Quite often we are asked, How Much Do You Charge?
Our Prices start at $28,000... Just kidding. But, did we get your attention? : )
The answer to that is pretty simple. What are the options you would like to have at your wedding or event? There are a lot of variables that will determine your investment with our entertainment firm. We like to use the word investment because we believe you are truly investing your money to guarentee the ultimate success of your party. Like everything else we do, we take the boutique style approach to event design. What does that mean to you? Well it means we will plan every detail of your affair with you including: music selection (Do's & Dont's), formalities, announcements, guest requests, level of interaction, guidelines and much more. We will also build a custom party package with any and all options you select. At TLC Entertainment we feel no two clients are ever the same, therefor no two parties are ever the same. The options for your event are limitless, if you can dream it up, we can bring to life.
What is the best way I can receive a price quote?
Our firm prides itself in giving each client a personalized experience, that experience will start by calling us at 516.414.0914 and setting an intimate face to face meeting in our studio. Once here we will figure out what are your “must haves” and what are your “nice to have” options for your special day.
We also use this initial meeting to show our unique event guide and planning process which took over 25 years to perfect. This first meeting is also a great way to get to know one another better and gauge if we are a good fit for each other.
To give you a rough estimate, our wedding entertainment pricing including our DJ/MC talent, premier sound system, music/timeline planning and 4 hours of non-stop music respectfully starts at $1,500.00 and goes up from there depending on what kind of package we put together for you. The average couple spends
between $2,500.00/$3,500.00 on their dream wedding DJ entertainment package with us.
Allocating a Budget
Did you know that a recent survey reported that only 4-6% of a couples’ wedding budget is allocated for the most important element, the entertainment? The selection of music and type of entertainment can determine the success of your event. Statistics show that mobile DJs carry 75 to 80% of the responsibilities at the average wedding reception. Many couples attribute 80 to 90% of the success of their reception to their DJ. Yet only 5% (or less) of the total budget is spent on entertainment in many cases. On the other hand, most couples spare no expense on the food, making it the largest expense in the budget. Studies show that many will spend more on a vegetable platter than they are willing to spend on a professional mobile DJ. Ironically, most of the vegetable platter gets thrown out. With this in mind, think about what percentage of your event’s budget should be devoted to hiring professional entertainment that will guarantee the success of your event.
