The cost of wedding DJ services range anywhere from $1,100 to over $5,000, but pricing ultimately comes down to the experience you want to create for you and your guests. Here are some options:
Wedding Reception Entertainment
Everything you need to incorporate all the usual facets of a wedding cocktail hour and reception! Includes appropriate audio coverage for the number of guests you will have at the wedding, wireless microphone for toasts, and dance-effect lighting.
This isn’t just about the music. I want to make sure your guests hear not only the officiant but what you as the couple say. This is especially crucial when you are reading your own vows and not just repeating what the officiant says. And, if you’re having a beach ceremony, this is absolutely necessary. Sometimes it is a calm day, but most of the time you will be competing with the wind coming off the water. Included is a battery-powered speaker, 2 wireless lapel mics (one for the officiant, one for the groom), and audio inputs for scripture readings and/or a ceremony musician.
If you’re having a ballroom reception, your guests (and your photographer!) will love having the visual variety of your wedding palette on the wall. In addition to using static colors for cocktail hour and dinner, the uplights I use can further enhance the atmosphere by changing color to music when the open dancing starts.
Ultimate Wedding Lighting
I offer this for couples who want more than just what dance-effect lighting and uplights can provide. Spotlighting for the grand entrance and cake cut and all that comes with a lighting technician controlling everything to match the vibe that the music and your guests are building to!
MC-Only or DJ/MC with a Live Band
Having a live band at your wedding is great! There is a tangible energy that having live music offers – energy that is different than having a DJ. However, there are two important reasons to include a DJ/MC in the mix.
First, as the MC, my main focus is to keep the event timeline in order and maintain a smooth flow of events, while also remembering who is involved and making sure their names are pronounced correctly. Having an MC is especially important if the reception timeline needs to be adjusted and decisions are made while the band is playing. It is my job to communicate with the newlyweds, other vendors, and the band to make sure all transitions are seamless and timely. This allows the band to focus on what they do really well, without pulling them away to deal with outside distractions.
Secondly, having a DJ on hand carries the energy of the party and maintains the flow of the event whenever the band is on a break between sets. The worst thing that can happen to a good dance party is to have long stretches of silence!
With the uncertain times we are facing, not all of the guests that would typically attend your wedding will be able to because of the threat of exposure to COVID-19. What better way to share the moment of you say “I do” than by providing them the experience of being there for it!? Using a HD camera and a direct audio feed of the music along with the vows that are said, now your loved ones won’t have to miss out on such an important moment in your lives!
