If you have a ceremony at the venue, but in a different room or even outside. Make sure you ask if that is included in the price.

What type of equipment does the DJ Provide?

The type of equipment that a DJ provides should include the following. First of all, enough equipment to fill out the room. A room that holds 250 guests, may have an event with only 50 people.

Second, the equipment must be reliable. Professional Grade equipment is not the same as the equipment used at home. Some Trusted brands include; Pioneer, RCF, ElectroVoice, JBL, Rane, etc.. just to name a few. The better the brand, the more reliable it is, as a result, the higher the DJ Service will cost. The good news; you’ll have a great sound that won’t FAIL.

Finally, a DJ should provide atheistically pleasing equipment. Not only must it sound good, but it also has to look good too. Weddings are very beautiful events, the DJ Should also keep his area clean, and cables are hidden.

Why is the Wedding DJ Cost in Houston High?

The DJ is the person who will be there, 2 to 4 hours before the event starts, and leave one hour after the event ends. Additionally, there are about 10 to 20 hours of prep time. At least 10. Depending on the event, some events do require a lot more prep time, plus time consulting the client.

The experience is also another factor. More experienced DJs will require a little more of an investment for a better resulting event.

Basically, your event is in the hands of the Wedding Entertainer or Wedding DJ. The success of your event depends on him. That’s a lot of responsibility.

Are we expected to tip the DJ?

DJs are Services, just like any other service. Limo Drivers, Bartenders, etc… You are not required to tip us. I don’t really expect it. However, if you feel the DJ went above and beyond and rocked your wedding reception. One way to show gratitude is by slipping the DJ a $20, $50, or even $100 bill. We will be very grateful!
