Over my twenty plus years of doing DJ entertainment I've sadly come across people who have said a lie in regards to the event they are having to get a cheaper price, I've never booked these inquiries, here is why. Have you ever lied to someone and they later found out that you lied to them? It's not very nice, is it.
Telling a supplier the wrong type of event could lead to you not getting the supplier you want as they may choose not to take you as a client.
The hours spent by a DJ for example for Wedding or Corporate Function will be greater than the planning involved in planning a party, the reason is there are lots of formal moments scheduled throughout the event that has to either be scripted or planned with other suppliers and venue staff. These are planned in advance, not on the spur of the moment.
Don't lie, be honest and you'll be rewarded with better service
