Wedding DJ Cost: Scratch Weddings
As I mentioned in my post about The Engagements Cover Band, music and entertainment is a big consideration for your wedding and one of the main questions you’ll have to answer is, “DJ or band?” Each option has its pros and cons but if you go with a DJ, I highly recommend Scratch Weddings.

The Main Point
My opinion may be considered biased since my fiancée and I actually decided to book a DJ from Scratch Weddings, but I’ll try to be objective. First of all, you’ll notice that I gave a price range this time instead of the usual bottom line estimate. The reason is because Scratch Weddings is one of our wedding vendors so out of courtesy, I asked them if it was ok for me to post the price we paid. They didn’t really like that idea since prices vary from person to person but felt it was ok for me to give a range. Since they are fantastic and easy to work with, I respect their wishes.
I think their prices are definitely amongst the best, and you will have a hard time finding a quality DJ for below that price range. In addition, taxes are already included, and they do not impose a mandatory gratuity. I really like their price transparency and lack of hidden costs. Keep in mind, their DJs can also serve as an emcee of sort, announcing bridal party names and moving the night along. This perk may help you reduce costs elsewhere.
At the same time, their selection is also superb. The website doesn’t list an exact DJ count, but Scratch Weddings has plenty of DJs who cover a wide range of music and style that will be sure to fit your needs. Scratch Weddings accepts less than 10% of all DJs who apply to partner with them so the selection process is rigorous ensuring you a high-quality DJ. I think each DJ may differ slightly in price but from the sense that I got, these prices are pretty similar across the board. If you are interested, my next post will cover how to get a good discount when you book a DJ through Scratch Weddings.
