How much are people paying for evening entertainment e.g. DJ's and or Bands? I've seen a couple of people I like at a wedding show today but my h2b thinks they are expensive. TIA
I'm paying 775 for DJ but that covers hiring a white Led sparkling floor and uplighters as well x
£650 for a DJ, photo booth/mirror thingy and light up Mr & Mrs letters
I think our band was around £1700. We also had a photo booth on the go and a sweetie bar. To be blunt, your entertainment IS your wedding for everyone else. If the entertainment is rubbish then your whole day falls apart. People want to party, don’t choose that area of the day to watch your budget.
£200 for the Dj..
£950 for a band 3 x 45 min sets and music in-between. x
Our dj included in our package x
£950 for a Ceilidh band and DJ for our wedding
160 for the dj
We are paying £850 for dj photo booth 100 chair can gers and sashes chocolate fountain up lighting and candy cart
No lie, I'm making a Spotify playlist with the h2b that lasts the whole day and putting it on shuffle with speakers, portable to move between venues and everyone gets to listen to tunes without the cost. Not for everyone but deffo our style.
I can’t remember but I’m Pretty sure it was around £500 ish for the band and Dj. (They also played guitar at the ceremony)
I think prices are ridulicious tbh
Me and the hubby have 2 options.
Make a playlist and Connect the laptop to speakers. Or his friend is going to do it for free.
Don't spend out so much on something you can do yourself.
We're paying £170 for our DJ and he comes with lots of lighting equipment.
£350 for the DJ and lighting I think it was. Was fantastic! Bands seemed way too much to us, and a DJ was better for what we wanted
£330 for our dj but hes also in charge of making night flow with cake cutting, first dance n he provides all lighting for all room for meal n night
£350 with lights and online list for songs
About £350 for the DJ at our wedding x
Dj 150 but I know him. Going rate for wedding bands is expensive.
£1300 for a band playing from 8pm to midnight with a 45min-1hr break
£1500 for live band, DJ & photo booth xx
£1350 for the band - it's important to us to have live music so it really depends on what you value
My dj is included in my venue price but paying £300 for a singer/pianist for the ceremony and the wedding breakfast, total of 4 hours
We paid £850 for a solo artist for the day! He was worth every penny! He learnt 3 songs of our choice, performed all our ceremony songs live, live drinks reception, supplied music during our meal and another live set later followed by DJ set. He provided all lighting and also played the piano and guitar! He was absolutely fab! Xxx
Our DJ is £190, thinking of hiring a caricaturist for around £300-£350 but will depend on budget.
Looking through this ours is pretty steep! 😆 but for what we are getting it’s so bloody worth it. They are 2440 but are an eight piece band - horns section included and sound so fab I might be looking forward to them more atm 🤣
They are working over five hours though, and eight of them playing. We have budgeted on everything else to make sure we have a bloody good evening! I can’t wait!!
£800 for our band z
Our band was £600 for 2 people ...mates rates...normally £1000....then a disco for about £250 after as band played for 2 hours or so x
I’ve managed to get a DJ for £150!! Gotta pay an extra £50 to cover them as they’re not the DJ offered by the venue but it’s still saving us £150
We are paying £1000 for a band, a DJ is included with the venue. Definitely looking forward to it as they are great fun 🙂

£910 for a seven piece soul band, they do all the dj-ing too
We looked at bands and they started at about £1000 for a good one bit went with a dj in the end mainly for budget reasons and he was about £300

We have a dj for £170 and a singer for £250 xx
My dj was amazing Best Entertainments. They were reasonably price, professional and great with guests. It’s been 1.5 years since we got married and I still have people commenting about the music and how the dj did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor! Congrats and good luck x
Just a dj. About 250 I think x
Our DJ is £150, with the option for him to come in drag 😂😂

1400 for a 6 piece band for 2 x 60min set with our own first dance request, dj inbetween sets and lighting :) my h2b wasn't fussed on a live band but it was something i really wanted so weve budgeted for it.
We are only have a DJ which I’d included with out venue. But I have seen them for about £150-£170 . Found a photo booth company for around £250. We are doing our own sweet chart. It be a sweet table. Buying the jars then off to Markos for the sweets. Costing us around £50. So saving a good £100-200
£230 for dj for 6 hours x
We are getting married in Scotland with a mostly Scottish family and friends but some have never been to Scotland. We are wanting to get everyone involved and enjoying themselves so went for a Ceilidh band I know who also do lights and a Dj. Costing £1250 but that is also travel and accommodation added in for a 3 piece band. I do find it expensive but everywhere else I'm happily cutting back on before I started looking at entertainment, the day is for us to get married but we also want to enjoy ourselves for what will be a big part of the day time wise. I have been to events where entertainment hasn't been great and your mostly left a little bored after food when your not a host, from personal experiences. But it is your wedding day, you could do cheap entertainment with a quiz or board games rather than music :) look a different ideas and choose what you think is best that goes in your budget, if you really want something can you then cut back on other parts?
£250 for a DJ. We're looking into a photo booth too but they're expensive 😣
Playlist of our favourite songs to connect to our venues sound system, couple of disco balls to plug in and we're set. No expensive DJ for us.
There is a guy local to me in Buckinghamshire and he is fantastic! Dan Blaze - £700 for an all inclusive package for all day and night 12 finish - he will even entertain the kids during speeches and works hard to ensure you have a fantastic party!
