yikes! I know I’m in oregon but that seems like a lot. Do you have it in your budget if so go with what you want at the best price you can find!

Seriously, I think you could probably find a dj for under a thousand and hire someone to do lighting for $400 or so….But I’m in Iowa/Illinois so things may be cheaper here…

What part of SoCal are you in? There’s a great DJ company based in San Diego that does DJing and uplighting and they’re pricing is pretty reasonable. You might want to get a price quote from them. They’re called DJ Guy.

I used them and they did a great job. I’m not sure how much lower their pricing will be, but I feel like you should be able to get a pretty good deal from them. $1600 sounds like a lot for a dj with uplighting, but that just might be the average for Socal.

The uplighting cost depends on how many lights you need. We are using 40 lights which can subtly color change throughout the night (which was extra $) and a custom monogram – the cost is $1000 for all and this is supposedly "half-price" during a prepay special the DJ offered. So it’s about $20 per light and $200 for custom gobo monogram in Illinois.

I’m in the Chicago suburbs (and I looked for DJ’s downtown and in the burbs) and the average price was $800-$1200

$2500 seems like an awful lot!  I think you can probably find a much cheaper DJ that can rent lighting!

A good DJ in a major metropolitan area will charge at least 1000 for a wedding. Uplighting can range from 25 per light and up. If the DJ is using the latest remote controlled, battery powered LED lights, you can expect his cost to reflect that.
