Do you want to have a backyard wedding on a budget? The good news is, you’ll probably save a lot of money; the bad news is, you’ll still have to be careful to make sure that your wedding costs don’t skyrocket.

The main thing to realize is that nothing comes for free. Paying less money almost always means increasing personal effort, and sometimes stress. Saving money is awesome – just make sure you know what you’re getting into before you decide to grow your own flowers or cook your own food!

In a hurry? Click here to see a list of the total costs.

A quick note on costs. Prices for everything from DJs to tent rentals to photographers vary widely depending if you’re in an urban or rural area, how many competitors there are in your region, changing prices of goods, and more. To get more precise costs for your wedding, simply plug your own numbers into the formulas provided.

Also, don’t forget that you get what you pay for. The lower-end prices quoted for services here are for people hired off of Craigslist or acquaintances who are just getting started in the business. Doing research will help you find out what you want to pay for specific items.

Hope these thoughts on backyard wedding budgets help you out!

Are you still considering options for the entertainment at your wedding reception? Let me tell you that your decision should be a wedding DJ. While wedding DJs don?t offer everything you may want, they do give the most benefit when compared to the other options out there. If you are wondering what those benefits are, hold your horses because I?m going to tell you.

Cost

Wedding DJs cost less than live bands, sometimes in considerable amounts. Not only that, wedding DJs can usually hook you up with some sweet deals for perks such as extra lighting, an excellent sound system, and so on. Which pretty much means you get more for less. However, don?t pick the cheapest DJ around just to save up; the rule of thumb is if the price of the wedding DJ is too high or too low, tread with caution. Do your research on the pricing in your area.

Convenience

Since wedding DJs come usually as one-man packages, with only a possible addition of a member or two, you don?t need to have a huge venue to accommodate them. Some people have to book larger venues for their wedding reception despite having smaller crowds just because they hired a live band, which can be a real waste of money. Not only that, you won?t have a lot of extra mouths to feed during your reception.

Variety and Value For Money

While some argue that live bands provide a more fun atmosphere, you cannot deny that a wedding DJ makes up for what he/she lacks in variety. With an extensive playlist of carefully selected songs, a good quality DJ will never have trouble getting your crowd excited and uplifted throughout the reception. Guests will also be happy with the fact that they can request for pretty much any song, and the DJ will be able to play it. Live bands usually have a more narrow selection of songs because it is limited to what they can play.Besides that, wedding DJs usually can double as spokespersons, reducing your headache of finding someone else to handle the emceeing. DJs for wedding also need fewer breaks than live bands, so you?ll definitely be getting the most out of your money.

Looking at the benefits above, it?s no wonders that many couples are opting for wedding DJs instead of live bands or other forms of entertainment. You?d be making a smart choice if you opt for them too!
