We are paying $795 for our DJ.  It inlcudes 4 1/2 hours of coverage, plus a separate set-up for the ceremony.

Ours was $600 for 4 hours. We also provided a meal for them. They served as our DJ/Emcee for the reception only.

We were going to pay $200 for out DJ, but he is someone we kinda know. He has been unresponsive to phone calls and emails though, so we are going to go with a preloaded iPod instead for $150. Our venue already has sound equipment that we can use and the company that is loading the iPod has a lot of experience and great customer service. They also have a DJ service, but we decided we really don’t need a DJ for our group. We can announce things ourselves, if needed, and if anyone wants to do a toast, they can also announce it themselves. We are only having 50 guests, so that shouldn’t be a problem, and our planner has offered to help out with this too, if needed.

Wow…ours is $200 an hour.  We’re doing 5 hrs plus adding another $200 for lighting, so $1200.  It’s hard to find anything below $1000 in San Diego.

Wow…ours is WAY more expensive!  We are paying $1800 for our dj, but we are booking the owners of the company.  So we will have a husband and wife team as our dj.  They have 30 years experience, which was a great comfort.  They can basically function as our DOC if anything were to go wrong.

Oh, and the price include 5.5 hours of service, including all set up and clean up.  They also throw in a quick little video from the reception for us.

I’m paying $1895.00 for 6 hours of DJ and a photobooth. The price for 4 hrs of DJ services was $895.00. The company I’m using isn’t the cheapest but also isn’t the most expensive.

Our DJ is $2050 for the reception, ceremony and uplighting. It’s a lot, but they are awesome and music was one of our top 3 most important things.

I’ve seen few comments about having pre-loaded iPod. Do you give a list of songs, and they load them for you on your iPod? Or how does it work? Sorry, not familiar with that option but sounds intruiging

I paid $600 for my DJ…I went to college with him so I don’t know if that’s cheap or not because I knew him but everybody LOVED him! It was like a straight club at our reception! but that could be because he’s a regular DJ not a “wedding” DJ…

and that included 6 hours +setup and he emceed our reception…
