Typical Wedding DJ Prices in Colchester

Firstly, a disclaimer. There are LOTS of mobile DJs and entertainment companies out there, mostly run by individuals - some as a part-time extension of their hobby and others as a full-time professional business. There are endless debates about pricing on DJ forums and Facebook groups, with some DJs happy to work for under £150 a night and others that "wouldn't load the van" for less than £600 for the same event. So there is a much wider range of pricing (and service level) than in many other industries, for example plumbers.

However, many people have never booked a DJ before and have no idea when it comes to how much they should budget. So what we've done is look at the details for literally hundreds of weddings that have taken place in and around the Colchester area to come up with some guideline pricing showing typical rates for common types of event. We update these price ranges on a regular basis to reflect current trends.

The only sure way to get accurate prices is to request FREE DJ quotes for your Colchester party or event.

Colchester Wedding DJ Booking Tips

For many, their choice of wedding DJ will make a dramatic difference to the success of their day. The evening disco is the lasting impression of your celebration long after the dress and cake are forgotten. For some, where the music is just incidental, a basic service is often all they need.

The biggest deciding factor in ensuring the quality of the wedding DJ service that you hire in Colchester is usually the budget. We urge you to consider this very carefully as an overall percentage of the cost of your event. Don't shop for a DJ in Colchester purely on price, because many affordable yet experienced DJs will actively avoid clients that appear not to value the service and focus only on cost. Instead, shop around on the suitability, reputation and level of service being offered - then, once you have a shortlist of suitable DJs you can then review the pricing.

Here at needadisco.com we've done much of the legwork for you by pre-vetting all of the Colchester disco companies featured here and ranking them for you. Complete our simple enquiry form and we'll arrange for all of our members that cover your venue and who are available to send you quotes FREE OF CHARGE and without obligation.



Online Reviews for mobile DJs

BE WARY OF ONLINE REVIEWS

Many review platforms such as Facebook and Google accept "reviews" from ANYONE whether or not they've actually used the service - including the DJ, the DJ's partner, the DJ's friends, the DJ's dog...

needadisco.com reviews can only be submitted by clients that have used the service including people like you partying in Colchester. We do not accept random reviews. We also think that reviews can go out of date quite quickly, so we do not count reviews that are more than 3 years old to be sure that you're getting an up-to-date picture. Also, our Colchester discos are clearly ranked on specific criteria such as audio quality, lighting quality, presentation, music choices, request handling, microphone use, audience interaction and more, so that you can quickly compare local DJ services.



Sample DJmark Award Image

CHECK FOR A DJMARK AWARD

All DJmark Award holding DJs in Colchester operate legally and with due regard for excellent customer service.

DJmark is the longest established and most rigorous awarding body for the UK mobile disco industry, working with mobile DJs to independently check paperwork, credentials and customer feedback. If you employ a DJmark Award holding DJ for your wedding or party in Colchester, you can be assured that you will be working with "one of the good guys". Learn more about DJmark and how booking an award holder can save you a lot of time and potential stress for your party in Colchester.



Communication is king

COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION...

Be very clear about your expectations for the event and TALK to your potential DJ about them. Don't be afraid to walk away if you're not confident in his/her abilities to deliver.

Do you want a straightforward 'same-as-everyone-else' mobile disco or are you looking for something a little different? Are you looking for a Colchester DJ who can rapidly switch genres to suit the guests ... or would you prefer a club-style DJ with a predetermined set and excellent beatmatching skills? Would you be happy with a silent DJ or would you like someone with microphone skills and the right presence to confidently make announcements and keep your guests informed?
