How much is too much for a reception DJ? How much did you pay? I'm trying to find a DJ, and I want to know the average cost. I'm also having a country wedding, so I have to factor in travel fees as well. I'm really uncomfortable with having a family member or guest do it, simply because I want them to enjoy themselves and I don't know anyone who would have more fun playing music and watching everyone else dance. If you did pay for one, did you consider it worth the money?
