available. 

We also have a list of bands we love to work with. Get in touch for more details. 

Looking for something extra special? We can’t promise Rihanna but we do have an awesome selection of Headline Acts who have rocked our parties since 2010!

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?

Yes, we have a contract and require a deposit of 50% of the total fee to reserve our services. 

DO WE NEED TO FEED THE DJ?

Yes, your DJ will require a hot meal before the set starts and suitable refreshments throughout the night. The DJ is responsible for bringing the ENERGY to your party so fuel is needed for the fire!

DOES THE DJ NEED TO TAKE BREAKS?

No, our DJs will play the entirety of the set without taking a break and can play for a maximum of 5 hours straight.

IS THE SET UP TIME PART OF THE DJ SET TIME?

No, the set up time happens before the DJ set and it takes approximately 1 hour.

WHEN DO YOU SET UP?

Standard set up takes place 1 hour before the party is due to start. We also offer an early set up service, which ensures all the equipment is set up and sound-checked before your guests arrive at the venue. This also allows you to use our PA during the day. 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

We have Public Liability cover for up to £10 million. We also have PAT test certificates.

HOW MUCH POWER IS REQUIRED FOR YOUR EQUIPMENT?

Here’s what you need to know if you’re having a marquee wedding and need a generator. 

Small set up (Speech Pack): 1x 13amp sockets, Power drain: 2000w/8 amps

Medium set up (Smash Pack): 2x 13amp sockets, Power drain: 4500w/19 amps

Large set up (Smash Pack + Subwoofers): 3x 13amp sockets, Power drain: 7500w/32 amps 

We require a separate power supply that isn’t supplying power for fridges, ovens, beer pumps, chillers etc as it interferes with sound quality. 

There are 2 ways of measuring power; sound wattage and power wattage! We’re talking POWER wattage here.
