Wedding DJ prices in 2019
UK wedding DJ prices will be different from vendor to vendor smaller companies or someone just starting out may choose to either undercut or lower the rate of their mobile disco service just to break into the market so you may come across the odd person who manages to book a cheap wedding DJ for £200 or less for a 4 – 5 hour DJ set and you may even hear of some booking a DJ for cheaper than that, but I would say someone who charges so little for their services probably doesn’t have the professional experience to handle a big occasion such as such as your wedding reception.
As all professional wedding DJ’s know it’s not easy providing 5 hours or longer of constant music for all different age groups from the bride and groom to all the family and guest, as well as all the age groups usually ranging from young to old you’ve got to know your stuff.
Professional wedding DJ’s will also usually provide a better wedding DJ set up for weddings offering extras such as up lighters and white star lit cloth and maybe light up letters all these bonus added extras help to stay in line with the wedding theme, if you have a certain color theme you can ask to have the up lighters toned to your wedding colors.
But most start out DJ’s don’t tend to have the greatest equipment in the world let alone the added extras a bride and groom may want to add to their special occasion.
