Wedding DJ cost, price and fees are explored in this article and how much you can expect to pay in the UK for a wedding disco in 2019.
UK Wedding DJ Cost 2019
According to reports, there has been an increase in the cost of a Wedding DJ in 2019 compared to previous years. It’s also worth considering that some suppliers might look to add additional fees on top of the DJ’s standard price.
For example, an evening disco at a wedding might be quoted as seemingly cheap but be careful to explore the whole picture. Check the duration of the booking. Is the DJ charging extra to set up and pack down their equipment? Are they charging extra for travel costs and mileage? Are they expecting you to provide a meal or maybe even overnight accommodation? Are you paying for the sound and the DJ but you need to find extra finances for the lighting? Does the wedding DJ cost include VAT?
Most importantly be sure to check the booking and see what is and what is not included. A number of wedding DJs like to use add ons or upsells which might include mood lighting, dance floors, light-up letters and starcloth backdrops so be clear about the price quoted and service to be provided.

2019 Wedding Disco Pricing
Budgets for weddings are always stretched and Bride and Grooms are constantly looking at ways to save pennies and pounds on the cost of their wedding. Entertainment is traditionally an area where couples celebrating their marriage have looked to save money.
Typically other factors such as wedding venue, photographer, dress, flowers and catering are afforded more budget yet the wedding disco is likely to be the longest section of the special day.
2019 wedding DJ prices are seemingly rising. This is a trend which is reflected in the average wedding cost in the UK according to www.hitched.co.uk
Their survey discovered that a Bride and Groom nowadays will pay more for their honeymoon, engagement rings and alcohol. Entertainment prices have also risen but it’s worth considering that entertainment is not just the wedding DJ cost, it can also include the price of photobooth hire, the fees for a singer or string quartet during the daytime and any incidental extras like props and instant cameras placed on each table.
