Ours was $1,100 which included 6 hours of music (2 of those being just classical music during dinner..should have only been around 1 hour but our reception got delayed a bit), and this also included 3 hours of a photo booth and all of the pictures from it. 

We had a bit of a discount as one of DH’s best friends is related to the DJ.

Ours will be $1425, which includes the ceremony, mics, straight through to the end of reception (i dont think lights or anything). So they’ll arrive at 3pm to set up, 4pm ceremony, and reception until midnight. They will also be our MC lol.

We paid $4000 but we got a lot for that price. We had an MC, a DJ, a photobooth attendant, a photobooth, ceremony equipment, pre ceremony music, cocktail hour music and setup (in a different room), uplighting (18 individual uplights), dance floor lights and one hell of a night.

Wow, some pricey DJs on here!  Ours was about $900 for 6 hours of music, including ceremony mics/equipment, uplighting, etc.  He was really great and very well reviewed on WeddingWire and TheKnot.

Ours is right around $1,000. We’re getting an setup and equipment, an hour of cocktail music, an hour of soft music during dinner, and then music throughout the reception until the end of the night, plus dance floor lights and a custom projected monogram.

$1500 for DJ (8 hours + set up/breakdown time) and 3hrs of photobooth package in the Los Angeles area.  This was the cheapest package I could find for a reputable DJ – and he was awesome, totally worth the price!

 $1750 – this is after a friend discount (DJ was our friend’s cousin)

 

Included 5 hours and 24 uplights. Other DJ’s quoted me almost $3k for something similar. I’m in Houston, TX.

Ours is $1300 for sound/mics at the ceremony, cocktail hour and 4 hours at the reception, and 3 hours of a photobooth. That price also includes a $100 or $200 travel fee–I can’t remember the exact amount.

$1200 for 6 hours and a mic during the ceremony.  He was one of the cheaper options and I was so nervous about him.

He was fantastic!  Kept the dance floor packed and the party going.  So happy we went with him.

$1,300 for 7 hours. We’re actually having two (husband and wife team), and they’re doing lighting. They’re incredibly organized and pretty much planned our day for/with us. They’ve done so much of the work for me.

$1,500 for 6 hours in the DC area. We’ll have classical music playing before the ceremony starts, and we sent all of our songs we’d like to use for our DJ because we really wanted to use our own music collection.
