I have never been to a wedding so I’m kind of confused. My wedding schedule is 1hr ceremony, 1hr cocktails, 4hr reception, all at the same facility. The entertainment package my fiancé wants will give us up to 8hrs photographer and videographer, and 4hrs dj. My question is, is this a normal package? If the dj is only around for 4hrs I’m assuming that’s just the reception, but what about the ceremony music? What do people do about that? And also does cocktail hour normally include music?

Cocktail hour usually includes music. Most people get separate ceremony musicians (but I suppose you could use the same dj if you just want recordings and not live music.)

Like Joy2011 said some people choose to get live music for the ceremony…I’m not. So I am just having my dj play my music choices during the ceremony. Since your package is 4 hours you should be able to just pay for the additional time for the ceremony since it is only 4 hours that you are getting in the package. It is probably different than just an individual dj package too since yours includes photo and video. I am having separate vendors for those things, but I know my best friend had video included in her dj package too so I am sure if you just ask about the music for the ceremony and the cocktail hour you will be able to work something out, but it sounds like it will be additional….

I’m doing a similar package. Unlimited photographer, videographer, 4 hours limo and 4 hours for DJ. I need this since I’m planning long distance… Making my life much easier. I was able to pay for an additional hour for the ceremony, no problem. It’s nice to be able to deal with one contact person.
