- Wedding: September 2012
Okay.. heres the story. We are having a destination wedding hours away from where we currently live, and it will be out of state for most guests… anyways. I got a referral from a coworkers boyfriend for a DJ. He is a professional radio DJ in the town we live in, and I have heard him before. My friends boyfriend asked him if he would cut me a huge deal and we would pay for a hotel room. He said Yes, so for $600 plus a hotel room we would have a DJ. I asked when his next wedding is to go see him in action before I gave my deposit. He has lots of events, but doesnt have a wedding until May. Since it is just on the side business, as he does have a full time job. I know I was referred, and he has been in the business 20 years, ahhh It is just hard for me to make a decision.
Would you trust your referral espically for the price? the other quotes were extremely higher, from $1400 – $2200!!!! so I think its a STEAL!!!! total cost would be like $800 after the $200 hotel room, I am even getting the hotel venue listed in the contract so he cant say I have to have the hotel room at the venue we are getting marred because the cheapest room even with our discount is $350! He has been EXTREMELY nice to talk to on the phone and contacts me back very quickly.
What should I do? Book him – you will never find that kind of deal and he is a professional DJ….
or…. wait and look and see people in action and risk him booking your date?
Thanks in advance!
