Things you should know before booking an Indian Wedding DJ
- DJ services don’t always need to bring the sound system/speakers
Most of the venues in Toronto and the GTA already have a pre-installed sound system. What that means, is you don’t need to get a DJ to bring speakers, subwoofers or other logistics. The venue has a pre-build package for Sound & Lighting. Roughly $1000-$1500 will get you speakers for the whole venue, projectors and pin or spot lighting. DJs can just come and plug into the venue’s speakers and bring their microphones.
- Lighting and Projectors can be purchased separately from the venue
Usually the cost of lighting and projector does include a tech who will be on sight to troubleshoot everything. Your Indian wedding planner or your family can coordinate with the AV (Audiovisual) tech to play same day edits or photos from the wedding morning on the projectors.
If you are looking for dry ice or smoke machines for your first dance or other add-on it might be possible to get it directly for the venue also. You can always compare the prices and see what works better to get directly from the DJ company or the venue.
