Cost is important, but don't let it be the determining factor. If someone offers to DJ/MC your wedding for less than $300.00 BEWARE! I can't tell you how many times I have gotten a phone call from a panicked bride on the Wednesday or Thursday before her wedding on Saturday and she can't even find her DJ. When I ask, do you have a signed contract? After a long pause, the reply is always no. And when I ask how much her DJ was charging her, it's always below $300.00. Be sure to get every thing in writing and a signed contract.
