Can I Have A Friend DJ My Wedding?

Planning an affordable, yet elegant wedding requires striking a careful balance between outsourcing what needs to be outsourced and doing yourself what you can realistically take care of on your own. For some people, wedding music can become one such do-it-yourself project—especially if you happen to have a friend who knows a thing or two about DJing. Not only can this save you money, but you’ll probably have more control over the music that plays, since you and your fiance(e) can prepare all the playlists yourselves ahead of time and then just hand them over to your friend. But before you enlist your friend’s help in DJing your wedding, here are some important questions to consider.
