We’re still shopping around, got a few quotes for over $1000 which is beyond our budget. We’re currently deciding between two that are more reasonable: one quoted us at $600 for 4 hours, we met with him and he’s really cool, another quoted us at $550 for 6 hours – obviously the better value (and as a plus, we’ve seen him DJ at another wedding) but we haven’t actually met with him to discuss details and get a feel for his personality.

Be willing to negotiate and work with what you have (whether it’s a non-Saturday wedding, a smallish guest list, whatever) because the second DJ originally quoted us at $850 for 4-5 hours with 2 DJ’s. Once I let him know it was a small, local Sunday wedding and we really only need one DJ, I got the quote of $550/6 hours.
