Final Indian Wedding Details For Your DJ

You’re finally there. After months of planning your Indian wedding, you’re in the final stretch. This article is a quick reference for the final Indian wedding details for your DJ. We recommend working on the DJ venue set up details no later than 1 month before you wedding weekend. There are a lot of moving parts and people. You might be working with a day-of coordinator, who’s connecting with your vendors and the venue. And the venue has their own in-house banquets and AV team that they’re working with. So the sooner things are taken care of, the better. 

For the music, items you might still be figuring that out 1-3 weeks before the wedding. The sooner, the better.
