You’re engaged – congratulations! The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and way back in your mind, you hear…cha-ching! and it isn’t the money sound you WANT to hear.
Yes, weddings can be expensive. The dress, ring, caterer, venue, flowers, and honeymoon – it adds up! But, as much as you want to stick to your budget, there is one area where going cheap can REALLY cost you. Entertainment.
Oh, cousin Eddie just got a new system? Sweet! But, pass his wonderful offering to play at your wedding, free of charge because the price you pay will be near and very dear to your heart.
How will it cost? Let us count the ways…
1. Everything else you have planned will pale in comparison.
And we don’t mean that in the way you think. The gorgeous gown, the beautiful flowers, the scrumptious food, and then, there was the entertainment. OY. See what we mean? A good wedding DJ is an investment in the success of your wedding. The biggest part of that success rides on how much fun and how entertained the guests were! Do you really want the shabby set up of a sub-par DJ service to be the stain in your venue? Didn’t think so.
2. There are those who have talent, and those who think they have talent.
You’ve heard the saying – you get what you pay for. Cheap is always cheap for a reason, and it’s no different with entertainers. A cheap DJ lacks knowledge and experience. A quality wedding DJ will have the proper training to be able to MC your wedding and ensure the entire reception flows smoothly.
3. Education pays.
There’s a reason they can call themselves professional. Most professional DJ’s have invested large amounts of time and money in ongoing training and education to stay at the top of their field. Cheap DJs often do it as a hobby or lack the funds to pursue continuing education.
4. Please don’t stop the music!
Trust in the fact that if the equipment isn’t top-notch, you will have the opposite saying at your wedding. Imagine, screeching sounds and rough starts and stops – half attempts to fade in and out while stumbling through a mumbled speech – do you want that? Or, would you rather have crystal clear sounds and music that effortless flows to match the temp of the room! Mhmmmm, you’re feeling it.
5. You’ve got that song, right?
Nothing worse than really wanting a song to play at your wedding and cousin Eddie just doesn’t have it. Oh, but he can download quickly! Professional DJ’s invest in the legal uses of all their music and stay on top of all radio and industry trends.
6. But, he had a business card!
What REALLY constitutes a business? More than a card, for sure. A Professional DJ has office space, a warehouse, staff, insurance, utilities and other business expenses. They have built a reputation, have been around for a long time and will be in business when your wedding day comes and goes.
7. Let me see your proof of insurance.
Now, while it is extremely unlikely that an accident occur, at the fault of your DJ or their equipment, at your wedding, wouldn’t you want to know it was covered? A cheap wedding DJ probably does not have insurance. A professional DJ company will have both liability and workers compensation insurance.
