@BeachBride2014: My DJ charges $1600 for reception and ceremony without any lighting, so $1,190 is a great deal, especially since they are doing both with lighting and you love their work!

We are paying 850 for one DJ, 7 hours, dance lighting.

But when we were shopping around the prices went from 600 to 3500. 1190 sounds reasonable.

I think it’s reasonable. We paid $1200 for four hours, and that didn’t include any lighting. Granted, that’s for one of the highest-rated DJs in our area, but…I still say that’s pretty reasonable for the amount of time and the products and services included.

@BeachBride2014:  I’m in Westchester county, NY, and my DJ was $2000 AFTER I negotiated with him! That included the ceremony and reception from 4pm-11pm but no uplighting. Some DJ’s are just really in demand and can command that kind of pricing I guess. If you found one you love, and feel really good about, and its still workable with your budget, I say go for it.

The DJ’s in my area have been around 8 or 900 with 1 dj, no uplighting, and with nothing fancy.  I found one at a bridal show the other day with 6 hours of play, and uplighting we are looking at about 800.00 to 1000.00 so I don’t think that is to bad.

Some of the ones I found wanted like 800 JUST for uplighting!

@BeachBride2014 Mine is $1200, this includes ceremony, cocktail hour and reception until 1am. So basically 3:00-2am. It includes MC’ing, use of 3 wireless microphones, and a small light show.

I think yours sounds reasonable. and if you like them you should book them! Music is something everyone remembers at a wedding. Does that price include MC’ing? My package was originally $1600 but I got it for cheaper because I am in an ‘off season’., you are in May so where I live that is considered off season aswell, perhaps you could haggle a bit of a deal because of that?
