$1000 to rent a sound system?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Our DJ friends from home are preparing mixes for us to play at our November beach wedding. We were hoping to rent a sound system, but are flabbergasted by the cost (way more than rates of vendors we've used in the U.S.). We were quoted nearly $1000 to rent a sound system for the ceremony and reception (it's $1500 for a DJ!, which I understand). Can anyone weigh in on whether this is the going rate?

 

Thanks!

Hi Sandy,

 

We need a speaker system with mic for 1 hour ceremony, 1 hour cocktails, and ~6 hours dinner/dancing. Nothing fancy, and no mixing equipment, just good quality speakers so that 100+ guests can hear a ceremony on the beach and then music during the reception. If you have any leads for a significantly more affordable price, we'd appreciate them! Thank you.

Hi,

 

I just got married in Cancun. I paid the hotel 150 for the sound system, microphone and all the fix ins for the wedding ceremony and it came with a technician. my dj company quoted me 300 i think  that is originally what the hotel quoted us but they gave us a deal since we had so many more people.

 

1500 for the reception is only a bit more than what i paid. but i wanted a really good dj with excellent reviews. and they delivered. it was dj mannia. amazing.
