Finally- I finalized my playlist for the DJ today! My DJ will read the letter I wrote fo...
So FH & I have been searching for DJ's. Something that's been stressful for me with us planning our wedding so far away. We've searched WeddingWire looking for the top rated DJ's in our wedding area. We've found a DJ that I really like since he has several YouTube videos posted of his work & receptions he's done. But I just don't know if his prices are reasonable/industry average. Would some of you other lovely ladies on here help me out with your thoughts & knowledge...please and thank you :)
Audio + Lighting + Video Projection= $1250
This includes unlimited spin time, four truss towers that are wrapped in silk, spotlights for the grand entrance, first dance, cake cutting, etc, and them projecting our slideshow on either the venue wall, a 36 sq ft front projection screen, a 100 sq ft rear projection screen, or their 52" flat panel LCD TV.
Custom Gobo Monogram = $250
They will design the monogram for us, project it on the dance floor or a wall using a high lumen video projector, and let us keep the metal disc at the end of the night.
20 LED fixtures in my choice of colors. I can have multiple colors throughout the room, but I just cannot have each fixture change color throughout the night.
So grand total would be $2000, which seems high to me considering we can book another DJ in the area for 7 hours with a Gobo monogram & video projection but no up-lighting for $870. Now, I will say the less expensive DJ has 5 reviews on WeddingWire compared to this DJ's 50 reviews, he also has no video examples to show us, & his website is a little outdated/cheesy. I know entertainment is important & know I have read a lot that after the day is done, brides wish they would have spent more on their DJ...but I also want to make sure I'm not getting ripped off either just because I've never hired a DJ before in my life & have no idea/clue what industry average is for their services.
Thanks for any & all help Ladies!!
