Before you book your Monterey wedding DJ

Keep these questions in mind when interviewing DJs for your wedding reception. And remember, experience and talent always factor into professional DJ pricing.

A playlist is great for a cookout or casual party, but this is your wedding day! A professional DJ will take your favorites and meld them into a seamless dance set. And your DJ does more than play music. An experienced wedding DJ is also a capable MC, making all your important announcements.
This is an event where experience truly matters – there are no “do-overs” when it comes to wedding entertainment. Additionally, DJs are the “personality” of your reception. You’ll want someone who matches your vibe as well as the occasion. Be sure to work with someone who understands your reception vision and can provide helpful guidance to make it happen.
DJs are a great resource for other entertainment options. Think uplighting, special effects, and entertainment like photo booths. Ask your DJ about what’s available. Bundling services saves time and money!

What to see and do in Monterey

Have out-of-town guests come to Monterey for your wedding or special event? Here’s a quick list of popular attractions and things to do, mouthwatering restaurants, and boutique shopping experiences to help them pass the time.

Cannery Row: Salinas native and American author John Steinbeck set many of his stories here, telling tales of one-of-a-kind characters. Today’s Cannery Row is a collection of waterfront hotels, restaurants, and shops. But be sure to take time to absorb the history and varied cultures of Cannery Row.

17-Mile Drive: This iconic coastal route between Carmel and Monterey offers striking views and places to stop along the way. While there’s a modest fee for cars, walkers, and bikers can experience this beautiful scenery on the Drive for free.

Fisherman’s Wharf: Your guests’ visit to Monterey isn’t complete until they’ve strolled the Wharf. It’s often possible to get a closer look at the marine life that inhabits the waters in Monterey Bay. And they’ll find a variety of shops and restaurants.

Monterey Bay Aquarium: This amazing aquarium has always been at the forefront of marine conservation. The oceanfront location provides a habitat experience, from sea otters to the seaweeds that sustain aquatic life.

First Awakenings: If you love breakfast, then put this one on the list. Hearty, all-American home cooking with fresh, quality ingredients. Open 7 days a week with outdoor dining.

Old Fisherman’s Grotto: Experience the freshest seafood on Fisherman’s Wharf. This restaurant, established in the 1950s and still owned by the same family, prepares theirs with international inspiration.

Fandango: Located in the heart of Pacific Grove, this fine dining establishment offers lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus inspired by European and Mediterranean cuisine. Enjoy fresh seafood or their signature rack of lamb.

Peter B’s Brewpub: This craft brewery elevates pub food by using locally sourced ingredients. Pet friendly. Enjoy an award-winning beer on the patio or by the fire pit. Located at 2 Portola Plaza.

The Feral Market: This is a shop with a sense of humor! You’ll find a little bit of everything at this eclectic boutique on Alvarado Street in front of the Portola Plaza Hotel.

Grand Bazaar: On Cannery Row, you’ll find a remarkable array of artwork, jewelry, and other beautiful items from Turkey. Take home a taste of Istanbul.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Gift Shop: If you have small children back home, you have to stop by the Aquarium’s Gift Shop and get the cutest little sea otter stuffed animal. And, of course, there are lots of other great gifts for everyone.

Cha-Ya: In the heart of Monterey you’ll find this peaceful shop that carries exclusive Japanese teas, gifts, and one-of-a-kind imports. Be sure to savor a cup of hot tea while you’re there.
