1. The length of your wedding

One of the neglecting parts of a couple that really doesn’t mind during the wedding planning process is to know the exact amount of hours that the DJ will perform. Another variable to consider is things that are time-consuming but never seen by the naked eye.

2. Your wedding DJs experience

DJ experiences is sometimes the way to calculate how much a DJ service. Typically, the longer the DJ experience the higher of a DJ cost of service.

3. The location

Not to mention that one of the factors that a couple to consider is the location of the wedding venue. Most DJ companies charge 1$/km outside of a 50 km area from their office. Furthermore, if your venue or location is outside of the city the couple will charge for the accommodation, time travel, and other related expenses that the DJ incurred.

4. If parking is free

This is usually the hidden fee that doesn’t see by an eye. Mostly, if your wedding venue is around Vancouver downtown the parking fee is upward of $50 for a day.

5. MC services

Many DJ companies, hiring DJ MC have an additional cost. While this is complementary in DJing.ca, our Wedding DJs are professional in public speaking controlling the crowd, and dealing with audiences.

6. Sound system, lighting, microphone & all other equipment

DJing.ca advised bringing your own equipment whether the venue has their own and free to use. Usually, some of the equipment like the microphone doesn’t match with the other equipment that the venue has. However, the professional sound system, lighting system, DJ controller are expensive and will definitely add your DJ service cost.

7. Set up and takedown

DJing.ca make sure that our DJs are arriving in the venue 2 hrs early to take into account traffic, weather condition and other possible problem. The average time to set up and take down is 30-60 mins. So the DJ will be one of the first and last people take off from the venue. This thing is one of the important variables that need to consider.

8. Account management

This cost that the Wedding DJ doesn’t talk to much! Believe it or not, the most time consuming and hardest part of the process is to plan your wedding program.

9. Gratuity

Like all tip industries, it is not a life and death situation to tip. However, our goal is to go above beyond your expectation and work hard to please our clients. We recommend budgeting 10-15% of the total bill to tip. This would be one of the variables that a couple needs to know while in the wedding process.


10. Taxes

Please be reminded that if you are hiring a professional Wedding DJ taxes are included for a service cost.


Generally, every one of these variables is price into the quote that you will get. So to sum up your inquiry of “How much does a wedding DJ cost?” it depends definitely on the specific details of your wedding.

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
