Why does it seem like DJ prices are all over the place?

Don’t get a photo booth until you read this!

So, you’re planning your wedding, and when you get to the part where you choose your wedding DJ & entertainment you think to yourself, “Hmmm, I was at a wedding where there was a photo booth, and I really liked that.” Photo booths have been a popular option for a number of years now.  However, photo booths have a lot of limitations.  For starters they don’t work with all of the great technologies we use today.  They are also a

Why using an iPod instead of a DJ doesn’t save you money, and is a recipe for disaster.

The photo above is from an actual wedding reception that had 120 people there for dinner. Then the iPod playlist started, and now only a few remained. As you can see there is still a lot of daylight outside, so this had to have been taken before 8pm. No matter what these other bloggers try to tell you the iPod wedding just doesn’t cut it. We have noticed several websites including blogs, and even Good Morning America talk about using

Often times these are DJs that are hobbyists, and usually people
