I just want to have an idea of what people have paid for their DJ. We are scheduled to meet with one that costs $600, another that costs $750, and another that costs $900. Is it worth it to spend a lot on this? Thanks.

We’re paying $895. The other DJ we interviewed was $950. This seems to be about the norm for our area.

We paid $450 for ours, we got a super good deal, and went with a pretty big company too. But I think it all depends on the area you are getting married in.

were spending $1000 on ours, for 6 hours, seems like a lot to me but he’s the best around here and I want my guests to have a blast!

$1700 for 6 hours. We have a complicated venue though, and he has the right experience and equipment for it!

$600 to play from 6pm-1am. If we end up needing him a bit sooner, we can pay extra. He’s the husband of my third cousin and a professional DJ of course (I actually know him better than my cousin!) and has done receptions for one of my brothers and three of my cousins, so I’m excited to have him at ours.

$500 for 5 hours here. Definitely just depends on the area I think.

We paid $1250, and that was slightly reduced from his normal rate. He was considered the best in the area, and honestly, I am SO glad we didn’t skimp on the DJ…everyone had a blast with the music and dancing. I’ve been to weddings with a DJ or band that sucked and hardly anyone danced.
I would ask for references and call them before making your final decision…don’t base it on cost alone. This is THE party that you are throwing. Good luck!

Ours cost $100 an hour. We got him off Craigslist. You should have seen what some people were trying to charge. Shame on them!

I think it really depends on your area. Ours was $925.

our is $600 for the night, I can’t believe how much some want to charge, but we got a deal since I knew his sister.

We are paying $1400 but this includes setting up for the outside ceremony and providing a microphone for us…then playing music for cocktail hour on the patio area and then having a 3rd location (all at the same venue but stil 3 set ups) for the actual reception. So, for that I don’t think it’s so bad. It’s also 6 hours.

Great question- I’ve been wondering this too, none seem to post their prices online so I’m trying to figure out what ranges to expect too.
