Finding a quality DJ for your wedding reception can be hard these days. With so many options, it’s hard to determine who has skills and talent – not just an iPod with a playlist. Considering you only get one shot to get it right, we’ve narrowed down the list and come up with the top 3 wedding DJ’s in Austin.
Before selecting a DJ, the main thing you need to think about is cost. How much do you plan on spending for a DJ? Two things you really shouldn’t skimp on for your wedding are a photographer and a DJ. The photos will last a lifetime (so they better be good), and the DJ is the main ingredient in making sure everyone has a good time. So, dishing out a little more on a premium DJ for your wedding is recommended. An easy way to add this into the budget is by going for a cheaper wedding venue.
By saving a few thousand dollars on an affordable wedding venue, you now have the luxury of splurging on a high-quality DJ that will keep your party going smoothly all night long. So, without further ado, here are our picks for the best wedding DJ’s in Austin.
