The Importance of a Wedding DJ

The Importance of a Daytona Beach Wedding DJ

Daytona Beach Wedding DJ’s are some of the best in class, the importance of having one has never been so crucial. When considering an overall budget for a Daytona Beach wedding, often times the percent allocated to entertainment is incredibly minimal. The average cost for a wedding in 2017 was $33,391 (The Knot, 2018), yet the average spent on a reception DJ is only $1,231.  We want to change your mind on just how important a wedding DJ is for your Daytona Beach wedding, so you can appropriately budget.


Let’s be honest, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you get an invitation to a wedding? Is there an open bar, and is the music going to be any good? Both of these items fall under the “entertainment” umbrella. While the budget for entertainment has more than tripled from 2016 to 2017, the numbers for wedding DJ’s have not. 

The average wedding guest count for 2017 was 136. That means you have 136 friends and family members expecting to have an amazing time while celebrating your big day. It’s your wedding, of course, you are the star, but at the end of the day ensuring your guests have a great time is crucial. You want your friends and family to remember this day for years to come. As a Daytona Beach wedding DJ, my focus is to do just that. 


To add value to the money you spend on your wedding DJ, interview them. This doesn’t mean a formal sit down meeting asking for references, resumes, and background checks. Get to know the DJ, get to know their style, their favorite music. While we at SOTA Entertainment would love your business, we understand we may not be a match for every client. That’s why we put together a form you can use to find the best wedding DJ for your big day!
