So I am definitely starting to suffer from sticker shock. How it took this long, I have no idea, because I was nervous about the total amount of a wedding from the beginning. Anyways, can anyone recommend a DJ that they went with who was under $1,000? Ideally for the whole event (Ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) at one venue but separate rooms.
Thanks in advance!

It really depends on what you get. IE if you want additional lighting effects it will cost you more. We booked Elegancia Entertainment (they are multicultural)! If you strictly just want DJ nothing else specify that with them and checked with your venue recommneded vendors.
Tommy Tunes Entertainment
In the Mix
Fade to Black NY
These are just a few I researched when we were looking and they have great reviews, Just let them know what you want and see if they can work w/your budget. Good Luck!!!!!

I paid under $1K for Spectrum but I wasn’t very happy with them. They didn’t go over anything with us before so it was a bit of a mess.

my daughters wedding planner has djs…i think they charge 950…and you get about 5 hours with lights and the sorts.
i saw that dj at a friends wedding we attended and we booked them as well.

@mmwar: We booked FM Enternatinment. Their most basic package for reception was below $1000. Contact Frank and he could probably work on price with you.

Our DJ (Enrique of BTL DJs) is NY based, but he traveled to the Hudson Valley for our wedding, so I’m sure LI would be no problem. We had him all night for under $1000, and he was AMAZING! Had everyone dancing – all ages, and really knew how to keep people on the floor.
My wedding is the first video on his page right now lol: http://www.btldjs.com/weddings#!__sample-mixes-videos
He is also really highly rated on Wedding Wire, and won The Knot Best of Weddings award for 2012, so we aren’t the only people who like him 🙂 Definitely recommend him!
