How Much Does a Chicago, 60663 Wedding DJ Cost, Prices, Pricing
How much does a wedding DJ in Chicago, 60663 cost?
The average cost of hiring a wedding DJ in Chicago, 60663 varies from $100 to $300 an hour on average. Instead of asking, “how much does a wedding DJ cost?” ask “How much does a good wedding DJ cost?” Remember that old adage, “you get what you pay for.” Shopping for a wedding DJ (and hiring a wedding DJ) is definitely one of those times when you have to realize the cheapest is not always the best, because the truth is a good wedding DJ can make your big night a celebration everyone remembers; a lame DJ guarantees an early and boring ending to your special day. Note two key words: good and wedding, because a DJ that specializes in weddings has the experience and wedding song playlist that keeps your guests on the dance floor while coordinating the details with your wedding reception hall, photographer and videographer.
How do you know if you are hiring a lame DJ for your Chicago, 60663 wedding? (or what should I look for when hiring a wedding DJ?)

Don’t leave shopping for a wedding DJ until the last minute; the best wedding DJs’ calendars fill up fast. The earlier you start shopping for a wedding DJ and contacting DJs, the better chance you have of booking one of the best that fits the wedding DJ price you set. Though the cost is important, remember that you can’t rely on DJ prices to make your decision about hiring a wedding DJ---you may end up with a lame DJ. How do you know the signs of a lame DJ?

• Hidden costs and wedding reception overtime fees. Make sure you find out what the total cost of a wedding DJ includes; some lame DJs may be great with your guests on the dance floor, but lame when it comes to delivering a bill full of hidden costs and wedding reception overtime fees. Don’t fall victim; make sure you ask about the final total cost of a wedding DJ up front, and if they charge any overtime fees. Seek out DJs in Chicago, 60663 like Enchanted Evenings; our wedding DJ company offers an all-inclusive package with flexible options and no hidden charges. Our package includes everything you need for an awesome wedding reception as long as you need it, even if your wedding reception runs late. That’s right. And Enchanted Evenings packages include no hidden costs for set up or take down.

• Standard, non-personal wedding reception format and wedding song playlist. A lame DJ sees a wedding reception as a one-size-fits-all occasion. They use the same wedding song playlist, the same standard format for every weekend; they use your list of preferences as a suggestion, instead of as a DO NOT playlist or as a must play list. A good wedding DJ (such as Enchanted Evenings!) has an extensive music library consists of thousands of songs, including traditional favorites and the latest hits. We offer the widest possible variety of music so we can follow your must play list and your do not playlist. To make sure that we get your input, we offer flexible meeting solutions, including on-line planning software and office meetings, which fit in your schedule and allow you to tell us what you want.

• Outdated equipment. A lame DJ has outdated equipment, a small wedding song playlist, and no other option for keeping your guests dancing when their equipment breaks down. Look for a wedding DJ package (again, like Enchanted Evening) that includes a top quality, professional digital sound system, on-site back up equipment, two microphones including a wireless system and a special effects and intelligent lighting system that will create a fun and inviting atmosphere on your dance floor.

• No coordination with other vendors. You need a DJ with experience that can coordinate with your other wedding vendors when you need it; a lame DJ won’t coordinate all the important details, such as making sure your photographer and videographer are kept informed and are in the right place to capture the right moments (such as your first dance).
• See a wedding as just another event. Too many lame DJs do everything, without doing anything well. They take on as many events as possible, and treat your wedding as just another gig that pays. A good wedding DJ, like our Enchanted Evening DJs, has the experience to respond to your audience (and keep them moving!), a huge wedding song playlist to choose from (or to add to your do not playlist!), and the coordination experience to work with other vendors such as your wedding photographer, videographer and reception hall (i.e. during your garter toss, bouquet toss, first dance, father/daughter dance, etc.). And because of our massive wedding song playlist, we can also personalize our service to your wedding (such as retro songs for your vintage wedding, excluding songs on your do not playlist list, including songs on your wedding song playlist for your dances, etc.).

• Don’t offer any “extras” that you want at your wedding reception. Do you want more than just wedding reception entertainment? Contact Enchanted Evening DJs for professional wedding reception entertainment in Chicago, 60663 and any “extras” you want on your wedding day. We offer photo booths, reception lighting, your name in lights, enhanced sound system, photo montage, additional music at your wedding ceremony or during the cocktail hour---whatever you choose at a price that fits your wedding budget.
