Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?
Reviews for Ashburn wedding djs

Slable provided DJ, MC, and uplighting services for our May 2015 wedding. Just as a reference point we are a mid-twenties couple and they did a fantastic job of sticking to our playlists and taking on guest requests. They were professional and easy to work with; they went the extra mile to ensure that all names were prounounced correctly and they made a valiant attempt at keeping the reception timeline on track. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for for DJ services!

If you want a DJ who will get your party dancing Maurice is your guy!! We hired him for our wedding, from the beginning I knew we were in the right hands with his quick responses and willingness to answer all questions. Maurice was great to work with, all his suggestions were helpful. We had all types of genres within our wedding playlist and nothing was missed. Maurice had us all dancing all of the night. He was in charge of the music for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and he created the perfect atmosphere. I cannot recommend Maurice enough! Look no further you’ve found a amazing DJ!

Donnell was amazing! He is very easy to work with! When we met him for the first time he listened to all of our concerns and was able to answer all of our questions. A DJ needed to be booked for my sister's wedding reception ASAP and he was so accommodating and understanding. Not to mention his prices are great! Everyone at the reception loved him! He took requests and was able to get a vibe of the kind of music our guest enjoyed. Certain things had to be changed around in the reception schedule but he went with the flow and everything went smoothly. The guests raved about him and kept coming up to me saying how great of a DJ he was! If you need a DJ for your event with really affordable prices, look no further because he's your guy. I will most definitely be recommending him to all my friends and family and will be hiring him in the future for any events that will need music entertainment! I know I've already said this a million times but thank you Donnell! We truly appreciate you!!!
