Anyone else having a very difficult time finding a reasonable DJ?
I'm a music teacher, and I DJ all of the events at my school. While I have never been an emcee for a wedding and I understand how different that is, I do know how DJing equipment works so I have a difficult time justifying the quotes I've been getting. Yesterday, I ended up literally breaking down into tears after talking with an extremely arrogant DJ who happens to be the uncle of a guy I grew up with. He lectured me on how I should know that the only thing that people remember is the music at a wedding and how I should know that quality DJs are higher in price. What was his quote? $4200 for 4 hours. With JUST the emcee and music. He said his wedding packages range from $4200 to $10,000. Our venue with all our food and alcohol for 85 guests is only $6400 so how can we justify that price for a DJ? I am just done. My FH is taking over looking for a DJ because I can't handle it anymore.
