We’re on the Dj task- and two DJ’s so far have informed us that in the quote, due to our hour drive time, there will be a $100 fee added on, also they are demanding that we purchase a room for the night for the DJ coming out. To me that just seems crazy, but I haven’t been in the DJ shopping business for long, and our married friends didn’t have a DJ. Bee’s im going in blind, and not liking what I’m finding!
Thanks so much! (ps- the wedding is in Mi if that helps any).

@stacie7777: I think the room is a bit excessive (unless your wedding is ending late or something), but the travel fee isn’t unheard of. I know my photographer charges $1 per mile if it’s over 40 miles from her studio, but both my photographer and my DJ are within a 30 min drive.

There aren’t any djs in Flint? or Lansing? Where are you finding these companies that the drive to Clio is too far?

My Fiance is in a band that plays a lot of weddings. If it’s something that requires travel, a hotel room is fairly standard. Food is standard period. They don’t charge for drive time, but I know a lot of vendors will charge a travel fee.

Can you find anything closer or is this the one your heart is set on? I don’t really know anything about the hotel fee i know traveling fees are standard.
