Ours is $750 for a total of 4.5 hours.  It includes music for outside ceremony and cocktail hour and inside music for reception.  Also includes a mic for the officiant.  We are getting a $100 discount for a Sunday.

Our DJ was a family friend so we got a bit of a deal, but we paid $500 for 5 hours. We weren’t interested in any lighting thoughh.

Ours is $975 for 6 hours. More than I probably wanted to spend, but that was before I realized how much they cost around here. =p

$600. The cheapest one that I found that was available for my date. I did get $100 for paying the same day I booked, so that was nice.

$950. That’s for about 6-7 hours, 3 completely seperate set-ups (ceremony, cocktail hour, & reception are in 3 different rooms), and a personal online website.

$1100 for 6 hours. About double what I was planning on spending, but they’re worth every penny!

Ours was $900 for six hours plus uplighting. I think this was about average in our area.

Everything is so expensive up here!
