One of the main reasons people go to the Austin Bridal Extravaganza is to get an idea of the price range that certain wedding vendors will charge. Understandably, one of the first questions people ask me as a DJ is always, “How much?”
But I’m sure some people are also asking right now, “Why not just Google it?” Try it if you want, but you will soon find that most DJs and wedding vendors do not list their prices online. Which is a big reason why people find value in going to the Extravaganza, because its the quickest way to get pricing and package information from vendors (and hopefully some deals as well). So why don’t DJs list their pricing and what is the range of pricing even like?
In order to save time for my future brides and grooms getting married in Central Texas, here is what you need to know about the price range of wedding DJs. You will find that review websites list their DJs in order of dollar signs ($), so I’m gonna break down essentially what you are paying for at each price range – from $ to $$$$ ::
Good news! During the second week of December I did a Holiday party every single week day. Bad news, I forgot to take pictures. However I did snap this awesome floral arrangement done by Jordan Flowers for the ILEA membership drive for my DJ table . Other Holiday parties were for The Blanton Museum, Austin Board of Realtors, UT Lonestars, and UT Sweethearts.
When AJ and Ro told me that they liked all music (country, hispanic, throwbacks, current), I told them they could 100% trust me with all the music, read the crowd, and rock the wedding. These are my personal favorite weddings to DJ and its a home-run out of the park every time. With their do not playlist consisting of just the chicken dance, I went to work. Needless to say it was a perfect wedding from start to finish (with the help of In Her Shoes Coordination) and one of my favorite weddings of 2017! Also was the second wedding in a row where Mandola’s Catering was there and I have to say its some of the best catering Italian food doing it today.
Take another look at that picture above. Notice the destroyed dance floor and Ethan looking like he just played a game of basketball against LeBron. This mitzvah was one of the craziest and most fun ones I’ve ever done. When I originally met Ethan, he was listing off the artists that he wanted to hear. These artists (Post Malone, Cardi B, Lil Pump) are rappers that I would usually play only downtown on 6th, but with the parents approval, I downloaded all the clean edits and I’ll just let the video below show how it went down. Worked alongside Stevie Weissman Events for this one and she was one of the best mitzvah coordinators Ive ever worked with!
Last year I put together a list of the Top 10 things you should know before you start planning your wedding, and to be honest, I didn’t expect it to get as many reads as it did, and I was shocked at the number of people who talked to me about it. Now with the wisdom of 2017 behind me, I decided to make a new updated version. SO without boring you anymore in this intro and going on and on (like, subscribe, follow) here it is in no particular order:
