A wedding planner is usually right behind the DJ guiding the DJ on the announcements and the music as per a time line. An experienced DJ can and in today's economic times easily takes on the responsibility of a wedding planner as well saving both time as well as money.
Can we replace a wedding planner?
It depends. With the right combination of professionals, the expertise of one wedding planner is either distributed across multiple professionals or maybe a single professional who looks after multiple jobs. On person whose roll is undeniably important throughout the duration of the wedding is the DJ. As long as the music and the announcements continue so does the wedding. Once that stops, the wedding comes to an end. A wedding planner is usually right behind the DJ guiding the DJ on the announcements and the music as per a time line.

Does it really work?
Yes, there are companies that provide the best professionals that double up as both Wedding DJs and Planners. The biggest benefit here is the price advantage. Though a low price tag of $600 for such a person surely makes this look like a misprint, but it's rather a steal.
Research to get the best professional wedding DJ
The only thing that you need to do now is to research and interview properly to find such professionals that will make your wedding ceremony the way you have been planning it since your childhood. The good thing is that social media sites like Facebook, MySpace etc are very handy in helping you narrow down to companies that provide such services. Start with references from friends and colleagues. Then have a look at their portfolio and previous events on sites like 800dj.com. If possible attend some upcoming wedding. If not then try and get some feedback from their older clients. Finally, interview the actual person to be absolutely sure that you and your wedding guests will have a memorable time together.
