I have no idea you can probably contact the person that will rent you the sound system and ask him! But I think it wont be a problem!

That was a great and candid review! I am actually pretty excited about using the IPOD and Mijares. I never thought to ask him to bring his own IPOD. I wonder... just in case.

 

It's been soooo much fun going through various song lists and picking our favorites. I will definately take heed to your suggestions and run the final ideas/length of playlist by Mijares.

I really think its better with the profesional speakers, beacuse they will give you a good quality sound like a real DJ and will set people on a mood for dancing, but you can try that option also, I dont know how small your party will be maybe if they are a very fiew people it would be to much sound.

One of my BM's works at Plantronics and they make Ipod portable speakers. I think we are going to get the IM7 that plays the ipod. We figure its better to pay for the system and keep it rather than get a DJ. The good news is that you can also buy a microphone to attach to the speaker for speeches at the reception. Here is some advice from a guy who specializes in the audio section. Here is the company link Plantronics Home Page

 

Glad to answer your questions. It is possible to plug a microphone into the Aux-in jack on either the iM9 or iM7. But it needs to be the right kind of microphone -- must have a 3.5mm jack (or use of an adapter to get to 3.5mm) and the microphone must NOT require an electric current (must be a dynamic mic.) We have not tested this, but on paper this should work.

 

 

 

Which is better? Depends on the use. The iM7 puts out more sound and it has a built-in sub woofer, so you get natural, rich low frequencies. And the configuration of the speakers provides a wider sound Field (more room-filling sound). But it is not quite as transportable as the iM9. The iM9 sounds really great -- that is REALLY great! -- for a portable speaker system. It is designed to be more rugged for lots of travel. It does a pretty good job of filling a room with sound, but the sound field (the area of the sound source) is tighter than the iM7. The iM9 will charge and sync the iPod -- it likely that the user could locate the iM9 next to the computer. The iM7 will charge the iPod, but does not have sync'ing capability. The iM7 is truly an iPod sound system where the iM9 offers more flexibility of use with the iPod.

 

 

 

Hope this is helpful.

I almost forgot. I called Bose company to see if they I could attach a microphone to their system ($300.)and they said no. Not unless you want to buy a very expensive system. (like over $1100.)

Thanks for that info Natalie, that's what I was thinking of too, but with the Bose system, so thats good to know about the microphone. Although we are only having a small group, so we may be okay without a microphone, I'll have to investigate further.

We got the bose sound dock for x-mas and are planning on taking it down for our reception. We are having 30-40 people and think it will work out great. I am not concerned about the microphone since our group is small. I will let you know if 5 months how it works out!

If the speakers are from a standard dj's equipment you can use any mp3 player provided that there is the av output/input. Always check with the rental company since I think they come in different sizes.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
