Value Of A DJ


With the luxury of hindsight …

When planning your wedding, there’s so much to think about that in the early stages the wedding entertainment can sometimes get overlooked or possibly placed at the bottom of your ‘to do’ list. When you get to it, your first decision is normally whether you book a band or a DJ. But how much does it cost and what value do you place on your wedding entertainment?

Bride and Groom Magazine asked couples after their event for their thoughts regarding their chosen DJ or band, and this is what they discovered:

  • 72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment.
  • Almost 100% say they would have spent more of their budget on the entertainment.During wedding planning, Brides say their highest priority is their wedding dress, attire, followed by the reception site and caterer – reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities!
  • Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
  • When asked 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment (Band / DJ).
  • 65% of all couples that chose a band to entertain at their wedding reception, said, if they had it to do over again, they would have chosen a DJ!

Interesting reading and food for thought if you’re thinking about spending more on your shoes or wedding stationery than your evening’s entertainment …
