Since I published this blog, I had an inquiry from a bride at an open house Saturday afternoon who was looking for a DJ for six hours. She didn't care about credentials or quality. She didn't research the cost of professional wedding DJs. Her only question was I got a quote from another DJ (who she didn't book, perhaps there was a reason she just didn't fork over the money yet) who would DJ six hours for $550.00. Will you match that? Wow. That's just under $100 per hour. I don't know any professional, successful and business minded DJs who do this as a full time business that would take on that!

When I asked her where she came up with the budget...she couldn't answer because she didn't do her homework. She just called one guy got the price and based everything around that. BAD MOVE. You seriously need to get not only quotes from at least 3 other vendors but be open to see how they differ! There is a reason why one DJ would charge $550 for six hours and another would charge $1200. RESEARCH the DIFFERENCE. Don't base prices of any wedding vendor by calling only one. Meet with each of them. Read and research reviews on them. Visit their place of business.

Remember you can't re-do the day again.
