@Diddy41:  Sorry to hear that my dear. To be honest I am not sure on how much. Maybe 20%. 


I had DJ woes of my own, he came late…like a hour , ok so it was a long holiday weekend, it was raining, there was bad Toronto traffic and like 50% of the guest came late because of that. BUt he was supposed to be half an hour early at the latest, so if he was late it would have been better if he was half an hour late. He came the same time as 50% of my guest, and they were supposed to show up after. 

Second he played the wrong entrance song for my Dh and I at the reception. It was supposed to be upbeat, but instead he played the slower remix of the same song, so my DH decided to improvise and start dancing with me as our first dance (that was supposed to come later). So I ended up cancelling my first dance because “it already happened” (in truth the first dance song wasn’t special to us, we don’t have a “song”, but I was really looking forward to the fun upbeat entrance….pooh).

My DJ failed to bring the three pieces of music we had requested and that he’d promised to acquire for our processional in, our processional out, and our first dance. SUCH a fail. Luckily my DH thought the DJ seemed unreliable (he went incommunicado for the three days before the wedding that we were trying to contact him for confirmation that he got the songs) so my DH burned the three songs we absolutely wanted/needed on a CD and brought the CD to the wedding. I am so grateful he did that, because our wedding would have felt so different without our three special pieces of music. I’m actually glad our DJ didn’t return our calls, because it stirred my DH to action. We had practiced our first dance so much with the one song… and if the processional music was ‘Here comes the bride’ or Pachelbel or something, the wedding simply wouldn’t have felt as ‘us.’ And man, I would have been pissed and also sad. DH saved the day. We actually suspected the DJ was high at the wedding. Like out of his mind on cocaine high.

Sorry, threadjacked! In your case, I would want at least 25% of my money back. 50% would be better but I’d be surprised if he gave that much back. Sorry this happened to you. 🙁

DJ’s, man…

@Diddy41:  To me, it would be worth it to lose the refund just so I could post bad reviews anywhere I could.  He jacked stuff up and then after acknowleging his errors, he’s decided to go go back on his word.  Others need to be warned, just sorry it was at your expense.
