If you’re looking at hiring entertainment for your engagement party there a few options: DJ, your own playlist or a band. Each of these options has their own benefits and drawbacks. Using your own playlist is usually the cheapest. You will have to hire some speakers and lights to get the party going with this option. If you have plenty of time to organise the playlist and speakers this option can be suitable, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
