1. Shop – Always shop around. With the internet, it is very easy to get quotes from different suppliers. Do not order the first supplier at the lowest price. Remember to look for the value of what you pay, not just the lowest price. You can get more value from a supplier that is not the cheapest! Always ask what comes with the service.

2. Book a Venue – If possible, have your wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue. This way you don't have to pay rent for two different courses. Many venues offer an outdoor ceremony area and an indoor reception for a flat fee. You can also take the help of a professional company to plan special occasions.

Just ask your wedding attendant to perform the service at your place. It also saves time and saves your guests from traveling to different places.

3. Be Your Own DJ – You can definitely “be your own DJ” for less. Just create a playlist of your favorite music, connect your laptop or iPod to the sound system on the site and you'll be listening to your favorite songs all night long! Keep in mind that your guests have different musical tastes, so include different genres.

4. Know when you need a DJ – Plan your schedule and find out when you really need a DJ to start playing. Keep in mind that DJs charge their time by the hour, so be sure to ask if setup and breakdowns are included in the price or charged separately.
