Should I hire a DJ????

Recommended Posts

Hiring a DJ would be a great idea because you can request any song you would like to. And of course, they really what would be the appropriate and best songs to play with during the wedding. Go for it!

I have seen too many people try this and what always seems to happen is after dinner everyone leaves. Who wants that? Actually, would you really want to attend a wedding like this?




To be honest, I can't see why anyone wouldn't get a DJ for their reception, regardless of the cost. To me the DJ will be one of the most important parts of our party, considering they will control pretty much the whole reception. In fact, this is where I am spending a pretty good portion of our wedding budget because we want to make sure everything runs smoothly & everyone has a good time.One of the main things I want at my reception is for our guests to have fun, not confusion. I think that this is where the memories are going to be made. But that is just my personal opinion.


Just to give you a better way of thinking about this, what do you think you and your guests are going to remember more: The $20 - $60 per plate that is being served for dinner or your reception entertainment? If you think about it logically, if the avg DJ costs $1000 for their services and you have 175  guests at your reception, that works out to be about $5.72 per person. My way of thinking would be to down grade your dinner by $6 per plate & then you could afford a good DJ. Then all of your problems would be solved.


Again, I hope I didn't offend anyone. I seriously just think sometimes it is best to have another point of view.

I have been going back and forth on this issue and this thread is really making me lean towards a DJ, even if we don't have much dancing. I would cry if our reception flowed that way.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
