Prices for the DJ

Hello everyone! I have been looking at the prices for a wedding DJ for my wedding in Mexico and they range from 3,000-5,000 USD. I wanted to ask you; is this the average price for a DJ in the US? I live in Italy and some of them are around 800 euro so I am really lost here.

  • Just a heads up, advertising for "likes" and contests does not go over well here and is a violation of the TOS. I'd consider removing your post.

    I'll just answer your actual question, not your solicitation.

    That DJ price seems pretty expensive actually. I'm in Chicago (overall higher average costs commonly) and we had a great DJ for $1600. Sure, there are more expensive options, but if all you're finding is $3000-$5000 I'd be pretty concerned. Sorry.

    I agree that the price for a DJ you're seeing in your area is pretty out of line.  Around here (Ohio) you can find a wedding DJ with at least some experience for $500 and up.  I think average for a GOOD DJ is more like $1000 - $1500.  The prices you are seeing are very high.
