More about wedding DJs and music in Cumbria
Thinking of hiring a wedding DJ or band in Cumbria? Here are some questions couples frequently ask.
How much do wedding DJs cost in Cumbria?
Outside of big cities in the UK, you can expect to pay roughly £500-£800 for a wedding DJ. This will generally get you around 5 hours of music. Couples on a budget may prefer to hire a student or less experienced DJ for around £300. However, it's important to remember that a student DJ may not have DJed weddings before, and might not know how to pace the night, introduce dances, make announcements, and so on.
How many songs should I give my DJ for my wedding?
How many songs you give your DJ is completely up to you. However, keep in mind that although it's your night, not all of your guests will share your music taste, and an experienced DJ will know how to select a mix of songs that will appeal to everyone. We recommend giving your DJ a list of 10-20 songs and letting them choose the rest.
Is a live band or a DJ a better option for a wedding?
Both live bands and DJs have advantages and disadvantages. A DJ can offer a wider variety of music, and will take requests, which bands don't always do. A DJ is also generally cheaper than a live band, and takes up less space. However, a live band can offer a more energetic and interactive experience, and a good band will bring an atmosphere of fun and excitement to your event. If you have the budget for it, you could even opt for both a live band and a DJ. They often complement each other well.
