$750 for 5 1/2 hours.  This includes the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.  He is also throwing in a light show.

We’re contracted for 5 hours (looking to up it to 5.5) at $950. This includes emcee duties, but does not include lighting or equipment, as they are already set at the venue. To be honest, it still feels like we’re getting a good deal. He’s really responsive, takes his job seriously, and has had some really useful suggestions about the reception in general.

$750 for like 8-9 hours, crazy uplighting, really neat LED lights, etc. But he’s a friend of mine from elementary school. I think we’re getting a really good deal.

$1595 for DJ, $850 for photobooth and $950 for uplighting – same outfit is doing all three so we saved a couple of bucks for bundling them.

Our DJ was $450, but he’s a friend of a friend so he gave me a great deal. His rates and packages usually start at $700.
