    Do you know your friend’s husband?  Meaning, is he responsible, etc.  Has he DJ’d before, etc.

    It sounds like there is a lot of uncertainty with the friend… which would make me lean toward the professional.

    If he hasn’t DJ’ed before, I’d be hesitant to have my wedding be his first gig. A bad DJ can really ruin a good party. On the other hand, get a great DJ and everyone will have a blast. I’d be scared to take the risk and would go with the professional.

    Although the friend option seems “friendlier,” the truth is that if a friend screws up, it can be really hard to confront them about the issue. At least with a professional the contract is purely business, which makes solving issues much easier since you’re paying for a service. Favors can be a lot harder to criticize.

    I would definelty see how it goes this weekend. If it goes well then I would totally consider it but there is more to the whole DJ thing that just playing songs. You have to be able to read the crowd and tell how to keep the party going. And the price you got quoted is excellent! We are paying almost that for 4 hours so I voted go pro. =)

    My FH’s cousin is a professional. He offered to dj at any amount that we wanted to pay him, but he has been unreliable. I have not been able to contact him about our songs, so we are going with a professional that we don’t know (We’ve been trying to call him for over a month). FH’s cousin reg. price was $700 and the professional said that he would do videography all day and dj for $2000. Now we have to fire family because he won’t answer our phone calls. I say go with the pro.

    I think a professional DJ would be best. Your friend’s husband won’t be able to enjoy the entire wedding, if he has to worry about the playlist and everything else, and like you stated, “what if he drinks to much?”, or forgets something. You wouldn’t want his actions or nonactions to get in the way of your now friendship.
