Generally speaking, Brides-to-be do most of the wedding organising and have never booked a DJ before, and at some point may think "I need a DJ for my wedding" and will then look for a wedding mobile disco.
There are literally hundreds of DJs out there in many shapes and sizes (including friends and colleagues) and to help you appreciate the difference between a professional wedding DJ and one who is certainly not (***sometimes refered as a "Cowboy" )...please see the table below with a few scenarios and points for you to think about before you consider your Wedding DJ/mobile disco hire as not all DJs are the same.
