I first learned about Admit One at a bridal expo I went to with my sister in law when she was planning her wedding three years ago. I was so impressed by their services offered and professionalism that I sought them out this year when I was planning my own wedding. We attended the tour of the facility which is in Naperville and we live in Chicago, but the drive was worth it. We loved everything they had to offer. We got to hear the sound quality of their equipment and see the various lighting options. One of the best things about working with Admit One was the "Meet the DJ Night". We got to meet maybe 12-15 of the DJ's and ask them questions. This was incredibly valuable to us. While all of the DJ's we met that evening were great, we felt a very strong rapport with Josh. We spent a lot of time talking to him about why he loves being a DJ to examples of how he was able to contribute to special moments of past weddings he worked. We felt he genuinely cared about making the day special for every couple that he worked with. We selected Josh as our DJ and he made the process very easy. We had a few telephone meetings with him to go through all the details and he helped us strategically figure out the timing of the evening. He was able to keep the energy flowing on the dance floor, but knew exactly the right moment to throw in a slow dance. Planning a wedding is extremely stressful, but having vendors you can trust makes all the difference. We loved working with Josh and Admit One and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ.
Loved this place from day one! Greg spent hours with us answering all of our questions and getting to know us as a couple. We decided I. The first fewminutes that we wanted Admit One because they were so personable. We were able to meet all the DJs at the meet the DJ night ( kind of like speed dating for meeting DJs). We were able to choose from a plethora of awesome DJs that night and it turns out that the one we wanted was available for our special day. We wanted our DJ to do our ceremony as well and Greg did a beautiful job. He was so meticulous when it came to making sure everything was perfect! He met with us face to face right before our big day and went over every detail. I never worried about my DJ ( my photographer was a different story). When the day finally arrived, Greg arrived early and was nothing but professional. Not only was our ceremony more beautiful than I had ever imagined, but our reception was poppin' and people are still calling it the best party they've been to and it has been almost two years! We liked the CustomerService so much, we decided to get a photo booth as well. The photo booth was a huge hit and Admit One made us our own personal keepsake album that we were able to take home that night! Admit One was worth every penny! They are organized and take the time. I highly recommend their DJ and photo booth services because of their top notch customer service and their quality staff.
Admit One DJs is a fantastic company to go with. You book their services and then attend a Meet the DJ night where you meet and greet with various DJs and tell the staff who your favorite 3 are that you met with. Within a week we were called by Josh, who happened to be our most favorite. He was so friendly and knowledgable, and we were very excited he was chosen! He called me (bride) about a week before the wedding to discuss a timeline, introductions, and song list. We had a great conversation, and I felt much more at ease after we spoke. He listened to what we wanted and then gave us excellent advice. I even asked him to read a short toast to my late father since I would have been too emotional, and he said he was honored to read it for me. During the wedding, he was playing my songs I wanted in addition to his own that kept the dance floor going all night. So many guests complimented him to us and said he looked like he really loved his job as he was dancing behind the DJ table with us :) Josh is awesome, and I would definitely choose him all over again!
I want to start of by saying that I have signed a contract with Admit One but have not yet chosen a DJ. This review is meant to be informative about the overall process for those still searching for a DJ. When we met our Admit One consultant, we were pleased with the overall feel of the company. There is one thing that is adding additional stress though. At the time of signing the contract, Admit One could not give us a date for the Meet the DJ night (where you actually pick/rank your DJ), but did say it would be held on a Thursday. I have a very hectic schedule and was anxiously awaiting the date. Tonight I received an email with the date (which was a Sunday) and of course, I will be out of the country which is frustrating considering I chose flights that avoided Thursday travel. From my current understanding, there are weeks to a month between each meet the DJ night. I hate pushing this off as I want to check it off my list. So thus far, Admit One has only added stress to the wedding planning process. Personally, I feel this is an area where the company could improve. I don't know all the details that go into planning a Meet the DJ night and I'm sure it's a lot of work. If there was a list of dates at the time of our initial meeting, I could have picked a date and avoided this unnecessary stress. Will update with resolution.
Process was very easy start to finish. They explained everything thoroughly at our first meeting and we booked with them that night. Loved the meet the DJ night to talk with all the DJs and picked out top 3- we got our top 1. Liam was great, only need to do a few chats before the wedding to discuss things, but everything went smoothly. We also did the photo booth with them which was great as well, only thing was I paid extra for props, but there were no props brought- pretty disappointing as the props are the fun part of photo booths.
One of my favorite vendors that we used for our wedding! I absolutely loved the fact that we were able to choose our DJ through "Meet the DJ" night. It was so nice to know that we were able to pick someone who we really liked and got along with. We had Josh for our wedding and he did an amazing job!
EVERYONE at our wedding gave us compliments on our DJ. It was very important to us to have a great DJ at our wedding. Additionally, Admit One was one of our favorite vendors too. They really have weddings down to a science. From creating a great atmosphere to meet and select from a wide range of DJ types to the art of getting people on the dance floor without being overbearing. Could not have been happier!
When you first walk in, the office is amazing. Very professional and well kept. The bathrooms are very clean too, one of my pet peeves is when I go someplace and the restrooms are unkept. I must admit, I was almost certain they were going to be way out of my budget. I was happy to be wrong, we spent about $1200 and recieved many upgrades, much less than other places who didn't offer as much. Our DJ Matt was very professional and hit all the right songs at the right time with our crowd. Ask for Matt, he isn't always at the DJ nights but we knew of him through my cousins wedding. He said he limits his weddings to about 20 per year and it's typically by requests friends and family from past customers .
Outstanding service! Couldn't be happier with Admit One DJs. Go there, check them out. You won't be disappointed. Meet the dj night was a great experience. You get to meet many dj's in one place. I did not want to have to drive around to multiple meetings to replicate this like I would have with other services. I did get my 2nd choice, didn't matter though because I was happy with all three dj selections. On my wedding night I had complete confidence in everything that was promised to be done. Because of this, I was able to let go and enjoy myself. I firmly believe this was one of many reasons why I had so much fun.
We had a great experience with Admit One Deejay's. I appreciated the time they spent getting to know us, showing us the equipment and it does take some time but my husband and I really enjoyed what they had to offer. They are upfront with you about how much time the first meeting is, I think they said 90 minutes as a minimum but well worth it. They were very transparent with how the whole "how and why" in what they offer and extremely helpful with lots of great ideas and experiences to share. I particularly enjoyed their online portal to submit our song choices and details of what we expected throughout the night. The most important thing to us was we both wanted everyone dancing, having a great time and Admit One definitely delivered!
We went in for a consultation, where we were kept for several hours while the sales person talked over our application and their website portal with us. They eventually showed us a demo of the equipment, which is pretty much standard; what you would expect from a DJ. The sales person then offered us a price which was a bit high, but we offered to think it over for a couple of days and the sales person offered to call us the following Monday. I reached out to them to see if they could be a bit flexible with the price and was called back by a sales supervisor who told me that the price would actually be higher than I was originally quoted. I was put off by that and the fact that the sales person, who had no real respect for our time, never even called us back, so we will be going with another service. Ultimately I think they would been a gamble, since you don't know who your DJ will be until a few weeks before.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DJ! We had Kyle as our DJ and he was great! Admit One lets you do a "Meet the DJ Night" which allows you to meet DJs within the company. Our DJ knew what music to play and had everyone dancing all night. He was very professional and played everything we wanted. He took the time to get the announcements correct, all the equipment was working and it was a great time. I was told to get this DJ from a friend and it was worth it!
Our DJ did an awesome job! We truely appreciate all Admit One did to make our big day special for us. The consultation takes quite a while though be prepared for a few hours of time to get the contract signed.
I give Admit One DJ's 3 stars. Barely 1 for the office, and 5 for my actual DJ Affan so I'm averaging it out. Everything leading up to getting our actual DJ was a nightmare. We paid upfront and then didn't get an invite to the Meet the DJ night, even though I had been asking for months when ours would be. One of the 3 times I emailed them I got the most unprofessional response I've ever received from a business. Then there was some "mistake" with the invites excuse when we didn't get the invite to our scheduled meet the DJ night. So when I hadn't heard for another couple weeks, I reached out and we were allowed to come to the event. After that, we had our choice of like 10 DJs at the night and still ended up with our 3rd choice. Luckily Affan worked out and was a ton of fun to work with. He kept he party going all night and I have no complaints about him as our choice.
Our dj was awesome and did a great job of playing our favorite songs and keeping people on the dance floor!
Josh just did our wedding this past weekend and he exceeded our expectations. I had several people tell me it was one of the best DJs at a wedding they had ever been to! He was very accommodating and a great person to deal with. I would highly recommend him!
I love Admit One DJS! The whole staff is so professional and really care about your experience. We chose Liam for our June 17th wedding and he did an amazing job. Liam keeps the crowd dancing and has contagious fun energy level. He is awesome.
Don did a fantastic job at our wedding! We received many compliments on our reception and I believe that is largely due to Don.
I'm very happy we went with Admit One for our DJ. We had Will. He went above and beyond to make the day go smoothy, including showing up early, coordinating with our other vendors, and picking great music to keep the party going. He was professional and personable and would chose him again if we had to!
Their process for choosing their DJ is very fun and personal. Once you have booked them, you get invited to a meet the DJ night where you are able to talk with their available DJs for the night of your wedding and give your top 3 choices. I do wish we would have gotten more advice on how to choose one and what to ask and/or look for. We did get our first choice so we were excited about it. I spent a lot of time on our cocktail and dinner music choices. I uploaded and labeled every single song because they all had special meaning, I played the wedding songs of all the married couples in attendance. Or I wanted to at least. There were also some other special things that needed to happen during the reception and I was sure to explain in detail and make it easy as possible on their online portal. I received a call from our DJ a few days prior and spoke for about an hour about what I had filled out on their questionnaire. He kept saying that he didn't even see the full print out yet and that they would give it to him when he went to get his equipment, and then he would see all of the notes. I was nervous that he wasn't looking at my notes and special requests as we were speaking but he assured me that it would be great and it wouldn't be a problem. I will say our DJ went above his job requirements and helped our staff move chairs after the ceremony before dinner, that was very nice of him and my husband and I appreciate him stepping in when he noticed it needed to be done. He even offered my husband a ride back when he saw him looking for our car at the end of the logic. Very nice guy. He was very friendly with the guests and was upbeat during our announcements, even wore a Cubs tie for us as he knew we were big on sports. However, he did ruin some pretty important moments. Our garter toss was something we specifically talked about and he made it extremely awkward as he didn't do what we had requested. His mess up left my groom up my skirt way too long. I desperately tried to cue him to change the song, and I could see him searching for it as if it wasn't ready to be played. There were also some must play songs and special moments that got messed up, and times where the dance floor kept clearing due to song selection. I didn't have a big crowd, but they were a dancing crowd and it would've been nice to keep the same music on that kept the people dancing! I realize that no one really knows about all what went wrong but me, but these were still things I wanted and expected. Nothing ever goes perfect, in fact things went pretty awful at my wedding, and our DJ did do his best to roll with it all. The office however was not so pleasant when I tried to explain my frustration and disappointment over certain things after the wedding, not what I was expecting since they had been so great up until that point. That is the main reason for my 3 star review, the way they handled my concerns about the services I received, or didn't receive, was less than satisfactory to say the least. My advice to anyone that has booked or is looking to book with this company is to really, REALLY talk to your DJ during meet the DJ night. It's easy to get caught up on the fun and party atmosphere of it all, but a DJ can make or break your wedding. Don't spring for the extras like the subwoofers, pager, or lights. You're already paying enough and it isn't worth the extra money, trust me.
Choosing Admit One as our DJ company was one of the best decisions we did for our wedding! We were able to come in with several other couples with wedding coming up for a fun night with food and drinks to meet and talk with all of their DJ's to see which one we thought best suited our venue and what we wanted out of a DJ for our big day. We were fortunate to get our top pick; DJ Don! DJ Don made our June 11th reception at Emerson Creek one we will never forget! He was absolutely amazing keeping our guests entertained all night long! We even got an idea from Don on Meet the DJ Night to do what we call Kiss Roulette! Each time the guests clinked their glasses we prepared a list of couples that had to kiss first and my husband and I then mocked. We and our guests loved this game and could not stop talking about it; as well as DJ Don's expertise. I can personally say once the dancing started I did not leave the dance floor! Thank you so much DJ Don for making our evening so special! You were awesome!
We loved Admit One from our first meeting. It got even better when we got paired up with our DJ, Josh. He was so easy to work with and communicate with. Our guests had a great time and the dance floor was packed all night. He played a great balance of music. He was very responsive If we needed something during our reception. Definitely did an awesome job!
Nate did an amazing job at my wedding this past Saturday. He kept everyone dancing all night. evetything was perfect
Our experience with Admit One was great from start to finish. We met with the owner for our first visit and really felt welcomed into their office. They definitely had answers to all of our concerns. Second, we attended a meet the dj night to choose which of the djs best fit our party style. Third, we met with our dj and knocked out specific details. The price was affordable and we really got a dance experience for what we paid, something we couldn't have diy'd. To flow with the changes in crowd takes a real talent and working on current quality equipment really made the sound perfect for our venue.
We cannot say enough good things about this company!! They offer so many unique services (pick your DJ night and the DJ pager) that they set themselves way head of the competition. Josh was our DJ and he was spot on with everything we requested, he made excellent suggestions and pronounced all the crazy Polish names in the wedding party great. He had a ton of energy and really kept the party going all night. My husband and I would highly recommend Josh and Admit One DJ's to anyone looking for a great company to work with!!
