My fiance and I have met with a couple DJs and the fees are (in my opinion) outrageous! Obviously, booking a DJ isn't something I do a lot so I prepared myself for the cost to exceed my expectations but holy mole! I was quoted $1,500.00 by the first one we met with then $2,495.00 by the second. Does anyone know what the going rate is for a decent "master of ceremonies"? Is it over $1,000? Call me ignorant but I seriously was thinking the more expensive DJ cost us $700 max for what we want. Any input, suggestions, or experience here?
