Typical Wedding DJ Prices in Sutton
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 with associated overheads. You will find endless debates about pricing on DJ forums and Facebook groups, with some DJs quite happy to work for £150 per night and others that "wouldn't load the van for less than £500" for the same event! In short, if you shop around you will find there is a much wider range of pricing (and therefore service level) than in many other industries.
However, most people have never booked a wedding DJ before and have no idea when it comes to working out how much to budget. So we have consolidated the details for hundreds of recent weddings that have taken place in this area to come up with guideline pricing showing typical rates for wedding DJ hire, and we update these regularly to reflect current trends. One thing to note is that these numbers are obtained from people booking wedding DJs in Sutton rather than the DJs themselves, so they are more likely to be realistic.

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 formalities, cake and dress are forgotten. However for some, where the music is incidental, a basic service if often all that is required.
The biggest deciding factor in ensuring the quality of the wedding DJ service you hire is usually the budget. We urge you to consider this very carefully as an overall percentage cost of your event. Don't shop purely on price because many experienced yet affordable DJs will actively avoid clients that appear not to value the service and focus only on cost. You could miss out on a great (and affordable) DJ simply by starting the conversation with "How much for...". Instead we urge you to shop around on the suitability, reputation and level of service being offered - then, once you have narrowed down the options to a shortlist of suitable wedding DJs, THEN look at the pricing.
Here at needadisco.com we've done most of the legwork for you by pre-vetting all of the disco companies that we feature here and ranking them for you. Complete our simple enquiry form and we'll arrange for our members that cover your venue and have availability on your wedding day to send you quotes FREE OF CHARGE and without obligation.
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... and many platforms suffer from fake reviews
needadisco.com reviews can only be submitted by clients that have used the service to source their wedding DJ. 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 Sutton 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.
