That is correct. Everyone has a budget in mind prior to starting to look even though they may say "I don't have a budget just yet". Some do real research before making a "hard budget" for the vendor service, and that could be very different from what they originally had in mind.What is a budget wedding client? Everybody has a budget in mind that they want to spend for a product or service.
So as far as a "Budget Wedding Client" in terms of budget for a DJ.
IN 2010, AND IN THE MD/DC/VA area I looked at it like this:
Bottom Feeder - Under $400
Low/Tight Budget - $400 to $650
Mid Level Budget - $700 to $1,000
High Level Budget - $1,050 to $1,500
Super High End - Anything above $1,500
Now after 11 years of inflation, and the long term experienced DJs sticking around and raising their rates all these years...
TODAY in 2021 I look at it like this:
Bottom Feeder Range - Under $550
Low/Tight Budget - $550 to $1,000
Mid Level Budget - $1,050 to $1,850
High Level Budget - $1,900 to $2,500
Super High End - Anything above $2,500
Just my take on how the market is currently here.
