But I can’t guarantee anything.
First things first: I am extremely proud of my staff (and myself) for all the great reviews we received last year. We went from 640 reviews last year at this time to 900 today. But more importantly we maintained a perfect 5.0 average. If anyone ever tells you a company can’t provide quality and quantity at the same time, you let them know Elite does it year in and year out. So I tip my cap to my hard working staff and I thank the brides and grooms who take the time to go on Wedding Wire after their big day to give us a review. Our couples (just like everyone else) are busy and I’m sure they have better things to do. But they loved us so much they went out of their way to offer a review and that means a lot.
Here’s the blatant truth about this award though: There no longer seems to be any criteria for getting this award. Over 200 DJs in New Jersey alone were given the Couple’s Choice. 7 years ago when Wedding Wire first began giving this out (it was called The Bride’s Choice back then) there were 20 DJs in New Jersey who received it. That’s quite a jump in just seven years. So while I am proud of getting the recognition I also feel like the only way to make it mean much is to say this:
That’s the exclusive part. By my count only 11 companies in the state of New Jersey can say that. Which means we have figured out a way to combine quality, quantity AND longevity. And if you’re looking for someone to entertain your family and friends at your wedding, aren’t those traits a pretty good place to start? They prove we do a great job, we’ve been doing a great job for years and years AND we’ve got the size and strength to be doing this for years to come.
