How much is a wedding DJ in BC?

The cost for a wedding DJ in BC typically ranges from $1,000 to $5,000. This range varies based on the DJ's experience, the event's duration, and specific service requirements. 

Is it worth having a DJ at a wedding?

Absolutely! A DJ not only plays music but also sets the tone of your wedding, keeps the event flowing smoothly, and can adapt the music to the mood of your guests, making your special day more memorable.

Does the bride or groom pay for the DJ?

It varies. Traditionally, the bride's family might cover this cost, but nowadays, expenses can be split differently, depending on the couple's financial arrangement.

Can I skip a DJ for a wedding?

While you can use a playlist, a DJ brings a dynamic element to your wedding. They read the crowd, make announcements, and ensure a seamless musical experience.

How long does a DJ stay at a wedding?

In BC typically, a wedding DJ is booked for about 6-10 hours, which covers the ceremony, reception, and dancing. However, this can vary based on your specific needs.

Do you meet with your DJ before the wedding?

Yes, meeting beforehand allows the DJ to understand your preferences and the wedding's theme, ensuring a personalized experience.

Do you give a DJ a playlist?

You can provide a playlist or song suggestions to your DJ, but also allow them some flexibility to read the crowd and adjust the music accordingly.

Can I play Spotify at my wedding?

Yes, but using Spotify means you'll miss out on the expertise and adaptability of a live DJ. Plus, managing music on your own can add stress.

How early should a DJ show up to a wedding?

A DJ typically arrives 1-2 hours before the start of the event to set up and ensure everything runs smoothly.

From the beginning we felt like we were in great hands! We appreciated the time Jordan took with us over the phone to go over every detail. My husband loved that we could add playlists easily through his website.

Jordan made every effort to make our day perfect from the moment guests arrived until the moment they left. The music was perfect just for us and played absolutely flawlessly the whole day! 100% would recommend!

The entire tone of the day was set by the music, and even though we had some unique picks and required really specific cultural music, you were able to provide it all without complications for us.

Our guests had the time of their life, and our daughter and her fiancé were thrilled with the dance portion of the evening, as they stated: "Jordan knocked it out of the park."
