The technician made the announcements for us. I was on the same boat as you. I was so concerned with announcements and flow and good music. I was so stressed out when they came back with that ridiculous request. Even the DJ was shocked. If you go through JSAV talk to Michell, he is in charge of everything. Once we got to ASP, we talked to him in person and requested the tech to make the announcements, but supposedly because we requested it late, he only had a Spanish speaking tech available. That was fine for us b/c we speak Spanish, but if you dont, speak with him early so you can get an English speaking tech.

I wouldn't mind making a playlist either and just renting the equipment, but I just don't want to have to ask any of my guests to 'man' it and make announcements, etc. Did you have someone as an Emcee (sp?) to help guide the flow of speeches, toasts, special dances, etc.?
Thank you - already very helpful!
