Atmosphere Productions: Hiring Your Wedding DJ: Costly Misconception #6

USING PRICE ALONE AS A DECIDING FACTOR

Wow! this is a biggie.
Of course, price is a factor when hiring your DJ, but don’t let it be the single deciding factor.

Is the highest priced performer always the best? Not necessarily, but on the other hand, hiring the least expensive entertainer is rarely the way to go either.  Inexperienced brides often mistakenly think of DJs as a “dime a dozen”, or a commodity.

The fact is that each DJ entertainer is unique. Like every profession, there are some who are great, others mediocre, and other who should never be allowed to perform!

You need to decide on the performer that is most qualified to perform your reception, that you are comfortable with (since the DJ will be representing you and your family), and that has the proper experience and credentials. Understand that DJs should not be hired by price alone and BEWARE of “suspiciously cheap” DJs, there may be a reason for it.

Instead, decide on a price range that you can afford, check out a few in that range, and choose the best performer.

Professional DJ rates are all over the board. They range from under $1,000 to over $3,500 for a complete reception, and are based on DJs popularity, demand, and availability.

Considering the fact that the DJ is responsible for over 80% of the success of your wedding reception, I recommend setting a range between 5% and 20% of you entire budget for your entertainment.
