How much money does a band or DJ cost at a wedding? Determining the budget for the entertainment programme at your wedding is often not that easy. After all, the wishes and ideas of each couple can be completely different. Which factors have an influence on the price and can I afford what I want at all?

Budget für das Entertainment

How much money does a band or DJ cost at a wedding?

First of all, you should think about what specific ideas you have. For example, it is very popular among wedding couples to book two different music acts and additionally a pure entertainer.

Your dream wedding could look like this, for example: You would like a violinist for your wedding ceremony (500 - 800 CHF), followed by a jazz trio at your cocktail party (1'200 CHF) and a band for the after dinner party (2'500 CHF).

Finally, a fire juggler (1'200 CHF) will provide the big surprise for your guests.

With costs of 5'400 to 5'700 CHF, this programme probably does not fit into every budget. So determine which wishes you would definitely like to fulfil and which are rather secondary for you.

Prices for a DJ  

How expensive the music and entertainment at your wedding will be in the end depends on your individual wishes. The prices for a DJ including all audio and lighting equipment, for example, start at CHF 800 to 1'500. However, your expenses can also be influenced by many other factors. So you have an influence on all costs incurred:

  • the location
  • the popularity and professionalism of the entertainer
  • the season
  • the number of guests
  • special requests.

Organising a wedding, worrying about prices and finding the right entertainer can be quite stressful. That's why we created It's so easy to get quotes and be guided by an expert throughout the booking process with no obligation.
