We are paying $850 for 5 hours because we want them there during dinner to play background music.  He charges $750 for 4 hours and $100 for every extra hour.  We thought this was pretty reasonable.  But we are in Kansas. New Jersey may be more expensive.

I am also a South Jersey (Camden County) bride and the lowest I have found so far is $595 (the highest has been $750).  We’d like to find someone to do our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the same site.  If you don’t mind me asking, who are you leaning towards hiring?

We are paying $700 in MA. He usually charges $800, but he said he has a “soft spot” for same sex couples.

$525 for 5 hours here in Kentucky 🙂

But I got quotes from $200 to $1250… we just decided to go with someone we know does a great job and our friends have used previously.

We are paying $700…I was really impressed after we met with our DJ and I’m happy we went with her. The company is located near West Chester, PA, but I am sure they do weddings in South Jersey too. PM me if you’re interested and I can share the name/phone number with you!

We paid $700 for a DJ that did our ceremony and reception.  So a total 7 hour of working time with a three hour gap in between ceremony and reception.  He offered the video screens and lighting in that package, but the videos made it feel kind of like a highschool dance to me, so I declined.

I’m going to try to use the same DJ that did my sister’s wedding. The company is one of the best rated and has been around for a long time.  The rate in 2009 was $500 for 5 hrs in southern Oregon. I’m finding everything to be very reasonable in that part of the country which is awesome!

Central FL, paying $750 for the night, only 1 set-up. Didn’t know him so I didnt get any discounts but he was a top-ranked DJ per all the wedding sites I visit. Lets hope!!

i paid $500 for 3 hours of coverage at my bonfire on the beach. he only charged $50 more than my resort was and at least i read good reviews on him. not sure if he cut me a deal or not because he was already in Jamaica with his equipment for another wedding…and he was my photographer’s husband.  i actually hired him like a week before my wedding!
