August 2012 Weddings

DJ Question

Hi All,  I'm trying to book a DJ and have found one that I absolutely love.  He's a bit expensive, but I think I would feel so confident with him doing our wedding.  So I'm trying to think of ways to bring down his price and pretty much the only way is that we have him there for less time.  If I cut him down to a 5 hour time frame, it would save me $300.  This would mean we wouldn't have any music playing as people are arriving and we would knock a half hour off the dancing at the end, but I would definitely be more comfortable with what we'd be paying him.  What do you all think, is it worth it to cut down on the time period and is everyone else booking for five hours?  Sorry for the long post but I'm really struggling with this.
