I used DJ Bijan for my wedding at the Marriott Casa Magna June 25th for the reception.
Overall Rating: ----F----
I corresponded with DJ Bijan through email for my upcoming wedding, he like a list of your favorite songs and then he likes to fill in the rest. We gave him a list that included our first dance, and some must plays during dinner and during dancing. I also included the absolute "Please do not Play". Our First dance was Frankie Valli " Can't take my eyes off you" which is a very special song to us. As the music started up we quickly realized that it was some modern remake of the song and wasn't even the original singer, which immediately upset me but I set my emotion aside and tried to enjoy my wedding. As soon as we finished our first dance, he for some reason announced that we were going to cut the cake over the mike ( We had not even eaten dinner???) I looked across the way completely confused and starting to get pissed off, but I was still trying to go with the flow and not let it ruin my wedding. Finally we set down to dinner and started to realize he was playing our dancing songs while we were all sitting eating, It took be about 5 minutes to realize he was playing the list we gave him in order from top to bottom, not paying attention to what was dinner and dancing music. The whole time he just sat there like a zombie letting the whole playlist go not paying attention. You could tell everyone of our guests were confused when all the fun dancing songs were being played while we were eating?? I sent over my step dad to ask DJ Bijan what was going on? He apologized and said he was sorry and would try to fix it, Finally I'm starting to loose my temper when after my step dad spoke to him, he played 2 songs back to back that were on my "Absolutely Please Don't Play" List. This was the final straw, I felt like I should have just brought my ipod, at least then I would have been able to dance to the right songs. The music was so bad, we ended the reception 1 hour early and told DJ Bijan we didn't need him anymore for the night. It was devastating, I wanted to be able to enjoy the reception and have some fun at my wedding instead we ended it, only got to dance to maybe 3 songs including our first dance and sat with our guests the rest of the night by the pool. I would caution future brides when booking DJ Bijan, his prices were good but I would have rather payed more money and have been able to enjoy my reception
