Tips for Hiring a DJ
According to surveys, 72% of brides say they would have spent more time choosing a DJ more carefully because they hired a DJ that was cheap, rather than one that was good.
Nearly 100% of brides say they would have spent more of their wedding budget on hiring a good DJ.
Before the wedding, brides say their highest priorities are their dress, reception location, and caterer. The DJ is at the bottom of their priorities. One week after their wedding, 78% of brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority!
81% of guests surveyed say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment at the reception.
Wedding guests don't stay at a reception because of the food. They stay if they are having a good time because the entertainment is good.
Brides typically spend only 5% of their wedding budget on a DJ, but most guests will remember the DJ more than anything else.
