I am in between a DJ and the sound system for the reception on the beach. What do you ladies think? The sound system would less expensive but, would it look cheap?
You could certainly use the sound system it would be cheaper and they do a good job you could create a playlist on the ipod. At first we considered this and then at the end we went with the dj and cut expenses elsewhere. We brought our own centerpieces and got a credit for not using the Mexican trio that was included in the package. I also did not take the centerpieces that were part of my package and used them both for gazebo decor etc. Try and see what u can do without in the package and call Claudia to see what she could give u for it.
The DJ is worth every penney. He did a great job at our wedding.
