Sarah- Yes please do let us know how it works out. We also have a small group 30-35 people.

A Nano is all that I have too and I think it will be fine. Just in case however I did plan on bringing a laptop with music.

 

The onky thing I am unsure about is whether ir not I should mix the special ceremon/ reception songs into the mix or put thiem in there own playlist so they ca be easily found.

 

Another ?

If you stop the playlist to play the first dance song for example can you resume the playlist at that point or does it start from the beginning?

Hello Jenetta,

The best way to do it is by creating different folders for each wedding part such as:
Ceremony
Cocktail
Dinner
Cake Cutting, 1st Dance, Father & Daugther, Mother & Groom
Reception
and placing them on the play list, this is the best way to do it otherwise it wouldnt be organized.

In case you have any doubts please let me know you have my email address.

This is interesting, because I had never imagined of using our IPods. So, are people who are using them still planning on hiring a DJ or who do you hire to control the music for the now. I think playlists are great, but I would also want the music to be somewhat spontaneous. I would be interested to hear what is the exact setup for doing this. Thanx fo the great info so far smile159.gif Click the image to open in full size.

The reason why they hire a DJ is beacuse they provide two different services:

1. DJ service includes all the equipment, MC´s, and mixing service charged by hour.

2. IPOD DJ service, they provide the speakers, MC´s and their service to control the IPOD the fee is charged for all the event.

Here is a thread from the Music & entertainment area on the forum.
I hope this helps! bunny_4.gif

Thank you for this post. I was wondering how I was going to use my ipod for the wedding and reception. Does anyone want to share what songs they are doing for their play list? I am trying to assemble as much jazz song ideas a possible for the cocktail hour as well as when they are waiting for me to come down the aisle. I think I am going to upolad my processional song also instead of having a live harpist (saves about 200 dollars). I just have to find a good harp version of Prelude in C by Bach.

 

I have a very rough draft list of songs that I am planning on using. Feel free to take a look.

 

Kori

Thanks for sharing your list, there is a thread somewhere around here that has lists from some people that have gotten married, I'm sorry I can't remember what it was called.

 

FI and I started working on ours the other night by taking the others posted here and deleting ones we might not want, but we didn't get very far!

This is great, i really want to use our Ipods too, and this advice is perfect.

 

What are people going for for the first song?

 

Also, for the ipod size, a nano could be fine, but I'd check how many gigs it is, that will affect how many songs you have...

 

If you are just going to play the list, 1 gig (1000 songs) could be fine, but if you want to have enough music to accept requests, you'll probably need more...

 

Some of the newer nanos have much more than 1 gig anyway...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
