DJ HELP! ( is this quote good?!)

Hi girls,

I was quoted $2150 for 5 hr's of music including my cocktail hr & reception, plus ceremony music, and some uplighting.

Is that a good price? what did you guys pay?

Thank you girls, You guys save me, i'm kinda clueless when it comes to pricing ( all my close friends eloped- smart women!)

    We're paying $2200 for DJ for the 4 hours of the reception. We get extras such as a video of the entire reception, still images taken from the video, a slide show to be played, some lighting effects, and more. I think your quote is pretty good based on all that you're getting. Hope this helped a little Smile

    I don't know how much uplighting costs, but I got  3 quotes for about or under $1500 for 4 hours without it.    That was just basic DJing though, I didn't want lights, plasma screens, props, etc.

    I am paying $1450 for 1DJ for 5 hours, dancefloor lighting and a Gobo.  I would think if your getting 5 hrs plus ceremony and uplighting that your probably in good shape.  Maybe shop around?  I know my DJ Primetime Entertainers was willing to work with me, I basically told them I got a cheaper quote from another DJ which I did and they dropped their price.  Its worth a try.

    I paid about $1100 for DJ for 4 hours at the reception, no giveaways, etc.

    I paid about $1000 for lighting for the reception.

    The $2150 sounded like a good price to me.

    I went to about 10 DJs in NJ and your pricing is right on! Especially includign some lighting, it is a good price! I'm ending up somewhere around 2400.

    we paid $2200 for 5 hours, a candid photog and the projection screen for the candids, and some sort of basic lighting (not uplighting)....so that sounds like a pretty good price....

    Sounds good. I was quoted $1800 for cocktail hour and reception, $500 to add uplighting, and another $200-800 for ceremony music depending on what I wanted.
