Keep in your budget by providing your own music. Pick a list of CD's to accompany the ceremony, before and afterwards, and have someone be a DJ (I got my nephew to do it). We then used our karaoke machine for music for the reception and everyone had a great time!

The average cost of hiring a DJ in my city for a wedding ranges from $900 to $1,500, if not more. My husband and I cut that cost out by not having a DJ at our wedding.
I just got married in August. I thought I would have to pay about $200 for a pianist, then even more for a DJ for the reception.
