I would love to know about the sound quality too. This idea appeals to be because I am not keen on dance music which I believe is what the DJ plays. We could get our guests to request some of their favourite songsto dance to to add to the play list. How many people are you having at your poolside reception and for how long? What have they quoted you if you dont mind me asking.

I found my dress a week in a half ago and now I'm currently working on our wedding website and save the dates. I haven't been in touch with our WC in over a month; however, the last she got back to me was in regards to the poolside reception. I inquired about the cost involved with bringing our own music (CD or ipod) and she quoted $60 per hour for the CD/ipod docking station, speakers (30 PAX) and microphone.
Have any of the previous brides ever opt to bring your own music for your reception? If so, could you tell the difference in the sound quality of the music as opposed to using a DJ?? Your help is greatly appreciated!
