If music is a priority for your wedding GO BIG OR GO HOME

Hawaii DJ Budget Bride

Many couple struggle with trying to figure out how much to budget for a wedding DJ. What are the differences?   If your trying to figure this out than the video in this post from SH Weddings Youtube Channel is a Must See.

The video highlights the real life experiences of a professional wedding coordinator on what its like to work with a high-end DJ service vs. one that’s much more budget friendly.   I agree with many of the points she makes.  My favorite quote is “If music is a priority for your wedding GO BIG OR GO HOME with DJ services”.  

When asked what important about your reception many couples will often say “we want the reception to be fun” “we want everyone to have a great time”, or “we want to have an amazing dance party”.

Ask your self what important to you about your wedding? Plan and budget accordingly.  Your DJ will play a critical role in on your wedding day.

Points made in the video:

Budget DJs

  • Unprofessional.
  • Show up late.
  • Not prepared.
  • Often hard to reach.

Higher Priced DJs

  • Play great music and keep the dance floor FULL!
  • Very Professional.
  • Show up on time or early.
  • Well Prepared
  • Beat mix music with smooth transitions between songs.

Another avenue for resources on DJ budgets would be other vendors you are currently working with.  Ask your photographer, Wedding Coordinator, Venue manager, or Caterer on their experience working with different DJs and who they recommend and why.  Likely you will find that most Hawaii wedding professional will not recommend a budget DJ.
