What is the fair price for a DJ?

As the saying goes “you get what you pay for”, and unfortunately many people end up disappointed because their DJ experience was not what they expected, but paid between $200-$400 for an amateur DJ to save some cash. On the flip side though there are people that have paid sums amount of cash for a “good” DJ (and you would think that quantity means quality, but that's not always the case), and have also left disappointed.

On top of the other things that come with a wedding, a DJ is probably one of the last things a bride and groom think about for their wedding reception. But if you really think about it the DJ sets the tone for the reception/ party, so it would be wise if we put more thought as to who we hire as a DJ for our huge event.

So the question is, how much is too much and how low is too low. How do you steer clear from underpaying or overpaying? What is a fair price for a DJ? If you've made it this far you could potentially save yourself some money issues, or both! Like mentioned before a DJ is probably one of the last things on your mind, but in order to ensure you have a good experience your going to have to put some thought into it. Finding a fair price for a DJ will take some time on your part, but it'll be time well spent.

Here are some things to consider when looking for a DJ:

The type of event you are hosting (how extravagant).

The area you are planning to host it in (prizes will vary from place to place).

How long will you need the services for.

Also, ready? Take the time to do some research and read the reviews left on some of the websites you come across. If you ask me, most of the time I purchase a product or service due to the reviews left on the page! Sometimes you see a “too good to be true price” and your immediate response is to cross it, BUT again, TAKE THE TIME to read the reviews and make your final decision. This is where your “fair prices” come from, through research!
