What is the average price for a Wedding DJ ? Are some DJ prices too expensive?
Price for a wedding DJ
I recently took a call from a client wishing to book a disco and DJ for his Wedding Reception. In conversation I said that if he phoned around for DJ quotes they may vary wildly. One top wedding venue in Essex quoted £400.
Another Wedding Venue in Essex has lighting above the dancefloor area. They ‘hire’ it to you, and will only turn the lights on if you’ve paid them £135 extra. That’s a shame if it’s not included within the venue hire price.
Many venues attempt to make it harder for outside DJs to perform, asking for this and that paperwork, perhaps because the venues owners miss out on their commission.
What annoys me, seeing it from a Wedding Entertainers view, is that various Brides and Grooms are being exploited with inflated prices and large unnecessary profits. Add them all together and it’s no wonder Wedding Receptions are so expensive.
When you book your DJ try and deal direct with your DJ. Avoid paying too higher price for a Wedding DJ. Apply the same logic to many other Wedding Services that you may require and you could save a considerable amount when planning your Wedding Reception Party.
