A wedding is the first time most couples will have to think about, talk about, and plan something big together. To start, you should first imagine the kind of wedding you want. Then, you need to think about how much youre willing to spend for it. What follows is a breakdown of your determined budget and the planned activities during your special day.
When you're trying to decide how to distribute your budget, you should have a sit-down with your partner. Each of you should pick your top 3 priorities for the wedding. Do this separately. And then later on, come together to outline your combined priorities.
Having a memorable wedding reception with great music, good food, and nice ambiance is the most common wedding priority. Music plays an important part in your wedding reception. Thus, hiring a professional to take care of the music is a critical decision. Most choices boil down to either having a band play at your wedding reception, or letting a DJ do his thing and entertain your guests.
If you decide to hire a DJ, you first need to determine how much you're willing to pay for one. Or, you need to identify the percentage of your wedding budget that you're willing to allot for one.
Then find out the price range of DJs in your area. A wedding DJ can cost somewhere from $900 to more than $5,000. The price will depend on various factors such as the type of DJ you want. Are you willing to settle for a basic, bargain DJ? Or are you looking for a wedding specialist?
If your wedding entertainment is important to you, you should be open to shell out some decent amount of cash, and hire the services of a top of the line DJ. A premium price though will guarantee premium experience.
When looking for one, stick to experience and reliability. Top of the line DJs have extensive wedding experience. They know how to customize an experience thats perfect for the couple and their guests. Theyll only offer the best in sound equipment, mixing skills, and knowledge of music.
There are various ways to working around your budget, but taking the cheapest option doesnt necessarily translate to money saved. In many cases, the price is an indication of quality. Thus, for a few more dollars, you can give yourself the peace of mind that your entertainment needs are covered. You can face your day stress-free and enjoy it.
A great wedding DJ is not something you can compromise on. Your wedding day is probably the most important day for you. You and your spouse both deserve to start your life together with an amazing celebration!
