FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why hire a DJ when I can rent a sound system and use a iPod?
A survey done by the St. Louis Bride and Groom magazine found these very interesting stats:
1. 72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.
2. Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment.
3. During wedding planning, brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site. Entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
4. When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment.
5. 65% of couples that chose a band to entertain at their wedding said, if they had it to do over again they would have chosen a DJ.
No iPod can monitor, program and control the flow of your event the way a truly experienced DJ can.
Do you offer international services?
Yes. Oras Washington Entertainment does travel internationally.
Is your service LGBT+ approved?
Absolutely. Oras Washington Entertainment caters to the LGBT culture community.
How will you dress at my wedding?
I’ll be wearing attire fitting for the event. Of course, in most of my weddings I’ve dressed in the usual slacks/dress shirt and tie, but there have been casual weddings where the bride and groom actually preferred me in jeans and a polo shirt. Hey, no matter how you’d like me to dress for your occasion you’ll still get the same professional service you deserve.
How are your payments handled?
I require a 25% deposit upon signing the contract. Payments can be in the form of cash, check Major CC via Square or Paypal. The remainder of the balance is to be paid 3 days before the event date. We accept Visa, Master Card, Am Ex, and Discover.
Do you provide a contract & are you insured?
A written detailed contract is provided to ensure both parties are protected. Oras Washington Entertainment is also insured with a $1,000,000 dollar liability policy and a certificate can be provided if needed. More venues are starting to require this from vendors, so make sure your DJ is properly insured.
